1 /2 Tablespoon Almond Oil or your favorite oil

1/2 Tablespoon Polysorbate 80

6ml Fragrance Oil  (optional)

Cosmetic Grade Colorants Until your reach your desired shade (optional )

Witch hazel as needed

Items needed:

Spray bottle 

Mixing bowl and measuring spoons

Gloves

Bath Bomb Mold

Clean work area

Instructions:

Step 1: Wipe down and clean your work area. I love using Clorox wipes. They make clean up quick and simple.

Step 2: Mix your dry ingredients together thoroughly. (Baking soda, Citric acid, Magnesium salt, desired colorants  )

Step 3: Mix your wet ingredients together thoroughly (Almond oil, Polysorbate 80, Fragrance – Excluding Witch hazel)

Step 4: Combine dry and wet ingredients (excluding witch hazel) until thoroughly combined.

Step 5: Mist mixture with witch hazel and mix thoroughly 1 spray at a time. Consistency is right when you can form a snowball with your hands and gently drop the ball back into the bowl and it doesn’t crumble apart.

Step 6: Fill each half of the bath bomb molds until full. Stick your thumb into the center of one side and lightly over fill that side until there is a mound of bath bomb dust then gently press both sides together. Do not snap the mold together, the bath bomb should be thick enough that the molds don`t touch.

Step 7: Lightly press on the sides of the bath bomb molds until one half of the mold comes off.

Step 8: Place exposed side of the bath bomb on to a clean surface and gently tap or press on the sides of the other half of the mold to reveal bath bomb.

(Tip: placing  the bath bombs on top of wax paper on top of a fluffy towel is a great way to prevent your bath bombs from getting flat bottoms)

Step 9: Let dry until hard. 24-48 hours depending on the humidity in your area.

Step 10: Soak and enjoy!  🛁
