Today I’m going to show you guys how to make your own BATHBOMB step by step!!!
What you’ll need:
- Baking Soda (You can buy this in every supermarket)
- Citric Acid (You can buy this in drugstores, pharmacists and online)
- Essential oil(s) (You can buy this also in drugstores, pharmacists and online)
- An oil ( I used coconutoil that isn’t scented) (You can buy this also in drugstores, supermarkets and online)
- Food coloring (You can buy this in drugstores and online)
- Optional: Bath salt (You can buy this also in drugstores and online) and Pigment glitter
You’ll also need a bowl, a misting spray and some molds.
STEP 1: Mix all the dry ingrediënts in the bowl
You will always need the double amound of baking soda from the citric acid.
So, If I used 500grams of baking soda, I will need 250 grams of citric acid.
This is also the time if you want to add some glitter and bath salts! I used the glitter pigments of NYX Cosmetics. I think if it’s safe for your eyes, it will be safe for the rest of your body no? 🙂
If you want multiple colors then you have to sepparate the mixture into different bowls.
STEP 2: Mix all the wet ingrediënts in the spraybottle
Put 1,5 tablespoons of essential oil in the misting bottle; 1,5 tablespoons of coconut oil (or another oil) in the bottle and a little bit of the food coloring in the bottle and mix it well!
You can also make different colors.
STEP 3: Mix everything
Now you can spray the dry ingrediënts with your wet ingrediënts. Do it carefully otherwise if you spray it too much, you will ruin your mixture for your bathbomb. Also, every time you spray the dry ingrediënts, you have to wisk the mixture. Because the water will activate our ‘dough’ and then it starts to fizz.
If you make a ball in your hands and when you let it fall into the bowl and it won’t break, it will be ready!
STEP 4: Put it into the molds
Take a spoon and put the dough into the molds. You can choose to use different colors, paterns and molds if you want to. Press down firmly with your spoon or fingers!
STEP 5: Refrigerate
If you want to use the bathbomb right away, refrigerate it for about 1hour. You can also let it cool overnight!
Keep your bathbombs in an airtight bag or container and put it somewhere where it’s not humid.
Tadaaa this is how you easily make some bathbombs! You can also wrap it in a cute packaging and give it to someone!
(PS. I’m sorry for the very bad pictures, but the lighting was very bad 😦 )
I hope you guys have enjoyed it!!!
