Bath Bomb Recipe

If you are looking for another bath bomb recipe to add to your collection, here is one from Herbal Accents:


1/2 cup baking soda
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup citric acid
1 teaspoon deodorized cocoa butter, melted
2 teaspoons of scent of your choice, essential oil or fragrance oil
1 tablespoon distilled water
colorant, if desired

Mix the baking soda, cornstarch and citric acid together in glass or stainless steel bowl. Make "well" in the middle and drizzle melted cocoa butter and scent. Blend well. Add a few drops of desired colorant to your distilled water and add to your other ingredients. It will fizz a little. If it fizzes too much, use less water next time. Pack firmly into soap mold. The more compact you do this the better your bomb will be. Turn out onto wax paper or plastic wrap. Let dry and harden. After a few hours, package. Keep from getting damp again. The bombs will fizz when added to your bath.

The new Molds we now carry are perfect for the bombs. Go to our Soap Mold link to see pictures. The molds are 3 to 4 cavity and sell for $5.00 each.

Here at our shop we shrink wrap our bath bombs in our 6 x 4 shrink bags. The bombs stay together very well. Our 6"x4" PVC shrink bags can be purchased from us. 100 bags are $2.50, 500 bags are $10.00 and 1,000 bags are $18.00. We now carry impulse sealers to seal the bags. Go to our packaging page or see our downloadable catalog.
