Bath Bombs are very enjoyable, and easy to make! They are like bath beads, except they
fizz then dissolve leaving a beautiful fragrance along with bath oil for your bath. They
can be expensive to buy, but they are much cheaper if homemade.
Bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
Sweet almond oil
Citric acid (find this in the supermarket baking section)
--You will need mixing bowls and spoons. Make sure these are thoroughly dry.
--Make the base mixture, which is enough for four bombs, depending on the size you make
them, or the size of your molds if you are using them.
(I prefer molds)
1/2 cups baking soda
1 cup citric acid
Mix well in large bowl.
Store "leftovers" in airtight container.
--Transfer 1/2 cup base mixture into medium mixing bowl.
--Using a small bowl, mix together:
6-8 drops of oil of your choice
2 teaspoons sweet almond oil
--Pour the oil mixture into the medium bowl containing the 1/2 cup of base mix and stir
very quickly so the mixture doesn't start to fizz. Mix for approximately 30 seconds till
mixture stays together.
--If using a mold, be sure to oil it sweet almond oil before pressing mixture into mold.
Use about 1/3 of mixture at the time and press into mold. Press firmly as you go. Let sit
a few minutes, then remove from mold. Repeat with remaining mixture.
Makes an elegant gift - you may want to include in a gift basket.
