How Do You Make a Bubble Bar?How Do You Make A Bubble Bar?

If you love to take relaxing bubble baths, this blog is for you! Baths can be the best thing and just what you need after a  long day at work. If you are looking for some new products for your bath routine, we can definitely help you out. We at Natures Garden carry every ingredient you could possibly need to make all of the bath products you could ever want! We also come up with and share our own recipes that can be found on our website page. One of our biggest markets is for bath and body items. Therefore, we have endless recipes which cater specifically to that. There are bath bomb recipes, bath salts recipes, body scrub recipes, lotions, make up, and our topic in today’s blog, bubble bar recipes.

The market is seriously growing out there with people who want to make their own cosmetics and stuff to use in the bath. With the ingredients that we sell, the recipes we have shared, and the classes that we offer, it is entirely possible. In this blog, we are going to be answering a popular question: How Do You Make A Bubble Bar? These are great to use in the bath, they are amazing for the skin, and are simple to make. Even if you are a beginner to this industry or you just want to try something new, you can create bubble bars too!

Wet Ingredients in a Bubble Bar

Similarly to bath bombs, there are quite a bit of ingredients that are needed to make bubble bars. When making this type of recipe, we find it helpful to split the ingredients up. We like to do this by separating everything we need into the wet ingredients and the dry ingredients. The wet portion of most bubble bar recipes will usually include vegetable glycerin, any colorants used, and some fragrance oil. Before adding in fragrance oil, not just to bubble bars, but with any home made body product, one thing is super important to remember. You should always ensure that the fragrance oil you are using is body safe and can be used in your products. There are some that unfortunately can not be used to make products like body scrubs, body lotions, body wash, etc. due to some elements in them. To find out whether or not they are, you should always perform your own testing with something like this. Trusting what some companies advertise and claim about their merchandise may not always be a good idea.

Vegetable glycerin gets added to bubble bars because it is a humectant, which means it draws moisture to the surfaces of the skin. This is desirable in any bath product. We add different dyes to these as well to give them some color. Natures Garden has a ton of soap colorants, including Neon Pink, Ultramarine Blue, and Yellow Oxide. The last wet ingredient added into bubble bars is the fragrance oil. Out of the more than 800 fragrance oils that we carry, only 29 of them are not safe to be used in body products.

Dry Ingredients in a Bubble Bar

Now, we will talk about the dry ingredients. Most bubble bar recipes use the same common dry powders. Depending on the specific recipe, some of these can be swapped out with another powder, or be completely left out. The dry ingredients include baking soda, cream of tartar, corn starch, xanthum gum, and the surfactant that you choose to use. We will explain more about what surfactants are in a little bit.

Baking soda is a common house held item that is commonly added to cosmetic recipes. This will add a couple of different elements to your bubble bars. It has some properties in it that cleanse and help to make your skin feel very soft. The cream of tartar acts as a stabilizer in bubble bars, which allows for all of the other ingredients to come together and adhere in a formula. It also helps to make them fluffy and airy.

Corn starch is another common ingredient that is added to cosmetic recipes. This is because it can relieve irritations to the skin and makes the skin feel great. When this is put in bubble bars and bath bombs, it helps to give softness and silkiness to the skin. Finally, there is xanthum gum. This is an all natural thickener that is often used in bath gel, bubble bath, and liquid soap. It thickens your cosmetic products and keeps them together. You might want to add some other dry ingredients to your cosmetic recipes as well. Natures Garden sells plenty of fresh herbs that we are always incorporating into different products. You could also add extra powders, such as vanilla or cocoa.

SLSA vs. SCI

The last dry ingredient that you will need to make a bubble bar is a surfactant. At Natures Garden, we carry a couple of surface acting agents, which are commonly known as surfactants. These help bath products like bath bombs and bubble bars to create bubbles and foam when they react with the water in the bath. The ones that we have are Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate (SLSA) and Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (SCI). SLSA is derived naturally, it is gentle, and can be used on all types of skin. This surfactant works nicely for people who have sensitive skin and skin conditions including eczema, psoriasis, and chronic acne problems. People with dry skin also really enjoy this in their products because it can help make their skin feel hydrated. SLSA can be added into multiple cosmetic recipes, and when it is, it helps create amazing lather and foam, which softens the skin. SCI is also very gentle and creates great foam too. It helps cleanse the skin and will make your skin feel silky, softened, and smooth.

One of the classes that we have uploaded to our website is called Surfactants in Cosmetics. This is a very helpful tool that can be easily referred to when you need some information. If you are a beginner, you might like to take a look at this since it goes into much more detail about surfactants. It mentions different types, such as anionic, amphoteric, cationic, and nonionic. This class also includes a list of some of the more common surfactants used, offering nearly 20 of them to choose from.

Bubble Bar Safety Gear

If you are learning how to make a bubble bar, there are a few important things to keep in mind. Another thing we want to mention is to wear safety gear when preparing bubble bars. This is mostly only necessary when preparing the dry ingredients. When working with dry powders, especially when it is multiple, a lot of that can get released into the air.

First, we suggest wearing a safety face mask. This will prevent the loose powders that flow into the air from getting in your face. Along with this, safety goggles might be a good option to wear. They can prevent the loose powders, like baking soda, from wafting into your eyes. Putting on gloves is great too because you will be working with your hands to mix the ingredients together. Wearing an apron is also a good idea for recipes like this one.

Benefits of Bubble Bars

There are elements of bubble bars that people tend to really enjoy. The surface acting agents certainly contribute to these benefits. Most people who like to take baths also like them to have a lot of bubbles. Due to ingredients like SLSA, SCI, SLS, etc., your bubble baths will never be the same! These create a ton of lather, they have great foaming qualities, and they are beneficial for the skin. As we mentioned, one reason these are added into bubble bars is to make your skin feel amazing. Soft, silky skin is a feeling that cannot be beat. Another great thing about them is that you can create any shape you want. As long as you have a mold for it, your bubble bars could be shaped like candy, donuts, hearts, four leaf clovers, and more!

How Bubble Bars Are Different Than Bath Bombs

A common question that we receive from customers and beginners is how are bubble bars different than bath bombs? One of the biggest differences between them is how they affect your bath. Traditional bath bombs are made with baking soda and citric acid. When these two are combined, they create a chemical reaction. This is what causes them to fizz up when they hit your bath water. All you have to do with bath bombs are plop them into the water and this will activate the chemical reaction.

Bubble bars on the other hand are created for a different purpose. As opposed to fizzing, they create a lot of lather and foam. This is perfectly ideal for a bubble bath. These cannot just be dropped in the bath water like bath bombs are, however. If they were just thrown in there, nothing would happen. When you are using bubble bars, they are meant to be run underneath the bath water and crumbled up into pieces. Your bath will automatically start bubbling up due to the surfactant that is a part of your recipe. Bath bombs do not create this type of foam that a lot of people are looking for. Therefore, bubble bars can be a great bath product alternative if this is what you have been wanting!

Natures Garden Bubble Bar Recipes

Now, we wanted to share some of the Natures Garden bubble bar recipes with you. These show three different ways that bubble bars can be made to look. They all serve the same purpose, but they have variety to them. The first one is our Pumpkin Roll Bubble Bar Recipe. We got our inspiration for this idea from the delicious dessert that is commonly made around the holidays. It uses a lot of the ingredients we have been talking about, such as SCI, baking soda, vegetable glycerin, soap colorants, and more. The link above lays out all of the steps to this recipe and make it easy to follow along with.

Another type that we created is our Watermelon Bubble Bar Recipe. This was a fun project to make because they look like mini ice cream scoops! These are awesome in a bubble bath. They create so much foam and truly make a difference in how your skin feels. You will love how soft and silky you will be feeling after taking a bath with these scoops! We have several other bath scoop recipes just like these up on our website as well. A third way that you can make bubble bars is shown with our Orange Juice Cake Bubble Bar Recipe. This is actually a brand new recipe that we came up with to resemble the dessert of orange juice cake. We made these using a bundt cake mold and drizzled melted soap on top to look like icing. These were also fun and simple to make!

Natural DIY Bubble Bath Bar Recipe

There are plenty of people in our industry who also enjoy making their own homemade bath projects. This article by Debra Maslowski shows how to make a natural DIY bubble bath bar. This is an interesting recipe to take a look at since she is explaining how bubble bars can be made without using a surfactant. Instead, she uses arrowroot powder, baking soda, citric acid, milk powder, cocoa butter, and a few other ingredients. The results from this recipe end up being super cute and they are just as easy to use as any other bubble bar. We hope that you enjoyed our blog today and learning all about how you can make your own bubble bars!

This specific bubble bar is going to add so many extra bubbles to your baths, which is why we love them. These bath scoops are made using quality cosmetic ingredients that are great for the skin, such as SLSA, vegetable glycerin, and jojoba oil. We will be going into a bit of detail about the new product, SLSA, how it can be used, and what sort of properties it is sure to add to your future recipes!

7 grams Sangria Punch Fragrance Oil
5 grams Vitamin E Oil
3 drops Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant

Ingredients Spotlight: SLSA

Before getting into the recipe, we wanted to give you some more information about some of the ingredients that we are going to be working with. The first one that we will be talking about is Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate, which can be abbreviated as SLSA. This is a new product that we recently brought to Natures Garden Wholesale Supplies. It is a surfactant that can be used as an alternative to other surfactants such as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) or Sodium Cocoyl Isentionate (SCI). These Sangria Scoopable Bubble Bars are one of the three different recipes we created to showcase this new product. When compared to other surfactants like these, SLSA provides a lot more of foaming and lathering qualities to different types of bath and body products. It is most commonly added to recipes like bubble bars, bath bombs, bubble baths, and also body and facial washes. Since it derives from coconut oil and palm oil, SLSA is very cleansing and moisturizing for the skin. We are excited for you all to try this new ingredient out in your upcoming recipes!

We will be sharing all three of the recipes that we made using SLSA for, all in separate blogs. The other ones are a sangria body scrub, pink sangria soap, and sangria bath bombs. We hope that you will enjoy working with this new surfactant as much as we did.

Ingredients Spotlight: Jojoba OilIngredients Spotlight: Jojoba Oil

The next ingredient that we want to tell you about is Jojoba oil. It is used in countless types of recipes, including cold process soap, lip balm, lip stick, emulsified scrubs, and bath bombs. This oil is extremely versatile because of the positive benefits it brings to different body products and cosmetic formulations. Jojoba oil has anti inflammatory and moisturizing properties in it that reduce redness, dry skin, and other sensitive skin conditions such as eczema and rosacea. There are a lot of benefits to using it, it is an easy oil to work with, as well as to create recipes with. In addition to this one, we have used it in an Activated Charcoal Scrub, a Honey Vanilla Lip Balm, and our Sandalwood Bath Bomb. Each of these is cleansing, moisturizing, and will make you and your skin feel nice and rejuvenated!

Ingredients Spotlight: Sangria Punch Fragrance OilIngredients Spotlight: Sangria Punch Fragrance Oil

Lastly, we wanted to talk about the fragrance oil that we are incorporating and highlighting in today’s recipe. We call this Sangria Punch, which is actually one of the many Natures Garden original fragrance oils. Sangria punch fragrance oil is a complex scent, starting with very fruity top notes that to us, truly resemble a homemade sangria. There are hints of apple, lemon, lime, orange and grape. Following that are the scents of blackberries and pomegranate, which really compliment one another. These fruity notes sit on a base of sugar. We think that this fragrance definitely captures the smell of real sangria and makes for a great scent to add to girly bath product recipes. We have used this fragrance oil in four products that we have made using. Once again, the other craft recipes we created are the Pink Sangria Soap Recipe, Sangria Bath Bombs Recipe, and the Sparkling Sangria Body Scrub Recipe.

Before we get started, it is important to clean and sanitize your work area and all of your packaging materials. It is suggested that you wear gloves, an apron, gloves, a face mask, and a hair net while preparing this recipe.

Mixing the Dry IngredientsMixing the Dry Ingredients

For the first part of this recipe, we will be preparing the dry portion of our ingredients. You will want to get out a regular mixing bowl that is only used for soap making, candle making, etc. Then, you can take out your scale and weigh out the 205 grams of Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate we will need. Add it to your mixing bowl. Next, we will measure out and add to the same bowl 230 grams of Baking Soda, 112 grams of Cream of Tartar, and 36 grams of Corn Starch. The powders from these can really kick up in the air, so make sure that you are wearing a mask. Mix each of these ingredients together until the dry mixture is smooth. We find it easier to break up all of the clumps in the mixture when we use our hands instead of using a spoon or a spatula.

Making the Liquid PortionMaking the Liquid Portion

Next, take out a second mixing bowl. Get the scale out once again and weigh out all of the liquid ingredients for this recipe. First, weigh out 100 grams of the vegetable glycerin. Then, measure out and add to the same bowl 12 grams of jojoba oil, 5 grams of vitamin E oil, and 7 grams of the Sangria Punch Fragrance Oil. Blend them all together seamlessly. The vegetable glycerin, jojoba oil, and vitamin E oil all provide benefits for the skin, which make them perfect for this and other bubble bar recipes. Vegetable glycerin gives you moisturized and resilient skin, and jojoba oil and vitamin E oil will reduce skin irritation, moisturize, as well as minimize the appearance of scars and wrinkles.

Combining the Liquid Ingredients and the Dry IngredientsCombining the Liquid Ingredients and the Dry Ingredients

Then, pour your wet ingredients into the mixing bowl that contains the dry ingredients. Our next step is to create the fun pink color for these sangria bubble bars. You are going to add three drops of the tomato red FUN Soap Colorant. This small amount will give you the light pink color that we are looking for and which you can see in the recipe picture. Add more of the colorant if you prefer a more deeper pink shade or red shade for your bubble scoops. Using your hands, mix all of the ingredients together. Once mixed thoroughly, it will morph into the consistency of dough.

Rolling the DoughRolling the Dough

Once your wet and dry ingredients have been mixed together to form the dough. We used our hands to squeeze the dough and form it into a big ball. Keep on repeating the process of squeezing and rolling until you are sure the pink color is visible everywhere and there are no uncolored white parts left. Doing this will make the next step easier, when we pack the dough and create the actual bubble bar scoops.

Packing and Scooping the Dough Onto the MatPacking and Scooping the Dough Onto the Mat

Now, we get to do the fun part of the recipe! Make sure to have your flexible silicone mat ready for this step. The dough should already be in your mixing bowl. Using your hands, start by pressing down and packing the bubble bar dough tightly in the mixing bowl. This is going to make it easier when using the ice cream scoop. Now that the dough is ready to be scooped, use your stainless steel ice cream scoop to form the bubble bars. As you scoop, place each of them on your flexible silicone mat. This is the easiest place for them to have the time they need to set up without getting in the way of other projects.

Finishing the Sangria Scoopable Bubble BarsFinishing the Sangria Scoopable Bubble Bars

To finish off the bubble bar scoops, take out the diamond dust mica pigment. Sprinkle it all over your bubble bars to decorate them a little bit. We love working both with the 24K gold mica pigment and the diamond dust mica pigment because when a little glitter is added, projects come to life! Finally, set the silicone mat aside on a countertop to allow your sangria sparkle bubble bars to set up. If completely undisturbed, they should harden enough and be fully set up after 24-48 hours.

Once they have finished setting up, your sangria scoopable bubble bars are ready to add to the bath! When you are ready to use them, simply run a couple of the scoops under the bath water. They will start bubbling and fizzing right away, which will give you a wonderful bubble bath. If you enjoyed making these bubble scoops, we have plenty of other bubble bars and bubble scoop recipes that you can check out. The pumpkin roll bubble bar and blackberry bling bling bubble scoops are some of my favorites! After you have finished making this recipe, we would love to hear your thoughts on working with SLSA and how you think it compares to SLS or SCI. We love the extra bubbles that these scoops created in comparison to some other types we created. You can reach out to us on Facebook at Natures Garden as well as Twitter and Instagram @ngscents!

Homemade Winter Sangria Recipe

Before you go, we wanted to share a recipe with you for homemade sangria! This is a recipe that was adapted for the winter season, specifically for the winter citrus season. Since we are right in the middle of the winter, we wanted to share this one. This recipe comes from the blog Julie’s Eats and Treats.

We at Natures Garden would like to share with you TEN homemade coffee related recipes that are perfect for all of the coffee lovers out there! Coffee is increasingly being incorporated as a part of the cosmetics and body product industries. These recipes we are going to share with you provide several fun ways to integrate coffee into your life because we think that you can never have too much coffee.

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!

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!

Hair Conditioner Recipe for BrunettesTen Coffee Craft Ideas Hair Conditioner Recipe for Brunettes

If you are looking for a new conditioner to use on your hair, this would be a great one to give a try! This recipe of ours is specifically designed for those women out there with luscious brunette locks. It is made using plenty of ingredients that help the conditioner to give your hair a soft texture. These include Vegetable Glycerin, Sesame Seed Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, and Vitamin E Oil. The Vegetable Glycerin is good for drawing out moisture in the skin. Some products that use it are shampoos, soap, lotion, toothpaste, and lip gloss. Sesame Seed Oil is rich both in vitamins and antioxidants, which help to make it a very conditioning oil. The texture and properties of this oil make it perfect for lotions, massage oils, scrubs, soaps, and lip gloss.

The Apricot Kernel Oil provides the same benefits, as it is also conditioning and luxurious. Vitamin E Oil is often used in cosmetic products to prevent oils from oxidizing. Using this will ensure that your creations do not begin to turn brown or discolor, as well as preventing a rancid smell from developing. Lastly, Optiphen is a preservative that kills germs to ensure that cosmetic products are clean and safe to use. The ingredients help the finished formulas to feel exceptional. This hair conditioner recipe combines each of these ingredients along with our Jamaican vanilla cafe fragrance oil. A true coffee scent is delivered through the hints of sweet vanilla beans, richly roasted Jamaican coffee, and the infusion of real coffee.

There are many reasons why fall is a wonderful season, and I’m going to outline some here. For one, it’s pumpkin season, and you can use pumpkins to decorate almost any nook and cranny of your home. Also, carving jack-o-lanterns is a great family friendly activity for anyone to do. Clothing can also appear way more comfy to most people because sweaters and joggers are normally very comfy to wear around. You also get the chance to decorate all around your home and dress up for Halloween. Fall always gives someone the chance to show off the best of their creative side. There’s also something relaxing about listening to the sound of fallen leaves snap under your footsteps as you walk outside. On top of leaves, walking around through corn mazes and pumpkin patches is always an entertaining activity anyone would enjoy doing.

Now that all three of your cosmetic mixtures are prepared, you will be ready to begin filling your silicone cosmetic mold. So, you will need to retrieve your six cavity star silicone soap mold. Since the mold only holds six you can use multiple molds or reuse the same one.

In order to fill your wholesale soap mold, you are going to want to add a small amount of the different colors to each cavity. Every time you add a small amount of one colorant, you are going to want to press down hard to ensure that the mold is packed in tightly. You will need to continue to use this method to fill in the cavities in the cosmetic mold. After you have all of the silicone soap mold filled, you are ready to move on to the next step in the process.

Allow the Star Fruit Mango Bubble Bars to Set UpAllow the Star Fruit Mango Bubble Bars to Set Up

In total, you will end up with fourteen individual bubble bars.

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.

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.

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.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Preparing Supplies and Work

Before you begin creating your colorful bubble bar you are going to want to prepare a few things. First, you should make sure that your work space is clear and clean. This will ensure that you have plenty of room to work. Also, you should have all your equipment is clean and ready to use. Just a simple wash will help to prevent dust or dirt from getting into your recipe. Further, it may help to have all of your equipment and supplies nearby. This will make it easier to create your craft, as you won’t have to go far to find what you need.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Combining the Dry Ingredients Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Combining the Dry Ingredients

First, you are going to need to measure all of the dry ingredients for this recipe. You will need a large mixing bowl and a gram scale. Then, weigh 460 grams of baking soda, 410 grams of sodium cocoyl isethionate, 224 grams cream of tartar, and 72 grams of corn starch. After all your ingredients have been added you will need to mix it all together. Also, you should try to break up any clumps.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing the Wet IngredientsRainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing the Wet Ingredients

Next, you are going to combine all of the wet ingredients for this bubble bars. You will need to add these to your large mixing bowl with the dry ingredients. You can either weigh these ingredients into a separate bowl first or weigh everything directly into the mixing bowl. So, you will need to add 200 grams of the vegetable glycerin, 24 grams of the safflower oil, and 14 grams of the Rain Fragrance Oil to the mixture.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Mixing Everything TogetherRainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Mixing Everything Together

Now that both wet and dry ingredients are included, you can begin mixing your dough. You will need to make sure that you break up any clumps and continue until you have the right consistency. If you don’t get a doughy consistency after mixing everything together well, then you can add a bit more vegetable glycerin. You can tell that you need more when the dough is crumbly. However, you want to be careful not to add too much, as it will not set up properly when it is too wet.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Separating the Bubble Bar Dough

After everything has been mixed together you are going to separate the batch into five equal portions. You can eyeball the amounts, but you should have about 280 grams of the dough in each of the five mixing bowls.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Making the Red Colored PortionRainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Making the Red Colored Portion

Now that your dough has been separated you can grab one of these portions to color. So, you will need to add 10 drops of the Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant along with 5 drops of the Neon Red FUN Soap Colorant. After both of these colorants have been added you will need to use your gloved hands to mix the color in evenly. After you have a bright red hue throughout this portion you can roll it into a ball and set it aside for now.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding Orange ColorantRainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding Orange Colorant

Next, we are going to create the orange portion of this recipe. So, grab one of the unused mixing bowls to add 10 drops of the Neon Orange FUN Soap Colorant. Then, you will need to use gloved hands to fully incorporate the soap colorant. After all the color is evenly distributed roll the dough into a ball and set this portion aside.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Creating the Yellow Portion

Now, we are going to mix up the yellow portion of this recipe. Grab one of the uncolored portions of the bubble bar. Then, you will need to add 5 drops of the Neon Yellow FUN Soap Colorant. You will need to mix the color into the batch until it is evenly distributed throughout the entire portion. Then, you can roll up the yellow dough and set it aside.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Making the Green PortionRainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Making the Green Portion

Then, we will need to mix the green portion of the batch. So, retrieve one of the two remaining uncolored portions. You need to add 5 drops of the Neon Green FUN Soap Colorant to the bowl. After you add your colorant to the batch, you will need to mix everything together. So, use your gloved hand to evenly disperse the color. Once you are finished, you can roll this into a ball and set it aside for now.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding the Purple Colorant Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding the Purple Colorant

Finally, we are going to create the purple portion of our bubble bar. So, grab your last uncolored portion of the recipe. You will add 5 drops of the Deep Purple FUN Soap Colorant. Now, mix the colorant into the batter using your gloved hands. Once the color is even in the dough you can roll it into a ball and set aside.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Getting Ready to Roll ColorsRainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Getting Ready to Roll Colors

Now that are the layers are colored we are going to need to get ready to roll everything. You will either need a silicone mat or a piece of parchment paper. Next, lightly dust the mat or paper with some baking soda. This will help keep your bubble bar from sticking as you pick up and roll the layers.  You also should dust your rolling pin with baking soda so the dough doesn’t stick to that either.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Rolling Out the First Layer Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Rolling Out the First Layer

Just like a real rainbow, we are going to have the red on the outside. So, grab your ball of red dough from its bowl. You can set this dough ball in the center of your sheet or mat. Then, roll the ball into a flat, rectangle shape.  Also, make sure that you leave this layer about a quarter inch thick. Remember that as you add more layers this initial layer will continue to get thinner.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Laying Down the Orange LayerRainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Laying Down the Orange Layer

Next, we are going to add the orange layer to the bubble bar. So, take your rolled up orange ball of dough. Place this orange ball right on top of the previous layer. Roll the orange layer to match the shape of the red layer. You don’t need to be exact, but make sure that you have a similar shape and are near the edges.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Rolling the Yellow Layer Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Rolling the Yellow Layer

Now, you are going to create the yellow layer of your bubble bar. You will need to take the rolled up yellow portion and place it on the orange layer. As you can see, we didn’t have a rolling pin available and got creative. You can use a rolling pin effectively, but we used our 16 oz bottle of Safflower Oil to roll our dough. Either way, you will need to roll the yellow similarly to the previous layers.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Rolling the Green Layer

Then, you will be ready to create the green layer for your bubble bar recipe. You will need to take the green ball of dough and add it to the center of your yellow layer. Now, you will need to roll out this green layer until it is about the same shape and nearly at the edges.

 

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Creating the Final Layer

Finally, you are going to add your purple layer to your bubble bar. So, place your ball of purple to the center of the previous layer. You will need to roll out this layer similarly to the other layers. While blue would’ve gone between the green and purple layers, we were worried about adding too many layers. Since every added layer will make the layers beneath it thinner, we didn’t want stretch the layers too thin. If you would like you can try to include this layer, but you are going to need to be super careful with rolling your layers.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Wrapping Up the Bubble BarRainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Wrapping Up the Bubble Bar

Now that all your layers are added, you are ready to roll them into a loaf. So, turn your layers so that the mat or paper is vertical. Then, take the edge that is closest to you and slowly roll the dough the same way that you would wrap up a jelly roll. Be careful to roll the dough evenly as you go to make sure that it is lined up.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Slicing Your Finished ProductRainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Slicing Your Finished Product

Lastly, you will need to slice your bubble bar loaf into individual bars. You will want each one to be somewhere between 1 and 2 inches thick. So, you should end up with about 8 slices. But this can vary slightly depending on the thickness of your slices. After all of your loaf has been sliced you will need to let the bubble bars set up. Simply separate the slices a bit and let them sit in one place for some time. This process can take between 48 and 72 hours. This time will vary based on your climate, but you will be able to tell that your batch has completely set up because they will become hard.

Once your bubble bars have set up they will be ready to use! All you have to do is crumble one under some warm, running bath water. Then, you will be all set for a fun rainbow bath.

Rainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Find A Rainbow DayRainbow Bubble Bar Recipe: Find A Rainbow Day

According to the National Day Calendar, National Find A Rainbow Day is on April 3rd every year.  Even though I am always so happy to find a bright, beautiful rainbow up in the sky, I didn’t know there was a national day for finding them. They are such a beautiful sight with all the lovely colors and grandness of the size. So, I hope I can find one this year. But, even if we can’t find one this year at least we will still have this bubbly rainbow recipe!

Now, you are going to weigh your wet ingredients. You can do this part of the recipe one of two ways.

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.

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

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.

First, let’s look at bath bombs, also known as bath fizzies.  I am sure you have looked at videos of bath bombs fizzy and creating beautiful colors and designs in bath water.  Well, do you ever wonder why they fizz?  A basic bath bomb is created by combining citric acid with baking soda.  Now, once that combination is placed in water, a chemical reaction is produced.  The product of that chemical reaction is carbon dioxide.  The carbon dioxide is what causes all that fizzing.

Bath Bombs:  How Are They Made?

Creating a very basic bath bomb is quite simple.  You simply mix baking soda and citric acid together.  Once you have mixed your ingredients together, you will begin to lightly mist the mixture with witch hazel.  Witch hazel basically causes the ingredients to slightly react, in the same way water would.  Then, the powders in your mixture are able to attach to each other, thus they can be put in a mold, and once setup, your bath bomb is ready to use.

Although that is all it really takes to create a bath fizzy, you can make it more interesting and beneficial.  Some will add oil to give their skin a little extra love.  Cosmetic clays can also be added to harden the bath bombs and provide your skin with extra nourishment.  The sky really is the limit from micas to herbs, and foaming agents to corn starch.  Of course, bath bombs can also be scented and colored.

Bath Bombs:  How Are They Colored?

We are often asked by clients, how they should color their bath bombs.  Since we carry several types of colorants, it can be a little confusing.  There really are a few ways you could color your bath bombs.  First, you could use Da Bomb Soap Dyes.  These are simply FD&C dyes.  Yes, they will work, BUT since they are water based, they will cause your bath fizzies a slightly activate.  I highly recommend the FUN Soap Colorants.  The FUN Soap Colorants are pigments dispersed in vegetable glycerin.  They stay vibrant and true to color.  They are my personal choice for coloring bath bombs.  However, you can also use natural herbal colorants.

To add color to your bath bombs, simply add the colorant right to your powdered mixture.  Then, use your hands to mix the ingredients together.  It can take quite a bit of mixing to get the colorant fully dispersed.  Of course,  I would highly recommend wearing gloves.  When using multiple colors, you would want to wear clean gloves for each color that you are mixing.

Bath Bombs:  How Are They Scented?

Bath bombs can be scented very easily.  They can be scented with either body safe essential oils or fragrance oils.  As far as the amount of fragrance oil or essential oil to use in a bath bomb, generally our maximum recommendation for fragrance oil is 5% in a body product, but when creating a bath bomb, we tend to use around 1%-3%.  Ultimately though, you don’t want to use any more than 10% total liquids in your bath bomb recipe.

Bath Bombs:  What Kind of Mold Should I Use?

As far as molds and shapes, you really have numerous options.  You can mold them in a round acrylic molds, place them in silicone molds, place them in a jar, or even scoop them!  In fact, bath bombs can even be formed with your hands, just like you would pack a snow ball.

Bath Bombs:  A Few Bath Bomb Tutorials

Below, I will give links to a few bath bomb tutorials.  I will link you to one of each type so, whether you want to mold them, hand sculpt them, scoop them, place them in a jar, or add a little foam, you will find something below.

A Few Bath Bomb Tutorials: Sphere Bath Bombs

First, we will talk about traditional round sphere bath bombs.  To the left, you will see our Sinus Relief Bath Bomb Recipe.  I chose this recipe because, not only does it use peppermint powder as a natural colorant, it also incorporates bentonite clay powder and cut and sifted spearmint leaves.  Finally, it is scented with Natures Garden’s Sinus Relief Fragrance Oil.

A Few Bath Bomb Tutorials: Hand Sculpted Bath Bombs

Now, let’s talk about hand sculpted bath bombs like our Camouflage Bath Bomb Recipe.  So, I know what you’re thinking.  That bath bomb looks round, why can I just use a mold.  Well, to get the army toy in there and the camo look, we needed to hand sculpt it.  You see, this bath bomb has an army toy inside that will come out when it is used.  In addition, we wanted to add camo colors.  So, the best way to create our bath bomb was to hand sculpt it.  Can you imagine, how much your kid would love this bath bomb with a toy that surprises him at bath time?

A Few Bath Bomb Tutorials: Silicone Mold Bath Bombs

Next, we have bath bombs that are placed in silicone molds.  Our Mother’s Day Bath Bomb Recipe is the perfect example.  This bath bomb not only uses a silicone mold, it also uses arrowroot powder and calendula flowers.  Lastly, we scented these bath bombs with Happy and Free Fragrance Oil.  The nice thing about a silicone mold is that it makes removing your finished product a breeze.  Just use caution when choosing your silicone mold.  If you choose one that has too much detail, it may not come through in your finished products very well.

A Few Bath Bomb Tutorials: Ice Cream Scoop Bath Bombs

This type of bath bomb breaks the mold, using an ice cream scoop to create our bath fizzies.  Simply, scoop the bath fizzy mixture just like you would real ice cream.  Give this Rainbow Sherbet Bath Fizzies Recipe a try!  This recipe uses our FUN Soap Colorants for a vibrant rainbow sherbet color!  But, it doesn’t stop there, it’s also scented with Natures Garden’s Rainbow Sherbet Fragrance Oil.

A Few Bath Bomb Tutorials: Bath Bombs That Foam

Now, let’s talk about a sort of bath bomb/bubble bar combo.  Ok, so while it isn’t really a combo in terms of creating a full bubble bath, it will produce a little bit of foam.  The foam is created by the addition of a foaming agent such as SLS, SLSA, or SCI.  Take, for example, our Foaming Rose Petal Bath Bomb recipe.  This rose petal bath bomb contains SCI, so, not only will it fizz, it will also foam.  In addition, SCI, or Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate is a gentle surfactant.  It will leave your skin feeling soft and silky smooth.

Finally, bath fizzies can also be placed in a jar.  Then, you can simply place a few spoonfuls of the mixture into your bath water.  However, the mixture can also be placed in a disposable tea bag so you can add herbs without them getting in the tub and going down the drain.  For example, our Fairy Dust Bath Fizzy Recipe will show you how to do just that!  In addition, we added some diamond dust mica pigment to give the fizzy some sparkle and shine!

Bath Bombs vs Bubble Bars: Bubble Bars

Next, let’s look at bubble bars.  While bubble bars are not quite as popular as bath bombs, they are quickly gaining in popularity.  This leaves many people wondering exactly what they are.  While bath bombs fizz, bubble bars produce a ton of bubbles for a relaxing bubble bath.

Bubble Bars:  Why Do They Bubble?

Bubble bars are perfect when you are looking for the ultimate bubble bath.  But, why do they bubble?  The main reason is due to surfactants that are added to bubble bars.  For more information on surfactants, and to read our free class, click here.  Bubble bars contain ingredients such as Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate or Sodium Lauryl Sulfate.  These ingredients are foaming agents that produce the bubbles in your bath tub.  My personal favorite surfactant is sodium cocoyl isethionate or SCI.

Bubble Bars:  How Are They Made?

A bubble bar’s bubbles are created with a foaming agent, such as SLS or SCI.  However, there are several other ingredients used as well.  First, baking soda, corn starch, and cream of tartar are the powdered base of a bubble bar.  In addition, vegetable glycerin is added to moisten the ingredients, turning it into a dough.  Once a bubble bar is formed, no matter the shape or type, it will need time to harden.  It can take several days for the bubble bars to harden.  However, once they have hardened, they can be crumbled under warm running bath water and will create a bubble bath.  While it is a solid bar, it will create a bubble bath the same way a traditional liquid bubble bath would.

Bubble Bars:  How Are They Colored?

When coloring a bubble bar, you can use either our Da Bomb Soap Dyes or our FUN Soap Colorants.  Either one will work in a bubble bar.  Both will create a beautifully colored bubble bar.  In addition, you can add powdered herbs to naturally color your bubble bars.

Bubble Bars:  How Are They Scented?

Bubble bars can be scented with any of Natures Garden’s body safe fragrance oils.  We recommend using 1%-2% of the concentrated fragrance oil in your bubble bar recipe.

Bubble Bars:  How Do I Shape the Bubble Bars?

Bubble bars are formed, often times, into a rolled loaf, then, sliced like a loaf of bread.  However, they can also be hand formed into a variety of shapes.  You can create a unicorn horn, a rainbow, an animal, a flower, or even ice cream scoops.  The possibilities are endless.

Bubble Bars:  How Are They Used?

Bubble bars are very simple to use.  You simply crumble a bubble bar under warm running water.  Then, your bath tub will fill with bubbles.

Bubble Bars:  A Few Bubble Bar Tutorials

Below, we will talk about a few of the bubble bar recipes we have created.  We will talk about the scoopable bubble bars as well as one of our rolled bubble bars recipes.  These tutorials will give you step by step instruction on creating bubble bars.

A Few Bubble Bar Tutorials:  Scoopable Bubble Bars

First, one of our scooped bubble bar recipes.  The dough for these types of bubble bars are created just like any bubble bar.  Then, it is place in the mixing bowl.  Finally, it is scooped just like ice cream.  Then, the ice cream scoop bubble bars simply need time to setup before using them.  You can create our Galaxy Bubble Bars, pictured to the left, in this manner.

A Few Bubble Bar Tutorials: Rolled Bubble Bars

Now, we will talk about a rolled loaf bubble bar recipe.  This type of bubble bar is rolled out just like cookie dough.  You can create multiples layers simply placing rolled out layers directly on top of each other.  Then, you roll the bubble bar dough, in the same manner, you would roll up a pumpkin roll or a jelly roll.  Finally, you simply slice the rolled like just like you would a loaf of bread.  Once the bubble bar hardens, you can use a slice for your bubble bath.  To use your bubble bar, simply crumble a slice under your warm running bath water.

Hopefully, this helps to give you an understanding bath bombs vs bubble bars. Both have a wonderful and fun purpose but they are two different types of products.  If you are looking for even more bubble bar or bath bomb tutorials, click here.  You will find an array of recipes that you can create and use at home or for your business.
