These quick & easy DIY Citrus Fizz Bath Bombs are super simple to make, and they’re a fantastic homemade gift idea for Mother’s Day, birthdays and more!
What You’ll Need:
- 1/2 cup Citric Acid
- 1 cup Baking Soda
- 2 tbsp Shea Butter, melted
- Essential Oils (I used Grapefruit and Citrus Fresh, 10 drops each)
- Bath Color Tablets (optional), crushed
- Spray bottle with a small amount of water
Mix together the citric acid and baking soda. Melt the shea butter in the microwave, and add it to the dry mixture along with the essential oils. Stir in the crushed color tablets if desired. The mixture will likely be too dry and crumbly to hold together, so you’ll need to add just a teeny bit of water. Spray the mixture 3-5 times with the spray bottle of water, stirring well after each spritz, until you are able to squeeze the mixture and have it hold together (it will still look dry and powdery though!). Adding water is the catalyst to the fizzing reaction, so make sure that the bottle is set to spray a fine mist, and only use the minimal amount necessary to achieve the correct consistency.
