Tips to Make Mistletoe Bath Bombs
- I’ve been experimenting with making embed bath bombs a lot more recently because it adds a fun little touch to your DIY bath bombs. Also, I just love all the sprinkles, particularly these holly sprinkles here. They’re so cute.
- Now, if you’ve been reading along with me, you’ll know that I’m a big fan of sweet and yummy smelling bath bombs. So, of course, I didn’t pick something like “holly fragrance” if there even is such a thing. No, I decided to make these bath bombs with cinnamon flavoring oil. Yum.
- Make sure to plan on leaving a day or so to let you bath bombs dry for at least 24 hours. This is also handy to plan, just in the event that you accidentally get the bath bomb mixture a little too damp.
- After you’ve got your holly bath bombs fully dried, get a jar or container to keep your Lush-inspired bath bombs in so they’ll last longer and give you the best fizz.
How Do I Make this Holly Bath Bombs?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1/2 cup citric acid
- 1/2 cup cornstarch
- 1/4 cup epsom salts
- 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon flavoring oil
- 2 tsp rubbing alcohol
- 3/4 tsp deep red mica powder
- 2-4 tablespoons holly sprinkles blend
To make the gold accents:
- ½ tsp gold mica powder
- 2-3 drops alcohol
- Combine the dry ingredients and whisk them together.
- In another bowl, mix together the melted coconut oil, mica powder, essential oil blend and alcohol.
- Place 1 tsp of the liquid ingredients at a time to the dry ingredients, stirring it together slowly to keep from starting the fizz reaction.
- Dust each side of the bath bomb molds with cornstarch. The sprinkle side usually comes out on its own, so you can dust that side or not. But the other side really needs it.
- Add 1 tsp of the holly sprinkles to one half of a bath bomb mold, then immediately fill the bath bomb mold overly full of the bath bomb mixture. Repeat with the other side of the bath bomb mold.
- Press and grind the two overly-filled sides of the bath bomb mold together.
- Let the bath bombs to dry for up to 24 hours before gently tapping the mold to release the bath bombs.
- To make the little gold accents on the sides of the bath bombs, stir together the gold mica powder and the alcohol then, using a paintbrush, paint a trio of dots onto the bath bomb randomly, as desired.
- You can use your bath bombs immediately or keep them in an airtight container until you’re ready to use!
