Natural and handmade

Bath bombs have been on the rise lately, there are countless different types, colors and scents available, and both kids and adults love them. But bombs usually contain a lot of chemicals, artificial colors and added aromas. If you avoid these unnecessary things, homemade fizzy drinks are the best solution. In addition, you can make them at home for a fraction of the price and enjoy a fragrant bath whenever you remember.

You can wrap the scent bombs in a nice package or box and give them to your loved ones, who will surely be delighted that you made the gift yourself and put your time and effort into it.

Some recipes for making homemade products require precise measurements and working with more aggressive ingredients, so it is not advisable to let children make such things. However, it is the exact opposite when creating fizzy bombs. You can make them simply and from completely safe ingredients, so try them out with the children, who will have fun mixing scents, choosing colors and shapes.

What does it take?

The great thing about fizzy drinks is that you don't need any expensive or special ingredients to make them, most of them you probably already have at home.

The production, weighing and mixing of the ingredients itself takes a while, so just check in advance if you can find these ingredients in the pantry:

Baking soda - the basis of the recipe is baking soda, which, together with citric acid, ensures a sparkling reaction. In addition, soda has excellent effects on regulating the body's acidity, and regular bathing in water with soda significantly helps in deacidifying the body.

Citric acid - the one ingredient you may not have at home is citric acid. But you can get it easily in most supermarkets, pharmacies and drugstores. In addition to making fizzy drinks, it can also be used for canning fruit or cleaning the kettle from limescale, so don't worry that you won't use it.

Cornstarch or tapioca - what we all love about bath bombs is the silky feel they leave on the skin. In our recipe, cornstarch or tapioca will make it. If you can, be sure to use bio-quality cornstarch/tapioca, preferably from a Czech manufacturer. If you don't have starch, oatmeal ground into a fine powder will work just as well.

Oil, salt and liquid - these ingredients can be interchanged and combined in different ways, so try to choose a different type each time and see what works best for you.


Try a simple but excellent olive, rapeseed or coconut oil or reach for more refined options and try argan oil, cocoa butter or grape or apricot oil.


Stick to the classic salt - Dead Sea salt, or add Epsom salt and discover its unique healing effects.


Plain water works great, but if you suffer from eczema and rashes, give a chance to Virginia's elm drops, which will soothe and soften the skin beautifully.

Smells and colors

There are no limits to imagination here. The possibilities and combinations of scents and colors are endless. Use your favorite essential oils and extracts, add dried herbs, spices and flowers, or leave the fizzy simply natural, without fragrance or dyes. If you want to color the bombs, try natural dyes and have fun with different shades.

Other equipment

You can easily measure the ingredients using a cup and shape them with your hands. If you want interesting shapes, use different molds. Molds and a muffin tray will work great. A larger bowl will also come in handy, as well as a bowl and a wooden spoon for mixing the mixture.

How much is needed?

- 1 cup of baking soda

- ½ cup of citric acid

- ¾ cup of tapioca

- ½ cup of salt

- 2 tablespoons of oil

- 2 tablespoons of water or drops of virginia (if needed, add water)

- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

- A few drops of essential oil, dried herbs, spices

How to do it?

Combine all dry ingredients (baking soda, acid, salt and cornstarch) and mix well in a large bowl.

In a small bowl, mix the oil, witch hazel and vanilla extract. Add essential oil if desired.

Gradually mix the liquid mixture into the dry mixture. Mix well, preferably with your hands (if you have sensitive skin, work with gloves).

Add the herbs and spices to the mixture.

If the mixture holds its shape after pressing, the consistency is correct. If it crumbles, add a small amount of water and mix well again.

Press the finished mixture into moulds, greased muffin tins or other containers. Tamp the mixture firmly and let it harden for more than 24 hours. The bubbles will increase in volume as they dry, don't be afraid to press them back into the molds as they harden.

Remove the dry bombs from the molds and store them in an airtight jar or bag. Best used within 2 weeks.

Sparkling bombs are a great addition to a hot bath after a long day. If you've never tried them, we highly recommend giving them a try!
