Instructions:

In a large mixing bowl, add the baking soda, buttermilk, arrowroot powder (this is an organic and eco-friendly starch), kaolin clay and dead sea salts. Whisk dry ingredients together.

Add the coconut oil. This binds all the ingredients together, so you don’t have bath bombs that crumble. You can also use 90% isopropyl alcohol, but I feel the coconut oil holds the mixture together more effectively.

Add the cupuacu butter. This gives your bath bombs more stability and hardens them, so your bath bombs don’t crumble when you touch them. It also is excellent for moisturizing your skin.

Add the clary sage essential oil. Mix ingredients thoroughly. You may need to use your hands to break down any lumps and make sure everything is mixed in. The mixture is perfect when it holds together when you press it into your hands and feels like wet sand. Separate mixture into two smaller bowls.

Mix in the spirulina powder in one bowl and the green tea Matcha powder in the other until completely incorporated into the mixture.

ingredients in the molds
Fill one side of the mold with the spirulina mixture and the other side with the green tea matcha. You can also layer them on each side. Press molds together and grind to remove the excess mixture. Gently tap each side of the mold to release the bombs.

Allow to dry a minimum of 24 hours. If your climate is wet or cold, allow an additional 24 hours. My rule of thumb is that when it is hard to the touch, they are ready for the tub! Store in an airtight container until ready for use.
