Pikake Flower Bath Bombs
These Pikake Flower Bath Bombs will fill your tub with a scent of a tropical vacation!
Recipe type: Bath Bomb
Serves: Six-Ten Bath Bombs
- 300g Sodium Bicarbonate
- 100g Citric Acid
- 6 mL Pikake Flower Fragrance Oil or any Fragrance or Essential oil you like!
- Approximately 4 drops Pink/Red Bath Bomb Soap Dye
- Rose Petals or any petals
- Witch Hazel
- 10 Bath Bomb Mold and Packages
- Optional: 8oz Bottle with Spray Top, 2 Droppers
- In a clean dry bowl, measure out 2 cups of Sodium Bicarbonate, and 1 cup of Citric Acid. If there are any clumps in the mixture, you can push the powder through a sifter.
- With a dropper, measure out and add 6 ml of Pikake Fragrance Oil. Using gloved hands, work the fragrance through the powder mixture (using your hands is the easiest way to work out clumps.)
- Split the batch evenly in half (it’s okay to eyeball it). Make sure the bowls you chose have enough room for hand mixing. In one half, add 4 drops of Rosy Pink La Bomb colorant. Rub the powder between your fingers to distribute the clumps of colorant even through the mixture.
- Spritz each batch of bath bomb mix with the witch hazel 4 times. Rub the witch hazel through the powder. Squeeze the powder in your hand, and check and see if it holds its shape. If it does not, add one more spritz at a time until it does. You don’t want the bath bomb to get too wet, or it will set off its bubbling reaction before you get it to the bath!
- Take one half of the bath bomb mold, and place 3-4 rose petals in the bottom of it. Sprinkle a tiny handful of white bath bomb powder over this.
- Next, sprinkle a small handful of the pink bath bomb powder over the white powder. Gently pack it in, and repeat the pattern until the one half is filled. Do the same thing to the other half of the mold. Gently pack each side down. Build up the centers of the halves about ⅛th inch.
- Gently and firmly press the two halves together while twisting. Make sure the interlocking seals are clear of any bath bomb mixture so they can click together. If they don’t push fully together, you can add another pinch of mix between the two halves.
- To use, you can either crumble a bit of the bath bomb in your bath, or drop the whole thing in and watch it fizz!
