Tuxedo Bath Bombs


Treat yourself to relaxation close to your wedding day with these adorable bath bombs! This cute design makes for the perfect themed project as weddings near. 🙂

What You’ll Need:

2 cups Baking Soda
1 cup Citric Acid
1.5 oz Sweet Almond Oil
0.5 oz Chamomile Extract
6 mL Tobacco & Bay Leaf Fragrance Oil
1/4 tsp Luster Black Mica
1/8 tsp. Activated Charoal
Fractionated Coconut Oil
Small Paintbrush
Stainless Steel Bath Bomb Molds
Medium-Large Glass Bowls

**If you are not local, you can get all of this and more at Bramble Berry! They will ship directly to you!**


In a large bowl, combine the baking soda and citric acid. Break up any clumps that may have formed.
You can use a sifter to help get rid of any clumps if that is easier.


Once the dry ingredients are combined, add in the sweet almond oil and mix together until fully incorporated.



Add in the chamomile extract and fragrance oil to the mixture. Mix well.



Separate the batch evenly and put half into another bowl.

In one of the bowls, add 1/4 tsp luster black mica and mix in until there are no more clumps of color.


In each half of the stainless steel bath bomb molds, add in a small amount of cyclomethicone until the entire mold is covered. This will help the bath bomb release from the mold.


Once the cyclomethicone is added, fill half the mold with the black bath bomb mixture, and the other half with the white bath bomb mixture. Be sure your mixture is packed tightly into the mold.




Push together the two half molds (with some force) until there is no extra bath bomb mixture to be seen between the two halves.


Grab a fork (or butter knife) and tap the mold all around. This helps to release the bath bomb.




In a small dixie cup or ramekin, combine 1/8 tsp activated charcoal with a small amount of fractionated coconut oil and mix until completely incorporated.

Take the small paintbrush and paint 2 or 3 small ‘buttons’ and a small ‘tie’ on the white part of the bath bomb. Then, paint a black band around the center of the bath bombs.



Because this recipe uses black mica and a very small amount of activated charcoal in the buttons and tie, your tub may require a little bit of cleaning after a bath!




For the month of August, take 15% all extracts!
