Crafty DIY Fragrance Oils Bath Bombs

Hello Sugar! Bath Bomb Recipe

hello-sugarThese bath bombs smell of sweet sugar cane with notes of lemon rind and shortbread.  The delectable tart lemon sugar scent is spot-on to the original Bath and Body Works fragrance!

This recipe makes approximately 5 eight-ounce bath bombs.


(measurements by weight, not volume)

  • 16 ounces Baking Soda
  • 8 ounces Citric Acid
  • 8 ounces Cornstarch
  • 8 ounces Epsom Salts – Fine
  • 1-1/2 tsp Water
  • 4 teaspoons Hello Sugar! Type Fragrance Oil
  • 5 teaspoons Sweet Almond Oil – Cosmetic Grade
  • A few drops of Gel Colourant – Caribbean Hot Pink
  • Bath Bomb Molds – 80mm


  1. Weigh your dry ingredients.  Place in one large bowl and stir.
  2. Place wet ingredients in a small bowl and mix to combine.
  3. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir using a wire whisk. When fully combined, the mixture should clump together in your hands.
  4. Pack mixture tightly into the first half of your mold. Repeat with the second half.*
  5. Add a little more of the mixture loosely on top of the filled second half and close your mold.
  6. Gently release from the mold. Place bath bombs on a soft towel covered with wax paper to dry.
  7. Allow to air dry for 48 hours before wrapping.

*  If you find that the mixture is not packing well, place it back into the bowl and add a tiny bit of water.  Too much water will make your bath bombs too soft, so be careful!
