Bacon Bath Bomb Recipe: Clean and Sanitize

First of all, you should know that this recipe is best prepared in non-humid climates. While you can try to make this recipe in a humid environment, it may take longer for your bath bomb to set up.

Also, you should clean your work space and equipment before you begin working on your diy bath bomb recipe. First, washing your craft supplies will prevent you from getting your cosmetic recipe from getting dirty. Plus, cleaning your work space will give you more space to work on creating your scrumptiously scented bath bombs.

Bacon Bath Bomb Recipe: Before Making Your Bath Bomb

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

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

Bacon Bath Bomb Recipe: Weigh Out Baking Soda Powder

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

Bacon Bath Bomb Recipe: Adding the Cosmetic Clay Powders

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

Bacon Bath Bomb Recipe: Scenting Your Bath Bomb Mixture

Now, you are ready to scent your luscious bath bomb mixture with the lovely aroma of our Bacon Fragrance Oil. This delicious and fun bath bomb scent was created to have an aroma that smells just like real, freshly made bacon! If you would like to add this yummy scent to your bath bomb recipe, then weigh out 14 grams of the wholesale Bacon Fragrance Oil. After weighing this scent, you can add this bacon scented oil to the rest of your cosmetic ingredients in the medium mixing bowl. Next, you will want to use your gloved hands to fully mix all of these bath bomb ingredients together. Once this fragrance oil has been combined well into the mix of dry ingredients, you are ready to move on to the next step in the process.

Bacon Bath Bomb Recipe: Separating and Coloring the Mixture

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

Bacon Bath Bomb Recipe: The First Portion of the Mixture

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

Bacon Bath Bomb Recipe: Coloring One Mixture Portion

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

Bacon Bath Bomb Recipe: Coloring the Second Mixture Portion

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

Bacon Bath Bomb Recipe: Activate Your Bath Bomb Mixtures

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

Bacon Bath Bomb Recipe: Begin Filling Your Bath Bomb Molds

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

Bacon Bath Bomb Recipe: Combining the Bath Bomb Halves

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

Bacon Bath Bomb Recipe: Letting Your Bath Bombs Set Up

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

Katie's Favorite ScentsKatie’s Favorite Scents: Katie Smells

Today I visited our store on the southwest corner of Whitehead and Route 18. We have over 800 fragrance oils at our fragrance bar, and I smelled every one. Every. Single. One. All for you, dear reader. So I could tell you about my top ten favorite scents – Katie’s Favorite Scents. (I’m Katie; hi!)

BACONBacon

I bet you can figure this one out. We have a fragrance oil that smells like sweet, savory baconIt doesn’t smell like REAL bacon, I’ve heard people say, but it comes pretty darn close. The only way it could smell more like “real” bacon is if it were an actual bottle of bacon grease. But who’s using bacon grease to make soap or candles when you can use bacon grease for BACON?! Man, I really want some bacon. If you want soap or candles that smell like bacon- this is your best bet.

Berry Bewitching BrewBerry Bewitching Brew

Fun to say, even more fun to smell. Berry Bewitching Brew is full of fruity fragrances that are not overpowering- a hint of woodsy musk serves to balance the scent. Fruits in this fragrance include peach, apricots, and blackberries. This scent makes me think of a secluded house near the woods with the windows open. Perfect to use in homemade soap or candles if you have such a house. Or if you don’t, you can let it transport you to a place of peace. Almost like magic.

Iced PineappleIced Pineapple

Speaking of clean, fruity smells, how about some pineapple? All the smell of fresh pineapple without having to do all the work of cutting an actual pineapple. It may seem a little tropical or summery, but this scent smells great year round – like a vacation for your nose! This is another one of those mouth-watering scents that you’ll just want to bite into–but please don’t. If you feel so compelled, go out and by fresh pineapple, or canned pineapple.

Pumpkin Apple ButterPumpkin Apple Butter

Let’s face it, unfortunately, summer is over for soap-makers and it’s time to start making soap that will cure by the Fall. Fret not, readers – I have found yet another delicious scent, but this one embodies autumn: Pumpkin Apple Butter. Do you like making baked goods with pumpkin? How about apple? How about butter? How about the smell of those delicious treats together?? No need to stick your head in the oven, this scent smells just like Grandma’s kitchen during dessert on Thanksgiving.

NG Baby Graceful TypeNG Baby Graceful Type

As a former professional sitter, lemme tell you, babies do not always smell great. In fact, they rarely do, if ever. NG Baby Graceful Type smells like the babies that dreams are made of. It’s fresh and clean with a hint of fruit and sweetness. And look at how cute that baby is in the photo. She’s a butterfly princess! What a sweetie. This fragrance will make you forget that real babies are loud and smelly, and instead invoke thoughts of cherubs who help you with housework. Can you imagine if real babies did that?

Smoke EliminatorSmoke Eliminator

Okay, so this one doesn’t have the most flowery or imaginative name, but it smells great. Smoke Eliminator fragrance oil is loaded with lemon and lime to give you a fresh fruit scent. Like a refreshing lemon-lime soda. Even if you don’t need to eliminate the smell of smoke, a fragrance this strong could help clean air against other odors as well (wet dog? smelly cat? stinky babies?).  I’d call this another mouth-watering scent, but the cigarette in the picture is kind of ruining it for me. Don’t eat cigarettes.

SpearmintSpearmint

Alright, reader. I’m going to level with you. I chose most of these scents because they hold a position near and dear to my heart. I love spearmint. Once upon a time, a certain company used to make bite-sized mint candies, and I would eat at least a pack a day. I cannot get enough mint. Spearmint helps stimulate brain function, circulation, and can even work to provide relief from digestive and menstruation issues. Plus, it smells nice and clean. Cooling, relaxing.

RootbeerRootbeer

Speaking of sweet treats that I once was obsessed with- ROOTBEER! This fragrance oil smells just like the real thing. Or- like the bacon fragrance oil- as close as possible to the real thing without actually being the real thing. Mmm. A nice, vanilla-y scent, this smell takes me back to when I consumed any and all things rootbeer-related. My younger sister was mistakenly under the impression that rootbeer was alcoholic and thought I indeed had a serious problem. (If you’re looking for the smell of actual beer – we have that, too.)

NG Vanilla Lace and PearlsNG Vanilla Lace and Pearls

We have got plenty of vanilla-scented fragrance oils, but NG Vanilla Lace and Pearls is by far my personal favorite. As a child, I had a body spray that smelled very similar to this scent. I had one bottle and I saved it for only the most special occasions. This was the scent of the woman I wanted to be: a princess. Look at that picture – sweet and delicate yet refined and beautiful. Warm vanilla with a hint of sweet flower and musk. We also have a Princess Type fragrance oil, but I personally prefer lace and pearls.

Moonlight PomegranateMoonlight Pomegranate

Okay, so Moonlight Pomegranate reminds me of the body spray I preferred as a teen. More sexy, more mysterious, accentuated by the moonlight. Wildly inappropriate in context, but as far as the person you aspire to smell like, not bad at all. This scent is fruity yet spicy and even a little woodsy. Like eating a pomegranate in a moonlit clearing in the forest. Don’t believe me? Go try it during the next full moon. Wear a silky, dark red dress. Sweet, sexy, mysterious.

Katie Smells and So Can You!

Remember – this list is nowhere near exhaustive! These were just my top ten favorites, and I honestly had a very difficult time picking only ten. Stop on by our store and smell for yourself. We have over 800 scents – you’re bound to find one that you absolutely love. I challenge you to write your own top ten; it’s a lot harder than you’d think. Thanks for reading!

Bacon-Candle-Step-1Using a hot glue gun, glue two CD-12 wicks to the apothecary jar.  Make sure they are place equally apart in the candle jar.
For the next step you will need three ziplock bags.  In each of the 3 bags, weigh out 120 grams of Natures Garden’s Pillar of Bliss Candle Wax.

 

Now, add 12 grams of Nature’s Garden Bacon Fragrance Oil to each bag.
Next, we are going to color the wax using Natures Garden Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye. This candle colorant will be added straight to the ziplock bag just like you did with the fragrance. In the first bag add 1 drop of Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye- Red and 1 drop of Spectrum Liquid Candle Dye- Brown.  This will be used for the darker red color.  Bag two will be used as the light pink color.  Dip a toothpick tip into the red spectrum candle dye and place the dye into the wax.  Dip the toothpick one more time into the red candle dye and work into the wax.  Lastly, dip another toothpick into the brown dye one time and incorporate into the wax.  The third ziplock bag will remain uncolored.  Shake each bag well.  Make sure all of the color and bacon fragrance oil is fully dispersed.

Now, it is time to begin creating your candle.  We suggest using disposable spoons for this.  We will simply be layering the wax to create a bacon like look.  Start with the uncolored Pillar of Bliss Wax.  Place the wax along the bottom of the jar.  You will want to make a thin line of uncolored, bacon scented wax.  Directly on top of the uncolored wax, place a layer of the light pink wax.  On top of the light pink granulated wax, place a thin layer of the dark red wax.  Continue layering the wax until your jar is completely full.  Be careful when filling your jar.  You want to make sure the wicks remain centered as you fill the candle container.  Once you have filled the jar, use a pencil to curl the candle wicks.
