Are you struggling to find a Christmas present for someone who already has everything? Or maybe you just need a nice gift you can make yourself? If so, bath bombs are the solution. Here’s our amazing recipe:
- 500 g baking soda
- 250 g citiric acid
- Aroma oil (not completely necessary. Can be bought in the pharmacy)
- Gift ribbons
- Cling wrap
- Food colouring
- In a bowl, mix half a teaspoon aroma oil with half a teaspoon of water. Water can be substituted for food colouring if desired
- Add 220 ml baking soda and 120 ml citric acid and knead everything into a grainy mixture
- Wrap the mixture in cling wrap and shape it into a ball. It might seem loose, but it will harden after a few hours in the wrap
- Make sure that the wrap is as tight around the bath bomb as possible
- Secure with gift ribbons
The bath bombs are loose at the beginning but they will harden in a few hours. If you make multiple portions, try to colour them with different types of food colouring. But make sure to not add any water if you add food colouring since it contains water. The bath bombs become extra nice if you add glitter and mix different colours in the same bomb.
The chemical name for baking soda is sodium hydrogen carbonate or sodium bicarbonate. This means that baking soda is composed of sodium, hydrogen, and carbon. When baking soda gets into contact with acid and water, the carbon turns into carbon dioxide, a gas. This gas works as a rising agent when baking soda is used in acidic doughs.
