Our Version of Lush Bath Bombs

Bath Bombs LushI am so excited to share our version of Lush Bath Bombs!  This is not a typical Favorite Family Recipe, you do not want to eat these!!  But this recipe is for the best bath of your life.  These little bath bombs are so easy to make, you will never need to buy them from the store again.  Not to mention they are so much cheaper to make them yourself, especially if you buy some of the larger bulk ingredients.  I got a giant box of baking soda and corn starch so even though I have already made three batches of bath bombs, I have plenty of supplies to make more.  Check out the picture below of how the fizz up in the bath water, they are so much fun.
Bath BombsOne thing that I love about these is that you can customize them to your favorite scents and there is no need to go out and buy expensive oils.  I just used flavor extracts, the kind that I use for cooking all the time and they worked perfectly.  If you really want to use scented oils, just use about one third as much.  Basically one tablespoon of flavored extract is as potent as one teaspoon of scented oil.  I had some awesome girls help me make these and we made up an orange creamsicle (orange and vanilla) batch, a coconut almond batch, and a cherry almond batch.  They all smell incredible.

Save Recipe


    Dry Ingredients:
  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 c. cornstarch
  • 1/2 c. coarse sea salt
  • 4 Tbsp. cream of tartar
  • Wet Ingredients:
  • 3 Tbsp coconut oil, warmed and softened so it's runny.
  • 2 Tbsp. flavor extract (I like to do 1 Tbsp of 2 different flavors- like coconut and banana, or cherry and almond)
  • 1 Tbsp. water
  • Food coloring- a few drops of any color you want
  • Plastic molds, you can use fun shapes or even ice cube trays.


  • Combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl and all the wet ingredients in a small bowl. Slowly pour and whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Firmly press the mixture into molds then turn over onto a large cookie sheet to dry. If the mixture is crumbling when you turn over your molds, try whisking in a little more water.
  • Leave molded bath bombs out to dry for at least 24 hours.
  • Add to a warm bath and enjoy!
