- Protective clothing such as gloves and googles should be worn at all times when handling chemicals.
- Before you start, it’s a good idea to carry out a patch test.
- Always store chemicals out of reach of pets and children.
The “Shopping List”:
- 2 cups of Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate
- 1 cup of Citric Acid
- 3 tsp of Epsom Salts (Magnesium Sulphate Heptahydrate 99.5%)
- 6ml of Lavender Essential Oil
- Dried Lavender
- 4 drops of Witch Hazel
- Bath Bomb Mould
In a clean dry bowl, measure 2 cups of Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate and 1 cup of Citric Acid.
Mix in the Epsom Salts.
Add 6ml of Lavender Essential Oil. Work the fragrance through the powder mixture. Try and avoid as many clumps as possible.
Split the mixture in half. *Top Tip: Make sure the bowls you have chosen have enough room to mix by hand*
Add 4 drops of witch hazel. Rub the witch hazel through the powder. Squeeze the powder in your hand to see if it holds its shape. If it does not, add another drop of witch hazel and repeat until it does. *Please note – avoid adding too much witch hazel as it will set the bath bomb into a bubbling reaction*
Take one half of the bath bomb mould and place some dried lavender at the bottom. Gently pack in the mixture and repeat until one half of the mould is full. Do the same thing to the other side of the mould.
Firmly press the two halves together while twisting. Make sure the interlocking seals are clear of any bath bomb mixture so they can click together. If they don’t push fully together, you can add another pinch of mix between the two halves. If your bath bomb mould is not clicking together, this may be if some mixture is stuck in between the mould.
Allow to dry for 24 hours.
Now your Relaxing Lavender Bath Bombs are ready, store in a jar and gift APC’s “Pure”ly Handmade Mother’s Day Gift!
To use – you can either crumble a bit of the bath bomb in your bath, or drop the whole thing in and watch it fizz!
