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, 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.
