Bath Bombs: What Are They & How Do They Work?

Bath Bombs are created using sodium bicarbonate [baking soda] & citric acid. By combining these two substances & then tossing those into a bath tub filled with water a fizzing effect will occur; like the effervescence of soda. Baking soda & citric acid are also good for your skin. They both relax muscles & soften skin.

There are other ingredients usually added to bath bombs to make them smell good & feel even better. Dead Sea salts are added to help soothe & detoxify. Essential oils smell fantastic & provide therapeutic aromatherapy benefits. Natural dyes from fruit & vegetables can also be added to make the water turn a beautiful color.

These photos below will show how a bath bomb works in action!

Hammy Egg Cups Recipe

ham-egg-cups

To make Hammy Egg Cups, try the following recipe:

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Lightly butter or oil the cups of a muffin pan.

Take one or two slices of ham & line each cup of the muffin pan with them.

Place shredded cheese at the bottom of the ham cups.
OPTIONAL: Add garlic, dill, peppers, onions, mushrooms or whatever you like to spice up your eggs with.

Then crack an egg into each ham cup. Scramble the eggs if you like them firm. (This can be done in a separate cup to make things easier)

Place muffin pan in oven & cook for about 10 minutes, until the top of the eggs look firm & the top of the ham is browned.

Add cheese, salt & pepper to taste.

Serving suggestion: if you DON’T scramble your eggs, serve the cups with toast for dunking. This is a traditional English breakfast. Perhaps some tea & scones?
