Bath Bombs Are Fantastic for Relaxing and Self Care

In this live broadcast we made bath bombs on Periscope TV. Several people asked about ingredients and the equipment used when I realized that this would probably make a great blog post.

Bath Bombs or Bath Fizzies are typically a combination of Baking Soda, Citric Acid and some binding agent like distilled water, alcohol, witch hazel or oil. You can make them by combining the ingredients and molding in a shape of your choice.

I use an electra press from Muddy Soap Co to mold my bath bombs to ensure consistency in weight and shape.

Bath Bomb PressYou certainly have options when it comes to molding your bath bombs. At the lowest end of the spectrum you can use the plastic Easter eggs or the Christmas ornaments. There are also metal bath bomb molds and at the higher end of the spectrum are bath bomb presses. Bath bomb presses ensure you get consistent pressure every time while simultaneously taking the load off of your hands to press each mold. These will range between $99.00 and $800.00. Depending on your volume you will need to determine if the investment is worth it for you.
