Christmas Presents #2 Bath bombs
My version of the bath bomb! I used star cup cake cases and the little mini heart cases which were also very handy for the bath melts. When the citric acid, bicarbonate of soda, rose essential oil, patchouli ess oil and rose hip oil are combined it seems impossible that this mixture will ever be a solid bath bomb. Yet by adding just a littlewater so that the mixture is like damp sand and packing firmly into a mould, leaving to set overnight, they pop out of the mould looking just like shop bought bath bombs. A real feeling of satisfaction comes with it!
I made these handy little gift boxes from card stock and a great you tube tutorial on wedding favour boxes. They are just the right size for a small variety of bath melts and bombs.
Lj and I spent Sunday afternoon filling the boxes with tissue paper, bath bombs and melts. Wrapping in celophane. Making our own little tags and tying it altogether with a little ribbon.
Now we have lots of little gifts ready when we need them over Christmas to say 'thank you' or to bless someone.
