One night I was laying in bed thinking about bath bombs. Because that’s what my happy dreams are made of (well bath bombs and fabric). And I was like
“Hey! What if I make a beach themed bath bomb with a cute little seashell bath melt on the top and make it look like it’s nestled in the sand?!”
So I fell asleep peacefully dreaming away about my soon-to-be-created beach bath bomb. I woke up the next morning and what did I do? I went to Michaels to find a seashell mold. And bam! The Beauty On The Beach was born.
Aren’t they just beautiful? Gosh, I wish you were here to smell them! I just made a batch for this blog post, and now my whole house smell amazing! And not to brag or anything, but everyone else loves these bath bombs too. Check out this YouTube review a customer did on it when Lavish Bath Box featured it in May of this year.
So, long story short – you want to know how to make these. Because everyone will love you when you make them for them. Period. So let’s get to it. Start by getting the ingredients list in my downloadable recipe.
So step one is to make your seashell bath melts. I got these mini seashell molds at Michaels craft store. I have also seen them at Hobby Lobby so before you go Amazon.com crazy, stop by your local craft store because it seems to be a standard mold.
To make the bath melts all you have to do is melt the cocoa butter, pour it into the molds and stick it in the fridge until you are ready to make your bath bombs.
Next, we need to make our embeds. These are the colorants I use for the embeds. For these bath bombs, you’ll be making two small blue and two large green half-moon embeds for each. Once again, download the bath bomb recipe above to see how much you need to add to each of your embed mixes.
Watch the video here to see how to make the embeds for this recipe if you are unfamiliar with embeds and how to mold them:
Now that we have the bath melt and the embeds ready, it’s time to make our bath bombs! Make the bath bomb mix using the Beauty On The Beach bath bomb recipe. Sift all dry ingredients and mix them together thoroughly. Then combine all wet ingredients and slowly add them to your dry ingredients and mix with an electric mixer. You’ll know the batch is the perfect consistency when it looks like wet sand. Observe me grabbing a handful and you’ll know what I mean:
Once your batch is mixed, you’ll be dividing it into three batches and three different colors. Get the measurements for each batch in the recipe download.
Then grab you 2.4″ bath bomb sphere molds, set out all three batches, your bath melts, embeds and a tray with parchment paper and get assembling! Watch the video to see how to do it:
Can’t make them now? Pin it for later!
