To use: Drop one or two bath bombs into a warm tub of water.
You can also use them for foot and hand baths; just break into smaller pieces.


  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1 cup citric acid powder
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup lavender infused coconut oil
  • 3-4 drops essential oil of lavender (optional)
  • 1-2 tablespoons dried lavender buds


  1. In a large bowl combine the baking soda, citric acid powder and cornstarch.
  2. On the stovetop in a water bath melt the coconut oil until liquid. You can also use the microwave just watch it and don’t overheat.
  3. Slowly stir the melted oil into the salt mixture until it resembles wet sand and will hold together when squeezed.
  4. If your mixture is too wet add a bit more baking soda, too dry a little more oil.
  5. Stir in the lavender buds and essential oil. I like to place a few buds inside my molds.
  6. Press bath bomb mixture into a mold (muffin tin, bath bomb mold, ice cube tray).
  7. Let sit for a few hours to harden, then unmold and let sit overnight.
  8. Store in a dry container.

Yield: 16 ounces, about 6 bath bombs
