Bath Bombs Guide
Firstly, wearing gloves weigh out all of your ingredients.
Add the bicarbonate of soda and the citric acid into the mixing bowl. Mix thoroughly until you have a consistent texture.
Next, add in your SLSA and mix well ensuring you get rid of any lumps. SLSA is a very fine powder so be careful when adding and mixing.
For this recipe, we are going to be creating a pink and white patterned bath bomb so you will need to separate about a third of your mixture into a smaller bowl and leave to one side.
Then with your large bowl add in your colour and mix thoroughly.
Before you start building your bath bombs you need to make sure the mixture has a snowball like consistency. From a distance spray your mixture with water and mix until you start to feel the consistency change.
Keep adding small sprays of water until your mixture starts to hold together on its own. Repeat with your white mixture.
Now you can start building your bath bombs. Sprinkle in small amounts of your colours into your mould until you are happy with your desired pattern. Remember the pink is your dominant colour so you will need to fill the middle with the pink.
Make sure you make one-half of your mould slightly higher than the other so when you combine them they slot together easier. Push your two halves together and wipe away any excess.
Next using a flat edge tool gently tap on the mould which will help loosen the bath bomb as you can see then repeat on the other side.
Leave the bath bomb to one side to dry then repeat until you have used all your mixture.
Make sure you leave your bath bombs to dry for at least 24hrs so they are nice and solid then they are ready to use!
