Love Lush brand bath bombs as much as I do?
They’re such a fun and luxurious product for your bath (delightful fragrance and fizz? Yes, please!). Whether you’re making these for yourself or hosting a girl’s night in, these DIY Lush inspired bath bombs will save you money instead of having to dish out $8 each at Lush. 🙌
Better yet, you can customize colors and fragrances!
DIY Lush Inspired Bath Bombs
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1/2 cup corn starch
- 1/2 cup citric acid
- 1/2 cup Epsom salt
- 1 tablespoon cream of tartar
- 2 and 1/2 Tablespoons coconut oil, melted plus 1 Tablespoon Water
- 8-10 drops essential oils (I used Plant Therapy Peppermint Essential Oil)
- red, yellow, & blue soap dyes
- bath bomb molds (These metal 2.5 inch molds are my favorite and work great!)
- Optional yet Helpful: Small spray bottle with witch hazel or alcohol (to prevent fizzing)
1.) Mix baking soda, corn starch, citric acid, Epsom salt, and cream of tartar.
Note: Cream of tartar is optional, but it’s a hardener I’ve been adding to bath bombs lately.
2.) Mix water and oils together. Slowly incorporate into the dry mixture 1/2 teaspoon at a time and stir well.
3.) The consistency should feel like damp sand. If it’s still too dry, try spraying a little alcohol or witch hazel on it. This helps avoid fizzing.
4.) Separate mixture into three bowls, and mix a few drops of desired coloring into each bowl.
5.) Layer each side of the bath bomb mold with the three separate colors for a fun tie dye effect. Make sure to overfill slightly.
6.) Close the bath bomb sides together, press down, and wait for a couple minutes to set.
7.) Lightly tap on the molds and remove. Let dry overnight.
Enjoy at bath time!
Hip Tip: Save your sanity and use molds like these! I tried some clear plastic ones from Hobby Lobby that were a complete fail for me. I wouldn’t want you to waste your time and money like I did!
