Valentine’s Day? Not my holiday. But I fully support making a batch of Conversation Heart Bath Bombs anyway. That way, no matter how the day goes, you know there’s a great bath waiting for you at the end of it!
Conversation Heart Bath Bombs
When I make a batch of bath bombs, I typically do them all in the same color. I wanted to do a different color for each Conversation Heart. I measured my heart mold to figure out how much bath bomb mix I would need for each heart. I then doubled my typical recipe.
- Heart Mold
- 5 tablespoons Citric Acid
- 11 tablespoons Baking Soda
- 2 tablespoon Epsom Salt
- 5 tablespoons Cornstarch
- 2 teaspoon Almond Oil
- 6 teaspoons Water
- Scented Oil
- Food Coloring
Mix all of the dry ingredients together, then split them evenly between six bowls. Color the dry mixture in each bowl with a different color of food dye. I stirred at first with a fork, but eventually mixed with my hands to get the best color distribution. The color will be light, but it will darken when you add the wet ingredients. Your colors might also be a bit speckled, so if this is an issue for you, substitute bath bomb colorant for the food color.
Stir the wet ingredients together and add them slowly to the dry mixture, one bowl at a time. It’s very important to do this very slowly to avoid getting the mixture too wet. You also want to avoid creating too much bubbling reaction, as this will take away from the in-bath bubbling action. Add just enough liquid for the mixture to stick together, with a texture similar to kinetic sand. Firmly pack each well in your mold with a single color. Let the bath bombs dry overnight.
After letting the bath bombs dry overnight, remove them from the mold. (Un-molding too soon will cause the bath bombs to fall apart.)
Use a red marker to write your favorite messages on each bath bomb. Keep a paper towel handy to wipe off the tip of the marker every so often.
Conversation Heart Bath Bombs make a great gift for Valentine’s Day or Galentine’s Day!
