Start by gathering all the supplies that you will need to make these bath bombs: citric acid, Epsom salt, coconut oil, baking soda, coconut oil, cornstarch, With hazel, soap colorant, and goat milk soap.

You may also use sprinkles and essential oil, if desired. We used rainbow sprinkles to give our doughnut bath bombs an extra fun look.

I recommend using lavender essential oil for a relaxing bath experience, but you can use whichever scent you desire.

Then, simply press the mixture into the doughnut mold, and allow the bath bombs to set.

We let ours set overnight, but as long as they set for at least 8 hours you should be fine.

Once the doughnuts are set and removed from the mold, melt up some soap base because it is time to give them a “glaze”.

Equipment

  • [Doughnut Pan]
  • Spatula

Supplies
 

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, combine baking soda, cornstarch, citric acid, and Epsom salt.
  • If you are making bath bombs in different colors, divide your mixture evenly into one bowl per color. Add drops of colorant slowly until you reach your desired color.
  • Add essential oil (if desired) and melted coconut oil, dividing evenly among each bowl. Mix well.
  • Lightly spray mixture with witch hazel until it will hold its shape. Go sparingly with the witch hazel you won't need very much.
  • Mist pan with non-stick spray lightly. Press the mixture into the mold, using a spatula to press the mixture down as firmly as possible. Allow bath bombs to set fully before removing from mold (8-24 hours).
  • After removing from the mold, melt a few cubes of goat’s milk soap base in a bowl, according to the package instructions. Dip the top of each bath bomb into the melted soap and set aside a few minutes to allow to dry. It won’t take long. Then, re-dip each bath bomb in the melted soap and immediately add sprinkles. Allow the bath bombs to sit until they are fully set (about 15 minutes).

Notes

  • We used a lavender Epsom salt, that we found, but regular Epsom salt will work as well.
