Bath Bombs (Mini)




Introduction: Bath Bombs (Mini)

Are you tired to paying lots of money towards bath bombs? Or do you want travel sizes ones in a package where they won't break?

This instructable is going to teach you how to make bath bombs. It is one of the easiest tutorials you can use to create your own bath bombs. Most of these materials can already be found at home.


- 1 cup baking soda

- 1/2 cup citric acid

- 1/2 cup Epsom salts

- 1 tsp. water

- 2 tsp. essential oil (most essential oils already have fragrances)

- 3 tsp. oil (olive oil)

- food coloring (liquid)


- bowl x2

- whisk

- empty kinder surprise eggs (x2-5 is recommended)

- spoons

Step 1: Mix All the Dry Ingredients Together.

Place the:

- 1 cup baking soda
- 1/2 cup citric acid

- 1/2 cup Epsom salts

into one bowl and mix them together using a spoon.

Step 2: Mix the Liquid Ingredients Together

Mix the following:

- 1 tsp. water
- 2 tsp. essential oil

- 3 tsp. olive oil

- food coloring

Step 3: Combine Both the Liquid and the Dry Ingredients.

Place everything into the bigger bowl and mix together using a whisk (to make sure it doesn't stick).

Step 4: Place the Final Mix Into the Molds.

Note: If you have any excess mix left over without any kinder egg molds, simple cookie shapes can be used to make additional ones for home use. This step must be done quick to make sure the mix does not dry completely.

Step 5: Final Results.

Once the bath bomb has dried it is ready to use!

Additional Note:

If the mixture does not dry, then add more dry ingredients as it may be too oily. The same thing can be done with a too dry mixture.
