Love Potion Fizzy Bath Bombs


I love making fizzy bath bombs and realized I have never posted a recipe for them.  They are super easy to craft and the add-in options are endless.  You can choose your favorite carrier oils, essential oils, dried herbs, or even mica shine.  The only biggie is to make sure you don't make them on a rainy day or a super humid day, because if you do, they will start to "wart" while drying.  The moisture in the air will attach to the bath bomb and sorta "set it off".  Other than that, the only other trick is when you mist with water, don't spray too much.  You want just enough to make the mixture stick together when pressed.  Have fun making these!!!

Love Potion Fizzy Bath Bombs
200 grams Baking Soda
100 grams Citric Acid
5 grams Powdered Pink Rose Petals
5 grams Sweet Almond Oil
30 drops Love Potion Essential Oil Blend
Rosewater in a spray bottle

 Sift the dry ingredients into a large glass mixing bowl.

Mix the dry ingredients together well.

Add in 30 drops of the Aura Cacia Love Potion blend.  This blend contains mandarin, lemon, cardamom, sandalwood, patchouli, ylang ylang, vetiver and jasmine essential oils.  This smells amazing!! Mix well to combine into the dry ingredients.

Drizzle the oil over the dry mixture and work quickly to combine well.

Mist the mixture with a few sprays of the rosewater and work the mixture in with your hands.  You may need a few more sprays to get the mixture to say together when formed into a ball.  I used a total of 10 sprays. 

There is a fine line between too much water and not enough.  If you notice the mixture start to fizz you have added too much.  If the mixture will not hold together when formed into a ball, then you have added too little. 


Quickly press the mixture firmly into your chosen mold or use your hands to form solid balls.  I used a silicone brownie pop mold and the recipe made just enough to firmly pack each cavity.


Make sure you firmly pack the mix into the mold.  Flip over your mold and remove the bath bombs. Cover with a dry towel and allow to dry for 24 hours or until hard.

Once dry you simply run a bath of warm water and drop in one or two bath bombs and enjoy the skin softening fizzy action.
