Make your own - Bath Bombs (again!)

We know you've probably seen this before, but in honour of Christmas we thought we'd share our most popular gift making idea ever. These bath bombs are so easy to make, and are a fantastic, home made gift. They're also great for relaxing after a hard day's Christmas shopping!

Ingredients:

  • Witch Hazel Water
  • Bicarbonate of Soda
  • Citric Acid
  • Essential Oil (we like lavender for an extra soothing bath, but anything you like will work!)
  • Dried herbs, petals, flowers or food colouring (again, lavender flowers are it for us)



    Moulds:

    We've got the kind of house that always has kids running around, and of course that means kids toys everywhere - so we used a plastic ball pit ball, cut in half (ingenious, we know) as our mould. But you can use anything that has the shape you like - ice cube trays, cupcake tins, whatever you've got lying around.

    Directions:

    1. Combine equal amounts of citric acid and bicarbonate of soda.
    2. Add a few drops of the essential oil of your choice, plus any flowers or colouring you’re using & mix thoroughly.
    3. Sparingly add Witch Hazel Water (a few drops at a time) until the mixture is just damp enough to hold its shape when compressed. Go easy on adding the liquid- if you add too much the mixture will do all its fizzing in your bowl instead of your bath!
    4. Pack the mixture firmly into both halves of your mould, then push together to join. (If using an ice cube tray or similar, just make sure to compress the mixture into the mould so it doesn't all fall apart when you take it out).
    5. Allow to set for at least 2 hours before removing from the mould.
    6. If your bomb falls apart when you remove it from your mould, it’s probably too dry- put the mixture back in a bowl and add a few more drops of Witch Hazel water.
    7. Package in some cellophane with ribbon as a gorgeous home made gift - or spoil yourself and get that bath running!
