You can do this by making adding additional ingredients that provide luxurious skin-loving benefits. I provide several fabulous bath bomb recipes that you can use to create bath bombs for pleasure & profit!
Steps For The Bath Bomb Instructions
1. Gather your ingredients and the items you will need to make the bath bombs. The recipe below is a great starter recipe for you to follow.
2. Wearing your gloves, apply a very thin layer of Cylomethicone to your bath bomb mold. This helps act as a release agent. You can apply it using a cotton ball. Simply wipe some Cylomethicone into the mold with the cotton ball, then gently wipe away any excess. If you do not have Cylomethicone on hand, then you can make the bath bomb, then remove 1/2 of the mold. Allow the bath bomb time to dry in the other half of the mold. I recommend 30 minutes to several hours. You can test to see if it’s ready to remove from the mold, by tilting it into your hand. If it removes easily, then simply set it down elsewhere to dry overnight, then enjoy!
3. Make sure you have a spray bottle filled with witch hazel, on hand, this is the ingredient you will use to bind all of the ingredients together to make the bath bombs. Make sure that the nozzle on the bottle is clear and unclogged to ensure and even spray of the witch hazel.
4. Place all of the dry ingredients in your mixing bowl, and mix thoroughly. You can use a sifter to help ensure that there are no clumps throughout the mix. I personally like to mix a large portion of “base” that consists of nothing but baking soda and citric acid. I can then simply grab some base as I need it, without the need to pre-measure the two ingredients individually. You can store your base, if you choose to make any, in a large plastic or glass container.
Making The Actual Bath Bombs
5. If your recipe calls for other ingredients then add them at this stage. The recipe below calls for a few drops of essential oil, but other recipes may include other ingredients like dried botanicals, butters or other skin-loving products. When adding the ingredients, be sure to mix thoroughly so that all ingredients are evenly incorporated.
6. Now you will need to lightly spritz the mixture with witch hazel. Mix with your hands (wear gloves!!) as you gently spritz the mixture. You will want the mixture to resemble course sand. Not too dry yet not too damp. Just enough to hold it’s shape. This is the part that takes practice, you may encounter a few blunders but remember, Practice Makes Perfect! Keep Trying!
7. Once you have the mixture ready, mound up some of the mixture in each half of the mold. Next, press the two halves together, until that join in the center. You may have to knock excess mixture away from the mold a bit. If so, simply knock it into your bowl, it can still be used.
8. Now gently remove one half of the mold. Place the other half of the mold, with the bath bomb still in it, in a safe place to allow time for it to dry.
9. Once it is fully dry, you can remove it from the mold. Place the bath bomb in another location to allow it to dry for a full 24 hours before you package or use it.
