If you have had problems making your bombs hold, Holly Port's recipes are the trick you need! I have tried 5 of the recipes with great success - even to the point of dropping one on the floor about 30 mins after molding, and that Mondo bath bomb didn't break! I've been in love since. Follow her recipes, and you'll have great luck, too - regardless of where you live! (I live in the Dallas area, and I make bath bombs year round, including the Spring when our humidity holds at about 50-60%.
This book has some helpful tips. It was fairly short, I read it in a day. I was hoping for some in-depth, rousing discussions on bath bomb chemistry, help for all the seemingly unexplainable problems that bath bomb makers often encounter, and some definite ideas of how to improve your success, as well as WHY those ideas work. This book doesn't have very much of that. The discussion part of the book could probably be summarized in about 10 pages; the rest is recipes. I was a little dissappointed. Perhaps I was expecting too much, but I thought this book was supposed to be the epitome of bath bomb making books. I can't quite catch just what it was that is so different from the author's methods than anyone else's. The author doesn't explain very well why she uses certain key ingredients. I have yet to try any of her suggestions or recipes (though I am planning to), so maybe they will prove more helpful than I think once I try them. But I think the book is worth more around $15 than $24.
Reply from Bramble BerryHi Olivia! Thank you so much for your feedback. We've found that this is one of the most comprehensive bath bomb books we've seen to date, but we really appreciate hearing what you think of the books! We'd also love to hear what you think after you've tried out some of the recipes. I'll be emailing you to discuss this further.
