1 heaped tsp aromatic tea
1 tbsp citric acid powder
3 tbsp bicarbonate of soda
10 drops essential oil (We suggest Lavender)
1 tsp sweet almond oil
Make sure that the bowl you are using, and your hands, are completely dry - otherwise the bomb will start fizzing. In a glass bowl, mix the citric acid and bicarbonate of soda together.
Add a few drops of essential oil and 1 tsp dry aromatic tea, along with the sweet almond oil. Mix everything together with a metal spoon. (If you just want a fizzy bath salt, only use half the sweet almond oil and don't follow the next step below - simply pour your mixture into a clean, dry jar)
Place the biscuit cutter on top of a sheet of baking paper. Put the mixture into the biscuit cutter and press down with the back of the spoon.
The oil now needs to evaporate so the bomb can set as a dry, hard block - leave for a minimum of 30 minutes and preferably overnight.
STORAGE: Store in tin foil to keep out moisture.
