- NOTE: If you are making these products for sale, good manufacturing practices recommend you wear a hairnet, gloves and a mask. We also recommend a clean apron
- In one of the large bowls, measure and add the Citric Acid, Baking Soda and Coconut Milk Powder. Use a wire whisk to combine the ingredients.
- Weigh the Shea Butter and place in a small bowl. Place in microwave and heat on low until melted.
- Add 1.5 oz. of Apricot Kernel Oil to the melted butter. Stir 0.5 oz. of Blackberry Bramble Tea Fragrance Oil into the oil and melted butter.
- Drizzle the oils and butter into the dry ingredients. Do not pour all in one place. Use the whisk to combine all the ingredients.
- Add 1/8 teaspoon of Amethyst Purple Mica Powder and 0.5 oz. of Pampering Bath Tea dried botanicals. Stir well with wire whisk. Add an additional 1/8 teaspoon of color if a darker shade is desired.
- Once the mixture has been thoroughly blended, (with gloved hands) take some of the mixture and squeeze in the palm of your hand. If the mixture sticks together, it is ready to be molded.
- If the mixture is too dry and crumbly, spritz with rubbing alcohol until mixture sticks together.
- Once mixture is well blended, pack both sides of bath bomb mold tightly with product. Add enough so the tops are mounded over.
- With one mold in each hand, push them together and twist back and forth a few times to remove excess product from around the edges. At this point, you can unmold the top side and brush away any remaining mixture around the lip of the mold.
- If mixture does not stick together, make sure mold edges are free of product and then press together again so sides will stick together. You may need to add more mixture to the middle of the mold, then place together again.
- These need to be pressed together very firmly. Add a little more fizzy mixture to help them stick together or you can also try spritzing the top of mixture with a little rubbing alcohol and then try pressing molds together again.
- Gently tap the top of the mold and carefully remove. You can remove entire bath bomb, brush off any excess from around the seam and replace in the bottom half of the mold. We used our Guest Size Loaf Mold to prop up our bath bombs. This suspended the molds so they did not get a flat bottom. Any narrow box should work for this.
- Continue until all 18 bath bombs have been made.
- Let fizzies harden and dry for 24-48 hours. Unmolding sooner can cause these to crumble and fall apart. If fizzies crumble when unmolded, spritz with alcohol and pat down into mold cavity again.
- After about 48 hours, remove from molds and let dry on a paper towel for 2-3 more days until they are no longer moist to the touch.
- Package 2 in an organza bag.
- Label or use hanging tag with product info.
