Colour- Most food colouring can be used or any water based or powdered colour from a supplier of ingredients for bath and body products.

If you are a beginner its worth remembering that smaller bath bombs are easier to make than big ones as the big ones tend to crumble more easily, whereas the smaller ones are more robust.

Start off with a small batches first until your confident, also remember that the weather conditions can effect bath bombs, if its humid or raining when you are making them then you need to use less water in your mix or it will start fizzing and you will end up with a bubbling heap, Its trial and error but you will get the hang of it.

Those ingredients seem extremely hard to find. Can you get all these items at a health food store or do you have to go to several different places? Can you substitute some of the ingredients? Are they expensive?

bicarbonate of soda = baking soda. Citric acid found with canning supplies. Essential oils can be found at craft stores or make your own perfume place. Pretty much all of the ingredients can be found at a grocery store (though some don't carry citric acid year round or at all). The only thing that might be difficult to find is the essential oil for the scent. I have heard you can use cream of tartar instead of citric acid.
