I have been on a bath bombs kick lately. Since I ordered bulk ingredients I have been experimenting with different batches of bath bombs and bath melts. My latest experiment created these Halloween skull bath melts. I used a silicone ice cube tray from Dollar Tree to shape the melts into the spooky skull shape.
HALLOWEEN SKULL BATH MELTS
WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE SKULL BATH BOMBS
I used a slightly different recipe for these melts than I had in the past. Instead of using essential oils, I used candy flavoring oils to give the melts a sweet scent. Whichever type of oils you choose, pick a clear oil so it doesn’t color the melts.

HOW TO MAKE SKULL BATH MELTS
Sugar Skull Bath Melts
- 1/4 cup Epsom salts
- 1/4 cup baking soda
- 1/4 cup citric acid
- 1/4 cup corn starch
- 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
- 2 vials marshmallow candy oil for scent
- Mix together the dry ingredients until well combined.
- Add in the coconut oil and candy oil. Mix well.
- Press the mixture into the skull mold.
- Allow the melts to harden (a few hours to overnight) before carefully removing from the mold.
- Drop 1-2 bath melts into a tub full of warm water and enjoy!
To use the bath melts, simply drop one or two skulls into the bath with you. They will melt and fizz as they add silky oils and beneficial salts to your bathwater.
