Project Description

These bath bombs made with aloe extract and jasmine flowers for a sophisticated and natural look.

Bath bombs create a luxurious bath experience, and they are so easy to make at home. These Lily and Aloe Bath Bombs are accented with jasmine flowers for a sophisticated and natural look.

They're scented with White Lily and Aloe Fragrance Oil, which is a fresh take on a traditional floral scent. It has notes of rosehip tea, lily, blood orange, and green aloe plant. A touch of aloe extract adds skin-loving properties to the recipe. The extract is dispersed in fractionated coconut oil, which has a lightweight consistency. We also added polysorbate 80, which is an emulsifier that helps oil mix into the bath water rather than pooling on top.

Bath Bomb Molds create the classic sphere shape of a bath bomb. They take a little bit of practice, but we think it’s worth it. When filling them, make sure each half is full enough that the two sides stick together. Gently compact the mixture into each side and add a touch of loose powder on top. The loose powder acts like a glue to help the two sides adhere. Let the bath bombs dry and harden overnight before attempting to unmold them. The molds can be used as packaging.

Lily and Aloe Bath Bomb Project

  • Skill Level: Intermediate
  • Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: About 13 bath bombs

The loose powder acts like a glue to help the two sides adhere. Let the bath bombs dry and harden overnight before attempting to unmold them. The molds can be used as packaging.

You will need:

  • About 13 Plastic Bath Bomb Molds
  • 32 oz. Baking Soda
  • 16 oz. Citric Acid
  • 1 oz. Aloe Extract
  • 0.3 oz. Polysorbate 80
  • 0.5 oz. White Lily and Aloe Fragrance Oil 
  • Witch Hazel in a Spray Bottle
  • Jasmine Flowers

Follow these steps:

1

Push 32 ounces of baking soda and 16 ounces pf citric acid through a strainer into a large mixing bowl and use gloved hands or a spoon to mix them.

2

Add 1 ounce of aloe extract, 0.5 ounces of White Lily and Aloe Fragrance Oil, and 0.3 ounces of polysorbate 80. Use your hands to fully incorporate the wet and dry ingredients. 

3

Check 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 use your other hand to mix.

4

Drop a few jasmine flowers into one half of the mold. Add bath bomb mixture and press it in firmly. Fill the other half of the mold. Place loose bath bomb mixture on top of both halves.

5

Clear any powder from the seams of the mold, match the eyelets, and close. Make sure to direct pressure on the seams to prevent dents.

6

Let the bath bombs dry overnight in the mold. To use, drop into a hot bath and enjoy!
