DIY Bath Bombs
I made some bath bombs using a tutorial from the book 'Bath Bombs'. These were so simple & easy to make once you've gotten hold of the different ingredients you need.

    Step 1

    Gather all your ingredients. Some of these are optional so go for the basics if you're on a budget!

    Begin mixing your ingredients by measuring the citric acid & adding it to your mixing bowl. Next add the bicarb and fragrances. The mixture may fizz when you add your liquid ingredients; simple cover this with the dry ingredients to stop the fizzing.

    Use your hands to mix the ingredients together (use gloves if you have cuts on your hands!). Once mixed add the rose hip oil and mix.

    Grab a small bowl and fill this with cold water; dip your fingertips into the water & sprinkle it over your mixture (you could use a spray bottle if you have one) and mix. Your mixture should resemble sand and should keep its shape when you squeeze in your hand; slowly add more water if needed but be careful not to add too much!

    Once mixed grab your heart shaped moulds and press the mixture into the moulds. Pat them into to the moulds firmly; brush off the excess and turn them out onto baking paper or a clean surface.

    Finally, leave for 24 hours to set
