DIY Baby's Breath Bath Bombs
Recipe type: Bath Bombs
Serves: 13 bath bombs
These bath bombs will take your mind off the cold temperatures and gray skies.
  • About 13 Disk Mold & Packages
  • Jasmine Flowers
  • 32 oz. Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda)
  • 16 oz. Citric Acid
  • ¼ tsp. Blue Slushy Mica
  • 1 oz. Lotus Flower Extract
  • 0.5 oz. Baby’s Breath Fragrance Oil
  • 0.2 oz. Polysorbate 80
  • Witch Hazel in a Spray Bottle
  1. In a large bowl, mix together 32 ounces of baking soda and 16 ounces of citric acid. To get rid of clumps in the mixture, you can push the powders through a sifter or break them up with your fingers. Citric acid has a tendency to take off nail polish, so wear gloves to protect your manicure. Thoroughly stir the ingredients together.
  2. Add ¼ teaspoon of Blue Slushy Mica. Use your hands to break up the drops and mix them into the powder. The mixture may not look very saturated, but the color will pop once the liquids are added. More color can also be added later.
  3. In a separate container, mix together 1 ounce of lotus flower extract, 0.5 ounces of Baby’s Breath Fragrance Oil, and 0.2 ounces of polysorbate 80. Stir the mixture together with a spoon.
  4. Add the liquid mixture to the dry ingredients and use your hands to thoroughly stir everything together.
  5. Check the consistency of the bath bomb mixture. The perfect consistency is similar to wet sand that holds its shape when squeezed. If it’s too dry, use one hand to spritz the mixture with witch hazel and one to mix. Continue spritzing until the mixture holds its shape when squeezed.
  6. Place jasmine flowers into the bath bomb mold.
  7. Begin filling each mold with the mixture. Firmly compact the mixture into the mold to create a solid shape. Only fill each mold to the inner lip, or the lid will not close. Allow the bath bombs to dry and harden for at least 4 hours or up to overnight. To use, place in a hot bath and enjoy. TIP: To prevent the jasmine flowers from moving to the edges of the mold, place a small amount of bath bomb mixture (just enough to cover the flowers) and press down. Then continue to fill the mold.
