Can you put sprinkles in bath bombs?

Yes, you absolutely can put sprinkles in bath bombs! These bath bombs with sprinkles are such fun because the sprinkles release as the bath bomb fizzes, filling your bath water with colorful heart sprinkles.

How many times can you use a bath bomb?

Bath bombs are generally meant for single use, but you can use them twice if you just break the bath bomb in half and use one half in your bath tub. Save the other half for later, but make sure that you don’t get it wet.

Do you put bath bombs in before or after?

That is entirely up to you! Personally, I like to add the bath bomb to my tub after I get in, that way I can feel the fizz on my skin.

What is the point of a bath bomb?

Bath bombs are great to use to have a spa-like bath experience. Depending on the bath bomb that you use, they can add color, fragrance, essential oil or fizz/bubbles to your bath.

How to make Valentine’s bath bombs with sprinkles

Below, you will find easy to follow step by step instructions and photos of the process, so that you can create these Valentine’s bath bombs with sprinkles yourself.

Ingredients:

  • 2 oz Epsom salt
  • 4 oz baking soda
  • 2 oz corn starch
  • 2 oz citric acid
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tbsp water
  • 15-20 drops Strawberry fragrance oil
  • 1 drop Peach soap colorant
  • 1-2 tablespoons heart sprinkles

Supplies:

  • Large bowl
  • Whisk
  • 3-4 medium size round bath bomb molds
  • Small jar with lid
  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring spoons

Directions:

  1. Add your dry ingredients (Epsom salt, baking soda, cornstarch and citric acid) into a large bowl. Mix well with a whisk, making sure to remove any clumps.
  2. Add the sprinkles and give a quick stir.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients (olive oil, water, fragrance oil and soap colorant) into a jar, secure the lid and shake well.
  4. Very slowly add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture. Add just a few drops at a time, while continuously whisking. If you’re not pouring slowly enough and whisking while pouring, the mixture will start to fizz and you don’t want that to happen.
  5. Once all of the liquid has been poured into the dry mixture, mix very well until the color is consistent.
  6. Put some of the heart sprinkles into one side of each mold.
  7. Immediately fill the molds with the mixture, firmly stuffing each side full.
  8. Secure both parts of the mold together and let set. I always give it about a day, just to be on the safe side.
  9. Carefully release bath bombs from molds and put into an airtight container, or individual cello bags.
