What you will need:
½ cup sodium bicarbonate (baking soda)
2 tbsp. finely ground sea salt
2 ½ tsp. Sweet almond oil/Olive oil
In a glass mixing bowl, Combine all dry ingredients and mix well.
Then Sift through a strainer to prevent any bubbles from forming later on.
Next add your oils.
Next add colorant (optional). I like my bombs a nice natural white but I am going to color them red for this tutorial.
This is going to cause the mixture to pre-fizz, but if you work quickly it should be fine.
After colorant is well mixed, add the Witch hazel. 6-8 squirts of witch hazel should work nicely (depending on where you live, we live in NC)
Hand mix well, and then clamp mixture into the palm of your hand to check consistency. If it holds its shape, it is ready to press into molds.
Pack it firmly into the mold.
Have some fun and make different shapes
Allow the bombs to set in mold for six hours before packaging.
Then have fun!!!
