Basic Bath Bomb Recipe

Bath Bombs

Many of you use our Fizzie Bath Powder to create amazing fizzing bath products. Why not use this ready to go powder to make beautiful bath bombs. Our fizzy powder already contains some luxurious oils and leaves bath water feeling silky. You can try this recipe as is, or use our batch calculator to adjust the ratios and customize your own recipe. You can find the calculator here.

What I Used

For this recipe I used our Fizzie Bath Powder because it is a great base to start off with. I added half a percent of Lathanol Powder because it creates a nice luxurious foam without being too harsh on the skin. Adding Poly 80 is optional, however I like including it because it lessens the chance of a tub ring (ring of oil or colorant left behind after the water is drained). Finally, I then added Shea Butter to add extra moisturizing properties to an already luxurious soak.

Steps

  1. First, measure out the fizzy bath powder and lathanol into a large bowl.
  2. Mix well and make sure all lumps are gone
  3. Add your choice of colorant, fragrance, poly 80 and shea butter
  4. Mix well making sure most lumps are gone. Spray the mixture with alcohol while mixing until the consistency holds when pressed. *do this quickly so it does not dry while mixing*
  5. Press into desired mold or with a bath bomb press mold.
  6. Let them dry for 24 hours so they are sturdy and set.

Here is a link for the heart molds we used for these bath bombs. keep in mind not to pack them too much. Because the sides will bow out and they will look strange. And be sure to let them sit for 24 hours before popping them out of the molds so they don’t crumble apart.

In addition, you can easily add glitter, dried rose petals, salts, and many other materials to make them unique. In the picture below, I experimented with various additives. I used dried lavender buds, dried rose petals, ground coffee, and mica applied with a brush and alcohol.
