Posted on


The bath bombs that everyone knows and loves - with the additional treat of creamy cocoa butter. An ideal addition to your Christmas and birthday gift baskets...:o)

114g cocoa butter
114g bicarbonate of soda
56g citric acid
90g cornstarch
12 drops purple food colouring
12 drops lavender essential oil
dried lavender flowers

also: bath bomb moulds

To make:

Spray the moulds with non-stick cooking spray. Slowly melt the cocoa butter in a double boiler. Take off the heat, stir in the bicarbonate of soda, citric acid and cornstarch. Stir thoroughly until well combined. Add the food colouring and lavender essential oil and stir until evenly mixed. Finally, mix in the dried lavender flowers.

Spoon the mixture into the greased bath bomb moulds, pressing down to ensure that the mixture is well-packed. Put in the freezer to set. Turn out of the moulds when hard.
