Takeaway: Lightweight, easy to use and clean, sturdy metal molds.

You'll receive a color coded set of measuring spoons, 10 large (#3), 10 medium (#2), and 10 small (#1) aluminum half sphere molds, and 100 pieces of plastic shrink wrap bags. The diameter of the smallest mold is 1-3/4", the medium molds are 2", and the large molds are 2.5" in diameter. These metal molds are made of aluminum and are lightweight; while you are meant to press two halves together to make a sphere, they don't interlock, which makes it a little easier to unmold your bath bombs later on. The measuring spoons are labeled in metric with the smallest being 1 ml, then 2.5 ml, 5 ml, 7.5 ml, and 15 ml which is about 1 Tablespoon. The recipe I used for the bath bombs is as follows:
- ½ cup of baking soda
- ¼ cup Epsom salt
- ¼ cup cornstarch
- ¼ cup citric acid
- 1 Tbsp of organic carrier oil, divided (for separate colors/scents)
- 1 Tbsp water, divided
- Essential oils
- Soap color (optional)

1. Combine all your dry ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk until thoroughly combined. Divide evenly if making multiple colors/scents.
2. Combine your wet ingredients, starting with 1 Tablespoon of your carrier oil. If your oil is solid at room temperature, like coconut oil, heat it briefly (30 secs) in the microwave until it is liquid. If making multiple colors and scents divide the oil and water evenly before adding a few drops of essential oil and scents to each. For three colors I added 8-10 drops of essential oil and 4 drops of color before adding the water (1 tsp to each). Then stir the liquid ingredients until they form a bubbly looking emulsion.
3. Quickly whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients a little at a time to prevent the citric acid from activating and foaming. Continue mixing until fully combined. When it's done it should look and feel like damp sand and hold together when squeezed.
4. Lightly pack your bath bomb molds. If making spheres, leave one half off and dry 1 hour before flipping over to dry the other side. Then leave to dry overnight.
5. Once completely dry, the bath bombs should be ready to use.

A few quick tips. My lavender mix was a little bit dry so I should have added more water or a high percentage rubbing alcohol to add moisture before packing. As a result it didn't come together or stick very well to the other mixes and cracked/crumbled after drying. However, the bath bombs in general came out pretty good and the essential oils worked great for adding aromatherapy to each that was strong but not overpowering. I also did not experience any irritation to my skin with the amount that I used. The essential oils were from Corked.com and if you use this affiliate link for your purchase you'll receive 15% off your entire order.

Overall, the bath bomb kit gives you all the pieces you need to make bath bombs, minus the ingredients and any recipes or instructions how to use them. The kit was easy to use and I like having the option to make the different sizes of bath bombs.
