I read one of the other blogs on this site on how to make bath bombs and now I’ve found this which is perfect for me. I love the hearts and I’m sure to create some for my friends.

Woohoo! I made these but I don't think I evenly mixed everything, which was COOL, actually... because I used blue dye and it looked like clouds! :)

Didn't have witch hazel so I used tea tree oil... no idea why I did that, but it worked well enough.

Also dried it using my cooling down oven before I popped them out of the moulds.

Can't wait to test!
