Mix citric acid, Epsom salt, cornstarch and baking soda.

In another bowl mix almond oil, lavender essential oil, and water. Stir, add a pinch of colorant and stir again.

Pour the oil solution into the salt, soda, and citric acid mixture. Do it bit by bit and stir. You have to add the oil mixture slowly as you don’t want to activate the ingredients yet.

Now stir the mixture to attain a texture similar to wet sand.

Add a bit of dried lavender to the bottom of one mold.

Fill both halves with the mixture.

Press them together.

Remove the bath bombs from the molds and allow them to dry.
