    Abby Girl's Note:

    I love "bath stuff"!!! I have been making bombs professionaly for years and these will surpass any commercial bombs, by far!!! They are well worth the effort if you can get the butters. These bombs come together quite easy....it just takes practice (and good molds). They are wonderful on tired, dried out skin....and if you are using essential oils, you will be in "pure heaven"!!! I created this recipe with all my favorite ingredients in mind and came up with these.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    half ba ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      To make bath bombs successfully, have ingredients ready to mix. Choose your moulds carefully and have, at least, 2 molds ready for filling. Read the instructions first so you know what you are doing. Carefully measure out the wet ingredients (if you have too much, you will end up with "slop", and, if that is the case, just dry the product out and leave it loose (it will still work!).
    2. 2
      To Start: Combine the baking soda, citric acid, cornstarch and powder milk.
    3. 3
      Melt the shea buter, warm honey and oil in a microwave safe measuring cup or over low heat in a small pot. Add to the baking soda mixture. Combine the mixture and add the essential oils. Mix well. Mixture should hold together when you make a ball.
    4. 4
      Working quickly, press the mixture FIRMLY into your mold, making sure the edges are clean. Leave the mixture in to the mold for a couple of minutes, then pop out. While one tray is drying, work on the other (I put a small cutting board over top of the mold, flip over, then lift the mold off). Let bombs dry overnight. Once dried, place them in a decorative bag and tie with ribbon.
    5. 5
      To use: Drop 1 - 2 bombs into your tub and relax.
    6. 6
      ~Or~ leave the mixture in the mixing bowl for 24 hours, periodically mixing the ingredients, breaking up the clumps. Once the product has dried out, place in a nice decorative bag with a colourful ribbon. Makes nice gifts.
    7. 7
      Helpful Hints: I have used large ice cube trays that I use just for bath bombs. When picking a mould you want something that is not too big (you end up wasting product) and soft edges (the bombs end up too fragile with sharp angles). When the bombs are in the molds, and I have pressed firmly down, I will run a sharp knife along the bottom of the mold to get a clean, flat edge. You can put lavender flowers, rose petals, etc in your mixture, but sometimes it ends up clogging your drains, so think carefully about what you are putting in the bombs -- if you put too much dried fowers in the bomb may not come together.
    8. 8
      Commercial bombs have lots of hidden ingredients it them that are not necessarly good for the skin, like Sodium Laurel Sulphite -- which gives you the "bubbling action" You get nice bubbles, but this product (in its raw state) will actually burn the skin.

      Very nice bath bombs. I used a shea butter that also had avocado, cocoa, jojoba etc - it was a firm butter that melted nicely. I also used a smidgen of coconut oil. In one batch I used EO peppermint, and in another I used vanilla extract and a little gold soap shimmer (found at Micheals in the soap making section). If you find that your mixture is too dry just give it a couple spritzes of water - just so the mist moistens it a little then quickely mix again and mold. thanks for sharing a great recipe.

      These are fabulous, so much better than the commercially-made ones you pay $5 for. The shea butter and other moisturizing ingredients are wonderful for dry skin. I gave a bunch last year as gifts and they were a hit; am getting ready to make more. These are pretty easy to put together, although I recommend experimenting if you use essential oils as some are more potent than others and may require more or less than the recipe says. I found that molding them is quite labor-intensive, so this year I'm just going to package the mixture loose in decorative jars. Thanks Abby Girl!

      These turned out wonderful. I used the milk and honey fragrance oil and the smell itself was great, but the bombs made the bath water (and my skin) feel so silky. Molded them in muffin tins and they came out perfect. I will definitely make these again.
