Lovers of green tea will find this bath bomb recipe irresistible.
What you need
1 1/4 cups of Baking soda or Bicarbonate of Soda
1/2 cup of Citric acid
2 tsp of Almond Oil or Apricot kernel oil
1/2 tbs of Water
5 drops of Green food coloring
2 tbs of Green tea leaves
Makes 7 Medium sized Bath Bombs
Combine the dry ingredients (except the tea leaves) into a bowl and stir until well mixed. Next drizzle in the almond oil and stir until mixture is moistened. Add more oil and fragrance and stir until well mixed.
Then add the 1/2 tbs of boiling water to the green tea leaves and add to the dry mixture. If mixture is crumbly then add more oil or a dash of water.
Roll the mixture into a ball using your hands or press it into a lightly oiled mold, such as a Bath Bomb mold or a chocolate mold. Let it slip out from the mold.
Put the ball/shape on a sheet of wax paper and leave it to dry till it is hard. It may take several days.
Use 1 bomb per bath.
