Recipe Directions

  1. NOTE: If you are making these products for sale, good manufacturing practices recommend you wear a hairnet, glove and a mask. We also recommend a clean apron
  2. In one of the large bowls, weigh the Citric Acid, Baking Soda, Epsom Salts and Coconut Milk Powder. Use a wire whisk to combine the ingredients.
  3. In the small bowl, weigh the Shea Butter and microwave until melted. Place the bowl back on the scale and tare to zero.
  4. Add 1.5 oz. of Apricot Kernel Oil. Stir 0.5 oz. (1 Tablespoon) of Lavender Sage Fragrance Oil into the oil and melted butter.
  5. Pour the oils and butter into the dry ingredients. Do not pour all in one place. Use the whisk to combine all the ingredients.
  6. Place the other large mixing bowl on the scale and tare to zero. Pour 15 oz. of the mixture into the second bowl.
  7. To one of the bowls, add 1/8 tsp. Stained Glass Violet Purple Powder and whisk until evenly colored.
  8. Open and separate all of the Bath Bomb Molds. Lay them out together as sets so they can be easily be picked up and filled.
  9. It takes some practice to use the molds and to get the feel of the mixture to know when it is ready for molding. You can check the mixture by squeezing a small amount in one hand and if it sticks together without crumbling, it should stay together when molded.
  10. Spritz the powders with rubbing alcohol and whisk the white and purple separately to help the powder stick together better. Be careful not to over-spritz or you will start the fizzing action early.
  11. In one half of a Bath Bomb Mold, sprinkle a small amount (about 1/4 tsp.) of Lavender Buds. Gently pack the mold full with the white powder, cleaning off the ringed ridge and leaving a small amount of excess in the middle to stick to the other half.
  12. Repeat this step in the other half of the bath bomb mold with the purple powder and without the added lavender buds. Tightly clamp the two sides of the mold together. DO NOT TWIST THE MOLD HALVES as this will cause the bath bomb seam to break and the two sides will not stick together.
  13. Carefully pull the ends apart to see if the bomb sticks together to form a ball. You can either leave the entire bomb in one half of the mold to dry with the top end open or you can unmold the entire bomb and set on a baking sheet.
  14. If you unmold the entire bomb, be sure to rotate it periodically so that you do not get a flat spot. Try to avoid handling the bomb by the seam until it is fully dried and hard.
  15. You can use the molds as packaging by either taping the seams together with decorative tape or purchasing Shrink Wrap Bands 95 x 55 size.
  16. To Use: Use 1 bomb in a foot bath or 2-3 bombs in a full tub. If you do not want to have the lavender buds floating in the water, place the bomb in a muslin bag, organza bag, or nylon sock before placing it in the water.
