Hello lovelies, welcome back to my page. Today I wanted to share with you our way of making bath bombs at home, now I we all love Lush bath bombs or at least my family does. So I thought about how we could make them at home and it be a fun exercise for my daughters to be involved in too. I found this recipe which is fantastic it really works a treat and my girls love getting involved.
Homemade Bath Bombs:
Here’s what you will need:
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1/2 cup citric acid
- 1/2 cup epsom salt
- 1/2 cup cornstarch
- Coloring pigment, optional
- 2 1/2 tablespoons almond oil (or melted coconut oil)
- 3/4 tablespoon water
- 12-15 drops essential oil
- Bath bomb molds or cupcake tins
- In a medium bowl, mix together all of the dry ingredients. Add as much or as little color pigment to achieve desired look. Whisk to combine.
- In a separate small bowl, mix together the wet ingredients.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry ones very slowly. (This is very important; otherwise you will activate the citric acid which is used to create the fizzing affect.) Mix until combined, and the ingredients look like wet sand.
- Fill each half of the mold, packing the mixture in slightly until it’s overflowing. Press the halves together firmly. Let the filled mold sit for one minute. Lightly tap the mold and gently pull it apart to remove the bath bomb. If you’re using the baking tin fill each mould, pack in tightly let it it for one minute then tip them out. Let the bath bombs dry for 24 hours before enjoying in the tub.
These bath bombs are absolutely fantastic, you can make them in an array of colours and smells and brings a whole new element of fun to bath time with your children.
