I’m dying over how cute this recipe for guacamole bath bombs turned out! They’re really simple but the wow factor is strong with this one.
Guacamole Bath Bombs
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we are in the middle of a fun, fun summer. We’re making bath bombs left and right, cupcakes every couple of days, and bringing the fun to our craft room. And one of the kiddo’s favorite activities was making guacamole bath bombs.
She found these fun sprinkles and needed a “bowl” of chips and guac bath bombs. The funniest request I’ve ever granted, but the result is so awesome. If you’re ready to make chips and guacamole bath bombs, let’s get started.

Tips to Make Chips and Guacamole Bath Bombs
- Start by grabbing the margarita sprinkles here. They are what REALLY makes these chips and guac bath bombs. You can get avocado sprinkles at the local craft store, but to be honest the chips and the little smiley face on the avocado slices in this set–OH MY WOW! I can’t get over them.
- To get vibrant colored bath bombs like these, I always rely on mica powders. You can use other dyes and things–but let’s be honest, the mica powder lasts forever and you can make so much from one little container of each color. Click here to get the color I used for these guacamole bath bombs.
- I always recommend that you let your bath bombs dry for at least 24 hours before attempting to use them–that’ll hop-up the fizzy. Plus, if you can manage to contain your excitement and let the bath bombs dry for that long, even if you got your mixture just a wee bit too wet by accident, those bath bombs will dry out well and you’ll still get the best fizz.
- Be sure to keep your Lush-inspired bath bombs in an air-tight container, that way they’ll last longer. And if you gift them, make sure to let your recipient know that they need to live in the airtight container.
- As with any recipe, you can put as much or as little fragrance or colorant into your guacamole bath bombs as you desire-–it’s your bath-time experience. But no matter what you do, please don’t use your kitchen food coloring. If you use regular food coloring, the bathtub will turn green and possibly your skin. So, even though buying mica powder is one more step in the process, you really want to take it.
- These fun chips and guacamole bath bombs are essentially just a mixture of essential oils, citric acid, and a bit of water (with some other minor ingredients but that’s the basic list of it), just like all of my easy bath bomb recipes. So, because I know this recipe like the back of my hand, should you run into any trouble getting them to hold their shape, my advice is to add a spritz of alcohol or water. Then try again. But if you keep running into trouble, you should check out trouble-shooting bath bombs and shower fizzies.
How Do I Make this Guacamole Bath Bombs?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- 4-5 large bath bomb molds
- 4-5 small bath bomb molds
- In a large bowl, combine the baking soda, citric acid, cornstarch and epsom salts.
- In another bowl, combine the melted coconut oil, essential oil blend and witch hazel.
- Add the wet ingredients 1 teaspoon at a time to the first bowl, stirring it together slowly so it doesn't fizz.
- Separate out about 1 cup of the bath bomb mixture into a smaller bowl. Add the nut brown and silver/black mica powder to this smaller portion of bath bomb mixture and stir until the color is consistent throughout. To get a darker avocado pit color, add 1 tsp at a time of the mica powders and stir.
- With cornstarch, dust the insides of one of the smaller bath bomb molds. Pack the mold halves full of this dark mixture, overfilling both sides. Press and grind together the two halves together to compress the mixture into a ball. Gently tap the sides to get the bath bomb to release. Set aside.
- Add the apple green mica powder to the larger bowl of bath bomb mixture and stir well.
- With cornstarch, dust the bottom half of one side the large bath bomb molds. The sprinkle side will come out on its own, so I don't usually dust that side with cornstarch.
- Place about 1 tsp of the guacamole sprinkles into the non-dusted bath bomb mold half.
- Pack the sprinkle-laden bath bomb mold heaping full of the bath bomb mixture, then dig out a well in the center and place one of the smaller dark brown bath bombs, filling the mold very full. You will want excess mixture to help bond the mold together. Fill the cornstarch-dusted bath bomb mold half, leaving a small portion in the center to accommodate the avocado pit.
- Press and grind the two halves of the bath bomb mold together to force the two mixtures together.
- Allow your guacamole bath bombs to dry in the mold for about 24 hours before tapping gently on the side of the mold to get them to release.
- Use these guacamole bath bombs right away or store them in an airtight container.
