Bath bomb recipes are best prepared in non-humid climates. 

Clean and sanitize your work area and all of your packaging materials. It is suggested that you wear gloves, protective clothing, and a hair net while preparing this recipe.  Before you begin, fill a spray bottle witch hazel.

Step 1:  Before starting, you will need two mixing bowls.  The first bowl will be used for your dry ingredients and the second one will be used to mix your wet ingredients.

Step 2:  We will prepare our dry ingredients.  In one mixing bowl add your citric acid, kaolin clay, and baking soda.  Use your hands to mix the ingredients, breaking up any clumps as you mix.  Set this bowl off to the side while preparing the wet ingredients.

Step 3:  Next, to the second bowl, add the wet ingredients.  You will want to add the Fractionated Coconut oil and Hawaiian Ginger Fragrance Oil.

Step 4:  At this time, add your wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.  Then, combine the ingredients using your hands to mix.  You want to be sure the oils are evenly dispersed throughout the mixture. 

Step 5:  Next, divide your bath bomb mixture in half.  You will need to add a small amount of the whole hibiscus flowers to one bowl.  We used about five grams, breaking the larger pieces into small pieces.  To the other bowl, add 5 grams hibiscus flowers powder. 

Step 6:  At this time, we will begin spraying the mixture with witch hazel.  Begin with the first bowl.  Spray the mixture while mixing the contents with your hands.  Keep mixing while spritzing until you have a crumbly dough-like consistency throughout all of the bath bomb dough.  Do the same with the second bowl.

Step 7:  Finally, pack the mixture into each of your bath bombs molds. Keep in mind each mold set will consist of two differently shaped parts.  Fill one half with the purple/pink mixture and the other with the mixture containing the whole hibiscus.

Step 8:  Next, you will need two halves of your mold.  You will need one half that contains whole hibiscus and one half that is purple/pink.  Then, mist each half lightly with your witch hazel.  Lastly, press the two halves together. Continue filling the remaining bath bomb molds and pressing them together.

Step 9:  Give your bath fizzies enough time to setup.  Your bath bombs can stay in the mold, making packaging a breeze.  Another option is to remove them from the molds and package them using another method.


Use one of your hibiscus bath bombs in the bathtub by simply placing it in your water.
