My DIY Spelled lavender bath bomb recipe has arrived! I admit I have a slight obsession with lavender, but what witch doesn’t? Use in bath magick to promote relaxation, calmness, and tranquility. Perfect for a bath after a stressful day at work, or during a tough life situation. This bath bomb will fill your tub with a wonderful lavender scent. Your bath will be filled with lavender flowers!
-Some type of mold: I made mine using silicone ice cube trays - utilize things you already have to create molds.
-¼ cup dead sea salt (or epsom salt)
-3 tsp coconut or olive oil
-¼ cup cornstarch
-1 tsp lavender essential oil
-Purple Food Coloring
-1 tbs water
-¼ cup citric acid
-½ cup baking soda
-Dried lavender flowers
1. Whisk dry ingredients together in bowl. Mix cornstarch, baking soda, citric acid, dead sea salt, and lavender flowers (There is no set amount of lavender flowers, use as many as you would like)
2. Mix wet ingredients together in separate bowl - coconut oil, lavender essential oil, purple food coloring, and water.
3. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients very slowly (pouring fast can cause it to react). Whisk each time. It should begin to clump together. If it is not clumping very well, continue adding a small amount of water and oil until it does. Do this very slowly. While mixing clockwise, focus on your intention of creating a calm environment. Say a small spell, or focus on a happy time. Infuse the mixture with calming, happy vibes. Stir counterclockwise and think of your frustrations leaving - what is it that you want gone?
4. Next you will pack the mixture into a mold. I used a silicone ice cube tray, so utilize whatever you can. A standard ice cube tray would work, but the bath bombs will be much smaller - but it still works! Pack it together tightly.
5. Let it sit out overnight. If you want to use it the same night, stick it in the refrigerator until it becomes firm.
And there you have it! Don’t get frustrated if it doesn’t work out the first time, it took me a few tries! It gets easier the more you do it. I had trouble with getting the mixture to clump together, so I had to keep adding small amounts of oil and water until it finally did. Be careful not to add tons of water, or else it won’t react.
