After the success of my home made toilet bombs I attempted home made bath bombs. I’ve not bought bleach for three months I’m hoping to save money on bath bombs! The citric acid and bicarbonate of soda I think cost 99p from Wilkos, as for the salt b&ms for £3. There was cheaper but I didn’t want the plastic and will reuse the glass jar! So other than my zero waste and less plastic I’m actually saving money.
Now Z loves the lush ones, he loves watching them fizz until they’ve disappeared.
I knew I had the main ingredients from the toilet bombs, the only thing I would need would be Epsom salts and some food colouring to make them pretty!
Lavender bath bombs are a go!
I mixed the citric acid and bicarbonate of soda together, added in the Epsom salt and a few drops of lavender essential oil and a few drops of red food colouring, mixed it well, just needed a few squirts of water as I had the oil and food colouring holding it quite well.
After the few sprays it needed to be put into moulds quickly.
Scooped it in and patted it down with my finger. It all felt quite sturdy.
The next test was Z, of course I choose lavender in the hope that it would make him sleep! It passed the fizz test, and Z was happy he wanted another.
