Directions to make the Grinch bath bombs
Before you get started, be sure you have all your supplies gathered up in front of you. This just makes the process sooooo much easier while you make your bath bombs.
To get started making your Grinch bath bombs, grab a medium mixing bowl and add baking soda, epson salt, cornstarch, and citric acid. Whisk together to combine.
Once you’ve done that, add the coconut oil, water, marshmallow oil, and green soap colorant in a separate small bowl and stir to combine.
Next, add the oil mixture to the dry ingredients, one tablespoon at a time to keep them from starting to activate. Whisk them together for about 3 minutes, until you have reached the desired shade of green. You’ll know the mixture is ready when it clumps like dry sand when you squeeze it in your hands. If it doesn’t, add another teaspoon of water and whisk again.
Prepare the silicone mold by placing a jumbo heart sprinkle to the bottom of each mold.
Then, add the bath bomb mixture to each one on top of the jumbo sprinkles. Press firmly into each mold and allow to air dry overnight.
Carefully pop out each Grinch bath bomb from their molds and store in an airtight glass jar until you are ready to use.
When you’re ready to use your Grinch bath bombs, place them under warm running bath water. The baking soda and epson salts will relax and sooth tired muscles while the coconut oil with moisturize your skin. It is soooooo relaxing and the PERFECT addition to a bath during the Christmas season.
