Bath Bombs

Fancy a simple bath bomb to relax and unwind? Using your favourite essential oils you can create your own spa experience right in your bathroom.

Stage 1 (Room temperature)
74% Sodium Bicarbonate
24% Citric Acid

A few drops of Non Water Based (NWB) colours of your choice

You will need some Witch Hazel Hydrolat when moulding the bath bombs as well as some moulds.

Method:

  • Sieve the Sodium Bicarbonate and the Citric Acid into a bowl and mix thoroughly until you have a consistent texture.
  • Add a few drops of the colour and blend through the mixture so that it is even, with no concentrated colour areas.
  • Add the essential oils into the mixture. Certain oils may start the mixture to fizz, so work quickly. Do not leave the mixture to stand or it may start to set hard.
  • Use a little Witch Hazel Flower Water in a plant mister and spray VERY little onto the mix. This is just enough to hold it together and allows you to take a handful and compress it. It should hold the shape of your fist like wet sand would. DO NOT get it too wet.
  • Press it into moulds quickly and if making ball shapes, press two moulds together to form the ball. For the spherical moulds, take one side off to allow the surface to dry slightly.
  • With tray moulds, turn out gently when the top surface has dried a little.
  • They are fragile at this point so handle very gently. Leave in a warm, dry place to harden up. Resist the temptation to handle them.
  • Use cellophane bags to package when they are hard or put small ones into a decorated jar as a gift idea.
  • Wash and dry the moulds thoroughly after use.

Thank you for your enquiry.

Please see the below response from our Research and Development Team;

“Cornflour is sometimes added as it is thought to help the essential oils disperse better, however some people find that it aggravates the natural balance of the vagina and can cause thrush. We have never found it necessary to add cornflour therefore we don’t.”

Hello.
I am wanting to make a couple of bath bombs to put in with my sister’s Christmas present. I found a recipe in a Country Living supplement but it has cornflour in it? Is this just to bulk it up as it didn’t seem right? I love your recipe brilliant.
Many thanks
