How to make bath bombs easy and quick

Ok. So, whenever I am in a WHSmiths be it for cards or the post office, I am always dram to the craft magazine area. Of course, one time I came home with an entire stack of craft magazines. Some about beading others about how to make DIY beauty products. One idea was making bath bombs.  There is a multitude or recipes around. Some very easy to make with what you already have at home some more elaborate.

So, I scoured the internet for recipes a little more advanced than baking soda and cornflour and a little less complex than the generally beloved lush bath bombs.

I stumbled over a recipe, that seemed easy enough and having tried it several times now, I would say bath bombs are fairly easy to make and the results are quite nice.

What I like with making bath bomb is that I get to play around with essential oils and scents. There are so many combinations for every sort of occasion and with every kind of effect.

Personally, I like all sorts of citrus scents, and I am a big fan of lavender and rose scents. Last week I mixed lavender, eucalyptus and ylang ylang. It made for quite a nice scent.

Some tricks

I press some of the mixture into the forms up to halfway then I fill up both forms and press them. This way I get out some stable balls ready to use.

I mix the dry ingredients and the wet ingredients in separate bowls before mixing the contents of the bowls. I try to be quick while mixing. It takes a while to mix everything thoroughly. Ideally the mixture starts clumping up like wet sand as you press it.

What is your favourite scent in bathroom products?

I am looking forward to reading your comments.
