Steps for Creating Bath Bombs

Mix all dry ingredients in the bowl by using a fork, and make sure there are no lumps left. You can add your dried lavender or any other herb you want to make your bombs fragrant.

In your glass jar, combine all wet ingredients.

To color your bombs, add at least 2 drops of food coloring to the jar and mix well.

Slowly pour your wet mixture to the bowl while whisking at the same time. If a foam or fizz forms, do it more slowly.

Test it and try to squeeze the mixture into your hands. If it still doesn’t hold together, add more water.

Mold your bath bombs into a baking sheet and let them stay overnight.

Once your bath bombs are all dried up, you can keep them in a jar.

Now, you have gifts to give during special occasions!
