Citric acid (anhydrous) is a natural occurring fruit acid that can be used in DIY cosmetics and personal care products to delay discolouration and to retain vitamin content. Citric acid anhydrous is in powder form which makes bath bombs and fizz balls easier to create than using the monohydrate.

Beautifying Rose Milk Bath Bombs

1 c baking soda

½ c citric acid

½ c cornstarch or arrowroot powder

¼ c powdered milk

3 T Epsom salt

dried rose petals

1 tsp water or rose floral water

3 -4 tsp almond oil

15 - 20 drops rose oil

Whisk the dry ingredients and the rose petals together in a bowl. In a separate bowl mix the wet ingredients together, then slowly add the liquid to the dry ingredients, whisking as you go. If the mixture holds its shape when squeezed together it is ready, otherwise if not, use a spray bottle of water to spray once or twice to moisten the mixture. Don't spray too much or it will fizz. Press the mixture into molds and leave to dry overnight. View more of our bath bomb recipes on our blog.
