Now lets talk bath bombs

Who doesn't love a bath bomb? Kids especially love fizzy bath bombs! But who wants their kids soaking in a bath tub filled with heavy fragrances and foaming agents? Not me. So I have created the perfect recipe to create fizzy bath bombs using only natural, food grade and eco-friendly ingredients. 

Bath Bomb Supplies

To my Eco Creatives members, you will not have to run around the shops looking for your goods, all of what you need is in your Eco Creatives Box ready to go. I have also added an ingredient and recipe card below so you can continue to create bath bombs with your moulds.

What's included in the Eco Creatives Box:

- Metal bath bomb mould
- Metal mini whisk
- Natural bath bomb powder, enough to make 4 bath bombs
- Dried botanicals

Bath Bomb Steps

Making bath bombs is simple, but if you get the simple steps wrong, it goes really wrong.

The trick is to use the smallest amount of water as you can. Too wet, and it will fizz up before it even enters the mould, too dry and it will crumble. 

Step One: Pour the bath bomb powder into a bowl. Use your hands, whisk or a sieve to get rid of any lumps.

Step Two: Fill a cup with water. 

Step Three: Use your whisk to slowly add water to you powder by dipping the whisk into the water and then mixing the powder well. If you add too much water or pour the water directly into the powder it will activate the fizz too soon and will spoil your bath bomb. 

If you would like to add some essential oil to your bath bombs, now is the time. Add 3-5 drops, mixing the powder between every drop.

Step Four: Keep adding water just until it can start to hold its shape.

Step Five: Place a big pinch of your dried botanicals in one side of your mould. 

Step Six: Then fill each side of your mould, packing the mix in firmly but not too tight. If it's packed too tight, it won't fizz as much. Over fill both sides so you have excess powder on top .

Step Seven: Hold one mould in each hand and push them together firmly, slightly turning the moulds side to side pushing the excess powder out.

Step Eight: To take your bath bombs out, use a spoon and gently tap around the mould. Then carefully pull the moulds apart. If it falls apart, don't worry, just repeat steps 5 to 8.

It is best to leave the bath bombs to dry for 24 hours, but if you can't get the kids to wait that long, then let them go for it. It will fizz more the longer you leave it though.
