DIY Sprinkle Doughnut Bath Bombs
Recipe type: Bath Bombs
Serves: 6 bath bombs
These bath bombs look just like pink doughnuts with sprinkles!
  • Doughnut Half Mold
  • 1 cup Baking Soda
  • ½ cup Citric Acid
  • .5 oz. Coconut Oil
  • 6 mL Strawberry Fragrance Oil
  • 5-6 drops Rosy Pink La Bomb Colorant
  • Fine Iridescent Glitter
  • Witch Hazel in Spray Bottle
  • Droppers
  • Optional: 2 mL Polysorbate 80
  • Yellow Lip Safe Mica
  • Magenta Mica
  • Super Pearly White
  • Shamrock Green Mica
  • Blue Mica – Cellini Lip Safe Mica
  • 99% Isopropyl Alcohol
  1. In a large bowl, mix together the baking soda and citric acid. If there are any clumps in the mixture, you can push the powder through a sifter or break up the clumps with your fingers. Citric acid has a tendency to take off nail polish, so wear gloves to protect your manicure.
  2. Add the melted coconut oil, Strawberry Fragrance Oil, Polysorbate 80 and Rosy Pink La Bomb Colorant. Mix all the ingredients together, until fully combined. I have found it's best to use your hands for this step!
  3. Once the ingredients are fully mixed and there are no clumps of colorant or oil, add the Fine Iridescent Glitter and mix in.
  4. Begin spritzing with witch hazel, while mixing with your hands or a spatula. Continue spritzing until the mixture is a texture that holds its shape when squeezed.
  5. Fill each container with the bath fizzy mixture, pressing the mixture down to make sure it's packed tight in the mold. Make sure to leave the middle of the mold clean so there is a hole in the doughnut shape!
  6. Allow the bath bombs to harden and dry for several hours, up to overnight.
  7. Once completely hard and dry, remove the bath fizzies from the mold.
  8. Time to paint on the sprinkles! In separate containers, add about ⅛ teaspoon of the Super Pearly White Mica, Yellow Lip Safe Mica, Magenta Mica, Shamrock Mica and Cellini Blue Mica with about ¼ 99% isopropyl alcohol. Stir together to create a "paint." The paint should be thin enough to spread, but also saturated enough to leave a strong color on the fizzy.
  9. Using a fine point paint brush, start painting the sprinkles on the fizzy, cleaning your brush between each color. If you find the "paint" is bleeding on your bath bomb, add a bit more mica to the mixture.
  10. Continue painting on sprinkles until you're happy with the look. Allow them to fully dry for several hours. To use, place in a hot bath and enjoy!
