  • You can use soap dye or food coloring to color your bath bombs.  Just add a few drops along with the wet ingredients when mixing.
  • Once both bowls are mixed slowly begin to combine them, adding the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients a little at a time.

  • You may notice a little fizzing.  
  • That is ok, just try to keep it to a minimum by adding the wet ingredients slowly.
  • Slowly add more and mix each time.
  • This is to prevent any reactions from taking place during the mixing process.  
  • Continue to slowly add the wet ingredients and mix until all of the liquid has been added and the ingredients are combined.

It is now time to make bath bombs!

Making Bath Bombs

  • Begin by spritzing the bath bomb mixture with water and mixing it in.  
  • Add just enough to make the ingredients hold shape.
  • Then, use a bath bomb mold to form the mixture from the bowl(s) into shapes.

  • Be sure to pack the molds tightly!
  • Then, push both sides of the mold together until you hear a click.
  • Gently tap the sides of the mold to loosen the bomb.
