How to Make Fizzy Lemon Meringue Pie Bath Bombs:

Scroll down if you want to go straight to the printable recipe and here are some quick tips. It’s the citric acid that makes the bath bombs fizz and water that activates it.

That means, while making these, you must be careful with the amount of water you add. Because I’m in a humid area, I add a bit less water. If you are in a dry area you may need more. Just be sure that you are adding enough water to where the ingredients clump together when pressed – thus will firmly hold their shape in their mold.

Fizzing Bath Bombs also do well in a chilly environment. They don’t hold their shape as well during hot, hot summers. So I make my bath bombs in the fall or winter!

If you want to make them striped with color like mine, it’s easy! Just separate your finished mix before adding it to the molds into two bowls. In one bowl, add a tiny amount of yellow food color and mix thoroughly. You do not need to add dye to your other bowl. Then layer your mix into the molds alternating between the colorless and the yellow! Be sure to press each layer firmly together.

Fizzy Lemon Meringue Pie Bath Bombs

Serves 4
Prep time 15 minutes
If you love a good soak as much as I do, then you must try these Lemon Meringue Pie Bath Bombs. They are fruity, sweet and perfect for relaxing in the tub.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Baking Soda
  • 1/2 cup Corn Starch
  • 1/2 cup Citric Acid
  • 3 tablespoons Epsom Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Water
  • 2 teaspoons Coconut Oil
  • 30 drops Lemon Essential Oil
  • 15 drops Orange Essential Oil
  • 15 drops Vanilla Essential Oil
  • 2 tablespoons Finely Grated Lemon Zest (optional)
  • drop Lemon Food Coloring (optional)

Directions

1. In a bowl, mix together your epsom salt, citric acid, baking soda, and corn starch. If you are adding lemon zest, add that too!
2. Melt your coconut oil in a sunny window or on the stove. Combine it with the water and all of your essential oils.
3. Mix together all of your ingredients quickly and press it together. It should begin to clump or stick.
4. The amount of water is a bit variable - I'm in Houston, TX, a humid climate, so I need less water. If you are in a dry climate you may need more water. The goal is that the ingredients stick without creating fizz. Add more water to create your desired clumping.
5. Pack your mix into your molds pressing firmly and filling to the brim. Or if you want to make the colored layers like we did, split your mix in half and separate into 2 bowls. Add a few drops of yellow food coloring to 1 and mix thoroughly. Add large layers into your molds alternating between the yellow and the colorless mix. If you are alternating between 2 colors, pay special attention to pressing the different colored layers together in the molds.
6. Allow them to dry in their molds for at least 12 hours. One day is better.
7. To use your Lemon Meringue Pie Bath Bombs, just add it to any warm tub and watch the fizzy action take over!
