Vegan Friendly Orange Peel Bath Bombs Recipe
Vegan Beauty Products
Both my daughters have super sensitive skin. They also have struggled with their “eczema face”, looking for an eczema treatment for years with very little success. What they discovered was when they used plant-based cleansing and beauty products, they saw fewer breakouts on their skin.
Botanical Bath Bombs
Speaking of skin…As I have gotten older, I have begun to appreciate my skin so much more. I have seen the changes it is going through and realized I need to take better care of it.
As my girls began to delve into the vegan skincare world, I did as well. I got very interested in natural botanical skincare. That is where I developed this Vegan Friendly Orange Peel Bath Bombs Recipe.
DIY Beauty At Home
We have enjoyed learning about making our own DIY beauty products at home this past year! Because vegan, plant-based, and organic skincare brand products can be expensive, making them at home can be a smart choice!
We have made homemade organic vegan skincare beauty products for friends and family for Christmas and they were a big hit! Take a look at this video to see how easy this Vegan Bath Bombs Recipe is to make:
Orange Essential Oils
We have been using essential oils for several years. I wanted to use the dried orange peels in these homemade bath bombs for the exfoliating properties.
In my humble *opinion, orange essential oils are great for lifting my mood, fighting off free radicals, making this aging look not so old, collagen and cell growth and shrinking pores and so much more.
Vegan Bath Bombs Supplies:
• 2 cups baking soda
• 1 cup powdered coconut milk
• 1/4 cup cornstarch
• 1/3 cup coconut oil
• 10-20 drops orange essential oil
• 2 tablespoons granulated orange peel
• 1-2 drops vegan soap colorant
• Stainless steel bath bomb molds
• Spray bottle filled with rubbing alcohol
• 1 large mixing bowl
How To Make Vegan Bath Bombs:
Step 1: In a large mixing bowl, add the baking soda, dried coconut milk, and cornstarch.
Step 2: Whisk dry ingredients together.
Step 3: Add the coconut oil, orange essential oil, and orange color. Start with 1-2 drops of color and mix it in. If you want a darker color, add 1-2 more drops and repeat until you get the color you want.
Mix ingredients thoroughly. 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.
Step 4: Mix in the dried orange peel.
Step 5: Fill both sides of the mold with the mixture, press molds together, and grind to remove the excess mixture. Gently tap each side of the mold to release the bombs. To avoid the bombs breaking during the drying phase, I put them in a mini muffin tin. They fit perfectly!
Allow drying a minimum of 12 hours. If your climate is wet or cold, allow an additional 12 hours. My rule of thumb is that when it is hard to touch, they are ready for the tub! Store in an airtight container until ready for use.
