⇒ DIY LUSH Bath Bombs with a Hidden Surprise!
2 cups baking soda
1 cup citric acid http://amzn.to/2grjY7U
1/4 cup fine sea salt
1 TBS cream of tartar
–sift together to combine
4 TBS oil of choice (light oils work best like almond oil http://amzn.to/2hhGrkP)
10-20 drops essential oil of choice
5 spritzes of 50/50 solution of water and rubbing alcohol mixture –in a spray bottle
combine wet ingredients
add wet ingredients to dry and combine – add skin safe coloring if desired
then add 2-3 spritzes of the water and rubbing alcohol mixture at a time, mixing thoroughly each time. Continue doing this until mixture is the texture of slightly damp sand. If it gets too wet it will be ruined- it’s much better to be on the dry side! You know it’s ready when you can gather a clump in your hand and squeeze it and it will stay together
SURPRISE ELEMENT – Then add a charm or gift of choice into a small airtight plastic container and seal shut. These are the containers I used http://amzn.to/2gnXEak
Pack bath fizz mixture into a silicone mold (http://amzn.to/2gro1RI) hiding the surprise inside.
Allow to dry overnight and pop out of molds
⇒ DIY Gift Box
The concept here is to make a personalized gift box that the recipient can then keep to use as a keepsake box, jewelry box or whatever they want. Cover the box in the person’s favorite things, quotes, photos of you, mementos, etc. using mod podge.
