How to Make Lavender Bath Bombs Step by Step

Steps 1-6: In a large mixing bowl, add the baking soda, citric acid, dead sea salts and cornstarch. Whisk dry ingredients together.

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

Steps 10-11: Add 3 1/2 tablespoons of the Earl Grey tea and 1/2 tablespoons of the dried lavender. Mix well.

Steps 12-13: Add 1-2 drops of the lavender colorant. Mix well. Continue to add 1 drop of color until you achieve the color you desire.

Steps 14-17: Add a bit of the tea and lavender mixture into one side of the mold and gently add the bath bomb mixture until the mold is overflowing. Fill the other side of the mold with the mixture and press molds together and grind to remove excess mixture. Gently tap each side of the mold to release the bombs.

Allow to dry 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.
