The sun is out and finally people and plants are getting some much needed vitamin D! Amazing how a bright day can change everyone's mood - there are lots of smiles around at the moment...long may it continue! It's been a busy few days but productive ones at that! There is nothing quite like making something from scratch and my pet project this week was bath bombs.
|Lavender bath bombs...|
I have wanted to make those ever since watching a program on TV which made it look so easy to do - and it really is! Mix together bicarb, citric acid, essential oil and carrier oil, press into mould (in this case a biscuit cutter), leave to dry and ta dah - bath bombs! I made lavender ones, adding dried flowers and using lavender essential oil which should make for a relaxing bath...I will try them out today before making a bigger batch. To keep them dry before use they will have to be wrapped in foil - I will try and get my hands on some chocolate wrapping foil which will be thinner than normal alu foil and easier to wrap around.
