I have been on a bath bomb making kick lately. It’s fun to experiment with different scent combinations and oils. This Strawberry Bath Bomb Recipe is one of my favorites so far. Give it a try, and let me know what you think!
You won’t believe how I got them to be a natural pink color. Well, maybe you will believe it because it makes sense… I used real Strawberries!
I got the idea because my kids love to snack on dehydrated Strawberries so much that I buy them in big #10 cans. Every time we get to the bottom of the cans, there is a layer of “Strawberry dust.” Adding the red strawberry “dust” to the bath bomb ingredients turns it a light pink color.
You can easily make your own Strawberry dust by putting dehydrated strawberry slices into the food processor or blender. It’s important to crush the dehydrated Strawberries into tiny dust-like strawberry particles because the strawberries will re-hydrate once it hits water. If the strawberry pieces aren’t tiny specks of dust, they will swell up into actual pieces of strawberry. Strawberries are good for your skin, but would be messy to clean out of the tub.
If that just talked you out of using the dehydrated Strawberries, don’t worry! The strawberry dust is optional. It gives the bath bombs a natural pink color. You can leave it out and have white bath bombs, or use a few drops of soap colorant to turn them pink.
This Strawberry Bath Bomb Recipe gets its sweet Strawberry scent from a Strawberry perfume oil. This oil is not an essential oil. It is a perfume oil made to add fragrance to soaps, bath bombs and other homemade beauty products. The best way to describe this particular scent is that it smells just like Strawberry candy.
Strawberry scented bath bombs was a special request from my kids. They really enjoy bath time when I let them use our homemade bath bomb. Fizzy baths are super fun for kids!

One reason I have been making a lot of bath bombs lately is because I bought a set of Caydo Bath Bomb Molds on Amazon. They were only about $8, so I figured I may as well see if they worked better than my other method of using plastic round ball ornaments.
I’m not even exaggerating when I say these metal molds are a GAME CHANGER for me. They make bath bombs so easy. I have used them to make dozens of bath bombs already. I will probably pick up another set of them soon, so I can make bigger batches at the same time.
