Making your own bath bombs is very simple and uses very safe ingredients, so it is suitable for supervised activities with quite young children. Just remember that citric acid will sting if it gets into cuts or scratches and will also be very irritating to the eyes, so if working with children be sure to take care in this respect and make sure no child rubs their eyes with hands just in contact with the citric acid.
EQUIPMENT YOU’LL NEED…..
1) A large mixing bowl
2) Suitable moulds to shape the bath bombs
3) Kitchen scales
4) A hand sprayer containing clean cold water
300g Bicarbonate of Soda
100g Citric Acid
10ml Fragrance or Essential Oil of your choice
Colour (most food/cosmetic/soap liquid colours are fine. Also powders i.e. ultramarines (not blue) or oxides)
Our busy lives often dictate the choices we make, especially when it comes to days of celebration and thanks. Unfortunately that can often involve a rushed trip down to Tescos or Asda to pick up a bagful of overpriced chocolates and generic gifts labeled ‘mother’s day ideas’. This year why not try something new & creative that will not only really impress your mum but probably help you save a few quid at the same time.
As you may have noticed we are massive fans of blueberries here at beauty naturale and we thought that one last celebration of the nations favourite super-fruit would not go a miss. Check out below for a fantastic recipe for that mothers day gift!
