How to make eucalyptus and lavender bath bombs recipe
First, combine the Epsom salt, baking soda, cornstarch, and citric acid into a large bowl and whisk to combine. Make sure to combine until there are no more lumps.
Secondly, add the olive oil, water, lavender oil, eucalyptus oil and mica powder into the jar and seal the lid.
Then, you will need to shake the jar until all the contents are fully combined.
Next, you will gradually combine both mixtures a bit at a time. You will need to whisk while slowly combining. If you do not gradually combine the ingredients or continuously mix, the ingredients will begin to fizz and that is not good.
Now, all of the wet ingredients should be in the dry mixture. Use the whisk to combine until fully incorporated and the color is consistent.
After, add the dried lavender into the 4 of the bath bomb molds.
Promptly put the mixture into the molds, making sure to pack in each side until full.
Finally, combine both sides of the mold, twisting slightly and let set. It’s best to give the molds a day to shape and set them to be on the safe side.
To finish, slowly remove the molds and place them into an airtight container or separate bags for storage.

- 2 oz. Epsom Salt
- 4 oz. Baking Soda
- 2 oz. Cornstarch
- 2 oz. Citric Acid
- 1 tbsp. Olive Oil
- 1/2 tbsp. Water
- 1 tbsp. Dried Lavender
- 20-30 drops Lavender Essential Oil
- 20-30 drops of Eucalyptus Oil
- 1/2 Teaspoon Purple Mica Powder
- Large Bowl
- Small Jar with Lid
- Bath Bomb Molds
- Measuring Cups

- Mix the dry ingredients first (Epsom salt, baking soda, cornstarch, and citric acid), using the whisk. Mix well to ensure there are no clumps.
- Pour the wet ingredients (olive oil, water, and essential oils), and the mica into the jar, secure the lid, and shake well.
- Very slowly add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture, about a few drops at a time, while whisking the entire time. If you’re not pouring slowly enough, or not continuously whisking, the mixture will start to fizz and you don’t want that to happen.
- Once all of the liquid has been poured into the dry mixture, mix very well until the color is consistent.
- Put dried lavender into the bottoms of 4 molds.
- Immediately fill the molds with the mixture, firmly stuffing each side full.
- Secure both parts of the mold together, give it a little twist and let set. I always give it about a day, just to be on the safe side.
- Carefully release bath bombs from molds and put them into an airtight container or individual cello bags for storage.
