Homemade Bath Bombs Tutorial
Combine all ingredients except for water in a large bowl until mixture is crumbly and well mixed.
Lightly spray your mixture with water, stirring constantly with your hands just until it holds shape when squeezed tightly. Water must be added very slowly to avoid over-wetting it, if your mixture gets too wet it will set off the reaction and begin fizzing.
To make homemade bath bombs, press mixture into mold firmly, using the back of a spoon to firmly tamp it down. Silicone molds are the easiest to use for removal and clean up but you can use any mold you have on hand or even a small paper cup. If you want a ball shaped bath bomb, you should use snap together dome molds.
Allow to dry for several hours or overnight.
Gently remove your homemade bath bombs from the mold and place them in a jar with a tight fitting lid, keep them dry until ready to use. It is as easy as that!
To use: drop 1 or 2 bath bombs depending on the size mold you used into a warm bath and enjoy the fizz and scents. Soak for 20 minutes at least to get the most benefit.
