For this recipe we will be using citric acid and baking soda. Citric Acid can be used for many different industries and products. It can be used for medicinal purposes, skin care, hair care, bath and body products, soaping, and cleaning purposes. When used in soaps, it works as a water softener, and helps to produce better foam.

This clay is light green in color when dry, but turns dark green when wetting agents are added.  The reason French green clay is green is because it contains actual decomposed plant material; making French green clay very nutritious for the skin. It contains some very important minerals such as,  Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Sodium, Potassium, Copper, and Selenium.  Since French Green Clay powder is so full of healthy minerals, it can be added to mineral baths to help nourish the skin, remove impurities, relieve sunburn, and to aide in the relief of arthritis pain.

Green Tea Bath Bomb Recipe: Let’s Get Started

To begin with, you will need two mixing bowls. The first mixing bowl will be for your dry ingredients and the second bowl will be for your wet ingredients.

In your first bowl, weigh out 300 grams Citric Acid, 600 grams Baking Soda. Using your hands or a large mixing spoon, combine these ingredients together until fully mixed. Set this bowl aside, while you get the wet ingredients together.

Now we are going to add the two bowls of ingredients together. To the dry ingredients, add the bowl of wet ingredients.

Green Tea Bath Bomb Recipe: Combining the Ingredients

Next, you will be mixing the ingredients together. Using your hands to combine the ingredients well. You want to be sure the oils are evenly dispersed throughout the mixture.

 

Green Tea Bath Bomb Recipe: Dividing the Mixture

Now we are going to divide our mixture in half. Leave one half of the mixture in the bowl and place the other half of the mixture in another mixing bowl.

Now you will take the second bowl of mixture and weigh out 5 grams of the cut and sifted green tea and the 5 grams of bentonite clay powder. Give this a good mix together using your hands.

 

Green Tea Bath Bomb Recipe: Using the Witch Hazel

At this time, we will begin using the witch hazel that was prepped earlier in your spray bottle. Begin with the first bowl and spray the mixture while mixing the contents with your hands. You want to keep spritzing and mixing until you have a crumbly dough-like consistency throughout all the bath bomb dough. Once the first bowl is done, you will set that aside and do the same with the second bowl.

 

Green Tea Bath Bomb Recipe: Creating the First Half of the Bath Bomb

Now you will be forming the bath bomb and for this you will need your bath bomb molds. Keep in mind that each mold set will consist of two differently shaped parts. So, take one half of the bath bomb mold and fill it with the mixture that contains the green tea powder. Pack this into the mold half tightly and compactly.

Now you are going to put the bath bomb together. Before doing so, lightly mist each half of the bomb with the witch hazel. Then, press the two halves together tightly. The mold should snap together. You can set this mold aside to set up and continue the process of packing the halves of the molds and putting them together with the remainder of the dough. This recipe makes 6 bath bombs.

 

Green Tea Bath Bomb Recipe: Letting Them Set Up

Finally, you will give your bath fizzies enough time to set up. This can be anywhere from 24-48 hours depending on the humidity of your environment. Keep your bath bombs in a cool, dry area away from places that they could get knocked down or roll away.

 

Green Tea Bath Bomb Recipe: Ready to Use

You can choose to keep your bath bombs in their molds until you are ready to use them. This makes selling or giving your creations easy, clean and simple! However, if you wish, you can also remove the bombs from their molds and package them how you prefer. When it’s time for a bath, simply drop a bath bomb into some warm, running bath water. Relax and enjoy a nice, soak in a beneficial bath!

So, now that we are clear in the process, let’s begin!
