Baking Soda in Bath Bombs – ⚪️
 When coming in touch with water, the baking soda creates carbon dioxide, that reacts to the citric acid that is also added to this recipe. So get ready for some bubbles!

Grapeseed Oil in Bath Bombs – 🌱
 This amazing essential oil is the perfect one to use as the base oil of this recipe. Because of its oily texture, the grapeseed oil will function as a great moisturizing element in your bath bombs. The grapeseed oil will help the bath bombs melt into our bath.

Citric Acid in Bath Bombs – 🍊
Like we said about the Baking Soda, the combination with the citric acid creates a chemical reaction that creates carbon dioxide. Our bath should be fizzing by now!

Corn Starch in Bath Bombs – 🌽
The cornstarch is here with us, because of its ability to slow things down. It slows down the reaction of the baking soda and the citric acid and keeps them from dissolving to fast.

Rose Essential Oil – 🌹
Who doesn’t like the smell of roses? With the wine aroma & color, there is no other scent that fits that amazing DIY bath bombs recipe.

Polysorbate 80 in Bath Bombs – 8️⃣0️⃣
Polysorbate 80 is an emulsifier that helps the shea butter disperse more evenly in the bathwater rather than pooling on top. It also prevents the mica from clinging to the side of the tub.

Kaolin Clay in Bath Bombs – 🔘
The kaolin clay is used to add structure to our DIY bath bombs recipe. Will make the bath bombs hold up to their shape when unmolded. The kaolin clay absorbs, so be careful not to use too much.

Shea Butter in Bath Bombs – 🥃
Well, the shea butter is the base of our DIY bath bombs recipe. It contains a high amount of fatty acids that could clean up your pores, to let your skin fully exfoliate. Shea butter helps with hydrating the skin and feeding it with minerals.

Star Anise in Bath Bombs – ⭐️
It contains anethole which is amazingly effective in detoxifying the skin. It possesses tannins which set the skin’s tone by strengthening the muscles’ firmness, preventing sagging. 

Witch Hazel in Bath Bombs – 👻
