Making Bath Bombs

I made these as stocking stuffer snowmen for my adult children, but they are a treat anytime of the year! Unfortunately I didn't take a final photo of them with their "faces on", but it was a simply drawn as a bunch of dots (similar to smiley faces really) made with a Betty Crocker Easy Writer 4 decorator pen.


Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 6 big balls or multiple smaller ones



  1. Combine dry ingredients (baking soda, salt, citric acid, and cornstarch) in a large bowl and mix thoroughly to combine.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the oil, witch hazel, and vanilla extract and stir well. Add essential oils now if using. Eucalyptus is great for opening sinuses, peppermint for energy, wild orange and lavender are stress relievers.
  3. IMPORTANT: Add liquid slowly (a few drops at a time) to the dry ingredients or it may fizz!!
  4. Mix together well with your hands. When you can make a ball that stays together it is ready to put in the mold.
  5. Grease your mold or ice cube tray and press the mixture firmly into each space. Leave for at least 2 days.
  6. When dry, remove carefully and place in an airtight container or bag. This is when you can add a face and other details to make snowmen.
  7. Enjoy!
