DIY Bath Bombs

This bath bomb recipe will show you how to make diy bath bombs filled with plant-based natural colour and scents.


  • plastic molds in the shape of your choice
  • spray bottle



  • In a large bowl, measure in the baking soda and citric acid and mix well.
  • Add a 1/2 teaspoon of coloring and mix well. If needed, slowly add more colour.
  • Add 20 drops of essential oils and mix well.
  • Use an atomizer or spray bottle filled with witch hazel, then spray the entire surface of the powder mix and mix with your hands.
  • Keep spraying and mixing rapidly until the mixture holds together when scrunched with your hand (think of making snowballs).
  • Working quickly, firmly press mixture into the DIY bath bombs molds.
  • Gently tap the mold so that the bath bomb releases and carefully lay on a towel or tray to dry.
  • Let the DIY bath bombs dry for 30 minutes or until they are firm and won't fall apart.


To make a round bath bomb, over-fill two round halves and press them together firmly before tapping the molds to release the bath bomb. Or you could simply package them up in pairs in an organza bag.
