  1. Combine the baking soda, corn starch, Epsom salt and citric acid in a bowl. Gradually add the coconut oil, water, essential oil and food colouring (if using), stirring with a whisk, until thoroughly mixed.
  2. When the mixture is wet enough to stick together in clumps, press mixture firmly into molds until filled. Remove excess from the sides.
  3. Let the mixture sit in the molds for 5 minutes, then carefully remove bath bombs from the molds. Let them dry for 24 hours.
  4. Recipe makes enough for two round 2.5” diameter bath bombs.
