DIY Moisturizing Unicorn Bath Powder Recipe

How to make a DIY Unicorn bath powder recipe.  Also called bath dust, this is like a bath bomb in a jar or bag.  It's fizzy, fun, and moisturizing thanks to the mango butter.

Bath bombs are a ton of fun, but they can be a bit of a pain to make.  It's been humid here, so making any is completely out of the question as the humidity is just too high.

This DIY unicorn bath powder recipe is kinda like a bath bomb in a jar, and it's so easy to make.  It's just as fun with the fizzy action, but you don't need any molds or special equipment to make it.

I made a unicorn bath dust because unicorns are awesome.  I mean, who doesn't want to soak in a delicious unicorn scent?

Besides, it's pink, purple, blue, and yellow.  How can you not be happy with that color combination?

Last winter, I asked the owner of Crafty Bubbles for a unicorn blend.  I said I wanted something fruity and fun.  He did not disappoint.  I may be a little obsessed.  I've already made a dry oil spray to wear as a perfume.   

DIY MOISTURIZING UNICORN BATH POWDER RECIPE


This bath powder recipe, or bath dust recipe, is an easy and fun DIY that you can make at home.  It would make a great gift, or you could even add it to your line of DIY bath and body if you sell soaps, lotions, and other creations.  

Even though it's easy to make, it's totally adorable.  You can really have fun with this recipe too by using different scents and colors.

If you have failed bath bombs, just crumble them up, make the powder, and call it a bath powder.

BAKING SODA


The main ingredient in this homemade bath powder is baking soda.  When baking soda and citric acid hit water, they create a reaction and start to fizz.  

So, yes, this bath powder will fizz like a bath bomb when you add it to the water.

Baking soda also helps soften water.  If you have hard water, it will make a big difference in how the water feels.

It's also soothing and can help reduce irritation from the skin, including irritation from eczema.


EPSOM SALTS


Most people don't get enough magnesium, but it can be absorbed through the skin.  That's why I usually add Epsom salts to my DIY bath products.

Magnesium can boost serotonin levels in the brain, which boosts your mood.  Adding magnesium can help boost your mood and energy.  

They are also said to help reduce inflammation and promote skin healing.

CITRIC ACID


When citric acid and baking soda are together and get put in water, they make a chemical reaction that releases carbon dioxide.  This is what causes the bubbles in bath bombs and in this DIY unicorn bath powder recipe.

Citric acid will absorb moisture from the air, so it's important to keep these covered or otherwise sealed.  They will turn to mush in just a few hours if it's humid.  

MANGO BUTTER


Mango butter is solid at room temperature, so I melted it and poured it over the bath powder.  This creates hard little bits that give it some added texture.

I like mango butter because it's not very greasy.  It's absorbed quickly into the skin.  

It moisturizes the skin, so it's a great addition to a DIY bath recipe.

You can also use coconut oil, shea butter, or cocoa butter.  


UNICORN KISSES NATURAL FRAGRANCE OIL


Crafty Bubbles, which is changing their name to Right Note so expect to see both labels in the future, has some amazing new natural fragrance oils.  

I love my essential oils, but I missed having some scents that weren't available in a natural product.  Now they have a natural apple, blueberry, and more.  

I asked the owner to make me a unicorn blend, and he just released Unicorn Kisses.  It's a fun blend of fruits and berries.


It's only available in their catalog, but you can call or email them to order.

You can also make your own unicorn blend with essential oils.  I would try 



PACKAGING


I used a cute jar that I had for this cute DIY moisturizing unicorn bath powder recipe.  If I were selling it or giving it as a gift, I'd use the see through bags.


I think they are better suited for the bath because I don't like using glass in the bath.  

INGREDIENTS


DIRECTIONS


STEP #1


Combine the baking soda, Epsom salts, and citric acid in a medium sized bowl.  Stir well to combine.

STEP #2


Separate into smaller bowls to add the colorant.  I used yellow, blue, pink, and purple for my unicorn bath powder recipe.


STEP #3


Melt and mango butter in the microwave for 30 seconds.  Add the Unicorn Kisses natural fragrance oil blend and stir well.


STEP #4


Carefully pour the melted mango butter over the powder.  I used a spoon so it would be easier to control. 

You want to drizzle the melted butter over the dry to make clumps.  There will still be some powder left.  That's what gives this the fun texture.


STEP #5


Let sit until the mango butter hardens.  I put the bowls in the fridge for 15 minutes.

STEP #6


Use a spoon to layer the colors in a jar or bag.  Or combine them all.  It's up to you.  Be sure to cover or close these quick because they will absorb moisture from the air.
