DIY Green Apple Bath Bombs


There is nothing more relaxing than a warm bath and adding a fizzy bath bomb. These green apple bath bombs are made with essential oils and apricot oils to help relax and sooth your skin! They also make the cutest gift… hello teachers!

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…

Where can I buy bathroom Ingredients?

You can buy most of the ingredients on Amazon. If you already have the molds, Whole Foods will have the rest of the ingredients to make the bath bombs.

Tips for Making Bath Bombs

  • 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!
  • 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!!

Supplies for Making Bath Bombs

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

  • Molds
  • Baking Soda
  • Citric Acid
  • Epsom Salt
  • Green Apple Essential Oil (This Apple Pie Oil would be so good too!)
  • Apricot Oil (Almond Oil or Coconut Oil work)
  • Measuring Cups
  • Green Food Coloring (use natural if possible)
  • Bowls
  • Sticks and Leaves for Decorating

Servings 3 Bath Bombs


  • 8 ounces baking soda softens and reduces any irritants on the skin
  • 4 ounces citric acid for fizz
  • 4 ounces cornstarch reduces any irritants on skin)
  • 4 ounces epsom salt helps detox for softer skin)
  • 2 teaspoons water do not use more than 2 teaspoons!
  • 2 teaspoons green apple essential oil for scent and aromatherapy
  • 2 teaspoons apricot oil adds vitamin E to soften skin


  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 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!
