    I was curious, I have read that pregnant women or people with high blood pressure cannot use Epsom salt, this this correct?

    Yum! Lots of skin-loving ingredients in there! Great recipe! Helichrysum – ooh-la-la!

    Do you think if I added any powdered milk product to that, I’d need a preservative? If so, which one & how much?

    • Hi Patricia!

      As long as you don’t add any water to the product in the air-tight container, you wouldn’t need a preservative if you added powdered milk to the rest of the dry ingredients. Be sure to let us know how your batch turns out, we’d love to hear your feedback! =)

    Just wondering if someone has already done the math. If I ordered with the “add to cart” button, how many batches could be made before I ran out of the first ingredient?

    • Hi Pat!

      The ingredients that you receive for the kit will make about 1-2 batches until you run out of the first ingredients (which will be the Colloidal Oatmeal and Lavender Buds). We would love for you to make this recipe and let us know what you think of it! =)

    i was wondering if you are able to incorporate bath bomb mix in with a soap as you make it?

    • Hi Raelene!

      Unfortunately, if you mixed the bath bomb mixture into your soap it would start to fizz before you even got into the shower. If you could tell me a bit more about the recipe you are working with, I could suggest some ideas on how to make it bubblier! =)

    Can I make my own colloidal oatmeal for this by grinding and drying or should I use store bought? Thanks!

  6. Stephanie says:

    Hello thanks for sharing the recipe Im in AUS and keen to give it a to. Just a question, can I store it inside the Muslin bags? Then just grab one when I wish to use it?
    Instead of storing in the jar?
    Could it be put in a tea bag also?

    Look forward to your reply :)

    • Good morning, Stephanie!

      The reason we suggest storing it in a jar, is because the jar is airtight and keeps out any moisture that could get into it and start growing mold or microbes. You could put it into a tea bag as long as you kept that tea bag in an airtight space. I hope that this helps! =)

    I ordered with the “add to cart” option and did not have enough colloidal oatmeal for even one batch! The recipe calls for 1/2 cup and I was given barely 1/3 cup with my order. To compensate I ground old fashioned oats to make my own colloidal oatmeal. I could not get mine as fine as the Bramble Berry colloidal oatmeal, but since it will be scooped into a muslin bag I hope it won’t matter.

    Hi, I was just wondering if the Aloe Extract is the same at Aloe Vera Gel? Finding it difficult to find extract in Australia?

    • Amanda says:

      Hi Nicki!

      Aloe Extract and Aloe Vera Gel are indeed different products. Where Aloe Vera Extract is a thinner liquid, while Aloe Vera Gel is a thicker product. If you are unable to find Aloe Vera Extract, it is not totally essential for this recipe. You could swap it with another extract as well, like Chamomile or Green Tea Extracts! :)

    If you make this with the essential oils and then place in a plastic jar until it is sold will the scent still be there say 3 months down the line or is it better to just scent it before you ship it out?

    • Amanda says:

      Good morning!

      I would probably recommend scenting this product before you send it, just to make sure the scent stays nice and strong and does not fade :)

  10. Valerie says:

    How many oz should I put into each muslin bag? Right now, I am filling them 1/2 to 3/4 full. Also, do you empty the contents of the bag into the bath or simply drop the bag into the tub still tied up?

    • Amanda says:

      Hi Valerie!

      We did not measure how many ounces we placed into each bag, we just filled them about 1/2 to 3/4 of the way full, so you’re doing it right! :) The bag can be dropped into the bag loosely tied, or you can empty the contents, whichever you prefer :)
