You have got to have a sense of humor sometimes and these margarita bath bombs bring a little giggle to me every time I see them. I mean–that worm!
Margarita Bath Bombs
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we have a good time pretty much all the time, it’s part of our charm. But the deal is that sometimes that’s hard. So you have to try harder to find joy. But then sometimes, nope. It just falls into your lap. Like with these tequila bath bombs. I saw these sprinkles and DIED laughing. I knew a immediately that I would have to make bath bombs with these awesome sprinkles. Or cupcakes. Or both.
Bath bombs won out because, let’s be honest, a margarita worm on a cupcake just didn’t sound super appetizing. But a bath bomb? It’s been non-stop giggles ever since then. If you’re ready to make a bath bomb that’s going to have you rolling, let’s get started.

Tips to Make Tequila Bath Bombs
- Start by grabbing the margarita sprinkles here. They’re ridiculously adorable and really MAKE the bath bombs. I mean–a freaking WORM! That’s the funniest thing ever. I’m still laughing.
- To get cool colored bath bombs, I always use mica powders. I mean, sometimes I use other things–but let’s be honest, the powders last forever and I can make a million bath bombs with them. Click here to get the color I used for these tequila bath bombs.
- Let your bath bombs dry on the counter for about 24 hours before you try to use them so you can amp up the fizziness factor. Plus, if the bath bombs can dry for that long, even if you accidentally added a bit more liquid than necessary to the mixture, you’ll still get an awesome fizz.
- To get the most fizz for your effort, I always recommend keeping your Lush-inspired bath bombs in a mason jar or other air-tight container, They’ll last longer and give you the most fizz. Remember that, too, if you decide to gift them, you should let your recipient know, as well.
- As always, you can add as much or little fragrance or colorant into your margarita bath bombs as you want-–it’s your fizzy experience. But do not ever (and I mean ever never) use your typical food coloring. If you do, not only will you color the bathtub but you’re like to color your skin. So, even though it might be a little less convenient to order soap colorant or mica powders, all the cool kids do it (so they aren’t dyeing their skin, LOL!).
- These fun margarita bath bombs are essentially just a combination of essential oils, citric acid, and a bit of water (with some other goodies but that’s the gist of it), just like all my bath bomb recipes. So, I’ve made these a few times and really know that, should you run into any trouble getting them to hold their shape, it’s probably that they’re not wet enough–I’ve written the recipe to be a bit dry intentionally. Just add a little bit more water and try again. But if you keep running into trouble, you should check out trouble-shooting bath bombs and shower fizzies.
How Do I Make Margarita Bath Bombs?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- 4-5 large 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.
- Add the green mica powder and stir well.
- With cornstarch, dust the bottom half of one side the bath bomb molds. The sprinkle side will come out on its own, so I don't dust that side with cornstarch.
- Place about 1 tsp of the margarita sprinkles into the non-dusted bath bomb mold half.
- Pack the sprinkle-laden bath bomb mold heaping full of the bath bomb mixture. You will want excess mixture to help bond the mold together. Repeat with the cornstarch-dusted bath bomb mold.
- Press and grind the two halves of the bath bomb mold together to force the two mixtures together.
- Allow your margarita 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 margarita bath bombs right away or store them in an airtight container.
