4 tablespoons water

80-100 drops Eucalyptus essential oil 

2 tablespoons dried eucalyptus leaves 

Bath bomb molds (2.2 inch)

Combine the baking soda and epsom salts. Stir very well, making sure to get rid of any lumps that may have formed in the baking soda.

 

Add the eucalyptus leaves and stir into baking soda/epsom salts mixture.

Add essential oils,

  

then add water and stir well. You should have a somewhat pasty mixture that will form into a ball or shape well.

Spoon mixture into one half of a bath bomb mold, pressing firmly to fill the entire mold.
