Customize Your Bubbly Experience

The charm of Bath Junkie is in its unique “make your own” feature. Customers have the freedom to walk in and create their custom products, with no appointment needed! Among the variety, crafting bath bombs is a popular—and fun—choice.

Excited to get hands-on, we embarked on our DIY bath bomb adventure.

DIY Bath Bombs

The process begins with selecting your scent. With bath bombs having two sides, you can choose a different scent for each half—twice the indulgence! If you’re a veteran at mixing fragrances, feel free to use more than two. During our visit, we decided to follow the motto: simplicity is the ultimate sophistication, sticking to one scent for each side.

Choosing your scents to make your own bath bomb

Choosing from over 200 available fragrances might be the most challenging part of your visit to Bath Junkie! Thankfully, they offer test strips to assist in identifying that perfect scent. The varied collection includes traditional favorites such as lavender and rose, as well as fun options like marshmallow and pixie dust, sure to appeal to the younger crowd.

Armed with our chosen scents, we headed over to the bath mixing station. This is where the fun truly starts—you get to sprinkle your chosen scents onto your bath bomb, adding colors and even sparkles if you so wish.

Upon completing the decorating process, each bath bomb is placed into a customized bag featuring the selected scent and the creator’s name. Bath Junkie prints these custom bags in-house, adding an extra touch to the whole DIY experience.

DIY bath bombs start at $10 a piece, but that includes two sides to customize and two personalized gift bags. The whole experience seemed worth the price for such a unique activity.
