How to make Lemon and Green Tea Bath Bombs
Step One: prepare.
Have all of your ingredients gathered together.
Make sure that your molds are clean and dry.
Step Two: mix the ingredients.
In a large bowl (I prefer a glass or similar bowl) use a fork or a whisk to combine together the baking soda, citric acid, cornstarch, and Epsom salts. Then gently mix in the green tea.
Next, in a clean and dry small jar that has a lid, combine together the almond oil, water and essential oil
Place the lid on the jar and shake well.
Step Three: combine the ingredients.
It is essential that the combining of the ingredients be done slowly and while whisking in order to prevent activating the ingredients (which means you will need to start over).
Slowly whisk with one hand and pour with the other if possible (or get someone to help you) as you add the wet ingredients from the jar to the dry ingredients in the bowl.
Your mixture will have the consistency that is like a paste.
Step four: finish the bath bombs.
Transfer the mixture to half of the molds. You should overfill the molds you are filling so that you can use your fingers or a spoon to press the mixture into the molds. Then place the empty hold halves on the filled halves and secure the halves together.
Allow the bath bombs to fully set before unmolding (three hours to overnight).
