Raise your hand if shelling out bucks on store-bought bath bombs has your wallet waving a white flag. Making these sudsy spheres at home is easier and more affordable than you’d guess! Follow this foolproof guide to get crafty with customized creations adding fizz and luxury to your soak time routine.

Choosing the Right Ingredients for Your Bath Bombs

It all starts with gathering the right ingredients for your signature blend. Baking soda and citric acid provide the quintessential fizz, while Epsom salts relax muscles and silken skin simultaneously. Toss in soothing cornstarch for an ultra-smooth sensation that’s gentle even on sensitive skin.

Then make it your own with personalized color and fragrance! A few drops of food coloring swirls hypnotic hues, but go slowly to avoid dye disasters. Balance therapeutic essential oils like calming chamomile or refreshing eucalyptus for a custom aromatherapy experience. Too much overwhelming aroma isn’t relaxing, so start subtle – less is more to find that sweet scent spot.

Bath bomb recipe

Makes 4 half-balls
Prep 30 mins, plus 2-4 hrs setting

  • 100g bicarbonate of soda
  • 50g citric acid
  • 25g cornflour
  • 25g Epsom salt (optional)
  • 2 tbsp oil – such as sunflower, coconut or olive oil
  • ¼ tsp essential oil, such as orange, lavender or chamomile
  • a few drops of liquid food colouring
  • orange peel, lavender or rose petals, to decorate (optional)

You will also need

  • mixing bowl
  • whisk
  • plastic moulds (see below for ideas)


1. Put the bicarbonate of soda, citric acid, cornflour and Epsom salt in a bowl, then whisk until fully combined.

2. Pour the base oil, essential oil and food colouring in a small bowl. Mix together well, combining the oil with the colouring as much as possible.

3. Very slowly add the oil mixture into the dry ingredients a little at a time, whisking between each addition. When all the oil is added, add a few tiny drops of water and whisk again (it will fizz when you add the water, so mix it in quickly). You're looking for the mixture to slightly clump together when pressed in your hand and keep its shape – it shouldn't be too wet.

4. If you're adding peel or flower petals to decorate, drop them into the bottom of your chosen mould. Pack your mixture tightly on top, pressing down and smoothing out the top with a teaspoon.

5. Leave your bath bomb in the mould to dry for 2-4 hrs, then carefully remove it. It's now ready to drop into the bath – watch it fizz away!

Employing Common Sense for Safe, Successful Bath Bombing

Like dancing through a storm, making bombs is fun but requires reasonable safety awareness. Wear a mask when measuring powders, don goggles blending fizzy ingredients to avoid stinging eyes. Check for skin sensitivity by dipping hands before full submersion. And as thrilling as those vibrant hues appear, avoid overdoing dyes to sidestep tattoo-like staining.

With sensible precautions, you’re ready for happy bath bomb experimentation! Soon the luxury of homemade spa experiences will be yours to enjoy anytime, affordable and lovingly crafted to perfectly match your mood. Now go forth and immerse yourself in sudsy, fizzy bliss!
