Christmas Bath Bomb Ingredients

Supplies you will need to make the homemade bath bombs:

●  1 1/2 cup baking soda

●  3/4 cup citric acid

●  1 tbsp bentonite clay

●  1 tbsp Epsom salts

●  2 tbsp melted coconut oil

●  1/2 tsp essential oil blend desired (or mint extract, since that’s what I wanted)

●  1/2 tbsp polysorbate 80 (to keep the colorant from sticking to the bathtub)

●  1 tsp red mica powder

●  1 tsp green mica powder

●  2-4 tablespoons Ugly Christmas sweater sprinkles blend

●  1/2 tsp alcohol (to wet the mixture if necessary at the end of the mixing if it dries out while putting the mixture into the molds)

●  1/2 tsp cornstarch

●  4-5 bath bomb molds

Bath Bomb Molds

What are the best bath bomb molds to use for this project? I purchased the bath bomb molds that I used for this project from Amazon and they are very reasonably priced. These bath bomb molds work well for any DIY bath bombs that are round, but in some of the bath bomb recipes that I make, I get creative and use different shapes of bath bomb molds such as in these Succulent Bath Bombs or these creative and fun Mermaid Bath Bombs.

Making homemade bath bombs

Whisk together the baking soda, citric acid, clay, and Epsom salts in a bowl and mix together.

In a second bowl, combine the melted coconut oil, essential oil blend of your choice, and polysorbate 80 together, mixing well.

Add liquid ingredients 1 tsp at a time to the dry ingredients, mixing them together slowly so as not to start the fizzy reaction. Slowly would be the key!

Split the mixture into two separate bowls with 2⁄3 in one bowl and 1⁄3 in the second bowl. Then add the red mica powder to the bowl with the larger portion of the bath bomb mixture and stir until the color is consistent throughout.

If you would like a more intense color, add more mica powder in 1 tsp increments, stirring between each increment until you have a dark color. Keep in mind that the color will fade a little when the mixture dries.

Repeat with the second portion of the bath bomb mixture and the green mica powder.

Christmas bath bombs with ugly sweater sprinkles

Dust the bottom of one side of the bath bomb mold with cornstarch. The sprinkle side tends to come out on its own, so do not bother to dust that side with cornstarch.

Place about 1 tsp of sprinkles in the non-dusted side of the bath bomb mold.

Immediately pack each side of the bath bomb mold with the red bath bomb mixture about 2⁄3 full. Pack green bath bomb mixture on top of each bath bomb mixture, overfilling them.

Press the two sides together, grinding and pressing them to force the two together.

Allow the bath bombs to rest in the mold for up to 24 hours before gently tapping the top and side of the mold to release the bombs.
