How to make  foaming bath bombs

Supplies:

2 Cups Baking Soda

1 Cup Citric Acid

4 teaspoons massage oil ( or 2 teaspoons essential oil and 2 teaspoons olive oil)

Spray bottle with water

mold (60 mm 2 part plastic ball) (I am also thinking the bottoms of two large Easter eggs could be used)

This amount only made 5 bath bombs.

Mix baking soda and citric acid in large mixing bowl. Mix very well! You can use an electric mixer if you like.

bath-bomb-1

Add in 4 teaspoons of scented massage oil (or other combination of skin safe essential oil for scent and another oil for moisturizing the skin). The scent is personal, so start with a teaspoon or so and add more until you are satisfied. Mix well.

bath-bomb-2

This next step can be a bit tricky because you don’t want your bath bomb to start fizzing. Start by adding a couple of fine mist sprays of water to your mixture and mix well.

You will continue spraying until the mixture will clump in your hand when squeezed. (I used 5-8 sprays, however this will depend greatly on your local climate)

bath-bomb-4

Fill one half of your mold. Pack it tightly.

bath-bomb-5

Fill the other half of the mold and place them together—don’t snap together. I slightly overfilled each half. When I pushed the two halves together they became a ball.

bath-bomb-6

Gently remove the ball from mold. If I had problems with the ball coming out easily I dumped the mixture back into my bowl, added a mist of water (carefully), mixed well and then tried again.

bath-bomb-7

Cut out about a 10 inch circle of black tissue paper.

bath-bomb-8

Wrap tissue up around your bath bomb and trim if necessary.

bath-bomb-9

Place a silver pipe cleaner in the center and then wrap a shiny red pipe cleaner around the the tissue paper and silver pipe cleaner. Add a tag and you are finished! You might want to write instructions for using the bath bomb on the back of the tag.

bath-bomb-10

The bath bomb worked great. It provided fizz, bubbles and fun for my bath.

Enjoy!
