Not so pretty bath bombs

Well my first try at bath bombs did not turn out as nicely as I had hoped. They looked great until about 20 minutes after I made them, when I noticed they were swelling. I tried packing them again in the mold, but they just kept expanding. They did not get overly large, but they are somewhat misshaped. They still work great as "shower steamers"; I have not tried one in a bath yet. I LOVE the is called china rain and is such a relaxing scent. The blue color turned out very nice. I used FD&C blue 1 and just added a drop at a time until it was the desired color. In the future, I will add my citric acid after I add the liquids and I think it is best to spritz the witch hazel or water instead of dumping it in all at once.

  1. Ah, yes, it's all about the spritzing! I'm sure they'll still be lovely, and I wish I could smell them from here!
