This recipe is best prepared in non-humid climates.
Before you start, clean and sanitize your work area as well as all of your packaging materials. We also suggest wearing gloves, protective clothing, and a hair net while creating this bath fizzy recipe. In addition, prepare your spray bottle, filling it with witch hazel.
Step 1: Begin by weighing out the baking soda and citric acid in a deep mixing bowl. Blend the ingredients together. Then, add 6 grams of the Crystal Amber Fragrance Oil and incorporate the fragrance fully and evenly.
Step 2: Separate the mixture. Place 450 grams of the mixture into a deep mixing bowl. Set aside the remaining mixture, it will remain white. In the deep mixing bowl add the activated charcoal and black oxide FUN Soap Colorant. Mix.
Step 3: Spray the mixture with witch hazel and mix. Continue spraying and mixing until you have a crumbly dough consistency.
Step 4: Next, you will need the bath bomb molds. We will not be filling the molds, instead we will be using 11 halves. Place them in front of you.
Step 5: Begin filling the molds. You do not want to fill the molds completely. You need to create a bowl shape so that it is hollow in the center and can be filled with salt in a later step. Each mold will need about 30-45 grams of the black mixture.
Step 6: At this time, you will need the white mixture you set aside earlier. Spray with witch hazel and mix until you have a crumbly dough-like consistency. Fill each mold with about 10-15 grams in the same manner you did with the black mixture. Once again, you want to maintain a bowl shape.
Step 7: Prepare the Epsom salt. You will need the three Ziploc bags. Place 60 grams of Epsom salt in each bag. Add one of the colorants and Crystal Amber Fragrance Oil as listed above to each bag. You can also add some mica powder to each bag for some sparkle. Seal each bag and shake to mix the contents.
Step 8: Melt the coconut oil. Once melted, place about 15 grams of the coconut oil in the center of the bath bomb. Then, add some of the yellow salt. Next, add a little of the light red-orange salt. Then, in the very center, add the darkest colored red-orange salt. When you are finished you should have rings of color. On the outer ring, you will have the yellow. The next ring will be the light red-orange salt. Finally, in the center, you will have the darkest color. Repeat this process with the remaining bath bombs.
Step 9: Once set up, remove the bath bombs from the molds. If you would like a little sparkle, dust the entire bath bomb with some mica.
We hope that you enjoy your geode bath bombs!
