These handmade bath bombs are a little complicated to make, but the end result is amazing - a beautiful looking and smelling bath fizzy. Wrap a few up for gifts or use them with some of our other handmade spa products.
In a small bowl mix the dry ingredients:
2 oz. baking soda
1 oz. citric acid
1 oz. epsom salts
Use your fork to mix the dry ingredients. Make sure to break up any clumps and make the mixture as smooth as possible.
In a separate bowl mix together the wet ingredients:
1/4 t. water
1/2 t. essential oil
1 t. olive oil
a few drops of food coloring
The food coloring will tend to bead when added to the oil. Mix with your fork to incorporate the food coloring and avoid any beads.
SLOWLY, SLOWLY, SLOWLY add the wet ingedients to the dry. You want to add a few drops of the wet at a time and stir. Keep doing this until all of the wet has been incorporated. The mixture should be moist but not wet and the color should be evenly incorporated.
Shape your bath bombs into domes using the 1T measuring spoon
The domes will have to dry for anywhere from 45 minutes to 3 hours before use
