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.

The great thing about bath bombs is that they contain the precise amount of oils and bath salts that you would normally have to purchase separately. Not only does using bath fizzers speed up the bath time process, but they make the experience so much better.

Why Use Bath Bombs?

Adding spa-like ingredients to your bath can provide mental and physical benefits.
As a bath bomb dissolves, it releases fragrances like lavender. Studies show lavender aromatherapy can reduce stress hormones and improve heart circulation.
Bath bombs also often contain plant oils. Research finds oils like sunflower, coconut, argan, and jojoba may activate wound healing and skin repair when applied topically.
So beyond being relaxing, thoughtfully crafted bath bombs can also support wellness through carefully chosen natural ingredients.

What are the benefits of using natural bath bombs?

  • Use natural moisturizing ingredients like essential oils and plant extracts that can soothe muscles.
  • Avoid toxic chemicals like phthalates and parabens found in some conventional bath bombs. This makes them a healthier choice.
  • Are often made with biodegradable materials, making them more eco-friendly.
  • Use cruelty-free, vegan ingredients so no animals are harmed.
  • Provide aromatherapy benefits from essential oils that can reduce stress and improve mood.

Common ingredients in natural bath bomb recipes include:

  • Baking soda
  • Citric acid
  • Colorings from plants (e.g., spirulina for green, turmeric for yellow)
  • Cornstarch
  • Epsom salts
  • Essential oils
  • Plant oils (coconut, almond, olive, etc.)
  • Witch hazel

Easy DIY Natural Bath Bomb Recipe

Here's a quick, easy DIY recipe for pretty pink natural bath bombs. You'll need two mixing bowls, a fork for mixing, and candy or ice cube molds in the shapes of spheres. This recipe will make two to three, depending on the size of your molds. Use one per bath.

Step 1

In the first bowl, mix together the dry ingredients:
½ cup baking soda
1 tbsp. beetroot powder
¼ cup citric acid
¼ cup cornstarch
¼ cup Epsom salt
Dried flower petals (optional)

Step 2

In the second bowl, combine the wet ingredients:
2 tbsp. plant-based oil of your choice
1 tsp. essential oil(s) of your choice

Step 3

Slowly mix the dry ingredients into the bowl of wet ingredients. The resulting bomb batter should be moist and stick together. If looks crumbly, add a little extra oil and stir with the fork until moistened.

Step 4

Fill your molds with the pink mixture, then refrigerate the bath bombs for an hour until firm.
After this, the bath bombs will be ready to use. Simply place one in the warm bath water, get into the bath, and watch the bomb bubble. As the ball dissolves, your water will turn pink as the room fills with the lovely essential oil fragrance you've chosen.
