25 DIY Bath Bomb Recipes25 DIY Bath Bomb Recipes

Have you always wanted to make your own bath bombs, but didn’t know what main ingredients go into them? There aren’t as many ingredients that create a fizzy, delightful bath bomb than you many think. The primary ingredients that mix together that create the fizzy effect that you see are Baking Soda and Citric Acid. After you add these two ingredients, you can add any body safe fragrance oil of your choice from Nature’s Gardens’ vast collection. If you want color to your bath bomb, you can also proceed to add drops of FUN Soap Colorant to your mixture as well. Listed below are 25 DIY bath bomb recipes that are different versions of this main concept.

Bubblegum Fragrance OilBubblegum Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Spotlight

Hubba Hubba, Bubblegum Fragrance Oil from Natures Garden is sure to bring back some sweet childhood memories with its pleasing, classic pink bubblegum smell.  I’m having flashbacks of my adolescent days just writing about this Bubblegum Fragrance Oil.  I grew up with Hubba Bubba, do you remember those big pink chucks of Original bubblegum?  There were 5 chunks in each pack.  Each chunk of heaven was individually wrapped and as soon as you opened the package, not to mention the wrapper, the sweet bubblegum aroma hit your nose.  It not only made your nose crinkle with excitement, but it made your mouth water as well!  YUMMY!  Growing up, Hubba Bubba was my absolute favorite bubblegum, but I need mention Bubblicious, competitor to Hubba Bubba, which in my opinion both brands were amazingly good.  Fun fact, Bubblicious had a flavor named “Lightning Lemonade” that was discontinued, but then later reintroduced with an element of raspberry flavoring and named “LeBron’s Lightning Lemonade”.  Any guesses on which LeBron that may be??  If you guessed Cleveland Cavs, LeBron James, you are correct.  Go Cavs!

What Does Bubblegum Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is an aroma of a sweet, juicy childhood bubblegum.

Top Notes: orange, pineapple, banana
Mid Notes: peach, cherry

How Do Our Customers Use Bubblegum Fragrance Oil?

Step one of using Bubblegum Fragrance Oil, run to the store and grab a pack of bubblegum BEFORE you get started with this fragrance so you will not have to stop while you’re working.

Room scenters and candle crafters; this sweet Bubblegum Fragrance Oil will surely be a hit with the youngsters as well as the youngsters in all of us.  The maximum usage for room scenting is 50%, the maximum usage for homemade candles is 10%, and the maximum usage for homemade cleaning products is also 5%.  For homemade candles, this scent performs perfectly in joy wax, wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax.  Coloring suggestions for your homemade candles are to use 2 drops of red liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax or shred a small amount of a red color block into your melted wax. Never use crayons to color your candles as they will clog your wick.

A room scenting idea from a customer in Amite, LA; “When using it as a kids room spray, we name it ‘No Monsters!’ It makes the monsters go away when you spray it in their room, closet, and even under their bed”.  Click here for our Odor Eliminating Body and Room Spray recipe to give this a shot!

Homemade bath and body products as well as soap makers, the maximum recommended usage is 5%.   Our cold process soap testing results show that there is no ricing, no acceleration and no separation with a very strong retention.  Bubblegum Fragrance Oil has a vanillin content of 5% and discolors to a dark tan; vanilla white color stabilizer is highly suggested to help stabilize discoloration in finished products.  However, there are more than 40 ingredients used in fragrance manufacturing that may contribute to discoloration of products.  We suggest using pink soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. Never use candle dye in any body products.

Pumpkin Walnut Biscotti FragrancePumpkin Walnut Biscotti Fragrance Oil Spotlight

With all the different ways to make delicious pumpkin desserts, you’ve got to have a scent to represent each amazing flavor combination. Pumpkin Walnut Biscotti would go great with a cup of coffee, filling you up and warming you up this fall. In English, the Italian word “biscotti” means “twice-cooked.” The twice-cooked dryness of these cookies makes them last longer, and the products you make using this fragrance are certain to last even longer than the actual cookies because you can’t eat them! (Never eat fragrance oil- no matter how delicious it smells.)

What Does Pumpkin Walnut Biscotti Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

The aroma of freshly baked Italian biscotti with delicious notes of pumpkin and fresh walnuts.

Top Notes:  almond, cherry
Mid Notes:  pumpkin
Base Notes: biscotti cookie, walnuts, vanilla

How Do Our Customers Use Pumpkin Walnut Biscotti Fragrance Oil?

Candles! This freshly baked fragrance performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax and is nice and strong in soy wax. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this delicious dessert scent in vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. It is not gel wax compatible. Our coloring suggestion for candles is to use 6 drops orange plus 1 drop brown liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax or shred an ample amount of orange and brown color block into your melted wax. Never use crayons to color your candles; it will clog the wick!

Room scents! This autumn aroma comes across nice and strong in aroma beads and its maximum recommended usage percentage in incense and potpourri is 50%. (Try a reed stick diffuser kit for easy room scenting!)

Soaps! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this bakery scent in bath oils, bath gels, and soap is 5%. Our cold process soap testing found that this sweet, nutty scent had a perfect pour in CP soapmaking: no acceleration, no ricing, and no separation. Cured bars retained a strong scent and discolored to a chocolate color. This discoloration is likely due to the 7% vanillin content of the fragrance. The presence of vanilla tends to discolor bath and body products to varying shades of brown. The higher the vanillin content, the darker the discoloration. You can combat discoloration due to vanilla with our Vanilla White Color Stabilizer– but remember that you are responsible for the results in your finished products. Our coloring suggestions for bath and body products are to use orange and brown soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. Never color bath and body products with candle dye or they will end up coloring you! You can, however, try natural soap colorants– just be sure to pay close attention to the descriptions on their corresponding pages as different natural colors will be affected differently by different soap making processes.

Body products (outside of the bath)! This pumpkin scent performed perfectly in perfumes and its maximum recommended usage percentage in lotions and body spray is 5%.

Cleaning products! The maximum recommended usage percentage for this mouth-watering aroma in cleaning products is 5%.

Aspen Winter FragranceAspen Winter Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Aspen, Colorado is the ideal location for a destination vacation — for your nose! (Probably the rest of you, too, but it’s about a five hour flight from Cleveland, Ohio to Aspen, so I’m gonna stay put and just smell the scent.) A beautiful town located in the Rocky Mountains, Aspen is a popular ski resort, and it seems that the only times it doesn’t snow there are the summer months July and August. It’s even been home to the Winter X Games since 2002 (extreme sports – ESPN in Aspen). Aspen is ideal for winter sports because there’s so much snow! This scent will evoke the feeling of standing on a snowy mountain top, overlooking the beautiful Colorado landscape, without having to bundle up!

What Does Aspen Winter Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

The aroma of crisp citrus notes of orange and lemon and sweet cherry, intertwining with an abundance of warm winter spices of clove and cinnamon, sitting on a dry down of sweet vanilla and musk.
Top notes: Orange, lemon, and cherry
Mid notes:  Clove, cinnamon, and spice
Base notes:  vanilla and musk

How Do Our Customers Use Aspen Winter Fragrance Oil?

They surround themselves with this sweet, spicy scent by making darling decorative candles. Aspen Winter performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax and is nice and strong in soy wax. Unfortunately, it is not gel wax compatible. The maximum recommended usage percentage in vegetable and paraffin waxes is 10%. Our coloring suggestions for candles are to use 3 drops of blue liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax or shred a small about of blue color block into your melted wax. Remember to never use crayons to color your candles- they’ll clog your wick!

They also scent rooms in simpler ways (sans wax). The maximum recommended usage percentage for this crisp accord in incense & potpourri is 50%. This fragrance comes across nice and strong in aroma beads and would make a nice filler for any reed diffuser kit.

You can clean with it, too! The maximum recommended usage percentage in cleaning products is 5%.

Customers use this scent to create beautiful bath and body products. Aspen Winter performed well in bath and body products. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this full-bodied fragrance in soaps, bath oils, and bath gels is 5%. Our cold process soap testing results found that Aspen Winter has perfect pour: no acceleration, no ricing, and no separation. The scent stays nice and strong after cure. It does, however, discolor soap to a dark chocolate color. This is likely due to the 12% vanillin content of the fragrance. High vanillin content increases the likelihood of discoloration in bath and body products. One way to combat discoloration is to try Vanilla White Color Stabilizer, but you are responsible for the results in your finished products. Otherwise, our coloring suggestions for bath and body products are to use blue soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you. Never color your bath and body products with candle dye; don’t do it!

As for the shape of your soap, you’re welcome to make it in any shape you like- but how cute would little Aspen-Winter-scented snowflake soaps be? We’ve got a medium-sized snowflake soap mold perfect for melt-and-pour soap, and we also have a mini-snowflake mold for mini-snowflake soaps (or even mini-snowflake candle tarts)!

Customers also use this scent in body applications outside of the bath. The maximum recommended usage percentage for this spicy scent in lotions and perfumes is 5%. This fragrance performed perfectly in perfumes.

Amaretto Fragrance Oil

Amaretto Fragrance OilAmaretto Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Okay, here we go. Remember when we talked about almonds being drupes? Amaretto is a liqueur made from a base of drupe seeds: apricot pits or almonds. ‘Amaro’ means ‘bitter’ and ‘etto’ is an Italian suffix for little. So Amaretto is a ‘little bitter’ liqueur. Little bitter liqueur, little bitter liqueur, little bitter liqueur! (Try saying it three times fast!) It is sweetened with either sweet almonds or other sweeteners.  A popular drink made with this little bitter liqueur is an Amaretto sour, a simple mix of Amaretto and sweet and sour drink mix, and garnished with a fresh maraschino cherry. I don’t know about you, but I could use a drink. Happy Monday! But remember to never ingest fragrance oil- no matter how good it smells.

What Does Amaretto Fragrance Smell Like?

This fragrance is the aroma of fresh, true almond with notes of ripe, juicy cherries. So we’ve got our true drupe base sweetened and garnished with cherries. Mmm.

How Do Our Customers Use Amaretto Fragrance Oil?

For candle makers, Amaretto fragrance performs perfectly in joy wax, wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. Maximum recommended usage percentage for vegetable waxes and paraffin wax is 10%. For coloring your candles, we recommend two drops of red liquid candle dye per four pounds of wax, or you can shred a small amount of red color block into your melted wax. But remember to never color your candles with crayons because this will clog your wick.

For soap makers, the maximum recommended usage percentage of Amaretto fragrance in bath oils, soaps, bath gels, and cleaning products is 4.7%. This fragrance has a vanillin content of .5%, so be wary of discoloration in bath and body products and soap. Amaretto fragrance performs well in bath and body products. Our cold process soap testing results found that Amaretto fragrance in CP soap produced no ricing and no separation, no acceleration,  and the soap discolored to a very light beige. Vanilla White Color Stabilizer might help prevent discoloration, but you must do your own testing to be sure. For coloring, we recommend using red soap dye to your heart’s content.

You could probably use a champagne bottle mold to make little embeds for your candles or small sample-sized soaps. Champagne bottle, Amaretto bottle- who can tell the difference? I won’t tell if you don’t. Actually.. it seems like most Amaretto bottles are in some way rectangular, so if you’re really going for authenticity, feel free to peruse our selection of soap molds and… good luck making it look like an Amaretto bottle. You’re creative; I believe in you.

Amaretto fragrance performed perfectly in perfumes, and the maximum recommended usage percentage in lotions and perfumes is .6%. That’s six tenths of a percent- only a little over half of one percent- be careful!

Finally- room scents. The maximum recommended usage percentage for Amaretto fragrance is 50% in potpourri and incense. This fragrance is nice and strong in aroma beads.

Almond FragranceAlmond Fragrance Oil – Spotlight

Almonds are not nuts, but the seeds of drupes. What’s a drupe? It’s a fruit with a fleshy outer part that encapsulates a shell that has a seed inside. There’s a diagram on the Wikipedia link I put right there. I don’t know about you, but I’m a visual learner, so go ahead and take a look if you want to know more. Common examples of drupes include peaches, apricots, and cherries. The cherry part will be important later. So.. an almond is a fruit. Isn’t that nuts? No, almonds are not nuts. See that weird porous potato-looking thing in the picture? That is apparently an unshelled almond. I did not know this until today. (This should not be surprising if you read my previous post where I admitted to not knowing pickles were pickled cucumbers until embarrassingly late in life.) And those flowers are almond blossoms! Google it. I dare ya. Bet you never knew almonds were such pretty fruits.

What Does Almond Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

Our Almond Fragrance Oil is designed to smell like a duplication of Jergen’s lotion. (Nature’s Garden is in no way affiliated with Jergen’s – we just wanted to make a scent that smelled similar to their lotion). A duplication is called a “dupe” for short. So this is a drupe dupe. Almond Fragrance Oil starts with top notes of apple, almond, and cherry, followed by middle notes of orange, cyclamen, and jasmine, all sitting on a base of geranium and rose. So it’s fruit and flowery and there’s a little bit of almond in there, too (but we just learned that almond is a fruit so it fits right in).

How Do Our Customers Use Almond Fragrance Oil?

Handmade scented candles: Almond Fragrance Oil performs perfectly in joy wax and wow wax, and is nice and strong in soy wax. The recommended maximum usage percentage in vegetable and paraffin waxes is 10%. And fortunately, this fragrance is gel wax compatible. Our candle coloring recommendations are 1 drop of brown liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax or shred a small amount of brown color block into your melted wax. Remember to never use a crayon to color a candle or you will clog the wick!

Handmade scented soaps: The recommended maximum usage percentage is 5% (same goes for bath oils, bath gels, and cleaning products). Our cold process soap testing results show that Almond-scented soap has perfect pour, no ricing, no acceleration, and no discoloration. The scent sticks- whatever that means. Our coloring recommendations are none. Do whatever you want!

Handmade perfumes and lotions: Almond Fragrance Oil performed perfectly in perfumes, but it is important to note that the maximum usage percentage for lotions and perfumes is only 1%. I’m guessing a lot of people make lotions with this since it’s supposed to smell like a famous lotion. Do it up! Just remember- only 1% fragrance oil!

Handmade room scents: maximum usage percentage in incense and potpourri is 50%. Almond Fragrance Oil comes across nice and strong in aroma beads.
