SLS Noodles

For a foaming bath bomb effect add sls noodle to dry ingredients before mixing once bath bomb is dry .. Drop one in the bath tub n watch it bubble up  :)
SLS is safe to use once mixed with dry ingredients. 
you can also get this in powdered form .

Colour:you can either use Water based or Dry colourant.  mica powders/ oxides( for soaps + bath bomb making) if using these mix with carrier oil for better reults as they are not water soluble.

Tips and tricks

It is easier to use GranularCitric Acid as a beginner or for kids project, personal use, But to  improve the look and finish of the bath bomb, use Powdered or very fine Citric Acid.

Adding corn starch can also help with d apperance of finished bath bombs.
Sensitivity test put a lil drop of fragrance oil being used on skin wait 15 mins, if no irritation occurs or itching .. Its fine
If bath bombs crack or crumble , try leaving in the mould over night. 
Too much water in dry ingriedients can make bath bombs bubble up or soufflé as I call it .. If that occurs the mix was too wet ..
most moulds for cake making and soap making, chocolate making can also be used.
Get a Spary bottle helps when adding water to mix .  
Always mix in dry ingredients properly with colour  to avoide with bits.
