DIY Crystal Bath Bombs – Instructions

•Add shea butter to a small heat-safe container and melt in the microwave.
•Add polysorbate 80 and Jade Fragrance Oil to the melted cocoa butter. Stir until you fully mix the ingredients together.
•In a large bowl, mix together the baking soda and citric acid thoroughly. (Sift or use hand to break the clumps).

•Add the oil mixture to the baking soda and citric acid. Use gloved hands to thoroughly mix all the ingredients together. Set aside.

•In a separate bowl, add the fine grained½ tsp Dead Sea salt. Fine Silver Rainbow EcoGlitter, and ¼ tsp. Shamrock Green Mica. Use a spoon to mix all the ingredients together.

•Place some green salt into one half of the bath bomb mold. It should fill the mold about ? of the way. Keep in mind that once the bath bomb is unmolded, the salt will be dusted off the bath bomb to give the crystal shape. Don’t be afraid to use a deep layer of salt.
•Now test the texture of the bath bomb mixture. If its like wet sand that holds it shape when squeezed into a ball you are good to go.
If not and the mixture is too dry, spray witch hazel into the bowl and keep mixing it until you get the consistency required is achieved.

•Fill in the mold and press some extra mixture in the center. Wipe the edges and press the sides until the bath bomb is firmly fixed.

•For the best results, we recommend leaving the bath bombs in the mold overnight. The longer they dry, the more durable they will be.

•Remove the bath bombs from the mold by pulling on both eyelets. Once unmolded, use your finger to gently brush away the extra salt. You’ll be left with a bath bomb with an indent.

•In separate containers, mix together ½ tsp. of Pearl White Mica, Shamrock Green Mica, Gold Sparkle Mica. Add  Pewter Silver Mica into about ½ Tbsp. of 99% isopropyl alcohol. The mica mixture should be thin but still saturated.

•Add more mica or alcohol according to your preference throughout the painting process. Finally, fill the Powder Sprayer with Fine Silver Rainbow EcoGlitter.

•Starting with the Shamrock Green Mica, use a fine detail paint brush to apply the mica mixture to the deepest areas of the bath bombs to give depth. Use the Shamrock Green Mica to also line the salt area of the bath bomb.

•Use another paint brush to apply the white mica mixture to the highest points of the salt.


•Apply the gold mica mixture to various points of the salt, and use a clean brush with alcohol to blend. A little white mica is also great for blending. Apply a thin line of gold mica to the outline of the salt for more definition.

•Apply very thin lines of the silver mica to the deep areas of the salt and around the edges.
Spray the Fine Silver Rainbow EcoGlitter to the top of the salt for a sparkly finishing touch. Allow the mica paint to thoroughly dry.

  • Mixture should have the consistency of damp sand.  It should remain powdery but hold its form if you squeeze it.  If it is not wet enough to clump in your hand, add a tiny bit more water or witch hazel spray. 
  • Fill in the mold and press some extra mixture in the center. Wipe the edges and press the sides until the bath bomb is firmly fixed. 
  • Leave bath bomb in the mold for several hours and then remove from mold and place on a soft towel to dry overnight or longer.
