Get Ready To Make Something Bath time Treats...

makes 12 mini heart bombes

I just love these gorgeous heart shaped bombes, make sure you oil up your moulds and let them set for 24 hours of more. They will break off a little when you get them out the moulds so don't be alarmed, the heavier you press then mixture into the moulds the better the shape when you press them out.

You Will Need  -

115 grams bicarbonate of soda
100 grams citric acid granules
50 grams cornflower
2 teaspoons lavender essential oil
1 teaspoon lavender dried flowers
Handful of rose petals
1 teaspoon of almond oil
Set of ice cube rubber moulds
Almond oil to grease out the moulds

Go Create!

1. Mix the bicarbonate of soda, citric acid granules and cornflower in a bowl.
2. Add the petals and dried flowers to the mix
3. Then add the essential oil and almond oil drop by drop so that the mixture comes together like wet sand. If you think it needs more oil mould it in your hands, if it sticks then this is the right consistency.
4. Press the mixture into the moulds and leave to set for 24 hours.
5. Put out the mini bombes and leave to dry for another day before placing in paper bags for gifts.

To make one big bombe!

You will need the same ingredients as above but 6 food bags and tin foil.
1. Follow the heart bombe recipe until stage 4, then mould the mixture in your hands like a snow ball.
2. Place the ball in a food bag and mould really tight into a ball through the plastic.
3. Wrap tightly in the foil and leave for 24 hours.

Once dry unwrap and they are ready to use!

I really hope you enjoy making these bombes as much as I did.
