Most bathbombs are made with a key ingredient that creates the fizzzzz; that ingredient is citric acid. Citric acid is a natural compound and, whilst sounding a little scary, it's found in many food items, including citrus fruits such as lemons, limes.. etc.

Citric acid can often be expensive to buy, so here's a recipe that relies on the naturally occuring citric acid in lemons. Whilst it is a relatively small amount found therein,, it is sufficient for making our bathbombs.

The lemon juice will possibly taint the bathbomb a pale yellow, quite nice really, but you can add a couple of drops of food colourant should you wish.

What you'll need

Juice of 1/2 a lemon or lime

Small pump spritzer bottle

64g Bicarbonate of Soda

1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil - you could use olive oil

Mixing bowl

Food colourant (optional)

9 drops essential oil(s) of your choice

Several silicone cupcake moulds or cupcake papers

12 hole muffin tin or similar

What to do

1. Place the silicone cupcake moulds or cupcake papers into the muffin tin. The tin helps to support the mould and retain the shape.

2. Squeeze the juice of 1/2 a lemon into the spritzer bottle

3. Roughly weight out the Bicarbonate of Soda and place into the mixing bowl

4. Add the oil of your choice to the bowl - if using coconut oil, there's no need to melt it before adding in; Simply mash it in and let the heat of the friction do the melting.

5. Add maximum of 9 drops of essential oil and combine all ingredients well. If using food colourant, add 1 - 2 drops. now

6. Whilst mixing, spritz the mixture with the lemon juice, continue mixing and re-sprtiz. Keep spritzing until the mixture resembles wet sand.

7. Do the clump test : Take a handful of the mixture and squeeze it together in you hand. Drop it back into the bowl. The clump should not break. If it does, add more lemon juice and try the clump test again.

8. Pack the silicone mould(s) or cupcake paper(s) to half way, pressing the mixture down as firmly as you can.

9. Leave to dry on the mould away from humidity, for 1 to 2 days. Tip: Place these in an cold oven or cool box firmly sealed to prevent moisture getting into the bath bomb during the drying period.

10. Gently de-mould and store in an air-tight contain until ready to enjoy

11. To use, simply drop the bath bomb into the bath whilst running the water and wath the fizz !


1. Sweet Lavender : Place a few lavender buds into the bottom of the mould . Use 9 drops of lavender essential oil with a drop or two of blue food colouring in the mixture

2. Rosy Pink: A a few rose petals into the bottom of the mould. Use 9 drops of rose essentail oi and add a drop or two of red food colouring. Since rose oil is one of the most expensive essential oils on the market, you can substitute the rose oil with either Ho Wood or Rosewood essential oil as each of these oils have a "rose" aroma.

3. Orange Cream: Add 1-2 teaspoons of orange zest into the mixture. Use 9 drops of Orange or Neroli essential oils and add a drop or two of orange food colouring.

Of course, the variants are as limited as your imagination, so unleash your creativity and personalise your bathtime experience in a simple and natural way.
