Instructions

In a large mixing bowl, add the baking soda, citric acid, cornstarch, Epsom salts and kaolin clay. [I use kaolin clay in bath bombs that use a mold that is not the typical round mold to give them more stability when you pop them from their mold.]

Whisk dry ingredients together.

Add the coconut oil. This binds all the ingredients together, so you bath bombs don’t crumble when you touch them!

Add the polysorbate 80. This helps the coconut oil disperse more evenly in your bath water, makes the bath bombs bubbly and prevents the mica from sticking to the side of the tub.

Add coconut oil. This adds another level of stability to your donut bath bombs. It makes them harder and easier to remove from the mold.

Mix in the glazed donut scented oil. You may need to use your hands to break down any lumps and make sure everything is mixed in. The mixture is perfect when it holds together when you press it into your hands and feels like wet sand.

Mix in 2 tablespoons of the orange glow in the dark colorant and 2 teaspoons of the orange glow in the dark cosmetic glitter.

Add the mixture into each cavity of the mold until the mixture is packed in firmly. Allow to dry a minimum of 24 hours. If these are not 100% dry, they will break when you take them out.

I like the idea of making my own bath bombs, I’ve tried it once but it’s just getting all the glitters and scents and colours to begin with x

OK now, this is so cool! I love that they glow in the dark. I think they would make interesting gifts to give as well – it would be fun to play with seeing how one glows!
