Bath bomb recipe
Basic Bath Bomb Recipe
120g citric acid or ½ cup
370g bicarbonate soda or 2 cups
lavender floral water
fragrance and colour
Firstly mix the dry ingredients together. Adding lavender petals is optional but does add a nice touch. Make sure you mix the dry ingredients together well or you will get grainy bombs. When completely combined put about a cup of this mixture into a separate bowl and add your colour and fragrance. Only add 2-3 drops of colour even though it looks like its not enough when you add the other wet ingredients it does get darker. I add about 20 drops of fragrance oil which is about 1ml. Now blend this in well to the dry ingredients using your finger tips (like your making crumble). Now tip this back into the remaining dry ingredients and blend them both together. Use a spray bottle that contains your lavender water to spray the mixture, only a bit at a time. Do not over wet or it will start to fizz, you only need to add lavender water until when held in your hand and squeezed it will hold its shape. When you have the right mix press it firmly into your molds. When you have done this put a piece of cardboard or wood up against the mold and tip them onto this and leave them to set, they should go hard like a rock. Now this is where you get the benefits of my muck ups. LOL. If they break when you turn them out put them back in the bowl and spray a bit more, If they start to puff up, you have added too much spray, pour them back into the bowl and add a little more dry mix. They definitely don’t like it under the evaporative air-conditioning.
Hope you have fun with this, they make great prezzies.
Super moisturizing bath bomb.
To your basic bath bomb mix add 1 tspn of melted cocoa butter, shea butter or olive oil. Add this to the mix when you add your fragrance oil, the cocoa butter in the kit is easily melted in your microwave but don’t leave it while its melting because it doesn’t take long.
