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.

Yield: 5-8 bath bombs

Materials

  • 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)

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, mix baking soda, citric acid, and cornstarch together.
  2. Add the polysorbate to the coconut oil. Then, add the mix to the large bowl of dry ingredients.
  3. Add scents and glitter, if using, and mix well. Again, use your hands.
  4. Separate the mixture evenly into three bowls. Color each with a single color of mica powder. Mix thoroughly.
  5. 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.
  6. Press the mold together, twisting to remove excess mix. Tap each side gently and remove the bath bomb. photo collage of ingredients and process for candy corn bath bomb recipe
