DIY Gemstone Bath Bombs // From Gold Blog

|| What You'll Need ||

1 cup citric acid

1 cup baking soda

1/2 cup cornstarch

1/2 cup melted coconut oil

8-10 drops essential oil(s)

Silicone molds or paper cupcake liners if you don't have a mold

Food colouring 

  1. In a medium size bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients (citric acid, baking soda, cornstarch) and put aside.

  2. Next add 1-4 drops of food colouring to the dry ingredients. Start with 1-2 drops for lighter shade and add more until desired colour.

  3. In a separate bowl, combine the coconut oils with the essential oils (we used eucalyptus and lemongrass). While stirring, slowly add these to the bowl of dry ingredients. If you pour too quickly, you will create a reaction with the citric acid and it will fizz too much.

    4. Use your hands to knead all the ingredients together until they start to clump together. You'll know it's done when it feels almost like damp sand.

    5. Add a spoonful of the mixture into the mold you’re using, and pack it down nice and tight or else they will crumble when you take them out. We used this mold

    6. Let your bath bombs dry for at least 24 hours. 

Then draw a bath add some flowers petals and citrus fruit (the acid will detoxify your skin and it's high in vitamin C), pour yourself a glass of Rosé and RELAX!
