Tips to Make this, the best of all The Princess and the Frog Crafts

  • Do not use food coloring for your Tiana bath bombs. It will make your bath bombs bright but it could stain your tub.
  • You can mold this recipe in any flat-backed design so they will be safe for use as shower fizzies, too.
  • To keep your bath bombs at their top fizzy potential, store them in an air-tight container.
  • If you can find one, hide a Tiana figuring inside the larger mold when making the bath bomb. The kids will squeal with delight at bath time!
  • 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.

Active Time 20 minutes
Drying Time 1 day
Total Time 1 day 20 minutes
Difficulty Easy
Estimated Cost $3

Materials

  • 2 cups baking soda
  • 1 cup citric acid
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup dead sea salts
  • 1/4 cup white kaolin clay
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon polysorbate 80, optional
  • 1 teaspoon Lily of the Valley scented oil
  • 1-2 teaspoons light green, medium green and dark green mica colorant
  • 1 teaspoon light green, medium green and dark green cosmetic glitter

Tools

  • Stainless steel bath bomb molds
  • Spray bottle filled with rubbing alcohol
  • 1 large mixing bowl
  • 3 small mixing bowls

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, add the baking soda, citric acid, dead sea salts, kaolin clay 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 scented 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. Separate the mixture evenly into the 3-small bowls
  5. Add light green, medium green and dark green mica colorant. Mix well. Continue to add color until you achieve the color(s) you desire.
  6. Add light green, medium green and dark green cosmetic glitter. Mix well.
  7. Fill one side of the mold about 1/2 of the medium green mixture, then add about 1/4 with the dark green with the dark green and the light green to the top. Fill the other side with the light green mixture. Make sure you have added enough mixture that the bath bomb mixture is overflowing. Press molds together and grind to remove excess mixture.
  8. Gently tap each side of the mold to release the bombs. Allow to dry a minimum of 24 hours. If your climate is wet or cold, allow an additional 24 hours. My rule of thumb is that when it is hard to the touch, they are ready for the tub! Store in an airtight container until ready for use.

  1. Polysorbate 80 binds with other ingredients and carries it across the blood-brain barrier. I would not recommend using it in your recipe.

    1. Kristina, thank you for your comment. I don’t use it much in recipes nowadays, however, do want to make you aware that a number of polysorbates have been found safe for use in cosmetics (as opposed to food consumption which is measured separately) by the FDA here in the United States, as well as national agencies throughout the world. Food-safe polysorbate is readily available, as well, which helps to limit impurities and can be used within cosmetic recipes.

      This ingredient is 100% optional, as it states in the article, as the purpose is to prevent oils from pooling on the water and prevent mica from adhering to the walls of a tub or basin. I will also add that it is optional in the ingredients list to any of the recipes which call for it in order to make that more clear. Thank you so much for your comment and sharing your knowledge.
