It feels like spring, at least in Ohio! (I’m sure I jinxed myself)
St. Patrick’s Day is only a few weeks away and we have some fun recipes to get you into the spirit. This week we will be making our kid friendly Leprechaun Bath Bombs. Your little leprechauns will love them.
This fun and easy recipe will make bath time so much fun. It’s kid tested and Mom/Dad approved!
No kids, no problem! You and your customers will love the enchanting smell, while reminiscing of your childhood.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 cup Sodium Bicarbonate (baking soda)
1/2 cup Citric Acid
1/2 cup Epsom Salt
1/2 tsp Matte Woodland Green Pigment Powder
1 tsp Water
1 tsp Lucky Charms (our version of) fragrance oil
3 tsp Sweet Almond Oil
Step 1. Combine the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl and whisk evenly together (set aside).
Step 2. Mix the wet ingredients together until well blended (FYI: I chose to use fragrance oil in this recipe, you may also use any essential oil of your choice).
Step 3. Slowly add the wet mixture into the dry mixture (I found adding a small amount at a time works best).
Step 4. WORK QUICKLY to prevent the mixture from drying out. Add mixture to any bath bomb mold. Pack tightly and let dry.
Step 5. To release your bath bomb lightly tap with a spoon.
Once hardened, you can use your bath bomb immediately, however we let ours dry overnight. It was so hard to wait!

Leprechaun Bath Bomb Recipe
will the green stain the body and the tub?
It shouldn’t once used in the amount specified.
How do you store the bath bombs if you make several of them? thx
You can shrink wrap them, or store them in a jar.
I made this recipe – but only have one mold – and after I un-olded them, they didn’t retain their shape. Do they have to completely dry in the mold?
I sorry for that; yes, please allow it to drip in the mold. Let us know if that helped!
How many bath bombs will this particular recipe yield?
You should get roughly 4 bath bombs.
