Glittery Candy Corn Bath Bomb Recipe
This post contains affiliate links and/or images. Over the summer, Caitlin and I were busy creating handmade bath and beauty products. We knew it would be an activity we could both enjoy while soaking up some mommy/daughter me time!
Hve Fun AND Save Money!
Not only is it fun to do together, it saves so much money! Did you know one of the large bath bombs from a boutique shop can cost more than $10?
When you make your own, you can save over $9! I don’t know about you, but I can put that $9 to good use!
A Great Return On Your Investment
Initially, we spent about $30 for our supplies (which you can purchase by clickig the images below), which was enough to make more than 20 bath bombs recipes!
We love the layered look with this Glittery Candy Corn Bath Bomb Recipe. And the way the glitter sparkles when it hits the light! So pretty!

- 2 cups baking soda
- 1 cup citric acid (It’s better to buy in bulk on Amazon)
- 1/2 cup cornstarch
- 1/4 cup SLSA
- 3 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon polysorbate 80
- Candy Corn scent
- White Pearl, Yellow and Orange mica powder
- White cosmetic glitter
- Spray bottle filled with rubbing alcohol
- 1 large mixing bowl
- 3 smaller bowls
- Bath bomb molds or silicone molds
*For me, this recipe made 3 large, 2 medium and 3 small bath bombs. Results will vary with the size molds you make. Measurements (diameters=inches and weight=ounces) of each mold:
Small: 1.77 inch and bomb 2.1 oz, Medium: 2.17 inch and 3.8 oz, Large: 2.56 inch and 6.2 oz
**Polysorbate 80 not pictured. We added to the coconut oil bowl.
Steps 1-4: In a large mixing bowl, add baking soda, citric acid, cornstarch, and the SLSA.
Steps 5-6: Add coconut oil. Add the polysorbate 80. This helps the coconut oil disperse more
evenly in your bath water and prevents the mica from sticking to the side of the tub.
Steps 7-9: Add the candy corn scent and glitter and mix all the ingredients together. I use my hands to break down any lumps and make sure everything is nicely mixed in.
Steps 10-13: Separate the mixture evenly between three bowls. Add the white pearl mica to one
bowl, the yellow to the next and the orange to the third. Mix mica thoroughly into each bowl.
Steps 14-16: Take a bath bomb mold and fill one side about 1/4 full with the white mixture and pat gently. Fill to the top with the orange.
Add the yellow to the other side of the mold about 2-3 of the way and gently press down. Fill the remainder of the mold with orange.
Press both sides together, using a twisting/grinding motion to get rid of any excess mixture. Gently tap each side and carefully remove the bomb.
Leave molds to harden 24-48 hours. Store in an airtight container until ready to use. Drop one in the bath when ready to use!
