Pink Sangria Soap RecipePink Sangria Soap Recipe

Fruity beverages always seem to bring an extra sense of brightness into anyone’s life. From the tart taste of lemon to the sweet juiciness of a plum, any kind of fruit can brighten anyone’s day. Nature’s Garden’s Pink Sangria Soap Recipe attempts to bring this same refreshing sensation into anyone’s household. This melt and pour soap recipe is easy for anyone to make. This recipe captures the fruity essence of cherries, oranges, raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries. Below, we mention how you can make your own soap at home that smells just like sangria.

What is Sangria?

The sangria is a drink that has originated from Spain. You can mix this drink using red wine and chopped fruit. Traditionally, you could find this drink served in clay pitchers. Now, you can commonly find sangria mixed into wine glasses. No one has been able to find the true origin of the drink, but it can be traced back to Spain, England, and Greece. The drink has been traced back to the 18th century to another similar drink called Sangaree. The Sangaree was a drink served in the Caribbeans and could be served either iced or hot. There are many different combinations that you can put into the Sangria which make it such a unique drink. Traditionally, this drink can be mixed with any fruit that the user desires to put in it. Some of the fruits that are commonly added include blueberries, strawberries, lemon, grapes, pineapple, and many others. Other additions to Sangria that aren’t unheard of are brandy, sparkling water, and liqueur.

Properties of Diamond Clear Melt and Pour SoapProperties of Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap

Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap is the soap of choice used in the Pink Sangria Soap Recipe. This soap contains a lot of unique properties, which make it the perfect fit for this recipe. This MP soap base has a translucent color to it that allows embeds to easily show when added to this soap. The shininess of the soap also makes for a nice glistening effect on your end product when you are done making it. For example, in this recipe, we used this soap because it allows the vibrancy of the fruit soap embeds to show the best. Another great property of this soap, as with any other melt and pour soap, is that it has a high moisturizing content. This soap contains 99.5% glycerin and deodorized distilled coconut oil.

Berries Mold 
Mini Cherries Mold 
Lemon/Lime Slices Mold 

 

Preparing the Orange Soap EmbedsPreparing the Orange Soap Embeds

The first fruit that will be included in our pink sangria soap is orange slices. So, we will start by creating these embeds. The first step is to melt 60 grams of the Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base. Thoroughly melt the soap in the microwave in 30-second intervals until it is a liquid state, stirring in between each 30-second burst. Once melted, add 4 drops of the Eye Poke Orange FUN Soap Colorant and 3 grams of the Sangria Fragrance Oil.  Stir to blend the ingredients together. Make sure that the orange color and the fragrance oil fully incorporate into the soap. Then, pour the orange soap into the orange slices mold.

Setting up the Orange Soap EmbedsSetting up the Orange Soap Embeds

After pouring the soap, spray it with rubbing alcohol to release any air bubbles. You want to allow adequate time for the soap to setup in the mold. Once the soap sets up, remove the embeds from the mold. Finally, you can set the orange slice embeds aside. They will be used in a later step.

 

 

 

Preparing and Setting up the Soap Cherry EmbedsPreparing and Setting up the Soap Cherry Embeds

The next fruit that goes into a sangria is cherries. So, the next embeds we need to create are the cherry soaps. To start off, you want to melt 30 grams of the Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap. Make sure that the soap is thoroughly melted. Melting the soap thoroughly will ensure that the cherry soap embeds are as smooth as possible. Once the soap has melted, add 3 drops of the tomato red FUN Soap Colorant and 1 gram of the Sangria Fragrance Oil. Stir the soap thoroughly to completely mix the red colorant and the fragrance oil.  Pour the red soap into the cherries mold and allow enough time to setup. When the soap appears completely hard, remove it from the mold. 

Preparing and Setting up the Blackberry Soap EmbedsPreparing and Setting up the Blackberry Soap Embeds

The next fruit that goes into a sangria is blackberries. So, the next soap embeds we will be making for the Pink Sangria Soap Recipe are the blackberries. To start out, weigh out and melt 150 grams of Natures Garden’s Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base. Completely melt the soap base before moving on. To the melted soap, you want to add 11 drops of the Ultramarine Violet, 2 drops of the Black Oxide FUN Soap Colorant, and 7 grams of the Sangria Fragrance Oil. Stir the colors thoroughly into the soap until everything is thoroughly blended. Pour the dark purple melted soap into the berries mold. Set aside and allow adequate time for the soap embeds to completely setup. Once setup, remove them from the mold.

Preparing and Setting Up the Raspberry Soap EmbedsPreparing and Setting Up the Raspberry Soap Embeds

The next fruit that goes into a sangria is raspberries. Thus, the next soap embeds to make are the red raspberries. To start out, you want to weigh out and melt 150 grams of the Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base. Melt the soap base thoroughly before moving on. Next, add 2 drops of the Ultramarine Violet FUN Soap Colorant, 3 drops of the Neon Pink FUN Soap Colorant, 3 drops of the Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant, and 7 grams of the Sangria Fragrance Oil. Completely stir the soap until all of the colors have blended together. You want to see a solid, uniform red raspberry color when you are done. Also, make sure to completely mix in the fragrance oil as well. Then, pour the red soap into the berries mold. Allow adequate time for the soap to setup and solidify. Once setup, remove the raspberry embeds from the mold.

Preparing and Setting Up the Strawberry Soap EmbedsPreparing and Setting Up the Strawberry Soap Embeds

The final fruit that goes into a sangria is strawberries. Thus, we are now going to create the strawberry soap embeds.  Start out by melting 230 grams of the Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap. Since there is more soap base here, allow adequate time for this soap to melt completely. After the soap is completely melted, add 11 grams of the Sangria Fragrance Oil and 10 drops of the Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant.  Stir the soap completely to allow the red color to mix in, as well as the Sangria Punch Fragrance Oil. Pour the melted red soap into the strawberries mold. Since the strawberries are thicker than the previous fruits that were made, you want to allow more time for these to set up. When you are pulling the strawberry embeds out of the molds, ensure that their centers aren’t liquid anymore. When you are sure they are completely solid, remove the strawberries from the mold.

Preparing the Soap BasePreparing the Soap Base

Now that all of the fruit soap embeds are done, the last of the soap to melt is the filling of the loaf portion of the soap mold. This portion is what holds all of the fruit soap embeds in place in the soap and represents the pink sangria portion of the soap. To do this, first, weigh out and melt 1650 grams of the Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base. Once again, you will need to melt the soap in the microwave in 30-second intervals. Next, add one drop of the Da Bomb Soap Dye and 82 grams of the Sangria Fragrance Oil to the melted soap base. Stir the ingredients together to completely incorporate the soap dye and the fragrance oil.  We have used the Da Bomb Soap Dye from Natures Garden for this portion. This will allow the clear soap base to maintain a translucent appearance.

Pouring and Finishing the SoapPouring and Finishing the Soap

Get the loaf molds out. Take the fruit molds you made earlier, and add them to the loaf molds. Position the fruit in the molds so they are adequately spaced, and there is a variety in each loaf mold. Adding variety to each soap mold will ensure that they look as colorful as possible when they come out of the molds. Next, pour the soap base from the previous step into the loaf molds, over the fruit embeds. Fill the loaf molds to cover everything inside of it. If you choose, you can spray the soap with rubbing alcohol.  However, we wanted our soap to have a bubbly look so we chose not to spray this portion. Once the soap is completely setup, remove it from the molds. The last step is to slice your soap using the mitre box and mitre box cutter. Your Pink Sangria Soap Recipe is now ready to be used. You can use them in the bathroom, or in the kitchen, take your pick, We hope you enjoyed this melt and pour soap recipe!

Sangria is a delicious fruity drink that incorporates a bunch of different fruits. There are many other fruity, non-alcoholic cocktails that you can make too at home. My favorite drink out of this list is the Piña Colada. This tropical drink has a Spanish name that translates to Pineapple and Strained (the strains of coconut). Another refreshing drink in this list is the Bahama Mama. This drink is similar to the sangria in which it incorporates a lot of different fruits. The Bahama Mama uses grapefruit, grenadine, orange juice, and a lot of different fruits. Next time the weather gets really hot, try making one of these drinks and refresh yourself.

Watermelon Bubble Bars Recipe


This entry was posted in Bubble Bar Recipes, Fragrance Oils, Natures Garden, Soap making supplies and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

Watermelon Bubble Bars RecipeWatermelon Bubble Bars Recipe

We love using Natures Garden ingredients to play around with and create new and different recipes to share with you all. Today we are going to be highlighting a bath and body recipe that we recently made. It is our watermelon bubble bars recipe, that we made using quality cosmetic ingredients that are great for the skin. This combination of elements in the bubble bar scoops provide skin moisturizing properties both inside and outside of the bath. This is one of our many recipes that uses the surfactant Sodium Cocoyl Isentionate (SCI) as opposed to Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate (SLSA). We hope that you will feel the difference and enjoy making these adorable mini watermelon bubble bars.

Ingredients Found at Natures Garden:

Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (SCI)
Sodium Bicarbonate- Baking Soda
Cream of Tartar
Corn Starch
Poppy Seed Whole
Vitamin E Oil
Macadamia Nut Oil
Vegetable Glycerin
Sour Watermelon Candy Fragrance Oil
Kelly Green FUN Soap Colorant
Neon Green FUN Soap Colorant
Neon Pink FUN Soap Colorant 
Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant
Safety Gloves
Natures Garden Apron
Safety Mask
Safety Glasses
Flexible Silicone Mat

Other Ingredients and Equipment You Will Need:

Mixing Bowls
Mixing Spoon
Scale
Ice Cream Scoop

Total Recipe Amounts:

205 grams Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate
230 grams Sodium Bicarbonate- Baking Soda
112 grams Cream of Tartar
36 grams Corn Starch
100 grams Vegetable Glycerin
12 grams Macadamia Nut Oil
7 grams Sour Watermelon Candy Fragrance Oil
5 grams Vitamin E Oil
2 drops Kelly Green FUN Soap Colorant
10 drops Neon Green FUN Soap Colorant
10 drops Neon Pink FUN Soap Colorant
5 drops Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant

Before starting the watermelon bubble bar recipe, we like to remind you that it is important to clean and sanitize your work station area and all of the materials that you will be using. We always suggest that you wear gloves, an apron, safety glasses, a face mask, and a hair net when you are preparing these recipes. Natures Garden sells each one of these other than the hair net, and they are all linked above.

Weigh Out the Dry IngredientsWeigh Out the Dry Ingredients

First, we will prepare all of our dry ingredients. Get out a scale so that we can accurately measure everything out. You will also need a mixing bowl to combine them all together. The first thing we weighed out was 205 grams of the Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (SCI). Then, we measured 230 grams of the baking soda, 112 grams of the cream of tartar, and 36 grams of the corn starch. These ingredients should all be added into the same mixing bowl. 

SCI versus SLSA

For this watermelon bubble bar recipe we used Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, as you can tell from the list of ingredients. This is one type of surfactant that is often added to bath and body products such as bubble bars, bath bombs, and shampoo bars. There are a ton of recipes up on the website that use this ingredient. It helps to moisturize the skin, which is very beneficial to those who have dry skin. The properties in SCI are gentle and will leave your skin feeling nice and softened.

Another surfactant that is commonly used in bubble bars, bath bombs, shampoo bars, etc. is Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate. Although this will not leave your skin feeling as soft as products with SCI will, the lather and production of bubbles is much greater with SLSA. Both of these are great to use in these products and both provide great benefits to the skin.

Break Up Any Clumps in the MixtureBreak Up Any Clumps in the Mixture

Getting back into the steps of the recipe, we need to put gloves on if you have not already done so. With the gloves on, use your hands to break up any clumps in the dry powder mixture. The baking soda tends to contribute the most to this clumping. It is important to break any and all of these up in order to avoid having them in the finished product. Once all of the clumps are broken up and gone, go ahead and use your hands to mix the ingredients together seamlessly.

Adding the Liquid IngredientsAdding the Liquid Ingredients

Now, we are going to have to grab a separate mixing bowl. The wet ingredients will need to mixed individually before they can be combined with the dry ones. Using the scale once again, we need to accurately weigh out each of our liquid ingredients. First, we will measure out 100 grams of the vegetable glycerin. Then, we will add to that 12 grams of the macadamia nut oil, and 5 grams of the vitamin E oil. Mix all of them together.

We decided to use macadamia nut oil for its conditioning properties. We wanted these bubble bars to feel good on the skin and condition it, which is why this oil is perfect to use. This is an oil that is nourishing and moisturizing to the skin while avoiding making it feel oily. For this reason, it is often used to make lotion recipes, massage oil recipes, and hair care products such as conditioner. We also commonly use this in some of our cold process soap recipes as well, like our Peppered Poppy Seed and Strawberries and Champagne soaps. 

Incorporate the Sour Watermelon Candy Fragrance OilIncorporate the Sour Watermelon Candy Fragrance Oil

In the next step, we will weigh out and add the 7 grams of our Sour Watermelon Candy Fragrance Oil. The notes in this fragrance oil bring together a combination of pineapples, oranges, and juicy watermelon. Another project that we created using this same fragrance oil is the Sour Watermelon Sugar Scrub Cubes Recipe. These include oils that are great to add to skin care products like this one. After you have added the fragrance oil in, mix all of your liquid ingredients together again.

Combine the Liquid Ingredients with the Dry IngredientsCombining the Liquid Ingredients with the Dry Ingredients

In this step, you will need to take the mixing bowl that has the wet ingredients and combine it with the mixing bowl that has the dry ingredients. Add the liquids to the bowl containing the dry ones. Once again, using your hands to mix the ingredients together will work better than using other utensils. Then, you will need to take out two additional mixing bowls. Divide the dough you just formed into three equal portions. Put each one of these parts into separate bowls.

Adding in the Neon Pink ColorantAdding in the Neon Pink Colorant

For the next step, we can set the first bowl aside. We will be keeping this portion of the dough white, so it will not need any colorant added to it. Take the second bowl of dough and add to it 5 drops of the tomato red FUN soap colorant and 10 drops of the neon pink FUN soap colorant. 

Forming the Pink Ball of DoughForming the Pink Ball of Dough

Once it has been added, thoroughly mix in the colorants using your hands. Continue to mix until the dough is completely covered in the pink colorant. If you are unsatisfied with color, you can add in a few more drops. We added enough for it to be a pink shade. However, adding more of the tomato red color will make it look more like a true watermelon. Once you like how it looks, you can form the dough into a ball and roll it with your hands. Set the second bowl aside for a moment.

Adding in the Kelly Green and Neon Green ColorantsAdding in the Kelly Green and Neon Green Colorants

Now, you will need clean gloves. Take the third and final mixing bowl to create the green portion of your bubble bars. You will need to add 10 drops of the neon green FUN soap colorant and 2 drops of the Kelly green FUN soap colorant. 

Forming the Green Ball of DoughForming the Green Ball of Dough

When you have added in the green colorants, mix them thoroughly into the dough just as you did with the pink portion. Use your hands until there is no longer any white dough visible. Once again, if you would like the dough to be a darker shade of green, add more of the Kelly green, since it is the darker of the two green colorants. When you are satisfied with the color, form it into a green ball.

Combine the Three Mixtures TogetherCombine the Three Mixtures Together

Then, you can pack the three mixtures of the bubble bar dough into the same mixing bowl. We will explain the way that we laid it in the bowl. First, place the white portion in the center. Put the pink portion on one side of the white dough, and the green portion on the other side of the white dough. It does not matter which one of them is on the left or right of the white. Use your hands to press down on each of the balls of dough. Press each of them tightly into the bowl. This is going to make it easier to scoop in the next step. 

Scoop Out the Bubble BarsScoop Out the Bubble Bars

Now, we have reached the fun part of forming the cute ice cream scoops! Get your flexible silicone mat out and place it on the counter next to you so that it is ready when you need it. Take out a stainless steel ice cream scoop and use it to scoop out the bubble bar dough. Start on the pink side of the bowl and work your way over to the green dough scooping across the bowl. Having the pink on the top is going to create the look of a watermelon. Make sure that you include all three of the colors in each of the scoops. As you dig them out, place the scoops onto your flexible silicone mat. 

Finishing Your Bubble BarsFinishing Your Bubble Bars

After all of the scoops are on your mat, you can bring out the poppy seeds. Sprinkle the poppy seeds onto these sour watermelon candy bubble bars to top them off. The amount that you choose to use is completely up to you and however you would like them to look. The poppy seeds are meant to resemble the seeds in watermelons. We sprinkled ours onto the pink portion of the bubble bars since that is the part where real watermelon seeds are. After they are topped off, you will need to give them some time to set up. Allow your watermelon bubble bars to sit undisturbed from anywhere between 24 and 48 hours. 

After you have waited long enough and checked that they have hardened up, your watermelon bubble bars will be ready to use! When you are ready to take them into your bath, all you have to do is simply crumble a couple of the scoops under your warm running bath water.

Before you begin to make any of these bubble bars, it is usually recommended to clean and sanitize any of your utensils and your workstation before starting on the recipe to guarantee the best results. You should wear gloves, an apron, a face mask, and a hair net while preparing this recipe.

Pumpkin Roll Fragrance OilPumpkin Roll Fragrance Oil

Before we begin preparing our pumpkin roll bubble bars project, let’s take a closer look at the fragrance oil that we will be using. Pumpkin Roll Fragrance Oil by Natures Garden Candle and Soap Making Supplies brings the aroma of a fall favorite to life without the added calories.  The aroma of sweet sugar pumpkin puree is spiced with hints of spicy cinnamon and nutmeg. Then, notes of a warm, sweet-butter crust, drizzled with maple and honey are layered in.

Top Notes: Orange, Sugar Pumpkin, Sweet Butter
Mid Notes: Maple, Cinnamon, Nutmeg
Base Notes: Vanilla

Preparing the Dry IngredientsPreparing the Dry Ingredients

We will start this process by preparing our dry ingredients for making the Pumpkin Roll Bubble Bars. Lay all of your ingredients out on your workstation to allow easy access to them while working. In the deep mixing bowl, weigh your baking soda, sodium cocoyl isethionate, cream of tartar, and corn starch. So, place your bowl on your scale and be sure to tare out your scale.  Then, add the powdered ingredients to your bowl.

Mixing the Dry Ingredients
Mixing the Dry Ingredients

Use your hands to mix the ingredients for the bubble bar recipe together. Any clumps that are present in the powder should be broken down using your hands to ensure that the dry ingredients are clump free and smooth. 

Mixing the Wet Ingredients

In a second small bowl, weigh out and mix the wet ingredients that are going to be added to the mixture. After the wet ingredients are weighed, add the following wet ingredients to a mixing bowl: vegetable glycerin, pumpkin seed oil, Vanilla White Color Stabilizer, and Pumpkin Roll Fragrance Oil. When all the ingredients are properly added to the bowl, mix the wet ingredients together. When you’re finished blending the ingredients, you are ready to begin mixing the wet ingredients with the powdered ingredients.

Combining the Ingredients TogetherCombining the Ingredients Together

The next step is to take the wet ingredients and add them to the same bowl containing the dry ingredients that you mixed. Put on your Nature’s Garden gloves, and mix the wet and dry bubble bar ingredients together using your hands. Keep mixing the ingredients in the deep bowl until you have a dough-like consistency that is slightly thicker than pizza dough.

Identify Correctly Mixed Dough

When you are finished mixing these ingredients, there are a few things you are looking for. If there are any lumps still present, keep mixing until you completely get rid of any lumps. If you come to notice that the dough is also too crumbly, then add some Nature’s Garden vegetable glycerin to the dough to ensure that it is smooth enough for rolling.  However, do not add too much to the doughy mixture otherwise it will not setup correctly and not harden completely.

Divide the Bubble Bar Dough in HalfDivide the Bubble Bar Dough in Half

Next, you will need a second deep mixing bowl. The dough in one of the bowls will remain white since this will be used as the internal filling to the Pumpkin Roll Bubble Bars Project. Take the bubble bar dough that you are going to leave white, roll it into a ball, and place it back into the bowl and leave it aside for later. Next, move over to the second bowl that contains the second lump of dough. The contents of the second bowl will be colored to resemble that of dough which will look like a lighter brown. 

Coloring the Pumpkin Colored Bubble Bar DoughColoring the Pumpkin Colored Bubble Bar Dough

Following the ingredient amounts listed above, add the following ingredients to the dough in the second bowl: the pumpkin pie spice blend powder, FUN Soap Colorant orange oxide, FUN Soap Colorant yellow oxide, and the FUN Soap Colorant brown oxide. Then, using your hands, mix the bubble bar dough until the ingredients are completely blended. After you have fully incorporate the ingredients in the mixing bowl, roll the pumpkin colored dough into a ball.

Preparing the MatPreparing the Mat

Now is the time to start rolling out the pumpkin roll dough. First, you will need your flexible silicone mat. Another option would be to use parchment paper instead. I prefer the baking mat because it is reusable and a little thicker and sturdier. Take some baking soda and lightly sprinkle it over the mat and rolling pin. The baking soda will work to aid in preventing the dough from sticking to the mat. If the dough is too sticky, it will have the tendency to want to stick to a silicone mat or the rolling pin that are being used to roll the dough out. 

Rolling the Pumpkin Colored DoughRolling the Pumpkin Colored Dough

First, make sure that the silicone mat is clean and dry. Then, take the pumpkin colored bubble bar dough, and place it on the flexible silicone mat. Take a rolling pin and roll the dough out into a rectangular shape. It doesn’t have to be a perfect rectangle. Just do your best to get it as close as you can. For the best look for your Pumpkin Roll Bubble Bars Project, make sure to roll the dough out to about a  ¼” thickness. 

 

Rolling out the White DoughRolling out the White Dough

Next, take the white bubble bar dough ball and place it on top of the pumpkin colored dough. Sprinkle a little bit more baking soda onto the rolling pin. When the rolling pin is ready to use, roll out the white dough ball that you placed on top of the pumpkin colored dough layer. When you’re done rolling out the white dough layer, it should come out to be about that same thickness as the pumpkin colored dough layer at around ¼”. You also want it to be about the same shape and size as the pumpkin colored dough. Again, it does not need to be exact. You just want it to be as close to the previous layer as possible.

 

Rolling Bubble Bar Dough into a LoafRolling Bubble Bar Dough into a Loaf

The next step is to roll the bubble bar dough into a loaf to look like a Pumpkin Roll.  The first step is to place the dough in front of you vertically. Take the edge of the parchment paper or silicone baking mat that is the closest to your body and lift up on it. You want to make sure you have a good grip on it. 

To roll a pumpkin roll, take the edge of the flat rectangular dough, and rolling it out over itself. Roll the dough into a cylinder to create a white swirl in the center of the roll. Take your time while rolling the dough to make sure that it doesn’t crack or tear in the process. Roll out the pumpkin roll evenly. This ensures that the entire Pumpkin Roll Bubble Bars Project looks its best.  Place the dough back onto the parchment paper.

Cutting the Loaf and Topping the Bubble BarsCutting the Loaf and Topping the Bubble Bars

When the pumpkin roll dough is rolled up to your desired look, take a knife and cut the roll into 1-2 inch slices or whichever thickness you prefer. Make sure the knife that you use to cut the bubble bar is clean of any excess residue. If you notice any debris on the knife, wipe it off before cutting the next slice. This should keep the pumpkin roll looking clean. The expected yield of this recipe is usually around 8 slices, but depending on how thick you ended up cutting the roll, it could vary by 1 or 2.  Finally, sprinkle about 1 tablespoon of corn starch onto the outside of the roll as to resemble powdered sugar.

Setting up and Decorating the Loaf

Once you have sliced your loaf, give the bubble bars time to set up. You can tell when the bubble bars are ready when they are hard to the tough.  When we made the bubble bars, it took them approximately 48-72 hours to setup completely. It can take longer for your results to setup depending on the environment of the room. Create these bubble bars in a dry room with low humidity, and at room temperature. This helps the bubble bars setup.

Using the Finished Pumpkin Roll

Your pumpkin roll bubble bars should now be ready to use. These bubble bars should make a great home decoration for the Halloween or Fall season. They are great to put out as a decoration in your bathroom next to the tub. You can also leave them on your sink countertop for decorations too.  To use the bubble bars, take one of the slices that you cut up, and crumble it under warm running bathwater. These bubble bars tend to give an inviting appearance to your bathtub, while also filling it up with bubble. In addition, they will leave your skin feeling soft and silky.  It’s a fun recipe for any age group, and anyone would enjoy soaking with this Nature’s Garden recipe.

Does the pumpkin roll bubble bar project leave you craving the real thing? If you want to make one of your own, here’s a delicious recipe from Jamie at My Baking Addition. She will show you just how the real thing is made.  I highly recommend this pumpkin roll recipe!  It is quite possible the best pumpkin roll I have every tried!

BIte Me Bloody Bath GelBite Me Bloody Bath Gel

Today, we are going to show you how to make a fun project that is perfect for Halloween!  Our Bite Me Bloody Bath Gel project uses Natures Garden’s Bite Me Fragrance Oil along with the Ritzy Bath Gel.  This soap making project is a fun and easy project that will make a spooktacular addition to your Halloween bath and body product line!

Bite Me Bloody Bath Gel Ingredients

Ritzy Bath Gel

Bite Me Fragrance Oil

Xanthum Gum

8 oz. Clear Boston Round Bottles

White 24/410 Lotion Pumps

Da Bomb Soap Dye- Red 

Ritzy Gallon Pump Dispenser

Disposable Pipettes


Other Items Needed for the Bite Me Bloody Bath Gel Project

Mixing Bowl

Measuring Spoon

Distilled Water

Hand Mixer

Funnel

Scale

Total Recipe Amounts:

27 ounces Ritzy Bath Gel

2 ounces Distilled Water

1/2 tsp Xanthum Gum

12 ml Bite Me Fragrance Oil

15 drops Da Bomb Soap Dye- Red

A Closer Look at Some of the Ingredients Used

Before we begin, let’s look at some of the Natures Garden products that we will be using in this soap making recipe.  We will look at these ingredients and talk a little more about each one in depth, below.  For those familiar with these products, you can go ahead and begin.

Ritzy Bath GelRitzy Bath Gel

The Ritzy Bath Gel from Natures Garden is a premade base.  In fact, it can be used right out of the jug.  This bath gel base allows you to create a quick bath and body product that work wonderfully.  It should be noted though, some fragrance oils can thin the base.  In order to counteract this, you can use a thickener, which we will talk about next, to get the base back to the proper thickness.

Xanthum GumXanthum Gum

The xanthum gum from Natures Garden Candle and Soap Making Supplies is a food grade, polysacharide, all natural thickener.  This thickener is designed to maintain transparency.  So, it perfect for products like our Bite Me Bloody Bath Gel.  It will allow your gel to maintain that gel look without turning it cloudy.   Xanthum gum can be used in products such as bath gel, shampoo, bubble bath, lotions, creams, shower gels, and liquid soaps.  Just a small amount of xanthum gum goes a long way.  In fact, you will only need .1-1% xanthum gum needed to thicken a thinned bath and body product.  When using xanthum gum, you will need to create a slurry.  So, you simply mix the powder with distilled water and mix with a hand mixer for about 5 minutes.  If you simply add the powder to your product, it will clump and not thicken.  Once you have mixed your xanthum gum, it should be quickly added to your product.

Da Bomb Soap DyesDa Bomb Soap Dyes

For this recipe, we will be working with the red Da Bomb Soap Dye.  The Da Bomb Soap Dyes from Natures Garden are water based colorants used in soap and cosmetic making.  They are FD&C dyes.  This particular soap dye is the red #40.  So, what make the Da Bomb Soap Dyes perfect for this soap making project?  Well, when used in bath gel, they allow you to maintain a translucent appearance.  In fact, this is also true when the Da Bomb soap colorants are used in a clear melt and pour soap base.  They produce a wonderful vibrant color.  However, when they are placed in a white soap base such as shea butter or goat’s milk mp soap base, they will give the finished soaps a beautiful pastel color.  They are also fabulous in lotions, whipped soap, and slime, giving each product that wonderful pastel color.

The Fragrance Oil Used in the Bite Me Bloody Bath Gel RecipeThe Fragrance Oil Used in the Bite Me Bloody Bath Gel Recipe

Dracula would fall in love with this fragrance oil by Natures Garden! Bite Me Fragrance Oil starts with fresh citrus notes of crisp lime and juicy orange sparkle with effervescent highlights. The citrus notes lead to a luscious blend of berry and cherry in this playful scent. Then, leafy green accents intensify as a base of vanilla creates sweet tones for the fragrance.  Bite Me Fragrance Oil is a Natures Garden original scent.

Top Notes:  black cherry, orange, strawberry, pineapple, lime
Mid Notes:  eucalyptus, violet, lily
Base Notes:  clove, vanilla bean

Did you know?  Count von Count the Muppet vampire from Sesame Street is based on the vampire myth that throwing mustard seeds outside ones door will stop any vampire from entering the home.  This is because, as the myth states, a vampire is compelled to count items, so therefore, the vampire would have to count all of the seeds which would take until sunrise.

So, how do our customers feel about Bite Me Fragrance Oil?  Well, they LOVE it!  Our clients use this berry scent in everything from wax melts to melt and pour soap to scrubs!  In fact it even performs well in CP soap!  Many consider this powerful fragrance oil a must have in their cold process soap line!  It had a perfect pour, no ricing, no acceleration, no separation, discolors to a light tan, very strong, a must have for all lines.

Bite Me Bloody Bath Gel Recipe Preparations

Prior to beginning, you will want to prepare your work area.  So, get all of your supplies out and ready in your clean work area.  In addition, clean and sanitize your packaging materials as well as any utensils that you will be using.  Finally, place the Ritzy gallon pump dispenser on the Ritzy Bath Gel jug.

Weigh Out Your Bath GelWeigh Out Your Bath Gel

First, you will need a deep mixing bowl.  Using a deep mixing bowl will make preparing the handcrafted bath gel much easier.  So, you will need your scale placed in front of you.  Then, place your bowl on the scale and weigh out 27 ounces of the Ritzy Bath Gel.

Color the Bite Me Bath GelColor the Bite Me Bath Gel

Next, we will add the soap colorant to the Bite Me Bath Gel.  So, you will need the red Da Bomb Soap Dye.  Then, to the Ritzy Bath Gel, you will need to add about 15 drops of the red Da Bomb Soap Dye.  Now, you will need to stir the gel to incorporate the color.  However, be careful not to over mix or mix too quickly.  Doing so can cause the base to create bubbles.

Adding the Bite Me Fragrance OilAdding the Bite Me Fragrance Oil

At this time we will be incorporating the scent.  As we talked about earlier, we will be adding Bite Me Fragrance Oil to this bath gel recipe.  If you have not worked with this berry scent in the past, you are missing out!  It happens to be one of my favorite fragrance oils!  So, the easiest way to add the fragrance is with a disposable pipette.  Using a disposable pipette, add 12 ml Bite Me Fragrance Oil to the bath gel.  Using a mixing spoon, blend the ingredients together.  Remember, stir slowly as stirring to quickly can create bubbles.

Adding the Xanthum Gum ThickenerAdding the Xanthum Gum Thickener

Now, you may notice that the fragrance oil has thinned the Rity Bath Gel.  Well, to help thicken the base back up, we will be adding some of the xanthum gum.  In order to do this, we need to first create a slurry  So, since xanthum gum will clump when added to water, we will first need to pre-mix it.  In an empty mixing bowl, add 1/2 tsp of the xanthum gum powder.  Then, and add 1/4 cup of room temperature distilled water.  Finally, use a hand mixer to mix the ingredients.  You will need to mix the two ingredients for about five minutes.  You will notice the mixture begin to take on a gel-like look.  This gel can then be added to the Bite Me scented bath gel in order to thicken it.  How much you add will depend on how thick you would like your finished bath gel to be.  So, simply add a small amount and then stir.  Once you are happy with the thickness, you are ready to move on.

Adding the Bath Gel to the BottlesAdding the Bath Gel to the Bottles

Finally, we are ready to add the Bite Me Bloody Bath Gel to the 8 ounce bottles.  So, you will need three bottles.  Additionally, you will need three pump dispensers.  Finally, you will need your funnel.  So, place the into the opening of one of the bottles.  Then, fill the bottles with some of the bath gel.


Then, remove the funnel and repeat this process with each of the bottles.  Lastly, place a pump on each bottle, trimming the dip tube on each one before placing it in the bottle.

 

Labeling the BottlesLabeling the Bottles

For this project, we decided to create labels for the handmade bath gel.  We then added a fun Halloween themed label to each bottle.

 

We hope that you have enjoyed creating this Bite Me Blood Bath Gel project.  If you have any questions about this project, or any other candle, cosmetic, or soap making questions, feel free to reach out to us.  You can contact us on our HUG Line, through email, or any of our social media sites.  We hope to hear from you soon!
