Bath Bomb Recipes

I absolutely love bath bombs. I'm a complete sucker for them, and they are my most favorite of all bath products (aside from homemade soaps!). Idea Queen managed to latch on to a few bath bomb recipes, and I'm excited to share them with YOU.

Each of the bath bomb recipes listed below are from our collection, and haven't been tested out by us personally. They also do not have an author, so we weren't able to give them proper credit. We'll be testing out these recipes soon, so be sure to be watching for reviews and stories!

How to Make Bath Bombs

Use the bath bomb recipes below to make your own bath bombs. As mentioned, these bath bomb recipes have not been tested. If you use any of these, please be sure to let us know how they turned out.

Bath Bombs/Bath Fizzies
2 tbs. citric acid
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 water.
