DIY Reindeer Bath Bombs
- 1 cup baking soda
- ½ cup arrowroot powder
- ½ cup citric acid
- 1/2 cup pink himalayan salt, fine
- ¼ tsp beetroot powder, optional
- 21/2 tsps grapeseed or apricot kernel oil
- 15 drops peppermint essential oil
- 5 drops rosemary essential oil
- 1 tsps dried rosemary sprigs
- 1 to 2 tsps witch hazel or water, as needed
Add baking soda, arrowroot powder, citric acid, and pink himalayan salt to large glass mixing bowl. Whisk to blend and remove any clumps. Add optional beetroot powder for color. Next, pour grapeseed oil and each drop of essential oils into a separate, small glass bowl. Stir to combine. Then slowly pour wet ingredients into dry mixture, whisking as you go. If the mixture begins to fizz or foam, slow down.
After mixing the bowl of wet ingredients into dry mixture, scoop a small amount into your hand and squeeze it together to test the consistency. It should stick together and hold it’s shape. If the mixture is too dry and powdery, add a ½ teaspoon of witch hazel or water. Then mix well and test again. Repeat until you have the correct consistency.
Once the bath bomb mixture is ready, place a pinch of dried rosemary sprigs in the base of a silicone tray mold. Fill each opening in the silicone mold to the top. Allow to dry uncovered for 8 hours or overnight. Once dry, gently release bath bombs onto a soft flour sack towel. Store in a dry place or container until use.
Yields: 12 – 3 to 4 oz bath bombs.
