3 Cups Baking Soda
1 1/2 Cups Citric Acid
1/2 Cup Cornflour
1/4 Cup Kaolin Clay
4 Tespoons SLSa (some people are allergic/sensitive to this and you can omit it but your bombs wont turn into bubble bath without it they’ll be plain bombs)
Essential Oils (next on my list to try is a chocolate and coconut scented one) or/ 1 1/2 Tablespoons of cosmetic fragrance oil
6 Tablespoons of a good light carrier oil (i’m using grapeseed and apricot kernel at the moment)
Spritz with a sterile water (witch hazel water or actual distilled water if you have it somehow) to help it moisten for pressing into the mold you choose to use.
Put in the hot water cupboard overnight to dry out then gently take out of the molds and ice
Use a royal icing like below (remember to halve or quarter it):
3 eggs whites room temperature
1 pound powdered sugar (confectioners)
1 teaspoon cream of tarter
Combine ingredients, beat at high speed 7-10 minutes. pipe it on like you do with read cupcakes and then wait as it magically goes hard over the next hour or so.
Put on the label to toss out the frosting before putting the bomb in the bath as sugar in baths may cause irritation and or yeast infections, careful with which oils you choose if using essentials, cinnamon for a simple example can cause serious heat up of skin and could result in burns if overdosed.
I half this recipe and use mini cupcake silicone molds, place them in the hot water cupboard overnight then transfer into patty casings and ice the next day.
Box up using my envelope punch board window box tutorial in packs of two’s but hated how labor some it was so went with baggies instead
Found several recipes online and youtube so this was a result of those combined haha
I found the cheapest place to get all the ingredients was my massage supplies company, they’re based in Kaiapoi, Chch, NZ and have all this stuff listed on their trademe account but not on their website http://www.trademe.co.nz/Members/Profile.aspx?member=1850997
Next recipe coming soon is my body massage melts, going to do a sports one and an insomnia one 🙂
Still playing with packaging… I want a two piece baggie but this turned out sized for three… (doubled the large baggie on the punch board e.g paper increased to 12” x 6” instead of 6×6)
Need….. to go to bed so will try and do a 1.5 size of the large baggie to fit the two nicely
