Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Preparing Your Work Space

Before you start, we would like to suggest that you make a few preparations. A pair of gloves is recommended, as you will need to mix with your hands. An apron may be useful to protect your clothing.  Also, a hair net and face mask are recommended. Second, you are going to want to prepare all your ingredients and supplies for this recipe. This will ensure that the project runs smoothly and you have all the materials that you need. Finally, you should clean your work space and equipment to make sure that your recipe will be clean and free of dirt.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing the Dry Ingredients

First, we are going to combine all of your dry ingredients into one of your mixing bowls. So, get a medium or large mixing bowl ready. Also, you will need a gram scale in order to measure these ingredients. Then, to your bow,l weigh out 460 grams of the Baking Soda, 410 grams of the Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, 224 grams of the Cream of Tartar, and 72 grams of the Corn Starch.

Next, you are going to mix these previously measured ingredients together. You will need to make sure that these dry ingredients are mixed together well before moving on to the next step. Also, make sure you break up any clumps in the powders. This will ensure that each essential ingredient is evenly dispersed and clump-free throughout your entire batch.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing the Wet IngredientsPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing the Wet Ingredients

Now, you are going to weigh your wet ingredients. You can do this part of the recipe one of two ways. You could weigh your ingredients into a small bowl and transfer them into your large mixing bowl of dry ingredients. Alternatively, you can measure the wet ingredients into the same mixing bowl as your dry ingredients. Either way you will need to measure out 200 grams of the vegetable glycerin, 24 grams of the rice bran oil, and 14 grams of the Spring Rain Fragrance Oil.

Now that both your wet and dry ingredients have been measured into your large mixing bowl you are ready to mix. Use your clean, gloved hands to mix together all of your ingredients. It is important that you mix these together well because you will be dividing the dough into portions. So, you will want to make sure that each portion has about the same amount of the ingredients.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Separating the Batch

Next, you are going to be separating your mixed bubble bar dough into two equal portions. So, grab your two other mixing bowls. You will need to put half of your batch into each of the bowls. You can eyeball the amounts or measure them if your would prefer. But, you just need to make sure that there is about half in each bowl.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe:Preparing the White PortionPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe:Preparing the White Portion

The white portion of your batch is very simple to prepare. The hardest part is making sure that this bowl contains about half of the total dough. After, you have divided up your batch just roll the uncolored bubble bar into a ball. You can leave this white bubble bar dough ball in this bowl until we are ready to roll out the layers. So, you can move on to preparing the other half of this recipe.

The second portion of the bubble bar dough is going to a bit more fun. While the first portion of this recipe was left uncolored, this section is going to be made a pretty shade of pink. Plus, this half of the bubble bar dough even uses Himalayan Pink Salt. This will create a pretty pink layer that would be wonderful for a diy salt soak. So, lets get started on creating the fun half of this bubble bar recipe!

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding the Colorant to the Pink PortionPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding the Colorant to the Pink Portion

Now, you are going to prepare the other half of your bubble bar dough. So, take this second half and add in three drops of the Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant. This amount is perfect for giving us a pretty shade of pink for this layer of the bubble bar. You will need to use your gloved hands to mix this color into the dough evenly. You will want to want sure that you don’t have any specks of dye left unincorporated. 

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding the Colorant to the Pink PortionPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding the Colorant to the Pink Portion

Now that this portion is colored, you will need to finish up this half of the batch. First, you are going to add in the Himalayan Pink Salt to your dough. So, weigh out 10 grams of the fine ground pink salt. Make sure that you mix this ingredient into the dough very well. Once all of the fine pink salt has been incorporated you can roll the dough into a ball. Now, you are ready for the next step in the process.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Flattening Out the DoughPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Flattening Out the Dough

Next, you are going to be rolling out the dough. Before you start you are going to want to lay down either a silicone mat or a piece of parchment paper. This will be used to roll our bubble bar once we have made our layers. Then, you will need to sprinkle this mat or paper with a bit of baking soda. This will make sure that your bubble bar is easy to roll and doesn’t stick to your mat or paper.

Our outside layer is going to be the pink portion, so you will need to roll this portion out first. You will need to use a rolling pin to flatten out this bubble bar dough. Try to roll the dough into a rectangular shape. Also, you will want the dough to be about a quarter inch thick.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Flattening Out the Second LayerPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Flattening Out the Second Layer

After your first layer has been rolled out, you are ready to flatten out the second layer. So, take your uncolored dough ball and place it right on top of the pink layer. Now, flatten this layer out to match the rectangular shape of the first layer. You will be finished once the layers are about the same thickness and size. But, you don’t need to be exact. The slight imperfections will add to the uniqueness of each bubble bar!

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Creating the RollPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Creating the Roll

Now that your two layers have been made you are ready to roll your bubble bar loaf. So, turn your parchment paper of silicone mat vertically, as shown to the right. Next, you will lift up the edge that is closest to you. You will need to begin to roll the dough onto itself. This process is similar to how you would wrap a jelly roll or pumpkin roll. You will want to go slowly as you roll and continue until all of the dough has been rolled into the loaf.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Topping the Bubble BarPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Topping the Bubble Bar

Once the bubble bar loaf has been created, you are ready to start decorating the top of your bath and body product. Part of the decorating will be done with Coarse Ground Himalayan Pink Salt. You will be sprinkling the top of the loaf with the coarse ground pink salt. You should need about 20 grams of this for the top, but you can use more or less as you see fit. Also, you will need you slightly press the sprinkled pink salt into the top of the loaf. Otherwise, the pink salt will be likely to fall off easily and you will lose all of your pretty shades of pink salt.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding The Mica Dust

The other ingredient that you will use to decorate is mica dust. This lovely powder is perfect for creating a bath and body product that shimmers and shines. For this recipe you will use both the 24k Gold Mica Pigment and the Diamond Dust Mica Pigment. Liberally sprinkle the top of your loaf with each mica powder. After, use a craft brush to remove any excess mica. Dusting off the mica will make sure that your bars don’t have streaks of gold mica after you slice your bars.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Slicing the Bubble BarsPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Slicing the Bubble Bars

Now you are ready to slice your bubble bar loaf into pieces! We suggest making each bar somewhere between one inch and two inches. This will make sure you have enough for each bath. Depending on the thickness you choose, you will have about eight individual bubble bars.

Once your slices have been made all you have to do is wait for your bars to set up. Based on how long our bubble bar took, it should take about 48-72 hours, or 2-3 days, for your bubble bars to completely set up. However, this can take longer depending on your climate. You will know that your bars are ready to use when they have hardened.

If you are ready to use this beautiful bath product, then just crumble the bubble bar under some warm, running water. The easiest way to do this is do this is to draw a bath and crumble your bar as the tub is filling up.

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!

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.

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.
