How To Make Bath Bombs

Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl. Gradually add wet ingredients, stirring with a whisk, until thoroughly mixed.

When the mixture is wet enough to stick together in clumps, press mixture firmly into holds until filled. Remove excess from the sides. Let the mixture sit in the moods for five minutes, then carefully remove bath bombs from the moods.

Let them dry for 24 hours. Recipe makes enough for two round 2.5 inch diameter bath bombs.
