  • Muffin tin
  • Muffin tin liners
  • Large mixing bowl



  • In a large mixing bowl, combine your baking soda, corn starch, Epsom salt and dry colorant. Whisk to combine.
  • Pour coconut oil, bubble bath and essential oils into dry ingredients. Mix with a whisk (or your hands) until a dough starts to form. If it’s still too wet, add baking soda 1/4 cup at a time until it starts to come together.
  • Once you have a good dough (it should feel like wet sand), press small spoonfuls into your muffin tin liners. I filled mine about 2/3 full.
  • Let dry overnight or until they’re solid and can be removed from the liners without crumbling.


Feel free to leave out the dry colorant, if you prefer.
I love to package several together with a bit of twine and give as gifts. Use within 2-3 months.
To use, simply crumble one or two bars under running water.
