How to make Bath Bombs

We all like a good soak in the tub when ever possible. Adding bath bombs to your bath gives a relaxing, yet invigorating feeling! But Bath Bombs can go as high as $6 each or more for a half dozen.   So why not make your own?   It’s simple with the right ingredients!  Am sure you already have the majority of the products already in your kitchen, if not a trip to the dollar store, craft store and or grocery store, you can acquire the right ingredients. Next step, start making your own! I’ve including a few recipes, I’ve found that are so easy and fun to make! So are you ready?  Here’s how!   

Stats:* Time: 10 minutes of work, several hours of drying time* Cost: About $2 per bomb if you make a dozen and more if you add biodegradable glitter—but prices drop if you make a big batch* Difficulty: Easy

Tools & Materials

  • 8 oz baking soda
  • 4 oz Epsom salt
  • 4 oz corn starch
  • 4 oz citric acid
  • Large bowl
  • Whisk
  • Biodegradable glitter or dried flower petals (optional)
  • 2.5 tablespoons coconut oil (or any other veggie oil)
  • About 1 tablespoon water
  • About 2 teaspoons essential oil (for scent)
  • 4-6 drops of food coloring
  • Small jar or bowl
  • 12-18 silicone molds


  1. First, mix the dry ingredients (baking soda, Epsom salt, corn starch, and citric acid) together in a large bowl. Use the whisk to make sure the mixture is clump-free. Baking soda, also known as sodium bicarbonate, is a key ingredient in this bathtub explosion: When the high pH powder reacts with a low pH acid, it produces carbon dioxide bubbles. Remember those baking soda and vinegar volcanoes you made in elementary school? Citric acid takes the place of vinegar in this chemical equation, but it doesn’t react with sodium bicarbonate until it gets wet. If you want, you can add visual decorations like biodegradable glitter into the mix. Just don’t use regular-old craft glitter, because it’s no good for our friends in the ocean.
  2. Now mix up the wet ingredients (oil, water, essential oil, and food coloring). The easiest way to get this party started is to put them in a jar and shake them up. This is the step where you need to make some important decisions about scent. You can tweak quantity to suit your taste, but you should use about two teaspoons total of essential oil or perfume. Try cinnamon, cocoa, peppermint, or coffee scents for the winter holidays (or a combination of all four to make a mocha-licious bath). Or go with something classic, like a spa-like eucalyptus and lavender mix or a straight-up sugary hit of vanilla extract. The possibilities are truly endless. It’s also time to make decisions about color. We recommend sticking to a single hue to avoid accidentally muddying the bath waters. Stick to something like 4-6 drops of food coloring total, but feel free to mix up different pigments.
  3. Slowly add the liquid to the dry mixture. Really slowly. Like a teaspoon at a time. Whisk as you go, and slow down if things start to look fizzy. You should end up with a mixture that just barely clumps together, like damp sand.
  4. Stuff that stuff into your silicone molds, ASAP. You don’t want the mix to dry out while it’s still in the bowl, which is why you should make sure you have enough molds to make a dozen or more bombs at once. Press the mixture down firmly into your silicone molds of choice.
  5. Let the bath bombs dry. If your mold has a lot of details in it, you might just want to give them a whole day to be safe. Then pop them out.
  6. Throw one into the tub and enjoy the explosive fruits of your labor. Bag the rest up in cellophane and make your friends and family love you forever.

Adding either CBD or Black seed oils to the Bath Bombs, helps with chronic pain, fibromyalgia, arthritis, joint pain, sore muscles, among other medical issues!   Although no medical claims, we offer good advice!

CBD Muscle Tension Bath Bomb

• ½ cup baking soda
• 2 tablespoons cream of tartar
• 1/3 cup unscented Epsom salt
• 2 tablespoons coconut oil
• 1 ½ droppers of CBD oil
1) Mix Epsom salt with baking soda and cream of tartar together, breaking any clumps as you mix.
2) Blend into the Epsom salt mix the CBD and coconut oil. You may need to spritz or sprinkle lightly with some water for better mixing consistency) It should be slightly moist but still crumbly.
3) Spoon mixture into molds and allow to set for 4 hours. Once set pop out of molds.

Making your own Bath Bombs – Citrus Scent!

Supplies Needed for Homemade Bath Bombs:

  • Baking soda
  • Citric acid
  • Epsom salt
  • Cornstarch
  • Coconut oil
  • Essential oils (optional, but recommended)
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Small mixing bowl (or glass measuring cup with a spout)
  • Measuring cups/spoons
  • Bath bomb molds (or muffin tin)
  • If gifting: Plastic molds you can give away or plastic used for shrink wrapping
  • Powdered all-natural food coloring
  • Prizes to put inside
  • Rubber gloves

Homemade Natural Bath Bombs


  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup citric acid, anything acidic can damage some countertops (especially marble) so be careful!
  • 1/2 cup Epsom salt, recommended to me by my chiropractor to help with sore muscles
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons all natural food coloring, optional (natural powdered food coloring activates when wet in the tub and will not stain)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted/warm
  • 1 teaspoon water, do not use more than this!
  • 10 drops your favorite essential oil, we used Plant Therapy essential oils
  • prizes to go inside – optional!, (we used “Magic Grow Capsules” that expand when wet)

    1. In a large bowl whisk together the baking soda, citric acid, Epsom salt, cornstarch and (only if using) powdered food coloring.
    2. In a separate small bowl combine the melted coconut oil, water and essential oils. (We used peppermint, but I’m guessing that this would work great with lavender, sweet orange or chamomile.)
    3. While continuously whisking, very slowly drizzle the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients until well combined. The outcome (as pictured below) should be similar to a dry, crumbly sand and should not be a “wet” consistency. Warning: If mixture gets too wet it will activate the fizzy part of the bath bomb too soon!
    4. TIGHTLY pack the mixture into each side of the mold then press the two sides together. Ideally let it stay in the mold overnight, then lightly tap around the mold with a spoon to very carefully open and remove bath bomb. Finished product will still be somewhat fragile, so be careful!
    5. A Note about Molds and Gifting: I’ve read the stainless steel molds work best, so that’s what we used with no problems. Bath Bombs (both homemade and store bought) can be fragile though, so we plan to transfer into same-size plastic molds for gifting. Alternatively, you can use a hair dryer on shrink wrap baggies made for the purpose of packaging bath bombs. I ordered a set that includes both options for our gifts this year. Either way, I would definitely make sure the DIY bath bombs are protected before handing them over!

Relaxing Lavender Bath Bombs

Cook time 1 hour | Total time 1 hour | Recipe type: Bath Bombs | Serves: 7 bath bombs


  • Stainless Steel Bath Bomb Mold
  • 32 oz. Baking Soda
  • 16 oz. Citric Acid
  • 4 oz. Extra Fine Epsom Salt
  • 2 oz. Borage Oil
  • 0.7 oz. Polysorbate 80
  • 0.3 oz. Lavender 40/42 Essential Oil
  • About 12 drops Lilac La Bomb Colorant
  • Dried Lavender
  • Witch Hazel in a Spray Bottle


  1. In a small container, add 2 ounces of borage oil, 0.7 ounces of polysorbate 80, 0.3 ounces of lavender 40/42 essential oil, and about 12 drops of Lilac La Bomb Colorant. Use a spoon to thoroughly mix all the ingredients together. The colorant won’t incorporate fully, but that’s okay.
  2. In a large container, add 32 ounces of baking soda and 16 ounces of citric acid. To get rid of clumps, push the powder through a sifter or break them up with your fingers. Citric acid has a tendency to take off nail polish, so wear gloves to protect your manicure. Add 4 ounces of Epsom salt. Thoroughly stir the ingredients together.
  3. Add the oil to the dry ingredients. Use your hands to thoroughly mix the dry and wet ingredients together.
  4. Check the consistency of the bath bomb mixture. The perfect consistency is similar to wet sand that holds its shape when squeezed. If it’s too dry, use one hand to spritz the mixture with witch hazel and one to mix. Continue spritzing until the mixture holds its shape.
  5. Place a pinch of dried lavender in the center of one half of the Stainless Steel Bath Bomb Mold.
  6. Fill both halves of the mold with bath bomb mixture and press it into the molds. You don’t need to press too hard – it helps the bath bomb halves stick together if some of the mixture is loose on top. Once both halves are full, press them firmly together.
  7. Very gently, pull the top half of the mold away while twisting. It can be a little tricky to get the bath bombs to stick together, but practice makes perfect. To safely unmold the other half, place the top of the mold back on, flip the bath bomb over, and release the other side by twisting and pulling away gently.
  8. Place the bath bomb on the counter or in a container that will hold them in place without rolling away. We used the 6 Cavity Silicone Dome Mold. You can also use a large muffin tin or a soft surface like foam. Allow the bath bombs to fully dry and harden overnight. Once you’re ready to use, place in hot bath water and enjoy!

Making your own bath bombs can be so much fun, even for your young adults and teenagers! Make it a group project! Enjoy!

Hi Friend,

It’s me Katharine, your friendly Biotrust Affiliate!  Am here to provide  you another amazing Biotrust offer, Collagen Protein!  Now this from Joel….

Hi, Joel Marion here, BioTRUST co-founder, with some exciting news!

You likely already know that many health experts consider collagen the closest thing on earth to a real “fountain of youth” — especially in terms of helping your skin, hair, joints, and gut health.

And it’s really no surprise collagen is so key to anti-aging, because collagen actually makes up 75% of your skin.

It makes up 70% to 80% of your ligaments, tendons, and joints, and 90% of our bones, nails and hair.

Here’s BIG PROBLEM #1, though…

By the time people hit “middle age,” their bodies typically produce less than half the collagen they did in youth – and they increasingly produce less with each passing year.

The good news? You can escalate the collagen in your body again by consuming it.

BIG PROBLEM #2, though, is that most people are consuming the wrong types, and see little to no benefit at all.

It’s no wonder so many people look and feel OLDER than their actual age!

First of all, with collagen it can be extremely difficult to increase the right types and proportions in your body to actually gain all the amazing benefits.

You need five different types of collagen in particular to experience powerful results, yet bone broth and so many of the supplements, like gelatin and collagen powders, only provide you one or two types at most.

Most of those supplements are also not complete proteins, which means you’re not getting the full benefits only complete proteins provide.

What’s more, most collagen and bone broth powders don’t dissolve well in cold or room temperature liquids, leaving a coagulated, clumpy mess at the bottom of your glass that’s unpleasant to drink.

Plus, they taste and smell bad, and they can ruin the taste of whatever you mix them in.

And finally, this one is rather scary: Recent independent testing from the nonprofit Consumer Wellness Center found that popular collagen and bone broth products can contain a range of potential toxins, including antibiotics, prescription drug metabolites, parabens, steriods, and insecticides.

So, not only are so many collagen and bone broths ineffective, but they could even cause you harm!

The GREAT news? That all changes now.

Introducing Ageless Multi-Collagen Protein™… the lab-tested safe, highly effective, no-clump, no-taste collagen!

Not only does Ageless Multi-Collagen Protein dissolve quickly and easily in hot or cool beverages, it also contains all FIVE key collagen types (I, II, III, V, and X) from FOUR different food sources:

Hydrolyzed collagen peptides from grass-fed, pasture-raised cattle (types I and III)

Hydrolyzed collagen peptides from sustainable fish (types I and III)

A unique and patented eggshell membrane (types I, V, and X)

Undenatured collagen naturally-sourced from chicken (type II)
This is like getting FIVE collagen products in ONE!

Furthermore, these are provided in the scientifically correct proportions you need to gain maximum benefit from the collagen.

And as you see above, unlike other brands, our collagen is naturally “hydrolyzed.”

This makes a monumental difference, because it means the collagen is broken down into peptides that — unlike collagen from bone broth and other supplements — your body can far more rapidly and easily digest and utilize to your advantage. Not only that, collagen peptides specifically trigger the body to manufacture more collagen and hyaluronic acid, a key substance that hydrates skin and lubricates joints.

What’s more, hydrolyzed collagen peptides mix easily with hot or cold beverages so you aren’t left with a coagulated clump of goo in your favorite beverage. Now you can “dump the clumps”!

Another big difference that sets Ageless Multi-Collagen Protein apart from other collagen supplements?

It contains all the essential amino acids (EAAs) you need — including a naturally fermented form of tryptophan, which is missing from virtually all other collagen powders, and the few collagen products that do have it use a synthetic form of tryptophan.

This makes it a complete protein, so with 10 grams of protein per serving, you can feel good that you’re contributing to your healthy high-protein diet and helping your body look and feel its best.

And finally… we are passionate about better health, and we promise Ageless Multi-Collagen is free from artificial colors, flavors, and sweeteners, GMOs, antibiotics, and rBGH and rBST (synthetic growth hormones and steroids). Further, we make sure our ingredients are sustainably sourced and cruelty-free. Our bovine collagen is also grass-fed and pasture raised. We take every step to give you the highest quality, safety, and efficacy.

This means all ingredients are independently lab tested for purity and potency and come with a certificate of analysis for verification. We work only with top-tier manufacturers that strictly follow Good Manufacturing Processes (GMP). Even after our products are sealed, we take things further still by sending samples to independent 3rd party labs for testing to 100% verify our ingredients are safe and match the amounts on the labels.

So, if you want the highest quality collagen on the market, you’ve come to the right place!


Unlike many collagen, bone broth, and gelatin supplements, which only mix with hot liquids, Ageless Multi-Collagen Protein dissolves easily in both hot and cool liquids, with no clumping, because it’s naturally hydrolyzed.

And unlike many other collagen, bone broth, and gelatin supplements that frankly smell and taste like fish or “old bones,” Ageless Multi-Collagen Protein is truly odorless and tasteless (in a good way).

That means you simply add one scoop to your beverage of choice — like protein shakes, smoothies, and your morning coffee — then mix and enjoy. Heck, you can even add it to your favorite baked goods recipes, and you won’t taste any difference — but your skin, hair, gut, muscles and joints will thank you.


“I’ve been adding Ageless Multi-Collagen to my coffee every morning for about two weeks now. So easy, and you can’t taste it at all. Best of all, I really am seeing a big difference in the health of my skin and hair when I look in the mirror.”

“I follow a Paleo diet and this Ageless Multi-Collagen is a God-send. BioTrust is right on the mark by making sure it has the 5 important types of collagen, and I love that someone has finally made a collagen with zero taste or smell. A+!”

“It’s rare to find a ‘one-stop-shop’ collagen supplement that’s great for skin, joint, and gut health. BioTrust nailed it, though, with Ageless Multi-Collagen. I add it to every protein shake!”

“Unlike every other collagen supplement I’ve tried (and I’ve tried many), Ageless Multi-Collagen has no taste or odor and mixes perfectly. I add it to my morning smoothies and sometimes my hot tea.”

“Other collagen products leave clumps of collagen when added to cold protein shakes or room temperature liquids. Not yours! Mixes so smooth.”


With the brand-new Ageless Multi-Collagen Protein, you’re getting the age-defying power of collagen in the scientifically correct form that actually works.

In fact, it can work wonders you may have thought were not possible… for your skin, hair, nails, joints, and even the health and strength of your bones, teeth, and digestive system.

That’s because Ageless Multi-Collagen Protein:

Uniquely provides you the 5 key types of collagen from 4 different sources — essential to properly increase your body’s collagen levels. This means you’re getting FIVE collagen products in ONE.

Provides you hydrolyzed collagen peptides, meaning far better and faster digestibility and mixability for maximum benefits

Is a complete protein with a naturally fermented form of tyroptophan, unlike other collagen supplements, providing you 10 grams of complete protein per serving

Is free of GMOs, fillers, and “junk.” All ingredients are lab-tested for purity and potency and come with a certificate of analysis for verification

Has no odor or taste; unlike bone broth and other collagen supplements, you can’t taste it

Mixes easily in hot or cool beverages, so it’s a breeze to enjoy
And right now, Ageless Multi-Collagen Protein is yours for up to 38% off with FREE U.S. shipping. Plus, you’ll instantly get the must-read eReport 14 Foods For Amazing Skin as a free gift. (A $20 value.)

17 Amazing Uses for Epsom Salt… Some You Won’t Believe

Epsom salt, which is not really a salt at all but a mineral compound comprised of magnesium and sulfate, gets its named from a saline spring at Epsom in Surrey, England.

Epsom salt has been used for centuries as a natural remedy for a number of ailments, and also has many beauty, gardening and household uses.

Both magnesium and sulfate are readily absorbed into the skin, which makes their health benefits readily accessible. Over 325 enzymes in the body are regulated by magnesium, which also helps reduce inflammation, alleviates hardening of the arteries and improves muscle and nerve function. Sulfates improve the rate at which nutrients are absorbed and help to flush out toxins.

Here are 17 of our favorite uses for this versatile compound – we hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

1. Soothe sore muscles

An Epsom salt bath is a great way to soothe sore muscles, cramps, bruises and joint pain. Because of this, it is a great after-workout soak. In addition, soaking in an Epsom salt bath is a wonderful way to relax and relieve stress. Add 2 cups of salts to a warm bath. Mix the salt in so it dissolves in the water. Soak for 10-15 minutes for best results.

2. Exfoliate skin

As we shed our skin naturally, the buildup of dead skin cells clogs pores and can cause blemishes. Exfoliation is necessary to keep skin healthy, glowing and vibrant. The best way to exfoliate with Epsom salts is to massage handfuls all over the body in the shower or bath. Your skin will feel soft and fresh with this homemade spa treatment.

3. Homemade hand wash

Mix ½ cup of baby oil with ½ cup of water, and add ¼ cup of Epsom salts and a few drops of your favorite essential oil. Set this homemade mixture next to your sink for a nice bathroom hand wash.

4. Treat insect bites and poison ivy

A compress made with Epsom salts is a great way to treat mosquito bites, bee stings and poison ivy. Mix 2 tablespoons of salts with 1 cup of warm water. Soak a clean cloth in the mixture and hold on affected area to remove pain, burning and itching.

5. Clean your face

Your face need to be cleaned and exfoliated just like the rest of your body. Put a teaspoon of Epsom salts in your hand and mix with a little warm water. Scrub your face with the mixture then rinse clean. This facial cleaner not only exfoliates and rejuvenates but also helps remove blackheads and prevent acne.

6. Remove splinters

Splinters can be tricky and painful to remove. Skip the needles and soak your splintered skin in an Epsom salt bath. The salts will draw the splinter out and leave the area clean.

7. Lip balm

Dry, flakey, cracking lips are not only unsightly but also painful. Heal this uncomfortable condition with a homemade Epsom salt lip balm. Mix equal parts organic coconut oil and Epsom salts. Apply to lips generously to exfoliate and moisturize.

8. Tile cleaner

Bathroom and kitchen tile grime can be difficult to clean. Powerful tile cleaners are not only expensive, but also often contain harmful chemicals. Make your own hard-working natural Epsom salt tile scrub. Mix equal parts liquid dish soap with epsom salts. Scrub onto tiles with a sponge and rinse clean with water.

9. Insect killer

Mix ¼ cup of Epsom salts with 2 cups of water and place in a spray bottle. Spray the mixture around your home and garden to safely deter insects without the use of chemical insecticides.

10. Relieve constipation

Epsom salts are a great way to relieve constipation. Mix 2 teaspoons of Epsom salts in a glass of water. Drink entire cup for best results. If the taste is not appealing to you, try mixing with fresh juice instead.

11. Fertilize your lawn and plants

Epsom salts make a wonderful fertilizer for your lawn and potted plants. For greener grass, mix 1 cup of the salts for every gallon of water and spray over lawn area. To fertilize potted plants, simply sprinkle Epsom salts around the base of the plants once every week. This method of fertilizing also works great for tomatoes and other veggies.

12. Draw out toxins and reduce swelling

An Epsom salt bath is a wonderful way to draw toxins out of your body. Soaking in a bath for 10-15 minutes is also a great way to reduce swelling. Mix 1-2 cups of Epsom salts in a warm bath and mix to dissolve in water.

13. Boost your laundry

Epsom salts combined with a little essential oil makes a perfect fabric softener for your laundry. In addition, the salts will help remove detergent buildup from your washer. Mix 4 cups epsom salts with 20 drops of your favorite essential oil. Add ¼ cup to each load of laundry.

14. Kill foot fungus and remove odor

Soaking your feet in Epsom salts not only reduces swelling and draws out toxins, but also zaps odors and foot fungus. Add ¼ cup to a large container of warm water. Soak feet for 10-15 minutes.

15. Sunburn treatment

Soaking in an Epsom salt bath is a great way to soothe skin irritated by sunburn. Mix 1 cup of salts in warm bath water. Mix to combine and soak in the bath for 10-15 minutes.

16. Hair conditioner

Epsom salts make a great deep conditioner to add volume and remove grease from your hair. Combine equal parts of organic hair conditioner and Epsom salts and apply liberally to hair. Let sit for 20 minutes, then rinse clean.

17. Soften your hands

You know that soaking your feet in epsom salts is healthy, but what about your hands? Soaking your hands is a great way to soothe rough skin, calm aching finger joints, remove nail polish and remove any dirt from under your nails. Add 1/4 cup of Epsom salts to a large bowl of warm water. Soak hands in mixture for 5-10 minutes.

For more healthy and Wellness. …
