If you are a newbie to making bath bombs, this guide can help you. Here, you learn where to start and how to make these luxuries. Let’s begin:

Gather Your Supplies 

Before getting started with a bath bomb recipe, you need to gather equipment. You may need a kitchen scale, a large bowl to mix the ingredients, gloves, a dust mask, and a hand sprayer. Also, get a lush bath bomb kit to give the desired shape to your bath bombs.

While looking for molds and kits, you may across different types of bath bombs kits. For beginners, kits made of plastic are suitable tools. They are affordable and easy to use.

Pick Up Ingredients

Buying ingredients to make bombs can be a little challenging, especially when you don’t know where to get all of them. It turns into an overwhelming process in case you are not aware of ingredients to buy. If you are a beginner, then you can begin with a small batch of ingredients to make small bath bombs. A simple recipe includes fragrance oil of your choice, bicarbonate of soda, citric acid, food color, and carrier oil. 

Instead of purchasing ingredients from different stores, pick a shop offering all types of bath bomb ingredients at one place. The store can have a bath bomb making kit to make the process of making these luxuries easier. 

Measure Ingredients

Once you have gathered the ingredients, the next step is to measure the ingredients. Use equipment like a kitchen scale and a large bowl to take the right proportions of the ingredients in a large bowl. 

Mix Ingredients

Start with mixing bicarbonate of soda and citric acid. After that, carrier oil and fragrance oil should be added to the mixture. In case you are planning to make multi-coloured bath bombs, make sure you have two large bowls for separate mixtures. 

Now, add color to the mixture. Instead of adding a color quickly, add in drops. Mix it quickly to avoid fizz. Once you get the desired shade, add water to the mixture. Ensure it doesn’t get too much water. It needs to be a mixture that holds together. 

Fill the Mixture into Molds

Compress the mixture and fill it into the molds. If you are using a bath bomb making kit that includes two-part spherical molds, then overfill the molds and press them together. After that, leave the molds to dry for a few hours. 

Remove the Molds

Remove the bath bombs from the molds carefully. You can leave them for a few hours before storing them in a dry jar. Now, the bath bombs are ready to be used. Add one of them to your bathtub and enjoy a relaxing bath.  

Final Words 

Buying colorful, scented bath bombs can be expensive. You can make these bath luxuries at home using some easy-to-find ingredients and the right recipe. Buy a lush bath bomb kit and follow all the necessary steps of making bath bombs, and get fizzy treats with the desired scent.
