Queen Elsa Bath Bombs
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, I love making easy crafts that kids love. My daughter has loved the Frozen princesses for years and can’t wait for Frozen 2 later this year. When I decided to make a Disney princess bath bomb series, I knew I had to make the Frozen sisters, Elsa and Anna.
First, we made these gorgeous Princess Anna bath bombs and then whipped up a sparkle-filled, ombre version to make these Queen Elsa bath bombs. Let’s get started.

Tips to Make this Frozen Gift Idea
- Please do not use food coloring for your ice queen bath bombs. It will make your bath bombs blue but it will likely stain a tub.
- Don’t like baths? No problem! Mold this recipe in any flat-backed design so they will be safe for use as Frozen shower fizzies.
- There is an ingredient which is optional, Polysorbate 80. The purpose of this emulsifier is to limit the oils and butters from pooling at the top of the water, as well as to reduce mica from adhering to the walls of the tub.
- If you’re new to making bath bombs, just unmold them and let them sit for a day or two untouched. Most issues with bath bombs can be solved by letting them sit and dry. If your bombs crumble, however, read how to trouble-shoot bath bombs and shower fizzies.
- You don’t have to use any particular scent – just pick your favorites!
How Do I Make these Queen Elsa Bath Bombs?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial. If you’re making a Disney princess bath bombs playlist on YouTube, here is our Queen Elsa bath bombs video tutorial.
- 2 cups baking soda
- 1 cup citric acid
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 1/4 cup Epsom salts
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon polysorbate 80, optional
- 3 tablespoons rubbing alcohol
- 10-20 drops lemongrass essential oil
- 10-20 drops myrrh essential oil
- Teal soap colorant (again, we get ours here on Amazon)
- Teal cosmetic glitter
- Stainless steel bath bomb molds (I love this set)
- Spray bottle filled with rubbing alcohol
- 1 large mixing bowl
- 3 small mixing bowls
- 2 small cups
- In a large mixing bowl, add the baking soda, citric acid, Epsom salts and cornstarch. Whisk dry ingredients together. Separate evenly between your three-small bowls.
- In a small container, add the coconut oil. This binds all the ingredients together, so you bath bombs don’t crumble when you touch them!
- Add the polysorbate 80. This helps the coconut oil disperse more evenly in your bath water, makes the bath bombs bubbly and prevents the mica from sticking to the side of the tub.
- Mix together alcohol, lemongrass essential oil, myrrh essential oil and divide mixture evenly between your two small cups.
- Add 1 drop of teal colorant into one cup and 2-3 drops of teal colorant into the other.
- Add the light teal liquid to one small bowl of mixture.
- Add 1 teaspoon of the teal cosmetic glitter to the light teal bowl. With the next two bowls, add a small amount of the darker teal to one bowl and a bit more to the other.
- Add 2 teaspoons of teal cosmetic glitter to the second bowl and 3 teaspoons to the third bowl. This will create an ombre effect with the three bowls.
- Whisk the ingredients together. Use your hands to break down any lumps and make sure everything is really mixed in there. The mixture is perfect when it holds together when you press it into your hands and feels like wet sand.
- Layer the ombre colors, from light to dark into the molds until the mixture is overflowing. Press molds together and grind to remove excess mixture. Gently tap each side of the mold to release the bombs.
- Allow to dry a minimum of 24 hours. If your climate is wet or cold, allow an additional 24 hours. My rule of thumb is that when it is hard to the touch, they are ready for the tub! Store in an airtight container until ready for use.
