Effervescent, emollient bath bombs

Effervescent, emollient bath bombs

Formula: 37931

Phase Ingredients for 3 small balls Quantity
A sodium bicarbonate 56 gr
A citric acid 28 gr
A corn starch 10 gr
B lysolecithin 5 gr
B lavender essential oil 35 drops
C lavender flowers  2-3 gr

Sanitize the dedicated containers and utensils you will work with, details in the general safety guidelines.

Preparation method:
In a bowl, mix the ingredients of phase A well.
Add the lysolecithin and the essential oil, and mix thoroughly. To obtain a homogeneous composition, it can be mixed further with the hands (with gloves).

If you have a rigid mold (the soft silicone one is not optimal), then transfer the composition and press well. In 3-4 hours they can be removed from the mold.
If you have a dedicated mold for bath bombs then fill the two halves, and join them by pressing. 
For this recipe we worked without a mold, forming 3 smaller balls with our hands: one third of the prepared amount is placed in the palm, tightened firmly and shaped, compacting the ball as well as possible; it requires a little patience and skill.

The balls are left to dry in a warm and dry place. The next day they can be put in a glass jar or wrapped in foil.

Bath bombs are very popular and can be prepared in various shapes and colors. They can be decorated and perfumed according to your preferences. Depending on the size of the bombs and the tub, use a larger piece or 2-3 smaller balls. Due to the lysolecithin and corn starch, the bath water will have a milky appearance and will be foamy for a longer time.

Other essential oils can be used instead of lavender essential oil, depending on your preferences and properties. Instead of lavender flowers you can use other dried plants or petals, or you can omit this ingredient from the recipe.
