Method:

Step 1: Measure out the citric and bicarb in to a bowl.

Step 4: Add 1 heaped tsp of cocoa powder for colouring your gingerbread men.

Step 5: Roughly add 1 tsp of ground nutshell and mix in.

Step 6: Mix up everything your bowl ensuring that all the colour and fragrance has blended in well.

Step 7: Now, a little at a time and working the mixture all the time, spray a little water on it with the hand sprayer. Mix continuously to avoid it fizzing-up in the bowl and ONLY ADD ENOUGH WATER TO HAVE THE MIXTURE START TO HOLD TOGETHER WHEN LIGHTLY SQUEEZED IN YOUR HAND

Step 8: Start filling your mould, ensure it is nice and compact in order to create a good hard and solid bath bomb.

Step 9: Fill all your moulds until all the mixture has been used up, this recipe should make 4 gingerbread men.

Step 10: Leave to harden, over night is best.
