Get creative and make some sassy starfish bath bombs!

Making a Bath Bomb 9

This is what you’ll need to make 12-24 bath bombs.


Baking Soda – 2 cups

Citric Acid – 1 cup

Corn Starch – 1 cup

Almond Oil – 3 tsp.

Essential Oil – 1 tsp. – try Sandalwood or Lavender! {More info about my favorite essential oils at the bottom}

Food Coloring – 8-10 drops

Rubbing Alcohol in a spray bottle

Soap molds or ice cube trays

I use all quality essential oils for my bath bombs and bath salts.  You use less with these high quality oils and there are health benefits at the same time!  Try Lavender, Lemon and Peppermint together to help with the symptoms of seasonal allergies.  Email me if you have any questions about oils and I’ll be happy to help you.

I love using individual soap molds, quirky ice cube trays or even vintage tart tins.  Practice with what you have and see which molds work best for you.

The possibilities are endless and once you start making them you’ll come up with a ton of new ideas to try. Make extra and save them for birthdays and holidays.  This is one of those handmade gifts that everyone loves…trust me!

Have fun!

    I love these! I will have to try making my own bath bombs again. I had a bad experience trying to make them last year but I think I have built the courage to try again. Will try your recipe this time. Thanks for sharing!

    Hi Kim.
    Just made some bath bombs last weekend for the first time and it was a success! I didn’t use any cornstarch and didn’t spray them with alcohol as it wasn’t mentioned in the recipe I had. What are the benefits of using these?
    Thank you.
