The benefits of sweet herbal oils

The four herbs I chose for this recipe have benefits for both the mind and your skin. Lavender essential oil is soothing and gentle and smells intensely floral. Peppermint has that natural zingy menthol that will make your skin tingle pleasantly. Marjoram is a sweet herb related to oregano and its oil is calming and sweetly herbal. Finally, calendula is a gentle skin herb and the teaspoon of oil in this recipe will moisturise, nourish, and heal.

When you make these fizzies, the herbal oils are blended into a base that fizzes on contact with water. That base also has epsom salts that nourish you from the outside in with its magnesium content. All in all, these are wonderfully indulgent yet therapeutic natural bath bombs that the whole family will love.

Why the silicone tray?

I’ve created this recipe to be both natural and very easy to make. The trouble with making bath bombs is getting them the right consistency — too dry and they won’t hold form and too wet and they get stuck in the mould.

That’s why you’ll be using a silicone mini muffin tray to make these fizzies. They’ll pop out easily and make creating bath bombs stress-free. You can use two-piece bath bomb moulds for this recipe too but they’re a lot more tricky to master.

Calendula Infused Oil

You can purchase your calendula infused oil ready made or you can make it yourself. It’s simply dried calendula flower petals that have been left to seep in a light oil such as almond, sunflower, or olive oil. For more information on making it, head over here for the recipe and instructions.

Making your Natural Bath Bombs

  • In preparation, decorate the bottoms of each cavity of the mould with a scattering of dried herbs and flowers. These will be visible on the tops of your fizzies.
  • Place the baking soda, citric acid, and epsom salts in a bowl and whisk together.
  • Pour in the calendula infused oil and essential oils and blend together with a whisk or your hand
  • Spray the mixture with a couple pumps of witch hazel and stir. Continue spraying and stirring until the mixture is the right consistency.
  • The consistency should be like lightly damp sand. Not too wet but just enough to hold form when you squeeze it together in your hand.

Decorating your Herbal Flower Fizzies

The next part is all about artistry and you can customise it to however you’d like. The first bits of dried herbs and flowers should already be in the mould cavities — less is more when decorating the tops.

  • Spoon about a Tablespoon of your bath bomb mixture into each cavity. Press down slightly.
  • With your fingers, scatter a layer of dried peppermint on top, especially around the edges. This will create the line along the sides of the fizzies.
  • Spoon another Tablespoon of the fizzy mixture on top and then press the whole thing down with your fingers. Press as hard as you’d like without leaving finger indents.
  • If the mixture starts fizzing up at all that means it’s a little too wet. You can press it down with the back of a spoon but it may need this doing several times before it sticks.
  • Decorate the bottoms with more peppermint leaves if you’d like
  • Now leave to harden for 24 hours.

Your Natural Bath Bombs are ready to use

After you’ve waited that day, you can safely pop the fizzies out of the mould. Store them in a water-tight container or use them right away — it’s up to you. These natural bath bombs have a shelf-life of about one year or the closest best by date that you can find on the individual ingredients you used.

  1. I just found you and your web-site. I LOVE! everything you are doing as it is all organic, and free of synthetics. I have ordered everything to get started on making my first tray of the lavender, peppermint and calendula soap. My question: can I infuse natural incense cones (I have jasmine, rose, orchid and lavender) to achieve a color for soap or bombs? Are they safe to use in soaps or bombs?
    thank you,
    Shirley

    1. Hi Shirley and lovely to hear from you :) I wouldn’t advise using incense cones for anything than what they’re intended for. Even if they are made with essential oils, you don’t know what else is in the cones or if the essential oil used is suitable for skin. Not all essential oils are the same! Stick with using pure essential oils from trusted suppliers. Each oil should have an IFRA document listing whether it’s suitable for use in various types of skincare and products. Good luck and have fun!

  2. Hello. Do you happen to sell the ingredients needed to make the bath bombs? I would love to make that purchase. If not, where did you get your ingredients from?
