Meet the newest addition to my soap toolbox. Well, not exactly soap but in that general area. They are molds for making bath bombs.
I've got tons of molds but I saw a video of someone using these pricey ones and had to try them.
I wasn't much of a fan of bath bombs to tell you the truth but when I was in my holiday funk I found a good soak and a good cry worked wonders. I made myself a batch of lavender scented ones and now I can't stop using them.
In case you are wondering, those packets they are sitting on are to absorb moisture. You don't want your bombs fizzing from the humidity if you keep them in the bathroom like I do.
They are an easy project. Basically they start here and then you add whatever fragrance, oils or color you want. I like to also add Epsom salts, powdered coconut milk and kaolin clay.
I tested out the new mold with a honeysuckle recipe. Daughter's been going through a rough patch as all ice skating coaches do at this time of year and her favorite fragrance is honeysuckle. I added some pink Himalayan salt to make them have some sparkle.
I have to go kitty sit for her this weekend while she heads to Detroit for Nationals with some of her skating team to cheer on some rink friends who made it all the way to seniors in ice dancing. I'm going to leave these in her bathroom as a surprise. After a weekend chaperoning she may also need a good soak and a cry.
