Tips to Make this DIY Bath Bomb Recipe
- Do not go to light on the soap glaze, as it’s what turns this ring-of-pink bath bomb into a donut bath bomb.
- Be generous with the sprinkles. Donut shower fizzies need loads of sprinkles! They’re fun, silly, and you can never have too many. Plus, they dissolve in water so you don’t have to worry about things sticking to your tub (looking at you, lavender).
- Don’t let anyone the donut bath bombs. This may look and smell fantastic, but make sure everyone knows they are not for snacking.
How Do I Make these Donut Bath Bombs?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial and if you have any questions, please let me know in the comments below.
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1/2 cup citric acid
- 1/4 cup cream of tartar
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons kaolin clay
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons rubbing alcohol
- Birthday cake soap scent
- Pink mica powder
- Spray bottle of rubbing alcohol
- 1/4 pound goats milk soap
- Rainbow nonpareils or sprinkles
- 1 large mixing bowl
- Silicone or metal donut mold
- Add dry ingredients to a large bowl and sift or whisk together until combined well.
- In a small bowl, melt coconut oil in microwave for 25-30 seconds. Add to dry mixture slowly while stirring so as not to make it fizz.
- Add birthday cake scent and mica powder then stir into dry mixture.
- Put on your gloves, then spray rubbing alcohol onto the mixture a small bit at a time to keep it from fizzing. Use your hands to stir and incorporate the alcohol into dry mixture to break down any clumps.
- The mixture is perfect when it feels like wet sand and you can make clumps with your hands that stay together. **Please note** You may need to use your spray bottle of rubbing alcohol to spritz your mixture while you're putting it into the molds, if it gets too dry. Give a few spritzes and mix together until it has that wet sand feel again.
- Press the bath bomb mixture into mold snugly. Allow to dry overnight.
- Carefully remove donut-shaped bath bombs from mold. Spread them out onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Melt the goats milk soap in a microwave safe bowl in 25 second increments until melted.
- Using a squirt bottle or spoon, drizzle soap over each donut bath bomb.
- Immediately after adding soap glaze, top with sprinkles. Allow to dry for at least one hour.
