Inspired by the first picture of a Black Hole we created this new Black Hole Bath Bomb
Cover work area with parchment paper and set out supplies.
In the large bowl add baking soda, citric acid, cream of tartar, and cornstarch. Mix with a spoon.
In a microwave safe bowl melt the coconut oil and add the essential oils and polysorbate 80.
Add the liquid mix to the dry mix bowl and mix it all together with your hands. It is completely mixed when it holds a shape when you squish it, just like wet sand.
Add 2 tablespoons of activated charcoal. Mix well with gloved hands. Add glitter and mix.
Pack the mixture into the silicone donut molds. Press it in tightly to make sure there are no gaps or cracks.
Let harden for 48 hours in a warm, dry place.
After 48 hours, carefully remove the bath bombs from the silicone mold and place on parchment paper.
In a microwave safe cup melt 2 or 3 cubes of ‘melt and pour’ soap in the microwave. Use short increments and stir regularly. Once melted add a 4 drops of orange soap colourant and stir.
Carefully spoon the soap mixture over your bath bomb.
Let harden for approximately 2 hours.
Store in an airtight container until you are ready to use.
