So, I have this thing for the color blue. . .I’m attracted to the color blue. I like to eat things that are blue, drink things that are blue, create things that are blue and yep, even BATHE with things that are the color blue. There’s something just soothing about it, refreshing about it. Think of the sky, think of the ocean. . .and then get a load of these totally cool blue Peppermint Bath Bombs.

These “blue snowballs” don’t fizz like my Easter Egg Bath Bombs, they soothe, invigorate your senses with cool peppermint and transform your bath water color to an ocean blue. What’s not to love about them?

What if I told you you can make them with only four ingredients – one being water? You like them even more now, don’t you?

 Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:

*Recipe makes 1 large bath bomb and 1 smaller bath bomb (if you have different sizes of molds). You could also use Easter eggs as the molds if you want smaller bath bombs – it would certainly make the recipe go farther!

 Start by pouring the Epsom Salts into a mixing bowl.

Add the water, essential oil and food coloring, and stir. See this beautiful blue we’re creating? I’m in love!

Here’s what you’ll want to do next:

  • Grab your bath bomb mold and pack each of the sides with the salts. Make sure you pack it in firmly, putting in more salts than necessary.
  • Put the two mold halves together and press them together firmly over your mixing bowl (so you don’t make a mess) for about 30 seconds or so. Brush away any salt granules that are around the outside of the mold.

Carefully “release” the top of the mold and you should see this. Why do I want to eat this right now? I don’t suggest tasting it at all, just so you know. Here’s where the waiting comes in. Prop the half mold upright overnight and let it set. DO NOT TOUCH IT. If you touch it, it will probably crumble. If you’re an impatient person, I’m sorry. That’s just the way this works.

Also, if you were wondering about my mold. . .I purchased this mold from Amazon a couple years ago and they don’t carry this one anymore which is why the molds I listed in my materials section look a bit different than the one I’m using here. The nice part about the molds I featured in the materials section is that they come in a pack of 12. I have ONE. It’s taken me some time to make all of my bombs and put together this post for you! You are WELCOME! LOL Just kidding. They’re a lot of fun to make.

So, when you wake up in the morning, “unscrew” the bottom of the mold, and you’ll be left with this beauty. Pretty fabulous, don’t you think? And the scent is perfect for the winter months!

These blue “snowball” bath bombs are wonderful for gifting during the holidays. There are so many different ways you could package them up, but the most visually appealing would be in a transparent container, allowing that beautiful blue to show through. I would love receiving these as a gift! I’d be happy to have a Blue Christmas any time. 😉

  1. How fun! I love bath bombs.

  2. I absolutely have to make these. Such a perfect gift.

  3. I am obsessed! So awesome! Thanks for linking up with Create & Share!

    Also, can I just say, I saw you also linked up your Smookies and I’m having a hard time figuring out which of these posts to feature?! Ahh you have such great posts!

    • Paige, you are super sweet and you just made my day. As a blogger, every time you hit publish on a post, you hope your audience loves the recipe or idea as much as you do. I’m always second guessing myself and beating myself up about things. Your comment couldn’t have come at a better time. Thanks for the encouragement!!

  4. I am definitely trying these! My daughter spends a fortune on Lush bath bombs. Pinning 🙂

  5. I am going to make these for my mom for Christmas, but I was just wondering if the blue would stain the bathtub? I would hate for that to happen, I may make them for the girls in the office as well. Thanks a bunch for your ideas 🙂

    • Hi Kacey! I only used a drop of food coloring in the ones I made for the post. That small amount of food coloring won’t stain the tub. I hope all of the ladies enjoy their gifts!

  6. I can smell the peppermint from here! Thanks so much for linking up at Creative Spark Link Party last week. Hope you link up again today! http://bit.ly/1wg0JNp

  7. What a great idea! These are really cool!

  8. As if these are so easy! Thanks for this tutorial, guess I won’t be making so many trips to lush from now on…

  9. You have no idea how much this post made my day. I LOVE bath bombs from lush, but some of the soap they use (the SLS) irritates my skin and I can’t buy them. I’ve always wanted to make them so I could have more control over the ingredients, and now I know how.

  10. These are the most beautiful!!! Since you dont use citric acid, what makes it fizz? I cant wait to try these. Do you have a video that shows how they perform in water? Thanks again for your awesome work!

    • Hi Renita! These bath bombs don’t fizz – they’ll just slowly dissolve in the water, leaving it a beautiful blue with a wonderful scent. I hope you try them!

  11. These look awesome!!! Do you have to have the molds? Or can you just pack them together (like cookie dough) and let them sit??

    • The molds are necessary because the mixture won’t be firm enough to pack together and “stay” on it’s own. It will need compression from all sides. Instead of making the round bath bombs, you could always see if you could find a silicone treat mold from a craft store and pack the mixture in that.

  12. Hi Sara! I was wondering if there is any way to make them fiz? Could you put in some citric acid or baking soda? It doesn’t really matter if you can or not because either way I am defiantly making these again for my friends. I LOVE your recipe!

  13. This is such a great idea! How did they turn out when you made them? Did they fizzle just like a bath bomb? I don’t know what that is like, I’m too cheap to buy them!

    • These aren’t going to fizz like bath bombs. They are more for moisturizing and calming. They also turn your bath water a beautiful blue!

  14. Natalie says:

    These turned out so pretty. Think I’m going to make some for Mother’s Day, but I was wondering do they have to be in an enclosed container or can they just be sitting out on a pretty plate?

    • Natalie, you’ll want to keep these in an enclosed container. After a couple weeks, you’ll notice they’ll start taking on a bit of a whitish hue. These are best to make right before giving!

  15. Hi Sara, I’m also a (really small) blogger. I tried this recipe and decided to write a post on it. I’m just asking if I could use your recipe (I’d of course link your blog). I know this is the nice thing to do when talking about other people’s recipes.

    • Hi Ellie! Thanks for stopping by. As long as you include a credit link to Bitz & Giggles in your post I’m fine with it. Your readers are going to love the bath bombs!
