What Makes Fall Such a Great Season?

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

Once your mold is filled, you are going to need to let your bubble bars set up. You will need to make sure that they harden enough so that they can be removed from the mold without cracking.

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.

This helps in creating your homemade recipe without needing to stop right in the middle to look for your ingredients.

Dreama Bubble Bar Recipe: Create a Double Boiler

Before you start weighing out your cosmetic oils you are going to want to create the double boiler. While you will still need to stir, the double boiler will be useful for saving your cosmetic oils from scorching. To create a double boiler you will need two pots where one will fit into the other. In the larger pot, you will add the water, which will be heated on the stovetop. Next, place your smaller pot into the pot with water. Now, you will want to heat your water. As long as the water doesn’t boil over into the smaller pot, you are ready to add your cosmetic ingredients to melt.

You will need to add 70 grams of the Shea Butter, 30 grams of the Mango Butter, and 9 grams of the Avocado Oil to the smaller pot of your double boiler. While the double boiler will help prevent these natural oils from scorching, you still need to stir occasionally to melt everything.

Now you are ready to mix the melted cosmetic oils and the dry mixture together. So, retrieve your mixing bowl of the dry cosmetic ingredients.

Dreama Bubble Bar Recipe: Separating the Bubble Bar

Next, you are going to want to separate your bubble bar mixture into three separate portions. But, these three portions won’t be equal. One portion will become the base of your homemade bubble bar and will use the most. A second portion will be the petals of the flower on top of the bubble bar. The last portion will be the smallest portion that is used for the middle of the bubble bar flower.

Now, you are going to remove some of the bubble bar mixture to use for the petals of the flower later on. So, you will need to take 200 grams of the overall mixture and put it in a new mixing bowl. This portion will remain uncolored to be the white petals of the flower. You can set this bowl aside for now to use in a later step.

Dreama Bubble Bar Recipe: Preparing the Yellow CenterDreama Bubble Bar Recipe: Preparing the Yellow Center

Next, you are going to take a bit more from the bubble bar mixture to prepare the yellow center of the flower. So, you will need to remove 29 grams of the batter and add it to a new mixing bowl. You will need to add 3 drops of the Neon Yellow FUN Soap Colorant and 2 drops of the Yellow Oxide FUN Soap Colorant to your bowl. You will need to use your gloved hands to mix the color into the batter thoroughly.

You will need to use your clean, gloved hands to mix the color into the batter thoroughly.

Dreama Bubble Bar Recipe: Filling the Cosmetic MoldDreama Bubble Bar Recipe: Filling the Cosmetic Mold

Now that your green portion is ready to use, you are going to use it to fill the base of your bubble bar. So, you will need to get the 6 Cavity Muffin Silicone Soap Mold. Then, you will use your gloved hands to pack the cavities in the mold until you use all of the dough. This green portion will allow you to make about five bubble bars in total. Once you have used all of your green mixture, you are ready to move on to the next step in the process.

Dreama Bubble Bar Recipe: Creating the Flower CenterDreama Bubble Bar Recipe: Creating the Flower Center

Next, you are going to start creating the flower portion for these bath and body creations. First, you need to create the center of the flower.  You will want to grab the yellow portion that you had prepared in a previous step. Now, grab a small piece of this portion and roll it into a ball shape. Then, you will want to press your yellow ball into the center of each green base. This will act as the center of each flower. Of course, the green base will still be in the mold as it has not set up yet.

Dreama Bubble Bar Recipe: Start Making the PetalsDreama Bubble Bar Recipe: Start Making the Petals

After adding the center of the flower to you mold, you are ready to start creating the petals. So, you will want to pinch off an amount between 7 grams and 8 grams of your uncolored portion. Use your fingers to roll your dough into a thick petal shape. Also, you will want your petal to look similar to the picture shown to the left. You will need to create 25 petals in total, which will end up being five petals for each flower.

Dreama Bubble Bar Recipe: Finish Making the FlowerDreama Bubble Bar Recipe: Finish Making the Flower

You will need to use the petals you made to finish up the flower. Since you will need to have five for each flower, you will want to space out the petals right. For each petal you will want to start by setting it in place. Then, press it down using more pressure on the area of the petal that is closest to the outer edge and light pressure near the yellow center.  You will want to repeat this process for each of the petals.

  • Mixing Spoon
  • Scale
  • Toothpicks

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Total Recipe Amounts

We have included the amounts of each ingredient we will be using. As a side note,  while we give you both weight and volume measurements, we highly recommend using a scale as the measurements will be more precise amounts.

  • 410 grams (2 cups) Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (SCI)
  • 460 grams (2 cups) Sodium Bicarbonate- Baking Soda

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Some of the Ingredients Used

Before we get started on our bubble bars, let’s get familiar with some of the ingredients. Our first ingredient is Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate or SCI. SCI is derived from coconut. It is a foaming and cleansing agent that will leave your skin silky soft and smooth.

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Sodium BicarbonatePumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Sodium Bicarbonate

Our next ingredient is Sodium Bicarbonate or Baking Soda. This is is a natural alkaline that is used in cosmetic formulations and cleaning formulas to lift dirt, and remove oils. Using baking soda in your bathtub will leave your skin soft and silky feeling.  It also has the same effect on your hair when used in a rinse. Baking Soda is most often combined with Citric Acid when making bath bombs.

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Cream of TartarPumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Cream of Tartar

Cream of Tartar is our next ingredient. Most people assume Cream of Tartar is just for baking, however, it is used in many bath products such as bath cookies and of course, bubble bars. Cream of Tartar acts as a stabilizer and allows the ingredients to adhere each other. It will also give the product a more “airy and fluffier” texture.

Pumpkin Bubble Bars recipe: Corn StarchPumpkin Bubble Bars recipe: Corn Starch

Corn Starch is up next. This is another ingredient used widely in the culinary world as a natural thickener for soups, gravies or sauces, but corn starch is also widely used in skincare formulas to provide the skin with silkiness and to relieve irritation.

 

 

 

Pumpkin Bubble Bars: Pumpkin Seed OilPumpkin Bubble Bars: Pumpkin Seed Oil

Because we are making pumpkins, we chose to incorporate some Pumpkin Seed Oil! Pumpkin Seed Oil is loaded with many nutrients, such as, Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, Vitamins E, A, and C.  It is also rich in the mineral, zinc. Pumpkin seed oil readily sinks into the skin; not leaving the skin feeling oily and can help to repair dry, damaged skin.

 

 

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Harvest Moon Fragrance OilPumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Harvest Moon Fragrance Oil

The fragrance we chose for these fall bubble bars, is our Harvest Moon fragrance oil. This fragrance is a fresh, crisp mix of blueberries, pineapple, eucalyptus with woodsy bass notes of spruce, fir and cedar. A complex mixture of scents that wouldn’t seem like they could go together. Very unique!

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Before You Get Started

Before you get started on your bubble bars, it’s always best to take a few precautionary steps. Start by cleaning and sanitizing your work area thoroughly. Also, clean your utensils and equipment well. Make sure that you have a large enough work area and have all your ingredients and equipment handy. This will help your creating run smoothly without any interruptions. We also suggest that you were gloves, an apron, face mask and hair net while preparing this recipe.

Now that your oils are mixed nicely, go ahead and add them to the bowl containing the dry ingredients. Using your gloved hands, mix these ingredients together completely. Continue to mix until you have a dough-like consistency. Note: If your dough is too dry and crumbles, you can add a little more vegetable glycerin. However, use with caution. Adding too much will make your dough too wet and it may not setup properly.

 

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Setting Aside a Small Amount

You will be decorating the bubble bars with a small amount of the dough that will be colored later. So, take a small bowl and place it on your scale. Tare out the weight and to the bowl, add 28 grams of the dough mix. You can set this aside for the time being.

Next, we are going to color the dough to its orange pumpkin shade! To your mixed dough, add 20 drops of red Da Bomb Soap Dye and 30 drops of yellow Da Bomb Soap Dye. Once again, using your gloved hands, mix the dyes into the dough until you have achieved a nice, pumpkin orange.

Next, you will be forming the dough into pumpkin shapes. Separate the dough into 7 even-sized portions and using your hands, form the portions into balls. Pack them tightly, just like if you were making a snowball. Make sure they are even and smooth with no cracks showing or they will not set up properly.

Now that you have your pumpkins shaped and packed tightly, you will need to make the stems. For this, you will need the cinnamon sticks. You will want seven pieces that are about 1 inch in length. So, cut your cinnamon sticks to this length.

Once you have completed cutting them, gently place one stick into the dough, pushing slightly. You want to make sure it is centered and secure. Set each one aside for the moment.

Now, that the pumpkins are made, you can now work on the reserved dough. Take the dough and weigh in 1 gram of Activated Charcoal. Work the charcoal into the dough with your hands until it is mixed in completely.

Next, we get to have some fun with the pumpkin’s faces!  You can decorate your pumpkin bubble bars with the charcoal dough. You can create faces or words with the dough. Simply pull off small amounts of the charcoal dough and press it into the pumpkins to create your pumpkins how you want them to look.

To help create a more realistic look, take a toothpick and create lines in each pumpkin, starting at the top and ending about half way down the pumpkin.

 

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Let the Bubble Bars Setup

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.

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.

Once you are finished, you can roll this into a ball and set it aside for now.

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.

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!

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Preparing Your Work Space

Before you start, we would like to suggest that you make a few preparations. A pair of gloves is recommended, as you will need to mix with your hands. An apron may be useful to protect your clothing.  Also, a hair net and face mask are recommended. Second, you are going to want to prepare all your ingredients and supplies for this recipe. This will ensure that the project runs smoothly and you have all the materials that you need. Finally, you should clean your work space and equipment to make sure that your recipe will be clean and free of dirt.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing the Dry Ingredients

First, we are going to combine all of your dry ingredients into one of your mixing bowls. So, get a medium or large mixing bowl ready. Also, you will need a gram scale in order to measure these ingredients. Then, to your bow,l weigh out 460 grams of the Baking Soda, 410 grams of the Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, 224 grams of the Cream of Tartar, and 72 grams of the Corn Starch.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Mixing the Dry IngredientsPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Mixing the Dry Ingredients

Next, you are going to mix these previously measured ingredients together. You will need to make sure that these dry ingredients are mixed together well before moving on to the next step. Also, make sure you break up any clumps in the powders. This will ensure that each essential ingredient is evenly dispersed and clump-free throughout your entire batch.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing the Wet IngredientsPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing the Wet Ingredients

Now, you are going to weigh your wet ingredients. You can do this part of the recipe one of two ways. You could weigh your ingredients into a small bowl and transfer them into your large mixing bowl of dry ingredients. Alternatively, you can measure the wet ingredients into the same mixing bowl as your dry ingredients. Either way you will need to measure out 200 grams of the vegetable glycerin, 24 grams of the rice bran oil, and 14 grams of the Spring Rain Fragrance Oil.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Combining the Wet and Dry IngredientsPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Combining the Wet and Dry Ingredients

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.

Finally, the gorgeous Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe is finished. Now you can store them, use them for a luxurious bath, or do what ever you’d like. If you are ready to use this beautiful bath product, then just crumble the bubble bar under some warm, running water.

Bath Bombs vs Bubble Bars


This entry was posted in bath and body, bath bombs, Bubble Bars, Natures Garden, Soap making supplies and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

Bath Bombs vs Bubble BarsBath Bombs vs Bubble Bars

We are often asked about what the differences are between a bath bomb and a bubble bar.  The short answer, you will get fizz with bath bombs vs bubble bars which produce foam.  However, below, we will go into a little more detail.  In addition, we will show you a couple of bath bomb recipes and bubble bar recipes.

Bath Bombs vs Bubble Bars: Bath Bombs

First, let’s take a closer look at bath bombs.  We will talk about why they fizz and how to make them.  So, learn how to color them, scent them, and create them.

Bath Bombs:  Why Do They Fizz?

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.

A Few Bath Bomb Tutorials: Bath Bombs in a Jar

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.

But, this won’t make your nails stronger. Safflower Oil, on the other hand, is amazing for helping your nails become healthier and grow quicker. Since this cosmetic oil contains quite a bit of nutrients, like vitamin E and essential fatty acids, this is a great oil for rejuvenating our nails. These nutrients will condition the nails to provide a healthy look and feel. But, that’s not all. This cosmetic oil will lead to nail growth, as the oil provides nutrients that nails need to grow.

Galaxy Bubble Bar Recipe Prepare You Work Area

Prior to starting it is important to be prepared. You will really want to make sure your work space is clean and sanitized before you begin creating your bubble bars. We also recommend wearing an apron, your safety gloves, a face mask, and a hair net while preparing this recipe. Having a clean and sanitized work space will assure to keep your Galaxy bubble bars nice and clean. In addition, get out any ingredients or equipment that you will be using and place them in your work area. Having everything you need at an arm’s reach will help the process go more quickly and smoothly.

Galaxy Bubble Bar Recipe Prepare Your Dry IngredientsGalaxy Bubble Bar Recipe Prepare Your Dry Ingredients

First, you are going to weigh out your dry ingredients. In total, you will have four dry ingredients you will be weighing out. You can use measuring cups but we recommend using a scale that will allow you to weigh in grams. In a mixing bowl, you will want to add 460 grams of baking soda, 410 grams of sodium cocoyl isethionate, 72 grams of corn starch, and 224 grams of cream of tartar. Next, you want to mix together all the ingredients. This can be done with a mixing spoon, but we always find it easier to use our hands. Also, use your hands to break up any clumps you may find throughout the powder mixture. Clumps will not be your friend during this process.

If you have never used sodium cocoyl isethionate or SCI for short, you should definitely give it a try! Sodium cocoyl isethionate will leave your skin feeling super soft. Also, sodium cocoyl isethionate is great for sensitive skin. We highly recommend giving sodium cocoyl isethionate a try. It is a wonderful SLS alternative that truly is amazing!

Galaxy Bubble Bar Recipe Prepare Your Wet IngredientsGalaxy Bubble Bar Recipe Prepare Your Wet Ingredients

Next, you are going to be preparing your wet ingredients. For this step, you will have a total of three wet ingredients. So, get your bowl of dry ingredients and tare the weight on the scale. Alternatively, you could weigh these ingredients in a separate bowl before adding it to the dry ingredients. This could be helpful for those worried about pouring too much, as it could alter your recipe. So, in a large mixing bowl, blend 200 grams of your vegetable glycerin, 24 grams of the safflower oil, and 14 grams of Natures Garden’s Grape Happy Camper Fragrance Oil.  Once again, while you can use the volume measurements above, we highly recommend using weighted measurements.  By weighing your ingredients in grams, you will get a more accurate measurement and an overall better outcome.

Now, add your wet ingredients to the mixing bowl containing the dry powdered ingredients. Once again, go ahead and use your hands to mix the ingredients. Also, make sure you get all the clumps out. Keep mixing the wet and dry ingredients until you get a dough like consistency. You want to make sure your dough is not too crumbly. If it becomes crumbly, you can add a little bit more vegetable glycerin. However, you want to be very careful when adding the vegetable glycerin. If you end up adding too much vegetable glycerin, your dough will become too wet and the recipe may not dry properly. Make sure you are super careful when measuring and mixing your dry and wet ingredients.

 

Galaxy Bubble Bar Recipe Separating Your DoughGalaxy Bubble Bar Recipe Separating Your Dough

Next, we are going to separate the bubble bar dough you just made into three bowls. So, you will need three of your mixing bowls. In a later step, we will be adding a different colorant to each bowl. Although for now, you just need to make sure while separating the dough into three bowls, the are equally divided to include 1/3 in each bowl. They don’t have to be exactly even, just a rough 1/3 in each bowl will work. However don’t let your big mixing bowl go too far, you’ll need it again in a later step. Now for the fun part! Start getting excited!

Next, we will be adding color. In each of the three bowls, you will be adding one of Natures Garden’s three FUN Soap Colorants. In the first bowl, add five grams of neon blue FUN Soap Colorant. Then, use your hands to mix the blue colorant into the bubble bar dough. Now, with clean gloves, add five grams of Natures Garden’s ultramarine violet FUN Soap Colorant to the second bowl. Lastly, in your third bowl, add five grams of the neon pink soap colorant.  While wearing clean gloves, mix the colorants into the final bowl of dough. Once you have mixed each portion of dough, roll them into a ball and place each one back in their bowl. Remember you may need to change gloves for each color. This will prevent the colors from mixing with each other prematurely.

Now, you will need the large bowl you were using earlier in the recipe. Go ahead and place your pink bubble bar dough, blue dough, and purple dough ball in your large bowl. Place them next to each other in the bowl but not directly on top of each other. Then, press down on the dough balls to flatten each color dough ball completely. You can overlap slightly as you press on each ball. The goal is to fill the bowl completely.  When we begin scooping we will scoop across the bowl to allow us to get a little bit of each color.

Next, scoop the dough using your small stainless steel scooper. While scooping the dough with your stainless steel ice cream scooper, make sure you get a little bit of the pink dough, the blue dough, and the purple dough color in the ice cream scoop. Then, release each scoop onto a piece of parchment paper or on your silicone baking mat. This recipe will make about thirty of the small ice cream scoops.

Now, let’s add some sparkle! We used Natures Garden Diamond Dust Mica Pigment to add some shimmer to the Galaxy bubble bars. This will give your handcrafted bubble bars a silvery white sparkle. While this is totally optional, we thought it was the perfect finishing touch to really give the bubble bars the true Galaxy feel. So, sprinkle your bubble bar scoops with Natures Garden diamond dust mica powder. While making the recipe, we used about two grams of diamond dust pigment. But you can use as much or as little as you would like.

 

Galaxy Bubble Bar Recipe Allowing Them to SetupGalaxy Bubble Bar Recipe Allowing Them to Setup

Finally, you will just need to let your bubble bars setup.  I know you want to use them right away, but you will need to be patient. It can take a few days and in some cases as long as a week for them to setup.  While setup will not take as long a typical rolled bubble bar, for us they just took a few days. It all depends on the environment they are setting up in. You will know they are ready when they feel completely dry.  If you try to pick your bubble bars up too soon, they may fall apart in your hands. So, make sure you allow a few days for the bubble bars to completely harden before moving them or packaging them. Your finished product should turn out like the picture shown. Look at how awesome and vibrant the colors turn out! The diamond dust mica powder adds a great look to these bubble bars.
