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

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!

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!

Natural Homemade Lavender Bath Fizzies Recipe with Skin Loving Shea Butter, Apricot Kernel Oil and Sea Salt

Want a truly indulgent bath experience? This easy homemade lavender bath bomb recipe is enriched with skin loving shea butter and apricot kernal oil and produces a very dense, concentrated fizz.

I made these lavender bath bombs two ways. I used a Basic Guest Round Silicone Soap Mold as well as a plastic round two piece bath bomb mold. You can use any mold you like but be sure to keep it simple or you’ll have trouble getting them out of your mold in one piece. I found that with the silicone mold it works best if you press the mixed ingredients into the mold cavities all at once instead of layering it in. You’ll also want to give them extra drying time before unmolding. I recommend two days.

Homemade Lavender Bath Bomb Recipe

If it’s super humid where you live use a round two piece bath bomb mold – in which you press the two sides of the mold together around the mixed ingredients – or a meat baller as this works better and is less likely to fall apart when being unmolded. Plus you can unmold and wrap the round bath bombs sooner.

Ingredients:

4.5 oz. baking soda
2.25 oz. citric acid
1 oz. fine sea salt
1 oz. white (cosmetic) kaolin clay
.5 oz. apricot kernel oil
.5 oz. shea butter
4 ml lavender essential oil

Directions:

Using a digital scale weigh out the baking soda, citric acid, sea salt and kaolin clay into a glass bowl and mix together with a fork.

Now weigh out the shea butter into a small glass Pyrex measuring cup and heat in the microwave until melted. Weigh out the apricot kernel oil and stir into the melted shea butter.

Using a graduated plastic transfer pipette measure out the lavender essential oil and add to the melted shea butter and oil.

Slowly drizzle the melted butter and oil into the dry ingredients a little at a time mixing with a fork as you go until the dry ingredients stay clumped together when you press onto them.

Now firmly press the dry ingredients into your mold(s) of choice. Allow to dry, then remove from molds and wrap. This recipe will yield approximately five lavender bath fizzies if you use the guest silicone soap mold or about one and a half large bath bombs.

To use simply drop your homemade lavender bath bombs into the tub under running water.

DIY Homemade Lemongrass and Sage Bath Bomb Recipe

With this year’s polar vortex dipping South I’m pretty much over winter at this point. So I thought that instead of sharing another winter DIY,  I’d instead share a spring inspired DIY bath project to remind us of what’s ahead. And hopefully it won’t take too terribly long because these 1°F temps are definitely not something we are used to here in Southwestern Virginia! While it’s finally warming up a bit, we are expecting some freezing rain in the morning. I’m going to pretend the weatherman was pulling a prank, however, and instead give you a rather fresh and green homemade bath bomb recipe to add some fun to your bath. Besides, isn’t a bath the perfect way to warm up on a cold winter day?

Homemade Fresh Spring DIY Lemongrass and Sage Bath Bomb RecipeDIY Lemongrass & Sage Bath Bombs

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

2.25 oz. citric acid
4.5 oz. baking soda
1 oz. argan oil
.5 oz. kaolin clay (also called white cosmetic clay)
2.25 ml Lemongrass Sage fragrance oil
pinch of chromium green oxide powder

Supplies:

digital kitchen scale
Leaf Wax Tart Mold
glass bowl or large glass measuring cup
graduated plastic transfer pipette
fork

Instructions:

Weigh out all of the dry ingredients – the baking soda, citric acid, clay and pigment – using a digital kitchen scale and combine in a glass bowl. Mix ingredients thoroughly with a fork.

Weigh out the argan oil – chosen for it’s intense moisturizing benefits! – and drizzle over the dry ingredients. Then measure out the fragrance oil using a plastic transfer pipette and add to the dry ingredients as well.

Use the fork to thoroughly combine all ingredients together and mix until all dry ingredients have been fully incorporated with the oil and fragrance.

How to Make Homemade Bath Bombs – DIY Lemongrass and Sage Bath Bomb Recipe in a Leaf Mold for SpringNow firmly press the bath bomb ingredients into each cavity of the leaf mold. Press firmly to ensure they are packed as much as possible into each cavity of the mold. Then allow to dry overnight.

The next day you can gently press each bath bomb from the mold’s cavities. Then package and store in a cool, dry location until use.

These were a lot easier to make than I had thought they would be as I’ve heard horror stories of bath bombs fizzing up in the process of making them. I experienced no fizzing and did not see any need to spritz with witch hazel.

This recipe will yield approximately nine, 1 oz. “leafy” green bath bombs perfect for spring wedding favors or as homemade gifts for Easter baskets. To use simply drop 2-3 bath bombs into warm bath water and enjoy!
