DIY Bathbombs/ Mini-bathbombs for your foot spa! :)

Recently, I threw a baby shower. I was trying to think of what would make good gifts-something to treat lovely peeps who came and also helped out. So I decided to make some bathbombs. Now I realise that there are so many recipes on bath bombs on-line. I have tried couple of different recipes and I can say that they all end up slightly different.

However, this is a recipe I do like. So here’s to sharing Β πŸ™‚ I had lots of fun making them. At the end, my hand&arms felt all soft and smelled like orange scented perfume πŸ™‚ Hope you give it a go, don’t forget to ask if you have any questions!!!

*************************************************************************************************

112.5g baking soda,Β 56.5g citric acid (these 2 are for the fizz effect)

56.5g corn flour (this is to bind the whole thing)

56.5g Epsom salt (releases muscle tension)

1/2 tsp water (Add this in drops. As you add, quickly stir like crazy! πŸ™‚ Otherwise

10-12 drops of pure essential orange oil (yes, I know, quite a lot I know…but more oil= smells amazing!)

2tsp 100% Italian olive oil (soothes dry skin/cracks in your feet)

FewΒ drops of non-toxic water based red&yellow food colouring to achieve orange

Dry rose petals/other flower petals of your choice+ gift bags+ribbon/coloured strings

I had someone ask me if they were candy/lollies. πŸ™‚ heheh πŸ™‚ They really did smell amazing though! πŸ™‚ I used silicon mini-muffin moulds by the way, in case you are wondering what I used to mould my mini bathbombs.

*Tip: You have to work quite fast as you bind the whole thing. Otherwise, the miture dries up fairly fast and solidifies. Remember: Mix your wet ingredients first and then add it to your dry ingredients πŸ™‚

*************************************************************************************************

Two different ways of wrapping πŸ™‚ One batch= see through clear bags.

Other batch= Tissue papers πŸ™‚

My Pink Tree/I will be thankful in 2015 tree/ DIY Thank you Tree/DIY Homemade Centerpiece

11/1/2014

Hello my lovelies! Today at church, I heard this sermon about how when you feel God is speaking into your heart that we should jot it down. Write it down somewhere. In case we forget. To remind us when we go through tough times. To be thankful for the good times.Β Then it occurred to me. Most people would probably write a journal. Fair enough. But in my case, I have been known to eh hem… ‘misplace’ such journals. Also, IΒ have been making a ‘thank you’ tree since sometime last year. So this year, I decided to make one. I thought I would make this, leave it around the entrance to my flat and hang my/other people’s contributions on the tree as the year goes on. Then at the end of the year, reflect on the scribbles. Not that we are not allowed to randomly read things off tree before the yr ends πŸ™‚ Anyways. Β My hand is now coloured fluorescent pink. Still. It was fun πŸ™‚

What you need: Paint (or gold/silver spray), fake pearls, glitter, glue guns, some tree branches, bright fabric (or tissue paper or other types of fabric of your choice) and some strings of course πŸ™‚

Step 1: Paint your tree branch. Mine ended up pink because I found some pink paint. Other colours= $$$Β But you can use any colour your like πŸ™‚

Step 2. Add glitter to the tree branch with wet/semi-dry paint. With a glue gun, add fake pearls to the tip of every branch. You don’t have to do this, but I chose to do this to make Β the tree more pretty πŸ™‚

Step 3. With the glue gun, glue the branch into a glass jar. I understand if the branch is thick enough, you may not want to do this. But I chose to glue mine to give more stability to my tree structure. I then found some matching coloured fabric and covered the top of the glass jar πŸ™‚

Place the tree somewhere you won’t forget πŸ™‚ On pieces of blank paper, don’t forget to scribble what you are thankful for and then hang it on the tree πŸ™‚ One paper piece= does not have to be one thing. It can be many things. Whatever you feel like. Don’t forget to leave some matching coloured strings near the tree for other people to hang their notes πŸ™‚
