Nettle Bath Bomb Recipe: What is Nettle LeafNettle Bath Bomb Recipe: What is Nettle Leaf

If you are familiar with adding herbs and powders to your bath and body recipes, then I am sure you have heard of Nettle Leaf. It is actually very common plant that could possible be mistaken for a weed, however, this plant is anything but a pesky old weed! Nettle Leaf is also known as Common Nettle or Stinging Nettle (although not all varieties sting). Nettle Leaf is native to many parts of the world including North America and Europe. This perennial plant has even been found in ancient clothing from China dating back over 2000 years ago! That is correct! Not only is this leaf used medicinally and in the culinary trade, but the Nettle Leaf was used in creating clothes during World War II. Specifically in the uniforms used by the Germans.

Since it is also known as Stinging Nettle, you may wonder how does the leaf actually sting you? Well, there are little hairs along the sides of the leaves. If your skin comes into contact with the leaves, you will most likely experience, welts, rashes or blisters. However, once the leaves are dried, than they are safe to handle with no fear of getting stung.

Nettle Leaf is actually incredibly amazing for the body! As we stated above, it is a popular herb medicinally and topically and in the food. Chocked full of vitamins such as, Vitamin A, B, C, D and K, it also carries a large amount of iron, potassium, calcium, manganese, amino acids, phosphorous, magnesium, silica, silicon, protein and iodine. That is quite a bit of power in one plant!

Now that we have some knowledge of what nettle leaf can help you out with, let’s move on to the recipe!

Nettle Leaf Bath Bomb Recipe: Two Key Ingredients

In this bath bomb we have used two of your standard bath bomb ingredients, Citric Acid and Baking Soda! Citric Acid (when combined with baking soda) is what gives your bath bombs their fizz! It naturally occurs in citrus fruits and acts as a preservative. Also, citric acid is used in a multitude of products and industries. From foods to medicinal to bath and body products, it is a very convenient ingredient to have on hand. The other ingredient is Baking Soda, or Sodium Bicarbonate. This is a gentle, natural alkaline that is used in cosmetic formulations and cleaning formulas to lift dirt, and remove oils. It can be used in anything from a dish washing detergent to using as a rinse to help get your hair soft and shiny!

Nettle Bath Bomb Recipe: Avocado OilNettle Bath Bomb Recipe: Avocado Oil

Avocado Oil is a wonderful, moisturizing ingredient that is helpful for those with sensitive skin! It also is one of the few oils that has a high percentage of unsaponifiables (the portions of the oil that do not react with the lye to form soap). It is also full of vitamins such as A, D and E.

Nettle Bath Bomb Recipe: Kaolin Clay PowderNettle Bath Bomb Recipe: Kaolin Clay Powder

Kaolin Clay, also called China Clay, is a white clay that is perfect for sensitive skin types.  This clay is commonly used to make mineral makeup such as foundation, eye shadow, and blush.  Also, Kaolin clay is used in formulations as a thickener and is added to bath bombs to harden them.  Like most clays, kaolin clay helps cleanse the skin and remove toxins.

Now you will move onto the wet ingredients. In the second mixing bowl, weigh out 18 grams of Avocado Oil, 18 grams of Dragons Blood Fragrance Oil. You can stir these ingredients together to combine the two.

 

 

 

Nettle Bath Bomb Recipe: Combining the Wet and Dry Ingredients

Next, you will combine the wet and dry ingredients together. Mix in the wet to the dry and using your gloved hands, thoroughly combine these ingredients together. Make sure that the oils are evenly dispersed throughout the mixture.

Nettle Bath Bomb Recipe: Separating the Dough

The next step is to separate the bath bomb dough. Divide your dough in half. Place one half in a clean bowl and the other half can stay in the mixing bowl you combined the ingredients in.

Now that you have the dough separated you will be adding the nettle leaf. To the first bowl, weigh and add 5 grams of the cut and sifted nettle leaf.

Next, we will prepare the mixture that will be used for the second half of the mixture. So, to the next bowl, add 5 grams of the powdered nettle leaf.

Nettle Bath Bomb Recipe: Using the Witch Hazel

Now we will be mixing in the witch hazel. So to the first bowl, lightly mist the bath bomb mixture, mixing the ingredients with your hands. Continue to spritz the mixture with the witch hazel until you have a nice crumbly dough-like consistency throughout the bath bomb dough. Once you have completed the first bowl, you can move onto the second bowl. Combine and spritz the mixture with the witch hazel as you did before. When the second bowl is of the same crumbly, dough you can stop mixing.

With both of our mixtures combined and at the right consistency, you will now be using the bath bomb molds. To the first half of the mold, pack in the mixture containing the nettle leaf powder. Make sure you have it packed in tightly and firmly.

 

 

 

To the other half of the mold, add in the mixture containing the nettle leaf cut and sifted, making sure it, too, is packed in tightly.

Nettle Bath Bomb Recipe: Putting the Two Halves TogetherNettle Bath Bomb Recipe: Putting the Two Halves Together

Now that both halves are filled, you will be putting them together to make the bomb. First, lightly mist each half of the bath bomb with the witch hazel. This will help ensure that the two halves bind together. Now you can put the halves together, pushing tightly to lock the mold into place. Continue this process until you have used up all the bath bomb dough. This recipe makes approximately six bath bombs.

Nettle Bath Bomb Recipe: Using the Bath Bomb

Before using your awesome new bath bomb, you will need to allow them to set up and harden. Once they have hardened and set up, you can allow them to stay in the mold, or you can remove them and package how you desire. When it is bath time, simply place the Nettle Bath Bomb under some warm bath water. Relax and enjoy the delights of bath time!
