Bath Bombs for Halloween – A Non-Candy Treat
We love creating our own DIY bath bomb recipes here on Ruffles and Rain Boots and these candy corn bath bombs are up next. Sometimes, you make things just for fun – these are those bath bombs.
Look at those colors! Bright, fun, and perfect for a non-candy Halloween treat.
- 2 cups baking soda
- 1 cup citric acid
- 1/2 cornstarch
- 3 tablespoons coconut oil
- Scent(s) of your choice (we used candy corn scent from Amazon)
- orange, yellow, and white pearl mica powder
- 1 tablespoon polysorbate 80 (should be used to disperse oil and color; comes with mica)
- body-safe cosmetic glitter (we used holographic)
- spray bottle with rubbing alcohol
If this is your first time making bath bombs, I’ll let you in on a secret: not all bath bomb molds are created equal. Visit our Bath Bombs Shop on Amazon for our favorite products we use daily.
You’ll also need a few small bowls and one large mixing bowl)
How to Make Fun Candy Corn Bath Bombs
One of the best tips I can give you for making bath bombs is to really get in there and use your hands. I wear disposable gloves and don’t worry about drying out my hands or coloring them.
Another tip is to get a muffin tin and drape a dish towel over it. Once you remove a bath bomb from the mold, place it in a muffin cavity and let it harden for up to 2 days.
- In a large bowl, mix baking soda, citric acid, and cornstarch together.
- Add the polysorbate to the coconut oil. Then, add the mix to the large bowl of dry ingredients.
- Add scents and glitter, if using, and mix well. Again, use your hands.
- Separate the mixture evenly into three bowls. Color each with a single color of mica powder. Mix thoroughly.
- Fill one side of a bath bomb mold about 1/4 full with the white mix and pack gently. Fill the same side to the top with orange mix and pack. Add yellow mix to the other side of the bath bomb and pack before filling the rest of the way with orange.
- Press the mold together, twisting to remove excess mix. Tap each side gently and remove the bath bomb.
Store (or gift) these candy corn bath bombs in an airtight container until ready to use. You can also seal each bomb within a cello bag for a LUSH-like presentation.
