Description

These bath bombs are all about sparkle, shimmer, and glimmer! King's Gold Mica is added to the mixture, then it's rolled in Snowflake Sparkle Mica. Finally, more mica is drizzled on top. They are scented with Gold Glimmer Fragrance Oil, which has notes of orange blossom, peony, and amber. 

A touch of champagne extract is added to help the bath bombs hold their shape when molding, and to add moisture to the bath water. Any oil-based extract will work great, or you can use a lightweight liquid oil. Polysorbate 80 helps the oil and mica disperse in the bath water.

Gold Glimmer Bath Bomb Project
These sparkly bath bombs are scented with Gold Glimmer Fragrance Oil, which has notes of peony, orange blossom, and amber.

Gold Glimmer Bath Bombs | Bramble Berry

Ingredients

About 13 Bath Bomb Molds
32 oz. Baking Soda (Sodium Bicarbonate)
16 oz. Citric Acid
1 oz. Champagne Extract
0.5 oz. Polysorbate 80
9 mL Gold Glimmer Fragrance Oil
King's Gold Mica
Snowflake Sparkle Mica
Witch Hazel in a Spray Bottle
99% Isopropyl Alcohol 
Dropper

Instructions.

1

In a large bowl, mix together 32 ounces of baking soda and 16 ounces of citric acid. To get rid of clumps in the mixture, you can push the powders through a sifter or break them up with your fingers. Add 1 teaspoon of King's Gold Mica and stir. Note: Citric acid has a tendency to take off nail polish, so wear gloves to protect your manicure.

2

In a small container, add 1 ounce of champagne extract, 0.5 ounces of polysorbate and 9 mL of Gold Glimmer Fragrance Oil. Stir together. 

3

Add the liquids to the baking soda and citric acid. Use your hands to thoroughly mix all the ingredients together until there are no clumps. 

4

Test the consistency of the bath bomb mixture. It should feel like wet sand and hold its shape when squeezed. If it’s too dry, use one hand to spritz the mixture with witch hazel and one to mix. Below, you can see that the mixture forms a ball when squeezed. This means it will hold its shape in the mold as well.

5

Fill the two halves of the mold, gently pressing the bath bomb mixture in each so they hold their shape. Mound a little extra powder in the center of each half of the mold. Wipe away any powder from the seams of the mold, match the eyelets of each side up, and press together. To avoid any imperfections on your bath bomb, make sure to direct pressure to the edges of the mold rather than the center. Continue filling up the bath bomb molds until the mixture is gone.

6

Allow the bath bombs to harden in the mold for 24 hours. Then, carefully remove them from the package.

Fill a bowl with a few tablespoons of Snowflake Sparkle Mica. The following steps can get a little messy, so you may want to lay down newspaper on your surface. Gently roll the bath bomb in the mica until completely covered. Use your fingers to spread it evenly and brush off any extra.

In separate containers, mix 1 teaspoon of King's Gold Mica and 1 teaspoon of Snowflake Sparkle Mica with 1 tablespoon of 99% isopropyl alcohol. Use a dropper to drizzle the mica on top of the bath bombs. Continue until you're happy with the look. Let the bath bombs dry for about 30 minutes. Then, place them back into the packaging. To use, place the bath bomb into a hot bath and enjoy!
