Lavender & Clay Mondo Bath Fizzy
Recipe type: Bath Fizzy
Serves: 3 bath bombs
  • 3 cups Sodium Bicarbonate (baking soda)
  • 1.5 cups Citric Acid
  • 1 oz. Shea Butter
  • 1.5 tsp. Purple Brazilian Clay
  • 1.5 tsp. Pink Brazilian Clay
  • 6 mL Lavender 40/42 Essential Oil
  • Lavender Buds, Grade 1
  • Witch Hazel (optional)
  • Stainless Steel Bath Bomb Mold
  1. In a large bowl, combine sodium bicarbonate and citric acid. Use your hands or a mesh strainer to remove any clumps.
  2. Once the mixture is smooth, place the shea butter into a heat safe container and melt in the microwave using 30 second bursts. Once completely melted, add to the citric acid and baking soda mixture. Use your hands to fully incorporate the oils into the dry ingredients.
  3. Add the lavender 40/42 essential oil, and use your hands or a spatula to fully in the essential oil.
  4. Split the mixture evenly into three containers, it’s okay to eyeball it. To one container, add the pink Brazilian clay and use your hands or spatula to fully incorporate. To another container, add the purple Brazilian Clay and use your hands or spatula to fully mix in.
  5. Depending on the moisture level of the current mixture, spritz the bath bombs with witch hazel. It usually takes between 7-10 spritzes, and the mixture should be wet enough so when you squeeze the powder in your palm, it will stick together. If you don’t have witch hazel, adding extra shea butter will help the dry ingredients stick.
  6. Once all the colors have reached a mold-able consistency, place a small amount of lavender buds into a half of the bath bomb mold. Just a pinch does the trick! Then place some white bath bomb mixture into the mold, covering the lavender buds. Fill the bath bomb mold about half way full with the white mixture.
  7. Cover the white layer with the pink bath bomb mixture. Once full, set aside that half of the bath bomb mold.
  8. Fill the other half of the mold half way with purple bath bomb mixture and pack down. Fill the remainder of the mold with pink bath bomb mixture. Slightly overfill this half with the pink mixture, and squeeze the two halves of the mold together firmly.
  9. Very gently, pull one half of the mold away. Slightly twisting while pulling away can make this process smoother.
  10. Allow to harden for at least 24 hours. Then package in in cellophane or plastic wrap to protect them against excess moisture and enjoy!
