NON-TOXIC BATH BOMBS
The desperate requests from my daughter to make home made slime in recent months has been relentless. I found the whole experience very difficult. The products that are needed to make slime (as demonstrated on countless YouTube channels) are products I refuse to have in my house, let alone want my kids to play with! We attempted as best we could to make the most natural version without success. In the end, I bought the most beautiful lemon scented yellow organic play dough and we conceded that this was the better option.
Then my scrumptious daughter began asking me if we could make our own bath bombs! My first instinct was to say nope, no way, no more toxins or experimenting to make something that just disappoints us both. Then I found myself buying her very expensive bath bombs from a very popular store that makes more ‘natural’ bath products. They are by no-means organic and the prices are high! I finally had enough and researched on how we can make our own bath bombs in the most natural organic way possible.
There are countless bath bomb options on Pinterest, everything you can imagine from chocolate to champagne. We took a little from a lot of recipes and played around all weekend making an enormous, gorgeous mess. We eventually had more bombs than we could ever need and a recipe that works!
If you are looking for a wonderful activity to do with the kids this is brilliant!
- 1 cup Bi-Carb Soda (Aluminum Free)
- 1/2 cup Arrowroot (Aluminum Free)
- 3 tbs Epsom Salt
- 1/2 cup Citric Acid
- 1 tbs Sweet Almond Oil
- Essential Oil of your choice around 15 drops
- (there are numerous organic essential oils available, we used lemon)
- Silicone mold of your choice
- In a large bowl (not plastic) combine the bi-carb soda, arrowroot, epsom salt, citric acid and mix well.
- Add the almond oil and essential oil, mix well with a metal spoon.
- Gather a small handful of the mixture and shape into a ball to see if it holds it shape. If it easily falls apart add a few more drops of almond oil to the mixture and re-test.
- Add the mixture to your silicone mold, pressing very firmly as you go.
- Allow the bath bombs to dry over night before removing them from your mold.
- We used a standard silicone muffin mold to make our bath bombs.
- We also added edible fresh flowers to the base of the molds prior to adding the mix.
