Lavender Pizazz Bath Bombs Recipe Ingredients


DIRECTIONS

Before starting this tutorial please make sure to read all instructions. Use caution when handling melted oils. Do not weigh fragrance oils into plastic containers; use glass or stainless steel. Use gloves when mixing to keep your manicure from getting scratched.

Cover the muffin pan in plastic wrap. Don’t pull too tightly – you want the plastic wrap to be a little hammock for your bath bombs as they dry.

Cram the two halves of the mold together. Do not twist. Clean the edges of the mold with your thumb. Hold the mold in one hand and use your opposite hand to give the mold a little squeeze.
