DIY Lush bath bombs!
Me and my little sister were in Lush recently and there was the opportunity for customers to make their own bath bombs for free.
This is what my little sister made, I think she did a good job and when she used her bath bombs she said it was the most amazing explosion of colour, glitter and smells.
As a chemistry teacher I like to also teach my students how to make their own in class and we test out the reactions in water.
Here is my favourite method to making your own bath bomb. You can find most of these ingredients at your local supermarket (look in the baking, home cleaning and beauty sections). Or online at Amazon/eBay.
What you need:
1/2 cup of citric acid
1 cup baking soda
1 tsp water
1/2 Epsom or bath salts
2 tsp essential oil of your choice (I used bergamot and yuzu)
3 tsp olive oil
3-5 drops of Food colouring of your choice
A large plastic or glass bowl
A plastic ball shaped mold
Firstly you get your bowl (not metal as your ingredients could lose their reactivity). And mix all of your dry ingredients together using your whisk.
Then in your jar add the wet ingredients together. And mix together.
Then slowly add a bit if your liquid mixture in to the dry mixture and stir with the whisk each time.
Continue until everything is mixed together and you form a slightly sticky sandy mixture that you can easily clump together.
Wet your hands and grab some of the mixture.
Get your bath bomb shaping mold and pack as much if the mixture in there and shut it tightly.
Leave this to set and dry fit a few hours.
And then it's ready to use!
You can mix a variety of different food colours and essential oils to get different scents to use in different situations. For example: using lemon peel essential oil is great for waking you up and feeling energised or you can use lavender for a calming soothing bath to help you unwind or get you in the mood to sleep.
Have any of you ever made bath bombs? If so what is your favourite combination of essential oils?

When I made my Toasted Almond and Cranberry Cheer body lotion, I never thought it would be as popular as it is. They sell out as soon as they hit the shelves. Now I need 500 of these babies mailed out my the end of the week. #giftbox#tistheseason
