DIY Bath Bomb


Hey everyone!
It's winter season! Yay! It is so snowy outside and as far as I know it's snowy in lots of countries :) So, it's time to pamper and have a bath with...colourful fizzers. Yep, as you can guess in this post i'm gonna tell you how to make a bath bomb which not only smells good but also moisturising your skin. I have a verrrry dry skin, especially after having a bath but a bath with such bomb is a completely another story- it makes my skin feel so much better!

Maybe the final result won't be like after a Lush bomb, it's hard to recreate it. But, our bath bomb is the waaaaaay much cheaper, you are a real designer for your fizzer with a big option of colours and scents and let's be honest, when you make something yourself, it is more pleasant to use it afterwards.

By the way, Christmas and New Year are coming so you can gift hand-made presents for your loved ones including this fizzer.

I quite like making some treats for bath and body and one year ago I made a blogpost about HOW TO MAKE A LIP BALM so you can also make it and add it to your handmade present.

And now we are going to make our bath bomb/fizzer/whatever you call this

What you need:

  • Sodium Bicarbonate - 6 tablespoons
  • Citric acid- 3 tablespoons
  • Oil ( for example castor oil, peach oil or avocado oil)- 1-2 tablespooms ( I use 1.5 tbsp, because the main thing is not to pour too much of it because it's not that good for a bath bomb, but it is still moisturising skin)
Small note: you can use any amount of this ingredients, the main thing is that the proprortion should stay as 6:3:1
  • Food colours ( yep these ordinary food colours you use for baking) or water-soluble colour ( you can find those in hobby shops)
  • Essential oils or fragrances for a scent
  • Forms for bath bombs. There are some special ones again in hobby shops, but silicone forms for baking ( which I personally used) and some other specific forms for anything are also really good.
  • You can also add some glitter, sea salts, petals for making a bath look more fancy

How to make it:

1. Mix sodium bicarbonate and citric acid.

2.Little by little add oil. Mix it all really fast.

3. Add colours. (IMPORTANT NOTE!) the main thing is that our "basis" for bath bombs shouldn't react on any liquids ( including colours and oils) so you need to mix it fast. I used blue, red, green and violet colours.

4. Add some scent, because can we even imagine a bath bomb and fizzer without a gorgeous scent??

5. So, we have different types of basis for bath bomb. Now we are going to do the most creative part- we are gonna put this into a form. You can make a bath bomb with only one colour, you can put different colours in layers, you can make it using different colours inside and outside- it's up to you. The main thing is to press each layer, everything should be very tightly.

6. We have everything in forms, the room where you create everything smells so good. Now we have to wait  5-6 hours ( or just put it overnight) and voila, your super bath bomb with moisturising oil, bright colous and your favourite scents is ready ♥

As you can see, everything is very easy and cheap.
It's kinda a classic recipe for it which, as I have mentioned, you can change by adding some extra things. For making more bubbles, you can use soap shavings. Or just make a bubbling bath and put your fizzer in it.

Experiment and enjoy!

Let me know in the comments if you have tried it and what do you think about it!

Have a nice day/morning/night/evening and a great festive season,
I am OK
