What you need

1 1/4 cups of baking soda or Bicarbonate of Soda
1/2 cup of citric acid
2 tsp of almond Oil or apricot kernel oil
1/2 tbs of water
3 vanilla pods
5 drops of food coloring
10-15 drops of vanilla fragrance oil or essential oil or vanilla beans from 2 pods.
1/4 tsp of fine glitter.


Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl and stir until well mixed.

Drizzle in the almond oil and stir until mixture is moistened. Add more oil and fragrance and stir until well mixed.

If the mixture is crumbly then add more oil or a dash of water.

Roll the mixture into a ball using your hands or press it into a lightly oiled mold. Use a bath bomb mold or a chocolate mold.

Let it slip out from the mold and then put the ball/shape on a sheet of wax paper and leave it to dry till it is hard. It may take several days.

Store them in a airtight container. Use 1 bath bomb per bath.
