How To Make Homemade Holly Bath Bombs

Whisk together the baking soda, citric acid, cornstarch and epsom salts.

In a second bowl, combine the melted coconut oil, essential oil blend and alcohol together, mixing well.

Add liquid ingredients one teaspoon at a time to the dry ingredients, mixing together slowly so as not to start the fizzy reaction.

Dust the bottom of one side of one of the bath bomb molds with cornstarch. The sprinkle side tends to come out on its own, so do not bother to dust that side with cornstarch.

Place about one teaspoon of sprinkles in the non-dusted side of the bath bomb mold.

Immediately pack the bath bomb mold with the sprinkles overly full of the red mixture. You want there to be excess mixture to help bond the two sides of the mold together. Repeat with the other side of the bath bomb mold.

Press the two sides of the holly bath bomb mold together, grinding and pressing them to force the two together.
