All around!

Much laundry has been done and folded. The kitchen cleaned and cooked in and cleaned again. Soup archived in the freezer for handy lunches. Music has been made (well, by Russell alone, but still!). Journal has been written in, calendars acquired.

And today, today bath bombs have been made! Apricot-ginger, Vanilla-almond, Orange-ginger-vanilla with lemon peel, and Rosemary-grapefruit. It's been a while since i've made a batch - i'm looking forward to them being dry, wrapping them up, and then using them over the next few weeks. Why yes, Virginia, i am a packaging whore.

whats your recipe? i have only made fizzy bath salts and salt scrubs. i have never ventured into the actual bomb, and i was thinking of making heart shaped bombs i have a nice form for them.

2:1 baking soda: citric acid + shaved & shredded cocoa butter + fragrance. Bind with a spritz bottle of witch hazel, press into molds. voila!

Oh, that sounds DIVINE.

where do you purchase your citric acid and cocoa butter? i bought some from a catalof/online a year or so ago, but they require a 100.00 minimum purchase.

I can't help it -- every time I hear 'bath bomb', I picture something involving elemental sodium being dropped into a bath.

Mike, i love you.

Karine: i buy my citric acid and most of my scents from Majestic Mountain Sage: http://www.the-sage.com/
No minimum order that i can see - man, $100 is one heck of a lot of citric acid....
