Homemade Lavender Bath Bomb Recipe with Organic Essential Oils
Want a truly indulgent bath experience? This easy homemade lavender bath bomb recipe is enriched with skin loving shea butter and apricot kernel oil and produces a very dense, concentrated fizz. Learn how to make these simple DIY lavender essential oil bath bombs now for an evening of self care!
I made these lavender bath bombs two ways. I used a Basic Guest Round Silicone Soap Mold as well as a plastic round two piece bath bomb mold. You can use any mold you like but be sure to keep it simple or you’ll have trouble getting them out of your mold in one piece. I found that with the silicone mold it works best if you press the mixed ingredients into the mold cavities all at once instead of layering it in. You’ll also want to give them extra drying time before unmolding. I recommend two days.
If it’s super humid where you live use a round two piece bath bomb mold – in which you press the two sides of the mold together around the mixed ingredients – or a meat baller as this works better and is less likely to fall apart when being unmolded. Plus you can unmold and wrap the round bath bombs sooner.
Homemade Lavender Bath Bomb Recipe
Using a digital scale weigh out the baking soda, citric acid, sea salt and kaolin clay into a glass bowl and mix together with a fork.
Now weigh out the shea butter into a small glass Pyrex measuring cup and heat in the microwave until melted. Weigh out the apricot kernel oil and stir into the melted shea butter.
Using a graduated plastic transfer pipette measure out the lavender essential oil and add to the melted shea butter and oil.
Slowly drizzle the melted butter and oil into the dry ingredients a little at a time mixing with a fork as you go until the dry ingredients stay clumped together when you press onto them.
Now firmly press the dry ingredients into your mold(s) of choice. Allow to dry, then remove from molds and wrap. This recipe will yield approximately five lavender bath fizzies if you use the guest silicone soap mold or about one and a half large bath bombs.
To use simply drop your homemade lavender bath bombs into the tub under running water.
