Steps 1-5: In a large mixing bowl, add the baking soda, citric acid, Epsom salts, and white kaolin clay. Whisk dry ingredients together.
Step 6: Add the strawberry scented oil to the coconut oil
Step 7: Add the coconut oil mixture to the dry ingredients. This binds all the ingredients together, so you bath bombs don’t crumble when you touch them!
Steps 8-9: 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. Add scented oil.
Steps 9-10: Mix the ingredients together. The mixture is perfect when it holds together when you press it into your hands and feels like wet sand. Separate the mixture into 2 bowls.
Steps 11-14: Add colorant to one of the bowls. I added 2-3 drops of pink and 1 drop of red to get the strawberry color I wanted.
Mix into bath bomb mixture until desired color is achieved. Add the pink cosmetic glitter and mix well. Add the white mica powder and white cosmetic glitter to the other bowl and mix well.
Step 15: Add about 1 tablespoon of one of the colors to the large bath bomb mold. Do the same with the next color and continue to layer the colors into each side of the bath bomb mold until full.
Steps 16-19: Press both sides of the mold together firmly, grinding together to get rid of the excess mixture. Tap both sides of the mold and gently release the bomb. Allow to dry a minimum of 24 hours.
