The rose has been a symbol of love and beauty for centuries; it is used in skincare to promote cell renewal. This sensual and comforting blend of rose and jasmine will lift and soothe your spirits.
If you want to make more economical bath bombs, you can use one part granular citric acid to three parts bicarbonate of soda (baking soda); however, we recommend using the quantities stated in the basic recipe if you are using oils or butters (as these ingredients may reduce the fizz in your bomb).

You Will Need
Next, using your spray bottle, spray the mixture several times with water (you can also use witch hazel or floral waters) and mix in with your hands. When the water reacts with the ingredients, the mixture will become icy cold and heavy to the touch. Squeeze the mixture together with your hands before adding more water.
Note: If using oil or melted butter in the recipe, this will also act as a binder, so you will not need to spritz as much water. This will also depend on how much fragrance or extra dry ingredients you have used, or even the humidity on the day of making.
Your mixture should resemble damp sand and should hold together well when squeezed in your hand. If the mixture is too wet, when you turn it out it can ‘grow’ and change shape. If it is dry and crumbles, add some more water. When you are happy with your mix, mould your bath bombs fairly quickly before the mixture starts to dry out. If it does begin to dry out, just spritz on some more water.
