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

Ingredients: 

*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

Recipe

Instructions: 

  1. Using your scales, measure out the bicarbonate of soda and the citric acid into one of your bowls. Mix well to combine both ingredients.
  2. Add 25ml of Cotton Flower fragrance and blend thoroughly using your hands.
  3. Now you should have a fragranced mix of bicarb and citric! Divide this mix equally between your 3 bowls.
  4. 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!
  5. Repeat this with your other two bowls of bath bomb mixture. You should then be left with 3 bowls of  3 different coloured mixtures.
  6. 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:
  7. Grab your mould and press in enough mixture until it’s nice and compact.  Repeat with all your colours.
  8. Leave them in their moulds until they are hard enough to remove and you’re done!
