How to Make DIY Bath Bombs

If you’d like to know how to make bath bombs, this easy DIY tutorial will show you how.

Why waste time or money at the store when you can make your own bath bombs at home, very easy? Get ready to have “a bomb” next time you step in your bathtub.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 cup baking soda

  • 1/2 cup citric acid

  • 1/2 cup Epsom salts

  • 1 tsp. water

  • 2 tsp. essential oil of your choice  (8-10 drops)

  • ½ cup melted coconut oil or 3 tsp. olive oil

  • food coloring (any color you want)

  • bowl

  • whisk

  • jar

  • bath bomb mold (can be any shape)

Step 1

Put all your dry ingredients in a bowl and mix them evenly with your whisk.

Step 2

In a different container, add all your liquid ingredients and mix them together.

 Step 3

Put a small amount of your liquid mixture to your dry ingredients and mix it thoroughly. Mix until all the liquid has been absorbed by your dry ingredients. Continue adding small amounts of the liquid mixture until you’ve used it all up.

Step 4

Now that you’ve mixed all the ingredients together, time to put it in the mold. Put a little more than what your mold can hold on both sides and press them together until it clips. You’d want to put more so your mixture get pressed together making it solid.

Step 5

Once it’s pressed, gently tap it with a spoon to loosen your bath bomb. Let your creation dry for 1-2 days or put in in a freezer for 1 hour if you don't want to wait. And you’re done! 


Wasn’t that fun and easy. You can make it in different colors, sparkles, oils and different shapes. Have fun with it. Mix in different colors in your mold to make a galaxy bath bomb. Another tip, you can also add rose petals so when the bomb explodes, you’ll get a nice flower bath too. How cool is that?!
