How to Make Geode Bath Bombs- learn how to make indulgent, ultra-moisturizing bath bombs that resemble geode crystals!
Bath bombs are fun to make and once you get the hang of it, they're actually quite easy. These geode bath bombs are made much like regular bath bombs except you don't have to put the two sides of the mold together to form a ball.
The bath bomb is adorned with dyed Epsom salt and topped with mica powder to create the texture and appearance of geode crystals.
I included a video as well as written instructions to show you how these bath bombs are made.
How to Make Geode Bath Bombs
Oil (Almond, jojoba, melted coconut oil, or olive oil)
Epsom salt (optional)
Dyes & bath bomb mold (I used this inexpensive kit)
In a bowl, whisk together ½ cup citric acid, 1 cup baking soda, and ¾ cup cornstarch. Slowly pour in ¾ cup melted coconut (or your choice) oil. Don't pour it in too quickly because it can activate the citric acid, making it fizz. This will result in bath bombs that don't fizz in the tub. The texture should be crumbly and it should stay together when you pinch it.
Add essential oil and soap dye. Mix until combined. Press the mixture into the bath bomb mold and let dry for 4-6 hours. Once dry, gently remove the bath bomb. Add soap dye to Epson salt and stir to create the geode colors. Using a paintbrush, apply melted coconut oil to the top of the bath bomb. Sprinkle on the dyed Epsom salt and repeat.
The final touch is to play up the color using mica powder. Brush on the powder using a paintbrush and melted coconut oil.
Let the bath bombs dry overnight before using.
