Here we have included the traditional wet ingredients to finish your bath bomb including oils and butters.
Think about making Bath Melts which are a mixture of different oils and butters that are solid at room temperature but melt when you drop them in the bath.
The basic recipe is 2:1 of a hard butter such as Cocoa Butter, melted with a base oil such as Sweet Almond Oil. Adding a small amount of fragrance or essential oil gives it an aroma. Extend the recipe with variations such as Natural Vitamin E oil or extras such as micas or botanicals.
It is best to make the bath melts in a small mould - the Candle Wax Tart moulds are ideal. Make them too big, and your bath turns into an oil slick.
Also you do need to keep them cool when storing them. Trying to display them on a hot summer's day just isn't going to work and you will be left with a gooey mess.
A Bath Truffle gives the fizz of a bath bomb but with added butter to give a softness to the skin. These can be made without a mould as they have the consistency of dough before they set.
Castor Oil is the oil from the castor bean and is a colourless/pale yellow liquid. It is a fixed oil obtained by cold expression from the seeds of Ricinus communis.
It can be used as a skin preparation for making the skin softer.
Widely used in massage and aromatherapy, also in lip balms.
