• Lemon Myrtle and Patchouli Bath Bombs

    These bath bombs are super cute and look a little like ice-cream scoops when made in a sphere. The calming nature of lemon myrtle, mixed with the subtle musky qualities of patchouli create a truly relaxing bathing experience. 


    300 g | sodium bicarbonate (bicarb)

    130 g | citric acid

    A Sprinkle of powdered 'green food' or powdered Acai   

    18ml |  carrier oil (fractionated coconut oil and sweet almond oil are popular choices)

    25 drops of Lemon Myrtle essential oil

    8 drops of Patchouli Essential Oil

    Extra equipment required…

    Silicone moulds


    1. Add sodium bicarbonate, citric acid and colourant (if using) to a bowl and mix until combined.
    2. Add carrier oil and essential oils, and mix until combined. 
    3. With a spray bottle, lightly mist the bowl filled with mixture until it just starts to fizz then stir through the dampened mix. Repeat 4 times. 
    4. Spoon mixture into silicone moulds and press down firmly until full.
    5. Leave to set for 12-24 hours in a cool and dry place. After this time, turn moulds upside down and gently tap the bottom – bath drops should fall out easily.
    6. Slightly dampen the top of the bomb and sprinkle with coloured powder for effect. 
    7. Place on a tray or sheet of baking paper and leave to dry for a further 24 hours before storing in container of choice.
