5. Prep your molds and use a spoon to fill the molds halfway. Using a silicone spatula, press the mixture into the molds firmly. Spray each mold with a small bit of water (one spray) and press down again to make sure they’re firm.

Be careful here – using too much water will cause the bombs to lose their fizz. And if you don’t press down firmly, the bombs will not hold together.

7. Close the molds. Let set for 24 hours before removing from molds.

    1. Yes, just be sure to top them off with more of the mixture after you press them down. You want to make sure that they are packed firmly AND full. I hope that makes sense 🙂

  1. Could You use soap molds, like in the shape of flowers, instead of the half ball molds? Thank you for this recipe, I would like to make them for my daughter, she gets migraines, and these might help her to relax.

  2. Can something else be substituted for the lavender I am allergic to lavender but I have migraine headaches and would really like to find something that would help.

  3. The mica powder left a residue all over my tub and me. Is this normal? Am I doing something wrong?

  4. The witch hazel, what brand do you use? My daughter and I (and most of my family, really) suffer bad from migraines and I’ve actually never heard of this. Thank you.
