Tips to Make Cotton Candy Scented Bath Bombs
- These easy cotton candy scented bath bombs come together so quick and fast. Just follow the directions in the recipe below and you won’t be disappointed.
- I usually recommend letting your bath bombs dry for at least 24 hours so you get the most fizzy for your effort. Plus, when you let them dry for that long, if for some reason, the mixture accidentally got a bit wetter than it should have, you’ll still get all the fizz.
- If you want to keep your Lush-inspired bath bombs at their top-fizziness peak, store them in an air-tight container. And keep in mind, if you’re giving them as a gift for a friend or neighbor, you should keep them in that airtight container.
- Put as much fragrance or color into your cotton candy bath bombs as you want-–they’re your bath bombs and it’s your bath. But never ever use any kind of food coloring–you’ll color your skin with a nice shade of blue and the bathtub, too. So, even though it’s less convenient, use soap colorant or mica powders.
- This cotton candy bath bomb is made-up of essential oil, citric acid, polysorbate 80, and a bit of water (with some other stuff but that’s the basic recipe). That’s seriously all there is to it. So, if you’re having trouble getting your bath bombs to hold their shape, they’re probably not wet enough. Just add a little water and try again. But if you keep having trouble, check out this article on trouble-shooting bath bombs and shower fizzies.
How Do I Make this Cotton Candy Bath Bombs?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- Spray bottle of rubbing alcohol
- 1 large mixing bowl
- Bath bomb molds
- Whisk together dry ingredients to a large bowl, including mica powder.
- Combine lavender essential oil, cotton candy scent and coconut oil in a second bowl.
- Add liquid mixture to the dry mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time. Use your hands to break up any lumps and ensure it's all incorporated well. The mixture is ready when it feels like wet sand and stays together when pressed in your fist. You may want to use your spray bottle of rubbing alcohol to spritz the bath bomb mixture if it is too dry.
- Add a sprinkle of sprinkles to the bath bomb mixture and stir lightly.
- Add a small amount of sprinkles to one half of a bath bomb mold then fill the remaining mold full of bath bomb mixture and mash the two sides together with a grinding and twisting motion. Gently tap top and sides of mold and release bath bomb. Allow to dry overnight before enjoying!
