This recipe SHOCKS me. I have been buying the 'kits' to make these bombs from Michaels and Hobby Lobby, at about 4 bucks for half the amount! Okay, back to scratch for me!
My daughter made these as Christmas gifts for her friends. She said the recipe was easy to follow and that she had "tons of fun" making them. She wrapped each on in a small square of plastic wrap, tied shut with curling ribbon. She then put them in cellophane bags tied with more curling ribbon. They were so pretty! Her friends were so excited and impressed. It was a nice change from a sweet gift and the price was right too! Heather
This is a very easy project to do with children. I did it without any petals or flowers. In my next batch, I'd do the mixture without the essential oil, fill half the mold, add the essential oil in the middle of the mixture and fill it up. I pressed the mixture in too firmly and ended up with very compact bombs. This batch made 8 bombs (you see only 7 bombs in the photo as the 8th was serving time as a bathroom air-freshener) but the next bath will probably yield 12. The bombs measure approx. 1 3/4 and 1 inches. I used plastic jelly molds. Thanks for posting this!
