Peppermint Eucalyptus Bath Bombs

Candy canes may be great for stuffing stockings, adorning trees, or a sweet snack, but the minty holiday staple can also be incorporated into your beauty routine. Peppermint oil contains minerals and nutrients including iron, calcium, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins A and C, and is soothing to the skin.

Indie Lee has created a holiday-themed bath bomb recipe, which makes for a great hostess gift or stocking stuffer. The secret ingredients to the all-natural recipe are baking soda and citric acid, which will make the bombs fizz up like a glass of champagne once you drop them in the bathtub, however if you don’t want the hassle of making your own you can buy some amazing bath bombs from

DIY Peppermint Eucalyptus Bath Bombs


  • 1 c. baking soda

  • 1 tbsp. witch hazel

DIY Peppermint Eucalyptus Bath Bombs


Before you start the DIY, make sure you have a fun holiday mold or tin to shape your bombs in. You could also use cookie cutters and parchment paper.

Combine baking soda and citric acid in a large mixing bowl.

Drizzle in jojoba oil, followed by essential oils. Mix well until you have a smooth mixture.

Slowly drizzle witch hazel into the mixture, constantly stirring to stop the ingredients from fizzing.

Once all of the ingredients are moist enough to clump together, firmly press the mixture into your molds.

Allow the bombs to dry for 3-4 hours before removing them from the molds.

Recipe will make 6-10 bath bombs, depending on size of mold.

Add 1-2 bath bombs to a warm bath and enjoy.

Use within three months. Store in an airtight container.

    I made these exactly according to instructions. It was impossible to mold them because after I packed the mixture into my molds, it kept expanding and overflowing them. I kept trimming it away and packing it down, but it continued to puff up and over and flow out. It would not hold its shape if removed from mold. I finally walked away and came back in the morning. They were so full of holes and brittle that most of them broke trying to remove from muffin tins and cookie cutters. I ended up with some usable bombs, plus a whole lot of crumbles that I dumped in to a ziploc. What did I do wrong?
