How to make homemade incense
Bath bombs are relaxing, revitalising and nourishing for the skin.
Making them at home is easy: all you need for the base is baking soda and citric acid.
Do you have a bathtub at home that you don’t use? With bath bombs, you’ll have a reason to dust off the tub and find some time for yourself. These little spheres allow you to create a spa at home and offer a multitude of properties: they are relaxing, revitalising and offer an explosion of nutrients for the skin.
What’s more, making them yourself is easy, fun and allows you to achieve a natural result free of parabens, sulphates or artificial colourings. We assure you that from now on, they will become your favourite beauty product. Treat yourself, you deserve it!
You will need
Citric acid powder
Round mould or any other shape
Optional: food colouring, flower petals, aromatic herbs, citrus peel
Step by step
In a bowl, mix equal parts baking soda and citric acid. The amount will depend on the number of bath bombs you want to make or the size of your moulds.
Make a hole in the centre of the bowl. Add the essential oils of your choice (about 20 drops in total), another few drops of food colouring (optional) and finely chopped flower petals (optional) into the hole.
Mix immediately with your hands before it starts to bubble.
Sprinkle a small amount of water over the mixture and continue kneading.
You can also use shea butter or coconut oil to give the mixture the necessary consistency.
The result can be sprinkled directly onto the bath water or shaped into a sphere. To do this, place the mixture in the mould, press it down well and leave it to rest for a day or two in a warm, dry place.
Take the balls out of the mould and leave them to rest for another 2 or 3 hours.
You can now use your homemade bombs. Complete the bathing experience with relaxing music, candles and incense.
