Bath Bomb - Green Tea

1 1/4 cups of Baking soda or Bicarbonate of Soda
1/2 cup of Citric acid
2 tsp of Almond Oil or Apricot kernel oil
1/2 tbs of Water
5 drops of Green food coloring
2 tbs of Green tea leaves (add up to 1 tsp of green tea fragrance oil if desired)

Combine the dry ingredients (except the tea leaves)into a bowl and stir until well mixed.

Next drizzle in the almond oil and stir until mixture is moistened. Add more oil and fragrance and stir until well mixed.

Then add the 1/2 tbs of boiling water to the green tea leaves and add to the dry mixture.

If mixture is crumbly then add more oil or a dash of water.

Roll the mixture into a ball using your hands or press it into a lightly oiled mold, such as a Bath Bomb mold or a chocolate mold. Let it slip out from the mold.

Put the ball/shape on a sheet of wax paper and leave it to dry till it is hard (about 24 hours).

Use 1 Bomb per bath.

Makes 7 Medium sized Bath Bombs
