With the summer heat on its way, I have beaches on the brain. If you don’t live close to a body of water, your bathtub is the next best thing. These Beach Ball Bath Bombs bring a little summer fun to the tub. They are created in the Bath Bomb Mold & Package. Once fully hardened, they are decorated to resemble beach balls with various shades of mica “paint.” The paint is created with mica and 99% isopropyl alcohol. The alcohol dries in about 15 minutes, leaving behind the cute beach ball stripes.
I scented these bath bombs with a combination of Flower Child Fragrance Oil and Grapefruit Bellini Fragrance Oil. Flower Child is a unique and sophisticated floral scent with notes of bergamot, amber and jasmine. To lighten it up a bit for summer, I paired it with the bubbly and citrusy Grapefruit Bellini Fragrance Oil. It smells amazing!
When you use micas to color your bath fizzies, they may leave some color on the tub. This will depend on how big your tub is, and can vary depending on the color. For example, if you use Luster Black Mica, you may notice more color on the tub than with a lighter color. I recommend giving your bath a light wipe down before taking a bath so the oil around the tub won’t attract color. This always helps avoid a ring around the tub later on. Also, I like to have a wet rag to wipe off any color right off the tub. It comes off easily that way but don’t use a white wash rag for this. =) You can see how these fizzies looked in a veryyyyyy teeeeeeeeennnnnsy bit water in the video below!
