"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Devon Monroe-McClintic


1 cup baking soda
½ cup Citric Acid
½ cup cornstarch
3 tablespoons Epson salt
2 teaspoons Sweet Almond Oil
¾ teaspoon water
15 drops Lavender Oil
a few tablespoons of dried Organic Lavender Flowers

plastic ornament or silicone mold


In a large bowl combine baking soda, citric acid, cornstarch, epson salt, and dried lavender.

In a small bowl combine the almond oil, water, and essential oil.

Pour wet mixture into dry mixture. Mix with a whisk until fully combined. Test mixture by pressing a handful together. If the mixture doesn’t hold, with a spray bottle containing water, spray once or twice. Avoid adding too much water or the mixture will fizz and not form in the mold correctly. Once it’s the right consistency press mixture into mold and allow to dry at least two hours before removing. Set bath bombs on a soft towel and let dry overnight.

This recipe will make three bath bombs. They are about the same size as the lush bath bomb so they’re pretty big. Dry time and quanity will depend on the size of your mold.
