Herbal Make-Up RecipesHerbal Make-Up Recipes

If you love make-up, this blog is for you! Today we will be introducing to you our eye shadows that Melissa, our team member, has recently created. These homemade eye shadows are made from natural cosmetic clay, powders, and mica pigment. The ingredients that make up the powders used to create these shadows are full of nutrients and contribute many things to our body and health, which makes them even better to use in the cosmetics industry. There are eight different eye shadows we have created that all use a variation of the powders available at Natures Garden. On our website, you can check out each of the ingredients we used to make these, which will all be linked in this blog. You can also check out these herbal make-up recipes in full detail on our site!

Arrowroot Powder

Before we begin teaching about and creating these eye shadows, I wanted to talk about some of the ingredients that are present in every one of these make-up eye shadow recipes. There are a couple of items that are in each of these eye shadows, but this one is very important. That ingredient is arrowroot powder. It derives from St. Vincent and is extracted from tropical tubers. For example, the woody shrub cassava or the arrowroot plant. This powder is can be used both in cooking and in the cosmetic industry. There is no flavor to it and it serves as a thickener in soup, for instance. Arrowroot is white with a silky texture and is used in most deodorants, body powders, some make-up foundations, and eye shadows.

Diamond Dust Mica Pigment and 24K Gold Mica Pigment

Another important element to these eye shadows that is present in all of them are these two mica pigments. One of them is the diamond dust mica pigment and the other is the 24K gold mica pigment. They each add shimmer to whatever product you add it to. We use these in bath and body products as well as these eye shadows. These pigments are safe to use in items made for the lips, eyes, face, and nails. It can even be added to gel wax or glycerin soap to give them a pearly appearance. The diamond dust gives a silver color, while the 24K gold is, unsurprisingly, a gold shimmer.

The Eye Shadow Recipes

Activated Charcoal Eye Shadow
Bee Pollen Eye Shadow
Beet Root Eye Shadow
Black Walnut Eye Shadow
Cocoa Powder Eye Shadow

Spirulina Eye Shadow

Activated Charcoal EyeshadowActivated Charcoal Eye Shadow Recipe

First, we used activated charcoal powder to create this eyeshadow The other ingredients that are used to create these darker shadows are arrowroot powder, the diamond dust mica pigment, and the 24K gold mica pigment. Activated charcoal powder is the key to creating darkly pigmented products such as cosmetics, soap, face masks, and scrubs. It is a fine black powder that typically comes from hardwoods, coconut shells, or bamboo. By processing and heating the materials from these plants at high temperatures, it will turn into char.

The activated charcoal powder provides consumers with a natural way to color soap and other creations black without turning them into an unwanted gray color. A little of this powder goes a long way, which is why we only used either 1/8 teaspoon or 1/2 teaspoon to make the eye shadows you see here. This recipe will give you six 10 milliliter jars of eye shadows, which are all in different shades and luster.

Bee Pollen EyeshadowBee Pollen Powder Eye Shadow Recipe

In this recipe, you will use arrowroot and bee pollen powders. The bee pollen powder that we sell is rich in many vitamins. In fact, it contains elements that are good for you such as vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D, and vitamin E. It also contains 22 amino acids, 27 mineral salts, carbohydrates, hormones, and over 5000 enzymes. Other benefits include treating acne and being an anti-inflammatory agent and antibiotic, making it useful when it comes to cosmetics.

Vitamin A is useful for maintaining a healthy immune system, aiding in good vision, and promoting development and growth. Vitamin C also helps the immune system, can help heal wounds, maintain bones and teeth, and repair body tissue. The brain, nervous system, cardiovascular system, bones, and teeth are supported and maintained by vitamin D. Lastly, vitamin E is an antioxidant that helps protect your eyesight and helps fight off infection, making it vital to the immune system. Another way that bee pollen powder can be used is in our Royal Honey Bee Cold Process Soap recipe.

Now that you have learned all of the amazing properties that bee pollen contains, you will be even more excited to create these eye shadows that use it! This recipe provides you with three 10 milliliter jars and with three separate shades.

Beet Root EyeshadowBeet Root Eye Shadow Recipe

This recipe uses the key ingredient in the title of its name: beet root powder. It is a beautiful shade of maroon that comes from the root vegetable, beets. Beets derive from the Mediterranean region and were first cultivated in Italy. It has many enriching nutrients and benefits to the human body. There is vitamin B5, vitamin C, glycine, beta carotene, magnesium, selenium, potassium, phosphorous, zinc, tryptophan, and tyrosine. Beet root powder helps the liver to metabolize fats, reduces blood pressure, and reduces low density lipoproteins in the blood.

Although it does have the strong scent of beets, by applying fragrance oil or essential oil to other items you make, that can be corrected. Some of our other recipes that use beet root powder are Natural Beet Root Lip Gloss recipe, Berry Bewitching Bath Brew recipe, and our Candy Cane Facial Mask recipe. The powder is extremely versatile in bath and body products both for its properties and for the color it gives these creations. All of this makes this such a great product to work with!

Black Walnut EyeshadowBlack Walnut Eye Shadow Recipe

Now this eye shadow recipe utilizes arrowroot powder and black walnut hulls powder. This powder is used in a variety of industries. From cooking, hair products, cosmetics, medicine, as well as bath and body, this is great for all of it. Massage oils, bath bombs, make up, and face masks are among the common formulas that integrate this powder. Some benefits that it has are treating eczema, acne, psoriasis, and inflamed tissue.

The powder gives the eye shadows their rich color for more dark and smoky make up looks. The recipe will give you three 10 milliliter jars of these eye shadows in a dark brown, a bronzed tan, and a gray tone. A really cool and different type of recipe than most of the ones that we have shared is the Hair Conditioner for Dark Hair on our website. It also uses this black walnut hulls powder, which helps intensify your natural dark brown or black hair.

Cocoa EyeshadowCocoa Powder Eye Shadow Recipe

The main ingredient in this set of eye shadows is our organic cocoa powder, which originates from the Netherlands. It is made from cacao beans, which contain vitamin A, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B3, vitamin B5, vitamin C, and vitamin E. Vitamin B1 is involved with preventing complications with the brain, heart, stomach, intestines, muscles, and nervous system. Fats, carbohydrates, and proteins are broken down by vitamin B2. Every part of the body needs vitamin B3 to function properly. It can lower cholesterol, help with brain function, and ease arthritis pain. Another important nutrient, vitamin B5, creates red blood cells, synthesizes cholesterol, and maintains a healthy digestive tract. If you are curious, check back to the Bee Pollen eye shadow to refresh your memory on the benefits that vitamins A, C and E offer. Cacao also contains caffeine, which is beneficial to the skin as well.

This recipe produces eye shadows in three shades, including a mustard yellow, a cocoa brown, and a shimmery light gold color. The cocoa powder gives a natural brown color to your products without having to use colorants or dyes. This makes many great recipes because of the natural color and the nutrients it provides for the skin. Some other ones that use this organic cocoa powder are the Shimmering Bronzing Lotion recipe and Hot Fudge Brownies Cold Process Soap recipe from Natures Garden.

Hibiscus EyeshadowHibiscus Eye Shadow Recipe

Now we are getting more into the pink and rosy shades, which are my favorite! These eye shadows are made by combining Hibiscus Flower Powder with arrowroot powder, diamond dust mica pigment, and 24K gold mica pigment. There are three shades: a deep mauve, a light rosy silver, and a medallion yellow color. You can create countless eye make up looks with these neutral shades. Natures Garden also makes other recipes that contain this are the Firming Facial Mask and the Foaming Hibiscus Scrub.

In addition to the eye shadow recipe, hibiscus flower powder gives natural color to cosmetics. The natural red pigmentation is brought out by infusing the flowers in oil. Other skin care and hair care products use them as well. When added to shampoos and conditioners, the flowers prevent dandruff, thicken hair, and reduce the loss of hair. They are a natural cleanser, which makes them ideal for the skin. In skin care, the hibiscus flowers cleanse, soothe, and soften the skin and body. They are high in amino acids and antioxidants, which helps to prevent acne and has been shown to smooth out wrinkles.

Rose Clay EyeshadowRose Clay Eye Shadow Recipe

Additionally, these Rose Clay eye shadows are beautiful! They are my favorite shades out of all of the ones that were created. The recipe makes three 10 milliliter jars. There is a rose gold shade, a light bronze shade, and a rose tinted caramel shade. They are useful for everyday natural make up looks. Both of the mica pigments bring out a strong shimmer in the rose gold color, which is really pretty. This recipe uses our Rose Clay Powder, which is a shade of pink that is on the lighter side. Our products gain natural colorant from the rose clay.

This is another powder that is super versatile. Some other things it can be used for are mud baths, facial masks, melt and pour soap recipes, cold or hot process soap, bath bombs, and sugar and salt scrubs. It is a natural clay that has kaolinite in it, which is the most abundant clay mineral, and is used in ceramics and pottery. Rose clay can reduce inflammation and skin irritation, draw out toxins within the skin, and gently exfoliate. Sometimes it can be difficult to find products that are good for sensitive skin, but rose clay is one of them. Also, we have used this to make our Sandalwood Bath Bomb recipe and the Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap recipe.

Spirulina Eye ShadowSpirulina Powder Eye Shadow Recipe

Finally, for our last recipe in this blog, we will be talking about our Spirulina eye shadow. It contains Spirulina Powder, which is abundant in vitamin B12, vitamin F, natural beta carotene, and iron. Vitamin B12 prevents tiredness, making DNA, and keeping the nerve and blood cells in the body healthy. Vitamin F retains moisture in the skin, and beta carotene creates healthy skin and boosts the immune system. Finally, iron provides energy and helps us to focus. Additionally, the Seaside Spa Scrub recipe and Castile Hot Process Soap recipe are also made using spirulina powder. However, the eye shadow shades you will get out of this recipe are olive green/brown, darker teal, and a shiny light silver-teal color.

These eye shadow recipes are made with natural powders that contain an abundance of vitamins, nutrients, and minerals that are amazing for the skin, hair and nails. There are many benefits to the ingredients in these eye shadows that add a bonus to getting a cute make up look out of them.

Thank you for joining and following us along on this blog! We hope that you enjoy all of the different eye shadows you can make with these homemade recipes from Natures Garden!

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

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

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

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

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

Cinnanut Coffee Soap RecipeTen Coffee Craft Ideas Cinnanut Coffee Soap Recipe

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

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

Coffee Butter Scrub RecipeTen Coffee Craft Ideas Coffee Butter Scrub Recipe

This scrumptious Coffee Butter Scrub from Natures Garden is the perfect thing to add to your daily skin care routine.  It contains shea, cocoa, and mango butter which will make your skin feel soft and amazing! Our scrub acts as a 2 in 1 exfoliant and moisturizer. This coffee butter scrub contains real coffee grounds, which are used to exfoliate the body’s dead skin cells.

Plus, the recipe uses Cafe Mocha fragrance oil, which makes the butter scrub smell great as well. It contains scents of freshly brewed coffee, chocolate syrup, heavy cream, vanilla, and marshmallow–yummy!

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

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

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

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

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

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

These different notes within the fragrance give an impression that reminds me of a frappuccino.

Olive Oil in Soap Making


This entry was posted in Natures Garden, olive oil, recipes, soap supplies, soapmaking and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

Olive Oil PomaceOlive Oil in Soap Making

At Natures Garden we have many different methods for soap making, which we like to share with our customers through website descriptions, recipes, pictures, and videos. You can hot process soap, cold process soap, or make melt and pour soap, as some examples. We also sell many different waxes, butters, and oils that you can use to make your soap. For instance, we have Joy Wax, Pillar of Bliss Wax, Shea butter, cocoa butter, castor oil, and what we will be discussing today: olive oil. You will be learning a lot about our Pomace Olive Oil and how to use olive oil in soap making. There are so many recipes on our website that use this product, which we will introduce you to. Whether you are trying this method out for the first time, or you are an experienced master at it, there is a lot to learn!

Pomace Olive Oil

Using olive oil in soap making is actually a very common method. It is generally the number one oil used in most soap makers’ recipes! This oil is easily available, easy to use, and highly beneficial, which is why it is so common. Pomace olive oil is both thick and rich in texture. It has a greener shade than some other olive oils out there that are more yellow in color. Extra virgin olive oil and Grade A oils are made from the pits of olives that go through solvent extraction. Once there have been multiple pressings and extractions, what is left over is what makes up the pomace grade olive oil.

There are multiple reasons that this is such a common ingredient in soap making. Many essential fatty acids are present in olive oil including palmitic, stearic, oleic, linoleic, and linolenic. Olive oil is rich in antioxidants and these ingredients provide benefits for the hair and the scalp when used in shampoo. They help promote health of the scalp, treat dry scalp, and can treat hair loss. It boosts hair growth because it massages and increases blood flow to the hair follicles as well. There are additional benefits that olive oil provides to the skin. It is incredibly moisturizing, which makes it a popular element of massage oils. Olive oil is used to make bars of soap that are a good hard texture. You can also use olive oil to make lip balms, scrubs, lotions, and more!

Castile Soap

Castile is one type of soap that is made from 100% olive oil. This type of soap contains only olive oil, lye, and water. There are many benefits to using this product. A major benefit of soap containing olive oil is that they are great for sensitive skin and dry skin. Castile soap is typical to use on babies because they have sensitive skin and this type of soap is highly conditioning and super gentle. Olive oil gives soap a moisturizing texture, nourishes and restores skin by making it feel extra smooth. Different kinds of soap have certain properties about them. Castile is made with 100% olive oil, which means it is not a cleansing soap. Other types of soap blend a few types of oils to balance out different properties, such as cleansing and conditioning. Bastille soap, for example, blends separate oils together to do this.

Bastille Soap

Another type of soap made from olive oil is called Bastille Soap. Unlike Castile soap, which is made with 100% olive oil, Bastille is made up of 75%. The olive oil is mixed with other oils as well, including coconut oil and castor oil. It is made up of water, lye, olive oil (75%), coconut oil 76 (20%), and castor oil (5%). As previously mentioned, olive oil is highly conditioning but not cleansing. Coconut oil is highly cleansing, but not conditioning, which causes this soap to balance itself out. The castor oil is high in conditioning, bubbly lather, and creamy lather. This helps the soap bubble better, have a softer texture for your skin, and nourishes dry skin. Without this balance, your soap could leave your skin dry and dehydrated. We have a list of soaping oil properties that you can help you understand the properties of soaping oils.

Marseille Soap

A third type of soap that contains olive oil is called Marseille. This type must contain at least 72% olive oil. Marseille soap is composed of some other vegetable oils, palm oil, and coconut oil. Palm oil adds hardness and creamy lathering properties to this soap, balancing out the conditioning of the olive oil. There are also benefits such that it is an anti-bacterial and it being a very gentle type of soap, which are both bonuses for your skin. This soap can also be used in shampoos, shaving soaps, and shower gels. There are many other products that it can be used to create as well, like laundry detergent, a jewelry cleaner, or a detergent for your dishwasher. Now we will get into some recipes from Natures Garden that contain olive oil that we would like to share with you!

Cold Process Soap Making Class

We are going to be mentioning some of our recipes that use olive oil and are cold processed soap. Before we begin, we would suggest taking a look at our FREE class for making cold process soap. If you are unfamiliar with this process and would like to gain a better understanding of it before attempting it yourself, this class can help with that. Cold process soap is made with fresh lye, which can be highly dangerous if it is not handled properly. Lye is used to make all soap and you need to be sure that you are taking the proper precautions. This is why it is important to educate yourself about the ingredients that you will be working with.

Blueberry Cheesecake Cold Process SoapRecipes with Olive Oil: Blueberry Cheesecake Cold Process Soap

We would like to talk about using olive oil to make cold process soap. This is our handcrafted recipe for Blueberry Cheesecake Cold Process soap. This will provide you with four pounds of soap. In this recipe you are going to combine the olive oil with palm oil, coconut oil 76, fractionated coconut oil, castor oil, safflower oil, and Shea butter. Most soaps combine several oils with butters just like this one does. This mixture creates the soft and moisturizing properties that customers desire in soap and other products. The perfect blue swirls in this cold processed soap make the finished product look so beautiful. Another bonus is that it smells delicious because it is made with our Blueberry Cheesecake fragrance oil. This handcrafted cp soap recipe is unique in that we have used milk instead of water for a portion of our lye solution.

Doggy Shampoo Cold Process SoapRecipes with Olive Oil: Doggy Shampoo Cold Process Soap

This is such a fun recipe that anyone out there can create. We actually got this recipe idea when we saw cute cupcakes with dogs on them and thought we could turn it into soap! You will be able to get three doggy shampoo soaps out of this. They make the perfect addition to your shower routine and can also add something cute to your bathroom counter or shower shelf. It can be a cute gift to give to a friend as well.

This creation uses coconut oil 76, palm oil, castor oil, fractionated coconut oil, and of course, the olive oil. The combination of each of these oils makes this soap into a buttery, smooth texture. The overall product definitely has a strong conditioning component added to it by the olive oil. Our Sage Leaf Fragrance Oil adds scent to it, which is reminiscent of fresh sage leaves. You can also switch this recipe up and make it your own by shaping the dog however you want, or by adding different FUN soap colorants if you would like to.

Other Recipes That Use Olive Oil

Although olive oil is very common when making cold process soap, it can be used for other things as well. Many of our other homemade recipes use it as well, other than those with soap making. We have a large variety of these listed on our website, but the possibilities are endless when you have the creativity! The ones that we are going to be talking about today are our Black Cherry Bath Bomb and Fruity Rings Sugar Scrub.

Black Cherry BombBlack Cherry Bath Bomb

Taking a bath from time to time can be relaxing and rejuvenating to the body and the mind. You might even enjoy adding a bubbly bath bomb to the hot water. We have created many of these on our website with multiple fragrance oils, other types of oils, powders, and soap colorants to give them some color. To create your bubbly bath, hold the bath bomb underneath the hot water as you are filling up the tub. It will begin disintegrating, fizzing, and forming into a swirling bubble bath full of color and a strong, yummy scent. This recipe uses one of the Natures Garden original fragrances and this one is one of our top sellers: Black Cherry BOMB. It has a VERY strong scent of black cherry that is sweet but not overly sweet.

To make this, you will mix the olive oil in with the fragrance oil and the castor oil. These ingredients will moisturize your skin when you are taking a bath using this bath bomb. There are some dry ingredients that contribute to the softening of the skin and provide other benefits as well. The Beet Root Powder gives the pink and red color to the bath bomb and provides multiple nutrients such as beta carotene, vitamins B5, B1, and C. It also contains selenium, potassium, phosphorous, glycine, tyrosine, zinc, magnesium, and tryptophan. Bentonite Clay Powder helps clean skin impurities, helps with oily skin, and in this case, makes the bath bomb harder and more durable in order to disintegrate better. This recipe makes five large bath bombs, which lasts for a while!

Fruity Ring Sugar ScrubFruity Rings Emulsified Sugar Scrub

This Fruity Rings Sugar Scrub recipe will make eight 4 ounce jars of product, which is a lot! The directions are simple to follow, and the results will definitely leave your skin feeling silky smooth and rejuvenated. To make this scrub, combine the olive oil with sweet almond oil, cocoa butter deodorized, Shea butter, beeswax, and the emulsifying wax. Each one of these ingredients will help to create a sugar scrub that moisturizes exceptionally and thoroughly nourishes the skin on a deeper level.

Shea butter actually contains many of the same essential fatty acids that olive oil does. It has palmitic, stearic, linoleic, and oleic. We use Shea butter in many of our products because it has the perfect texture for loads of recipes. We use it to make lip gloss, lip balms, and many bath and body products including lotion, body scrubs, and of course, soap. When it is used to make soap, it can add really great conditioning and creamy lathering properties to it. There are some added aesthetic benefits to this sugar scrub as well, which we all love. It has a rainbow look to it when placed in the jar in layers, and give off the delicious scents of lemon, verbena, vanilla sugar, and grapefruit that flow wonderfully together!

All of the recipes we have mentioned in this blog are our very own and have all been handmade. We hope that you have enjoyed getting to learn more about pomace olive oil and how useful it can be for your soap making!

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

460 grams of the Baking Soda
10 grams of the Bentonite Clay Powder
14 grams of the Cotton Candy Fragrance Oil

Cotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Clean and Sanitize

First of all, we would like to let you know that this bath recipe is best prepared in non-humid climates. While you can try to make this cosmetic recipe in a more humid environment, it may take longer for these bath fizzies to set up and completely harden.

Also, you should clean up your work space and bath bomb making supplies before you begin to work on your diy bath recipe. First of all, washing your craft supplies will help to prevent you from accidentally getting your cosmetic recipe dirty. Plus, cleaning up your work space will give you more space to work that is clean and ready to use. So, creating your sweet cotton candy scented bath bombs will be easier and lead to a cleaner product.

Cotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Before Making Your Bath Bomb

Before you begin this fun bath and body recipe, you will need to prepare a bottle of witch hazel. This bottle of witch hazel will be used later on in the process. This witch hazel will be used to activate the bath fizzy mixture before you fill the bath bombs. So, you will want to fill up your 8 oz bullet bottle with witch hazel. Then, screw on the spray bottle lid. Now, you can set this spray bottle aside until you need it at a later step. 

Also, you will want to use disposable gloves for this bath bomb recipe. Wearing gloves will allow you to use your hands to mix your bath and body ingredients. So, it will be easier to mix your cosmetic ingredients thoroughly and evenly. Plus, wearing  gloves will help you to keep your cosmetic recipe clean as you are mixing your bath bomb ingredients.

Cotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Weighing the Baking SodaCotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Weighing the Baking Soda

First, you are going to want to weigh out 460 grams of the Baking Soda powder. Then, you will want to add this cosmetic ingredient to your medium sized mixing bowl. Once you have your measured amount of baking soda, you will need to break up any clumps in this cosmetic ingredient. We would suggest that you use your clean, gloved hands to break up any of these clumps. Once the baking soda powder is completely smooth and free of any clumps, you are ready to move on to the next step.

Cotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Adding Cosmetic Clay and Citric AcidCotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Adding Cosmetic Clay and Citric Acid

After your baking soda is free of clumps, you are going to want to add the remaining cosmetic ingredients to your medium mixing bowl. So, you will need to add 350 grams of the Citric Acid as well as 10 grams of the Bentonite Clay Powder. Then, you will use your gloved hands to mix these three dry cosmetic ingredients together. After these bath bomb ingredients are mixed together well, you are ready to move on to the next step of this process.

Cotton Candy Fragrance OilCotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Adding the Fragrance Oil

Next, we are going to be adding the delicious aroma of our Cotton Candy Fragrance Oil to the bath bomb recipe. This scented oil has an aroma that blends the scent of fresh, juicy strawberries and scrumptious notes of French vanilla. You will need to weigh out 14 grams of this yummy wholesale fragrance oil. Then, you will add this scented oil to your cosmetic mixture. After, you will mix the sugary sweet aroma of this fragrance oil with your cosmetic ingredients. You can use your gloved hands to mix this scent fully into your cosmetic ingredients.

Cotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Coloring Your Cosmetic Recipe

Now that your cosmetic ingredients are mixed together, you are ready to color your bath recipe. So, you are going to want to separate your bath bomb mixture into two equal portions. Once you have two mixing bowls that each contain half of the total cosmetic mixture, you are ready to add the cosmetic colorants to each of your bath bomb mixtures. Since pink and blue are two of the most iconic cotton candy colors, we are going to use these two colors for this bath and body recipe!

Cotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Coloring the Pink PortionCotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Coloring the Pink Portion

Next, you are going to need to grab one of the two bowls that contain half of the mixture portion. This half of the mixture is going to be the pink half of your finished bath bomb. In order for you to get a pretty pink color, you will need to add the neon pink FUN Soap Colorant to this bath bomb mixture. You will want to add a few drops of this colorant and mix everything together. After the colorant is mixed in, you can decide whether you need to add a few more drops of the colorant. After adding this cosmetic colorant to your mixture, you will use your gloved hands to fully mix the colorant into your other cosmetic ingredients until you have an even pink color.

Cotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Coloring the Blue PortionCotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Coloring the Blue Portion

Now, you are ready to color the remaining portion of your total bath and body mixture. First, you are going to need to change your gloves to avoid accidentally mixing in the pink colorant from the previous portion. After you have clean gloves, you will be ready to mix in the Neon Blue FUN Soap Colorant. You will want to mix in a few drops of this cosmetic colorant into your mixture until you have an even blue color. Then, you can decide whether you want to add more colorant to get a brighter, more vivid blue color.

Cotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Activating Your Mixture

Now that both halves of your cosmetic mixtures are scented and colored, you are ready to activate your bath bomb mixtures. For each of these two mixtures, you will need the bottle of witch hazel that you have previously prepared. Then, lightly spray the witch hazel into the bowl and mix the ingredients together with your gloved hands. You will want to continue to spray and mix until you have a consistency of crumbly dough. You will need to be careful not to spray too much witch hazel, as you could potentially activate the bath bomb mixture in the bowl. After one of the mixture portions are at the right consistency, you will need to repeat this step with the other portion.

Cotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Filling the Bath Bomb Molds

Next, you are ready to fill up your bath bomb molds. You will want to firmly press the bath bomb mixture into the bath bomb mold. Once the bath bomb mixture is pressed tightly into the mold, you can fill all the remaining bath bomb mold halves. After you have filled all the halves with the pink, you will want to repeat the process with the blue mixture.

Cotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Note for Filling the Molds

For each bath bomb mold you are going to want to have half pink and half blue. So, you will want to pay attention to which side of the bath bomb mold that you are filling. We would suggest filling the tops of your mold with the pink color and the bottom of the bath bomb mold with the blue color. This method of filling your cosmetic molds will help to make sure that you don’t end up with a bath bomb that is only one color.

Cotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Putting Together Your Bath Bomb Molds

Now that all of your bath bomb halves are completely filled and packed tightly, you are ready to combine the top and bottom of your bath bombs! So, you will need a pink half and a blue half. Each of these two halves will need to be lightly sprayed with witch hazel. Then, you will need to press these two halves together until you can tell that the bath bomb mold snaps shut. You will need to repeat this step with the other bath bomb mold halves until you have about four complete bath fizzies.

Cotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Finishing Up Your Bath Bomb

Before you can remove your bath fizzies from the mold, you need to wait for them to set up completely. If your recipe hasn’t completely hardened before you remove them from the mold, then they may break or even crumble. So, you will want to wait until the fizzies are hard, which can take a few days to a week. The time it takes will depend on the level of humidity in your area. Once your bath and body recipes have hardened, you are ready to use your bath fizzies! If you aren’t ready to use the cotton candy bath fizzies right away, then you can even leave them in the mold for a simple packaging idea!

Cotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Making Cotton Candy at Home

Not only can you enjoy the delicious aroma of these cotton candy bath bombs, but you can make some real cotton candy right at home! If you want to try making this delicious treat, then check out Jacques’ Homemade Cotton Candy from the Food Network. You don’t need a fancy machine to create your own cotton candy, as this creative recipe uses home items, like a modified whisk and wooden spoons.
