After sending away for the only ingredient I could not find on hand, the citric acid powder, and a round mold, the experimenting began. My first attempts are NOT pretty.
|Three different recipes|
Yes! This one did anyway. It fizzed, gave off a beautiful orange citrus fragrance, and floated. I really don't care about the floating, but some people apparently do care. The only downside was that I had way too much oil in it. I have a big tub, see:
I made a BIG bath bomb. I think the recipe was meant for making lots of smaller ones. I felt like I was floating in a lovely smelling, ecologically acceptable version of the Valdez spill. On the bright side, my skin looks freaking wonderful. Cleaning the residual oil left in the tub: not wonderful. I'll try using 1/4 of a ball next time.
Will I do it again? For sure. I'm a sucker for bath products, take a lot of baths, and have trouble parting with money as mentioned earlier. Getting the oil situation in control will make mine just as enjoyable as the expensive Lush versions.
