Bath Bombs – Fizzing

Make 7 medium sized fizzing bath bombs with this recipe.

Bath Bombs – Fizzing

What you need

1 1/2 cups cup of baking soda or bicarbonate of soda
1/2 cup of citric acid
2 tsp of Almond Oil or Apricot kernel oil
1/2 tbs of water
5 drops of food coloring
10-15 drops of fragrance oil or essential oil


Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl and stir until well mixed. Drizzle in the almond oil and stir until mixture is moistened. Add more oil and fragrance and stir until well mixed.

If the mixture is crumbly then add more oil or a dash of water.

Roll the mixture into a ball using your hands or press it into a lightly oiled mold. Use a bath bomb mold or a chocolate mold.

Let it slip out from the mold and then put the ball/shape on a sheet of wax paper and leave it to dry till it is hard. It may take several days.

Store them in a airtight container. Use 1 bath bomb per bath.

  2. My bath bombs have been sitting on the verandah for about 2 hours and they’re almost done! :):):):) can’t wait to have a relaxing hot bath tonight! Also does anyone know how to make hair moisturizer? I’ve been looking for a recipe

  3. this sounds really fun

  4. you can also find citric acid at Marlene’s Natural foods store. I love this recipe because it is so simlpe and easy!!

  5. great job! keep it up! next time make even more so i can look! hugs an admirer

  6. A pair of similarly scented candles would make a nice set. A hot bath by candlelight enveloped in the fragrance(my choices would be lavender or vanilla)sounds like a destresser to me!

  7. Thanks so much!
