There are three undeniable facts:
1. Everybody enjoys taking a bath.
2. Everybody loves unicorns.
3. You're probably on a budget.
On the surface, these facts may seem unrelated, but one magical phrase links them together: DIY unicorn bath bombs. and came up with this fun and easy project, and we just had to share it with you. Who wouldn't be delighted by one of these sparkly bath carbonators? We suggest a batch for you and a batch for your bestest of friends. These homemade treats are definitely cheaper than those $15 designer ones.
Here's what you'll need:
Before you get started on the bath bombs themselves, prep a few unicorn soap horns. It's easy! Just melt an ounce of shea butter and pour it into the horn mold. Let the horns harden before you take them out, then dip each one in the gold mica.
Mix the two together well.
We really like . Add the other ounce of shea butter you didn't use for the unicorn horns, as a skin conditioner.
After mi in the oil and shea butter, split the mixture evenly into your three bowls.
Be sure to blend the color into the mixture as evenly as possible. Spray it with witch hazel (or water if you don't have any) to help get it to a crumbly, yet malleable, consistency.
Sprinkle some of each color to create layers in the mold, filling each compartment completely. Use your palm to press it in so it's really dense.
Here's the boring part, but this is totally worth the wait. Let them dry on a tray.
Here's the not-boring part! Sprinkle glitter on your bath bombs like the magical fairy princess you were born to be! Make sure the glitter is specifically cosmetic glitter; craft glitter is not intended for use on skin and could be dangerous if accidentally ingested.
Dip the bottom of your shea butter unicorn horns into melted glycerin and attach them to the top of your bath bombs.
Of course, that work will be lovingly destroyed as soon as you drop one into the bathtub, but it'll all be worth it when color, glitter and love bubbles to the surface.
