Bath Time Fun

Not a food recipe today, but certainly related to food intolerance.  Bicarbonate of soda and epsom salts baths are two “antidotes” that can be used for dealing with food reactions.  These are also the two ingredients used in many commercial batch products, unfortunately the commercial ones usually have essential oils, colours and other things that we want to avoid – especially if the bath is in response to a reaction!

I was given some bath bombs for Christmas and thought it was a shame that Oscar couldn’t enjoy them like I did as kid.  So I decided to fix that and after a bit of searching found a lot of recipes for making bath products.  I combined a few recipes and methods, left out the essential oils and colours and made my own bath bombs and Epsom salt bath cubes.

Oscar was a bit reluctant to try them in his bath.  But that soon changed once I crushed one up and showed him how to make a volcano!

Science experiment - putting bath bombs to good use.
