DIY Expecto Patronum Bath Bombs

Love Harry Potter and a relaxing bath? Well these DIY Expecto Patronum bath bomb are just what the doctor ordered!

how to make Harry Potter bath bombs DIY tutorial

I'm a Lush addict but the price tag on the fancy bath fizzles umm no thanks. So I finally decided to make my own and of course I couldn't do just any old bath bombs I had to do Harry Potter ones. I made three versions in all but these first ones are supposed to represent the Expecto Patronum spell.

DIY Expecto Patronum Harry Potter Bath Bombs

In the books and movies this charm is used for protection. Your patronus  appears in an animal form and can help fight off various dangers. A witch or wizard doesn't get to pick their patronus it just is.

Harry Potter Surprise Bath Bombs Patronus

So when you place this star covered bath bomb in the tub it glitters and fizzes with power and reveals a hidden animal bead signifying your patronus. FUN right!?

How to Make a Harry Potter Patronus Bath Bombs

1). Combine Wet Ingredients
  • 3/4 tsp water
  • 2tsp essential oil
  • 2 1/2 tsp coconut oil, melted
2). Combine Dry Ingredients Note: I combined the colorings after I mixed the other ingredients but I think it would work better to add it to the wet ingredients but I was noncommittal on colors before ;) 3). SLOWLY add the wet ingredients to the dry. Drop by drop. And mix. Mixing with hands works better. Divide up and color as desired

4). Place a small amount of edible stars into one half of the bath bomb mold. 5). Fill mold. Press to pack down and fill more so it's mounding over the top. Place a small animal figurine, bead or other "patronus" onto the mound. Just make sure the patronus is big enough if won't go down the drain.

6). 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. I find that when I take time to color and change the designs by my very last bath bomb it's dry and has a hard time holding but the rest until then do great.
