Bath bombs are really popular right now, and here is your chance to learn to make your own pretty pink bath bombs! I love to use one at least a few times a week as I soak in the tub, and they make fabulous gifts.
Pretty Pink Bath Bombs DIY
You will need several things to make these bath bombs. You can obviously make your bath bombs any color you want, and you can play around with different essential oils as well. Pink is great for floral scents or even something fun like a bubble gum soap scent or fruity essential oil.
- 2 oz Epsom salt
- 4 oz baking soda
- 2 oz corn starch
- 2 oz citric acid
- 1 tbsp grapeseed oil
- ½ tbsp water
- 1 drop pink soap coloring
- (optional) essential oil
- Large bowl
- 4-6 small round bath bomb molds
- Small jar with lid
- Measuring cups
- Measuring spoons
Hint: You can often buy supplies in a kit. Check out this bath bomb kit (affiliate link), which includes the molds, assorted colors, and even some shrink wrapping for your final product.
- Mix the dry ingredients first (Epsom salt, baking soda, cornstarch and citric acid), using the whisk. Mix well to ensure there are no clumps.
- Pour the wet ingredients (grapeseed oil, water and food coloring (and if you’re using essential oil)) into jar, secure the lid and shake well.
- Very slowly add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture, about a few drops at time, while whisking. If you’re not pouring slowly enough, the mixture will start to fizz and you don’t want that to happen.
- Once all of the liquid has been poured into the dry mixture, mix very well until the color is consistent.
- Immediately fill the molds with the mixture, firmly stuffing each side full.
- Secure both parts of the mold together and let set. I always give it about a day, just to be on the safe side.
- Carefully release bath bombs from molds and put into an airtight container, or individual cello bags.
