Orange Cinnamon Bath Bombs
Who doesn’t love a bath bomb? This one is fizzy, fun, and will help lift your spirits even after the most stressful day. Start with baking soda and epsom salts for detoxification, then add in fragrant essential oils and orange rind for an indulgent treat for the senses. Wrap it up all pretty and you’ve got an unforgettable gift.
- 1 cup baking soda
- 3/4 cup of arrowroot powder
- 1/2 cup citric acid
- 1/2 cup epsom salts
- 35 drops of sweet orange EO
- 5 drops of cinnamon EO
- The grated rind of an orange
- A small spray bottle with water
If you want to see a hint of color, add a few drops of red food coloring to your spray bottle.
Sift all the dry ingredients (baking soda, citric acid, arrowroot powder and epsom salts) into a large bowl.
Add the essential oils a few drops at a time and stir well.
When you add the essential oils and later the water to this mix, you will see a little fizz. That’s the citric acid reacting with the liquid and that’s what will make your bath bomb fizz.
Spritz the dry ingredients with water (5 sprays) then mix. Repeat this two more times to ensure you have some water to tie the ingredients together.
Compact your mixture into the molds of your choice, and set aside overnight.
When all your bath bombs are dry, carefully pop them out of your mold.
Use 1-2 fizzy bath bombs for a relaxing bath.
