Easy Unicorn Galaxy Bath Bombs Recipe

Thank you for sharing!

This Easy Unicorn Galaxy Bath Bombs Recipe will make relaxing after a busy day such a treat. I suppose everyone looks forward to that, of course. I love treating myself to a warm fizzy bath. You know what I’m talking about, with Bath Bombs. And I have these bright Unicorn Galaxy Bath Bombs that I made myself. I love Unicorns–and stuff that I make myself!

I call these Unicorn Galaxy Bath Bombs because of the Unicorn colors mixed together to make balls that, incidentally, smell really nice. The fizzy effect is a result of the citric acid.

This is totally different than the DIY Unicorn Bubble Bars that I am also making myself.

How to make your Unicorn Galaxy Bath Bombs 

You should gather your supplies first and the things you need.

Supplies:

The number of bath bombs this recipe will make completely depends on which size bath bomb mold you use. For me, it made 1 large, 2 medium, and 2 small.

Here’s How to Put It All Together

  • In a large mixing bowl, add the baking soda, citric acid, kaolin clay, and cream of tartar. Whisk dry ingredients together. 
  • Add the coconut oil. This binds all the ingredients together. Add in the kokum butter, which is a great moisturizer for your skin. 
  • Add polysorbate 80. This helps the coconut oil disperse more evenly in your bath water, makes the bath bombs bubbly, and prevents the mica from sticking to the side of the tub.

  • Add the scented oil and glitter. Mix well. You may need to use your hands to break down any lumps and make sure everything is mixed in. The mixture is perfect when it holds together when you press it into your hands and it feels like wet sand.  
  • Separate the mixture into the 5 smaller bowls. Mix in 1 teaspoon of the purple mica in one, the blue in another, the yellow in one, the pink in one, and green in the last bowl. If you want a darker color, you can add in an additional teaspoon of the mica. 
  • In the second larger mixing bowl, add in about 1 tablespoon of each of the colors. Using your fingertips, very slightly mix the colors together. If you mix too much or too hard, it will muddy the colors.

  • Gently add the mixture into each side of your bath bomb mold until the mixture is slightly overflowing. Press molds together and grind gently to remove the excess mixture. Gently tap each side of the mold and release the bomb. Allow to dry a minimum of 24 hours.
  • Then, when you’re ready for a super relaxing bath, just dunk one of your homemade unicorn galaxy bath bombs in your warm bath water and enjoy!
