Teddy Bear Bath Bombs – Baby Shower Favours
There must be a baby boom at the moment because all we see is bumps, scans and congratulations posts online, and then not to mention a couple of grandparents-to-be here at TSK! This calls for a baby themed #MIM and we are always looking for ideas for ways to introduce new moulds to our fabulous customers.
Our new, simple and very sweet teddy bear bath bomb mould is a wonderful DIY creation that will make lovely gifts for any friends and family that will be sharing this joyous moment with you. Make these for a baby shower as guest favours or use this idea to reveal to your loved ones what gender the new addition will be!
What you need:
- Accurate scales
- 3 bowls
- Measuring utensils
- 3 x teddy bear bath bomb mould
- Water spray bottle
*Makes roughly 6 bath bombs*
- 600g Bicarbonate of soda
- 200g Citric acid
- 25ml Cotton Flower fragrance
- Coated micas – Caribbean yellow, Ocean blue and Passion pink
- Using your scales, measure out the bicarbonate of soda and the citric acid into one of your bowls. Mix well to combine both ingredients.
- Add 25ml of Cotton Flower fragrance and blend thoroughly using your hands.
- Now you should have a fragranced mix of bicarb and citric! Divide this mix equally between your 3 bowls.
- Next, a little pinch at a time, add one of the coated mica colourants to one of your bowls of the mixture. By doing this a little a time, you can determine how bright you want your bath bombs to be. We kept our’s very pastel which required just a small pinch of colourant. Feel free to go as vibrant as you want!
- Repeat this with your other two bowls of bath bomb mixture. You should then be left with 3 bowls of 3 different coloured mixtures.
- Using your water spray bottle, give each bowl a spray or two as required. *ONLY ADD ENOUGH WATER TO HAVE THE MIXTURE START TO HOLD TOGETHER WHEN LIGHTLY SQUEEZED IN YOUR HAND* If you have difficulties determining the right amount of water you need for the perfect bath bomb, follow this link for a visual direction:
- Grab your mould and press in enough mixture until it’s nice and compact. Repeat with all your colours.
- Leave them in their moulds until they are hard enough to remove and you’re done!
