Homemade Bath Bombs for Colds/Sinuses

A Beautiful Mess

The more research I do, the more I find varieties of  bath bombs that cater to specific “needs”. So, since it’s “that time of the year” where everyone seems to have a cold/issues with sinuses – what’s more perfect than a bath bomb to give some relief on those nuisances?

Step 1: Gather your supplies! 

1 cup Baking Soda

½ cup Citric Acid

½ cup Cornstarch

3 tbsp. Epsom salt

1 tbsp. Coconut oil

Witch Hazel w/ Spray Bottle

Peppermint Essential Oil

Eucalyptus Essential Oil

Food coloring

Bath bomb molds

Step 2: Mixing

Mix all of your dry ingredients in a bowl. Add in your coconut oil by mixing with your hands so you can really smooth it out! Split this mixture into 2 bowls, then you will put peppermint oil in one and your eucalyptus in the other and mix. Be sure not to use too much of the oils (anywhere from 5-10 depending on if you’re using pure oils)! In your eucalyptus bowl, add in 7-10 drops of food coloring and mix. In each of your bowls, start spraying about 4 squirts of your witch hazel to get it to the right consistency. You want it to be damp, but not wet so when you grab a handful it will form into a nice ball – only do about 4 sprays at a time to be sure to not overdo it. You are all set to start layering the mixes into the bath bomb molds! Once that’s complete, place them in the freezer for an hour (or more if you aren’t using them right away) and enjoy!
