Bath Bomb recipe??


Recommended Posts

Thank you Landa I did find a couple..but they seem so different with the adding tsps of alchohl....or spritzing..etc... here is one I am thinking about...

1 cup of baking soda

1/2 cup citric acid

1/2 cup of cornstarch

1/4 cup of epsom salts

1 lg. vitamin E oil capsule (this aids in preserving your oils.)

1 tablespoon melted butter-shea, cocoa, mango

1 1/2 tablespoons of carrier oil-grapeseed, sweet almond, jojoba

To that 1/2 to 1 tablespoon of fragrance oil or about 15 to 20 drops of essential oils

3 teaspoons of distilled water

Bath Bombs / Bath Fizzies

2 tbs. citric acid (you can get this at a pharmacy)

2 tbs. cornstarch

1/4 cup baking soda

3 tbs. coconut oil (or any other emollient oil like almond, avocado or

apricot kernel oil)

1/4 tsp. fragrance oil

3-6 drops of food coloring (if desired)

Paper candy cups

Place all of the dry ingredients (first 3) into a bowl and mix well. Place

coconut oil into a small glass bowl and add fragrance and food coloring.

Slowly add oil mixture into dry ingredients and mix well. Scoop up small

amounts of the mixture and shape into 1" balls. Let the balls rest on a

sheet of waxed paper for about 2 to 3 hours, then place each ball into a

candy cup to let dry and harden for 24 to 48 hours. Store bombs in a

closed, air-tight container. To use, drop 1 to 3 bombs into warm bath


havent tried this yet but looks easy enough

yes, there are alot of variations to the bath bomb recipe. Most peeps explain their rationale as to what works for them. I suppose experience is the best teacher though so I would recommend jumping in and trying one out, see what the results are and then tweak from there as needed. Since there are so many variables that come into play, namely climate conditions, that is really the best way to begin.

Good luck
