Recipe Directions

  1. NOTE: If you are making these products for sale, good manufacturing practices recommend you wear a hairnet, gloves and a mask. We also recommend a clean apron and covering work area to help with clean up.
  2. Separate the bath bomb molds in 6 sets so they are ready to use. You will see how one side is slightly different.
  3. Measure 2 cups baking soda and 1 cup citric acid. Add to large mixing bowl and blend with a wire whisk. If there are any clumps, a sifter can be used to break these up. If desired, use gloved hands to mix ingredients.
  4. On a scale, weigh .90 ounces of Shea Butter. Place in microwave-safe bowl and heat on 50% power until melted.
  5. Place a small glass bowl on scale and tare the scale to zero. Pour Apricot Kernel Oil into bowl until scale reads .90 ounces.
  6. To dry mixture, add melted shea butter and apricot kernel oil. Blend well with wire whisk or mix with gloved hands until well incorporated.
  7. Add 1/4 tsp. of Bath Bomb Orange powder. Use whisk or hands to blend into mixture. Be sure color is mixed in well so there are no white spots or streaking in the bath fizzies. If a darker color is desired, add a little more color.
  8. Add .5 oz. (1 Tbsp.) of fragrance oil by drizzling into different locations of the mixture. Do not pour all of fragrance into one location of the bowl. Mix fragrance well into mixture
  9. Once mixture is mixed in, pack both sides of mold tightly with product. Add enough so the tops are mounded over.
  10. With one mold in each hand, push them together tightly. Then, unmold the top side and brush away any excess mixture from around the sides. 
  11. If mixture does not stick together, make sure mold edges are free of product and then press together again so sides will stick together. You may need to add more mixture to the middle of the mold, then place together again.
  12. These need to be pressed together very firmly. Add a little more fizzy mixture to help them stick together or you can also try spritzing the top of mixture with a little rubbing alcohol and then try pressing molds together again.
  13. Let bath fizzy sit in the mold for about 30 minutes, then unmold and set on a cookie sheet to dry completely, which may take over 24 hours.
  14. Continue in this manner until all the mixture is used. Each batch should make 3 bath fizzies. Repeat steps to make second batch of bath fizzies.
  15. For the green color, mix together 1/4 tsp. of yellow bath bomb powder and 1 pinch of blue powder. Mix together in small bowl. Add a small amount to bath fizzy mixture and blend well. If too yellow, add a small pinch of blue to the mixture and continue to blend until a nice green color is achieved.
  16. You can make bath fizzies all one color (green and orange) or, if you choose, you can make both batches at one time and make one half green and one half orange. Use your creativity to come up with fun designs.
  17. TO PACKAGE/SHIP: You can package these by keeping them in the bath bomb mold. Or, shrink wrap them once unmolded, if desired. If using the mold, we suggest using the 135" x 55" shrink wrap bands. This is applied around the top and bottom of the mold - not the middle/widest part.

"This recipe is terrible! It does not color the water - instead, the oil and color floats on top and then leaves a greasy, difficult to clean ring around the tub."

"Hi, In many areas you state to use Polysorbate 80 to bombs & fizzies, but I notice this and many other recipes do not use it. If I wanted to use, how much would I add to this recipe? Also, I did add polysorbate to your blackberry tea bath fizzies and they really made a mess in the tub. I have to throw them away. Any idea why?"
