Lavender bath bomb

Formula: 37935

Phase Ingredients for one 100 gr bath bomb Quantity
A sodium bicarbonate 56 gr
A citric acid 28 gr
A white clay 9 gr
A Cocamidopropyl betaine, powder 3,5 gr
B almond oil 2 gr
B lavender essential oil 35 drops
B pure vodka or alcohol of 40-45° 0,5 gr
C lavender flowers for decoration 1-2 gr

Preparation method:

In a bowl, mix the ingredients of phase A well.
Mix the ingredients of phase B in a glass or a small bowl.
Gradually add the phase B mix over phase A, stirring thoroughly in the meantime. In order to obtain a composition that is as homogeneous as possible and without lumps, it will be mixed further with the hands (with gloves).

If you have a rigid PVC mold (the soft silicone one is not optimal), then transfer the composition and press well. Turn the mold over, knock on the top and press lightly to release the product.
If you have a dedicated form for bath bombs then fill the two halves and join them by pressing. Remove the ball from the mold immediately after pressing.

For this recipe we worked with two small glass bowls - which can be found at any hypermarket in the tableware department.
In one of the bowls (or in both) we put dry lavender and then we filled it a little over the capacity, pressing lightly with the palm. We fill the second bowl, press with the palm, then combine the two bowls and press firmly. All the composition must go into the 2 glass bowls. After pressing, lightly tap the bowl from the top, carefully remove it, without twisting, then the other bowl as well.

The bath bombs thus prepared 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.

Options and explanations:

  • instead of the essential oils and vegetable oils from the recipe, others may be used, according to preference
  • alternatives that contain Cocamidopropyl betaine are more frothy and do not leave an oily layer on the tub
  • for coloring, cosmetic pigments can be used, a small amount being included in phase A
  • in order to obtain bright colors, the bath bombs can be colored with the help of dyes from our offer, but only in case of the options that contain vodka/alcohol; one drop is enough for 100 gr of product, included in phase B (it will not dissolve, but it will be able to disperse enough by energetic mixing)
