Tips for Making These Rapunzel Bath Bombs
These are colors, friends, and with that comes a few things to know about coloring bath bombs. Here are a few tips:
- Please do not use food coloring. It will make your bath bombs purple but it will likely stain a tub.
- Don’t like baths? No problem! You can mold this recipe in any flat-backed design so they will be safe for use as Rapunzel shower fizzies.
- There is an ingredient which is optional, Polysorbate 80. The purpose of this emulsifier is to limit the oils and butters from pooling at the top of the water, as well as to reduce mica from adhering to the walls of the tub.
- Let them sit if this is your first set of bath bombs. This is a no-fail bath bomb recipe, but if your mix was a little too moist, letting it sit untouched is the best way to make sure they don’t crumble.
- You can use any scents you want and any brand of oils. You can use any colors.
- If your bombs crumble, see this article on trouble-shooting bath bombs and shower fizzies to find out your options to remake them.

How Do I Make Rapunzel Bath Bombs?
I’m so glad you asked! Below are the written instructions with images but if you’re putting together a bath bomb recipe playlist on YouTube, here is our Rapunzel Bath Bombs video tutorial.
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1/2 cup citric acid (buy in bulk on Amazon)
- 1/2 cup cornstarch
- 3 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon polysorbate-80, optional (I get mine here on Amazon)
- 10-20 drops EACH orange and frankincense essential oils)
- mica powder (I used two purples and a yellow I got here on Amazon)
- cosmetic glitter in dark and light purple and yellow
- spray bottle filled with rubbing alcohol or witch hazel
- bath bomb molds (these are my favorites)
- large mixing bowl
- three smaller bowls
- In a large bowl, whisk together the baking soda, citric acid, and cornstarch.
- Add in the coconut oil and poly-80. Mix until incorporated and then add the essential oils (start with 10 drops of each and go from there).
- Remove all lumps when mixing and divide into three small bowls. Add mica powder and cosmetic glitter (if using). Stir until combined and all lumps are removed.
- Spray a color mixture with the alcohol (start with only a few sprays) and combine fully until the mixture feels like wet sand. Your goal isn't a lot of moisture but it needs to stick together when pressed into your fist. Repeat this process with the other colors.
- Add the colored mixes into your molds, pressing slightly. Remember to fill one side to the brim and then overload the other. Press the sides together and twist slightly to combine.
- Leave the bombs in the mold for 24 hours (we like to wait 48) before removing. Store in a dry container and your Rapunzel bath bombs are done!
