HOW DO YOU MAKE DIY BATH BOMBS?
- Begin by measuring out and whisking together your dry ingredients in a large bowl. You can use a coloring pigment (food coloring) for the bath bombs. Since it’s a dry pigment, you’ll want to include that in this step. Add as little or as much as you’d like to achieve the color you prefer.
- Next, in a small cup, mix together the wet ingredients. This is also where you’ll add the essential oils. You can get essential oils almost anywhere these days.
- The next step is very important. You need to add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. You’ll want to do this very slowly, adding little drops at a time while mixing. The citric acid is what causes the bath bombs to fizz when it comes into contact with water. Adding the wet ingredients slowly minimizes this affect, allowing you to create the ball.
- Once mixed, you’re ready to mold. You can use the standard ball mold, or use things like a cupcake pan or silicon mold to achieve different shapes and sizes.
- For the round mold, fill each half, packing it in slightly until it’s overflowing. Then, firmly press the halves together. Let the mold sit for one minute. Once set, tap the mold and pull it apart.
- You’ll want to let the bath bombs dry for at least 24 hours before you create your own mini spa in your tub. It’s that easy!
HOW LONG DO HOMEMADE BATH BOMBS LAST?
