LAVENDER BATH BOMB
Makes 7 medium sized Bath Bombs
1 1/4 cups cup of Baking soda or Bicarbonate of Soda
1/2 cup of Citric acid
2 -6 tsp of Almond Oil or Apricot oil
1/4 cup of Dried lavender
1/2-2 tbs Water
5 drops of food coloring(optional)
10-15 drops of Lavender fragrance oil or essential oil
Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl and stir until well mixed.
Drizzle in the almond oil and stir until mixture is moistened. Add more oil and fragrance and stir until well mixed.
If the mixture is crumbly then add more oil or a dash of water.
Roll the mixture into a ball using your hands or press it into a lightly oiled mold. Use a bath bomb mold or a chocolate mold or whatever you like. I used those little silicone cupcake molds.
Let it gently slip out from the mold and then put the ball or shape on a sheet of wax paper and leave it to dry till it is hard.
*It may take several hours to dry. I like to let the dry for a day or so just to be sure.
* Also I found that the first time I used the bath bomb little lavender flowers got all over the tub, which was ok with me but after that I have put these in a pretty organza drawstring bag and tossed it in the tub so the lavender won't clog the drain.
To use: Run a bath. Once the bath is ready, drop in the bath bomb and enjoy the fizzy fragrant little bit of luxury!
Store them in an airtight container.
Use 1 Bath bomb per bath.
