Using a large cookie scoop (about a 3 tablespoon size), scoop mounds of the mixture into rounds.
Release onto a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. Alternatively, you can use a Bath Bomb Mold to form the balls.
Chill the DIY bath bombs for 30 minutes until the rounded mounds become firm.
Remove from the refrigerator and transfer the moisturizing bath bombs into a bag or jar with a lid. Store in a cool, dry place.
Tips for Making DIY Bath Bombs
To achieve the right consistency in these homemade bath bombs, you should use solid coconut oil, NOT liquid coconut oil.
Also note that coconut oil is solid at room temperature. If you’re having issues with your DIY bath bombs being too soft, it could be because your house is too warm.
If stored in an airtight container at room temperature, these DIY bath bombs will last for a few months. Consider storing them someplace cool so they don’t soften.
