Sparkle Power Bath Bomb Tutorial
- Time:15-20 minutes
- Yields:5 Bath Bombs
Here’s a kid-friendly bath bomb tutorial guaranteed to make bath time tons of fun. It’s a spin off of the recent Hidden Color Bath Bomb tutorial, where a secret stash of super concentrated color appears once the bath bomb is activated in water. This time around, instead of color the secret stash is full of glitter! What a fun and unexpected treat for bath time adventures.
1/2 Cup Citric Acid
1/2 Cup Corn Starch
1/2 Cup Coarse Epsom Salt
1.5 Tablespoons Avocado Oil

ONE: Place a wire mesh strainer on top of a bowl. Measure out the Baking Soda, Citric Acid and Corn Starch and pour into the bowl through the strainer. Work the powders through the strainer to remove any clumps. Remove the strainer from the bowl.
TWO: Add the Coarse Epsom Salt to the powders and mix with your hands until combined.
THREE: Add the Avocado Oil to the dry ingredients and mix using your hands until there are no more clumps.
TIP: Wear gloves when mixing if you don’t want to ruin your nail polish!
FOUR: Add the Love Spell Fragrance Oil and mix until well incorporated.
FIVE: Color with Rosy Pink LaBomb, mixing in a few drops at a time until you’re happy with the color. But remember, the more color you add, the more likely it is that the bath fizzy will color the bath water, which may not be your ideal result.

SIX: Spray the mix with Witch Hazel (I used between 10 and 15 sprays). Mix in with your hands until the mixture clumps in your fist.
SEVEN: Fill the first cavity of the Rose Mold about halfway full with bath fizzy mixture. Pack down the mix into the mold, then add 1/8 – 1/4 teaspoon of Iridescent Glitter in a pile in the center. Cover the glitter with enough bath fizzy mix to fill the rest of the mold. Repeat this step with all cavities.
EIGHT: Leave the bath bombs in the molds overnight or until they are hard enough to unmold. These are ready to use right away, or wrap them up and save them for later. Enjoy!
