How to Mold Bath Bombs
If you are using a full circle mold, stuff the mix in, pack it down and then add a heaping amount to the top. Squish the two pieces together until the mold is a sphere again, and leave it for about a minute before you remove it from the mold gently. Drape a towel over a muffin tin and place the bath bomb on top of the towel.
If you are using a half circle mold, pack it in and rest it in a muffin tin, flat side up. If you are using a hard silicone mold (not soft), leave it overnight before attempting to remove. I like the two colored look using half of the ornament mold, so I layered yellow, then white, and topped with a bit of yellow again.

If this is your first time making bath bombs, check out this list for bath bomb supplies. You honestly don’t need a lot and can get everything at the grocery or craft store.
As you can see, I created some full, round bath bombs and others just a half bomb. These are shower fizzies and can be used either in the shower or the bath.
How to Harden Bath Bombs
I put this recipe to the test, just like all of the other 100 or so that I have shared on Ruffles and Rain Boots. I made multiple batches of each and can safely say that this one works best when left in the molds for a full 24 hours.
They aren’t ready for packing at that point. If you are wrapping them, they should be left to dry for at least another 24, but I would suggest 48. This works well for the half ornaments and full round shapes.
Bath bombs are a great gift to give or receive because they always smell so nice and can be used for a mental break. If you (or your gift recipient) isn’t into taking baths, you can do what I do on occasion: change the recipe slightly and learn how to make shower fizzies.

I have named my vanilla and lemon combination, “Sweet Shoppe Lemon Drop,” and created a little wrap to jazz it up a bit. I have included a free printable if you’d like to gift them. Pair it up with a simple bath accessory and you have a sweet, citrus-smelling luxurious gift!
