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 are not cheap, so if you use them often, you may want to try making your own at home. This article introduces a simple method for making homemade bath bombs. Before getting started, you'll need to gather the following materials.

If you have kids at home, making bath bombs together can be a very meaningful activity. Not only can the kids experience the joy of DIY, but they can also learn new things in the process.

Bath Bomb Recipe Ingredients and Materials:

  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup citric acid (as an alternative, use the same amount of either lemon juice, cream of tartar, buttermilk powder, or 1/4 cup each of baking powder and apple cider vinegar)
  • 1/2 cup Epsom salt
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 3/4 tbsp. water
  • 2 tsp. essential oil (lavender, eucalyptus, rose, orange, and lemongrass are popular for the bath)
  • 2 tbsp. oil (jojoba, sweet almond, coconut, olive, or even baby oil)
  • A few drops of food coloring
  • A mold of your choice, such as regular or mini-muffin tins, candy pans, or round plastic molds specifically for bath bombs
  • Optional: dried flowers or sugar cake decorations, like flowers or stars

How to make a bath bomb instructions

Step 1: With the exception of the citric acid, mix the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.

Step 2: Pour all of the liquid ingredients into a jar with a top. Close the jar and shake it vigorously.

Step 3: Pour the liquid mixture into the bowl of dry ingredients, and use your hands to combine and meld together. At this point, add the citric acid. You'll probably notice a slight fizzing reaction because of the citric acid. No need to panic, as this is normal.

Step 4: Mash the mixture into your chosen molds very tightly. You can overfill the molds slightly and use a spoon or glass to press the mixture in as tightly as possible. Immediately loosen the bombs from their molds onto wax paper and let them dry overnight.

Step 5: Give the bath bombs a day or two to completely dry before using them or wrapping them up as gifts.

Step 6: Pop one in the bathtub, enjoy the burst of colors and fizz and inhale the released aromas. Turn on some of your favorite music or a podcast to accompany you while you soak, or simply slide into the bath and enjoy all of your hard work.

How To Store Bath Bombs

  • Wrap bath bombs in plastic bags or other airtight containers to prevent moisture absorption.
  • Avoid exposure to UV light, which can degrade quality.
  • Store different types of bath bombs separately to prevent mixing fragrances.
  • Ensure bath bombs are completely dry before packaging.
  • Keep them in a cool, dry place.
