Bath Bomb – Glitter Fairy

Bath Bomb – Glitter Fairy

These bath bombs are all natural and perfect to give as a homemade gift! This recipe makes 7 medium sized bath bombs.

What you need

1 1/4 cups cup of Baking soda or Bicarbonate of Soda
1/2 cup of Citric acid
2-6 tsp of Almond Oil or Apricot kernel oil
1/2-2tbs tbs of Water
5 drops of Food coloring or mica
10-15 drops of vanilla fragrance oil or essential oil
3 vanilla pods
1/4 tsp of fine cosmetic grade glitter.


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.

When we make our own DIY Bath Bombs we use and highly recommend this bath bomb mold for making single bath bombs or if you are making multiple bath bombs you may want to check out these silicon multi bath bomb molds and even a bath bomb press if you intend on making hundreds of Bath bombs for selling or gifts.
