Make Your Own Bath Bombs As A Gift
Skin & Body
11/2 Cups bicarbonate of soda
1/2 cup of citric acid powder
Potpourri or herbal teabags
An essential oil
Sweet almond oil
Moulds from craft shops
To make the base mix:
Seive the bicarb soda and citric acid into a large dry mixing bowl. This will make four bathbombs.
To make 1 bath bomb, transer 1/2 cup of base mix into a medium bowl and stir in the contents of the herbal teabag.
In a small bowl, combine 6 drops of essential oil of your choice, 1/2 teaspoon of sweet almond oil and 8 to 12 drops of food colouring.
Pour the mixture into the bowl with the base mix in it and then stir QUICKLY with a teaspoon so things dont start fizzing.
Wearing the rubber gloves, continue to combine the ingredients with your fingertips until it starts to clump together when compressed in your hand. It's essential that you do this with your fingertips, not a spoon, so the liquid is distributed evenly. the mix is now ready to go into a mould!
Wipe a little sweet almond oil into the mould.
Fill the mould with the mixture, packing it in firmly.
Make the other bathbombs with the remaining mixture, working the 1/2 cup at a time.
Leave the bath bombs in there moulds for at least 24 hours (36 would be great).
After they have set, turn each mould over and bang it firmly ONCE on a flat surface, then gently ease out the bathboms.
