Good article. I am planning on doing my own bombs for Christmas gifts. I made my very first batch today. I used baking soda, citric acid, oil, essential oils, water, food coloring. I put one in a plastic ornament ball and another in a small ice tray. It all looked okay, I was pleased I could do it. My question is, I left them to dry and when I checked a little later some of them puffed up and changed their shape. Do I leave them in the molds while they dry? For how long? I have heard some people put them in the refrigerator.
I wanted to use Epsom Salts - do I add or substitute?

I unmold them immediately and wrap as soon as possible. If they get wet at all they could start to puff. Epsom salts are great in them, you may just need to adjust your liquids a bit!

Never thought of making my own bath bombs, not to sure why either. I love to use them whenever I have a long or stressful day at work. It's just like you said, it's relaxing.

Going to have to give this a try!!
