Step 7: Add the coconut oil. This binds all the ingredients together, so your bath bombs don’t crumble when you touch them!

Step 8: Add the polysorbate 80. This helps the coconut oil disperse more evenly in your bath water, makes the bath bombs bubbly and prevents the mica from sticking to the side of the tub. 

Step 9: Add calendula essential oil. 

Step 10: Mix ingredients thoroughly. You may need to use your hands to break down any lumps and make sure everything is mixed in.

The mixture is perfect when it holds together when you press it into your hands and feels like wet sand.

Step 11: Mix in orange color if desired.  

Steps 12-15: Fill both sides of the mold with the mixture, press molds together and grind to remove the excess mixture. Gently tap each side of the mold to release the bombs.

Allow drying a minimum of 24 hours. If your climate is wet or cold, allow an additional 24 hours. My rule of thumb is that when it is hard to the touch, they are ready for the tub! Store in an airtight container until ready for use.
