Galaxy Bath Bombs Materials:
• ½ cup Baking Soda
• ½ cup Citric Acid
• ¼ cup Cornstarch
• ¼ cup melted Coconut Oil
• Cosmetic Grade Mica pPowder: blue, black, and purple
• 4 drops Lavender Essential Oil – Try and use therapeutic grade essential oils as non-therapeutic grade essential oils may cause skin irritation.
• 1 medium Mixing Bowl
• 3 Small Bowls
• Bath Bomb Mold
• Craft Sticks (for mixing)
• Measuring Cup
• .15 cc Scoop
• Disposable Face Mask – mixing the dry ingredients may irritate your eyes/nose
Galaxy Bath Bombs Directions:
• In a medium sized mixing bowl combine baking soda, citric acid, and cornstarch; mix well.
• Separate the mixed dry ingredients evenly into 3 separate, small bowls.
• Using the .15 cc scoop, a scoop one scoop of blue color mica powder into a small; mix well.
• Using the .15 cc scoop, a scoop one scoop of black color mica powder into a small; mix well.
• Using the .15 cc scoop, a scoop one scoop of purple color mica powder into a small; mix well.
• At this point, you have three separate small bowls of color: blue, black and purple.
• Heat ¼ cup coconut oil in the microwave for about 30-40 seconds or until melted (be careful as this gets very hot quickly)
• Add the Lavender Essential Oil (feel free to use a different scent if you prefer it) to your melted coconut oil and stir.
• Slowly add a teaspoon at a time of melted coconut oil to each colored bowl and mix, repeat – distributing evenly (each bowl gets the same amount) until you have used all the coconut oil.
• Once all of the coconut oil is added, your mixtures should feel like damp sand.
• Start filling each side of the molds with your bath bomb mixture and press each mold together.
• Let dry for about 12 hours then carefully remove from your molds.
• Store in a dry place or in an airtight container (I honestly set mine out at the tub for decor – just do not let the bath bombs get damp or wet).
To Use the Galaxy Bath Bombs:
• Place one Galaxy Bath Bomb in the bottom of your shower or in your warm bath tub to release your bath bomb. Do not rub your eyes during/after use.
