I mentioned in last week’s post that I had decided to make bath bombs and since I had so much fun doing it, I decided to make a whole post about the experience. Since quarantine started I’ve been spending a ridiculous amount of time on instagram, which is how I found out about Organically Bath Beauty. They’re a Black owned beauty brand that sells a whole kit with everything you need, including a reusable tin mold.
They have already pre-measured the dry ingredients like baking soda, citric acid, Epsom salts, etc. They include the mica for coloring your bathbombs, fragrance, emollient and dried rose petals lavender and mint to beautify your project. Organically Bath Beauty does video classes, so you can learn on your own time. And since you get so much in the kit, you can experiment with different molds to see what you like.
This is how easy the process is. Measure out your draw ingredients (I used a cup, and a teaspoon of the mica). Then add your oils, fragrance and dried herbs or flowers. Mix them together with your hands. Just get in there and give it all a good smush. Add tiny amounts of water to make the mix stick together. Once you it starts clumping together then you can pack the mold. I used the spherical mold that came with the kit, as well as some plastic mocha trays, and then I went crazy and used a plastic soap dish. The soap dish wasn’t the best idea, because it crumbled, but I can rewet the ingredients and try again.
Aren’t they gorgeous? I had so much fun making these, but the best was tossing them in the tub and watching them fizz, knowing that I had made this for myself. I tried the orange creAme, lavender and eucalyptus kits. And it’s definitely ignited a fever to make more bath bombs! Do yourself a favor and head over to Organically Bath Beauty and cop a kit for yourself. They’re $25 and refills are $20.
Until next time,
