Tips to Make Millennial Pink Bath Bombs

  • These painted bath bombs are actually pretty easy to do. Don’t be intimidated. Just follow the instructions below and use a little creativity. And a small brush.
  • Let the millennial pink bath bombs dry for at least 24 hours to get the most fizz-action. Plus, if there’s a little mix-up in your mix and it is wetter than needed, drying bath bombs will usually work that out.
  • 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.
  • To keep your bath fizzies at top-peak-fizzy-potential, store them in an air-tight container. So, if you’re gifting them, do that in an airtight container, too, that way your giftee gets the best fizzies.
  • Feel free to put as much fragrance oil and colorant into these pink bath bombs as you’d like. I mean, they’re your bath fizzies. But whatever you do, don’t use food coloring–that will color your skin and the bathtub and they’ll all require scrubbing afterward. So, stick with soap colorant or mica powders, it’s easier to clean up.
  • This lush bath bomb (well, Lush-inspired) is a bath bomb mixture made of essential oil, citric acid, polysorbate 80, and a little bit of water (with some other ingredients), all mixed together in a large bowl. That’s seriously all there is to it. So, if you’re having trouble getting one to hold it’s shape, its likely because it’s not wet enough. Add a little water and try again. But if you’re still having trouble, see this article on trouble-shooting bath bombs and shower fizzies to find out your options to remake them.

Rose Gold Bath Bombs

How pretty did these millennial pink bath bombs turn out?! They're so cute! These rose gold bath bombs make the perfect gift for anyone who loves pink!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Active Time 20 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Difficulty Easy
Estimated Cost $3


  • Stainless steel bath bomb molds
  • Mini muffin tin (optional)
  • Spray bottle filled with rubbing alcohol
  • 1 large mixing bowl
  • 1 small dipping bowl
  • 1 medium paint brush


  1. In a large mixing bowl, add the baking soda, citric acid, pink Himalayan Epsom salts and cornstarch. Whisk dry ingredients together. 
  2. Add the coconut oil. This binds all the ingredients together, so you bath bombs don’t crumble when you touch them!
  3. Add the polysorbate 80. This helps the coconut oil disperse more evenly in your bath water, makes the bath bombs bubbly and prevents the mica from sticking to the side of the tub. 
  4. Add the lemongrass essential oil. Mix well. You may need to use your hands to break down any lumps and make sure everything is mixed in. The mixture is perfect when it holds together when you press it into your hands and feels like wet sand.  
  5. Mix in 1-2 tablespoon of the pink powdered mica colorant and pink glitter. 
  6. Add the mixture into each side your bath bomb mold until the mixture is slightly overflowing. Press molds together and grind gently to remove excess mixture. Gently tap each side of the mold to release the bombs. Allow to dry a minimum of 24 hours.
  7. Add 1-2 teaspoons of the gold mica and 1/2-1 teaspoon of alcohol to a small bowl. Mix well. Dip paint brush into mixture and brush onto each of your bath bombs.
