Earl Grey Tea And Lavender Bath Bombs are perfect for a soak in a warm tub in the cooler fall and winter months. They are a great part of your self-care routine to let the stress of the day melt away.
I have had a serious love affair with bath bombs since the first time I was gifted one. I quickly realized that my need for bath bombs could bankrupt me if I allowed myself to soak as much as I would have liked. Instead, I learned how to make my own and have been whipping them up regularly ever since, in the name of self-care.
These Earl Grey Tea And Lavender Bath Bombs are perfect for the cooler fall and winter months. There is nothing like a nice warm bath on a cold day. Pair your warm bath with a steamy mug of tea and take a break.
Relax, soak your stresses away while enjoying the benefits of dead sea salts and coconut oil. This bath bomb is also made with kaolin clay. This is wonderful for detoxifying, stimulating and cleaning the skin.
• 2 cups baking soda
• 1 cup citric acid (It’s better to buy in bulk on Amazon)
• 1/4 cup cornstarch
• 1/4 cup dead sea salts (I get mine on Amazon)
• 1/4 cup kaolin clay (I get mine on Amazon)
• 1/3 cup coconut oil (I get mine on Amazon)
• 1 teaspoon polysorbate 80 (I get mine on Amazon)
• Lavender soap colorant (I get mine from this set on Amazon)
• 4 tea bags or 4 tablespoons of Earl Grey Tea (I get mine on Amazon)
• 1 tablespoon dried lavender (I get mine on Amazon)
• Stainless steel bath bomb molds (I get mine on Amazon)
• Spray bottle filled with rubbing alcohol
• 1 large mixing bowl
Step 1: In a large mixing bowl, add the baking soda, citric acid, dead sea salts, and cornstarch.
Step 2: Whisk dry ingredients together.
Step 3: Add the coconut oil. This binds all the ingredients together, so your bath bombs don’t crumble when you touch them! Next, add the polysorbate 80. This helps the coconut oil disperse more evenly in your bath water, and prevents the mica from sticking to the side of the tub.
Mix wet ingredients in well. You may need to use your hands to break down any lumps and make sure everything is mixed in. The mixture is perfect when it holds together when you press it into your hands and feels like wet sand. If mixture gets dry, spritz with rubbing alcohol
Step 4: Add 3 tablespoons of the Earl Grey tea and 1 tablespoon of the dried lavender. Mix well.
Step 5: Add 1-2 drops of the lavender colorant. Mix well. Continue to add 1 drop of color until you achieve the color you desire.
Step 6: 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 the excess mixture.
Step 6: 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.
