Description

The formula for bath bombs is pretty simple. A little sodium bicarbonate, a dash of citric acid, a few spritzes of witch hazel – that’s all you need for a good bath bomb. But adding special touches set your recipe apart. These Rose Gold Bath Bombs illustrate what a few simple ingredients can do.

What makes them so special? They contain pink sea salt that is coated in rose gold mica. The shimmery salt gives the bath bombs a lovely pop of color and creates a soothing experience in the bath tub. Polysorbate 80, an emulsifier, helps the mica and coconut oil disperse in the water rather than pooling on top. Finish them off with bright Rose Quartz Fragrance Oil and your bath bombs will show once and for all that lovingly-crafted handmade products are always the best option.

Rose Gold Bath Bomb Project
The formula for bath bombs is pretty simple. A little baking soda, a dash of citric acid, a few spritzes of witch hazel – that’s all you need for a good bath bomb. But adding special touches set your recipe apart. These Rose Gold Bath Bombs illustrate what a few simple ingredients can do.

Difficulty: Beginner
Time: 30 minutes

Yield: about 10 Bath Bombs

 

Ingredients

10 Disk Mold & Packages

2 cups Baking Soda (Sodium Bicarbonate)

1 cup Citric Acid

1 cup Extra Small Pink Sea Salt

3 oz. Coarse Pink Sea Salt

¼ tsp. Rose Gold Mica

3 oz. Coconut Oil

9 mL Rose Quartz Fragrance Oil

0.3 oz. Polysorbate 80

Dropper

Witch Hazel in Spray Bottle

Instructions

  1. Mix the coarse pink sea salt with Rose Gold Mica. Add a small amount of the salt to the bottom of the bath bomb molds and set aside. TIP: Don't add too much salt to the bottom of the molds, or a large majority of it will fall off when the bath bomb is removed from the mold.
  2. Sift together the baking soda and citric acid. Add the extra small pink sea salt and mix to fully incorporate.
  3. Add the remaining coarse pink sea salt to dry the ingredients. Mix in thoroughly.
  4. Melt the coconut oil in the microwave using 30-60 second bursts. In a separate fragrance oil-safe container, mix together the coconut oil, Rose Quartz Fragrance Oil, and polysorbate 80.
  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry mixture. Use your hands to fully mix together all the ingredients.
  6. The perfect bath bomb texture is similar to damp sand, and holds its shape when squeezed in your hand. To achieve this texture, spritz the mixture with witch hazel with one hand and mix with your other hand. How much witch hazel you add will depend on your climate.
  7. Once it's the correct texture, add the mixture into the bath bomb molds. Press the mixture firmly and use your hands to smooth the back. Fill up each mold and allow the bath bombs to harden for at least 3-4 hours, up to overnight. Remove from the molds and enjoy!
