Tips to Make Millennial Pink Bath Bombs

  • These painted bath bombs are easy to make and the gold is added with just a small paint brush or your finger.
  • Let the bath bombs dry for at least 24 hours to get the most fizz-action.
  • 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. If you don’t have it on hand, you can skip it.
  • To keep your bath fizzies at top-peak-fizzy-potential, store them in an air-tight container. If you’re giving these away, wrap each in an airtight cellophane or put them into an airtight container, too.
  • You can use any color and scent, but try not to use food coloring. It can color skin and the bathtub! Use soap colorant or mica powders – they are tested for skin safety and make tub or basic cleaning easier.
  • If you’re having trouble getting a molded fizzy to hold it’s shape, it could be because the bath bomb mixture is not wet enough. See this article on trouble-shooting bath bombs and shower fizzies to find out your options to remake them.

Rose Gold Bath Bombs Ingredients and Instructions

You will need the following to make these gorgeous bath bombs. I’ll note which are optional ingredients, so if you can’t find them, skip them.

  • 2 cups baking soda
  • 1  cup citric acid 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons pink Himalayan salt 
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil 
  • 1 teaspoon polysorbate 80, optional
  • 10-20 drops lemongrass essential oil (or other fragrance oil)
  • 1-2 tablespoons of pink mica colorant
  • 1-2 teaspoons of gold mica colorant
  • 1-2 teaspoons of pink cosmetic glitter, optional 
  • Large bowl

You will also need something to form the bath bombs. I use this set of different size bath bomb molds so I can the most use of all of the ingredients. You can also use the break-apart plastic holiday ornaments, however, they tend to fail fairly quickly compared to steel.

  • 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.
