Bath Bomb Recipe

Nothing beats a relaxing bath with a scented, gently fizzing bath bomb thrown in.  Add a glass of bubbly and some candles for the complete package.

Bath Bombs



1 1/2 cups bi-Carbonate of Soda
½ cup citric acid
Cocoa butter
Powder colour
Flowers if desired
Water in spray bottle
Bath bomb mould


Mix bi-carbonate of soda and citric acid together in a large bowl. Break up any lumps that may be present.

Add colour and fragrance to bowl and mix well. Take ½ cup of mixture and place in a smaller bowl.

Using a vegetable peeler, scrape a little cocoa butter into the bowl and mix well. If desired, place a small quantity of flowers into the mould. Spray mix with water and combine all ingredients quickly to reduce fizzing. Mix needs to be the consistency of damp sand.

Pack ½ the mould with the mix and press down firmly. Fill the remainder of mould, compress and level off the top evenly. Continue until all mix has been used.
