Scented with coconut Epsom salts and made with a bath bomb mixture these take just minutes to prepare. The patience comes in waiting for them to dry!
I filled each bath bomb with a cute bunny eraser, but you can add whatever you’d like. It just needs to be small.
Bath Bomb Ingredients
I used a bath bomb base from Darice for these bath bombs. What is a bath bomb base? It contains two packages; a package that is a mixture of dry powder ingredients, and a package of citric acid. If you’d like to make these by scratch you can use my bath bomb recipe.
The bath bomb base package comes with enough mixture to make A LOT of bath bombs. I’ve made 16 so far and only used about half of my ingredients.

Tips and Troubleshooting for Successfully Making Bath Bombs
Why are my bath bombs bumpy? Why are my bath bombs bubbling and soft?
The biggest factor in making bath bombs is to take care not to add excess moisture. The whole point of bath bombs are to react with water and fizz. You want them to do this, but only when added to a tub of water. If you add too much water to your mixture, they will fizz up and won’t harden properly, but you need moisture to help the bath bombs mold to the soap mold. Add water slowly using a spray bottle, 1-2 spritzes at a time is all you need. Quickly whisk the water into your mixture. You can also use rubbing alcohol in place of water. Only adding a tiny bit at a time and whisking after each addition until the mixture feels like slightly damp sand.
Moisture in the air can affect bath bombs from properly drying. Humidity is not your friend when making these.
What if my bath bombs crack?
On the flip side, of your bath bombs crack right away and don’t form to the mold then they need more moisture. It’s a balance of finding what works for you, your ingredients and your environment. If this is your first time making them, plan to make a couple of batches before getting it just right.
