Method of Preparation of bath bomb recipe:

To make bath bomb recipe first sieve and mix the dry ingredients together and stir until well blended. Ascorbic acid can be used instead of citric acid but usually not recommended, as it turns yellow when exposed to air, which gives the bombs a freckled appearance. Then measure and combine all the wet ingredients in a clean jar, cover the jar tightly and shake well.

Make sure that it is properly mixed and try to work quickly so that it doesn't dry out too much before it is molded.

If the bath bomb recipe bomb splits or crumbles while molding, then empty them on to your working jar and start making the balls again. If the bombs don’t keep shape, then add a tiny bit more oil (1/4 tsp or less). Sometimes the bombs crack a little after a day or so; just gently rub the crack with your fingers to smooth it. Watch the bombs for about half an hour after making them. Sometimes little beads of moisture appear on the bombs. It is due to the reaction, which makes them foam because of the moisture content of the air. To avoid the reaction, wrap the bombs completely in a clean, dry cloth and place them directly under a fan. Once the outside gets harden, the reaction will stop.
