Bath Bomb Instructions

So, if you’re wondering about bath bomb instructions as far as how to use them, I’ll explain. Simply fill the tub up with warm water, get in carefully, and drop in the bath bomb. That’s all there is to it. Now, you can grab a book, light a scented candle and relax as the ingredients soften your skin. While you relax, the bath bomb will dissolve in the warm water. This will release the ingredients and essential oils into the bathwater.

How do you use a bath bomb in the shower?

Bath bombs really work best in the tub. But, if you want to use them in the shower you can. Just place the bath bomb on the floor of the shower near where the water will land. When the water lands on the bath bomb, it will begin to dissolve and release the scent into the shower. You won’t get any of the skin-softening benefits since you won’t be sitting in the water. But, you will be able to enjoy the scent of the bath bombs.

Do you use a whole bath bomb at once?

Generally, bath bombs are made to be used all at once. You can try to cut it in half if you want to. But, this may cause the bath bomb to crumble It cannot hurt to experiment. Just be prepared to toss the whole thing into the tub if it does crumble. You could try following these bath bomb instructions but filling each side of the bath bomb mold separately.

Do you put the bath bomb in before or after you get in?

Either way works just fine. I put the bath bomb in while the tub is filling. That way, it dissolves slowly and the ingredients swirl throughout the water on their own. But, you can add the bath bomb to the water once the tub is done filling up. You will need to swirl your hand through the water to encourage the ingredients to disperse evenly.

How long does it take for a bath bomb to dissolve?

Each bath bomb is a little bit different since it depends on what ingredients you use in them. But the ones I have used usually take about six to eight minutes to dissolve completely. That’s why I usually add the bath bomb to the water as it’s filling. If you follow the bath bomb instructions carefully, they should dissolve slowly.

Directions

Here are the bath bomb instructions. Finally, you can scroll down for a printable version if you like.

  • In a large mixing bowl, add the baking soda, buttermilk, arrowroot powder (this is an organic and eco-friendly starch) and kaolin clay. Whisk dry ingredients together.
  • Add the coconut oil. This binds all the ingredients together, so you don’t have bath bombs that crumble. You can also use 90% isopropyl alcohol, but I feel the coconut oil holds the mixture together more effectively.
  • Add the cocoa butter. This gives your bath bombs more stability and hardens them, so your bath bombs don’t crumble when you touch them!
  • Add clove and chamomile essential oil. Mix ingredients thoroughly. You may need to use your hands to break down any lumps and make sure everything is mixed in. The mixture is perfect when it holds together when you press it into your hands and feels like wet sand.
  • Mix in the ground (you can use a spice grinder or coffee bean grinder) dried rose hips and Roman chamomile.
  • Fill both sides of the mold with the mixture, press molds together and grind to remove the excess mixture. Gently tap each side of the mold to release the bombs.
  • Allow them to dry a minimum of 24 hours. If your climate is wet or cold, allow an additional 24 hours. My rule of thumb is that when it is hard to the touch, they are ready for the tub! Store in an airtight container until ready for use.
