I've been on solo duty this week and I'm not going to lie it's been a bit gruelling. I'm often used to doing these solo stints but this one has been a baptism of fire after having several days away on holiday altogether. So I was very thankful when the lovely people at Hobbycraft got in touch asking if I'd like to try out their Bath Bombe Craft Kit. What better way to ease my troubles away than a relaxing soak in the tub and some me time.
The kit is super easy to use and contains a mould tray, fragrance, bicarbonate powder, citric acid powder, a 50ml measuring cup, a mixing bag, fragrance, colourants and pipette. All you need in addition is water and not much at that.
Following the instructions carefully I decided to try and make four bath bombes to start with and add my own fragrance of jasmine to uplift and de-stress myself. After mixing 100ml of bicarbonate powder with 50ml of citric acid powder, I slowly added and mixed a few drops of colour and fragrance in before I transferred it over to the moulding tray, making two blue and two pink.
After only one minute the bath bombes are ready to be tipped out of the tray and left to dry out overnight. F was so excited at finding these drying that he promptly picked up and destroyed a blue one just after I took the below pic, so safe to say this is best done when you have some time on your own.
Now all you need is to turn off the phone, make sure the kids are in bed, run a steamy hot bath, drop in your bath bombe and relax. I also think these would make a lovely personal gift to friends or family members who need a little bit of pampering.
We were sent a kit for review purposes, but all thought and words are my own.
