Peeps Bunny Bath Bombs Recipe Preparation Before Creation

Before starting this recipe you will want to cover all your bases. So, make sure that you have both witch hazel and rubbing alcohol readily available with each in its own spray bottle. Also, be sure that you have all your ingredients ready and your work space is free of other objects or grime. Finally, be cautious of you surrounding climate and weather. This recipe, like other bath bombs, will not work as well in humid places.

Peeps Bunny Bath Bombs Recipe Setting up for the Different Colors

First of all, you will need to have four small mixing bowls ready to use. Since you will have four different colors, you will need to keep these colors separated from one another during their creation. Throughout this process, each bowl will basically have the same ingredients added. However, the single difference will be that each bowl will receive a different color when the time comes. So, now that we are clear in the process, let’s begin!

Peeps Bunny Bath Bombs Recipe PowdersPeeps Bunny Bath Bombs Recipe Mixing the Powders

Second, we are going to mix the baking soda and the citric acid together in each bowl. So, take your scale, one of your four small mixing bowls, and tare the scale to remove the weight of the bowl. Now, weigh 130 grams of baking soda and 65 grams of citric acid the single small mixing bowl. Repeat this with the remaining three bowls. Then, mix each individual bowl with your hands to thoroughly blend each mixture. Be sure that you remove any clumps in your bowls.

Peeps Bunny Bath Bombs Recipe Adding the Oils to Your Mixtures

Next, we are going to add the Grapeseed Oil and Fragrance Oil to the bowls. Take one of your four small mixing bowls and tare it on the scale. Next, add 7 grams of the Grapeseed Oil and 4 grams of the Honey Almond Fragrance Oil. You will repeat this step with your remaining three bowls. Then mix each of the four bowls thoroughly with your hands. While it can be tiring to mix four separate bowls so many times, know that it is important to do well to create a bath bomb that works well and holds its form.

Peeps Bunny Bath Bombs RecipePeeps Bunny Bath Bombs Recipe Adding Four the Colorants

Now, we are going to create a different color in each of the four small mixing bowls. Take one of the bowls and add ten drops of the Neon Pink FUN Soap Colorant. Grab your second bowl and put in ten drops of the Neon Yellow FUN Soap Colorant. In your next bowl you will need to put in ten drops of the Neon Blue FUN Soap Colorant. Your final bowl will have ten drops of the Deep Purple FUN Soap Colorant. Finally, you will need to mix each one with your hands until the mixture is an even color with no clumps of bright streaks.

Peeps Bunny Bath Bombs Recipe Witch HazelPeeps Bunny Bath Bombs Recipe Spraying Witch Hazel and Filling the Molds

Once your bowls are each evenly mixed, you are ready to fill your Peeps Bunny Molds! Now, take one of your colored mixtures to spray with the witch hazel, you should only need one or two sprays to get the mixture to stick together. Then, immediately press the mixture into the cavities of the bunny mold. After this is done, you will repeat this step with the remaining three colored mixtures. This should provide you with eight peeps bunny bath bombs with two in each color that you created. Wait until they have completely hardened and before proceeding to the next step.

Wait for them to dry and shake off the excess sugar. Your peep bunny bath bombs are now ready to use! However, if you wish to store them keep them sealed in a dry place to prevent them from activating too early.

Scale
Mixing Bowls
Mixing Spoons

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!

2 cups of Baking Soda – Sodium Bicarbonate

1 cup of Cream of Tartar

20 grams of Sunflower Oil

14 grams of Love Juice Fragrance Oil

5 grams of Neon Pink Fun Soap Colorant

2 Lips Mold Market Molds

Bath Bomb Without Citric Acid Cleaning and Preparing 

Before you start creating this bath bomb recipe make sure that you clean up your work space and make sure all the equipment you need is sanitized. We suggest that you wear gloves, protective clothing, and a hair net during the preparation of these bath bombs.

Bath Bomb Without Citric Acid Baking Soda and Cream of Tartar

Bath Bomb Without Citric Acid Baking Soda and Cream of TartarFirst, you will need to grab your bowl and a measuring cup. Measure two cups of the baking soda into the bowl. Next, measure one cup of Cream of Tartar into the bowl as well. Mix these together these two ingredients well. Although you will be mixing more throughout the recipe, it can only help to continue to mix as you add ingredients to more evenly disperse the added components.  Additionally, you will want to make sure you break up any clumps you find in the powders.

Bath Bomb Without Citric Acid Adding The Oils

Bath Bomb Without Citric Acid Adding The OilsInitially, you will be adding the fragrance to the bath bomb mixture. So, place your bowl on the scale and add 14 grams of the Love Juice Fragrance Oil. Mix the scent into the powder to disperse the fragrance oil before the next step. Next, you will be including the sunflower oil. Again, place the bowl on the scale and weigh out 20 grams of the Sunflower Oil into the bowl. Now, mix in the oils very well.

Bath Bomb Without Citric Acid Coloring Your Bath Bomb

Bath Bomb Without Citric Acid Coloring Your Bath BombNext, you will be adding the Neon Pink Fun Soap Colorant to the bath bombs. Take the bowl of mixed ingredients and your scale. Weigh out 5 grams of the Neon Pink Colorant into the bowl. We recommend that you don’t add all of the colorant in one area in the bowl. Mix the colorant into the recipe thoroughly and avoid leaving any flecks of pink unmixed.

Bath Bomb Without Citric Acid Adding The Witch Hazel

Initially, you will need to spray the mixture with witch hazel. However, you need to be sure that you do not add too much witch hazel at one time. Otherwise, the mixture will fizz. If the mixture fizzes too much, then the recipe will not stick together and the bath bomb will be ruined. So, the first step is to spray the witch hazel one or two times into the bowl. Second, you will mix this ingredient into the recipe thoroughly. You will repeat these two steps of adding witch hazel and mixing. You will continue repeating until the recipe can stick together and can hold its form.  You want to have a crumbly dough like consistency.

Bath Bomb Without Citric Acid Filling The Molds

Bath Bomb Without Citric Acid Filling The MoldsFinally, pack the finished bath bomb mixture into the lips mold market molds. You will need to push the mix into the mold hard so that no empty air pockets remain. If the recipe is not put into the mold well enough the shape may not be maintained by the bath bombs. I would recommend that you put a small portion of the bath bomb into one of the molds and push hard. Then, add some more and push on this as well. This method will make it easier for you to prevent the empty space that would ruin the shape of the lips.

Bath Bomb Without Citric Acid Removing The Bath Bombs From The Molds

Eventually, you will be able to remove your bath bombs from the molds. Make sure that you take great care when removing these bath bomb lips! Not only will it be very easy for you to remove the bath bombs, but the bath bombs need to remain in the molds overnight. If you remove the bath bomb lips too early they may fall apart, as they are extremely soft at first. Although setting overnight will make these bath bombs harder, you should still try to take care when you remove or handle these lip shaped bath bombs.

Additionally, the bath bombs will be extremely easy to remove from the molds. In fact, can easily slip right out when the mold is flipped upside down. When I removed my own batch of bath bombs, the lips slid out as soon as the mold was upside down. So, I would recommend using either another set of hands or slide some cardboard under the mold before you flip the mold.

Bath Bomb Without Citric Acid Using Cream of Tartar

Personally, I found that the Cream of Tartar bath bomb recipe to be not as great as the recipes we have done with citric acid. When we tested the, we noticed that this recipe is not as fizzy as the bath bombs that we’re used to using. When we were washing our equipment we noticed that this recipe for bath bombs was a lot less fizzy than recipes with citric acid. However, this recipe was extremely easy to remove from the mold in comparison to citric acid bath bombs. If you are looking to create bath bombs with a soap mold, then this recipe may work better for you.

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!
