Make your own Fizzy Bath Bombs

How to make Fizzy Bath Bombs

What you need:

  • 2 tablespoons citric acid 
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch 
  • 1/4 cup baking soda 
  • 1/4 tsp essential oil or fragrance oil 
  • 3-6 drops food color 
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil 
  • 2 bowls 
  • Wax paper

(for larger amounts of fizzy bath bombs, expand the mixture, using the proportions above)



Step 1:

Combine all dry ingredients: Citric acid, baking soda and cornstarch in the bowl.

Step 2:

In a separate bowl mix vegetable oil, fragrance or essential oils and coloring together.

Step 3:

Slowly pour the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients.

Step 4:

Make small (1 inch) balls of the mixture and place them on waxed paper to dry. It takes 24- 48 hours for fizzy bath balls to dry completely. They should be completely dry before storage.

Store bath bombs in a tightly sealed container, away from moisture.

 Try one in the bath!! They make great gifts too!

Additionally you can add in "extras" to your bath bombs.  Any vegetable oil will work in your fizzy bath bombs (jojoba, coconut oil, avocado oil, walnut oil, apricot kernal oil, sweet almond oil etc.) You can also add in Vitamin E also known as Mixed Tocopherols to your oil mixture as a preservative.
