FIZZY BATH BOMBS
Makes three balls Ingredients:
1 cup bicarbonate of soda
½ cup cornflour
½ cup citric acid
½ cup Epsom salts
2 tsp water
1 tsp essential oil of choice (lavender is very calming)
2 tsp coconut oil
4 drops food colouring

Method:
1. In a bowl, combine the bicarbonate of soda, cornflour, citric acid and Epsom salts.
2. Melt the coconut oil in a pot over a low heat and in a separate bowl mix it with the water, essential oil and food colouring.
3. Very slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry ones, stirring constantly. Add one extra teaspoon of water at a time if needed in order for the mix to start clumping together. Be careful not to add too much water otherwise the mix will start fizzing.
4. Squeeze the mix into moulds (yoghurt pots or any spherical shapes) and let it sit for 30 minutes. Gently unmould the bombs and let them dry overnight before throwing them in a warm bath.

TIP: The ingredients in these recipes are safe for children’s delicate skin (although lavender essential oil is unsuitable for babies under one) and great for hydrating, so the whole family can enjoy some extra pampering at bath time.
