In a separate small mixing bowl, add the water, coconut oil, essential oil, and soap colourant. Stir to combine.

Then, slowly add 1 tablespoon (at a time) of the liquid mixture to the dry ingredients and whisk each time in order to avoid to much bubbling and becoming activated. You want it to resemble damp sand and hold together when you clump it in your hands.

STEP 4: Fill the molds

Once you have the mixture ready, transfer it to each tree mold - only filling about 3/4 full so there is room for expansion. Press firmly into each one and allow it to dry overnight.

STEP 5: Finish up and gift your bath bombs

Now it's time to prepare these Christmas bath bombs for gifting! Pop them out of the mold and wrap them in cellophane and finish off with a cute Christmas ribbon. Store them in an airtight container until you are ready to gift them to your friends and family.

To use: fill your bathtub with warm or hot water and drop the Christmas bath bombs into the water and watch them dissolve! Enjoy a relaxing bath as wintergreen fills the air. The coconut oil will moisturize your skin while the epson salt and baking soda soothes tired muscles.
