Put a small amount of your liquid mixture to your dry ingredients and mix it thoroughly. Mix until all the liquid has been absorbed by your dry ingredients. Continue adding small amounts of the liquid mixture until you’ve used it all up.
Now that you’ve mixed all the ingredients together, time to put it in the mold. Put a little more than what your mold can hold on both sides and press them together until it clips. You’d want to put more so your mixture get pressed together making it solid.
Once it’s pressed, gently tap it with a spoon to loosen your bath bomb.
Let your creation dry for 1-2 days. And you’re done!
Wasn’t that fun and easy. You can make it in different colors and different shapes. Have fun with it. Mix in different colors in your mold to make a galaxy bath bomb. Another tip, you can also add rose petals so when the bomb explodes, you’ll get a nice flower bath too. How cool is that?!
