Say thank you to guests of your wedding or party with beautiful and fragrant little bath bomb favours! These fizzy little darlings are made with coconut oil and apricot kernel oil, which both have excellent skin nourishing qualities. The recipe can easily be customised with different colours and scents. Since we chose a flower mould, we used rose and peony essential oils to scent the mixture. We also sprinkled the mould with gold glitter to make the bath bombs extra sparkly and festive. Use the free printable gift tags provided at the end of this post to make package the favours and gift them at your event.

Bath Bomb Favours

Instead of using a silicone mould, you can also use bath bomb moulds for shaping the favours.

Materials

For the bath bombs

  • 200 g (2 cups) baking soda
  • 100 g (1/2 cup) citric acid
  • 50 g (1/2 cup) cornflour (cornstarch)
  • 50 g – 60 g (1/4 – 1/3 cup) coconut oil, melted
  • 10 g (3/4 tsp) apricot kernel oil
  • 20 – 30 drops essential oil or strong candy oil of your choice (Florals such as rose, peony, or lavender work well.)
  • yellow food colouring or any other food colour(s) that reflect the theme/colour scheme of your party or event
  • gold glitter

 

For gift giving

  • printable favour boxes, organza gift bags or acetate gift  boxes
  • ribbon
  • printable gift tags (download below)

Tools

  • kitchen scales or measuring cups and spoons
  • large spoon
  • large mixing bowl
  • disposable rubber gloves
  • silicone flower mould (The cavities of the mould we used had a diameter of approx. 3 – 4 cm / 1.2 – 1.5 in)

Instructions

1) Mix dry the ingredients

Add the baking soda, citric acid, and cornflour (cornstarch) into a large mixing bowl and stir well to combine.

 

2) Add the oils

Add the coconut oil, apricot kernel oil, and essential or candy oil to the dry ingredients. Stir and knead until well combined. The mixture should have the look and consistency of wet sand.

 

3) Colour the mixture

Divide the mixture into two equally-sized portions and tint one portion yellow using food colour.

Tip: Wear disposable rubber gloves to protect your hands from discolouration.

 

4) Fill the silicone mould

Sprinkle the cavities of the silicone flower mould with gold glitter. Spoon the bath bomb mixture into the cavities of the silicone mould, alternating between light and yellow layers. Pack and press the mixture firmly into the mould. We simply used our thumbs to press in the mixture.

 

5) Chill the bath bomb favours

Chill the bath bomb favours in the refrigerator for a minimum of three hours or overnight. This helps the coconut oil to harden and the bath bombs to keep their shape.

 

6) Release

Once cold and hardened, release the favour bombs from the silicone mould. Gently pull back the silicone if the bombs seem to stick to the mould.

Difficulty: easy

Materials: essential oil, citric acid, baking soda, cornflour, coconut oil, apricot kernel oil,

How to use the bath bomb favours

Fill a bathtub with warm water and drop 4 – 6 bath bomb favours into the water.
