    Essential oil ratio in bath bombs

    Is 3-5 drops of essential oil for every 1 tbsp of carrier oil a good ratio to use? I'm looking for the strongest smell but that is at a safe level. I've googled this for hours, everything I come across talks about ratios for soap, which I would imagine would be drastically different for bath...

    Witch hazel for bath bombs

    I purchased witch hazel from Brambleberry to use for making bath bombs. They say that their Witch Hazel is 14-15% alcohol. Is this a good amount of alchol to have ? I thought I read here it should be 90% or more alchol but I may be mistaken. What type of witch hazel would you recommend? TIA

    embeds for bath bombs

    This is something that I haven't learned about yet. Are the embeds placed in the middle before molding or on the side for decoration? What is the purpose? Does it help fizz more? Is the embeds consist of just citric acid and baking soda? Thanks!

    I've seen a few people say that they use coconut oil as their main carrier oil for their bath bombs. I am using coconut oil 76 degrees. It's solid in a tub, I melt it before using. Is this what everyone else is doing too? I'm wondering if the oil I am using is the reason why it's taking...
