How to use Castor Oil in Soap

There are a lot of different oils available that you can use to add to your soap recipe. Soap contains fatty acids which these oils make up. One oil that stands out is Castor Oil, and I’m going to explain how to use castor oil in soap. Castor Oil is commonly used in cold process soaps to give it a very lathery feel, and is all around a wonderful product to use. You aren’t only limited to soaps though, castor oil can be used in different cosmetic skin oils, bath products, lip products, and many other different products. Explained below are a lot of different benefits you can get out of castor oil, and some of our recipes that we’ve created using it.

 

Castor Oil Usage Rates in Cold Processed SoapCastor Oil Usage Rates in Cold Process Soap

The basic foundation of making any type of soap is mixing fatty acids, lye, and water. For cold process soaps, or any soap in general, NaOH is the preferred lye compound to use. Castor oil is used in the category of fatty acids, as it is made up of three different acids. The fatty acids are identified below with their percentage amount used in the castor oil composition. It is recommended that 5%-8% of castor oil is used in any cold process or hot process soap recipe. Using anywhere above 10% is known to make your soap really stick and unappealing to use.  Also, to saponify one gram of Castor Oil, you need to add .128-.180mg of NaOH for cold processed soap. Castor oil is also known to have a shelf life of one year after opening.

Ricinoleic – 90%
Oleic – 4%
Linoleic – 4%

Properties of Castor Oil

There are many unique properties associated with castor oil that make it a great oil choice to use in cold process soap. Castor Oil is a humectant, which means that it attracts moisture to your skin. Due to this property, it’s great to use in cold process soap, because it’ll allow you to retain moisture when using.  You can also add castor oil to lip balms and massage oils to create a silky glide. The silky glide will make applying the product way easier. On top of its moisturizing qualities, this oil is also known to provide hair growth stimulation as well. Just add the oil to any of our soap or conditioner recipes to see it’s full effects. Adding this oil to cold process soap will also make it more conditioning, thus allowing your hands to be softer after use.

 

Castor Oil for Soap and CosmeticsBenefits of Using Castor Oil

There are many benefits to using castor oil in any of our recipes. This oil is a thicker oil, so any product that it’s used in will be an excellent moisturizer. There are also a lot of natural fatty acids that make up this oil. This makes the oil great for use with the skin.  Castor oil will not only moisturize you, but will nourish your skin as well. When used in lotions and body butters, this oil is also known to make your skin appear more youthful. This oil can also be used in cosmetics, like for example in mascara. When used in mascara, castor oil is believed to be contributed to growing darker, more full eyebrows over time. When applied directly to the skin, this oil is also known to be antibacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory.

Sangria Shimmer Bath Bombs RecipeSangria Shimmer Bath Bombs Recipe

We have a fun recipe that we will be teaching all of you how to make in this blog! We will be talking about our new Sangria Shimmer Bath Bombs Recipe! If you are a beginner when it comes to making and creating bath bombs and would like to learn how you can do it yourself, this blog will be perfect for you. Even if you have a lot of experience in this industry and have been making bath bombs forever, we hope that this will provide you with some inspiration!

This blog will be giving you an easy to follow, step by step demonstration to make it simple for people of all levels to be able to create these homemade bath bombs. We will also be introducing to you a new product that we will soon be carrying for our brand and website, sodium lauryl sulfoacetate. This creates a lovely lather and foam, which is great for recipes such as this one. Let’s begin!

Ingredients Found at Natures Garden:

Citric Acid
Baking Soda–Sodium Bicarbonate
Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate
Kaolin Clay Powder
Sangria Punch Fragrance Oil
Himalayan Pink Salt Coarse Ground
Himalayan Pink Salt Fine Ground
Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant
Jojoba Oil
Diamond Dust Mica Pigment
8 oz. Clear PET Bullet Bottles
White Fine Mist Sprayers 24/410
Safety Gloves
Safety Mask
Natures Garden Soap Apron
Safety Glasses
Bath Bomb Molds

Other Ingredients & Equipment You Will Need:

Scale
Mixing Bowls
Mixing Spoon
Witch Hazel (in spray bottle)

Total Recipe Amounts:

300 grams Citric Acid
600 grams Baking Soda
182 grams Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate
10 grams Kaolin Clay Powder
18 grams Jojoba Oil
18 grams Sangria Punch Fragrance Oil
3 drops Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant
4 grams Diamond Dust Mica Pigment
40 grams Himalayan Pink Salt Fine Ground
18 grams Himalayan Pink Salt Coarse Ground

Before we begin, fill your spray bottle with witch hazel to have it ready in advance. Let’s also make sure that we have properly cleaned the area that we will be working in. We should wipe down the counters at your station as well as any materials, equipment, and, if necessary, any containers of ingredients that we will be using. This way, it is less likely that ingredients from past projects will mix in with new ones. We also want to note that this recipe is best prepared in non-humid environments.

Creating the Powder MixtureCreating the Powder Mixture

This sangria bath bomb recipe will create enough mixture for seven bath bombs. For the first step, weigh out your 600 grams of sodium bicarbonate also known as baking soda. Use your hands to break up any clumps. To this bowl, also add the 10 grams of kaolin clay, 4 grams of diamond dust mica pigment, and the 182 grams of sodium lauryl sulfoacetate (SLSA).

This last ingredient is very important when making this bath bomb recipe. It provides luxurious lathering qualities and can remove dirt and oil from the surface of the skin and is an excellent foaming agent. Clearly, we need a bath bomb to foam and fizz, which is provided by this element, along with the reaction of the citric acid and the baking soda. Sodium lauryl sulfoacetate derives from palm oil and coconut oil, which makes it moisturizing and gentle on the skin. Once again, use your hands to break up any clumps that you see, and to mix the ingredients together fully.

Mixing the Liquid IngredientsMixing the Liquid Ingredients

Next, we need to measure out 18 grams of the jojoba oil and add it in a separate bowl. Then, we are also going to weigh out 18 grams of the Sangria Punch Fragrance Oil. This is what is going to give your bath bomb a scent, both when you finish this product and when it fizzes in your bath later on. It is actually a Natures Garden original fragrance oil. It is a multi layered scent with fresh fruity top notes of orange, lemon, grape, apple, and lime. The middle notes are blackberries and pomegranate, and the base note is a sugary smell. This is one of our many versatile fragrance oils, as it can be used to make potpourri, candles, incense, perfume, lotion, bath products including soap, oils, gels, and of course, bath bombs.

Combine the Dry Ingredients with the Liquid IngredientsCombine the Dry Ingredients with the Liquid Ingredients

Now that you have mixed your liquid ingredients of jojoba oil and the Sangria Punch Fragrance Oil, we can now combine them with our powder mixture. This is the time to pour in the liquid mixture into the bowl of powder mixture. Then, properly mix everything together by using your hands. We find that when we use our hands instead of soap making tools or supplies, the ingredients get mixed together much more thoroughly. The reasoning behind using this technique is similar to why people choose to do it when they are cooking and baking as well. It will be more of a balanced mixture this way.

Splitting the Combined MixtureSplitting the Combined Mixture

Now that the mixture of liquids has been combined with the mixture of powders, we need to divide that into two halves. To the one half, add your 40 grams of fine ground Himalayan pink salt. To the second half, we need to add the tomato red FUN soap colorant. This soap colorant is going to create the pink portion of this fun bath bomb. Once again, it is better to use your hands to mix the contents of each bowl together. Do not combine the ingredients in each bowl back together, however. Mix them in their separate bowls because we are making a white half and a pink half for our bath bomb.

Creating the White Bath BombCreating the White Bath Bomb

We are going to begin with the white bath bomb mixture first. So, add 150 grams of the citric acid to the mixture that you already have, and mix it in with everything else. Then, spray the mixture with witch hazel and mix it again. We used witch hazel to add some more moisture to our bath bombs. It also has plenty of benefits that come along with it, such as antiseptic properties, soothing irritated skin, and it is good for the skin overall. Continue mixing and spraying until you have a crumbly dough consistency to work with.

Forming the Right ConsistencyForming the Right Consistency

Now, add the three grams of the coarse pink Himalayan salt to one half of each bath bomb mold. Once you add the salt, mix everything together nicely. When you are finished with this step, you should have reached the right consistency. It is similar to wet sand, but should hold its shape when you squeeze it in your hand, as the picture demonstrates. It will look the same as a typical bath bomb.

Packing the First Part of the MoldsPacking the First Part of the Molds

Once you have the right consistency down, get your bath bomb molds ready to use. Remember that you should have seven of them for this recipe. Start packing one half of your seven bath bomb molds tightly with the white mixture that you have just finished making. That part is now done. Set the molds aside while we finish the pink portion of this recipe. Once that is set to the side, we can start completing this sangria shimmer bath bomb!

We also carry various types and shapes of molds other than this bath bomb mold, if you are interested. We have tons of different molds on the Natures Garden website that are easily accessible to our customers. There are soap molds, embed molds, as well as some pillar molds. There are more than thirty of the embed molds alone on our site! Some of the shapes that they come in that are relevant to this time of the year are ornaments, small bells, and champagne bottles! Each of the types of molds can be used for a variety of creations and recipes that you can come up with. We love them because they are super easy to work with, add character to any creation, and there are so many different kinds!

Mixing the Pink Half of the MixtureMixing the Pink Half of the Mixture

Now that we have the white portion set up and packed into the bath bomb mold, we can finish the pink half of the mixture. So, we will need to add our 150 grams of the citric acid to this current half of the mixture that we have. Then, to incorporate the citric acid in, we need to mix it all together using our hands.

Hand Mix to Create a DoughHand Mix to Create a Dough

After it is fully mixed in, you can begin spraying the pink bath bomb mixture with witch hazel. Remember, witch hazel is good to use in bath products because it can cleanse and soothe irritated skin. Then, mix it once again, using your hands. Continue spraying and mixing until your mixture is at a crumbly dough like consistency, just as we did with the white mixture previously.

Packing the Second Part of the MoldsPacking the Second Part of the Molds

Finally, the last step is to add the pink bath bomb dough to the second half of each of the seven molds. Then, spray each of the white halves and each of the pink halves of the molds with the witch hazel. Lastly, all you have to do is press the two halves together and you are finished. The two halves will come together really nicely, especially due to the very pretty pink shade from the second part!

Let Your Bath Bombs Set Up

Before these sangria bath bombs can be used, you need to give them enough time to really allow them to set up. You can let them set up overnight at room temperature. Then, you can either leave them in these same molds and use them for packaging, or you might want to remove them from the molds and package them in a different way.

We hope that you had fun making these and that you enjoy the sangria shimmer bath bombs recipe! If you would like to share your results with us, you can always reach out and send them to us on Twitter (@ngscents), Instagram (@ngscents), or Facebook: (Natures Garden).

Cappuccino Coffee Cold Process Soap RecipeTen Coffee Craft Ideas Cappuccino Coffee Cold Process Soap Recipe

Do you love iced coffee? If so, you might end up loving this idea of a cappuccino soap. To me, this recipe showcases what the result would be if you turned your favorite iced coffee into a soap. Some of the ingredients in this recipe include freshly brewed coffee, coffee grounds, and whole coffee beans. The combination of all three of these make this soap smell delicious, just like a fresh pot of coffee!

Since this is a cold process soap, there is no heat added when creating it. Adding heat when making soap definitely helps it to cure more quickly. However, when there is no heat added as is the case for this recipe, the overall finish and look of your product will be more perfected than with hot processed soap. Yes, it will need more time to cure without having that element of heat, but it is worth it when the finished product looks amazing. Cold process soap usually has a better looking product in the end. This recipe will provide you with about four pounds of soap.

Christmas Coffee Wax Tarts RecipeTen Coffee Craft Ideas Christmas Coffee Wax Tarts Recipe

Christmas is right around the corner, and this recipe is perfect for the most wonderful time of the year. It could be a great gift for a friend or family member who enjoys melting candles or wax melts, especially because these are homemade. This is an easy recipe to follow and the mini muffin shaped molds make it extra cute! Baking endless cookies with family as Christmas approaches is one of the best things about the holidays. These wax tarts contain both Snickerdoodle Cookies fragrance oil and French Vanilla Coffee fragrance oil, and when these scents are combined, they make these tarts smell just like baking cookies around Christmas time! Our recipe here makes up to 24 wax tarts, which is plenty to keep both for yourself and as gifts to give to others.

Cinnanut Coffee Soap RecipeTen Coffee Craft Ideas Cinnanut Coffee Soap Recipe

Combining cinnamon and coffee? Yum!!! This mp soap recipe brings these two ingredients together in a wonderful way to make a deliciously scented soap. It contains our Cinnanut Columbian Cafe Fragrance Oil, which is one of Natures Garden’s original fragrances. It includes hints of butter, Brazil nuts, maple, and vanilla in addition to the cinnamon and the Columbian coffee notes.

This fragrance oil is used in many other products of ours as well. It performs very well with wow wax, joy wax, and soy wax when making candles. Some of the additional products we have used this fragrance oil in our body, bath, and perfume products. While the recipe above is a melt and pour soap, this coffee scent can also be used in cold processed soap. With this fragrance, there was no separation, no ricing, and no acceleration. As a soap, it has great scent retention and is strong in aroma beads.

Coffee Butter Scrub RecipeTen Coffee Craft Ideas Coffee Butter Scrub Recipe

This scrumptious Coffee Butter Scrub from Natures Garden is the perfect thing to add to your daily skin care routine.  It contains shea, cocoa, and mango butter which will make your skin feel soft and amazing!

Coffee Melt and Pour Soap RecipeTen Coffee Craft Ideas Coffee Melt and Pour Soap Recipe

Now that we have made cappuccino coffee soap and cinnanut coffee soap, let’s make regular coffee scented soap using our Goat’s Milk Melt and Pour Soap. This is different than hot and cold processed soap because it has already undergone the saponification process. Melt and pour soap comes in a premade base and does not need anything added to it, you just melt it!

Some of the ingredients included in this recipe are coffee grounds, cocoa butter, and Fresh Brewed Coffee World’s Best Fragrance Oil. Our cocoa butter is a saturated fat that is very hard. It is used in lip balms, lip gloss, lotions, massage bars, scrubs, and more because of its luxurious texture. The coffee fragrance oil used in this recipe can also be added to candles made from vegetable wax or paraffin wax. Another way to use it is to add it into cleaning products, perfumes and lotions, bath oils and bath gels, as well as in potpourri and incense. By following the instructions we have laid out, you will get a two pound batch of this coffee melt and pour soap.

Frappe Mocha Body Cream RecipeTen Coffee Craft Ideas Frappe Mocha Body Cream Recipe

Body creams are always a great thing to have on hand, especially as winter approaches. If your skin is anything like mine, it gets extremely dried out in the wintertime with the changes in weather and air quality. This is why body creams and lotions become my best friend in the months of winter. A product that moisturizes the skin, lasts me a long time, and smells great all at the same time is what I think everyone’s ideal cream would be!

Our frappe mocha body cream recipe will provide you with plenty of product that will last for months. This recipe makes four 4 ounce jars full of it!

How to Use Kaolin ClayHow to Use Kaolin Clay

If you have very sensitive skin, and need a recipe that will work with it, then check out these recipes by Nature’s Garden. We will talk about kaolin clay benefits, and different attributes that make up this wonderful clay. There are a lot of different minerals that make up kaolin clay that make it productive in any skin application. There are also a lot of different applications for this clay as it can be used in bath bombs, powders, and soap applications. The application for the clay is going to depend on it’s mineral composition. The best part about this clay is that it’s naturally occurring as well. So, you get the benefits of 100% natural minerals being present in the clay powder. We hope you enjoy learning about and seeing bath and body recipes involving this wonderful substance.

 

What is Kaolin Clay?

Kaolin Clay is a white, soft clay powder that is commonly used for people with sensitive skin. This clay is a type of silicate that was named “Gaoling” by the Chinese, then later adapted as “Kaolin” by the French. This clay is derived from the mineral called Kaolinite which is a soft, white, earthy mineral found from within the ground. In the United States some of the largest deposits of Kaolinite can be found in central Georgia. There’s a town in Georgia called Sandersville that is known as the “Kaolin Capital of the World”. Kaolin clay is commonly used in both cosmetics as well as soaping. This clay has the ability to harden different bath products as well as cleanse the skin.

 

Uses for Kaolin Clay outside of Cosmetics and Soap

While Natures Garden sells kaolin clay for use only in cosmetics, it has benefits in other industries as well. Kaolin Clay can be mixed with water to create a poultice for treating minor wounds. Another interesting use for Kaolin Clay is as a fruit fly repellent. All you need to do is add 2 tablespoons of Kaolin Powder for every 12 ounces of water into a water bottle. Afterwards, go around and spray any areas where you don’t want fruit flies. When Kaolin Clay is made, it’s tested for mineral content afterwards to see if it can be used for cosmetic, medicinal, or industrial purposes. Usually, Kaolin Clay is more commonly used in cosmetics though.

 

How to use Kaolin Clay in Different Cosmetics

Kaolin Clay poses a lot of different benefits when used in cosmetic recipes. For example, in bath bombs, Kaolin Clay is known to be a good color fixative which allows the color to show and not fuse within the bath bomb. It also acts as a hardening agent for bath bombs. When used in any bath fizzes or bath bombs, kaolin clay is a great way to soften the skin once you get out of the bathtub. Kaolin Clay is even used in deodorant recipes. When used in deodorant, this clay may help detoxify the skin underneath as well. You can also take advantage of the natural mineral makeup of this clay and use it in eye shadows, foundations, and blushes. This will allow you to get the true color that you’d desire.

 

How to use Kaolin Clay in Different Soaps

When used in soap, this clay is wonderful for those with sensitive skin. Kaolin Clay is rich in potassium, titanium, and silicon which when wet, will give your soap a smooth, silky, and creamy feel. Kaolin clay is also useful in retaining moisture when applied. The direct result of this is skin that is left moisturized and not so tight when you are done cleaning it. Also, this clay can be used to exfoliate your skin, leaving it smooth and clean.

 

Using Kaolin Clay to Help With Acne

When you use Kaolin Clay in body products, it not only can help some fight acne, but will do so in a smooth way that isn’t painful to your natural skin. This white clay, when used in soaps, is really good at picking up any oils. Some people will use this clay for types of skin conditions. Examples including: acne, skin irritations, skin inflammation, and dry flaky skin.

Everyone has a lot of fun carving pumpkins during this time of the year, and this bath bomb recipe attempts to capture those same sensations.

For the orange layer, this recipe calls for a natural ingredient, Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend Powder.

Lavender Facial Mask Recipe Using Kaolin ClayHow to Use Kaolin Clay: Lavender Facial Mask Recipe

This tranquil lavender facial mask recipe is wonderful to use on your face for relaxing and exfoliating your skin. Lavender is a great ingredient in trying to relax or even help you sleep. That’s why this face mask is usually used right before you are ready to go to bed. It can also help with sleeping conditions too and falling asleep earlier. The kaolin clay used in this recipe makes it wonderful for those with sensitive skin. On top of the kaolin clay, this recipe also calls for Vitamin E oil as well.

Christmas Tree Bath Bomb Recipe Using Kaolin ClayHow to Use Kaolin Clay: Christmas Tree Bath Bomb Recipe

The Christmas Tree Bath Bomb Recipe brings to life the spirit of Christmas. Anyone can make these bath bombs, and they make for a wonderful bathroom decoration as well.

Silky Shimmering Body Powder Recipe Using Kaolin ClayHow to Use Kaolin Clay: Silky Shimmering Body Powder Recipe

Kaolin Clay was the perfect choice for The Silky Shimmering Body Powder Recipe. Due to it’s natural tendency to have a soft feel to the skin, this clay powder is perfect for applying to sensitive skin. The ingredient that gives this recipe it’s shimmer is Nature’s Garden’s Mica Diamond Dust Pigment. This pigment has a very shiny color by itself, and when added to the body powder gives it that extra level of sheen. This recipe also uses Lovely in Lace Fragrance Oil to scent it. This fragrance oil uses a complex blend of floral notes all combined with base of musk.

Tea Tree Soap Recipe Using Kaolin ClayHow to Use Kaolin Clay: Tea Tree Soap Recipe

Finally, we will look at the Tea Tree Soap Recipe. This melt and pour soap recipe not only uses kaolin clay, it also uses Natures Garden’s pure tea tree essential oil. In this hemp mp soap making project, we show you how to use the white clay to allow you to swirl melt and pour soap. One half of the soap is scented and simply colored. The clay is added to other half of the soap. By adding the clay to half of the soap, it will make this portion a slightly thicker consistency. This creates a tension barrier, preventing the two colors of soap from mixing together. Instead of blending together, it creates swirls within each bar of soap.

 

Kaolin Clay comes from Kaolinite, which is a naturally occurring mineral. I’m going to discuss the process of how they extract these minerals. Understanding Kaolin Clay uses, also involves understanding where it comes from. This koalin clay article was used as a basis to understand the operations involved in mining this mineral. You can find the largest deposits of Kaolinite in the United States in Georgia. By itself, Kaolinite serves little to no purpose when extracted as a raw material. Before they start drilling for this material, land analysts research the land and make calculations on where the best location would be to find deposits. Afterwards, they drill 200 foot deep holes. They drill around 50-100 holes for every 100 acres to get a reasonable sample. This sample set will allow the miners to understand the quality of the Kaolinite in the area.

Sandalwood Bath Bombs Ingredient Spotlight

Prior to preparing the sandalwood bath bomb recipe, let’s look at a few of the ingredients that we will be using today. Below, we will look at the scent, citric acid, pink salt, and a couple of the natural colorants that we will be using.

Sandalwood Fragrance OilSandalwood Fragrance Oil

This Nature’s Garden fragrance oil is a fan favorite. It is a strong and natural scent. Sandalwood fragrance oil will make some of the best soaps and lotions, but it goes so well in candles as well. Our customers love the distinct scent. Its robust earthy smell will leave an impression! The base notes are a wonderful blend of woody cedar and sandalwood. The simple mix of rose and jasmine for the top notes balance the fragrance oil perfectly.  This simple earthy fragrance says it all once the sandalwood bath bomb hits your tub!

Jojoba OilJojoba Oil

Did you know that Jojoba oil is actually a liquid wax? It’s used in a lot of lipsticks, lip glosses, lotions, and other bath products. This luxurious oil will produce a substantial lather in handmade soap making recipes and has amazing moisturizing qualities. Additionally, jojoba oil stays shelf stable longer than most other moisturizing oils.  We also have a blog about the tremendous benefits of jojoba oil.

Rose Clay PowderRose Clay powder

Rose clay powder is a gentle, natural clay that is amazing for almost any skin type! Most people refer to it by “pink clay”. Rose clay exfoliates and removes toxins from the skin. It can reduce irritation and inflammation! Rose clay is used for all kinds of cosmetics and other body products. It provides critical minerals for your skin, while also naturally coloring your products! This is a perfect way to change up your next project or even make your favorite recipe without other colorants.

Citric AcidCitric Acid

Citric acid is found naturally in citrus fruits of all kinds including lemons, oranges, grapefruits, and especially limes! It is a weak, natural acid that is used in cosmetics to lower the pH balance in certain formulas. It’s also really common in the bath product industry for bath bombs. This is one of the base ingredients that make it fizz once it comes in contact with the water! A lot of other industries use this as an ingredient as well. Food, beverage, and cleaning companies use this in all types of products. Citric acid is also found in a lot of foods that we consume every day. It has so many uses, can you name one?

Himalayan Pink Salt CoarseHimalayan Pink Salt Coarse

Did you know that Himalayan Pink Salt is one of the earth’s purest salts due to the location where it is mined? It’s found in seabeds that were once surrounded by lava! Many people know this product for its use in food. However, the cosmetic industry uses pink Himalayan salt for many types of products as well. Some products include scrubs, bath bombs, bath salts and cosmetics! This natural salt has many therapeutic qualities. It can help ease sore muscles, relax the body, ease arthritis, and help many other skin conditions. It has tremendous amounts of important minerals for your body.

Cocoa PowderCocoa Powder

Cocoa powder is a product of the cocoa tree that is native to Central and South America. The fruits only grow for a third of the year and get picked when they are a yellow-orange color.  The cocoa pods are harvested to make all kinds of products. Common products for cocoa powder are skin products, shampoos, conditioners, and many more beauty products! Cocoa powder helps hair become smoother and moisturizes your dead ends. Some believe it may even help with hair loss due to stress. This ingredient will help your skin to repair damaged areas. Did you know that the Aztecs and Mayans thought that the cocoa tree would bring them immortality?

Before You Begin Preparing the Sandalwood Bath Bombs

The best place to start with the sandalwood bath bomb recipe is gathering all of your ingredients and equipment. Also, clean and sanitize your work area, equipment, molds, and your packaging supplies. It is suggested that you wear gloves, protective clothing, and a hair net while making this recipe. Before you start, fill one of the bullet bottles with witch hazel and place a fine mist sprayer on top. Finally, you do not want to prepare this recipe in a humid area. Bath bombs can pull moisture from the air. This can cause a bath bomb to react and start to fizz.

Preparing The Dry IngredientsPreparing the Dry Ingredients

In a large, clean, and dry mixing bowl, weigh out your citric acid and baking soda. Then, mix the two ingredients thoroughly. Make sure there are no clumps! Clumps in the dry ingredients will leave this mixture unevenly distributed. A sifter or a fine mesh strainer can help this process, which is optional. When you are sure that it is evenly combined, set this bowl of ingredients off to the side.

Preparing the Wet ingredientsPreparing the Wet ingredients

Use a separate small mixing bowl. Weigh out the wet ingredients, then add the jojoba oil and the fragrance to this bowl. Stir together until they are completely combined.  

 

Adding The Wet Ingredients To The DryAdding the Wet Ingredients to the Dry

Next, you will be adding the oils to your dry ingredients. The trick is adding them slowly, mixing with your hands as you go.  You want the wet ingredients to evenly be mixed into the dry.  Do your best to work out the clumps as much as possible. Once you have finished mixing everything together, divide the bath bomb mixture in half into two separate mixing bowls. Then you will be ready to start the coloring process!

Creating the Pink Bath Bomb MixtureCreating the Pink Bath Bomb Mixture

With one of the portions of the mixture in the mixing bowl, add the rose clay and the three drops of Tomato Red FUN soap colorant from Natures Garden. Now that the colorant is in the mixing bowl, thoroughly combine by using your hands to incorporate the coloring. You want to have an even color all the way through the mixture.

Spraying the Pink Bath Bomb Mixture with Witch HazelSpraying the Pink Bath Bomb Mixture with Witch Hazel

Once you are confident that it’s well incorporated, you will need the spray bottle of witch hazel. As you mix with your hands, begin to spray the mixture slowly. You are looking for a dough-like consistency. Be careful not to add too much at a time! You do not want to over activate the bath bomb. If it becomes too wet, it will not fizz in the bathtub.

Creating the Brown Bath Fizzy MixtureCreating the Brown Bath Fizzy Mixture

With the pink bath bomb mixture done, it’s time to create the brown bath fizzy mixture. Start by adding your cocoa powder and both colorants. Once those are in the mixture, make sure you spread the colorant throughout the entire bowl using your hands. You want to make sure you do not have any dark and light spots!

Spraying the Brown Mixture with Witch HazelSpraying the Brown Mixture with Witch Hazel

Again, now that it is combined completely, start spraying the ingredients with the witch hazel. Make sure that you do not soak the mixture. Lightly spray until it is at the desired consistency. A good way to test it is when you squeeze it with your hands, it will have a crumbly dough consistency. Now that you are done with this part of the recipe, you will want to move on to molding them fairly quickly.

Filling the Bath Bomb Molds

It is finally time to begin filling the bath bomb molds. We will be adding pink salt to one half of the mold. We will add the brown mixture to the same half and the pink bath fizzy mixture to the other half.

Adding the Himalayan Pink Salt to the Bath Bomb MoldsAdding the Himalayan Pink Salt to the Bath Bomb Molds

Start by placing about a gram of Himalayan coarse pink salt into the half of the mold that you will add the brown bath bomb mixture to. This recipe will create 6 handmade bath bombs.  So, you will need to prepare six bath bomb molds, filling one half of each set.

 

Filling Brown Half of the Bath Bomb MoldFilling Brown Half of the Bath Bomb Mold

On the same side that you added the pink salt, you will want to put the brown mix in. Fill it to the top and pack it down. By making sure the mixture is tight in the mold, it helps keep the bath fizzy together.

 

 

Packing The Pink Side Of The Sandalwood Bath BombsFilling the Pink Side of the Bath Fizzy Mold

Next, begin filling the pink side of the bath fizzy mold. Make sure that the mold is completely filled and packed down. Pack the mixture tightly and evenly.

 

Putting the Sandalwood Bath Bombs TogetherPutting the Sandalwood Bath Bombs Together

Now that both sides are filled, spray each half lightly with witch hazel. Then, press both halves together. The molds will lock together which keeps them in place. Once all of your molds are filled, allow the bath bombs to setup and harden. It helps to let them sit overnight.

 

Finishing And Packaging the Bath BombsFinishing And Packaging the Bath Bombs

Now that your bath bombs are hardened, you are ready to use them! Simply place one bath bomb into a relaxing bath and let them fizz as you soak your worries away.  These sandalwood bath bombs will have you smelling  and feeling fantastic!

Other Ingredients & Equipment You’ll Need:
Cutting Board

Microwave safe containers
Deep Mixing Bowl
Lollipop Sticks
Large Knife
Microwave
Rubbing alcohol (in the bullet bottle)
Wax Paper

A Few Additional Preparations

When preparing any type of bath bomb or bath fizzy recipe, it is best that they are prepared in non-humid climates.  Bath bombs fizz when added to water due to the combination of baking soda and citric acid being added to water.  So, when prepared in humid climates the bath bombs can actually react to the moisture in the air itself.   

Prior to making this recipe, pour some of your rubbing alcohol into your 8 ounce bullet bottle in order to be prepared.  Another option is witch hazel.  You can use witch hazel when creating bath bombs as well.  Both will work when creating bath bombs.  However, rubbing alcohol will create a harder bath fizzy.

About the Fragrance Oils

Before we begin, let’s take a look at the scents we will be using.  For this bath bomb recipe we will be working with two fragrance oils to create our candy apple bath bomb recipe.  First, we will use Natures Garden’s Caramel Fragrance Oil.  The second scent that we will be using in our bath fizzy project is the powerful Green Apple Explosion Fragrance Oil.

Caramel Fragrance OilCaramel Fragrance Oil

First, let’s look at Natures Garden’s Caramel fragrance oil.  This scent by  is the aroma of buttery, toffee caramel. It is a great to use by itself or to a wonderful scent to mix with others for creative fragrance blends.  In fact, it is smells wonderful when mixed with our Green Apple Explosion Fragrance Oil.

Green Apple Explosion Fragrance OilGreen Apple Explosion Fragrance Oil

Next, let’s talk about the Green Apple Explosion Fragrance Oil from Natures Garden!  This apple scent is unbelievably strong.  In my opinion, it is the strongest apple scent that we carry here at Natures Garden Candle and Soap Making Supplies. We believe we have quite possibly found the “spunkiest” green apple fragrance oil on earth!  We thought about calling it Granny Smith Apple, but this fragrance deserves a name that “pops” just like its aroma.  Thus, may we present:  Green Apple Explosion! This apple aroma is an NG original scent!

Prepare the Bath Bombs

To begin, we will prepare the bath bombs and allow them to setup before covering them with the melt and pour soap.  So, you will want to put on your apron and gloves before starting.

Recipe Weights for the Green Bath Bomb Portion

182 grams Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate
300 grams Citric Acid
600 grams Baking Soda
9 grams Green Apple Explosion Fragrance Oil
9 grams Caramel Fragrance Oil
4 grams Lime Green FUN Soap Colorant
4 grams Neon Green FUN Soap Colorant

Prepare the Powdered Ingredients for the Candy Apple Bath Bombs Recipe

Prepare the Baking SodaFirst, you will need a deep mixing bowl.  To your mixing bowl, add the baking soda.  Then, use your hands to break any clumps that you may find in the baking soda.   

 

Add the Sodium Cocoyl IsethionateNext, to the bowl containing the baking soda, add the sodium cocoyl isethionate.  Then, use your hands to blend the ingredients together.  Once again, as you are mixing, break up any clumps that you find in the mixture.

 

Add the Citric AcidThe final powdered ingredient that we will be adding is the citric acid.  So, add the citric acid to the bowl.  Then, mix the ingredients together.  Finally, break any lumps found in the mixture apart just as you did before.

Scenting and Coloring the Caramel Apple Bath Bombs Recipe

Coloring the Caramel Apple Bath Bombs Recipe

At this time, we will color and scent the candy apple bath bombs.  So, to the bowl containing the powdered ingredients, add the fragrance oils.  First, you will need to add 9 grams of the caramel fragrance oil.  In addition, add 9 grams of the green apple explosion fragrance oil.  Finally, we will add the two colorants.  So, to the same bowl add 4 grams of the lime green colorant and 4 grams of the neon green FUN Soap Colorant from Natures Garden.  Once you have added the ingredients, use your hands to mix everything together.  You will want to be sure everything is mixed thoroughly before moving on.

Prepare the Candy Apple Bath Bomb Mixture for the Molds

Prepare the Candy Apple Bath Bomb Mixture for the MoldsNow, you will need the bottle of rubbing alcohol that you prepared earlier.  Then, begin spraying the candy apple bath bomb mixture with rubbing alcohol.  You will want to spray in small amounts.  So, spray a small amount of the rubbing alcohol and then use your hands to mix.  Continue spraying and mixing.  You will want to repeat this process until it reaches a point that you can squeeze the mixture and it holds a form.  However, be careful not to overspray the mixture.  If this happens, your bath bomb will become too wet and it will not fizz when it is added to the bathtub.

Fill the Bath Bomb Molds

Fill the Bath Bomb MoldsOnce your bath bomb mixture is at the proper consistency, you can fill the bath bomb molds.  You will need a total of seven sets of bath bomb molds.  Begin filling each of your molds.  Make sure you are packing the molds tightly.  You will need to fill a total of seven molds. 

Putting the Candy Apple Bath Bomb TogetherWhen you have filled all seven molds, you can put the two halves together.  Before pressing the two halves together, spray each one with rubbing alcohol.  Then, press them together.  Allow the bath bombs to setup overnight before moving on.

Adding the Lollipop Stick

Adding the Lollipop Stick

Once your bath fizzies have setup, remove them from the bath bomb molds.  Then, you will need to add one lollipop stick to each bath bomb.  Place a stick through the center of each bath bomb.  You want to apply gentle pressure and slowly insert the stick.  If you apply too much pressure or try to move too quickly, your bath bomb can begin cracking.  Place the candy apple bath bombs on a sheet of wax paper.  Alternatively, you can place them on a silicone baking mat.

Prepare the Melt and Pour Soap Base

The next step will be preparing the melt and pour soap base.  We will begin by preparing a caramel colored hemp oil melt and pour soap base.  Then, we will go over it with the clear melt and pour soap base.  Now, I am sure you are wondering why we are using two different types of soap base for this portion of the candy apple bath bombs recipe.  Well, we first attempted this recipe using only the clear base.  It took quite a few layers to get a full coverage and used a lot of soap base.  So, then, we added a caramel colored layer using the hemp oil soap base.  However, this look did not have the shiny caramel look that we wanted.  So, we ended up doing a layer of the hemp oil soap base to get the full coverage.  Then, we added a second layer using the clear soap base.

Total Recipe Weights for Hemp Oil Soap Portion

100 grams Hemp Oil MP Soap Base
2 grams Caramel Fragrance Oil
2 grams Green Apple Explosion Fragrance Oil
15 drops Yellow Oxide FUN Soap Colorant
2 drops Red Oxide FUN Soap Colorant

Creating the First Layer of Melt and Pour Soap

Creating the First Layer of Melt and Pour SoapNow, we will prepare the first layer of caramel soap.  For the first layer, we will use the hemp oil melt and pour soap base.  So, in a small bowl, weigh out and melt the hemp oil soap base.  You will want to melt the mp soap in 30-second bursts until the base is in a liquid state.  Then, add the red oxide and yellow oxide FUN Soap Colorants.  Finally, add both the caramel fragrance oil and the green apple explosion fragrance oil.  Stir the melted soap base to blend everything together.

Adding the First Layer of Melt and Pour Soap to the Candy Apple Bath Bombs

Adding the First Layer of Melt and Pour Soap to the Candy Apple Bath Bombs
At this time, you will need a disposable pipette.  Using the disposable pipette, drizzle the caramel colored hemp oil soap over the green bath bombs.  Then, allow the soap to completely setup before moving on.

Total Recipe Amounts For Diamond Clear Soap Portion

100 grams Diamond Clear MP Soap Base
2 grams Caramel Fragrance Oil
2 grams Green Apple Explosion Fragrance Oil
10 drops Yellow Oxide FUN Soap Colorant
1 drops Red Oxide FUN Soap Colorant

Prepare the Clear Melt and Pour Soap

Once you have coated your candy apple bath bomb with the hemp oil mp soap, we will cover it with a clear caramel colored soap base. 

Creating the Clear Caramel SoapPrepare the Clear Soap Base

So, weigh out and melt 100 grams of the diamond clear soap base.  Then, add the caramel and apple fragrance oils. In addition, add 10 drops of yellow oxide FUN Soap Colorant and 1 drop of the red oxide FUN Soap Colorant.  Stir to blend the ingredients together.

Adding the Clear Caramel Soap to the Bath BombsAdd the Clear Caramel Colored Soap Base

Use a disposable pipette to drizzle each caramel apple with the caramel coating. Once your soap sets up, your Candy Apple Bath Bombs are ready to use!

Before you begin making your bath bomb recipe, there are a few preparations. First, you will want to gather all of your equipment for making cosmetics.

Also, you will want to sanitize your equipment to make sure your work area is clean and ready to use. Further, it is suggested that you wear gloves, protective clothing, and a hair net while you prepare your soap recipe.

One more thing that you will want to prepare before you get started with this bath recipe is your bottle of witch hazel.

You can add these cosmetic oils to your medium mixing bowl. Then, you will need to use your gloved hands to blend these cosmetic ingredients together evenly. Once your mixture has been mixed well, you are going to divide your mixture in half. One half can remain in the bowl and the other half can be added to a new mixing bowl.

Hawaiian Splash Bath Bomb Recipe: Using Your Finished Bath Bombs

Finally, you have finished creating your bath bomb recipe. Now you just need to wait for your wholesale bath bombs to set up completely. You will know that your bath bombs have completely set up as they will begin to harden. Once your bath bombs are set up, you can remove them from the mold.

Cucumber Melon Bath Bomb Recipe: A Note About This Recipe

Since this cosmetic recipe is activated by water, you will find that this bath and body recipe is best prepared in climates that aren’t very humid. So, you may want to pay attention to the amount of humidity in your area. If your climate is too humid, your bath bombs might not set up completely.

Cucumber Melon Bath Bomb Recipe: Preparing the Baking Soda

First, you will want to measure out your baking soda and add it to a medium mixing bowl. So, you will want to measure out 460 grams of Baking Soda. After you have your baking soda weighed, you will want to break up all of the clumps. One of the easiest ways that you can break up these baking soda clumps is to use your hands.

Cucumber Melon Bath Bomb Recipe: Separate the Mixture Into Portions

Next, you are going to need to divide your bath bomb recipe into two even portions. So, you will have half of this recipe in the same mixing bowl and half of your cosmetic mixture in a new mixing bowl. Once your bath bomb mixture is divided you are ready to add your soap colorants to the portions.

Also, you will want to add a very small amount of the Neon Yellow FUN Soap Colorant, which you can add using a toothpick.

Also, you can incorporate more of these colorants if the bath mixture is not yet at the right shade of lime green.

Cucumber Melon Bath Bomb Recipe: Coloring the Green PortionNext, you are going to create the green portion of this bath bomb recipe.

You will need to use a clean pair of gloves to mix the green color into your mixture. Once you have the color mixed in, you can determine whether you need to add more colorant to achieve a pretty green hue.

Cucumber Melon Bath Bomb Recipe: Activating the Lime Green Portion

Now, you are going to grab your lime green colored portion of the bath bomb mixture. Also, you are going to want to grab the bottle of witch hazel. You will want to spray a few squirts of the witch hazel into the bowl. Then, use clean gloves to mix the lime green bath bomb mixture. You will want to continue spraying and mixing the mixture until it takes on a crumbly dough consistency. Be careful not too overspray as this can potentially activate your mixture in the bowl.

Cucumber Melon Bath Bomb Recipe: Filling Half of the Bath Bomb Mold

Next, you are going to be filling the bottom half of your bath bomb molds. So, separate your bath bomb molds and set aside the top half of the mold for now. Take one of these bath bomb molds and begin filling it with your lime green mixture. You will want to make sure that you press firmly so that you pack the mixture tightly into the cosmetic mold. Once each of these bath bomb bottom halves are full, you can set them aside for the time being.

Cucumber Melon Bath Bomb Recipe: Filling the Other Half of the Bath Bomb MoldNow that your mixture is at a crumby dough consistency, you are ready to add this mixture to the other half of the bath bomb mold.

After your bath bomb mold is snapped shut, you will want to continue to spray and push your molds together.

Cucumber Melon Bath Bomb Recipe: Letting Your Bath Bombs Set Up

Now you just need to wait for your bath bombs to set up! As your bath bombs rest they will begin to harden as they set up.

Before beginning this bath bomb recipe, you will need to prepare a bottle of witch hazel. This witch hazel will be used a little later on in the process to activate the bath bomb mixture. So, you will want to fill your 8 oz bullet bottle with witch hazel and add the spray bottle lid. Now, you can set this bottle aside until you need it at a later step. 

Also, you may want to get disposable, latex gloves for this recipe. Wearing gloves allows you to use your hands to mix the bath bomb, which is easier to mix your cosmetic ingredients. Plus, the gloves will help you to keep your cosmetic mixture clean as you are mixing your bath bomb ingredients.

First, you are going to weigh out 460 grams of the Baking Soda. After measuring this amount of baking soda, you are going to add this ingredient to a medium mixing bowl. Once you have measured and added this cosmetic ingredient to your bowl, you will want to break up any of the clumps in your baking soda. One of the easiest ways for you to break up these clumps is the use your hands. Of course, you will want to wear gloves to protect your bath bomb mixture. This way you can safely use your hands to easily break up the clumps that may be present. This will make sure the baking soda power is smooth and ready to mix with the other cosmetic ingredients.

Bacon Bath Bomb Recipe: Adding the Cosmetic Clay Powders

Once your baking soda is smooth and free of clumps, you are ready to add the remaining dry ingredients to the mixture. So, you are going to want to measure and add these dry ingredients to your medium mixing bowl. So, you will need to weigh out 250 grams of the Citric Acid. Also, you will need to measure 10 grams of the Bentonite Clay powder. Then, add both of these ingredients to your medium mixing bowl. After adding these ingredients, you can use your gloved hands to thoroughly mix your cosmetic ingredients together. Once all of your ingredients have been mixed together well, you are ready to move on to the next step in this process.

Now, you are ready to scent your luscious bath bomb mixture with the lovely aroma of our Bacon Fragrance Oil. This delicious and fun bath bomb scent was created to have an aroma that smells just like real, freshly made bacon! If you would like to add this yummy scent to your bath bomb recipe, then weigh out 14 grams of the wholesale Bacon Fragrance Oil.

Bacon Bath Bomb Recipe: Separating and Coloring the Mixture

Now that your dry cosmetic ingredients and the fragrance oil mixture are fully blended together, you are ready to separate the mixture into portions. You will need to separate your cosmetic mixture into three, even portions. So, you will want to use two additional mixing bowls and move some of your mixture to have an equal portion of this mixture in each bowl. Each of these portions will be a different color for your bath recipe.

Bacon Bath Bomb Recipe: The First Portion of the Mixture

First, you will have a mixture portion that will remain uncolored. So, this portion of the mixture will be white in the final bath bomb mixture. Now, you can set this bowl of uncolored mixture aside for the time being.

Bacon Bath Bomb Recipe: Coloring One Mixture Portion

Now, you will want to choose one of your two remaining portions of this cosmetic mixture to color. You will be using both Red Oxide and Brown Oxide to this cosmetic mixture. Then, add a small amount of the Red Oxide FUN Soap Colorant along with a few drops of the Brown Oxide FUN Soap Colorant to this bowl. You can use a toothpick to add a small amount of the Red Oxide to your mixture. After adding these cosmetic soap colorants, you are ready to mix everything together. Again, you will want to use gloved hands to mix the colorant fully into your bath bomb mixture. Continue mixing your cosmetic ingredients until the color has been evenly blended.

Bacon Bath Bomb Recipe: Coloring the Second Mixture Portion

Next, you will want to take the last remaining portion of your bath bomb mixture. Then, you will add Red Oxide and Tomato Red colorant to your mixture. So, add a small amount of the Red Oxide FUN Soap Colorant and a few drops of the Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant to this mixture. Of course, you will want to use some clean gloves to mix this colorant into your cosmetic ingredients. This way you won’t accidentally blend the previous color into this new mixture. 

Bacon Bath Bomb Recipe: Activate Your Bath Bomb Mixtures

Before you can add your mixtures to the bath bomb mold, you will need to activate each of your three mixture portions. So, grab one of the bowls of mixture and begin to lightly spritz the mixture with witch hazel. After a few spritzes with the witch hazel, you will want to use a gloved hand to mix the ingredients together. You will continue to mix and spray witch hazel until the mixture feels like crumbly dough in your hands. You will want to be careful not to over spray your mixture! Once you get the right consistency, you will repeat this process with the two remaining bowls of the bath bomb mixtures.

Bacon Bath Bomb Recipe: Begin Filling Your Bath Bomb Molds

Now, you are ready to begin filling up your bath bomb molds. For each of your bath bomb molds, you will need to use these three colors to create a layered bath bomb. We suggest that you use a specific order for the mixture colors. First, you will add a small amount of your darkest colored mixture to the mold. Next, you will add a small amount of the other colored mixture. Then, you will add some of the uncolored mixture to the mold. You will want to continue layering in this order until the bath bomb half is full. Of course, you will want to repeat this process with the remaining bath bomb mold halves until you run out of your mixture portions. 

Bacon Bath Bomb Recipe: Combining the Bath Bomb Halves

Once all of your bath bomb mold halves are filled you are ready to combine these bath bomb molds. So, take two of your filled bath bomb halves. Then, you will want to lightly spritz each of the halves. After you have sprayed each of the two halves with witch hazel, you will push the two halves together until the halves snap shut. Once the two halves are attached, you can set this bath bomb mold aside. So, you will want to repeat this process to put all the remaining halves together.

Bacon Bath Bomb Recipe: Letting Your Bath Bombs Set Up

Now your bath bombs are just about ready for you to use! However, you need to let your bath bombs completely set up before using your finished product. Depending on your climate, this could take anywhere from a day or two to week. Once your bath bomb has completely hardened, you are ready to use your finished product! Of course, you can remove your bacon bath bomb to use right away or package using your own supplies. Additionally, you can leave the cosmetic mixture in the bath bomb mold for easy packaging!
