How do I weigh measurements for bath bombs? What would I weigh my ingredients in? Also where do I buy one specially made for this? Thanks!

You put a cup on the scale and tare the scale. I use plastic cups since they weigh less then glass. Then weigh your ingredient. Or if the scale allows, put the cup on the scale before you turn it on. Turn on the scale and it should say zero. Then weigh your ingredient. Do this with each ingredient. For a small amount of an ingredient like scent or essential oil, you can use a pipette. I have the KD7000 that I use.

I think for now I'm going to use my measuring cups, and then buy one layer down the road

That's fine if the products are just for yourself. As soon as you sell, you will need to be more accurate.

I was planning on making more with the mica I just bought and I'll sell them for a few dollars so I can afford a scale. Wouldn't it be the same accuracy considering there's still a tiny bit left behind using measuring cups too? Especially for the wet ingredients?

The 10th of a gram left in the cup won't make that much of a difference. You can use a mini silicone spatula to scrape off a wet ingredient from the cup. However, a gram might make a difference.
