My wife is taking the Bar today. She is super stressed out about it, so I thought she could use a nice relaxing bath when she comes home. We usually get bath stuff from Lush, but there isn’t one in Park Slope. No time to go into the city today. I wonder if Instructables can help?
I find a tutorial on how to make bath bombs it seems fairly simple and I can get all the ingredients on my way to the grocery store.
We belong to the Co-Op in Brooklyn and they have dried rose buds and a loose lemon ginger green tea. My wife loves that combination, so I am going to use those fragrances for her bomb.
A few side notes and adjustments.
*Too much humidity might be a factor in not making mixture work. It’s rainy today, so this might not work. My apartment gets very dry in the winter, so I am hoping that it will balance the humidity.
*Instead of using the oils, I use shea butter. I think it going to be nicer than vegetable oil.
*Once the bombs are made I am going to coat them in the tea and rose pedals
First I measure and combine the dry ingredients and mix them together.
Now for the wet stuff.
I add 1 teaspoon at time to avoid volcanoes
The mixture feels a bit dry and is not as fragrant as I want it.
I add an extra ½ tsp of the lemon and rose oil. This does not help, so I add more water and shea butter until I get the consistency of damp sand. I add the rose pedals and lemon ginger green tea.
I shape the mixture into balls
and add some finishing touches.
