Simple Bath Bombs
This bath bomb recipe is super simple to make, making it a perfect activity to do with kids or whip up as a lovely thoughtful gift for a loved one.
You can fancy these up with dried flowers or sprinkles or even a hidden toy surprise inside. Coloring them with food colorings or natural food powders is an awesome way to take them to that next level too!
Whilst we all think of bath bombs as that generic ball shape you dont have to limit yourself to that. If you have a moon cake press you can make all sorts of fancy patterns and shapes, but if not a simple ice mould can make sweet smaller bombs. Basically if you can press the mixture into the mould firmly and have a way to push it out without causing damage then you can use it to make bath bombs! Even silicone cupcake moulds will work!
No matter how you choose to jazz them up, or if you leave them plain, everyone loves hoping in a nice warm bath and placing that fizzing ball into the water with them! Young or old you’re onto a winner.
