How to Make Green Tea Matcha & Vanilla Homemade Bath Bombs
Steps 1-8: In a large mixing bowl combine:
- baking soda
- citric acid
- Epsom salts
- cream of tartar
- vanilla extract
- Mix ingredients together.
Step 9: Evenly divide the dry mixture into two bowls.
Step 10: Add the green Matcha powder to one bowl.
Step 11: Add water, 1/2 teaspoon at a time. Make sure to mix after each addition of water until the mixture forms a ball in your hand. Do not add too much water or it will not set properly!
Step 12: Using a small spoon. Add a bit of the green mixture to one side of the bath bomb mold and press down.
Next, repeat Step 12 with the white mixture, until one side of the mold is a bit over full. Repeat on the other side of the bath bomb mold, but start with the white and then layer the green, etc. Quickly press both sides together and set on a plate.
Leave the bath bomb molds overnight to harden. I put mine in the freezer, but this is optional. The next morning, carefully open the bath bomb mold or pop the bombs from your silicone mold. I will tell you now, you are probably going to break a mold or two. After you make homemade bath bombs a few times, it gets easier to get them free. You must twist gently to ease them out. Store in an airtight container until ready to use.
Drop one in the bath when ready to use!
These make great gifts or just keep them all to yourself.
