How to wrap your bath bombs - Bath-bomb Kit Tutorial #4

I hope you are having fun experimenting with your Bathbomb Making Kit!

It feels great doesn't it when you finally get the knack of unmoulding without it crumbling! Don't be disheartened if it does crumble - still use it in your bath. It will fizz away and still release its lovely aromas and skin moisturising jojoba oil. I always have a jar on the go of 'home use' mishapes and crumbles.  

So let's talk about wrapping and displaying your bathbombs!

Its not actually necessary that you wrap your bath bombs. A display of bath bombs, like the image below, are so tactile and the aromas are amazing. Think of a LUSH store and how appealing everything looks. This is perfect if your bath bombs are just for personal use. A lovely open wire basket, crate or jar can be used and look so inviting!

However, when openly displayed they will be open to the damp atmosphere and risk of contamination. So if you want to store them for any length of time do wrap them or give them as a homemade gift then the hygenic, and practical, option is to wrap them. If wrapped immediately, once fully dry, in a clean environment, your bathbombs should remain perfect for at least 6 months.

 What can I use to wrap my bath-bomb?

Any plastic wrap is probably the easiest option as most households have clingfilm in the house. Wrapping them even temporarily will mean you can think about fancy packaging ideas in your own time and re-wrap at a later date. Usually items that are suitable for food will also be suitable for wrapping your bathbombs. I've used clear and self sealable, individual, cookie bags for my bathbombs in the past. However I'm sourcing eco friendly zerowaste packaging options as it's important to me long term. I will share soon the sources of plant based 'plastic' bags that will compost or biodegrade if it goes into landfill. 

How inventive  will also depend on the size and shape of your final bathbombs.
