Citric acid is the secret ingredient that will make your bath bombs fizz. I bought it from Amazon in bulk and was surprised by how many ways it can be used. You can add citric acid to meat, candy, soft drinks or ice cream for a sour taste. It is also used for preserving foods and in cleaning products.

While you’re there, the bath bomb molds can be purchased on Amazon too. I like this set that comes in three sizes because sometimes I have more time to relax in a bath than others. It is also nice to have size options if you are making the fresh avocado bath bombs for gifts. The smaller molds make bombs that fit nicely in a mason jar for quick and easy packaging.In order to make your fresh avocado bath bombs smell heavenly, like the Avobath bombs from Lush, you will need this fragrance oil from Aztec Candle and Soap Supplies. That’s not an affiliate link. I just LOVE how it smells and know you will too!
