Prior to use, ensure that both your utensils and containers are properly cleaned and disinfected. Wash them with warm soapy water, dry with a tissue, and then sanitize by spraying with 70% medical alcohol. Wipe them clean and let them air dry before use.
Steps: DIY Musk Bath Bomb
Please use the exact quantities indicated below to ensure you obtain a successful bath bomb. It is very important that any utensil you use is completely dry.
In a medium-sized bowl:
1- Start by adding 225 grams (7.94 oz) of sodium bicarbonate.
2- Add 113 grams (3.98 oz) of citric acid.
3- Add 113 grams (3.98 oz) of corn flour.
4- Add 113 grams (3.98 oz) of sea salt (ground but kept a bit coarse).
5- Mix the ingredients well.
6- Add 0.5 grams (0.017 oz) of oily color powder. Here, I am using the orange color.
7- Mix again thoroughly.
In a separate small bowl:
8- Add 3 teaspoons equal to a total of 10 grams (0.35 oz) of olive oil.
9- Add 2 teaspoons equal to a total of 5 grams (0.17 oz) of musk essential oil.
10- Add 1 teaspoon or 4 grams (0.14 oz) of distilled water.
Note: The densities of the olive oil, essential oil, and water are different, that is why a teaspoon of them weighs differently.
11- With a small whisk, mix the olive oil, essential oil, and water.
Mix all the Ingredients
12- Pour this mix of olive oil, essential oil, and water over the main mix in the medium-sized bowl.
13- First, mix all the ingredients with the whisk.
14- Now, start working the contents with your hand, mixing them and lightly kneading them.
15- How do we know that we have worked the ingredients sufficiently? Take a handful and squeeze tightly; if the sample holds together in the shape of your squeeze, then this is an indication that the contents are now ready for the mold.
16- Now, we will fill the molds. Take each shell of a mold, and overfill it with the contents.
17- Push the 2 shells of the mold against each other. Squeeze them tightly together.
18- Fill the remaining molds. The molds have kind of a flat bottom, so you can stand them on the table.
19- The bath bombs will be ready for removal after 24 hours.
How To Use: DIY Musk Bath Bomb
Follow these simple steps to create the perfect spa-like atmosphere in the comfort of your own bathroom:
- Prepare Your Bath Space: Start by setting the mood for relaxation. Dim the lights, play some calming music, and ensure the bathroom is tidy and clutter-free to create a serene ambiance.
- Fill the Bathtub: Run a warm bath and fill it to your desired level. As the water begins to flow, this is the perfect time to drop in your DIY Musk Bath Bomb.
- Gently Lower the Bath Bomb: Hold the DIY Musk Bath Bomb just above the water’s surface and let it slowly fizz and dissolve on its own. Watch as the bath bomb releases the enchanting aroma of musk, transforming your bathroom into a luxurious spa retreat.
- Step In and Unwind: Once the bath bomb has fully dissolved, step into the tub and immerse yourself in the soothing water. Allow the nourishing properties of the bath bomb’s natural ingredients to pamper your skin, while the musk essential oil helps calm your mind and relax your senses.
- Take Your Time: Take your time to unwind and enjoy the tranquil atmosphere. Close your eyes, take deep breaths, and let the stress of the day melt away.
- Hydrate and Moisturize: After your relaxing bath, gently pat your skin dry with a soft towel. To lock in moisture and further enhance the benefits of the DIY Musk Bath Bomb, apply your favorite body lotion or a few drops of pure olive oil to keep your skin hydrated and smooth.
- Relax a Little Longer: Don’t rush the relaxation process. Take a few moments to bask in the afterglow of your home spa experience. Enjoy a cup of herbal tea or a glass of water to keep yourself hydrated.
With these simple steps, you can turn any regular bath into an extraordinary and rejuvenating spa-like retreat. The DIY Musk Bath Bomb will not only elevate your bath time to new levels of indulgence but also leave you feeling refreshed, revitalized, and ready to take on the world with a renewed sense of calm and tranquility.
