Ingredients Needed

  • Corn flour
  • Sodium bicarbonate
  • Citric acid
  • Sweet almond oil
  • Shampoo or shower gel (you need one tablespoon only)
  • Mica color powders, purple, orange, blue, and pink
  • Fragrance oil

Choose high-quality ingredients to boost the effectiveness and safety of your DIY beauty products. Also, where an essential oil is included in my recipes, I utilize either of two types of essential oils: pure, if added in drops, or diluted, if mixed in grams.

Tools Needed

  • Scale to weigh quantities
  • Large bowl
  • 3 medium-sized bowls
  • Measuring cups (1 cup, 1/2 cup)
  • Tablespoon
  • Small silicone spatula
  • Wooden popsicle sticks
  • 2 small containers or jars to store your DIY Bath Bubbles Powder

Prior to use, ensure that both your utensils and containers are properly cleaned and disinfected. Wash them with warm soapy water, dry with a tissue, and then sanitize by spraying with 70% medical alcohol. Wipe them clean and let them air dry before use.

18- Let’s put two colors in each container:

  • With your fingers, scoop one color into a small container, pressing the powder down to fill half of the container.
  • Top the container with another color.
  • Again, use your fingers to compress the powder, ensuring an even distribution and filling the container.
  • Repeat for the other container, using the remaining two colors.
