Tired of store-bought bath bombs with their harsh chemicals and artificial fragrances? It's time to take your bath time to the next level and make your own luxurious bath bombs with pure, natural ingredients. It's surprisingly easy, and you get the satisfaction of knowing exactly what goes into your pampering soak.

Why Make Your Own Bath Bombs?

  • Control the ingredients: You choose exactly what goes inside, ensuring a natural experience.

  • Customize the experience: Experiment with different essential oils, natural colors, and soothing additions like dried flower petals.

  • Fun & satisfying DIY project: It's easy for beginners and a great way to indulge your love of natural beauty products.

Ingredient Spotlight

  • Baking soda & citric acid: The foundation of fizzy bath bombs!

  • Corn starch: Provides a silky smooth texture.

  • Sea salt or Himalayan salt: Rich in minerals for skin softening.

  • Coconut oil: A natural moisturizer for your skin.

  • Essential oils: Choose your favorites for aromatherapy benefits (lavender for relaxation, bergamot for de-stressing).



  • 1 tablespoon

  • 1 teaspoon

  • 1 mixing bowl

  • 1 ice cube tray silicone mold (firm type)


  • 1 tablespoon citric acid

  • 2 tablespoon baking soda

  • 1 tablespoon of corn starch

  • 1 tablespoon of a sea salt or Himalayan pink salt

  • 1 small teaspoon of coconut oil

  • 1 - 2 teaspoons of rubbing alcohol

  • Half teaspoon of your favourite essential oil (I used lavender and bergamot)


  1. Combine the dry ingredients: In your mixing bowl, combine baking soda, citric acid, cornstarch, and salt.

  2. Melt coconut oil: Melt the coconut oil gently (a short burst in the microwave will do).

  3. Add the wet ingredients: Add melted coconut oil, essential oil(s), and rubbing alcohol to the dry mixture. Start with 1 tsp of alcohol, and add a little more if needed until the mixture holds together when pressed.

  4. Mold your bombs: wet the mixture with the rubbing alohol if it is too dry. This will help to unmould and 100% of alcohol will evaporate afterwards. Press the mixture firmly into your mold. You can buy Bath bomb moulds or simply use your ice cubes mould.

  5. Let dry: Leave for about a day to harden and fully dry.

  6. Enjoy! Pop one out and drop it into your warm bath for fizzy, skin-loving relaxation.

The Benefits of Natural Bath Bombs
