Bath Bomb #2 (Eucalyptus)

Chichi.ca project: Day 100!!

Since the first attempt at making bath bombs went really well, I moved on to a more advanced recipe, with corn starch and epsom salt to see the difference.

I was underestimating bath bomb making…

Apparently, the lavender bath bombs went smoothly because of beginner’s luck. This time, I had a very difficult time shaping the bath bombs. After unmolding them the first time, they were too soft and didn’t keep their shape. I had to repeat the molding/unmolding process three times!

The bath bombs are drying right now. I will go check on them in a few hours, but if they are still too soft, I think I will have to give up…and just use it as fizzy powder.

The scent is mainly eucalyptus with a hint of rosemary.

If it works out ok, they are going to be very soothing in hot, humid Japan 🙂
