Option #1 – Bath Bomb Scrumbles from Scratch

Ingredients:

2 lb. Sodium Bicarbonate (baking soda)
1 lb. Citric Acid
10 – 30 drops Skin Safe Fragrance or Essential Oil
Colorant
1 tsp. Decorative Botanicals, if desired

Supplies:

Large Spoon or Whisk
4 Clear Plastic Ornaments
Funnel
Wax Paper
Baking Sheet
Bowl

Instructions:

Add citric acid and sodium bicarbonate in a bowl followed by 10 to 30 drops of your favorite fragrance oil or essential oil. The more drops added, the stronger the fragrance will become. Slowly mix the ingredients until they are well blended.

For a pop of color, mix in different colorants. We recommend skin safe colorants that won’t irritate or dye your skin such as charcoal or dash of red and green clay. Glitter also adds a sparkle to let your present shine. Don’t feel obligated to color your bath bomb ornament, white mixtures can make the perfect snowball or snowman.

Remove the top of the ornament and use a funnel to pour the bath bomb mixture into the ornament. Add finishing touches like decorative botanicals in the bulb before securely closing the top.

Option #2 – Using Ready-Made Bath Bombs

Ingredients:

3 Bath Bombs (find another great holiday bath bomb recipe here)

Supplies:

Resealable Plastic Bag
Rolling Pin
4 Clear Plastic Ornaments
Funnel

Instructions:

Place one bath bomb into a resealable plastic bag, press out the air, and seal it shut. Using a rolling pin or another hard object, carefully crush the bath bomb on a hard surface. Continue to break down the bath bomb until there are no large chunks left.

Remove the top of the plastic ornament and pour in the crushed bath bomb using the funnel. Another option is cutting a bottom corner of the resealable plastic bag containing the bath bomb mixture and pouring it directly into the ornament. Alternate layers between different bath bombs for a colorful design. Once the ornament is filled, replace and secure the top.
