Lavender Mint Bath Bomb RecipeLavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe

It’s spring time! Well, kind of spring time. We had a couple of nice, warm days here in Ohio. What makes you think of spring? Some of our thoughts turn to spring planting. Others think of spring clothes or just looking forward to the bright colors of Mother Nature. I look forward to warmer weather, sunny days and the fresh smells from flowers and newly cut grass. However, at Nature’s Garden, our creative team starts to think of spring recipes and our Lavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe is a perfect example. With its soft pastel colors and fresh, crisp fragrance, this bath bomb will make you think and smell spring immediately!

 

Lavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: The Ingredients

First off, before we get started, let’s talk about some of the ingredients we are using in this recipe. Most of your bath bombs use only two basic “bath bomb” ingredients. Baking Soda, Citric Acid. However, we added an extra ingredient into this recipe, Sodium Cocoyl Isethinate, or SCI. SCI is a gentle sufecant derived from coconut and it is used in a variety of cosmetic recipes. Sodium Cocoyl Isethioniate (SCI) gives your soaps, shampoo, bath bombs and bubble bars their bubble action. Most of all, bath bombs need some skin-nourishing oil added in! We chose Jojoba Oil. This oil has remarkable absorption and moisturizing qualities. This bath bomb is going to leave your skin feeling soft and silky after a nice, long soak in the tub!

Our fragrance oil inspiration is our Lavender Mint WOW.  Anybody in the bath and body business will know that lavender is a popular herb known for the soothing and calming effects it can have. Lavender, which is a very down to earth, natural fragrance, however, it can be a bit overwhelming by itself. With a touch of mint added in you have a wonderfully balanced fragrance that is bright yet subtle, crisp yet soft. This bath bomb is a perfect showcase for this fragrance oil. Lavender Mint WOW is an wonderful verdant scent of earthy lavender flowers and fresh peppermint and spearmint leaves! With soft colors of violet, green and white, this pretty, little bath bomb will be a perfect addition to your spring or summer bath and body line!

Lavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Prepare Your Work Space and Equipment

Before you begin creating you want to make sure your work area and all the equipment you are using is clean. This will prevent any unwanted particles or bacteria from getting into your bath bombs. Also, make sure you have you have enough room to work in. We highly recommend wearing an apron to protect your clothing and gloves, glasses, and a mask. In addition, you will want to have your Witch Hazel bottles in a spray bottle. Witch Hazel is used to help bind ingredients with little to no action so it’s important to have that handy and ready to go. Water will not be helpful in this recipe and as a side note, this recipe is best prepared in a non-humid climate. Like I stated above, bath bombs are activated by water and simple moisture in the air can slightly activate these guys.

 

Lavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Preparing the Dry IngredientsLavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Preparing the Dry Ingredients

Are you ready to get started?  So, in the first bowl is going to be your dry ingredients. Take your scale, making sure it is set to grams, and weigh out 166 grams Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, 512 grams Citric Acid, and 1,120 grams of Baking Soda. Then using your gloved hands, mix the ingredients together, breaking up any clumps as you go. Once these are mixed well, set this bowl aside.

 

Lavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Preparing the Wet IngredientsLavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Preparing the Wet Ingredients

Next, you can combine the wet ingredients together. So, in a separate bowl, with your scale still set to grams, weigh out 18 grams of Jojoba oil and the 16 grams of Lavender Mint Wow Fragrance Oil. Mix this together well using your mixing spoon or even a whisk.

Next, we can combine our wet and dry ingredients together. Slowly add the oils to your dry. For the record, if you happen to get a mild reaction when you add the wet to the dry, don’t panic! It will calm down once you get more dry mixed in. Finally, use your gloved hands to mix the ingredients together. You want to be sure the oils are evenly dispersed throughout the mixture. This bowl can be set aside until later.

 

 

 

Lavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Separating the DoughLavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Separating the Dough

Now that your base mixture is combined, you can separate the dough so it can be colored. You are going to separate the bath bomb dough into 3 equal portions and there is no distinct weight for each portion so go ahead and eyeball it. Two bowls will be colored with our FUN Soap Colorants and one bowl will remain un-colored.

 

 

Lavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Mixing the Violet ColorLavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Mixing the Violet Color

Now we can add our colorant! Tare out your scale and to the first bowl, add in 9 grams of Ultramarine Violet FUN Soap Colorant. Then using your gloved hands you will mix the color fully and evenly into your dough until you have achieved a nice, pale violet color. You can set this portion aside for the moment.

Next, let’s mix the green! Tare out your scale and in your second bowl add 12 grams of Kelly Green FUN Soap colorant. Again, using gloved hands, mix the green colorant in thoroughly and evenly until you have a nice, pale shade of green. Now you can set this bowl aside.

 

 

 

Lavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Molding the Bath Bombs

There are many types and shapes of bath bomb molds out there that can be used.  Virtually anything can be used as a bath bomb mold! Silicone molds, soap molds, shallow jars or deep lids.  Shop around your local craft store or even look around your kitchen and let your imagination take over! You can make all shapes and sizes of bath treats, however, please keep in mind that you need the mold to have the ability to release easily. With this recipe, we kept it easy and chose a simple, round plastic fillable Christmas ornament that you can find in any craft store.

Next you can start putting these bath bombs together! You may start with any color you wish, however we started with the green dough. Plus you will be using the Witch Hazel now.  Please note, that it is important to not spray the dough with too much of the Witch Hazel. Over spraying can cause the bath bomb ingredients to activate and as a result your bath bomb will not stay together. Now go ahead and spritz your dough with the witch hazel. Using your hands,give it a nice mix. You are looking for the consistency of damp sand. Take one half of the mold. Next, you will take a small amount of dough and press it firmly into the ornament half.

Next, we can move onto the second color. Again, chose any color you wish. We went with white. Give the mix a spritz of Witch Hazel and mix it well making sure it is the right consistency. Next, take a small amount and press it firmly on top of the first layer.

Next, you are going to spritz your third layer of dough with Witch Hazel so give it a quick mix, making sure it looks like damp sand.  Take a small amount. Add it to the second layer. Fill to the top as full as you can get it without it overflowing. Make sure to press the dough firmly down.

Lavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Preparing the Second Half of the Mold

Now we are going to work on the second half of the mold. So, repeat the process of layering as we did in the first half.  With your first color, take a small amount and press it firmly into other half of the mold.

Lavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Adding the Second Layer of Color

Move on to the second layer by taking a small bit of dough and pressing it firmly onto the first layer.

 

Lavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Adding the Third Layer of ColorLavender Mint Bath Bomb Recipe: Adding the Third Layer of Color

Finally, you are going to finish off the second half of the mold with your third layer of color. So, pull off a small amount of dough and push it firmly on top of the previous layer. Next you will be putting the two halves together. So first, give each half of the mold a light spray of Witch Hazel then press the two halves together tightly. Lastly, you will want to place the bath bombs in an area where they will not be disturbed or roll around and let them rest for at least 24 hours. In addition, make sure that the bombs are in a humid-free zone.  Now you can continue building the remaining molds with the same layering process. This recipe should allow for six medium sized bath bombs.

 

See how easy making bath bombs can be? The ingredients are simple and they can be found in your local grocery store! Plus, the kids can even help with making them since there are no hazardous materials used! With a little creativity and inspiration, the possibilities are endless!  We hope you enjoyed this newest edition to our bath bomb recipe collection. We are sure you will love the scented balance of the soft, earthy lavender and the bright, crisp scent of mint combined. These bath bombs will leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed. Plus, the scent of Lavender Mint WOW will leave your bathroom smelling like a spa!

Lavender Mint Bath Bomb: Dos and Don’ts of Bath Bombs

In conclusion, I have included  a tiny list of reminders on how to treat your bath bombs after they are made!

Do remember to keep them out of the humidity! The littlest bit of moisture in the air can cause your bath bombs to go off into a fizzy display! Not good from a selling standpoint! Consider airtight containers or glass jars with lids as a display option. Furthermore, bath bombs can shrink wrapped or even placed in cellophane bags and tied tightly with a pretty ribbon or twist tie.  You will want to wrap them right away.

Do use your bath bombs withing a few months of making or receiving them. The fresher the bath bomb the better the bubble and fizz!

Do let your bombs completely set up. Do not attempt to take them out of their molds yet! Your bombs should come out of the mold easily. Simply use the tabs at the top of the mold to pull the two sides apart being careful in removing them.

Don’t use craft glitter in any of your bath bomb creations. Always use a cosmetic grade glitter.

Foaming Rose Petal Bath Bombs Recipe Sanitize the Work Space and the Equipment Needed

Before beginning working on your craft, you may want to do a little bit of preparation to ensure that the process goes smoothly and stays stress-free. So, clean your work space enough to provide an ample amount of surface area to create your foaming bath bombs. Also, you will want to clean everything that you will be using, such as bowls and the silicone heart soap mold. This will prevent unwanted particles or bacteria from getting into your bath products.

Additionally, you should make sure that your witch hazel is already in the bullet bottle and ready to use. This will ensure that you won’t need to pause the process to locate some witch hazel and a spray bottle. Further, you should try to chose a less humid day or area to create your products as too much humidity can actually cause the bath bomb to activate to soon. This will make it difficult to stick together and make prevent its correct use later on. Now, you should be prepared enough to enjoy creating some gorgeous bath bombs!

Foaming Rose Petal Bath Bombs Recipe Mixing the Powder Ingredients Foaming Rose Petal Bath Bombs Recipe Mixing the Powder Ingredients

First, you are going to prepare your powder ingredients in one bowl. So, tare the weight of one of your medium mixing bowls on the gram scale. Weigh out 264 grams of the Citric Acid, 528 grams of the Baking Soda, and 84 grams of the Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate into this same mixing bowl. Now, use your gloved hands to mix these powdered ingredients well enough to incorporate everything. Also, be sure to break up any clumps that you find while mixing. It is very important to make this mixture as smooth and well mixed as possible.

Next, you will be dividing your powder mixture into two even portions. So, retrieve another of your medium mixing bowls and transfer about half of your previously weighed powder ingredients. This should leave you with about 438 grams of your mixture in each of the two bowls. While you may simply be able to eye the amount, you should make sure to weigh this amount with your scale to be certain that it is separated evenly. Now, you should have the same amount of powder ingredients in each of your bowls. So, you will be adding the rosehips herb to one of your bowls. So, add 5 grams of the rosehips powder to only one of your portions in the mixing bowls. Set these two bowls of your mixtures aside for now.

Then, you are going to prepare the liquid ingredients for this bubbling bath bomb recipe. So, grab two small mixing bowls and tare the weight of one bowl on your scale. The first bowl will have 4 grams of the Moonlight Tuberose Fragrance Oil, 9 grams of the Grapeseed Oil, and 5 drops of the Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant. After everything has been added to one bowl, mix these ingredients together well with a spoon. Later, this colorful mixture will be added to the bowl with the rose hips powder.

Next, you will be combining the liquid ingredients that will be added to the second bowl of powdered ingredients. So, you will weigh 4 grams of the Moonlight Tuberose Fragrance Oil and 9 grams of the Grapeseed Oil into the second small bowl. Later, this mixture will be added to the plain, white powder mixture.

Now, you are going to mix and prepare that pink layer for the mold. So, grab the bowl of dry ingredients that includes the rose hips powder. Add the red colored liquid ingredients to this bowl of dry ingredients. Mix well to incorporate all the scent and color into the dry ingredients. Be sure that use mix well enough to break up dye clumps and evenly disperse the fragrance oil.

Next, you will finish this portion of your bath bomb so you can add it to the mold. So, grab your spray bottle of witch hazel. Now, very lightly spray the pink bath bomb portion with the witch hazel and keep on mixing with your gloved hands as you spray. Continue to spray and mix until you have a crumbling dough consistency, but be careful not to over use the spray or it could activate your bath bomb prematurely. We have noticed that this recipe will use less witch hazel than our typical bath bomb recipe. So, be wary of the amount of witch hazel used. You can always add more, but once you have added too much the bath bomb is ruined before you have a chance to finish creating them. After you reach the crumbling dough consistency, quickly move on to the next step of filling the mold.

After you achieve the right amount of witch hazel, you are ready to move on to filling your silicone molds. So, get your six-cavity Silicone Heart Soap Mold and lay it on your work space. Now, pack each of the six cavities about half full with your pink portion of the bath bomb. You will be leaving the other have for the white layer of your foaming bath bomb. Also, make sure that you press down on the mixture as you fill the mold to ensure that it is packed tightly and will hold its shape after it is removed from the soap mold.

Then, you will be preparing the uncolored layer for the bath bomb. So, retrieve your unused bowl of liquid ingredients and the other bowl of powdered ingredients. Now, take the clear liquid ingredients and mix it into your plain white, dry ingredients. Remember to mix well enough to disperse the fragrance oil throughout the entire mixture.

After mixing well, you will spray this portion of the bath bomb with witch hazel until it becomes a crumbly dough consistency. As you know, you will not want to add too much of the witch hazel to your mixture. Once you get the right amount you will be ready to add the white mixture to the mold. Now, spray the previous layer lightly with hazel and tightly pack the white layer on top of the pink layer in each of your six cavities. You will want to pack this layer in well enough to stick to the pink layer and hold its shape after it is removed from the mold. Also, if you don’t pack the mold tight enough you could end up with empty space in the bath bombs.

Immediately, you are going to want to top your bath bombs to make sure the petals and mica adhere. Spray the top of the white layer one last time to ensure that the rose petals stick to the tops. So, take about 2 grams of the rose petals and sprinkle them on top of each of your bath bombs. Now, press your sprinkled rose petals down into the top of your bath bomb slightly. This will make sure that they don’t fall off before you add them to your bath tub. Finally, add a light dusting of the 24 K Gold Mica Pigment and the Diamond Dust Mica Pigment to the top of the foaming bath bomb and rose petals. This will provide a super pretty shimmer!

Bath Bombs With SLS Recipe Preparation and Sanitation

Before you begin, you will want to choose a good place to work and sanitize everything. First, you should find a place that is not too humid as this recipe performs better in non-humid climates. So, those in humid areas should try to minimize this as much as possible. Also, you will want to make sure that you work space and all your equipment is sanitized to prevent potential contamination of you bath bombs.

Bath Bombs With SLS Recipe Weighing the Dry IngredientsBath Bombs With SLS Recipe Weighing the Dry Ingredients

First, you will be weighing the dry ingredients for both the yellow and orange colored halves. So, retrieve two of your four mixing bowls and your gram scale. In each of these two bowls, you will weigh out 256 grams of the citric acid, 83 grams of the Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, 560 grams of the baking soda, and 3 grams of the papaya leaf powder. Now, thoroughly mix the ingredients, break up any clumps, and set both of these bowls aside for later use as we move on to our wet ingredients.

Bath Bombs With SLS Recipe Weighing the Wet IngredientsBath Bombs With SLS Recipe Weighing the Wet Ingredients

Next, you will be weighing the wet ingredients for both the yellow and orange colored halves. So, take your other two bowls that should be clean and ready to use. Also, place them on your scale and tare your scale with the weight of the bowl. Now, add 8 grams of the Papaya Guava Mango Fragrance Oil and 9 grams of the Meadowfoam Seed Oil to each to your two bowls. Then, you can slowly add one of the bowls of wet ingredients to one of your bowls of dry ingredients. Repeat this with the other two bowls of wet ingredients and dry ingredients.

Bath Bombs With SLS Recipe Coloring Both of the MixturesBath Bombs With SLS Recipe Coloring Both of the Mixtures

Now, you are ready to add pigments to create both the yellow and orange colors for your mixtures. So, take one of your two bowls to color first. This bowl will be colored with Neon Yellow and Eye Poke Orange to create a bright yellow hue for half of your bath bomb. In order to create this, you will add 9 grams neon yellow FUN Soap Colorant and 2 grams Eye Poke Orange FUN Soap Colorant to this bowl. Use your hands to mix the colorant thoroughly.  Next, you will take the other bowl and use Jailhouse Red and Neon Red to create a fun orange color for the other half of your bath bomb. So, you will be adding 10 grams Jailhouse Red FUN Soap Colorant and 3 grams Neon Red FUN Soap Colorant to your second mixture bowl.  Again, with clean gloves, mix the colorant evenly so the color is fully incorporated into your ingredients. 

Bath Bombs With SLS Recipe Filling the Orange Half of the Bath BombBath Bombs With SLS Recipe Filling the Orange Half of the Bath Bomb Mold

Next, it is time for you to add the orange mixture portion of the bath bomb to half of the ornament. First, you will need to spray the mixture with witch hazel. However, you will need to spray slowly as you mix. Since over spraying will activate the ingredients prematurely causing your bath bomb to fall apart, you will want to get this part right. You will know that you have added the right amount when mixture feels like crumbly dough in your hands. After, you can scoop the mixture into the mold half and pack it full.

Bath Bombs With SLS Recipe Filling the Yellow Half of the Bath BombBath Bombs With SLS Recipe Filling the Yellow Half of the Bath Bomb Mold

Now, you can fill the other half of your bath bomb mold. So, take your yellow mixture and spray in the appropriate amount of witch hazel. Just like last time, make sure that you don’t add more than you need as the ingredients will activate in the bowl and your bath bomb mixture will not stick together correctly. After you spray the right amount, you can pack the mixture into the second half of the bath bomb mold.

Bath Bombs With SLS Recipe Attaching the HalvesBath Bombs With SLS Recipe Attaching the Halves

Finally, you will attach the two mold halves and create the finished bath bomb. So, lightly spritz both the yellow half and the orange half with a little bit more witch hazel and attach the ornament halves together. Now, fill the rest of your ornaments until you have used up all of the yellow and orange mixtures to create your six bath bombs. Then, you will need to wait for the bath bombs to set up and harden. Only after this has happened can you remove the mango scented bath bombs from the ornament molds.

Bath Bombs With SLS Recipe Bubble Bath Ready

After all this waiting, your mango bath bombs are finally ready for you to use! Once you get these super cool bath bombs into the tub they will create all kinds of bubbles and fizz, which is all kinds of fun.
