How to make bath bombs


Step 1

Add the dry ingredients into the mixing bowl and combine together.

Step 2

Add a splash of water and continue to mix. Continue to add the water sparingly until the mixture starts to combine together and form a dough-like consistency.

Your mix should still be slightly powdery but able to compact and stay together.

Top tip

It’s a good idea to have a bit of sodium bicarbonate and citric acid pre-mixed separately, just in case you add too much water and you need the mixture to be dryer.


Step 3

Tightly pack the mixture into your moulds. Shropshire petals used old Christmas baubles to make round bath bombs.

Step 4

Press the two halves together and give them a good squeeze, so they join together.


Step 5

Leave the mixture in the moulds for about half an hour, then they should then be dry enough to come out of the moulds. Then leave them for 24 hours to dry out properly.

Step 6

Wrap in pretty tissue paper or clear cellophane and place in a gift box ready to give your guests or favourite girls on your big day.

For an extra-special touch try adding a small amount of lavender or rose oil to the mixture or even some natural food colouring to make coloured bath bombs.
