Who created da bomb?

The Edina-based creators of Da Bomb Bath Fizzers have certainly made a name for themselves. “We were bored one summer and decided to make bath bombs,” Caroline Bercaw, co-owner of Da Bomb, explains. Da Bomb was founded in 2012 by her and her sister, co-owner Isabel.

What You’ll Need:

To make your very own galaxy bath bomb, you’ll need the following:

  • Baking Soda
  • Epsom Salt
  • Lemon Juice
  • Water
  • Spray Bottle
  • Food Coloring
  • A Mold
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Spoon
  • Fragrance (Optional)
  • Glitter Or Eyeshadow Pigment (Optional)

1. Pour Baking Soda Into A Bowl

Begin by putting baking soda (also known as bicarbonate of soda in Europe) in a bowl. A standard cup (8 ounces) is a good place to start. The best part about this recipe is that you can do it almost entirely by eye, with no need for weighing scales.

Because we’ll be making the galaxy bath bomb colors in different portions, you can always make more as you go if you run out of the mixture.

2. Add In Epsom Salts

After you’ve added the baking soda to the mixing bowl, add the Epsom salt. I did this again without measuring, opting for a semi-equal amount of both.

Many online how-toss claim that regular salt works just as well. However, the purpose of the Epsom salt is to ultimately soothe those aching muscles and provide the galaxy bath bomb with its relaxing properties.

3. Mix The Two Together

Mix the two dry ingredients as thoroughly as you can. If you have a whisk, you should be able to get a smoother texture out of the mixture. If you don’t have one, a spoon will suffice.

Gather Your Ingredients

4. Add Lemon Juice To Water

Fill a spray bottle halfway with lemon juice and water. Many bath bomb recipes call for citric acid powder, but this liquid blend is a much cheaper alternative. When making the spray, make sure the water and lemon parts are both equal. After you’ve placed them in a spray bottle, shake it vigorously to combine them.

5. Spray Lemon Water Into The Mixture

Next, spray the lemon and water mixture into the baking soda mixture. It’s critical that you only use one spray at a time. If you add too much liquid, the bath bomb will not fizz when it’s time to take a bath.

Spray the solution into the bowl with care and mix it in before adding another spray, and so on. The goal is to achieve a wet sand texture in which the mixture is sticky enough to be molded in the palm of your hand. If it starts to look like slush, you’ve probably added too much liquid. To counteract this, add more baking soda and Epsom salt to the mix.

6. Separate Into Different Bowls

If the solution starts to resemble wet sand, divide it into smaller bowls. These will be the various colors of the bath bomb.

I’ve chosen three, but you can make as many or as few as you like. If you realized your measurements were slightly off at the start, now is a good time to make another batch of the dry ingredients.

7. Add Food Coloring

It’s time to jazz up the bath bomb. Slowly and gradually dribble some food coloring into each of the dishes. You don’t want to add too much, just like with the lemon juice. Take things one drop at a time.

8. Mix It All Together

I’m mixing in two drops here before adding another two. Because I used gel food coloring, my dye is a little thicker than I intended, and it didn’t mix in as well as it would have if it had been in liquid form. If this is the case, feel free to knead the dye into the mixture gradually. Just make sure you have clean hands first!

This is also a great way to test the texture of the formula before continuing to make the bath bomb.

9. Do The Same To The Other Portions

After dyeing one portion of the mixture pink, I dyed the other two with blue, yellow, and purple food coloring.

10. Add Glitter And/Or Fragrance

During the food coloring process, you can be as creative as you want. Adding glitter or sparkles to the bath bomb is a must for those looking to give it a luxe twist. But be warned: they will be a huge pain to scrub off both your skin and your bathtub. Eyeshadow pigment can also be used to create a speckled, galaxy-like effect.

Don’t forget to add any scented oil or fragrance. Patchouli, lavender, and rose oils are usually my go-to oils.

11. Press Into Mold

To shape the bath bomb, you’ll need a mold. Choose something like an egg poacher case for a perfectly round shape. If, like me, you don’t have one in your kitchen, you can make do with alternatives. Choose a bowl for a half dome shape, as I did here.

You can even use cupcake cases to make tart-sized galaxy bath bombs.

If you want to make shaped bath bombs, use a nonstick baking sheet or an ice cube tray. I bought this Easter-themed one for another tutorial, and it worked just as well as the bowl I used previously.

When packing the mixture into the mold, make sure it is packed as tightly as possible. This will prevent the galaxy bath bomb from cracking. It also reduces the amount of air that can become trapped within it.

Simply scoop out whatever color you want and press it into the mold with your fingers before adding another color, and another, and so on, mixing the hues together all the way through.

12. Run A Bath And Relax!

After you’ve finished filling the mold with the mixture, you can either leave it out to dry for the rest of the day or place it in the freezer. I put the molds in the freezer for three hours for this tutorial. I then took them out and set the bath bombs aside to cool until they were room temperature. You must ensure that they are completely dry before using them, or else they will not fizz and spread through the water.
