Tips for Making Bath Bombs

To make your own bath bombs for Christmas, we have put together a helpful article with tips on making the perfect bath bomb.

This is a great craft to include the kids in but remember, if they help measure out ingredients, you will need to keep an eye on things. Tween/Teens might be more patient than younger kids, but this will be a fun craft to do together no matter what.

If you are giving these as gifts, please make sure you store the bath bombs in an airtight container to stay fresh. Or otherwise, you need to use the product immediately, which I plan to use a few, myself anyways.

When making these bath bombs, there is a trick for avoiding creating a fizzy reaction before the bath bomb is to be used. To preserve the bath bombs ability to fizz in the tub, make sure that when you are adding liquid ingredients into your bath bomb mix, they are being added one teaspoon at a time into the dry ingredients and then slowly mix together afterward.

Then, once everything is fully mixed, it’s time to pop your bath bombs into their molds. There are two reasons why you will want to dust the bottom of each bath bomb mold with cornstarch when making your own. One is that it will help hold onto the scent from essential oils, and another reason would be because it assists in the hardening process.

Keeping in mind these tips, you are ready to start making your bath bombs!
