Jagua Blue Extract Bath Bomb DIY
Recipe type: Bath Bombs
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 13 bath bombs
  • About 13 Disk Mold & Packages
  • Pink Sea Salt, Medium
  • 32 oz. Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda)
  • 16 oz. Citric Acid
  • 0.5 oz. Pacific Pearl Fragrance Oil
  • ⅛ tsp. Jagua Blue Extract
  • ½ – 1 Tbsp. Witch Hazel
  • Optional: Witch Hazel in a Spray Bottle
  1. Lay out 13 Disk Molds and place a small amount of pink sea salt into the center of each one. Set the molds aside.
  2. In a large bowl, add 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. Add 0.5 oz. of Pacific Pearl Fragrance Oil and stir to fully incorporate.
  3. In a small container, mix ⅛ teaspoon of jagua blue extract and ½ tablespoon of witch hazel. Use the back of a spoon to break up any chunks in the extract. Add another ½ tablespoon of witch hazel if necessary. Note: Be very careful with this mixture, it will stain your skin and other porous surfaces.
  4. Add about ⅓ of the jagua blue powder mixture into the dry ingredients and use your hands to mix together. Continue adding splashes of the jagua blue until all of it is added, mixing between each addition. You may find that adding that much liquid at once causes your mixture to fizz – this is fine, just mix very quickly.
  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. We found the witch hazel in the jagua blue extract mixture was enough, and we didn’t add more witch hazel. Note: We found the jagua blue extract gave the mixture a slightly “sticky” texture – notice in the photo how it stuck to our gloves. We’re not quite sure why this happens, but don’t be alarmed if your mixture also has a slightly strange texture.
  6. Begin filling each mold to the inner lip. Firmly compact the mixture into the mold to create a solid shape. 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.
