DIY Bath Bombs

Bath Bomb
Hey All!
Have you ever wanted to learn how to make your own bath bombs? If no, then that’s okay, we will share anyways! But if yes, then you’re in luck! These fun DIY Bath Bombs are SO EASY, SO QUICK, and SO FUN! Oh and did we mention…your kids will LOVE bath time!? Hope you enjoy!

-I bought my Bath Bomb molds on Amazon. Link HERE! (I liked these ones because it came with different sized molds to use.)
**If you don’t want to buy molds, NO PROBLEM! Just use an ice cube tray! They work just as well!**

Ingredients Needed:

  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup citric acid
  • 1/2 cup Epsom salts
  • 1 tsp. water
  • 2 tsp. essential oil (You can pick ANY kind of smell(s)! Up to you! (We were feeling festive and wanted to go patriotic for July!)
  • 3 tsp. oil (olive oil works best)
  • food coloring (Again, any color you want!)

In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients. Whisk together until evenly blended.
*If you are planning to do different layers and different colors, you will want multiple bowls to place your bath bomb substance in once your dry ingredients are all mixed.*

In a SEPARATE bowl, combine water, oil, and essential oil. (If you are planning to use multiple scents that don’t mix too well, feel free to use different bowls for each scent. This helps with the layering process as well once food coloring is involved.)

NOW we get to the fun! But we have to be QUICK.

Prepare your molds by having them ready to go.
Plan out what colors you are wanting to use and have a separate bowl for each color.

Place some of your powdery Bath Bomb substance into a bowl, add a few drops of food coloring, add some of your liquids to each bowl of dry ingredients and WHISK!

If the mix isn’t becoming like moldable sand, then you can add a little more water. You don’t want it runny or else it won’t work.
(KEY! If you use a spray bottle to add water, it helps a ton! This avoids getting it too wet.)

Place your Bath Bomb mixture into your molds, pack each layer firmly, and place in the fridge.
(This helps them to quickly set.)

Wait a few hours, and CAREFULLY remove your Bath Bombs from the molds. (Lyndsie’s tipped in the fridge…and now her fridge smells like a spa.. haha! BUT on a funny note, when she found her shattered bath bombs and almost cried, her hilarious husband reminded her that Thomas Edison failed 1000 times before creating the light bulb.. so she still has 999 more attempts to make the perfect bath bomb.. lol. ANYWAYS!

You’re almost ready to take a bath! Just be sure to send us a picture of what your amazing Bath Bombs look like before doing so!

I hope you enjoy this as much as we did! If you have ANY questions, please message us! Sometimes it’s hard to explain certain steps, so if you need help, just holler!

ENJOY! The Epsom Salt with the Essential Oils make your skin so soft!

With LOVE,

Alanna, Natalie, & Lyndsie
