  1. Add baking soda, Epsom salt, citric acid, cornstarch, and coloring pigment (if using) to a large bowl. Mix together well.

  2. Mix coconut oil, water, and essential oils together in a small bowl. Whisk vigorously to mix well.

  3. SLOWLY add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients, 1/2 teaspoon at a time. If it starts fizzing, add it more slowly. Keep going until fully incorporated. Mix together until the consistency is similar to wet sand.

  4. Add your bath bomb mixture to your bath bomb mold , packing tightly. Allow them to sit in the molds for about 4 hours, then remove and set on parchment paper or a baking sheet until fully dry, about 20 more hours.
