Method:

  1. Sift the bicarbonate of soda and citric acid twice into a bowl and stir well to combine. Measure half a cup of this mixture, and transfer it to a separate bowl and set aside.
  2. In a small cup, add six to ten drops of the essential oil of choice 1/2 tablespoon of the sweet almond oil and 10 – 12 drops of the food colouring of your choice. Mix the liquid well to combine.
  3. Add it to the half a cup of set aside mixture and stir quickly to prevent the mixture ‘fizzing’. Put on your rubber gloves and work the mixture to evenly distribute the colour. Use a little of the sweet almond oil to grease the moulds and press the half a cup of mixture well into the mould.
  4. Repeat this method again only working with 1/2 cup of the mixture at a time until finished.
  5. Let the bath bombs ‘mature’ for 36 hours or so in a dry place and then very carefully tip them upside down to remove them from the moulds.  Wrap them in cellophane or similar and decorate with a ribbon.
  6. Doing only half a cup at a time may seem fiddly, but then you can make four different colours and scents.
