Another #MakeItMonday, and another year! I hope everyone has come into 2018 happy and healthy, and ready to create! We already have some brilliant makes lined up for you this year, and the first make of each month is going to be the key product from our advertising campaigns.
We are kicking off the year with some simple and classic pastel bath bombs, but we have changed the recipe up slightly from our campaign as we have some new mica’s in stock and I just couldn’t resist testing them out on our first make of the year! Below are all of these new mica’s, and if you click on the image or HERE you can shop them, but today I will be using the Sunset and Apricot.
What You’ll Need:
- A large mixing bowl (and another small one if you’d like to do two colours like us!)
- Large diamond bath bombs moulds
- Kitchen scales
- A hand sprayer containing cold, clean water
- OPTIONAL– Some protective gloves. (Bath bomb mixture can agitate sensitive skin or open cuts.)
- 300g Bicarbonate of Soda
- 100g Citric Acid
- 10ml Fragrance Oil,we used 5ml of Raspberry & 5ml of Apricot and Pear to match our colours!
- Colour- We used two of our new micas, Sunset and Apricot.
How To Make:
Once all of your ingredients are weighed out, mix you Bicarbonate of Soda and Citric Acid together in your large bowl.
If you want to do two separate fragrances like us, it’s time to split half of your mixture into your smaller bowl. You can now add your fragrance oils into your mixture. Blend thoroughly to make sure all of your mixture has some fragrance oil!
Now you can add your Mica. Just add a little at a time, and keep mixing until you get the colour your desire. For a pastel look like we have achieved you will need only a little mica, but if you’d prefer a more vivid colour you can add some more mica.
Now, a little at a time, spritz your with water until you get the ideal consistency for bath bombs, which is just wet enough that it JUST holds together when you give it a squeeze.
Once you have the correct consistency you can start loading your mixture into your moulds, make sure it’s well packed on both sides, and add a little extra mixture to ensure your two halves stick together.
Now remove the smaller mould half and leave them to set for 20-30 minutes, or until they are firm enough to safely remove! Leave them to set out of their mould (preferably overnight) and then they are ready to use!
And that’s it for our first #MakeItMonday of 2018! We hope you love this recipe as much as we do, and we would love to see the pictures of your makes, and suggestions for what makes you would like to see from us this year!
