  • 1/4 cup Epsom Salt
  • 1/2 cup Baking Soda
  • 1/4 cup Corn Starch
  • 1/4 cup Citric Acid
  • 1 tablespoon Almond Oil
  • 10 drops of Ocean Scent
  • Food Color in Blue, Turquoise, or Sea Green
  • Bath Bomb Molds


  1. In a completely dry bowl, mix together all of your dry ingredients (Epsom Salt, Baking Soda, Corn Starch, & Citric Acid.)
  2. Separate your dry ingredients evenly into a bowl for each color you want to use. I used blue and white, so I just had 2 bowls.
  3. Add a drop of almond oil, ocean scent, and food color and mix evenly. Only add enough liquid ingredients until you are able to press the bath bomb ingredients together in your hand and it sticks together. Continue to add the liquid ingredients until this happens without letting the ingredients fizz and expand. If that happens, you may want to start over.
  4. Press your bath bomb ingredients firmly into the mold using sections of all your colors. Press it into the mold with the same pressure you would use to measure brown sugar.
  5. Close the mold holding the bath bomb ingredients firmly together. Allow them to set in the mold for 24 hours.
  6. Then remove the bath bombs from the mold and use anytime!


You can use dry color pigment in place of the liquid food color. If you do, add just a tiny mist of water when necessary.
