What makes bath bombs fizzy

Bath bombs contain a mixture of baking soda and citric acid as their main ingredients, along with other ingredients such as essential oils. When the bath bomb comes in contact with water, the baking soda and citric acid react with each other and produce carbon dioxide gas, which creates those fizzing bubbles you see in the water.

The fizzing effect not only creates a fun and relaxing bath experience, but it can also help to release any tension or stress you might be feeling. Additionally, the other ingredients in bath bombs, such as essential oils, can also provide additional benefits to the skin and help to soothe and nourish it.

  • ½ cup baking soda
  • ¼ cup citric acid
  • ¼ cup shea butter, almond oil, and epsom salts mixture (see link)
  • ¼ cup corn starch
  • ¼ cup dried calendula petals
  • 1 tbsp sweet almond oil
  • 1 tsp water
  • 14 drops calendula essential oil
  • 10 drops chamomile essential oil


  • Add the baking soda, citric acid, epsom salts, and cornstarch to a medium bowl, and stir with the whisk for 2-3 minutes until the dry ingredients are completely combined.
  • Add the calendula petals and stir in.
  • Pour the sweet almond oil, water, and essential oils into a small jar, and secure the lid. Shake the jar vigorously to combine the liquid ingredients.
  • Very slowly, whisk the liquid into the dry mixture, whisking the entire time, so as not to activate the fizzing properties in the bath bombs.
  • Scoop the mixture into each half of the bath bomb mold, then press together, and give a quick twist.
  • Allow the bath bombs to set for 6-8 hours. Remove from the molds, and store in an airtight container.
