For this recipe we will be using citric acid and baking soda. Citric Acid can be used for many different industries and products. It can be used for medicinal purposes, skin care, hair care, bath and body products, soaping, and cleaning purposes. When used in soaps, it works as a water softener, and helps to produce better foam. When used in bath bombs and combined with baking soda, citric acid is responsible for the actual “fizzing” action of the bath bombs. Baking soda. Many skin care benefits come from baking soda. It gives the skin a silky and soft feeling, helps to treat many skin conditions and is also great for exfoliating the skin. For hair care, baking soda can be used in a rinse to make the hair softer and give it a silky feeling.

Green Tea Bath Bomb Recipe: French Green Clay PowderGreen Tea Bath Bomb Recipe: French Green Clay Powder

French green clay powder is a perfect addition to this bath bomb recipe. French Green Clay is the most frequently used clay by health professionals and spas to treat skin conditions, to nourish the skin, and to remove impurities. This clay is light green in color when dry, but turns dark green when wetting agents are added.  The reason French green clay is green is because it contains actual decomposed plant material; making French green clay very nutritious for the skin. It contains some very important minerals such as,  Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Sodium, Potassium, Copper, and Selenium.  Since French Green Clay powder is so full of healthy minerals, it can be added to mineral baths to help nourish the skin, remove impurities, relieve sunburn, and to aide in the relief of arthritis pain.

Green Tea Bath Bomb Recipe: Let’s Get Started

To begin with, you will need two mixing bowls. The first mixing bowl will be for your dry ingredients and the second bowl will be for your wet ingredients.

In your first bowl, weigh out 300 grams Citric Acid, 600 grams Baking Soda. Using your hands or a large mixing spoon, combine these ingredients together until fully mixed. Set this bowl aside, while you get the wet ingredients together.

Now you will take the second bowl of mixture and weigh out 5 grams of the cut and sifted green tea and the 5 grams of bentonite clay powder. Give this a good mix together using your hands.

 

Green Tea Bath Bomb Recipe: Using the Witch Hazel

At this time, we will begin using the witch hazel that was prepped earlier in your spray bottle. Begin with the first bowl and spray the mixture while mixing the contents with your hands. You want to keep spritzing and mixing until you have a crumbly dough-like consistency throughout all the bath bomb dough. Once the first bowl is done, you will set that aside and do the same with the second bowl.

 

Green Tea Bath Bomb Recipe: Creating the First Half of the Bath Bomb

Now you will be forming the bath bomb and for this you will need your bath bomb molds. Keep in mind that each mold set will consist of two differently shaped parts. So, take one half of the bath bomb mold and fill it with the mixture that contains the green tea powder. Pack this into the mold half tightly and compactly.

Now you are going to put the bath bomb together. Before doing so, lightly mist each half of the bomb with the witch hazel. Then, press the two halves together tightly. The mold should snap together. You can set this mold aside to set up and continue the process of packing the halves of the molds and putting them together with the remainder of the dough. This recipe makes 6 bath bombs.

 

Green Tea Bath Bomb Recipe: Letting Them Set Up

Finally, you will give your bath fizzies enough time to set up. This can be anywhere from 24-48 hours depending on the humidity of your environment. Keep your bath bombs in a cool, dry area away from places that they could get knocked down or roll away.

 

Green Tea Bath Bomb Recipe: Ready to Use

You can choose to keep your bath bombs in their molds until you are ready to use them. This makes selling or giving your creations easy, clean and simple! However, if you wish, you can also remove the bombs from their molds and package them how you prefer. When it’s time for a bath, simply drop a bath bomb into some warm, running bath water.

Bath Bombs vs Bubble Bars


This entry was posted in bath and body, bath bombs, Bubble Bars, Natures Garden, Soap making supplies and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

Bath Bombs vs Bubble BarsBath Bombs vs Bubble Bars

We are often asked about what the differences are between a bath bomb and a bubble bar.  The short answer, you will get fizz with bath bombs vs bubble bars which produce foam.  However, below, we will go into a little more detail.  In addition, we will show you a couple of bath bomb recipes and bubble bar recipes.

Bath Bombs vs Bubble Bars: Bath Bombs

First, let’s take a closer look at bath bombs.  We will talk about why they fizz and how to make them.  So, learn how to color them, scent them, and create them.

Bath Bombs:  Why Do They Fizz?

First, let’s look at bath bombs, also known as bath fizzies.  I am sure you have looked at videos of bath bombs fizzy and creating beautiful colors and designs in bath water.  Well, do you ever wonder why they fizz?  A basic bath bomb is created by combining citric acid with baking soda.  Now, once that combination is placed in water, a chemical reaction is produced.  The product of that chemical reaction is carbon dioxide.  The carbon dioxide is what causes all that fizzing.

Bath Bombs:  How Are They Made?

Creating a very basic bath bomb is quite simple.  You simply mix baking soda and citric acid together.  Once you have mixed your ingredients together, you will begin to lightly mist the mixture with witch hazel.  Witch hazel basically causes the ingredients to slightly react, in the same way water would.  Then, the powders in your mixture are able to attach to each other, thus they can be put in a mold, and once setup, your bath bomb is ready to use.

Although that is all it really takes to create a bath fizzy, you can make it more interesting and beneficial.  Some will add oil to give their skin a little extra love.  Cosmetic clays can also be added to harden the bath bombs and provide your skin with extra nourishment.  The sky really is the limit from micas to herbs, and foaming agents to corn starch.  Of course, bath bombs can also be scented and colored.

Bath Bombs:  How Are They Colored?

We are often asked by clients, how they should color their bath bombs.  Since we carry several types of colorants, it can be a little confusing.  There really are a few ways you could color your bath bombs.  First, you could use Da Bomb Soap Dyes.  These are simply FD&C dyes.  Yes, they will work, BUT since they are water based, they will cause your bath fizzies a slightly activate.  I highly recommend the FUN Soap Colorants.  The FUN Soap Colorants are pigments dispersed in vegetable glycerin.  They stay vibrant and true to color.  They are my personal choice for coloring bath bombs.  However, you can also use natural herbal colorants.

To add color to your bath bombs, simply add the colorant right to your powdered mixture.  Then, use your hands to mix the ingredients together.  It can take quite a bit of mixing to get the colorant fully dispersed.  Of course,  I would highly recommend wearing gloves.  When using multiple colors, you would want to wear clean gloves for each color that you are mixing.

Bath Bombs:  How Are They Scented?

Bath bombs can be scented very easily.  They can be scented with either body safe essential oils or fragrance oils.  As far as the amount of fragrance oil or essential oil to use in a bath bomb, generally our maximum recommendation for fragrance oil is 5% in a body product, but when creating a bath bomb, we tend to use around 1%-3%.  Ultimately though, you don’t want to use any more than 10% total liquids in your bath bomb recipe.

Bath Bombs:  What Kind of Mold Should I Use?

As far as molds and shapes, you really have numerous options.  You can mold them in a round acrylic molds, place them in silicone molds, place them in a jar, or even scoop them!  In fact, bath bombs can even be formed with your hands, just like you would pack a snow ball.

Bath Bombs:  A Few Bath Bomb Tutorials

Below, I will give links to a few bath bomb tutorials.  I will link you to one of each type so, whether you want to mold them, hand sculpt them, scoop them, place them in a jar, or add a little foam, you will find something below.

A Few Bath Bomb Tutorials: Sphere Bath Bombs

First, we will talk about traditional round sphere bath bombs.  To the left, you will see our Sinus Relief Bath Bomb Recipe.  I chose this recipe because, not only does it use peppermint powder as a natural colorant, it also incorporates bentonite clay powder and cut and sifted spearmint leaves.  Finally, it is scented with Natures Garden’s Sinus Relief Fragrance Oil.

A Few Bath Bomb Tutorials: Hand Sculpted Bath Bombs

Now, let’s talk about hand sculpted bath bombs like our Camouflage Bath Bomb Recipe.  So, I know what you’re thinking.  That bath bomb looks round, why can I just use a mold.  Well, to get the army toy in there and the camo look, we needed to hand sculpt it.  You see, this bath bomb has an army toy inside that will come out when it is used.  In addition, we wanted to add camo colors.  So, the best way to create our bath bomb was to hand sculpt it.  Can you imagine, how much your kid would love this bath bomb with a toy that surprises him at bath time?

A Few Bath Bomb Tutorials: Silicone Mold Bath Bombs

Next, we have bath bombs that are placed in silicone molds.  Our Mother’s Day Bath Bomb Recipe is the perfect example.  This bath bomb not only uses a silicone mold, it also uses arrowroot powder and calendula flowers.  Lastly, we scented these bath bombs with Happy and Free Fragrance Oil.  The nice thing about a silicone mold is that it makes removing your finished product a breeze.  Just use caution when choosing your silicone mold.  If you choose one that has too much detail, it may not come through in your finished products very well.

A Few Bath Bomb Tutorials: Ice Cream Scoop Bath Bombs

This type of bath bomb breaks the mold, using an ice cream scoop to create our bath fizzies.  Simply, scoop the bath fizzy mixture just like you would real ice cream.  Give this Rainbow Sherbet Bath Fizzies Recipe a try!  This recipe uses our FUN Soap Colorants for a vibrant rainbow sherbet color!  But, it doesn’t stop there, it’s also scented with Natures Garden’s Rainbow Sherbet Fragrance Oil.

A Few Bath Bomb Tutorials: Bath Bombs That Foam

Now, let’s talk about a sort of bath bomb/bubble bar combo.  Ok, so while it isn’t really a combo in terms of creating a full bubble bath, it will produce a little bit of foam.  The foam is created by the addition of a foaming agent such as SLS, SLSA, or SCI.  Take, for example, our Foaming Rose Petal Bath Bomb recipe.  This rose petal bath bomb contains SCI, so, not only will it fizz, it will also foam.  In addition, SCI, or Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate is a gentle surfactant.  It will leave your skin feeling soft and silky smooth.

A Few Bath Bomb Tutorials: Bath Bombs in a Jar

Finally, bath fizzies can also be placed in a jar.  Then, you can simply place a few spoonfuls of the mixture into your bath water.  However, the mixture can also be placed in a disposable tea bag so you can add herbs without them getting in the tub and going down the drain.  For example, our Fairy Dust Bath Fizzy Recipe will show you how to do just that!  In addition, we added some diamond dust mica pigment to give the fizzy some sparkle and shine!

Bath Bombs vs Bubble Bars: Bubble Bars

Next, let’s look at bubble bars.  While bubble bars are not quite as popular as bath bombs, they are quickly gaining in popularity.  This leaves many people wondering exactly what they are.  While bath bombs fizz, bubble bars produce a ton of bubbles for a relaxing bubble bath.

Bubble Bars:  Why Do They Bubble?

Bubble bars are perfect when you are looking for the ultimate bubble bath.  But, why do they bubble?  The main reason is due to surfactants that are added to bubble bars.  For more information on surfactants, and to read our free class, click here.  Bubble bars contain ingredients such as Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate or Sodium Lauryl Sulfate.  These ingredients are foaming agents that produce the bubbles in your bath tub.  My personal favorite surfactant is sodium cocoyl isethionate or SCI.

Bubble Bars:  How Are They Made?

A bubble bar’s bubbles are created with a foaming agent, such as SLS or SCI.  However, there are several other ingredients used as well.  First, baking soda, corn starch, and cream of tartar are the powdered base of a bubble bar.  In addition, vegetable glycerin is added to moisten the ingredients, turning it into a dough.  Once a bubble bar is formed, no matter the shape or type, it will need time to harden.  It can take several days for the bubble bars to harden.  However, once they have hardened, they can be crumbled under warm running bath water and will create a bubble bath.  While it is a solid bar, it will create a bubble bath the same way a traditional liquid bubble bath would.

Bubble Bars:  How Are They Colored?

When coloring a bubble bar, you can use either our Da Bomb Soap Dyes or our FUN Soap Colorants.  Either one will work in a bubble bar.  Both will create a beautifully colored bubble bar.  In addition, you can add powdered herbs to naturally color your bubble bars.

Bubble Bars:  How Are They Scented?

Bubble bars can be scented with any of Natures Garden’s body safe fragrance oils.  We recommend using 1%-2% of the concentrated fragrance oil in your bubble bar recipe.

Bubble Bars:  How Do I Shape the Bubble Bars?

Bubble bars are formed, often times, into a rolled loaf, then, sliced like a loaf of bread.  However, they can also be hand formed into a variety of shapes.  You can create a unicorn horn, a rainbow, an animal, a flower, or even ice cream scoops.  The possibilities are endless.

Bubble Bars:  How Are They Used?

Bubble bars are very simple to use.  You simply crumble a bubble bar under warm running water.  Then, your bath tub will fill with bubbles.

Below, we will talk about a few of the bubble bar recipes we have created.  We will talk about the scoopable bubble bars as well as one of our rolled bubble bars recipes.  These tutorials will give you step by step instruction on creating bubble bars.

A Few Bubble Bar Tutorials:  Scoopable Bubble Bars

First, one of our scooped bubble bar recipes.  The dough for these types of bubble bars are created just like any bubble bar.  Then, it is place in the mixing bowl.  Finally, it is scooped just like ice cream.  Then, the ice cream scoop bubble bars simply need time to setup before using them.  You can create our Galaxy Bubble Bars, pictured to the left, in this manner.

A Few Bubble Bar Tutorials: Rolled Bubble Bars

Now, we will talk about a rolled loaf bubble bar recipe.  This type of bubble bar is rolled out just like cookie dough.  You can create multiples layers simply placing rolled out layers directly on top of each other.  Then, you roll the bubble bar dough, in the same manner, you would roll up a pumpkin roll or a jelly roll.  Finally, you simply slice the rolled like just like you would a loaf of bread.  Once the bubble bar hardens, you can use a slice for your bubble bath.  To use your bubble bar, simply crumble a slice under your warm running bath water.

Hopefully, this helps to give you an understanding bath bombs vs bubble bars. Both have a wonderful and fun purpose but they are two different types of products.  If you are looking for even more bubble bar or bath bomb tutorials, click here.  You will find an array of recipes that you can create and use at home or for your business.

Sugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe

Sugar Plum Bath Fizzies RecipeSugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe

Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy Fragrance Oil is my personal favorite Christmas fragrance oil.  This fragrance oil from Natures Garden was the perfect fragrance for these bath bombs.  Often times, here at Natures Garden, we are inspired by pictures we see, things we see out shopping, and nature, of course.  Well this Sugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe was no exception.  We were actually inspired by some Christmas ornaments we saw on Pinterest.  These sparkly purple ornaments from Smile Mercantile are perfect for the season.  We absolutely adored these ornaments and were inspired to create these handcrafted bath bombs to share with all of you.  While the sparkle of these bath bombs is not as apparent in the picture to the left, rest assured they sparkle like crazy!

Sugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe: Information About the Ingredients in the Bath Bomb Recipe

Now, let’s talk about some the ingredients we will be using.  While some of our ingredients are pretty self explanatory, some of you may want a little more information on others.  So, below, we will talk about some of the ingredients in our bath bomb recipe.

Sugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe: Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy Fragrance Oil

Sugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe: Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy Fragrance OilIn this recipe we use Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy Fragrance Oil.  This Christmas scent is perfect for the holidays.  Now, let’s talk a little bit about how this fabulous Christmas fragrance oil smells.

Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy Fragrance Oil is a charming fragrance oil by Natures Garden which is filled with surprises to delight all of the senses with plums, dark cherries and sweet oranges enhanced with clove, cinnamon, and peppery woodsy undertones.

Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy Fragrance Oil Top Notes:

Plum, Black Cherries, Strawberries, Mandarin, Orange

Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy Fragrance Oil Middle Notes:

Black Pepper, Clove, Cinnamon

Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy Fragrance Oil Base Notes:

Sandalwood, Eucalyptus

 

Natures Garden’s Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy Fragrance Oil was inspired by, what else, the Nutcracker’s Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.  For those that are not familiar, it is performed in Act 2 of the famous 1892 ballet.  The music for the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy was written by Tchaikovsky.  It was also choreographed by Lev Ivanov.  The original Sugar Plum Fairy was portrayed by Antonietta Dell’Era.  However, although the role was created for the prima ballerina of the Nutcracker, the Sugar Plum Fairy did very little dancing in the original number.  This did not go over well with critics and thus, attempts were made to extend the number, incorporating more dancing into this role.

Sugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe: Sodium Cocoyl IsethionateSugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe: Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate

Since this is a fairly new product here at Natures Garden, we will talk a little bit about how it truly kicks your bath bombs up a notch.  First, sodium cocoyl isethionate from Natures Garden comes in granulated form.  After testing various forms, we found this one to be the easiest to work with.  It doesn’t float in the air like the powdered form.  Some places may sell it in a needle form, we prefer the granules.  When this ingredient is added to your products, one of the most obvious will be the foaming you will notice when your bath bomb is activated.  Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate will create bubbles, yes, but that is only one of the wonderful things about this ingredient.  In addition, you will love the way it makes your skin feel.  After adding this product in your bath fizzies, your skin will be left feeling silky soft, clean, and refreshed.  It is a very gentle cleaning and foaming agent that I have no doubt you will become obsessed with.  I know I have!

Sugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe: Citric AcidSugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe: Citric Acid

Citric acid it one of the ingredients found in bath bombs that helps to create the fizzing action.  You see, it is the combination of baking soda and citric acid that creates the fizzing of the bath bomb.  Citric acid is found naturally in citrus fruits, it is a natural acid.  It is also used in other cosmetic recipes to lower lower the pH level.

Sugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe: Baking SodaSugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe: Baking Soda

Baking soda, also called sodium bicarbonate, is a natural alkaline that is used in cosmetic formulations.  Adding baking soda to your bath will help leave your skin soft and silky feeling.  It is also wonderful on your hair when used in a rinse it will leave your hair silky and smooth.  It is wonderful in cleaning formulas to lift dirt, and remove oils.  In fact, it once saved my carpet.  I had spilled a glass of red wine all over my carpet and couch.  Immediately I poured baking soda generously all over the area, about a half an hour or so later I vacuumed the area and you couldn’t even tell where I spilled it.  The wine had completely vanished.  Baking soda, like we talked about earlier, is combined with citric acid to make bath fizzies.  Baking soda can be used in other types of recipes as well.  In fact, when used with borax, you can make soap, laundry detergent, and dishwasher detergent.  Baking soda is also used in other natural household cleaner formulas.   When used in cleaning recipes, baking soda has natural deodorizing qualities.

Sugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe: Ingredients

Sugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe: Ingredients: Other Supplies You Will Need

Witch Hazel (in spray bottle)
6- Clear Round Acrylic Fillable Ornaments
Mixing Bowls
Mixing Spoon
Scale

Sugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe: Total Recipe Amounts

166 grams Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate
512 grams Citric Acid
1,120 grams Baking Soda
18 grams Macadamia Nut Oil
16 grams Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy Fragrance Oil
2 grams Diamond Dust Mica
4 grams Ultramarine Violet FUN Soap Colorant

Sugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe: Prior to Starting

Before we begin there are a few things we will go over.  First, when creating bath bombs you don’t really want there to be a lot of humidity in the air.  Bath bombs fizz when you add them to your bath water due to the combination of baking soda and citric acid.  So, the same thing can happen to your bath fizzies if you have a lot of humidity.  Now it isn’t like they are going to just start fizzing like crazy while they’re sitting on your table.  However, it will activate the outer surface of your bath bombs.  Then, you will end up with little dimples on your bath bombs.

Today, we will be using fillable ornament as our bath bomb molds.  You will need a total of six, medium sized ornaments.  While you can use any size you would like really, we used a medium size and created six bath bombs with this recipe.  You will want to have these out and in your work area.

Next, we will be using witch hazel to create our bath fizzies.  This should also be prepared prior to starting this bath bombs recipe.  You can use one of our bullet bottles to hold it.  Place your witch hazel in a bullet bottle and put your fine mist sprayer on top.

Finally, clean your work area and remove anything that is not related to this project.  This will help things flow easily.  In addition, make sure you have cleaned any other bowls, molds, or spoons you will be using.  I also suggest wearing an apron and protective gear.  It isn’t like baking soda is harmful, it just likes to float in the air when you are preparing it for your bath bombs.

Sugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe: Preparing the Dry Ingredients

When creating a bath fizzy, we always prepare our dry ingredients separately from our wet ingredients.  This will allow us to remove any clumps in these ingredients.  So, first, we will go ahead and get this ready.

Sugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe: Preparing the Dry IngredientsSugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe: Total Dry Ingredient Weights
166 grams Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate
512 grams Citric Acid
1,120 grams Baking Soda
Sugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe: Weighing Out the Dry Ingredient Weights

We will start by preparing the dry ingredients for our bath fizzies.  You will need a deep mixing bowl.  Then, add 166 grams sodium cocoyl isethionate, 512 grams citric acid, and 1120 grams baking soda.  Use clean, gloved hands to mix all of the ingredients together.  Be sure to break up any clumps you find in the mixture as you are mixing.

Sugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe: Preparing the Wet Ingredients

Next, we will prepare our wet ingredients.  This will include our Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies Fragrance Oil, FUN Soap Colorant, and Macadamia Nut Oil.

Sugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe: Preparing the Wet IngredientsSugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe: Total Wet Ingredient Weights

18 grams Macadamia Nut Oil
16 grams Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy Fragrance Oil
4 grams Ultramarine Violet FUN Soap Colorant

 

Sugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe: Weighing Out and Adding the Wet Ingredients

Now, we will begin weighing out the wet ingredients.  You will need a small mixing bowl or glass.  To this bowl, add 18 grams of Macadamia Nut Oil and 16 grams Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy Fragrance Oil.  Add these ingredients to the dry ingredients.  Finally, add 4 grams of the Ultramarine Violet FUN Soap Colorant.

Sugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe: Mixing Your Bath BombsSugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe: Mixing Your Bath Bombs

Next, we will need to mix everything together.  I find it easiest to mix bath bombs with my hands.  So, put clean gloves on and begin mixing the ingredient together.  You will need to make sure that your colorant is evenly and completely mixed.

Once you have your ingredients fully combined, we will begin adding some witch hazel.  You will need the bottle of witch hazel you prepared earlier.  Witch hazel will help the bath bomb stay together so that you can pack it into your molds.  Now, begin by spritzing your bath bomb mixture.  Then, mix the ingredients together.  Continue to spray and mix until your bath bomb dough reaches a crumbly dough consistency.  Once you have achieved the correct consistency, you are ready to begin filling your molds.

Sugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe: Adding the Bath Bomb Mixture to the MoldsSugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe: Adding the Bath Bomb Mixture to the Molds

Now, we will be adding the mixture to the molds.  So, make sure your molds are within arms reach.  Then, begin filling one half of one of your molds.  You want to pack the mixture in tightly.  Then, continue to pack the molds until you run out of bath fizzy mixture.

 

 

Sugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe: Connecting the Two HalvesSugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe: Connecting the Two Halves

Next, we will be putting the bath bombs halves together.  So, you will need two bath bomb halves.  Spray each half with witch hazel and quickly press the two halves together.  Then, do the same with two more halves.  Continue this process until you have all the bath fizzies together.  Allow your bath bombs to setup.

Sugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe: Finishing TouchesSugar Plum Bath Fizzies Recipe: Finishing Touches

Now, we will be adding some sparkling finishing touches.  We will achieve a sparkly sugar look by dusting our bath bombs with diamond dust.  So, you will need to remove the bath bombs from the molds.  Then, place one of your bath bombs in a clean, dry bowl.  Next, sprinkle it all over with diamond dust mica pigment.  Finally, shake the bath fizzy to remove any extra mica. You want to completely cover your bath bombs with mica so that they are super sparkly.  In addition, these bath bombs will leave a super awesome sparkle to your skin when used in your bathtub.

Holly Berry Bath Bombs Recipe Holly Berry Bath Bombs Recipe

Our next Christmas Craft Recipe is our Holly Berry Bath Bombs Recipe.  Now, while this may seem like an ordinary bath bomb, it is nothing but ordinary.  First, we found these festive sprinkles that were the inspiration for our holly berry bath fizzies.  I am in love with them and have to use them for my Christmas Cookies this year!  However, these sprinkles also worked perfectly to go with Natures Garden’s Holly Berry Fragrance Oil.  This fragrance oil smells delightful and happens to be a holiday favorite among the Natures Garden team members.  In addition, we have created the look of snow on the bath fizzies.  While this part was entirely accidental, it truly kicked these bath bombs up a notch, making them my personal favorite recipe of the season.

Holly Berry Bath Bombs Recipe: Ingredients Found at Natures Garden

Holly Berry Bath Bombs Recipe: Other Ingredients and Equipment You Will Need: 

Witch Hazel (in spray bottle)
6- Clear Round Acrylic Fillable Ornaments
Mixing Bowls
Mixing Spoon
Scale
Holly Berry Sprinkles (Find these From Wilton)

Holly Berry Bath Bombs Recipe: Prior to Preparing This Bath Fizzy Recipe

First, you want to make sure your work area is clean.  Also, be sure your mixing bowls and molds are clean and ready to use.  I also highly recommend wearing an apron to protect your clothing and gloves, glasses, and a mask. The glasses and mask are simply because the baking soda tends to float a bit on me when I add it to my bowl.  In addition, you want to prepare a bottle of witch hazel using your bullet bottle and sprayer.  I would also like to note that bath bombs should be prepared in non-humid climates.  Since bath bombs are activated by water, they can be slightly activated by moisture in the air.

Holly Berry Bath Bombs Recipe: Prepare the White Portion

The Holly Berry Bath Bombs Recipe has two colors.  First, we will prepare the white half of the bath fizzies.  This half will also include the holly berries that decorate the bath bombs.  We will also talk about an optional idea at the end to make the white half look like snow!

Holly Berry Bath Bombs Recipe: Total Recipe Amounts for the White Portion:
256 grams Citric Acid
560 grams Baking Soda (Sodium Bicarbonate)
9 grams Safflower Oil
8 grams Holly Berry Fragrance Oil
Holly Berry Bath Bombs Recipe: Prepare the Dry Ingredients for the White PortionHolly Berry Bath Bombs Recipe: Prepare the Dry Ingredients for the White Portion

First, we will prepare the dry ingredients for the white portion of the bath fizzies.  So, in a deep mixing bowl, add 256 grams of Natures Garden’s citric acid.  Then, use your hands to break up any clumps you find.  Then, add 560 grams of baking soda.  Again, use your hands to break up any clumps you may find.  Also, mix the ingredients together as you are breaking up the clumps.  You want to make sure the ingredients are fully mixed and clump free before moving on.

Holly Berry Bath Bombs Recipe: Add the Wet Ingredients for the White Portion
Next, we will be adding the wet ingredients for the white side of the bath fizzies.  To the bowl with the dry ingredients, add 8 grams of Natures Garden’s Holly Berry Fragrance Oil.  Then, add 9 grams of safflower oil to the mixture.  Finally, once again, use your hands to mix the ingredients together.  Continue to mix until the ingredients are completely and thoroughly mixed.  Once the ingredients are mixed, set the bowl aside, we will come back to it.

Holly Berry Bath Bombs Recipe: Prepare the Red Portion

Next, we will prepare the red portion of our Holly Berry Bath Bombs Recipe.  This portion will be the second half of the bath fizzy.  It will simply be an easy bath bomb recipe.  It is just a simple bath bomb, with added oil and red colorant.

Holly Berry Bath Bombs Recipe: Total Recipe Amounts for the Red Portion
256 grams Citric Acid
560 grams Baking Soda (Sodium Bicarbonate)
9 grams Safflower Oil
8 grams Holly Berry Fragrance Oil
6 grams Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant

The dry ingredients will be citric acid and baking soda.  So, in a deep mixing bowl, add 256 grams citric acid and 560 grams baking soda.  Use your hands to mix the ingredients together.  Make sure you break up any clumps you find in the mixture.
Holly Berry Bath Bombs Recipe: Prepare the Wet Ingredients for the Red PortionHolly Berry Bath Bombs Recipe: Prepare the Wet Ingredients for the Red Portion

Now, we will prepare the wet ingredients for the red portion of the Holly Berry Bath Bombs Recipe.  So, to your dry ingredients, add 9 grams of your safflower oil, 8 grams of Natures Garden’s Holly Berry Fragrance Oil, and 6 grams of Natures Garden’s Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant.  Then, use your hands to mix the ingredients together.  Make sure the red colorant is fully and evenly dispersed.  Then, set the red portion aside for the moment and we will come back to it in just a little bit.

Holly Berry Bath Bombs Recipe: Putting the Bath Fizzies in the Molds

This bath fizzy recipe uses a traditional sphere bath bomb mold.  However, prior to putting the bath fizzies in the molds, we have a few more steps to complete.  You will need to get your molds out and put them in front of you.  We used a medium sized bath bomb mold and made six bath bombs using this recipe.  You can see a picture of the mold we used below.  They were simply the round plastic ornament type molds.

Holly Berry Bath Bombs Recipe: Adding the Holly Berries to the MoldsHolly Berry Bath Bombs Recipe: Adding the Holly Berries to the Molds

Next, we will be adding the holly berries to the molds.  The holly berries were created using holly sprinkles mix from Wilton’s.  These sprinkles contain red beads and green leaves that resemble holly berries.  For our bath bombs, we used three red beads and three green leaves in one half each bath bomb mold. So, go ahead and place three red beads in the center of one half of each of your bath bomb molds.  Then, place three of the leaves around the red decorating beads.  The goal is to make them look like holly berries.

Holly Berry Bath Bombs Recipe: Adding the White Bath Fizzy Mixture to the MoldsHolly Berry Bath Bombs Recipe: Adding the White Bath Fizzy Mixture to the Molds

Now, we will be adding the white bath fizzy mixture to one half of each mold.  The white portion of the bath fizzies will be added to the same side that you added the holly berry sprinkles.  So, with clean gloves, begin spraying the mixture lightly with witch hazel.  You want to have a crumbly dough like consistency.  Once your bath bomb mixture is at the proper consistency, add the white bath bomb mixture to holly berry half of each bath bomb mold.  Make sure you pack the fizzy mixture tightly in the mold so that they form properly.

Holly Berry Bath Bombs Recipe: Adding the Red Bath Fizzy Mixture to the MoldHolly Berry Bath Bombs Recipe: Adding the Red Bath Fizzy Mixture to the Molds

Now we will be adding the red bath fizzy mixture to the molds. So, begin by spritzing the red bath fizzy mixture with witch hazel.  Continue to spray and mix until you are sure that all of the mixture is at a crumbly dough consistency.  Once the bath bomb mixture is at the proper consistency, add it to the second half of each mold.  Pack the molds tightly and be careful not to overfill your molds.

Holly Berry Bath Bombs Recipe: Putting the Two Halves TogetherHolly Berry Bath Bombs Recipe: Putting the Two Halves Together

Finally, we will be attaching the two halves.  First, we need to lightly spray each half of the bath fizzy with witch hazel.  So, lightly spray one white half and one red half with witch hazel.  Then, press the two halves together.  You need to do this with the remaining molds until you have completed all six of your bath bombs.  Lastly, allow them to completely setup before you remove the handmade bath fizzies from the molds.  Your bath bombs should come right out of your molds very easily.  Simply use the hooks to pull the molds apart.  Then, place your bath fizzies in a place where they will not be disturbed or roll around.

I should also say, this is totally optional and dependent on the humidity as well.  When I created this recipe, I will be honest, it was raining cats and dogs, and did so all day and all night.  Obviously, this is not the best time to create a bath fizzy with all of the extra moisture in the air.  However, when I found the Wilton holly berry sprinkle, I was instantly inspired.  I HAD to make them for everyone to see.  Of course, this meant I would need to create them and immediately take pictures to share with all of you.  So, my bath bombs setup.  I removed them from the molds.  I quickly took pictures right away!  As you can see the white half is perfectly smooth.  They looked great.  I was totally happy with them.  Then, I set them aside.  I was having a bit of a problem getting the bath fizzies to stay in one place. The problem was, they kept wanting to roll off the table.  So, I set them back in half of the bath bomb mold.  The little hook on the mold prevented them from rolling away.  Now, for whatever reason, I only used half of a mold for each bath fizzy. I placed each bath bomb with the red side in the mold.  You can see how they looked when I went to bed that night in the picture to the left.

 

Holly Berry Bath Bombs Recipe: Happy Accidents Day Two

Holly Berry Bath Bombs Recipe: Happy Accidents Day TwoHowever, the most wonderful thing happened overnight!  This left the white half exposed to the air.  After an exhausting and very long day, I accidentally forgot about them and left them sitting out on my table all night.  As we talked about at the beginning of this article, bath bombs a best prepared in non-humid climates.  Well, of course, the bath fizzies attracted some moisture from the air.  Of course, the bath bombs were slightly activated.  However, since the red portions were still in the molds, only the white halves were affected.  Guess what this created, it made the white half look like snow!!!  They looked amazing and festive and absolutely perfect!  You can see how they looked in the morning in the picture to the left.  I would never have thought to use the moisture to my advantage, but it worked out wonderfully for this time of year.  I actually recreated these for my own personal use, using this technique intentionally and for those wondering, yes, the bath bombs still fizz perfectly.

 

Tell Us About Your Happy Accidents

We all have those moments where we think, man I just messed that soap, candle, bath bomb, etc. up big time.  Then, there is that moment where you realize that big mistake turned into the most wonderful thing that you never planned for.  I couldn’t be happier with how these bath bombs turned out.  Personally, I am absolutely obsessed.  I make baskets each holiday for family and friends.  I fill them with bath and body products and totally intend to create these and other bath fizzies using this technique.

We would love to hear all about your happy accidents.  We would even love to hear what inspired your projects and see pictures as well!  Tell us all about them on our Facebook or Twitter pages.  You can even post pictures on our Instagram @ngscents.  If you are looking for a little inspiration, be sure to check out all of our Free Recipes and Classes available right on our website.

Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Total Ingredient Amounts Needed

132 grams Citric Acid
263 grams Baking Soda –  Sodium Bicarbonate
68 grams Corn Starch
30 grams Coconut Oil 76
10 grams Natures Garden’s Ginger Lime Fragrance Oil
5 grams French Green Clay Powder
5 grams FUN Soap Colorant Yellow Oxide

Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Preparations Prior to Starting

First, you will need the two empty white 8 ounce PET bullet bottles. In the first bottle, add your rubbing alcohol. In your second bottle, put the witch hazel. Then, place one of your 24/410 white fine mist sprayers on each bottle.  You can set these aside for the moment we will come back to them in a bit. Next, we recommend wearing an apron, hair net and gloves when you prepare the Golden Clover Bath Fizzies. If you’re anything like me, you will get messy!  Go ahead and put those on before you start mixing.  In addition, begin to melt the coconut oil 76.  You can melt the coconut oil by placing your sealed bottle or jug in a bowl of warm tap water.  Since coconut oil 76 has a low melt point of 76 degrees, it will not take too long for it to melt.  I only needed about 5 minutes for mine to melt.

Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Weighing Out the Dry Ingredients

Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Weighing Out the Dry IngredientsNow you will need your scale.  Using your scale, set to weigh in grams, add the baking soda.  You will need 263 grams.  Then, add 5 grams of your French green clay powder. Lastly, you want to add 68 grams of your corn starch.  Use your hands to mix the ingredients together thoroughly. Also, be sure to break up any clumps you may find in the bowl as you are mixing.

Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Adding the Wet Ingredients

Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Adding the Wet IngredientsNext we will weigh out and add all of the wet ingredients. This includes your fragrance oil, coconut oil 76, and yellow oxide color.  First, weigh out 30 grams of the coconut oil 76 you began melting earlier.  Add it to your bowl of dry ingredients.  Again, use your hands to combine the ingredients evenly and fully.  Now, add 10 grams of Natures Garden’s Ginger Lime Fragrance Oil. Mix well.  Finally, add the 5 grams of FUN Soap Colorant Yellow Oxide. Use your hands to incorporate your color.  Make sure you mix everything fully and evenly.

Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Adding the Citric Acid

Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Adding the Citric AcidThe last ingredient we will be adding is the citric acid. It is the combination of baking soda and citric acid added to water that creates the fizzing action of the finished bath bomb.  To the bowl containing the other ingredients, add the citric acid.  You will need to add 132 grams.  Once you have it in the bowl, you will once again need to use your hands to incorporate everything together.

Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Preparing the Mixture for the Molds

Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Preparing the Mixture for the MoldsFor this step you will want to get the silicone shamrock mold out and the bottle of witch hazel you prepared earlier.  Now, begin lightly spritzing the Golden Clover Bath Fizzy mixture with the witch hazel. As you are spraying mix the ingredients with your hands. Continue spray and mixing until you have wet sand like consistency or a crumbly dough.  Be careful not to over spray the mixture.  If you spray them with too much much witch hazel, you will activate the citric acid.  This will leave you bath bomb without fizz.

Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Putting the Bath Fizzies in the Mold

Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Putting the Bath Fizzies in the MoldWhen you are ready, begin adding the mixture to the mold.  You want to make sure you pack the molds tightly. This recipe will make four gold bath bombs shaped like shamrocks. Once you have filled four cavities of the silicone mold, allow the bath bombs to set up overnight.  Since silicone molds are super flexible, removal is a snap.  Simply press gently on the bottom of the mold.  They will come right out for you.  You can turn the mold upside down and press as well.  However, if you do it this way make sure you have a piece of cardboard or something similar under the mold.  If the mold drops, it will likely crack.

Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Making them Shine

Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Making them ShineFor this step you will need the bottle of rubbing alcohol you prepared earlier in the recipe. You will also need a mixing bowl. I used a medium sized bowl.  It will catch the mica as you sprinkle your fizzy.  Begin by spraying the first bath fizzy lightly with rubbing alcohol. Then, hold it over the medium sized bowl.  Next, sprinkle Natures Garden’s 24k gold mica pigment over the bath bomb. Continue sprinkling the 24k gold mica pigment until the entire shamrock is covered with mica. Finally, gently shake off any extra mica into the bowl. Repeat this process until each clover fizzy is covered in gold.

Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Using your Handmade Bath Fizzy

Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Using your Bath FizzyFinally, when using the gold bath fizzies, simply place one in your bathtub. Then, let it fizz and sparkle. However, we should mention, your tub will likely be slippery when you are getting out. Be extra careful.  It might also require a little extra cleaning to your bathtub, but it is well worth it!  You will shimmer and glow all day long!  Plus, your skin we thank you for the coconut oil treat!

Also, we will go ahead and prepare the fillable ornaments molds.  First of all, you will need half of each ornament.  To each one, we added 8 grams of Hawaiian black salt coarse ground, but you can use less if you’d like.  Set these aside for now while we prepare the bath fizzy mixture.  We will come back to them.

Next, weigh out your dry ingredients.  In your mixing bowl, add 263 grams of baking soda, 68 grams of cornstarch, 30 Hawaiian black salt fine ground, 5 grams bentonite clay, and 1 gram activated charcoal.  Use your hands to mix the ingredients, breaking up any clumps as you mix.

Now, weigh out your oils and black oxide soap colorant.  You will need a second small mixing bowl.  Use your scale to weigh out 30 grams of coconut oil 76, 8 grams of black oxide FUN Soap Colorant, and 1 gram of Elf Sweat Fragrance Oil.

Then, use a spatula to add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.  Using your hands, mix them together completely.  Again, breaking up any clumps.

Finally, add the citric acid.  Weigh out 132 grams of citric acid, place this in the bowl with the other ingredients.  Once again, use your hands to mix the ingredients.  Also, make sure you are breaking up any clumps.

 

Lumps of Coal Bath Bomb Recipe Filling Your Molds

Lumps of Coal Bath Bomb Recipe
This is when you will need the bottle of witch hazel you prepared earlier.  Spray a small amount of witch hazel into the bowl.  Also, using your hands mix as you spray.  You want to continue spraying a bit, then mixing until you get the perfect consistency.  You want it to feel like wet sand.  You will be able to squeeze it and it will pack, yet it will still crumble a bit.

 

Lumps of Coal Bath Bomb Recipe

 

Next, begin filling your molds.  Place the mixture into one half of each mold.  In addition, you want to make sure you press down firmly.  In fact, if the mixture is too loose, it will crumble when you remove it from the molds.

 

Once you have the mixture packed into the molds, you will attach them.  However, prior to putting the ornaments together spray each side with witch hazel.  Then, put them together.

Finally, let the bath fizzies set up.  Then, remove them from the molds.  Also, make sure you remove them carefully and slowly.

Your Lumps of Coal Bath Bombs are now ready for use.  So, place an activated charcoal bath fizzy in your tub and let the fizzing begin!  Have you made an activated charcoal bath fizzy too?  Show us what you’ve made by posting them to our Facebook page or tagging us on Instagram @ngscents!
