Ingredients

Instructions

Place the baking soda, buttermilk, kaolin clay and cornstarch into a large mixing bowl. Whisk the dry ingredients together.

Add the coconut oil to the bowl. This binds all the ingredients together, so the bath bombs don’t crumble when you touch them! Add the Polysorbate 80, which helps disperse the colorant and also helps ensure it doesn’t stick to the tub. (The Polysorbate 80 is mixed in with the coconut oil in the supplies picture.)

Add the scented oil and food coloring to the mix. Start with 1-2 drops of color and mix it in. If you want a darker color, add 1-2 more drops and repeat until you get the color you want.

Add the poppy seeds and cosmetic glitter. Mix the ingredients thoroughly. You may need to use your hands to break down any lumps and make sure everything is completely mixed together. The mixture is the perfect consistency when it holds together when you press it into your hands and feels like wet sand.

Fill both sides of the bath bomb mold with the mixture. Press molds together and grind to remove excess mixture. Gently tap each side of the mold to release the bombs. To avoid the bombs breaking during the drying phase, I put them in a mini muffin tin. They fit perfectly!

Allow to dry a minimum of 24 hours. If your climate is wet or cold, allow an additional 24 hours. A good rule of thumb is that when it is hard to the touch, they are ready for the tub!

Store in an airtight container until ready for use.

My 12 year old loves bath bombs – we’re going to have a bash at making them ourselves as they’re costing a fortune! These are first on the list – thanks!
