    Using fragrance oils

    At what ratio of the Fo to p80 to carrier? I was reading a 2:1 cartier to poly ratio and that fo doesn’t need to be factored in, but what if I don’t include carrier oil, then how much poly? Or what if the amount of Fo I use is more than the carrier I use? The how much poly?

    Using fragrance oils

    Can you omit the carrier oil and only use FO and P80? Do you have to add the FO and p80 together and mix and add then to the dry mix or can you add the FO on its own

    How to enhance fragrance in bath bombs

    Yes I saw this! I went out and brought some and gave it a go. It definitely gave my bath bombs a stronger scent, but I’m still not 100% on how to actually use it. Like, do I just add the FO to the NSB (natrasorb) or do I add the FO, Carrier oil and P80 (polysorbate 80) together - mix - then add...

    Has anyone ever had any luck making a bath bomb that turns the bath water deep black without leaving tub staining, or staining on skin, and is also safe? 😂 How did you do it? What colourant did you use?

    BathBomb techniques?

    Bathbomb “techniques”, do they exist? What are they? Surely there has got to be some special ‘techniques’ when it comes to producing bathbombs.. it can’t solely be the recipe right? For example, I had read somewhere that some people poke holes in their bath bombs to help them float...
