Peppermint Bath Bombs

That Alpine Frost post has me ready for a little fresh snow! While I can’t make snow last year round I can conjure up a fresh bath bomb for refreshing and rejuvenating!

What You’ll Need:

  • 2 Cups Baking Soda
  • 1 Cup Citric Acid
  • 1 1/2 Cups Cornstarch
  • 1/2 Cup Epsom Salts
  • 25-35 Drops Mint Essential Oil
  • 10-15 Drops Red Food Coloring (Optional)
  • Witch Hazel (Preferably in a spray bottle!)
  • Bath Bomb Mold (Whatever shape you want!)
  1. Combine the baking soda, citric acid and epsom salts into a bowl. An optional step is to put the ingredients through a sieve to eliminate crumbs. You’ll want to mix the dry powders until no clumps are in the bowl.
  2. Slowly incorporate the essential oil into the powders. Knead the mix until it forms a crumbly dough. You may need to spray witch hazel to make it wet enough to stick!
  3. Once the mixture starts sticking together in your hand, gently press it into your mold. I recommend using a dedicated bath bomb mold or a meatballer to get a round shape! Just be sure it’s clean!
  4. If you want to add color you can either separate the batch into 2 containers and add color to one or you can “paint” it onto your molded bath bombs. This is purely for looks so it is optional! Just be careful not to use too much or you might stain your tub!

That’s it! Let the bath bombs sit for at least 12-24 hours before using so they can harden up! Once they’re dry you just drop them into the tub with the water running and you’ve got a fresh bath!

Pro Tip: Some brands of epsom salt come scents with essential oils already! If you can’t find an essential oil you want or don’t want to pay the sometimes high prices, this is a great option. Let me know how your bath bombs turn out!
