    Blending Procedure:

    1. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Make a "well" in the middle of the ingredients. Set aside.

    2. In a separate container, combine the wet ingredients together. Pour them into the well of dry ingredients.

    3. Mix everything together well using a large spoon, then pour the mixture into a food processor to remove all of the lumps and distribute the color evenly.

    4. Once mixed, pack the mixture tightly into large plastic molds, each large enough to hold half of the mixture (or just use one big plastic mold of any shape that will hold the mixture). I find that the easiest way to get the product out of the molds without breakage is to line the molds with a bit of cooking spray first. They tend to break up less this way.

    5. Leave them in a dry place overnight and once they've hardened, they're ready to go!!

    "Sounds like a great recipe, but as a rank beginner, I would like a bit more info, such as what kind of mold?...where do you get such a mold...I was thinking of making the small square "fizzies," like you see in bath shops, wrapping with gold foil to make as stocking stuffers...but I don't know if this recipe would work well...maybe I could use an ice tray for a mold for individual "fizzies?" Any comments appreciated, thanks!"

    "Great recipe! I made some bath bombs as a gift for my sister, and she loved them. They took a lot longer than overnight to dry, though."
