Aurora Bath Bombs
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, I give credit where credit is due. Frankly, Sleeping Beauty is the best power-napper ever. I can’t tell you how jealous I am of the nap-potential on that one. While making a bunch of Disney bath bombs for the little one, I thought: “Let’s do one for the naps.” Roll with me here.
Sleeping Beauty bath bombs are the best because you’re getting the kids in bed after their bath. Everyone wins there. Everyone. Let’s get started.

Tips to Make Sleeping Beauty DIY Bath Bombs
- Do not use food coloring for your Sleeping Beauty bath bombs. It will make your bath bombs bright but it could stain your tub.
- You can mold this recipe in any flat-backed design so they will be safe for use as Princess Aurora shower fizzies, too.
- You can use any scents, any brand of oils, and any mica colors – there are no limits.
- If your bombs crumble, see this article on trouble-shooting bath bombs and shower fizzies to find out your options to remake them.
- There is an ingredient which is optional, Polysorbate 80. The purpose of this emulsifier is to limit the oils and butters from pooling at the top of the water, as well as to reduce mica from adhering to the walls of the tub.
- If you want to use your Aurora bath bombs immediately, go for it. But if you’d like the fizz to be more powerful, let these dry for at least 24 hours to get the most fizz for your bath. Plus, if there’s a little mix-up in your mix, drying them will usually work that out.
- To keep your bath bombs at top-peak-fizzy-potential, keep them in an air-tight container.
How Do I Make these Aurora Bath Bombs?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial. If you’re making a Disney bath bombs playlist on YouTube, here is our Princess Aurora bath bombs video tutorial.
- 2 cups baking soda
- 1/2 cup citric acid
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 1/4 cup Epsom salts, fine grain works best
- 1/4 cup white kaolin clay
- 1/3 cup coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon polysorbate 80, optional
- 10-20 drops of geranium essential oil
- 10-20 drops of myrrh essential oil
- Fuchsia mica powder
- Rose mica powder
- Light pink mica powder
- Pink cosmetic glitter
- Stainless steel bath bomb molds
- Spray bottle filled with rubbing alcohol
- 1 large mixing bowl
- 3 small bowls
- In a large mixing bowl, add the baking soda, citric acid, Epsom salts, white kaolin clay and cornstarch. Whisk dry ingredients together.
- Add the geranium and myrrh essential oils to the coconut oil.
- Add the coconut oil to the dry ingredients. This binds all the ingredients together, so you bath bombs don’t crumble when you touch them!
- Add the polysorbate 80. This helps the coconut oil disperse more evenly in your bath water, makes the bath bombs bubbly and prevents the mica from sticking to the side of the tub.
- Mix the ingredients together. I use my hands to break down any lumps and make sure everything is really mixed in there. The mixture is perfect when it holds together when you press it into your hands and feels like wet sand. Separate mixture into 3 small bowls.
- Add 1 tablespoon of the fuchsia mica and pink cosmetic glitter into one of the small bowls. Add a bit more color if the mixture is too light. Continue to add a bit and mix until you get the color you want.
- Add the rose mica and pink cosmetic glitter into the 2nd small Add a bit more color if the mixture is too light. Continue to add a bit and mix until you get the color you want.
- Add the light pink mica and pink cosmetic glitter into the 3rd small bowl. Add a bit more color if the mixture is too light.
- Mix each bowl until color is well blended into the bath bomb mixture.
- Layer the colors into each side of the bath bomb mold.
- Press both sides of the mold together firmly, grinding together to get rid of the excess mixture.
