Easy Homemade Christmas Gift: Bath Cookies

Bath Cookies are an off-shoot of the Bath Bomb. These can be made to resemble true cookies! Especially loved by the “foodies” – anyone who finds food-inspired bath treats irresistible.

Try experimenting with Bath Cookies, using a variety of ingredients to include moisturizing body butters, essential oils, and other skin-loving ingredients. Because these are actually baked, you can use fresh ingredients in Bath Cookies which is not possible in any other product in the formulary.

The more creative you get with your Bath Cookies, the more success you will have with them. Do keep in mind that even these are intended to break up and dissolve in the tub, though, so you want to use as much powder and liquid ingredients in your cookies as possible.

Refer to Perfume Oil Blend recipes to gain some good starting points on what to “flavor” your cookies with, and don’t be afraid to experiment. As long as you don’t use water or water-based products and your final cookie will “stick together”, you’ve probably got something good to go with!

All-Purpose Bath Cookie Formula

2 cups Finely Ground Sea Salt
�½ cup Baking Soda
�¼ cup Citric Acid
5 tablespoons Cornstarch
7-15 tablespoons Olive Oil (just enough to help everything stick together)
1 tablespoon Vitamin E Oil
2 Eggs
12-15 drops Essential/Fragrance Oil Blend of Choice


Preheat oven to 350 F.

Combine all the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Warm the Olive Oil in a separate bowl, and add the Vitamin E, Essential/Fragrance Oil, and Eggs to the Olive Oil. Blend well.

Pour the Dry ingredients in and blend to form dough. Roll gently in the palm of your hand and shape into a “cookie”. Place on an uncoated cookie sheet.

Consider sprinkling with dried herbs, flower petals, citrus peel, cinnamon powder, etc.

Bake your cookies for about 10 minutes, until lightly browned – Be careful to not overbake!

Cool Completely. To use, drop 1 or 2 cookies in your tub and allow to dissolve.

This recipe will yield more than two-dozen cookies.
