I want to make some bath bombs, but I'm wondering where you get citric acid. Is this something that is at the grocery store, but I've just never noticed before? Also what does it look like?

You can buy it beer/wine making supply stores. Also there is a kind used for canning or something I dont remember exactly I think it is called "fruit Fresh" but I would check the label..I am not 100% certain.

I bought my jar at DH's favorite homebrewing supply shop. You could also just grind up a vitamin C tablet, if you can't find pure citric acid.

I saw some at the drug store next to the epsom salts. It was a little pricey, so I haven't bought any yet, but I'm planning to get some so I can make bath bombs as well.

I found some online but there were two choices. Powdered and granulated. Which one would you use for bath bombs?

Or you can powder your own in your blender or food processor!

I'm stocking up on M&P soap & bath salt/bomb making stuff. Getting wild this year with herbs and additives like coffee and oatmeal! FUN!

wholesalesuppliesplus.com is great for soaps, citric acid, salts
wildroots.com is great for herbs

I am not sure I know the difference. The only citric acid I have seen has been pretty fine so I dont know how big the granuels are on the granulated.
