Hogwarts House Harry Potter Bath Bombs Recipe Tutorial


What is better than joining two loves? Bath Bombs and Harry Potter are huge in our family. Last year we made Expecto Patronum bath bombs that revealed the user’s patrons and frankly make the kids (and if we’re honest adults) giddy. This time I’m doing good old Hogwarts House Bath Bombs.

See process pictures of how to make basic bath bombs on my Patronus Bath bomb post or watch the vi.

  1. Combine Wet Ingredients
  2. Combine Dry Ingredients
  3. SLOWLY add the wet ingredients to the dry. Drop by drop. And mix. Mixing with hands works better. Divide up and color (you want about a 1 to 1 ratio for Hogwarts House bath bombs so for Gryffindor do half the mixture yellow and half red (if you’re doing more than one house in one batch you can split it even further). 
  4. Place a small amount of gold (or first color) and then some of the red (or second color) and repeat to fill the mold. Press to pack down and fill more so it’s mounding over the top.
  5. Fill the other half of the mold so it is packed and overflowing. Smoosh together and twist so that the excess presses out through the center. Press time. If you have extra molds let it sit in the mold to dry for a few minutes or until fully dry. If you don’t have extras then carefully remove the bath bomb and repeat the steps until you use up your mixture. If using the same molds work fast so your mixture doesn’t dry too much before you can mold it.
