My friend, Bambi, and I made this bath fizzy powder recipe together. Our initial plan was to make moisturizing bath bombs. We were more concerned about creating a luxurious and moisturizing bath experience over the splash of colors some bath bombs offer. Therefore we created a homemade bath bomb recipe with ingredients that moisturize skin and Epsom salt to help ease our aches and pains. (Bambi has had arthritis since childhood and I have fibromyalgia so we’re all about natural products that bring relief in that department.) Unfortunately, the humidity and heat was a little excessive that day and our bath bombs didn’t hold up in bath bomb form. So I simply crumbled the broken bath bombs into a powder and filled two mason jars with the bath bomb powder. Problem solved.

So you can basically use the same recipe to make either homemade bath bombs or bath fizzy powder. To make moisturizing bath bombs instead of the bath fizzy powder, simply use 2.75″ diameter Milky Way plastic bath bomb molds to create your bath bombs. (Alternately you can also try the metal bath bomb molds. While I don’t have any experience with these, I’m told they do not leave a “ring” around the center of the bath bombs.) This moisturizing bath fizzy powder recipe yields three bath bombs when using the 2.75″ diameter molds or will fill two 16 oz. mason jars when making bath fizzy powder.

Ingredients:

1.8 oz. Epsom salt
11.25 oz. baking soda
3.8 oz. citric acid
2.4 oz. arrowroot powder
.75 oz. mango butter
.5 oz. cocoa butter
.35 oz. safflower oil
.6 oz. fragrance oil, of choice
bath bomb yellow powder color, to suit

Instructions:

You will begin by weighing out the dry ingredients.

Using a digital scale, weigh out the Epsom salt, baking soda, citric acid, arrowroot powder and color. Combine in a large glass bowl or large Pyrex measuring cup. Whisk the ingredients together until they are thoroughly combined. (Using a color specifically formulated for bath bombs will keep the product from leaving a ring of color in your tub.)

Next, prepare your wet ingredients.

Weigh out the mango and cocoa butters. Combine in a glass bowl or Pyrex measuring cup separate from the one you used for the dry ingredients.

Heat the butters in the microwave at 50% power until melted. (Alternately you may also use a double boiler.)

Now weigh out the safflower oil and the fragrance oil and stir into the melted butters. (If you prefer to use an essential oil, use .2 oz. of the essential oil of your choice.)

Slowly pour the dry ingredients into your wet ingredients, whisking with a fork as you pour.

Mix well until the wet and dry ingredients are fully incorporated with one another.

If you are making the bath fizzy powder, spread the mixture onto a baking pan lined with parchment or freezer paper. Allow to dry overnight. Or place in the oven on warm until the powder dries.

Use the parchment paper to pick up and pour the bath fizzy powder into your containers, then screw on the lids and label as desired for personal use or gifting.

If you are making bath bombs using this bath fizzy powder recipe, scoop the mixture into each side of your bath bomb molds so they are overflowing.

Now mash the two sides of the bath bomb mold together tightly, twisting to remove the excess from the outside back into your container of prepared ingredients. (If you pack one side of the mold and then pack the other side, your two halves won’t stick together.)

Allow your bath bombs to dry overnight in the molds, then gently remove from the molds the next day, wrap and label as desired.

Just for laughs, I created this fun little video of myself and two bath bombs using the new Prisma app and the Party Party app. Bambi took the photos. We all need to be a little silly sometimes.

Also, I’d love it if you could stop by Bambi’s shop on Etsy, Happy Tree Frog Studios. Bambi makes and sells beautiful handmade beaded jewelry. A recent breast cancer survivor, the extra money from her shop goes towards helping her pay off her extensive medical bills as well as purchase the medication she now must take daily for the next five years to help prevent a reoccurrence.

Peppermint Bath Bomb Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

1.8 oz. Epsom salt
11.25 oz. baking soda
3.85 oz. citric acid
2.4 oz. arrowroot powder
.75 oz. shea butter
.5 oz. cocoa butter
.45 oz. sweet almond oil
.6 oz. peppermint fragrance oil (or .3 oz. peppermint essential oil)

Instructions:

Using a digital scale begin by weighing out the dry ingredients in a large glass bowl or 4 cup or larger glass Pyrex measuring cup. Set aside.

In a separate container weigh out the cocoa and shea butters. Heat at reduced power in the microwave or in a double boiler until fully melted. Carefully remove from heat then weigh out the sweet almond oil and fragrance and stir into the melted butters.

Now slowly pour the melted oils and butters into the dry ingredients mixing with a fork until well blended.

You’re now ready to mold your homemade bath bombs! (I used clear plastic bath bomb molds like these. To do this take a large scoop of the mixture and place into one side of the mold. Add more until the bath bomb mixture is piled above the shape. DO NOT press any of the mixture into the mold at this point. Repeat with the other half of the mold. Now press the two sides of the mold firmly together and brush away any excess. (This keeps the two halves together. If you press the mixture into each side before putting it together the two halves will come apart.)

DIY Halloween Pumpkin Bath Bomb Recipe

Treat yourself this fall with this easy DIY Halloween Pumpkin Bath Bomb Recipe. You’ll love the intoxicating scent of pumpkin spice from your favorite fragrance oil and the moisturizing shea butter, sesame oil and detoxifying sea salt. Plus, with a few tips you can make these perfect the very first try!

DIY Halloween Pumpkin Bath Bomb Recipe

Ingredients:

13.5 oz. baking soda
8 oz. citric acid
3 oz. fine sea salt
2 oz. white kaolin (cosmetic) clay
1.5 oz. shea butter
1.5 oz. sesame oil
8 ml pumpkin or pumpkin spice fragrance oil of choice
pinch each of red iron oxide and yellow iron oxide pigment powders

Directions:

You’ll need a Wilton Silicone Leaf and Pumpkin Mold for this project. (You can also use this mold for my DIY Pumpkin Spice Air Fresheners and Pumpkin Fall Soap Recipe!) I also used a round bath bomb mold (optional.) (Note: The original Wilton leaf and pumpkin silicone mold I used for this project is not longer available online. However, they do have a great pumpkin silicone mold as well as this fun leaf and acorn silicone mold.)

Begin by using a digital scale begin by weighing all of the dry ingredients and combining them in a large glass bowl or an 8-cup Pyrex measuring cup. Mix well to combine using a fork then add a pinch each of the pigment powders. (You only need a small amount! The color comes through when you add the wet ingredients.)

In a separate container weigh out the shea butter then melt in the microwave or a double boiler. Then weigh out and add the sesame oil to the melted shea butter.

Using a graduated plastic transfer pipette, measure out the fragrance oil and stir into the wet ingredients. Mix well.

Now slowly pour the melted shea butter and sesame oil into the dry ingredients mixing as you go. Combine thoroughly so the entire mixture is damp.

You’re now ready to use your mold(s)! This recipe yielded three pumpkin bath bombs, one leaf bath bomb and one round bath bomb for me.

To mold your bath bombs take a large scoop of the mixture and place into your first pumpkin cavity. Add more until the bath bomb mixture is piled above the shape. DO NOT press any of the mixture into the mold until you’ve done this. Now press the mixture firmly into the mold all at once. Brush away the excess.

(Pressing the bath bomb mixture into the mold in stages will cause it to separate at those points and break apart.)

Repeat with the additional cavities.

You’ll want to wait two days before unmolding these to unmold clean shapes.

To create the round bath bomb(s) overfill each half of the round bath bomb mold the same way you did the silicone mold. Do NOT press the sides into the mold halves before joining them or you’ll end up with half circle bath bombs. Now press each overfilled side of the mold halves firmly together. Brush away any excess from the edges. (I also twisted the two halves of my mold together a bit.) You can gently unmold these immediately or wait a day.

To unmold the pumpkin and leaf bath bombs I first placed a cutting board on top of the mold then gently turned them over together in order to prevent any of the bath bombs from accidentally dropping out and breaking. Then I gently pressed each bath bomb out of the cavities.

Sore muscles? Substitute the sea salt in this pumpkin bath bomb recipe with epsom salt! You can also substitute the sesame oil with any other of your favorite carrier oils!

DIY Halloween Pumpkin Bath Bomb Recipe

Once your pumpkin bath bombs have dried completely, they are ready to package! Simply wrap your bath bombs in plastic food service film or shrink wrap or use them right away! To use, simply add one bath bomb to warm running bath water, allow to dissolve and enjoy!
