Also, you may want to clean your equipment to ensure that it is ready to use. Additionally, you may want to prepare a spray bottle full of witch hazel, as it will be important for making bath bombs. Second, you will want to clean and sanitize a work area that you can use to create this recipe. 

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

First, you are going to want to get the dry ingredients ready for your bath bomb recipe. So, take you first medium mixing bowl and a scale. Now, weigh out the 300 grams of the Citric Acid, 600 grams of the Baking Soda,182 grams of the Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, and 10 grams of the Bentonite Clay Powder. After adding all of these ingredients, you will need to mix these powders together with your gloved hands. As you mix, make sure that any clumps you com across get broken up. Once these ingredients are smooth and mixed, you can move on to the next step of these instructions.

Lavender Bath Bomb Recipe: Preparing the Wet Ingredients

Next, you are ready to prepare the wet ingredients that you will need for this recipe. So, grab a second mixing bowl and the scale. Weigh 18 grams of the Sunflower Oil into this bowl. In addition to the cosmetic oil, you will need to include 18 grams of our Floral Musk Fragrance Oil. Now that these ingredients are added, you are ready to move on to the next step.

Lavender Bath Bomb Recipe: Combining the Wet and Dry Ingredients

Once both the wet and dry ingredients are prepared, you will be ready to combine the two mixtures. So, add the wet ingredients to your mixing bowl of dry ingredients. Now, use your gloved hands to thoroughly mix these ingredients together. You will need to continue to mix until everything is incorporated well. As soon as the ingredients look evenly dispersed, you can stop mixing.

Lavender Bath Bomb Recipe: Dividing the Mixture

Now you are going to be dividing your bath bomb mixture into two even portions. You can add each portion to one of your two mixing bowls. Set one of these bowls aside for the moment. We will be adding a few cosmetic ingredients to the other bowl in the next few steps.

Lavender Bath Bomb Recipe: Adding the Lavender FlowersLavender Bath Bomb Recipe: Adding the Lavender Flowers

First, we will be working with the first portion of the bath bomb mixture. So, take one of the mixing bowls full of half the mixture and the scale. Now, you will be adding about 5 grams of the Lavender Flowers Whole herb to this portion of the cosmetic recipe. Again, you will need to use a gloved hand to mix the wholesale herb into the recipe fully.

Lavender Bath Bomb Recipe: Spraying the Mixture

Now, you are ready to get these ingredients to stick together. So, use a gloved hand to mix the ingredients as you spray with witch hazel. Mixing as you spray will help to incorporate the witch hazel and let you know when you added enough spray. Once the mixture reaches a certain consistency, you will need to stop spraying the mixture. So, continue to mix and spray until the mixture begins to feel like crumbly dough. You will want to work slow and be careful not to add to much spray as it can ruin the recipe. Adding to much witch hazel can activate the ingredients early and lead to fizzing in the bowl. So, be sure to pay attention.

Lavender Bath Bomb Recipe: Filling Half of the Bath Bomb Molds

After, you are going to be ready to start filling up your bath bomb molds. You will need to take the seven bath bomb mold halves and get them ready to fill. Then, begin taking this mixture and filling one half of each wholesale mold. Make sure that you aren’t filling both sides of the same mold, as there is a top and bottom to each wholesale bath bomb mold. We would suggest filling the top half with this first mixture. You will need to make sure that you are packing the dough mixture into the bath bomb half tightly. Packing the mold well will ensure that the ingredients stick together and the bath bomb holds its shape.

Next, you will be working with the other half of the bath bomb mixture. In this bowl you will be adding 5 grams of the Lavender Flowers Powder and 6 grams of the Ultramarine Violet FUN Soap Colorant. Once these ingredients are added you will need to mix them well. Once again you will need to use a gloved hand to fully incorporate the herb powder and the colorant into the mixture.

Lavender Bath Bomb Recipe: Spraying the Second PortionLavender Bath Bomb Recipe: Spraying the Second Portion

Then, you are going to be spraying this second portion of the bath bomb mixture with your witch hazel. Just like before you will need to use your gloved hand to mix as you spray. Once this portion of the bath bomb mixture reaches the same crumbly dough consistency, you will be ready to move on to the next step. While this recipe should require about the same amount of witch hazel as before, you should still pay attention to the consistency to ensure that you don’t spray too much.

Lavender Bath Bomb Recipe: Filling the Bottom of the Molds

Next, we are going to be filling up the other halves of the bath bomb molds. The first portion of the bath bombs molds should each be in the top of the bath bomb mold. So, you can fill the bottom of these molds with this second portion of the dough mixture. Again, you will need to pack the dough in tightly. Also, you need to do it this way to sure that each pair is matched up correctly, as the tops will only fit on the bottoms. If you mess this up, then you can end up with bath bombs that aren’t half and half. Once you are done, you should have seven purple bath bomb halves that are packed full.

Lavender Bath Bomb Recipe: Combining the Bath Bomb Molds

Now that both of the two portions are packed tightly into the bath bomb molds, you are ready to combine the halves. So, take one half that is uncolored, which should be in a top piece, and one half that is purple, which should be in a bottom piece. Next, you are going to lightly spray each of the two halves. After you spray, you can push the two pieces together to create a whole bath bomb! You will need to repeat this step for all of the bath bombs.

Lavender Bath Bomb Recipe: Finishing the Bath BombsLavender Bath Bomb Recipe: Finishing the Bath Bombs

Lastly, you will need to wait for your bath bombs to completely set up. So, you will need to place your bath bombs in a safe place that they can rest until they have completely hardened.

What is Resveratrol and What Does It Do?What is Resveratrol and What Does It Do?

What is resveratrol and what does It do? Resveratrol is a natural polyphenol that is created by a few different plants. You may know resveratrol best from red wine, but it can be found in other plants, too. For example, the Japanese knotweed contains this herb, too. Whether you consume it from natural sources or get a resveratrol supplement, there are tons of benefits for your body. Plus, there are even benefits that this cosmetic herb can provide for your skin! At Natures Garden we sell the resveratrol extract powder herb for creating skin-loving bath and body products. However, there are many known benefits that this herb can provide for your whole body! Let’s talk about some of the benefits that resveratrol has for you!

What is Resveratrol and What Does It Do?: Growing Conditions

There are a few different natural sources that we know of that contain resveratrol. For this cosmetic herb, it can be harvested from two different sources. First, we have the Japanese knotweed that is a hardy plant that is able to survive against a bombardment of pests, fungus and disease in its native environment. Second, we can get resveratrol from the skin of red grapes. Both these plants can be used to extract the same herb. No matter the source, there are many beneficial properties found in resveratrol. If you are interested, you can read below to learn more about both plants.

What is Resveratrol and What Does It Do?: Red Grape SkinsWhat is Resveratrol and What Does It Do?: Red Grape Skins

Grapes require an area that is either full sun or gets direct sunlight in the morning. Also, most grapes require a warm climate, which the American grapes being the best for the cold. Their soil should be well draining, deep, loose, and moist due to a light layer of mulch. If you are growing new plants, then you will need to care and protect your plant for about three years before you get a harvest.

Once you get a bunch of grapes, you will know by the color. At first, they will be a bright green and they will turn to a deep, juicy red once they are ready. Just know that your grapes won’t continue to ripen after being picked. If you have grapes that won’t ripen, then you can prune some of the foliage to let more sun in for grapes that aren’t ripening. You can tell when your red grapes are ripe because the color will be a dark red without any visible green. Also, you can taste a few from different bunches to determine whether they are ready.

What is Resveratrol and What Does It Do?: The Japanese KnotweedWhat is Resveratrol and What Does It Do?: The Japanese Knotweed

The Japanese knotweed, or Polygonum cuspidatum, is a plant that is native to Japan. While this hardy plant is considered a weed in its country of origin, it is not a danger to its native environment. In fact, the resveratrol harvested from it has quite a few beneficial properties. However, when this hardy plant is moved to a new environment it can become an invasive species. Since the plants are native to Japan, they are integrated into the local ecosystem and have a good amount of competition.

However, when this species moves into a new area without the same competition it has a leg up on all the other organisms. This can lead to the native plants in this new environment to go extinct, which can be detrimental to an environment as organisms rely on one another. This animal may be a food source for another or it may have been a predator that would keep the prey population levels steady. So, in areas like the US and many other places, we would consider this plant an invasive species. This means that there is likely a ban on planting this herb if you live in an area other than Japan, China, or Korea.
