Easy DIY bath bombs!! YES! So excited to share this lush bath bomb recipe DIY! You know how people say no adults take baths? I have NO clue where they get that—I challenge any toddler to love bath time as much as me! The bath is my happy place—I’ve been known to spend an hour or two in there with a good book + a good glass of something. 😉
Bathing, like pretty much anything else, is much more enjoyable when it smells nice. I was spending a small fortune at Lush buying bath bombs until I finally decided to try to make them myself. You guys, these easy DIY bath bombs had me kicking myself for not doing this earlier!
These easy diy bath bombs are so fun to make! These are perfect to make as a gift, or just keep for yourself (or both!). I added food dye for coloring and essential oils for aroma, but you could do without one or the other if you prefer.
As I was researching how to make bath bombs, I saw that several people had recommended this recipe from Instructables, so that’s the one I used and tweaked slightly to make mine—it worked perfectly!

Note- the original recipe strongly suggests weighing out the ingredients using a kitchen scale for accuracy, but I didn’t have mine on hand (and was too lazy to go find it!) so I measured mine with measuring cups and spoons, and didn’t have any issues. It’s probably best to use a kitchen scale, but you don’t necessarily HAVE to. 😉
- 3/4 tbsp water
- 20 drops of essential oil (I personally use Young Living and love it, but you can also find some essential oils on Amazon like this set)
- 1-2 drops food coloring
Start by mixing all your dry ingredients in a glass bowl with a whisk. Make sure you get all the lumps out!
Then, add mix all the wet ingredients together in a separate bowl.
Slowly stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredient bowl. If it starts fizzing…stop!
Once the wet ingredients are mixed it, test the consistency by pinching some together—it should hold the shape.
Now it’s time to put the mixture into your molds! You want to make sure they are packed in there TIGHT! Here are the links to the exact molds I used:
Once they are in the mold, let them sit overnight to dry. Your room will smell SO GOOD in the meantime! Then, carefully de-mold them and enjoy! 🙂 Easy diy bath bombs FTW!!
