Fizzy Bath Bombs

My son decided we needed to find a better fizzer bath bomb recipe. He googled it and found this recipe.

This is how it goes as described by my son...

Mum we need...

1 1/2 cups of Barcode Soda (Bicarb)
1/2 cup Cirus Acid (Citric)
2 teaspoons of Sweet Almond Oil - you got that mum!
Essential Oil (or fragrances) - Mum I want us to do Lemon - you have lemon?
Food colouring - no mum we wont use that stuff.

Sift Barcode Soda and Cirus acid together.

In a separate bowl put 1/2 cup of this mixture into it. Then add 1/2 teaspoon of Sweet Almond Oil and 7 drops of lemon oil.

Quickly mix and the pack tightly into a mould. IT appears VERY dry and you do wonder if it is going to work (trust me it does)

Repeat unti finished.

Let them set in moulds for 24 - 36 hrs. Then carefully remove them and wa la!

Then have fun with them - they don't last long but they sure do fizz lots - boys are happy - mum is happy.
