Bath Ice cream is just like a bath bomb, it really just has a different name. But because it's called ice cream you can really have some fun with different scents.
They look great stacked up in a large bowl with fake cardboard wafers amongst them. Your only limited by your imagination.
Or add a scoop of icecream to a sundae glass filled with bath salts, pop in a spoon for a fun sundae gift.
Combine the dry ingredients in bowl and stir until well mixed.
Drizzle in the almond oil and stir until mixture is moistened. Add more oil and fragrance and stir until well mixed.
Then add the water.
If mixture is crumbly then add more oil or a dash of water.
Roll the Mixture into a ball using your hands or press it into a lightly oiled mold, such as a round Bath Bomb mold or use an ice cream scoop to mold it. Let it slip out from the mold.
Put the ball on a sheet of wax paper and leave it to dry till it is hard. It make take several days.
To Use: Add 1 bomb to the bath under running water for a lovely fizzing relaxing bath.
