I don’t know about you but I absolutely LOVE me a bath bomb! After we moved house last year the only downfall was not having a bath, I used to love getting in the tub, watching the crazy bath bomb fizz away while I tucked into a good book! Even though I don’t have a bath anymore my love for bath bombs still remains strong (clearly) and we all know what amazing gifts they make so I thought I would whip up a batch of Halloween themed bath bombs ready for this month! I love the idea of making a different bath bomb each month and collecting them over the year to gift at Christmas, so your gal pals have a different monthly themed bath bomb for the upcoming year! Anyway, for now let’s get cracking on these spooky bath bombs shall we?
YOU WILL NEED: (Makes 10 Bath Bombs*)
2 cups baking soda // 1 cup citric acid // 1 cup cornflour // 6 TBsp Epsom salt // 2 Tbsp coconut oil // Witch hazel (preferably in a spray bottle) // Lavender oil )or scented pure oil of your choice) // Green food colouring // Pink food colouring // Bath bomb moulds //
*Obviously the amount of bath bombs depend on how big your moulds are but this mixture made 10 bath bombs for me, 1 large, 3 medium and 6 small)
First, add all of your dry ingredients (baking soda, citric acid, corn starch, and Epsom salt) into a mixing bowl and give them a good mix up together. Then, pop the coconut oil in the mix and blend together by mixing it with your fingers. You need to do this until there aren’t any clumps of coconut oil left in the mixture.
Add your lavender oil into the mixture, if you’re using a 100% pure oil then you’ll only need around 10 drops, if it’s more of a fragrance oil though you’re going to need to add around 20 drops of it to really get that scent in there!Details
