Easy DIY Bath Bombs



Make homemade bath products as gifts for friends and loved ones! These easy DIY bath bombs from Maria Williamson are simple and thrifty gifts.

 Easy DIY Bath Bombs


  • 1/2 cup Cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup Citric acid (any soap supply or craft store should have this)
  • 1 cup Baking soda
  • 2 tsp Shea Butter (any soap supply or craft store should have this)
  • 1 tsp water
  • Measuring spoons
  • Measuring cups
  • Bowl
  • Mold (can be anything really, use your imagination. I use Christmas tree balls from the craft store)


  • 2-4 tsp essential oil or fragrance oil (be sure it is for use on skin, not the stuff for potpourri burners)
  • Food color or liquid soap color

Easy DIY Bath Bombs


  1. Mix Baking soda, Cornstarch and Citric acid together. Slowly drizzle melted Shea butter (can be melted in the microwave) and Fragrance oil in the middle of the mixture and blend well. Add water and soap safe dye or food color. (The mix will fizz a little, this is ok.) Blend Well. It will look like this:

  2. Now you will knead your mix and mold.

  3. You will want to scoop up a lot of the mix like so in each half. You will have some mix left over, you can actually let it dry and then use for a fizzing bath powder.

  4. Then squish them together like so, it will release easier if you tap one side before trying to unmold. This part will take practice.

  5. Set them on wax paper to dry overnight and there you have it. Drop one or two in a tub of running water and enjoy.

I live in a tiny Northern Canadian community. Can anyone give me mail order sites for supplies please? Specifically Citric acid, coloring and oils suitable for skin. I saw instructions for cupcake bombs too and would love to try them.

the measrements are given under "materials". but it didn't say how many it made unless i missed it! i know it's dependant on the mold. but how many did u get using the Christmas balls? these would make nice favors for our teacher & staff lucnch in Feb. We are having pizza and heart shaped sugar cookies and i hope to find some one to do choc. covered strawberries!!! i have a very nice bath set to give as a door prize. all it needs is some soaps and things and this looks like a great place to find some homemade things to add! thanks!

@auntiehoney 1798307, Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We have updated the materials list to include measurements required for each item. We apologize for any inconvenience, --editor of FaveCrafts

How much of what is needed? I'm pretty sure this is an essential piece of information in order for this to come out correctly.

No quantities for any of the ingredients are given. Since measuring cups and spoons are listed, it would be logical to think a measurement is involved.
