Bath Bombs!

"Bath fizzies are composed primarily of sodium bicarbonate and/or other soluble carbonate, sesquicarbonate, or bicarbonate, and citric acid and/or other organic acid, which create an acid-base 'fizzing' when the solid reacts with water as it dissolves, producing carbon dioxide gas and strewing its interior contents, which can include aromatic elements or possibly small fragments of sparkling glitter, into the bath."

"Bath bombs come as a large single-use tablet or ball, distinguished from other fizzies which come as grains."

"The bubbles tickle as they nucleate on, and then release from, the skin and hair of the bather." "Bath bombs may be considered therapeutic to the extent they contain essential oils to help a bather become energized or calm, such as mint or lavender." "They can also contain cleansing agents like sea salt or surfactants."

Basic Formula
"The simplest bath bombs would contain two parts sodium bicarbonate to one part citric acid, with just enough moisture to make the powder stick together--much like new-fallen snow packs into a snowball." "Good bath bombs are formulated with oils and butters, such as almond oil and shea butter, for moisturizing the skin." "They also tend to contain either essential oils or fragrance oils and pigment to color the bath water." "Dead Sea salt may be added for its therapeutic properties. Sometimes, manufacturers hide tiny toys or printed messaged inside, or include dried botanicals that are released into the bath as the bomb dissolves."

Basic Bath Bomb Recipe
1 part citric acid
2 parts baking soda
Witch hazel
Coloring of your choice
Fragrance oil of choice
Dome Shaped Mold

BLEND the citric acid and baking soda together very good!  If you don’t blend well, you end up with a grainy bomb. If you making a large batch, use a mixer.

Once you’ve blended really well, add your colorant. Dry pigments or a specialty bath fizzy colorant like La Bombes work best – don’t add too much though – the color shows up once you add the witch hazel.

Add fragrance oils to your personal nose preference.

Packing the mold: this can be difficult. Spritz (with a squirt bottle) the witch hazel onto your batch while stirring with the other hand. When your batch starts sticking together when squeezed, this is the sign you need to start putting it in molds.


Put the bombs in molds – wait a few minutes and tap them out. Let them air dry for 3 or 4 hours and voila! Wonderful, hard bath bombs. The harder you pack the bath bombs, the more dense, heavy, and durable bomb you will get.
