The Grinch Bath Bombs

You know who’s a mean one? Mr. Grinch. And although he may not take regular baths, we’ve decided to make a Grinch Bath Bomb that are so cute, you may not even want to use them.

These homemade Grinch bath bombs are a perfect holiday gift

Who am I kidding?

You’ll totally want to use these bath bombs and possibly even make some to gift for the holidays.

Something you should know about bath bombs is that you have to have a bit of patience which we all know the Grinch DOESN’T have.

Bath Bombs are tricky because if you live in a humid climate, you may need to watch the amount of wet ingredients you add or it may cause your bath bombs to fizz prematurely.

Now, that you are aware, we have a totally epic grinch bath bomb recipe for you below. Just follow the instructions and if needed, adjust to your current climate.

These simple homemade Grinch bath bombs are a perfect gift for someone that loves self care

What You Need to Make The Grinch Bath Bombs:

Note: I highly recommend NOT using gel or food coloring. The liquid can activate the fizzing reaction in the bath bomb meaning your bath bomb will not work.

How to Make The Grinch Bath Bombs:

In a large bowl whisk together the baking soda, citric acid, Epsom salt, cornstarch and the green powdered food coloring.

In a separate bowl, combine the melted coconut oil, water and essential oil. Note: You can melt the coconut oil in the microwave for about a minute until it’s fully melted.

Now, very slowly add the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients until well combined. Make sure you are stirring at the same time. Keep adding until you get a dry, crumbly sand and should not be a “wet” consistency. You want to be able to grab some of the mixture and close your fist and have it barely stick together. Warning: If mixture gets too wet too fast, it will activate the fizzy part of the bath bomb too soon!

Once ready, take the eyeball candies and the small sprinkle heart and place into the bottom of one half of the bath bomb mold or plastic ornament. (I used a small amount of tacky glue to adhere them to the side of the mold and hold it in place).

Now, tightly pack the mixture into the one side of the mold and add your plastic red heart.

Pack the other side of the mold and then press the two sides together. You may need to play with the mold a little bit so the two halves stick together. If you really want to, you can also tape the two halves together to keep the mold from popping open.

Let the bath bomb stay in the mold overnight at least (longer if you live in a more humid climate).

Once ready, lightly tap around the mold with a spoon to very carefully open and remove bath bomb. The finished bath bomb will still be somewhat fragile, so be careful!

Now, take your black food marker and draw on a face to resemble The Grinch.

You’re now done! You can store these for later use, wrap them in some cute wrapping and gift them. Just keep them away from any moisture.

Note: The idea behind the two hearts is that the small heart is shown in the front but as the bath bomb fizzes, you get to see a bigger heart from The Grinch!

Nothing says Merry Christmas like these homemade Grinch bath bombs
