So to make your own bath bombs, gather up your ingredients and bath bomb molds

Making a perfect bath bomb takes practice, please keep this in mind. You have to adjust the ingredients depending on how much moisture is in the air. Too much moisture and you will get strange little bumps on your bath bombs and not enough moisture will cause your bath bombs to be crumbly. Speaking of crumbly bath bombs, here is a helpful article how to fix crumbling bath bombs.

Here is a basic bath bomb recipe to start out with. This recipe can be doubled or tripled to make larger batches as gifts, to sell, to fill a gorgeous basket with or to have on the edge of your tub for decoration. Here we go!


1. Basic Bath Bomb Recipe

Bath Bomb Ingredients | Stage 1

1 cup baking soda

1/2 cup citric acid

1/4 cup epsom salts

1/4 cup cornstarch

Bath Bomb Ingredients | Stage 2

1 tbsp water or witch hazel (adjust the amount depending on humidity)

1 tbsp oil (coconut oil, jojoba oil, olive oil, etc)

2 tsp mica

8-12 drops essential oils 

Directions How To Make Bath Bombs

Step 1: In a large bowl combine baking soda, citric acid and epsom salts, and cornstarch together and whisk until blended.

Step 2: In another bowl combine the witch hazel, oil, mica and essential oils ingredients together in a jar and give it a shake to blend.

Step 3: Add the wet ingredients a little bit at a time to the dry ingredients so that you don't activate the bath bomb mixture. Your mixture should resemble damp sand that holds together when pressed.

Step 4: Press the mixture into the bath bomb molds and pack it in tight.

Step 5: Let the bath bombs dry in the molds.

Making bath bombs takes practice. Don't be discouraged if your bath bombs don't turn out how you planned the first time. You can always use your mixture for fizzy bath salts so don't throw anything away.

Just keep them in a cute mason jar on a shelf in your bathroom, they will be sure to be enjoyed, and chalk it up to practice!
