  • In a large bowl, add baking soda, epsom salt and citric acid. Mix well
  • Add water, almond oil and essential oils in a small bowl. Mix well.
  • Very slowly add wet mixture to dry ingredients, and mix well. You may notice some fizzing - just keep stirring. (Note: Don't dump the entire wet mixture at once as it will activate the baking soda and citric acid. It's important to stir it in very slowly.)
  • Test mixture. You should be able to clump it together to mold. It shouldn't be too wet or too dry. If it's too dry, add 1 tsp of almond oil as needed.
  • Optional: Add dried lavender flowers to bottom of molds.
  • Scoop mixture with both ends to form a ball with clear holiday ornaments or silicone mold.
  • Place mold in a muffin tin and allow to dry overnight (at least 8 hours) at room temperature.
  • Remove mold and test to make sure mold has set. You can let it air dry more to keep it's shape.
