Welcome to a brand new blog post! I recently went to Lush White Rose with Luke on World Bath Bomb Day and was able to make my very own Intergalactic Bath Bomb for free so I thought that today I would talk to you all about it.
As mentioned, to celebrate World Bath Bomb Day, Lush stores up and down the nation were able to invite anyone to come on the day and make their very own Intergalactic Bath Bomb. As Luke and I were popping into Leeds to grab some bits, we decided to pop into White Rose.
We entered the store and had a quick chat with all of the wonderful staff whilst having a quick look at the new Ippuku mini gift sets that are now available (blog post on them will be coming very soon).
As the bath bomb making workshops were once a hour, we looked around the store and sniffed some of the products that went well with the weather and Intergalactic such as Magic Crystals Body Scrub and Dirty Springwash Shower Gel until the time came to make my own bath bomb!
Luke was sneezing throughout the day and didn’t think it would be wise to be let loose with bowls of bath powders so he decided to sit and check social media whilst I made my own Intergalactic Bath Bomb.
After putting on gloves, the first thing that I did to create my bath bomb was to mix the blue powder that colours the majority of the bath bomb up with the bicarbonate of soda and citric acid mixture until they amalgamated into one concoction.
The next step was to grab half of the bath bomb mould provided and put the blue mixture into the bottom of mould and then compress it into one layer.
Step three was to grab some of pink powder and sprinkle that on the perimeter of the mould so that it would show when the bomb was created and then to repeat with the yellow powder.
Once these were sprinkled, it was time to top with some more blue.
Following this, it was time to make a hole in the middle of the bomb and then place in the popping candy which is an essential part of the Intergalactic bathing experience as when the popping candy interacts with the water, a symphony of sound happens in the bathtub.
Now it was time for the other half which was a case of repeating the latter without the popping candy and then instead of creating a hole, it was time to create a mound.
After the mound was created, it was time to take a big breath and smoosh the two bath bomb halves together,
Et voila! That’s a Intergalactic Bath Bomb made by me, Jamie. All there was to do after that was for the bath bomb to be bagged up and left for at least 24 hours to set and then it would be ready to be used.
If you want to see what a fresh handmade by Jamie Intergalactic Bath Bomb from Lush is like in the water then go over to my instagram (thejamiesowden).
The wonderful staff at Lush White Rose allowed me to make another one for Luke to take home and use which was fantastic.
