Gather Supplies: epsom salt, baking soda, food coloring, coconut oil, essential oil, and citric acid. Also make sure you have a whisk, large bowl, small bowl, a mold and a spoon.
Combine the Dry Ingredients: this is your baking soda, epsom salt, and citric acid. Combine these in a large bowl and whisk.
Combine the Wet Ingredients: this is the water, essential oil, coconut oil and food coloring. Combine these in a small bowl and stir with a spoon. You may need to melt the coconut oil if it is solid.
Combine the Mixtures: slowly pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture little by little, whisking as you go. The end result should resemble the look and texture of sand.
Mold: spoon the mixture into your mold and press to pack it tight. Now all you need to do is wait for the mix to dry. I would let them dry overnight.
Pop them Out: gently pry them out of the mold and you are finished!
