How to make a bath bomb?

Step 1:

Mix the dry ingredients together (first four on the list). Whisk them well until there are no clumps.

Mix the wet ingredients together and slowly pour them into the dry mix while whisking. You should get a consistent that when you press the mixture together the form should stay. If it crumbles slightly add more wet ingredients, but be careful and don’t add too much.

Step 2:

Take your molds and put the mixture in the two halfs and then press them hard together to get a ball. Slightly knock on the plastic, it should then easy get off.

That’s it! You have a finished bath bomb.

You can put them in muffin molds to make the bath bombs hold better.

Enjoy your bath!
