Unwind and rejuvenate with a luxurious DIY Eucalyptus Bath Bomb. Infused with the soothing scent of fresh eucalyptus from your Rise Garden, this simple project will turn your bath time into a spa-like retreat.
What You'll Need:
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1/2 cup citric acid
- 1/2 cup Epsom salt
- 1/2 cup cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 10-15 drops of eucalyptus essential oil
- Fresh eucalyptus leaves from your Rise Garden
- Bath bomb molds
- Combine Dry Ingredients: In a mixing bowl, blend together baking soda, citric acid, Epsom salt, and cornstarch. Ensure an even distribution for a balanced fizzing experience.
- Add Wet Ingredients: Melt the coconut oil and add it to the dry mixture. Gradually pour in the eucalyptus essential oil while continuously mixing. The coconut oil helps bind the ingredients together.
- Pack the Molds: Place a few fresh eucalyptus leaves into the bottom of each bath bomb mold. Spoon the mixture into the molds, pressing down firmly to compact the mixture.
- Let Them Set: Allow the bath bombs to dry in the molds for at least 24 hours. This ensures they maintain their shape and strength.
- Unmold and Enjoy: Gently tap the molds to release the bath bombs. Drop one into your warm bathwater, and let the soothing eucalyptus scent envelop you.
