Bubble Bar Scoops Recipe: Sanitize and Make Preparations

Before you start on creating this bath and body recipe, you will want to make a few preparations. First, you will want to gather and wash any equipment you are going to need to create your homemade bubble bars. Also, you will want to gather all of the equipment that are needed for you to create this cosmetic recipe. Next, you are going to want to clean up a space for you to use as a work area. You will want to clear off enough space for you to work comfortably. These simple preparations will make the process of making your bubble bar ice cream scoops easier and more fun!

Bubble Bar Scoops Recipe: Preparing the Dry IngredientsBubble Bar Scoops Recipe: Preparing the Dry Ingredients

The first thing that you are going to do for this bubble bath scoops recipe is prepare all of the dry cosmetic ingredients. So, you are going to need to get a medium mixing bowl that you will use to combine all of your dry ingredients. Then, you will be able to weigh out 205 grams of the SCI, 230 grams of the baking soda, 112 grams of the cream of tartar, and 36 grams of the corn starch. Then, you can add all of these wholesale cosmetic powders to your medium mixing bowl. You will need to use your gloved hands to thoroughly mix all of these cosmetic ingredients together. Also, you are going to want to use your gloved hands to break up any clumps that may be present in these powdered cosmetic ingredients.

Bubble Bar Scoops Recipe: Adding the Wet IngredientsBubble Bar Scoops Recipe: Adding the Wet Ingredients

Next, you are going to weigh out both of the cosmetic oils for this bath and body recipe. So, you are going to need to weigh out 100 grams of the vegetable glycerin and 10 grams of the fractionated coconut oil. After measuring these amounts you are going to add both of these cosmetic ingredients to the powder mixture. Again, you will use your gloved hands to mix these cosmetic ingredients together well. Once these cosmetic oils have been fully incorporated into the powder you can move on to the next step of the process.

Bubble Bar Scoops Recipe: Scenting the MixtureBubble Bar Scoops Recipe: Scenting the Mixture

Now, you are going to scent your cosmetic mixture. So, you are going to need to weigh out 7 grams of the NG CanCan Type Fragrance Oil. Then, you will use your gloved hands to incorporate the fragrance oil into the mixture. Adding this scented oil will provide you with an aroma of fresh mandarin that balances with hints of apple peel to open this feminine fragrance. Then, jasmine, violet and lily form a floral accord that balances with woodland fern and hints of berry at the heart of this scent. Finally, a sensual blend of cashmere musk, golden amber and vanilla bean creates a romantic sweetness that surrounds the floralcy. So, adding this lovely fragrance oil will provide a gorgeous feminine touch to this adorable bath and body recipe!

Bubble Bar Scoops Recipe: Dividing the MixtureBubble Bar Scoops Recipe: Dividing the Mixture

Then, you are going to divide your bubble bar dough mixture into three separate portions. Each of these three portions of the dough will be made into a different color for this cosmetic recipe. You will want to make sure that these three portions each have about the same amount of the dough mixture. Then, you need to roll each portion into a ball. After, you will want to place each balled up portion into its own bowl.

Bubble Bar Scoops Recipe: Prepare the White PortionBubble Bar Scoops Recipe: Prepare the White Portion

First, you are going to prepare the white portion of this bath recipe. This portion of the bath scoop is going to be white and uncolored. So, you can leave this portion of the dough without any of the cosmetic colorant. All you need to do for this portion is roll it into a ball. Then, you can place this ball of dough in a medium mixing bowl and set the bowl aside for you to use in a later step.

Bubble Bar Scoops Recipe: Prepare the Pink PortionBubble Bar Scoops Recipe: Prepare the Pink Portion

Second, you are going to prepare the pink portion for the bubble bar recipe. For this portion of the dough you are going to add 5 drops of the Neon Pink FUN soap Colorant and 6 drops of the Ultramarine Violet FUN Soap Colorant. You will need to use your gloved hands to mix in the colorant until you have an even color throughout the dough. Then, you are going to add in one teaspoon of the Diamond Dust Mica Pigment to your bath and body mixture. Again, you will need to use your gloved hands to incorporate the mica dust. Once everything is mixed together, you can roll the dough into a ball, place it in the bowl, and set it aside for the moment.

Bubble Bar Scoops Recipe: Prepare the Purple PortionBubble Bar Scoops Recipe: Prepare the Purple Portion

Lastly, you are going to prepare the purple portion for your bubble bar scoops. In this dough portion you are going to add 10 drops of the Ultramarine Violet FUN Soap Colorant and 1 drop of the Neon Pink FUN Soap Colorant. You will need to use clean gloved hands to mix the colorant fully into the dough. Once you have an even color throughout the dough, you are going to add in one teaspoon of the Diamond Dust Mica Pigment to this portion of the bath and body mixture. Again, you will use your gloved hands to incorporate the mica powder dust. Then, you will need to roll the dough into a ball and set it aside for now.

Bubble Bar Scoops Recipe: Combining the Three Colored Dough PortionsBubble Bar Scoops Recipe: Combining the Three Colored Dough Portions

Now you are going to need all three balls of dough. You will want to place them together into one mixing bowl. Of course, you will want to push these balls close together to prevent too much of a gap forming between the colors. So, you will want to sandwich the uncolored dough between the pink and purple dough. Then, you are going to press down on your three balled up portions. You will want to continue to flatten your dough until the top resembles a freshly opened container of Neapolitan ice cream. Once your colors have been flattened, you are ready to move on to the next step in the process.

Bubble Bar Scoops Recipe: Scooping the Bubble BarsBubble Bar Scoops Recipe: Scooping the Bubble Bars

Now that your bowl of bubble bar dough has been flattened out, you are ready to create your little ice cream scoops! Now you are going to want to use your ice cream scoop to create your bath recipe. You will want to start on one side of the bowl and move your way across the bowl through the other colors. Your goal should be to get a little bit of all three colors in a single scoop. While you are scooping the dough, you will need to pack the dough into the ice cream scoop a bit to make sure that the dough will hold its form. Once you have the dough packed, you are ready to release it from the ice cream scoop. As you create the bubble bar scoops, you will need to place each of them into a piece of parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. You will need to repeat scooping and placing on either your paper or mat until all of the bubble bar dough has been used up.

Bubble Bar Scoops Recipe: Letting the Scoops Set UpBubble Bar Scoops Recipe: Letting the Scoops Set Up

After you have created all of your bubble bar scoops, you will need to let your finished bath and body creations rest. At this point your bath bars are too soft to use and will need time to set up. Waiting for the bubble bar scoops to set up will take a few days. The exact amount of time depends on the humidity level in your area. For instance, it may be a bit longer for those living with high humidity levels. But you will be able to tell when your bubble bars have set up when they have hardened and are no longer cool to the touch.

Bubble Bar Scoops Recipe: Using Your Bubble Bar Scoops

Once your bubble bars have set up, they are ready to use! Of course, you can use them right away or you can use wholesale packaging supplies to save the bubble bars for later use or for a make your own bath products store. When you go to use your bath recipe it is very simple to do! First, you will want to take a couple of your ice cream scoops for your bath. Then, you will need to simply need to use your hand to crumble these adorable scoops under running bath water.

Bath Bomb Shapes

bath bomb shapesBath Bombs are typically known for traditionally being in a ball like shape.  But, the bath bomb shape does not have an effect on what bath bombs are known for.

The combination of baking soda and citric acid when in a dry environment are just that; baking soda and citric acid.  However, when these two elements are put together, and then placed into water a reaction occurs.  As this bicarbonate base and weak acid are dissolved in the water, they start to fizz and fizz and fizz.  This fizzing action is actually carbon dioxide.  As the bath bomb dissolves and the carbon dioxide releases into the water, any bather feels a light tickling sensation on their skin.  Hence the well known attribute that bath bombs are known for.

When it comes to the bath bomb shapes, the world can be your oyster.  There are already many varying elements that you can change to make your bath bombs unique.  Whether you choose to do this through scent, color, skin loving oil, or herb addition; the possibilities are endless.

Bath bomb shapes are just as limitless as the other unique qualities you can give your bath bombs.  In fact, you can even make your bath bomb mixture in loose scoop form allowing the overall design of your bath bomb package to really sell the concept.  As for shaped bath bombs, there are tons of molds you can use.

The creative team at Natures Garden has created various bath bomb recipes that produce bath bomb shapes other than balls.  Through the use of  silicone molds, ice cream scoopers, hard plastics (such as fillable ornaments), wax paper, and even your hands, these bath bomb recipes create truly unique bath bombs.

If you are interested in making some bath bomb shapes that will turn some heads here are a few recipes you can try.  These recipes as well as others can all be found on Natures Gardens website under the free recipes and classes link; which you can view by clicking on this link.  All of the supplies needed to make these bath bombs can also be purchased at Natures Garden.

Bath Fizzy Recipe

unique bath fizzy recipeRaspberry Zinger Bath Fizzies Recipe

This blog post is going to show you the step by step instruction to make your very own Raspberry Zinger Bath Fizzes.

Unlike the typical bath fizzy, this recipe does not require a mold.  Instead, you will be using a piece of wax paper to achieve the shape.

Another unique aspect to this recipe is the addition of shredded goats milk melt and pour soap.  In order for your raspberry zinger bath fizzy to truly have the appeal of the real tasty treat, the shredded soap is used to resemble coconut shavings.

Before we get started, there is another key point that should be noted.  For this specific recipe, timing is everything.  Through the creative teams various testing of this recipe, we were able to pinpoint an exact time line.  We found that if the roll does not sit wrapped long enough, the layers do not adhere to themselves.  After unwrapping the roll, you must allow it to be exposed to the air to harden slightly before slicing.  By slicing the roll too early, you will have bath fizzy slices that are prone to deep cracks and crumbly edges.  But, don’t worry, the exact timeline will be explained in the steps.

So, now that you have a little background on this project; let’s get started!

All of the ingredients listed below can be found at Natures Garden:
Raspberry Zinger Fragrance Oil 
GOAT’S MILK Melt and Pour SOAP
Baking Soda
Citric Acid 
Arrowroot Powder
Dead Sea Salt
COCONUT Oil-76
FUN Soap Colorant- Tomato Red 1 oz.
FUN Soap Colorant- Deep Purple 1 oz.
FUN Soap Colorant- Yellow Oxide 1 oz.

You will also need the following supplies:
Scale
Cheese Grater
Wax Paper
Distilled Water
Mixing Bowls (3)
Spatula
Disposable Plate

So now that you have everything that you need, here are the steps:

finely grate the white mp soap

Step 1:  Place your work gloves on.  Then, weigh out 55 grams of Goats Milk Melt and Pour Soap.  Take the soap chunks and finely grate them using a cheese grater.  Once all of the soap has been grated, place it on a disposable plate and set aside.

soft pliable mixture

Step 2:  Next, in one of your mixing bowls, weigh out and place the 300 grams of baking soda, 70 grams of arrowroot powder, and 32 grams of dead sea salt.  It this mixture, weigh out and add the 42 grams of coconut oil 76.  You want the coconut oil 76 to be at room temperature form.  Now, using your hands start to combine the mixture.  As you work the coconut oil among the dry ingredients, make sure to break up any chunks.  Keep combining until the mixture is very similar to a cookie dough or play dough, soft yet stays together.  Set aside.

drizzling

Step 3:  In one of your other mixing bowls, weigh out and place the 23 grams of distilled water and 2 grams of Raspberry Zinger fragrance oil.  Then, using a spatula, drizzle these wet ingredients over your other mixture.

bath fizzy mixture

Step 4:  With your hands, begin folding the mixture together. Once incorporated, weigh out and add the 150 grams of citric acid.  As you are mixing this in, break up any clumps.  Once again work the mixture until you have a cookie dough or play dough consistency.

preparing your layers

Step 5:  Breaking the Mixture Up:  In another mixing bowl, weigh out and place 95 grams of the bath fizzy mix.  To the emptied wet ingredients bowl, weigh out and add 200 grams of the bath fizzy mixture.  To this bowl, add 3 drops of Fun Soap Colorant Yellow Oxide.  Mix well to incorporate.  Once evenly colored, form the fizzy mixture into a ball.  In the remaining bowl, weigh out and place 1 gram of Fun Soap Colorant Tomato Red and 3 drops Fun Soap Colorant Deep Purple.  Once again using your hands incorporate.  When uniformly colored, form another ball with the mixture.

layering your zinger bath fizzy

Step 6:  Next, lay out a piece of wax paper.  Starting with the pink ball, flatten the mixture out into a rectangular shape.  Then, repeat the same action with the yellow ball.  Once the yellow fizzy mixture is flattened, carefully place the yellow layer on top of the pink one.  Finally, take the white fizzy mixture and sprinkle it through the center of the yellow layer.

wrapping your bath fizzy

Step 7:  For this step, you will be using the wax paper to roll the bath fizzy together.  As you are rolling the mixture, remember to keep removing the wax paper away from the mixture so it does not get wrapped into your bath fizzy.  Once you have the pink layer completely around the outside of the mixture, continue rolling to seal the fizzy mixture within the wax paper.  Allow this to set for 10 minutes.

placing the grated soap

Step 8:  After the bath fizzy has set for 10 minutes, carefully open the wax paper.  Next, with part of the wax paper laying out flat, sprinkle the grated soap onto the wax paper.  Once again in the same manner, roll the bath mixture making sure to move the wax paper as the mixture rolls.  This will allow the bath fizzy to adhere to the soap.  Continue rolling until the mixture is completely sealed in the wax paper again.  Allow to set for another 30 minutes.

expose your bath fizzy to air
Step 9:  
After 30 minutes, completely remove the bath fizzy from the wax paper.  Allow the fizzy to be exposed to the air for at least 1 hour now.

slicing your fizzy

Step 10:  Finally, use a knife to cut the slices.  Further allow the fizzies to harden and dry overnight.

That is it, your Raspberry Zinger Bath Fizzies are now ready to use.

Bath Bomb Tips

bath bomb tipsBath Bomb Tips

Recently, the creative team at Natures Garden has been working on various bath bomb/ bath fizzy recipes.  As with anything homemade it seems like there are endless possibilities.  Plus, it doesn’t hurt that Natures Garden carries over 800 fragrances, so it is totally viable to really achieve some super unique bath bomb concepts.

Needless to say, in our quest to discover new and interesting concepts within the realm of bath bombs; we stumbled upon amazing tips and interesting concepts.

For anyone that has never made a bath bomb, that oh so enjoyable fizz that the bath bomb gives off when added to water is produced by a reaction between the baking soda and the citric acid.  Once these two ingredients are met with water, fizzing ensues.

A bath bomb recipe broken down into percentages is largely dry ingredients, usually around 90-98%.  The other remaining 2-10% is liquids, whether that be distilled water, witch hazel,  skin loving oils or butters, colorants, fragrance; or a combination of them.  Depending on the amount of fizz that you are looking to attain in your bath bomb, the ratio of baking soda to citric acid is about 2 to 1.  That means that for every 454 grams of baking soda, you will add 227 grams of citric acid.

Generally, for our bath bomb recipes, we try to keep our dry ingredients around 95-98% of the total recipe.  This leaves a 2-5% liquid content.  We have found that this ratio does produce a drier bath bomb mixture to work with; but it also produces a bath bomb that is packed full of fizz.  When going this route, the key to remember is to spritz witch hazel into the ingredients only as needed to get the mixture to be a crumbly dough consistency.

When using a fillable ornament as a mold, spritzing both ends of the bath bomb with witch hazel before connecting allows just the right amount of reaction to occur in order to bind the two halves together.  There are also many bath bomb crafters that unmold their bath bombs and then spritz with witch hazel.  With this method, as the bath bomb dries, and the water portion of the witch hazel evaporates, a harder bath bomb is created.  This little tip comes in handy for both display ideas and shipping reasons.

As for when a bath bomb recipe calls for the addition of water, there is also a little trick of the trade that can be used.  Completing all of the bath bomb steps but withholding the addition of citric acid until the very end helps to reduce the amount of premature fizzing in the bowl.  The end result is still the same; a hard bath bomb.  However, since the citric acid is added after the liquids have already been introduced and incorporated into the mixture, only a very small amount of fizzy action occurs in the bowl; increasing that wonderful fizz for your bathtub.

 

For anyone that is interested in making bath bombs, or currently makes them; these little tricks do work.

Easter Egg Fizzies

steps for making easter egg bath fizzesEaster is quickly approaching, and although typically Easter gifts exchanged between loved ones are filled with chocolates and sweets; sometimes you just want to think outside of the candy wrapper.  This is where the entertaining bath bomb can come into play!

Bath fizzies can be enjoyed by everyone young and old!  But, there is just something about them that amazes children.  This is most likely the fun fizzing action that occurs when the bath bombs hit the water.

One of the most unique aspects of bath bombs is that they can be scented, colored, and molded into any shape.  And, one of the best things about bath bombs is that they are a great project to make with your kids for a fun family activity.

If you are looking for a great spin on Easter basket gifts, using this recipe you can now make your very own Easter Egg fizzies.

Besides the ingredients that are needed to make the Easter egg fizzies (which can all be purchased at Natures Garden), you will also need (10) regular sized fillable Easter eggs, baking soda, and some witch hazel in a spray bottle.  If you do not have any leftover plastic eggs from last year, these eggs can be purchased almost anywhere including Walmart or even your local Dollar Store.  The witch hazel that is called for in this recipe is used to help get the crumbly consistency of the mixture as well as to adhere both sides of the Easter eggs together in the final steps.

Here is the rest of the ingredients and supplies that you will need to make this recipe:
Citric Acid
Bentonite Clay Powder
Arrowroot Powder
Castor Oil
Olive Oil- Pomace
For this project, any body safe fragrance oil will work.  We suggest: Jelly Bean Fragrance Oil to match the theme of Easter.
For the color of the Easter egg fizzes, any of the FUN Soap colorants will work.  For this project, we selected the colorants: Neon Blue, Neon Red, Neon Yellow, and Ultramarine Violet to achieve somewhat of a pastel color in the eggs.
Disposable Pipettes
Mixing Bowls (5)
Large Mixing Bowl
Spoon

Once you are ready to get started, here are the steps (pictures included):

Step 1: In your large mixing bowl, place 184 grams of citric acid, 265 grams of baking soda, 11 grams of bentonite clay, and 90 grams of arrowroot powder.  Thoroughly mix these ingredients.  If you have any clumps, break them up using your fingers and thumb.  Set this aside for now.

Step 2: Now, in a separate bowl, weigh out 26 grams of castor oil and 21 grams of olive oil.  Then, carefully pour this over your dry ingredients, mixing well with your hands.

Step 3: Next, place 30 drops of Jelly Beans scent into the mixture using a pipette.  Stir this again using your hands.

Step 4:  Now, slowly spray the mixture with a few squirts of witch hazel.  Mix the mixture between each spritz.  Continue until the mixture is like crumbly dough in your hands.  Do not over spray.

Step 5: Now, lay out your other 4 mixing bowls.  Into each bowl place approximately 150 grams of the mixture.

Step 6: In the first bowl place 4 drops FUN Soap Colorant Neon Blue.  Mix this thoroughly with your hands until all of the mixture is light blue.  Then, set it aside.

Step 7: In the second bowl place 6 drops FUN Soap Colorant Neon Red.  Mix this thoroughly with your hands until all of the mixture is pink.  Then, set it aside.

Step 8: In the third bowl place 4 drops FUN Soap Colorant Neon Yellow.  Mix this thoroughly with your hands until all of the mixture is yellow.  Then, set it aside.

Step 9: In the final bowl place 5 drops FUN Soap Colorant Ultramarine Violet.  Mix this thoroughly with your hands until all of the mixture is light purple.  Then, set it aside.

Step 10:  Now, count out 10 of your fillable Easter eggs.  If the eggs halves that you have are connected together by a small piece of plastic, break them apart now.

prepping your bath fizzy mold

Step 11:  Each colored bowl of the mixture will fill (2.5) whole eggs.  To fill the eggs, press the mixture down firmly into each egg half.  Once both of the halves are completely filled, spritz each one with witch hazel.  Then,  close the egg.  Repeat this step until all eggs are filled and sealed together.

prepping easter bath fizzy

Step 12: Once all eggs are sealed, allow them to harden overnight.

allowing your easter egg fizzes to harden

Step 13: When the eggs are ready, using a spoon gently tap several times on the outside of the oblong egg half.  This will help release the bath fizzy from the mold.

Step 14:  Carefully slide the plastic egg (oblong side) off first.  Then, slide the bottom portion of the plastic egg off.  If the bath fizzy egg is not  stuck together, spritz each half with the witch hazel then place the two halves together.  Gently hold these two halves in place, and using your thumb, reinforce the seam of the egg halves until they do stick together.  Then set aside and allow to harden for about 15-20 minutes.

connecting your easter egg fizzes

The Easter egg bath fizzes are now ready for use.  If you want, place the fizzy eggs into an Easter basket and give as basket to give as an Easter gift.
