Bath Bombs
1 part baking soda (I used one cup for 12 mini cupcake sized bath bombs)
1/2 part citric acid
4-8 drops essential oil
witch hazel, in a spray bottle
dried lavender (optional)

Prep your mini muffin tin but adding dried lavender to the bottom of the pan, if using. Whisk together baking soda and citric acid until there are no clumps. Whisk in essential oils. Spritz the witch hazel on your citric acid/baking soda mixture until it just begins to clump in your hand. You don’t want to use too much or it will start the reaction before you put the bath bomb in the bath 🙂 Press the mixture as hard as you can into the muffin tin, this is what will keep the bomb together, don’t hesitate to really get out your aggression! Let them sit for 10 minutes and then turn out onto parchment paper to completely dry.
