Butterfly Sparkle Surprise Bath Bomb
Recipe type: Bath bomb
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: About 4 bath bombs
With a secret stash of glitter and a butterfly eraser inside, these bath bombs are perfect for kids!
  • 3 cups Sodium Bicarbonate (baking soda)
  • 1.5 cups Citric Acid
  • 2 Tbs. Chia Seed Oil
  • 2 mL Daisy Yellow LaBomb Colorant
  • Iridescent Glitter
  • 6 mL Crisp Apple Rose Fragrance Oil
  • 4 mL Pure Honey Fragrance Oil
  • Butterfly Erasers
  • Witch Hazel
  • Stainless Steel Bath Bomb Mold
  • Optional: Droppers
  1. To aid in the unmolding of the bath bombs, add 5-10 drops of cyclomethicone inside each half of the Stainless Steel Bath Bomb molds. Swirl it around so that there is a nice coat covering the inside of the molds. Set the molds on paper towels in a way that allows the excess cyclomethicone to run out. You want just the thinnest coat of cyclomethicone inside the molds.
  2. In a large bowl, combine sodium bicarbonate and citric acid. Use your hands or a mesh strainer to remove any clumps.
  3. Once the mixture is smooth, add the chia seed oil. Use your hands to fully incorporate the oil into the powder.
  4. Add 2 mL of Daisy Yellow LaBomb Colorant and use your hands to mix it in fully.
  5. Add 6 mL of Crisp Apple Rose Fragrance Oil and 4 mL of Pure Honey Fragrance Oil and mix well.
  6. Check the moisture level of your fizzies. The mixture should be wet enough so when you squeeze the powder in your palm it will stick together. If it doesn’t hold its shape, spritz with witch hazel. You want to spray enough so that the powders stick together and aren’t crumbly. Be careful though, because spraying too much can cause the mixture to fizz prematurely and ruin your fizzies. How much witch hazel you use depends on a number of factors, including the humidity in your area. We used about 10-12 spritzes of witch hazel.
  7. Fill up one half of the mold with the mixture, leaving space at the top. Make sure to press the mixture in to make it compact as possible. Add ¼ tsp. of glitter and one butterfly eraser.
  8. Scoop more of the mixture on top until it’s mounded in the center. Fill up the second half of the bath bomb, mounding the mixture in the center again.
  9. Press the two sides of the mold together firmly. Then, slowly remove the top half of the bath bomb mold. Let the bath bomb sit in the bottom half of the mold for 10 minutes or up to an hour. It can be a little tricky to get the fizzies to stick together…but practice makes perfect! If they do not stick together the first time, you can try again a few times if they begin to crumble.
  10. Slowly remove the bottom half of the mold and set the bath bomb aside.
  11. Repeat the process with the other bath bombs. When they’re unmolded, allow them to sit for 24 hours before using or wrapping in plastic wrap to protect them from excess moisture.
  12. To use, drop the bomb in your bath tub and watch it fizz! Because these bath bombs have oil in them, they can make your tub slippery. Be careful when exiting your bath tub!
