Many of you, perhaps, first hear the phrase "Bath for a bath". It should be noted that this is not a pyrotechnic device, as you can first assume, but a cosmetic product that you can pamper yourself while bathing.
The bath bombs are small balls that quickly, with hissing, dissolve in hot water.
At the same time, for some time, the effect is created comparable to the effect of the jacuzzi. In order for you to have a complete impression of this cosmetic product, we recommend that you familiarize yourself with photos of the bathroom bombers.
The bombs are used for various purposes: they can additionally moisturize the skin, give it a darker shade or, conversely, bleach the skin.
They also spread a pleasant aroma that promotes relaxation. The moisturizing effect provided by this tool helps to compensate for the effects of dryness and peeling of the skin, which are associated with its dehydration under the influence of hot water.
This is due to the fact that the bombs supply the body with additional moisture. Next will be instructions for making a bathroom bomb at home.
The main ingredients of a home -made bomb. So, if you decide to make a bathroom bomb with your own hands, then you should take the following components: 4 ounce of baking soda; 2 ounces of corn starch; 2 ounces of citric acid; 2 ounces of English salt; 1 - 1.5 teaspoon of water; 5 - 10 drops of essential oil (to choose from); 1.25 teaspoon of vegetable oil (you can take, for example, coconut or olive oil); 1 - 2 drops of food dye (optional).
In a bowl, mix dry ingredients (the first of the four listed above). Beat the mixture to remove lumps: due to the presence of corn starch, there is a trend in the formation of lumps.
In a small glass jar, mix liquid ingredients (the last four of the above). If you use coconut oil, first quickly melt it in a microwave or on a stove so that it is easier to connect to other components.
Slowly pour the resulting liquid into a dry mixture, whipping it at the same time. If you note the appearance of hissing or the formation of foam, then perhaps you add a liquid too quickly.
As soon as all liquid ingredients are mixed with dry, put a small amount of the resulting substance on the palm of your hand and squeeze it in a fist. She should stick quite well with the formation of one or two large lumps.
If the resulting lumps have too crumbly consistency so that they can be connected together, just add a little water to them, and then mix the mixture until it becomes a viscous enough.
If you find that it is difficult for you to add a liquid gradually, take a bottle with a spray and use it for these purposes.
Now you need to fill each half of the shape for the bomb with the mixture until they are a little overflowing. Press both parts of the form to each other, then carefully delete one of them. Put a homemade bomb for a bath on the pallet and let it dry before cleaning the other part of the form.
Wait for about an hour, and then check whether the resulting product is easy to remove from the form. It should be noted that if you leave the product to lie in the form for too long, it can stick to it, and then it will be more difficult to extract the bomb, without provoking the formation of cracks.
When you are ready to remove the second part of the form, carefully turn the bath bomb so that the open side is turned down, then carefully remove the other half of the form located on top.
This should be done carefully: the product can easily break out if you are not careful. If during the extraction the bomb for the bath has split in half, you can carefully press it back to the other half or place the whole mixture back into the mixing container and start again to the process of molding.
After the bombs completely fall out of the mold, let them dry for 8 hours or leave them to dry overnight.
After drying, you can place them in a plastic container or wrap them in a bag and store in a dry place until you are ready to use them. You can also present the resulting cosmetics as a gift to your friends.
Now you know how to make a bathroom bomb yourself. But you may also come in handy about additional components that may be part of the bombs.
If you want to create two -tone products, then the recipe for the bathtub will have to correct a little: just mix the dough in two separate containers and add the food dye only to one of them.
So, in the process of preparing a mixture for bombing, you can add dry flower buds to it, for example, lavender. Only at the same time it is necessary to use high -quality dry flowers and avoid plants that could be grown using pesticides.
Also in mind that after using bombs with the addition of dry petals, you will later have to remove them from the bath. So, if it bothers you, then give preference to dry buds.
You can purchase sets of bombs for the bathroom, as well as ready-made forms for their manufacture on many trading Internet platforms.
But you can also use plastic holiday jewelry as forms: they should be hollow inside and should consist of two parts connected together.
