Lush’s butterball bath bomb is one of their best selling items- which is amazing considering it’s one of the cheapest and simplest products they offer. Even as Lush branches off into wild flavors, embedding chocolate in robot-shaped shower fizzes, and sending out crack-open Easter lines with eggs inside… butterball continues to rake in the sales. Its simple and unobtrusive scent, combined with the skin-softening properties, make it a lovely addition to any bath.

Now, if you’ve chosen to go with natural grated cocoa butter, you want to add it at step 3, when you mix everything together. Then put in the citric acid and mix again.
If you want to melt it, it goes with the wet ingredients.
This is totally up to you. Experiment and find out which version works more effectively.
This is the Lush dupe DIY version of a butterball bomb, but if you just wanted the cocoa butter feeling and don’t mind about the scent, this mixture actually smells amazing with citrus scents. I personally love a mix like lemon-vanilla.
Make sure to use extra caution when mixing the citric acid- it will sting if you have any open cuts or cuticle abrasions. It’s recommended to use gloves once you add it.
And be careful as always when getting in and out of the tub- remember that you did just add oil to the water, which may cling to the tub and create a slippery surface. However, with a spray of hot water from your shower nozzle this recipe will go right down the drain with no residue.
