The best bit about this business is the amount of testing that has to be done before products can be taken to market. We have a constant supply of freshly made bath bombs which sit in a basket in the bathroom - and the only houserule is; never have a bath without trying one.
Today's offering was a basic lavender bomb. I'm still working on the final base recipe, so whilst I do that I take the various colours/fragrances out for a test run. This one combines Bicarb, Citric Acid, Kaolin clay, Cocoa butter, SLS & Sweet Almond oil. The colour is exceptionally vivid, maybe too much so - but the dispersal of colour in the bath is hypnotising - which is exactly the effect I wanted. Onwards and upwards.
