    DIY Festive Bath Bombs Recipe

    Ingredients

    Decoration (optional)

    • Mix together 1 tsp sparkly mica  and 1 tsp Epsom salt

    Method

    1. In a large mixing bowl, add the bi-carb, cornstarch, Epsom salt and citric acid. Mix together thoroughly with a whisk.
    2. Add the spices and essential oils.
    3. Stir the mixture and while you’re stirring, add half the oil. Use your hands to mix and squeeze the mixture together and smooth out any clumps. It should start to resemble wet sand or moist cookie dough. If it seems too dry, add a little  more oil and repeat the mixing process. Don’t use too much oil or the mixture may start to expand and fizz, ruining your batch.
    4. Divide the mixture into equal portions. Take one handful at a time into the palm of your hand and squeeze and mould it into a ball, pressing all around as you go. Carefully place it on a dry tea towel and repeat this process with the rest.
    5. Sprinkle with the sparkly mica mix if using and lightly press it into hold.
    6. Let your DIY bath bombs set overnight to completely air dry.
    7. Store in a sealed airtight glass jar.

    This recipe makes enough for approximately 5 round 100g bath bombs.

    Note: Try to avoid making bath bombs on a hot, humid day as the moisture in the air may cause the bath bombs to expand and fizz prematurely.

    Biome cannot issue a refund if the DIY skin care product, DIY hair care product or DIY body care product you make using our raw DIY ingredients do not perform as you’d hoped. We will, however, offer a refund if the raw DIY ingredient packaging is broken or leaking, or the ingredient itself appears to be ‘off’.

    Before using any raw DIY ingredient for the first time, please first research that ingredient’s potential benefits as well as safety precautions and possible side effects. Check with your medical professional if you have any concerns.

    If you have severe acne, very sensitive skin, or another skin concern or health condition, we recommend seeking medical advice before using any new product on your skin, whether that be a raw ingredient, a DIY product you’ve made yourself, or commercially formulated product.

    Please exercise caution when using essential oils. If you are pregnant or have any kind of health or skin condition, we recommend you speak to your doctor before use. Essential oils are highly concentrated liquids, so use in moderation. Pure essential oils should never be used directly on the skin and should never be ingested. When using an essential oil for the first time, do a skin patch test. Each essential oil is unique and may not be suited to everyone. Please research potential benefits as well as safety precautions before using any essential oil. Some essential oils may interfere with medication.
