  1. It is one full cup + 1/4 cup of baking soda.
    Great recipe as well as all the other bathbomb recipes on this site.
    Did substitute the sweet almond oil to grapeseed oil (a lot cheaper:) and worked great!

  2. is it 1 and 1/4 cups of the first ingredient or is the one just for 1st ingredient is…???????? help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! im confused.

  3. Works great if you don’t put in the 1/2-2tbsp water. Just use oil!!! Very fizzy & smelled great.
