Blueberry Lemonade Cocktail Bath Bombs bring the refreshment of a favorite cocktail right to your bathtub for the ultimate summer indulgence that is so good for the skin!
There is nothing quite like a Blueberry Lemonade Cocktail on a summer day; it is without a doubt, one of my favorite summer treats. The last time I had one, I realized bringing this sensation to the bathtub was brilliant, so I whipped up a batch of these bath bombs. They are perfect for sharing or stashing for whenever the mood for a bath hits.
Made with lemon essential oil, this is the bath bomb you need to treat yourself to this summer! Lemon oil boosts your mood, refreshes your senses and lifts your spirits, but the benefits don’t stop there. Lemon oil has astringent, antifungal and antibacterial properties, to help keep your skin clean and healthy.
Also, lemon oil can relieve pain, and combat fatigue. Adding it to a soak in the tub is a recipe for relaxation! Pairing a drink and a bath bomb is a great way to create a relaxing ritual for the end of the day or anytime self-care is needed.

- 2 cups baking soda
- 1 cup citric acid
- 1/4 cup white kaolin clay
- 2 tablespoons citrus Epsom salts
- 1/3 cup coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon polysorbate 80
- 10-20 drops of lemon essential oil
- 1 teaspoon blue curacao
- 1-2 tablespoons of blue mica colorant
- 1-2 teaspoons of blue cosmetic glitter
- 1-2 tablespoons of yellow mica colorant
- 1-2 teaspoons of yellow cosmetic glitter
- Stainless steel bath bomb molds
- Spray bottle filled with rubbing alcohol
- 1 large mixing bowl
Steps 1-5: In a large mixing bowl, add the baking soda, citric acid, Epsom salts, and kaolin clay. Whisk dry ingredients together.
Steps 6-9: Add the coconut oil. This binds all the ingredients together, so your bath bombs don’t crumble when you touch them! Add the polysorbate 80. This helps the coconut oil disperse more evenly in your bath water, makes the bath bombs bubbly and prevents the mica from sticking to the side of the tub.
Now add the lemon essential oil and blue curacao. Mix well. You may need to use your hands to break down any lumps and make sure everything is mixed in. The mixture is perfect when it holds together when you press it into your hands and feels like wet sand. Separate into 2 bowls.
Steps 10-11: Mix in 1-2 tablespoon of the blue powdered mica colorant and blue cosmetic glitter into one and the yellow powdered mica colorant and yellow cosmetic glitter into the other bowl.
Steps 12-15: Layer the mixture into each side of the bath bomb molds until the mixture is slightly overflowing. Press molds together and grind gently to remove the excess mixture. Gently tap each side of the mold to release the bombs. Allow drying a minimum of 24 hours.
