Make Your Own Bath Bombs

Updated: Apr 25, 2020

Coffee bath bombs

Sering gemes lihat bola-bola bath bombs warna warni? Me too…

Jadilah, meski ga punya bathtub di apartment, I make a series of bath bombs – yang akhirnya saya pakai untuk berendam kaki atau simply dijadiin kado – it makes a perfect gift for newlyweds, those who are going for holidays or even for yourself to have relaxing me-time.

But what actually bath bombs do to our skin.. are they good for our skin? Hwell, actually when we talk about bath bombs, we talk about bathing dan bathing is part of our beauty culture and ritual. Kita sudah mengenal berendam sejak jaman dulu – meskipun dulu ga berendam pakai bath bombs. The final enjoyment after massage treatment di spa, kita biasanya dipersilahkan untuk berendam di air hangat dengan pilihan berendam seperti susu, atau bunga atau rempah.

Berendam memberikan efek relaksasi. Berendam dengan bath bombs sebenarnya memberikan efek yang sama ketika kita langsung memasukkan oil atau salt atau bahan additive lain ke dalam bathtub. However, menggunakan bath bombs sebagai pengganti bunga atau rempah memberikan sensory effect yang bebeda dan unik – bath bombs are fizzy, colorful, smell good.

Bikin bath bombs ini gampang dan menyenangkan – dan sekalian tes kesabaran, persistent test dan tes skill bikin bola-bola hahaha.. It is also a fun activity for gathering, seminar J Bahan pembuat bath bombs ini juga gampang didapat di mana-mana dengan harga yang ga mahal. Let’s make it!


· Bath bombs mold – saya pakai cetakan bentuk bola

· A large bowl/container

· Whisk – optional, bisa pakai tangan

· Spray bottle yang kecil aja


  • 1 cup Baking Soda

  • 1/2 cup Citric Acid

  • 3 Tbsp Cornstarch

  • 1 Tbsp Epsom Salt

  • 2 Tbsp Dried Spent Coffee Ground – I’m making coffee bath bombs

  • 2 tsp oil – I use coconut oil

  • 10-15 drops Essential Oil – I use sweet orange or peppermint

  • 2-5 sprays water if needed (prepare it in a small spray bottle)

How to Make:

1. Masukkan dry ingredients ke dalam mangkok besar atau large plastic container

2. Mix them well – bisa pakai whisk or use hands (use gloves)

3. Masukkan oil dan essential oil

4. Mix again

5. Feel the texture, tekstur yang diharapkan adalah yang seperti pasir pantai

6. Jika kurang moist, spray it with water – sambil diaduk cepat

7. Masukkan ke dalam cetakan – overfill both part of the molds, kemudian press firmly together

8. Leave it for several minutes, then keluarkan dari cetakan

9. Set aside to let the bath bombs air dry for one or two days

10. Enjoy your bath bombs


Cetakan bath bombs bentuk bola ini ada yang materialnya dari plastic, ada juga yang dari aluminum. Alternative cetakan bath bombs bentuk bola bola adalah menggunakan mooncake plunger alias cetakan press kue bulan. Mooncake plunger ini diameternya bervariasi, berat bersih produk yang dihasilkan juga bervariasi. You can search for this plunger at marketplace

Ingredients utama untuk bikin bath bombs are citric acid and baking soda. Make sure you buy the anhydrous citric acid. You can replace corn starch with dry milk powder. You can also replace water with witch hazel. While Epsom salt is perfect option for bathing since it breaks down into magnesium and sulfate in water (that’s why it relaxes your muscle), feel free to use different type of salt (sea salt, or himalayan salt). You can always opt for fragrance oil instead of essential oil – remember to pick cosmetics grade fragrance oil.
