Description

For this project, the first step is making the base with the Bath Bomb Mold and Package. Once the bath bombs have dried overnight, they’re unmolded and painted with a mixture of mica and 99% isopropyl alcohol. We recommend paint brushes with a small point for precision. The design does take a steady hand and some patience, but it’s a relaxing process. It’s also a great project to do with friends, family, and kids. 

The bath bombs are scented with Lingonberry Spice Fragrance Oil, which is a mix of apple, frozen berry, clove, and musk. It’s sure to be your new favorite scent for the holidays and beyond.

Lignonberry Bath Bombs Project
These bath bombs are made with skin-loving lingonberry seed oil and Lingonberry Spice Fragrance Oil. They're perfectly festive and gift-worthy.

Ingredients

About 13 Bath Bomb Mold & Packages
32 oz. Baking Soda (Sodium Bicarbonate)
16 oz. Citric Acid
1 oz. Lingonberry Seed Oil
0.5 oz. Polysorbate 80
9 mL Lingonberry Spice Fragrance Oil
Red Mica
Evergreen Mica
Super Pearly White Mica
99% Isopropyl Alcohol
Witch Hazel in a Spray Bottle

Instructions

1 In a large container, mix together 32 ounces of baking soda and 16 ounces of citric acid. To get rid of clumps, you can push the powder through a sifter or break them up with your fingers. Citric acid has a tendency to take off nail polish, so wear gloves to protect your manicure.
2

Add 1 ounce of lingonberry seed oil, 0.5 ounces of polysorbate 80, and 9 mL of Lingonberry Spice Fragrance Oil.

Use your hands to thoroughly mix in the wet ingredients.

4

Test the consistency of the bath bomb mixture. It should feel similar to wet sand and holds its shape when squeezed. If it’s too dry, use one hand to spritz the mixture with witch hazel and one to mix.

5

Fill the 2 halves of the molds, gently pressing the bath bomb mixture in each so they hold their shape. Mound a little extra in the center of each half of the molds. Wipe away any powder in the seams of the mold, match the eyelets, and press together. Make sure to direct pressure to the edges of the mold rather than the center to prevent dents.

6

Allow the bath bombs to harden in the mold for at least 24 hours and then remove. If they're still soft, let them completely harden a few more hours.

7

In 3 small separate containers, mix about 1/2 teaspoon of Red Mica, 1/2 teaspoon of Evergreen Mica, and 1/2 teaspoon of Super Pearly White Mica with about 1/2 tablespoon of 99% isopropyl alcohol. Mix until smooth. Test the consistency on a paper towel or piece of paper. If you want a more saturated color, add a touch more mica. If you want a less saturated color, add more 99% isopropyl alcohol.

8

Using a small paint brush, create 3 circles in the center of the bath bomb with the Red Mica.

9

Paint a leaf with the Evergreen Mica.

10

Finally, add small dots on the berries and lines on the leaves. This step really makes the design pop.

continue painting

11

Allow the bath bombs to fully dry. When you’re ready to use, drop them into a hot bath and enjoy. If you’re giving them as gifts, place them back into their mold – it doubles as packaging!
