Makes 20 small bath bombs
- 400g Bicarbonate of soda
- 200g citric acid
- 1tsp dried flowers/herbs/cosmetic glitter
- 15 drops essential oil
Place all the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix with your hands. Add the essential oil and mix well.
Using a small spray bottle, spray the mixture with water and bind together with your hands. Spray and mix one spray at a time until the mixture resembles damp sand and sticks together without fizzing.
Firmly press the mixture into moulds, you can use ice cube trays if you don't have a mould. Allow to set in the fridge for an hour.
If making spherical bombs, sprinkle water on one tray once set, turn out one set and place them on top of the other set to form a ball.
Remove from the fridge and press out of the moulds. Keeps for up to 3 months.
