Calendula,  also known as Calendula officinalis, is a very well known therapeutic herb. Since it is native to Northern Mediterranean countries, it is used in many of their food dishes.  Calendula is an annual flower, which refers to the tendency it has to bloom accordingly with the calendar. Calendula is a modern Latin diminutive of the word calendae, which means “little clock” or “little calendar.”  It usually blooms along with the full moon or at least once a month. The more commonly known name, pot marigold or the nickname “Mary’s Gold”, refers to the Virgin Mary. These flowers are used in some Catholic ceremonies to honor her.

This herb has a great number of uses in many different industries, including cosmetics. Egyptians considered the herb to have rejuvenating powers. Also, in the Hindu world, the people adorned the statues of their gods in their temples with the flower.

Before you get started on your recipe, it’s always important to take a few steps to help your creating go along smoothly. Clean and sanitize your work area. Also, give your equipment and packing materials a cleaning and sanitizing. We suggest wearing an apron, gloves and other protective clothing when preparing your recipe. One last step, fill your bullet bottle with witch hazel and place a sprayer on top. We will be using this when we start to form the bath bombs.

Calendula Bath Bomb: Prepping the Dry IngredientsCalendula Bath Bomb: Prepping the Dry Ingredients

Our first step will be mixing the dry ingredients. So in your first bowl, after placing it on the scale and taring out the weight, you will weigh the dry ingredients. To the bowl add 300 grams of Citric Acid, 600 grams of Baking Soda and 10 grams of Bentonite Clay Powder.

Now, with gloved hands you will mix the dry ingredients together, breaking up any clumps that you come across. This bowl will be set aside as we move on to our wet ingredients.

 

 

 

Calendula Bath Bomb: Prepping the Wet Ingredients

Our second step will be the wet ingredients. To a second bowl, after placing it on the scale and taring out the weight, you will weigh in the wet ingredients.  So to the bowl add in 18 grams of Safflower Oil and 18 grams of Floral Bouquet fragrance oil.

Next, you will be adding the wet ingredients to the dry. Once the oils are all added into the powders, used your gloved hands to thoroughly mix the bath bomb ingredients together. Continue mixing until you are confident that you have everything completely and evenly mixed.

Calendula Bath Bomb: Dividing the Mixture

You will now need two mixing bowls. You will need to divide you bath bomb mixture into two equal parts. Place each half in an empty bowl.

Now that our bath bomb mixture is evenly seperated, place the first bowl on the scale and tare out the weight. Weigh in 5 grams of calendula powder.  Remove this bowl, set it aside and place the second bowl on the scale. Tare out the weigh and add in 5 grams of the whole calendula flowers. You can remove this from the scale also.

 

 

Calendula Bath Bomb: Using the Witch HazelCalendula Bath Bomb: Using the Witch Hazel

Now that we have everything add in we will be using the witch hazel to help create and form the bath bomb mixture into a dough. Starting with your first bowl, begin spraying the mixture with the witch hazel and using your hands, mix the ingredients together, misting as you go. You should have a crumbly, dough like texture when you are done. Next, you will do the same to the second bowl, misting with the witch hazel and combining the ingredients until you have reached the crumbly dough stage. You are now ready to move on to creating the bath bombs.

Calendula Bath Bomb: Before Making the Bath Bombs

Before you start adding the dough to the bath bomb mold, take a small amount of whole calendula flowers and place them in the bottom of each one half of the molds you will be using. This will add a pretty touch of interest to your finished bath bomb.

Calendula Bath Bomb: Filling the First Half of the  Bath Bomb Molds

Now you can move on to creating the bath bomb. These bath bombs will be layered. So, add a small amount of the mixture that contains the calendula powder. Then, add a layer that contains the whole calendula flowers. You will repeat this process filling one half of each mold.

Calendula Bath Bomb: Filling the Second Half of the Mold

For the second half, it will not have the extra calendula flowers added in. It will simply be the dough mixture. So continuing the layering process and fill the second half until it is completely full, just as you did with the first half of the mold.

Calendula Bath Bomb: Fitting the Two Halves Together

The last step will be fitting the two halves of the mold together, to form the bomb. Take both halves of the bath bomb. Next, mist each half lightly with witch hazel. This will help the bath bomb adhere together. Now, press the two halves together until the mold is closed. Continue filling and layering the remaining bath bomb molds and pressing them together. This recipe will give you 6 bath bombs.

Calendula Bath Bomb: Letting the Bath Bombs Set UpCalendula Bath Bomb: Letting the Bath Bombs Set Up

When you have completed all the bath bombs, you will allow them to set up and harden. This can take anywhere form 24 to 48 hours. It will all depend end on the humidity of your environment. We do suggest that creating your bath bombs is best done in a cool, dry area. Also, keep them in the same cool, dry area while they set up. Creating your recipe in an area that is humid will make the bath bombs difficult to form and set up.

Once your bombs have hardened, you may leave them in the mold, which makes packaging for selling or giving away, easy and fast. However, you may remove them from the mold and package them however you choose.  When your ready to use your Calendula Bath Bomb, simply place it in a nice, warm bath and relax!
