Our Best Bath Bomb Recipes: eight of our very favorite recipes for fizzing bath bombs
It’s been over two decades since bath bombs exploded in popularity. While these iconic fizzing bath treats can be found on shelves in big-box stores pretty much everywhere, I personally think the handmade market still does them best. Anyone can throw together a powdery batch of baking soda and citric acid, but it takes a true artisan to craft a bath bomb that stands out. The very best bath bombs include skin nourishing ingredients, gorgeous colors, captivating scents, and an attention to detail that artisans deliver with grace and style.
The following recipes are some of our very best bath bomb recipes from over the years. We have shared a whole lot of them, but these are our favorites. If you’d rather focus on crafting your own original bath bomb recipes, we suggest checking out our A Guide to Making Bath Bombs or Elaine Stavert’s excellent book, Bath Bombs.
