Make your own bath bombs with this fun and easy kit! This kit includes the mold, ingredients, colors, and fragrance you need to make bath bombs. All you need to do is mix the ingredients and use a binding agent such as witch hazel to make the mixture stick together. This kit includes detailed instructions that explain every step of the process.
Choose from a selection of 10 popular bath bomb molds! You will receive one reusable plastic mold with your kit. If you want more information on a mold, please view the product listing for the mold you are interested in.
The bath bomb kit includes most of the supplies you need for this project. You will need to have a few basic items from home to complete this project. Please review the lists below:
- Instruction sheet
- Bath Bomb Mix - Enough to make 3 items.
- 1 bath bomb mold
- 1 oz of fragrance oil
- 3 1g jars of mica powder
- 3 micro scoops
- 3 mixing cups for mica
- Spray bottle
- Plastic pipette
- Paint brush
- Nitrile gloves
- Face mask
Supplies You Need from Home
- Liquid binding agent*
- Medium to Large mixing bowl
A binding agent is a liquid that you use to hold the dry ingredients together. Kit instructions provide a detailed explanation of liquid binding agents you can use. We recommend witch hazel, which is available at most drug stores.
Optional Supplies (Not Included)
- Approx 2 ml of Sweet Almond Oil, Coconut Oil, or Apricot Kernel Oil
- 1-2 ml of Polysorbate 80 (recommended if using a lot of mica powder)
Oils such as these are used to provide more skin hydration when the bath bomb is used. Oils can also make the bath bomb mixture easier to mold/unmold. It is up to you if you want to use these ingredients.
Polysorbate 80 is an emulsifier that helps oils mix with water. It also helps disperse colors in bath water. If you are using a lot of mica powder, we recommend using polysorbate 80 to prevent staining to your tub.
Each kit comes with a fragrance oil and a set of three mica colors that coordinate with the mold design. Here are the colors and scents you will receive with the different kits:
|Cloud||Super Sparkle, Iridescent Blue, Sky Blue||Ozonic|
|Flower||Fuchsia, Eggplant, Iridescent Purple||Sugared Peony|
|Monkey||Auburn Brown, Bronze, Tan||Monkey Farts|
|Ice Cream Cone||Rose Red, Yellow, Wheat||Ice Cream Party|
|Rainbow||Scarlet Red, Hawaiian Blue, Yellow*
|Duck||Sparkle Yellow, Orange, Light Yellow||Smiley Face|
|Sugar Skull||Orange, Pure Black, Teal Blue||Harvest Moon|
|Palm Tree||Shimmer Blue, Green Yellow, Bronze||Sea Salt & Coconut|
|Santa||Scarlet Red, Sea Green, Moss Green
||Fraser Fir & Citrus|
|Big Willie||Grape, Magenta, Pink|| The Gentleman
*Primary colors can be mixed to create all colors of the rainbow.
The fragrance oil and mica colors are pre-selected for each mold. As the kits are pre-assembled, we cannot substitute different colors or fragrances. If you wish to have specific colors, or want to use more than three colors of mica, you may purchase additional mica separately. Additional skin-safe fragrances can also be purchased separately.
Note: If you already have some of our fragrance oils, you can use these instead of the one that comes with the kit. Please use only skin-safe fragrance oils. Check the IFRA information available on our product pages to see if a fragrance is skin-safe.
