1. Gather your ingredients:
1 Cup Baking Soda
1 Cup Citric Acid
3 Tbls Olive Oil
1 Tbls Lavender Essential Oil
2. Combine all dry ingredients (baking soda and citric acid) in a large bowl.
3. Add olive oil and lavender essential oil to dry ingredients and mix well with a whisk.
4. Combine rose petals (if using) in a large bowl.
5. The mixture should have the consistency of damp sand. It should remain powdery but hold its form if you squeeze it. If it is not wet enough to clump in your hand, add a tiny bit (~1/2 tsp) more witch hazel. A spray bottle is helpful for this step.
6. Fill both sides of bath molds slightly over full and smush together. Leave bath bomb in the mold for several hours and then remove from mold and place on a soft towel to dry overnight or longer.
