Blackcurrant and Rose Petal Skull Bath Bombs

Just in time for Halloween and the ‘Day of the Dead’ Festival, this #makeit is a re-fresh on last year’s ‘Loaded Bath Bomb’ recipe that showcases our popular skull bath bomb mould. We’ve had some recent feedback asking us to demonstrate how to use our 2 piece plastic moulds, so hopefully our re-vamped step by step guide below will show you the TSK method!

These gorgeous bath bombs make great alternative gifts for Halloween enthusiasts!

What you need:

Ingredients:

  1. 600g Bicarbonate of soda
  2. 200g Citric acid
  3. 25ml Blackcurrant and Pomegranate fragrance
  4. Black coated mica
  5. Rose Petals

Method:

Step 1

Measure out the bicarb and citric into a bowl.

Step 2

Add 25ml of fragrance. Use your hands to blend the fragrance in to the bicarb and citric. Mix thoroughly and work away any lumps that may have formed.

 

Step 3

Use a teaspoon to add the Black pigment. Add a small amount at a time to determine how dark you would like your bath bombs.

Step 4

Give everything a good mix with your hands to ensure the fragrance and colour pigment has completely blended in.

 

Step 5

grab your bath bomb mixture and using the hand sprayer, a little at a time and working the mixture as you. Make sure you 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 6

Place your rose petals in to the forehead section of your mould.

 

Step 7

Now fill the rest of each half of your mould just proud of the surface and press together for a few moments. You canĀ  move and adjust the mould halves whilst holding them both together to ensure that they are both aligned.

 

 

Step 8

Tidy up the edges and leave the skull bath bomb to dry in it’s mould until it is completely solid.
