Making geode bath bombs became a kind of goal in my mind for a while now–and this easy recipe is so simple, it’s insanely cool and the bath bombs rock! Heh.
Geode Bath Bombs
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we have the best time making bath bombs at home. It’s seriously become one of those activities that the kiddo expects to do together. Like our own little craft idea. But when she asked for geode bath bombs (she saw some YouTube video, I guess), I was not impressed with how hard they looked. Until…I found a cool “cheat” to get the crystals embedded in the bath bomb without all the heartache of making them myself!
The trick is in using crystal sprinkles. I don’t know why I didn’t think of it before–it’s honestly genius. So, if you’re ready to make easy geode bath bombs, let’s get started.

Tips to Make Crystal Bath Bombs
- Start by grabbing the AWESOME crystal sprinkles here. They’re what make these fun crystal bath bombs pop. Obviously. That’s the whole point of a geode, right?!
- To get a really bright edge on your geode bath bombs with the gold edible glitter, either make the mix really thick or plan on doing a couple of coats. Because the bath bomb mixture is so dark, it takes some attention. If you want to use the gold edible glitter, grab it here.
- Definitely plan on letting your bath bombs dry out for at least 24 hours before using them so that you get the fizziest fizz for the effort. Plus, letting them dry for that long, if for some accidental reason or whatever, the mixture maybe got a bit wetter than necessary, you’ll still achieve peak fizz.
- Keep your Lush-inspired bath bombs at top-fizziness peak for longer by storing them in an air-tight container like a mason jar, Tupperware or top-seal plastic bag. And keep in mind, if you plan on giving them as a gift, you should keep them in an airtight container and maybe tell your recipient too.
- You can put as much or as little fragrance or color into your geode bath bombs as you want-–they’re your bath bombs and it’s your bath–make a whole rainbow for all I care, I just liked purple because that’s what went with my sprinkles. But never ever use food coloring–not only will you color your skin, but you’ll color the bathtub, too. So, even though it might be a bit less convenient, use either soap colorant or mica powders–it’s worth it in the long run.
- These geode crystal bath bombs are made-up of essential oils, citric acid, and a bit of water (with some other stuff but that’s the basic recipe), just like all of my bath bombs. So, if you’re having trouble getting your bath bombs to hold their shape, they’re probably not wet enough–the mixture is intended to be a bit dry. Just add a little spritz of water and try again. But if you keep having trouble, check out this article on trouble-shooting bath bombs and shower fizzies.
