Yesterday I finally purchased my citric acid for making bath bombs. I have been pinning and pinning and pinning ideas for bath bombs and I finally did it.
Overall here is the recipe for both batches
2 Parts Baking soda
1part citric acid
1part epsom salt
1part corn starch
2.5 tbsp oil (I used grape seed)
1tsp – 2tsp your choosing of essential oil
Water (I used a spray bottle that I usually terrorize my cats with)
Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl, then mix all wet ingredients in another little bowl.
With a whisk, mix the wet into the dry – if it starts fizzing you’re pouring too fast.
The consistency should be that of wet sand, easy to mold and pack.
Pack them into the molds of your choosing and let them stay in there for 10 minutes. ( I did this the second time around and it worked a lot better than the first time)
My first bombs were made for relaxation! For the oils I used lavender, bergamot, and rose water for 1tsp.
Here is my set up…. a bit messy.
Here are my oils and rose water choice!
Packed them with the mix….
Here’s the eggs! Just chillin.
Well, frankly, they fell apart. So when they fell apart I just turned them into Relax Bath Fizz!!
This time I did some of the same things. I used tangerine, grapefruit, sweet orange, and some bergamot. This time I did NOT use the easter eggs. I simply used a cupcake pan! I left them in for 10 minutes and then tapped them out. Worked A LOT better.
AND WE HAVE SUCCESS!!! MWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! If at first you do not succeed, try try again!
