Fragrance Bombs are an easy way to add a delightful scent to any room in your home. They are made using a combination of baking soda, citric acid, and essential oils. Here's how to make them:
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1/2 cup citric acid
- 10 - 15 drops of essential oil of your choice
Ice cube tray
Roughly 12-18 depending on size of ice cube tray or mould used.
- In a bowl, mix the baking soda and citric acid.
- Add the essential oil to the mixture and stir well. You can use any essential oil that you like, but some good options are lavender, peppermint, eucalyptus, and citrus.
- Add a little bit of water into the mixture at a time, stirring constantly, until the mixture starts to stick together. You want the mixture to be slightly damp, but not too wet.
- Scoop the mixture into a silicone mould or ice cube tray, packing it in tightly. Let the mixture sit in the mould for several hours or overnight to dry and harden.
- Once the fragrance bombs have hardened, pop them out of the mould and store them in a jar or container until you're ready to use them.
