These ginger grapefruit detox bath bombs are the perfect way to relax and invigorate your body after a long week. The ginger helps relieve sore muscles and grapefruit oil helps keep your body free of toxins and keeps your skin clean. This combination of scents is so dreamy, too! It is perfection!
If you haven’t ever made bath bombs, now is the time to start! Not only is it a lot less expensive, but it is so fun! To make this ginger grapefruit bath bomb recipe you need…
Bath Bomb Ingredients
1 tsp ground ginger
10-15 drops grapefruit essential oil
red and yellow food coloring (optional)
How to make bath bombs
Start by mixing together the baking soda, citric acid, corn starch, epsom salt, and coconut oil. Make sure that the coconut oil gets mixed in really well.
Now spray witch hazel into your mixture. Only spray 5 sprays at a time and mix well, so the mixture doesn’t start to react with the witch hazel. Spray 5 sprays at a time and continue to mix together until the mixture is wet enough to stick together. You don’t want it to be too wet, or else it will continue to react and it won’t stay together.
Next, it is time to add the ingredients that make this bath bomb special! Add 1 tsp of ground ginger and 10-15 drops of grapefruit essential oil.
This next step is totally optional, but adding food coloring makes baths even more fun. For this ginger grapefruit bath bomb, I added red and yellow food coloring to make a nice light, burnt orange color.
Put your mixture into your bath bomb molds. You want to over fill them slightly so that the two sides will really stick together. Once they are in the bath bomb molds, put a rubber band around the sphere to hold both sides together. Either let the bath bomb dry overnight, or put them in the freezer for about 30 minutes.
Carefully take the bath bomb out of the mold and enjoy! These bath bombs are perfect for gifts, too. The ginger and grapefruit are scents that pretty much everyone enjoys.

I’m going to make these! Thanks for sharing your recipe! One question, though - why use ground ginger instead of ginger oil? Is there a difference?

I chose ground ginger instead because oils can be pretty intense and I didn't want to risk it burning the skin.
