DIRECTIONS

  • Mix together well a small amount of baking soda, food coloring and 10-20 drops of fragrance oil in a bowl.
  • Add this mixture to the remaining baking soda, citric acid, and corn starch (and flower petals, if using).
  • Mix well.
  • Spritz the mixture with water while mixing with your hands.
  • Keep spritzing and mixing until a handful, when squeezed, keeps its shape.
  • DO NOT ADD TOO MUCH WATER.
  • Press the mixture firmly into your mold (try plain 2" round chocolate molds).
  • Do not use molds that are large, nor those that have intricate detail- they will break.
  • Pop out of mold immediately (be careful not to break it.) Let it dry overnight.
  • The bath bomb will grow slightly when drying.
  • Store by wrapping individually, or store in a jar with a tight lid.
