A heart shaped bath bomb is the perfect gift for people close to your heart! Plus, DIY bath bombs are easy to make for special occasions or Valentines day gifts. Give this pink strawberry bath bomb recipe a try.
I originally got into making DIY bath bombs for myself, and now it seems like I mostly make them for my kids! Oh well, such is #MomLife. But honestly, anything that gets my kids to take a good bath is worth it. Fizzy baths are fun.
These heart shaped bath bombs would be great Valentines Day treats to make for yourself, family and friends. It takes a little practice to know how to carefully pop the bath bomb hearts out of the silicone mold without breaking them. Just take your time and go slow, and you will get the hang of it.
This DIY bath bomb recipe makes light pink, strawberry scented heart bath bombs.
The real trick to making any bath bomb recipe is to add as little wet ingredients as possible while still adding just the right amount of moisture to hold the dry ingredients together. It may take some trial and error to get a bath bomb recipe to work right. I’ll tell you exactly how I made these heart shaped bath bombs so you can whip them up as easily as I did.
What You’ll Need To Make Heart Shaped Bath Bombs:
- Silicone Heart Mold
- Baking Soda
- Epsom Salt
- Citric Acid
- Coconut Oil (Solid)
- Strawberry Fragrance Oil
- Red Liquid Colorant For Bath & Body Use
- Large Mixing Bowl
How to use a heart bath bomb: Run your bath water, and then drop a Heart Bath Bomb into your tub, watch as it makes a fun, scented fizz, and enjoy.
If you don’t want to make heart shaped bath bombs, you can use this bath bomb recipe to make round bath bombs. I have a Caydo Metal Bath Bomb Set and it works great. The bath bomb recipe below lists ingredient amounts to make 24 hearts using the Wilton Silicone Heart Mold.
You can change things up by using a different color of liquid colorant and/or a different scent of fragrance oil. I use PB&J fragrance oils (available for sale at Amazon) for our bath bombs and they always smell really nice. My kids enjoy scents like Vanilla, Cotton Candy Bubblegum, and Strawberry. I like scents in the Summer Set (Strawberry, Peach, Coconut, Pina Colada, Plumeria, and Ocean Breeze.)
