Mixing Ingredients

Mixing Ingredients

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.

Putting Into Mold

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.


  1. For the person who wanted to know where to find essiential oils – I find lavendar, eucalyptus and tea tree oils in the supermarket in the same aisle as the cough medications. The Chemist may also have a selection.

  2. I have looked and looked but i can’t find essential oil or fragrance oil anywhere! I really want to make my mom some Bath Bombs for her Birthday. Can somebody please give me some pointers as to where they would be found?

  3. the citric acid is important it gives the fizzie effect when put in water

  4. has anyone tried using cupcake papers or candy wraps for gifting?
