1. Sift baking soda and citric acid into a mixing bowl and, wearing gloves, mix well.
2. In a smaller bowl, combine essential oil, food coloring and 1 teaspoon water.
3. With gloves on, mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients until texture is crumbly and can just hold its shape when squeezed with your hands. Add more

4. Tightly pack mixture into molds. Let sit overnight (do not place in direct sunlight).
5. Tap molds to release bath bombs. Wrap in tissue paper and store in an airtight container. Use the bath bombs within two weeks, as they will lose their
fizzing power if kept in storage too long.
