What is a Bath Bomb?

Bath bombs, also known as bath fizzers, are dry ingredients that are designed to effervesce once in contact with warm water. Once it hits the water, it releases essential oils, scents, colors, and bubbles to elevate your bath experience. Bath bombs can help condition the skin and soothe sore muscles. Additionally, they may help detox and relax the body and mind.   A bath bomb or bath fizzie is a consumer product used during bathing. It was invented and patented in 1989 by Mo Constantine, co-founder of Lush Cosmetics. It is a compacted mixture of wet and dry ingredients molded into any of several shapes and then dried. Bath water effervesces at the surface of a bath bomb immersed within it, with attendant dispersion of such ingredients as essential oil, moisturizer, scent, or colorant.

How to make bath bombs?

Making bath fizzies is a relatively simple process, and will add enjoyment to your bath time, but there are a few things you’ll need to do to ensure your bombs turn out perfectly. Here’s a quick overview of the steps you’ll need to take:
1. Combine the dry ingredients. In a large bowl, mix together the baking soda, citric acid, cornstarch, and Epsom salt.
2. Add the wet ingredients. Slowly add the water, food coloring, and fragrance oil or essential oils to the dry ingredients. Stir until everything is evenly mixed.
3. Pack the bath bomb mixture into the molds. Use your hands or a spoon to pack the mixture into the molds. Be sure to pack it in tightly, so the bombs hold their shape.
4. Let the wet ingredients in the bath bombs dry. Allow the bombs to dry in the molds for 24 hours before using them.
5. Enjoy! Once the bath bombs are dry, they’re ready to use. Drop one into your tub and enjoy!

When to take bath bombs out of molds?

After you’ve mixed your ingredients together and spooned the mixture into molds, it’s time to let the bath bombs set. The length of time this takes will vary depending on the size, shape, and depth of your molds.
However, as a general rule, you should allow the bath bombs to set for at least 24 hours. This will give them enough time to harden and achieve the desired shape.
After 24 hours, carefully remove the bath bombs from their molds and store them in an airtight container. When they’re submerged in water, they’ll fizz and dissolve, releasing their aromatic essential oils into the air.
