How to Use our Bath Bomb Maker

We have been working with a small local manufacturer to create these remarkable machines. Our Bath Bomb Maker will allow you to make numerous Bath Bombs in a fraction of the time.

The machine is an investment. If you are just starting out, I would not recommend this¬† product for you. You’ll definitely want to build up your customer base and product line before getting one of these. But if you have been making and selling Bath Bombs and are ready to expand production – this is the tool for you! The ingredients for making Bath Bombs are very inexpensive and yet they can sell for $3 – $7 each. Since the profit margin for Bath Fizzies is aggressive and much of the cost ends up being in the actual labor of producing a bath fizzy, it can make sense to invest in a machine like this.

In this video I show how easy it is to use the Bath Bomb Maker. The key is to get your mixture just the right consistency. I have found that it needs to be a little wetter than the mix would be if I were packing the Bath Bombs by hand. The great thing is – if the first bath bomb doesn’t come out you, just dump it back in the bowl and try again! I won’t lie; the first time I tried the machine, I got frusterated. The mixture needed to be wetter than if I was making bath fizzies by hand. I couldn’t figure out how high to fill the little tube. And my bombs kept splitting. After a solid 20 minutes of experimenting, I was able to get the consistency right, the fill levels perfect and since then, I haven’t had an issue. I know just what my go-to recipe and technique is – and I share it below.

  5. Edwina Morgan says:

    I made bath fizz and fails horribly in pieces. What happen when after few days it did turn balls like it supposed to. On the same batch that crashed can I do all over again? Is this going to be a waste? This is my second time. Still new to all this things. I would love to get it right but for some reason it did not work with me right now. Please I am desperately needed help!
    I would love to hear from you soon. I making this as a gift for christmas.

    • Good morning, Edwina!

      Sometimes if you add an ingredient that is water-based it will cause the bath bombs to prematurely fizz and fall apart. Is is humid in your area? Sometimes the humidity in the air can actually cause funny things to happen with your mixture as well. Could you tell me a bit more about your recipe? :)

    Could i leave out the kaolin clay? what is it for in this recipe? thanks!

    • Good morning, Hannah!

      We added the Kaolin Clay to our bath bomb recipe because it’s a perfect skin-loving ingredient that is great for sensitive skin and gives a nice luxurious slip while in the bath. If you don’t have any Kaolin Clay handy, you can totally leave it out of this recipe.

      -Becky with Bramble Berry

      P.S. In this particular recipe, the Kaolin Clay also helps out with the stability of the bath bomb as well. :)

  7. Karen says:

    Hi, I’m wondering if the Kaolin Clay leaves a ring around the bathtub or is it soluable in the water? Thank you

    • Hi Karen!

      We’ve used Kaolin Clay in a couple of our bath bomb recipes and never had a problem with it leaving a ring around the tub. It tends to be water soluble and give you a nice and luxurious bath-time experience. =)

  8. Isabella says:

    how many ounces of bath bomb does that recipe make? thanks :)

  9. Isabella says:

    can i use some shea butter and french green clay i have on hand? will that be okay? thanks :)

  10. Jake says:


    I think I saw somewhere that adding some other type of oil or additive makes the fizz last longer (protects the baking soda?), I can’t seem to find where I saw this… Any ideas?


  11. maria mulikova says:

    Hi Becky,

    I would like to know how much does cost the machine.

    • Hi Maria!

      Isn’t this a fabulous and fun little recipe? Anne-Marie does such a great job in creating them and we always have so much fun seeing what she has come up with next. The bath bomb machine is $850.00 and is currently out-of-stock at the moment. If you have any questions or would like to purchase it in the future, you can contact customer service at info(at)brambleberry(dot)com and they would be able to get you set up with it. :)

    I live in tropical island. Since making bath bomb is sensitive with moist. do you have any suggestion how i can make bath bomb in hawaii?

    thank you


    • Good morning, Shinil!

      We are so excited you are making bath bombs and can’t wait to see how they turn out. The best suggestion I have for you is to make sure you are working a room that is as cool and dry as possible. You could even run a dehumidifier to help pull the moisture out of the air. I also would suggest not to add too much witch hazel and only use enough to bind the mixture together. I hope this helps! Keep us updated on how your bath bombs turn out. =)

      Happy Bath Bomb Making!

  13. Hi Brambleberry:)) Just wanted to know If I used your recipe for your amazing bath bombs how much slsa would I add to your bath bomb recipe amount? Thank you:))

  14. says:

    love love love your ideas…. I am constantly experimenting on the “perfect” receipe, but there is not one perfect receipe, they all have their pros and cons. I love adding some powdered milk or some seasalt, sometimes I take some tea leaves or citrus peel add it to the dough. and food coloring, since all the fancy lab colors are nowhere to be found here in germany.
    the machine looks nice but the handcrafting is part of the fun. I have some plastic round molds at hand in different sizes and they do the trick even if I have to replace them often…
    keep fizzing please

    • Amanda says:

      Hi there!

      So glad you’re enjoying the blog! I love the idea of adding citrus leaves! Very clever :). I totally agree, this machine is a blast but doing it by hand is fun too! If you ever get pictures of your fizzies, I would love to see some pictures on our Facebook page!

    Hi there!
    I do love all what you do!
    I add essential oils in mine (lavender, eucalyptus+pine+mint, sweet orange+grapefruit seeds+lemon) and they smell good once in hot water, but very quickly, the smell fades and it smells nothing anymore…any idea for having a longer lasting smell?

    • Kelsey says:

      Hi Killraven!

      That sounds like an awesome combination! I would recommend adding a little more fragrance – about 1 tsp. or more – to your bath bombs. That should help the smell last longer. :)
