OUR BATH BOMB KIT-HELPS INCREASE SUCCESS
Bring our factory right into your own home! Our kits are guaranteed fun for you and/or your little one. Each kit makes 4-6, 2.75" bath bombs with your favourite colour and scent. We've altered our own recipe to make it easier to create at home, and is the same recipe we've used to teach so many classes.
Perfect for ages 6 & up. Young children will need an Adult's help. The only things we don't include in our kits are a mixing bowl (which should not be used in the kitchen for food, after making bath bombs), a paint brush for your glitter (optional), and a little bit of patience. Bath bombs can be messy work, so remember to wear old clothes or an apron, and set something down under your work station.
We know that bath bombs are hard to make, so we've added four complete molds into your kit so you can cheat! Leave your mix in the molds to set up for an hour, then carefully remove them from the molds to harden overnight. The only hard part is the waiting!

How to make bath bombs-Step by Step Guide
LETS MAKE A MESS!
Into your bowl
Add your Poly 80, Oil, Colour, and Fragrance. Mix until all the colour is incorporated. The more you mix in this step, the less streaks there will be. When it's really mixed, start adding small amounts of baking soda to make it into a paste.
So far, so good..
Keep adding baking soda, as you mix, you'll see your paste turn into a dough (see above).
Catch up all the bits on the side of the bowl and keep adding baking soda, little by little.
Mix Baking Soda
It'll look like this when you have added all the baking soda. You want to keep mixing, rubbing it between your hands like they're cold- to get rid of any streaks of colour. If you mix well in step one, you won't have as many streaks as I have here.
Almost done mixing
Your batch is ready for the next step! Add your witch hazel at this point, and mix. Once you've done that, add the Citric Acid-pucker up, it smells like sour lemons. Mix until everything is coloured, you should have no white powder.
Glitter goes a long way
Take a top mold from your pile, with a paint brush add a little glitter.
Don't worry, it looks tiny but it'll spread out and be really pretty.
Tap, tap, tap
Tap your mold gently on a surface, the vibration helps the glitter expand and move around evenly. You can also use your brush to help it spread.
Pack a good handful of the mix straight on top of the glitter, don't worry-your glitter won't disappear. Add another handful so you have a nice tall mountain.
Lets make another mountain-Fill a bottom mold so you now have 2 big mountains.
The mountains are very important, they help you make a really solid bomb.
Turn both sides into each other and squish both sides together. Now move your hands in opposite twisting motions until the rim of the Saturn rings touch. You won't need to use a lot of force, it happens naturally as you twist.
What a creation!
Carefully, Remove the top mold but leave the bottom mold on! You'll need it.
You now have a perfect bomb. It's like making a sandcastle!
Beautiful bath bomb!
Set your bath bomb and mold onto a muffin tray/treat cups. Leave for an hour to harden. After the hour, take your bath bomb out of its mold and gently place on a lined tray to dry overnight.
Time to make more!
You still have tons of batch left. Ready to make another? Repeat the previous steps until finished.
If you have any left over, you can use it- sprinkle the left over bath bomb dust into your tub for a foamy surpise. :)
