DIY Green Apple Bath Bombs

Comments

Since fall is here and it’s apple picking season, we thought it would be fun to make some DIY green apple bath bombs to enjoy while soaking in a warm bath!! The green apple scent of these charming little apples is amazing and I love that they can be given as gifts too! After a few failed attempts when we first made bath bombs, we perfected the DIY bath bomb recipe and I’m sharing some tips I found helpful…

First, do not add more than 2 teaspoons water… even if you think it might be too dry and keeps its shape. It will eventually start fizzing in the mold, which you don’t want!

I found that these molds work the best!! They’re cheaper than the traditional bath molds too! And this citric acid works great.

Let the bath bombs dry for 24 hours and then carefully pull apart!

Stressing again, do not add more water… and follow the measurements perfectly below for successful bath bombs!!

DIY Green Apple Bath Bombs
Author: 
Serves: makes three 3″ balls
 
Measurements Ingredients
  • 8 ounces Baking Soda (softens and reduces any irritants on the skin)
  • 4 ounces Citric Acid for fizz (you can buy it here)
  • 4 ounces Corn Starch (reduces any irritants on skin)
  • 4 ounces Epsom Salts (helps detox for softer skin)
  • 2 tsp. water (no more!!)
  • 2 tsp. Green Apple Essential Oil for scent and aromatherapy
  • 2 tsp. apricot oil (adds vitamin E to soften skin)
  • Supplies: round molds, measuring cups, green food coloring, essential oils, bowls, sticks and leaves for decorating.
Directions
  1. Mix all dry ingredients EXCEPT citric acid in a large mixing bowl (salt, baking soda, cornstarch).
  2. In a separate small bowl, mix water, essential oil, apricot oil and food coloring.
  3. Combine the wet and dry mixture, which should resemble the texture of dry/moist sand. Almost like a flour consistency.
  4. Mix until the color is even. It takes awhile and it’s not just stirring, but rather pushing down with a spatula on the chunks of wet mixture. Adding the food coloring helps you figure out if it’s well mixed. An even color means a good mix. When you squeeze some in your fist, it should hold together.
  5. Add citric acid and mix again (do NOT use your hands at this point as the pure citric acid is abrasive) and do not add water after you mix in the citric acid.
  6. Pack tightly into the mold and wait 15 minutes. Then, remove one side of the ball and wait 24 hours for it to set. Drying fully is imperative. Add the sticks and leaves in after they dry completely. Enjoy!

    Great recipe! Just a note though the green apple is a fragrance oil not essential oil.

    Hey Eden! I LOVED your bath bombs, but the link to get to the molds takes me to a glass Christmas ornament? Thanks!

      Hi Sammy!! Thank you so much for letting me know! That is so odd… okay here is the link http://amzn.to/2zRNwl4 we used plastic clear ornaments that open in half. I found that they worked the best. These bath bombs can be so temperamental, haha! But after trying SO many times I feel like we got a pretty good recipe. Just follow closely, haha!
