Description

The new Citrus Silicone Mold is a great option for bath bombs. It's a nice size and the details add a bit of flair. It does require a few extra steps to ensure those details stay intact when they're unmolded, but the end result is definitely worth it.

The recipe is made with pink sea salt and deodorized cocoa butter. They help harden the bath bombs so they unmold easily, and they also feel great on the skin. Then they're painted to add a pop of color and cover up any imperfections.

New Grapefruit Glow Fragrance Oil is the perfect complement for this design - it's a crowd-pleasing mix of mandarin, lily of the valley, and amber.

Pink Grapefruit Bath Bomb Project
This project is the perfect blend of simple and chic. It's made with pink sea salt and new Grapefruit Glow Fragrance Oil.

Ingredients

2 Citrus Silicone Molds
16 oz. Baking Soda
8 oz. Citric Acid
12 oz. Extra Small Pink Sea Salt
1 oz. Lemon Extract
1 oz. Deodorized Cocoa Butter
0.5 oz. Polysorbate 80
0.7 oz. Grapefruit Glow Fragrance Oil
Witch Hazel in a Spray Bottle
Rose Gold Mica
1/2 tsp. Isopropyl Alcohol
1/2 tsp. Super Pearly White Mica

Instructions

1

In a large bowl, mix together 16 ounces of baking soda and 8 ounces of citric acid. To get rid of clumps, you can push the powders 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. Add 12 ounces of pink sea salt and 1/4 teaspoon of Rose Gold Mica. Mix well.

2

In a small heat-safe container, melt 1 ounce of cocoa butter and 1 ounce of lemon extract in the microwave using 30-60 second bursts. Stir in 0.7 ounces of Grapefruit Glow Fragrance Oil and 0.5 ounces of polysorbate 80.

3

Add the oil to the powder. Use your hands to mix together.

4

Test the consistency of the bath bomb mixture. It should feel similar to 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. Note: The salt absorbs moisture, so you may need more witch hazel than usual.

5

Press the bath bomb mixture into both molds. Make sure to press firmly - the more tightly it's packed, the better it will unmold. Note: If you don't want to purchase 2 molds, you can split this recipe in half and make 2 batches.

6

Let the bath bombs harden for a full 24 hours in a cool, dry place. To unmold, pull on the sides of each cavity, flip the mold over, and gently press on the back with the palm of your hand. Don't use your thumbs or the details may break.

7

In a small plastic cup, mix 1/2 teaspoon of Rose Gold Mica, 1/2 teaspoon of Super Pearly White Mica, and 1/2 teaspoon of isopropyl alcohol. Use a fine-detail paint brush to color in the details on top of each bath bomb.

8

Allow the paint to dry for 1-2 hours. It transfers when touched, so handle carefully. To use, place the bath bombs into a hot bath and enjoy!
