DIY Lush Inspired Bath Bomb Recipe (Smells Like Bubblegum!)

Bubblegum scented DIY bath bomb recipe inspired by Lush
Looking for a Lush inspired bath bomb recipe that's perfect for your kids? 

You're in the right place!

Learning how to make bath bombs isn't hard to do and the results are magical! Let me show you how to make a fun bath fizzy that smells great and is perfect for gift giving.


I think this is one of the best bath bomb recipes for teens or tweens. The sprinkles make it fun and it smells like bubble gum!

Of course, we aren't fans of artificial fragrances in our bath products so the bubble gum smell is created through a fun blend of different essential oils.

Making DIY bath bombs would be a fun project for a sleepover or crafteroon at home. I even made you a clickable bath bomb supply list so you can add everything to your Amazon cart and have it sent to you at home.

About essential oils for bath bombs:

Just like store bought products, it's possible to be allergic to bath products you make at home. If you have a known allergy or sensitivity to any of these essential oils or other bath bomb ingredients,  don't use them!

There are lots of high quality but expensive essential oils on the market.

I personally purchase most of my essential oils from either Rocky Mountain Oils or Plant Therapy. Both of these companies do GCMS testing (a type of chemical purity testing) on every batch of oil and freely share that information with consumers. (Neither DoTerra nor Young Living do that!).

Shipping from Rocky Mountain Oils is always free and they have a great selection of organic essential oils so they are usually my go-to. If RMO doesn't have what I'm looking for, I'll take a look at Plant Therapy - they have some great blends, especially around the holidays.

How to make a bath bomb step 4: 

If after adding the oil mixture, the mix is too dry, use the spray bottle to spray rubbing alcohol a bit at a time and incorporate into dry mixture using your hands.

How to make a bath bomb step 5: 

You will know when the mixture is perfect when it feels like wet sand and you can press the mixture together in your hands and it stays together.

Pro tip: Use your spray bottle of rubbing alcohol to spritz your mixture if it gets too dry as you are adding it to your mold. Give a few spritzes and mix together until it has that wet sand feel again.
