Making your own bath bombs is really quit easy and fun! You should be making your own as opposed to those store bought, commercially made ,chemical laden ones that may look cool, smell cool..but really are not good for you or body. Why put chemicals on your biggest organ, your skin!..

Of course, we make and sell bath bombs that are natural and are made the way I am going to show you can support us by buying some from us …but you still can make your own…heres a list of ingredients that you will need to gather before starting :

baking soda

citric acid

essential oils

large mixing bowl

freezer paper

molds (can use muffin tins or bath bomb mold)

water sprayer with mist setting


bath tea/herbs(optional)

Himalyan sea salt (optional)

clays, epsom salts, optional

supplies…measuring cups and large bowl, clean surface

clean surface area..i like to clean the area off and place a layer of paper towels down as well …get your gloves on and measure : 1 cup citric acid and 2 cups of baking soda..mix with hands to get all the clumps out…if you want colored bombs..put a small amount of clay (there’s rose clay for red or pink , etc) artificial colors etc ..mix well with hands..

make a volcano in the middle of the dry ingredients..

make your dry ingredients looks like a a finger in the middle to represent the volcano opening….

get your bath bomb molds near you and ready ..heres where you add the salts, teas herbs etc
now, in your hole, add the oils:

1/2 tsp each of essential oils of your choice ..I will have some combinations below to try..

now, start mixing with your hands, and every little bit or so , spritzing with water until the mixture holds together ..not too much water! be careful or they will not set in your molds…

when its holding together well, pack the half of the mold tightly, then add a little on top to hold the two sides together…now do the same for the other half and squish them together..remove the excess and carefully place them on the freezer paper, in the molds to dry , preferably over night.
after drying over night and removing the molds…I let them dry an additional day especially if its been humid out..

aren’t they pretty???

have crumbs??bag those up too, they will fizz…enjoy one per bath (these are the size of baseballs)

my favorite combinations:



rosemary /eucalyptus


hope you enjoy making your own!!! cant wait to see what yours looks like!..
