For Christmas This year I have decided to make baskets of small hand made luxuries for the ladies of my family. The first item I am going to show you is the Lavender Rosemary Bath Bombs. I had a bath bomb book that has lots of recipes a ideas, but really I am just using the basic recipe and modifying it to meet my needs.
For this you will need:
- Plastic Bowl and spoon
- Meausring Spoons and Cups
- Smaller glass bowl
- Spray Bottle with water in it
- Essential Oils – I used Lavender and Rosemary
- Baking Soda
- Epson Salts
- Dead Sea Salt
- Citric Acid
- Corn Starch
1 tsp essential oil
By morning they looked like the below photo. The half I left in a mold stayed good and half round, and the full ball turned out beautifully. However I missed unmolding one of the balls you can see at the very back in the centre and now am unable to get it out. I guess that’s one for me to keep and throw in plastic and all in the bath. The half rounds I had mad had totally fallen flat. I had made these really for my daughter with very little scent to them as she has been having some dry skin and itching issues so the fact that she now has fizzy pancakes isn’t really a big deal. She is 2 and the fizz is all the fun.
This is the ONLY perfect one, which was left elastic tied into its mold for an hour or so before unmolding. I have taken away from this that the next batch I must have more than 1 mold so I can make them all at the same time, probably star with a smaller batch, AND let them set! Unfortunately this photo is not perfectly sharp but I think you can get the idea.
This is one of the half balls I left molded for a half hour before removing.
