Bath Bombs Galore

I really enjoy making bath bombs. It's basically a mix and mold process and cleanup is so easy since the bowls are practically pre-washed!

I've been working on recipes, trying new ingredients. Here's a couple I feel are worth sharing. They mold easily, harden nicely and smell oh so good!



Rose Bath Bombs: 2 cups baking soda 1.5 citric acid 1/4 cup cornstarch 2 tbsp pink Himalayan salt 2.5 tbsp cocoa butter 1.5 tbsp coconut oil a sprinkle of natural red food coloring

Mix dry ingredients. Melt butter and oil and kneed it in. 2 tbsp rose water in a mister

Spray the mixture with the rose water and mix until you get a wet sand consistency. Add essential oils: I chose ravensara and lavender.

Mold into shapes (using bath bomb molds or silicone molds for other shapes).

Allow to dry for 24 hours and then store in an airtight container.



Foaming Bath Bombs:

My son knows how to say: ‘bubble bath’ but he never gets to sit in one (SLS- yuck!) I added milk powder to this recipe after reading that it makes the bath bubbly. It doesn't, it foams more than bubbles. The bomb came out lovely even without bubbling powers.



I made two mixtures for these bombs to get two colors.

Yellow Mixture:

  • 1 cup baking soda

  • 1 cup citric acid

  • ½ cup of milk powder

  • ½ cup cornstarch

  • A sprinkle of yellow turmeric food coloring powder

  • ¼ cup calendula infused grapeseed oil

  • ⅛ cup jasmine hydrosol

Mix dry ingredients. Add oil and essential oils and mix them in. Spray in hydrosol and while mixing until the mixture feels like wet sand and molds into shape when you squeeze it.

Grey Mixture:

  • 1 cup citric acid

  • 1 cup baking soda

  • ½ cup of milk powder

  • ¼ cup Provence clay

  • ⅛ cup dried ground herbs (calendula, lavender, and sage)

  • ⅛ cup cornstarch

  • ¼ cup calendula infused grapeseed oil

  • ⅛ cup hydrosol

Mix dry ingredients. Add oil and essential oils and mix them in. Spray in hydrosol and while mixing until the mixture feels like wet sand and molds into shape when you squeeze it.



For marbled bath bombs:

Take a cup from each mixture and place it in a bowl. Mix really lightly, you don't want to incorporate the colors but to marble them (I mixed a little too much).

Then load a mold with the marbled mixture.

For layered bath bombs:

Put a thin layer of yellow mixture in both sides of your mold, then fill the rest with grey. Press together and take out your beautiful layered bomb.
