Cinnamon Sugar Snowball Bath Bomb
Isn’t this bath bomb pretty? I love how the cinnamon and sugar sparkle! This was my first attempt at making a bath bomb, and you know, it was super easy. If you purchase bath bombs, you know how expensive a habit it is. Making your own will save you a ton of money, plus you can customize your bath bomb to your taste. Also, these are perfect for gifts; you know Valentine’s Day is approaching! If you just set-aside just 1 hour, you can make customized bath bombs for all of your family and friends.
This recipe is from the Winter 2015 Chickpea Magazine. The original recipe called for canola oil, I used olive oil, but you can use any oil you prefer. Coconut and almond oil would also be excellent choices.
I added the cinnamon and sugar topping to mine, and scented the bath bomb with cinnamon essential oil. The mold I used was a vintage baking pan. You can use also use molds that are solely made for making bath bombs.
If you want to add dried herbs or flowers to the tops, add those to the mold first, then fill with the bath bomb mixture.
I tripled this recipe, which made 3 medium sized bath bombs.
Ingredients for bath bomb:
2 T organic baking soda
1 T organic corn starch
1 T epsom salts
1 T non-gmo citric acid
¼ t organic olive oil (or oil of your choice)
¾ t organic cinnamon oil
Ingredients for bath bomb topping:
1 T organic pure cane sugar
1 t organic cinnamon
Mix together the sugar and cinnamon, and sprinkle into your mold(s) so it covers the entire bottom. Set-aside.
In a medium sized bowl, mix together the baking soda, corn starch, epsom salts, and citric acid. Set-aside.
In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil and essential oil.
Add the wet mixture into the dry mixture. Stir mixture together until it resembles wet sand. You can add additional oil if needed to get the right consistency.
Firmly pack the mixture into each mold(s). Let the bath bombs dry for 24 hours before gently removing from the mold(s). If the bath bomb it still a little damp when removed, let air dry for a bit.
