DIY Lush Bathbombs

1 cup baking soda
3/4 cup cornstarch 
1/4 cup Epsom salt
1/2 cup lemon salt or citric acid
10 drops food coloring 
Essential oil of your choice
3 tblsp of melted coconut oil 
Molds *chocolate molds work best or these

( I added just a little lemon extract for the extra lemon scent)

Mix all the dry ingredients in one bowl and wet in another.

Mix wet into dry slowly. Add more coconut oil as needed. The consistency should be moist but still crumbly. 

Pack tightly into a mild of your choice I used a muffin tin. Let sit for two days. 

To get them out I flipped the tin over on wax paper and tapped the bottom with a knife and they popped out.

I know there are some popular bath bombs from lush so here is what I found to be pretty close to creating almost the same thing.

LUSH Copycat

Sexbomb- use jasmine and ylang ylang and sage oils. 5 drops of each
Except sage use only 2. And use pink and purple food coloring. And for the mold use these

Butterball- use cocoa butter *melted* instead of coconut oil,  4 drops ylang ylang oil and 5 drops vanilla oil. And since its white no food coloring is needed.

Pink bath bomb- 5 drops lavender oil, 4 drops vanilla oil, 3 drops neroli oil and 2 drops lemon.  Pink food coloring.

Deep blue sea-  2 tblsp ground arame seaweed, sea salt instead of Epsom, 3 drops lemon oil, 3 drops lavender, 2 drops deep blue. Blue food coloring.
* deep blue makes even a hot bath feel coolest so use as little as possible*

Those were the ones I've tested and in my opinion seem close to the originals. Of course it's my opinion so if it doesn't work for you, you can always adjust the oils to your liking.
