Sandalwood Bath Bombs Ingredient Spotlight

Prior to preparing the sandalwood bath bomb recipe, let’s look at a few of the ingredients that we will be using today. Below, we will look at the scent, citric acid, pink salt, and a couple of the natural colorants that we will be using.

Sandalwood Fragrance OilSandalwood Fragrance Oil

This Nature’s Garden fragrance oil is a fan favorite. It is a strong and natural scent. Sandalwood fragrance oil will make some of the best soaps and lotions, but it goes so well in candles as well. Our customers love the distinct scent. Its robust earthy smell will leave an impression! The base notes are a wonderful blend of woody cedar and sandalwood. The simple mix of rose and jasmine for the top notes balance the fragrance oil perfectly.  This simple earthy fragrance says it all once the sandalwood bath bomb hits your tub!

Jojoba OilJojoba Oil

Did you know that Jojoba oil is actually a liquid wax? It’s used in a lot of lipsticks, lip glosses, lotions, and other bath products. This luxurious oil will produce a substantial lather in handmade soap making recipes and has amazing moisturizing qualities. Additionally, jojoba oil stays shelf stable longer than most other moisturizing oils.  We also have a blog about the tremendous benefits of jojoba oil.

Rose Clay PowderRose Clay powder

Rose clay powder is a gentle, natural clay that is amazing for almost any skin type! Most people refer to it by “pink clay”. Rose clay exfoliates and removes toxins from the skin. It can reduce irritation and inflammation! Rose clay is used for all kinds of cosmetics and other body products. It provides critical minerals for your skin, while also naturally coloring your products! This is a perfect way to change up your next project or even make your favorite recipe without other colorants.

Citric AcidCitric Acid

Citric acid is found naturally in citrus fruits of all kinds including lemons, oranges, grapefruits, and especially limes! It is a weak, natural acid that is used in cosmetics to lower the pH balance in certain formulas. It’s also really common in the bath product industry for bath bombs. This is one of the base ingredients that make it fizz once it comes in contact with the water! A lot of other industries use this as an ingredient as well. Food, beverage, and cleaning companies use this in all types of products. Citric acid is also found in a lot of foods that we consume every day. It has so many uses, can you name one?

Himalayan Pink Salt CoarseHimalayan Pink Salt Coarse

Did you know that Himalayan Pink Salt is one of the earth’s purest salts due to the location where it is mined? It’s found in seabeds that were once surrounded by lava! Many people know this product for its use in food. However, the cosmetic industry uses pink Himalayan salt for many types of products as well. Some products include scrubs, bath bombs, bath salts and cosmetics! This natural salt has many therapeutic qualities. It can help ease sore muscles, relax the body, ease arthritis, and help many other skin conditions. It has tremendous amounts of important minerals for your body.

Cocoa PowderCocoa Powder

Cocoa powder is a product of the cocoa tree that is native to Central and South America. The fruits only grow for a third of the year and get picked when they are a yellow-orange color.  The cocoa pods are harvested to make all kinds of products. Common products for cocoa powder are skin products, shampoos, conditioners, and many more beauty products! Cocoa powder helps hair become smoother and moisturizes your dead ends. Some believe it may even help with hair loss due to stress. This ingredient will help your skin to repair damaged areas. Did you know that the Aztecs and Mayans thought that the cocoa tree would bring them immortality?

Before You Begin Preparing the Sandalwood Bath Bombs

The best place to start with the sandalwood bath bomb recipe is gathering all of your ingredients and equipment. Also, clean and sanitize your work area, equipment, molds, and your packaging supplies. It is suggested that you wear gloves, protective clothing, and a hair net while making this recipe. Before you start, fill one of the bullet bottles with witch hazel and place a fine mist sprayer on top. Finally, you do not want to prepare this recipe in a humid area. Bath bombs can pull moisture from the air. This can cause a bath bomb to react and start to fizz.

Preparing The Dry IngredientsPreparing the Dry Ingredients

In a large, clean, and dry mixing bowl, weigh out your citric acid and baking soda. Then, mix the two ingredients thoroughly. Make sure there are no clumps! Clumps in the dry ingredients will leave this mixture unevenly distributed. A sifter or a fine mesh strainer can help this process, which is optional. When you are sure that it is evenly combined, set this bowl of ingredients off to the side.

Preparing the Wet ingredientsPreparing the Wet ingredients

Use a separate small mixing bowl. Weigh out the wet ingredients, then add the jojoba oil and the fragrance to this bowl. Stir together until they are completely combined.  

 

Adding The Wet Ingredients To The DryAdding the Wet Ingredients to the Dry

Next, you will be adding the oils to your dry ingredients. The trick is adding them slowly, mixing with your hands as you go.  You want the wet ingredients to evenly be mixed into the dry.  Do your best to work out the clumps as much as possible. Once you have finished mixing everything together, divide the bath bomb mixture in half into two separate mixing bowls. Then you will be ready to start the coloring process!

Creating the Pink Bath Bomb MixtureCreating the Pink Bath Bomb Mixture

With one of the portions of the mixture in the mixing bowl, add the rose clay and the three drops of Tomato Red FUN soap colorant from Natures Garden. Now that the colorant is in the mixing bowl, thoroughly combine by using your hands to incorporate the coloring. You want to have an even color all the way through the mixture.

Spraying the Pink Bath Bomb Mixture with Witch HazelSpraying the Pink Bath Bomb Mixture with Witch Hazel

Once you are confident that it’s well incorporated, you will need the spray bottle of witch hazel. As you mix with your hands, begin to spray the mixture slowly. You are looking for a dough-like consistency. Be careful not to add too much at a time! You do not want to over activate the bath bomb. If it becomes too wet, it will not fizz in the bathtub.

Creating the Brown Bath Fizzy MixtureCreating the Brown Bath Fizzy Mixture

With the pink bath bomb mixture done, it’s time to create the brown bath fizzy mixture. Start by adding your cocoa powder and both colorants. Once those are in the mixture, make sure you spread the colorant throughout the entire bowl using your hands. You want to make sure you do not have any dark and light spots!

Spraying the Brown Mixture with Witch HazelSpraying the Brown Mixture with Witch Hazel

Again, now that it is combined completely, start spraying the ingredients with the witch hazel. Make sure that you do not soak the mixture. Lightly spray until it is at the desired consistency. A good way to test it is when you squeeze it with your hands, it will have a crumbly dough consistency. Now that you are done with this part of the recipe, you will want to move on to molding them fairly quickly.

Filling the Bath Bomb Molds

It is finally time to begin filling the bath bomb molds. We will be adding pink salt to one half of the mold. We will add the brown mixture to the same half and the pink bath fizzy mixture to the other half.

Adding the Himalayan Pink Salt to the Bath Bomb MoldsAdding the Himalayan Pink Salt to the Bath Bomb Molds

Start by placing about a gram of Himalayan coarse pink salt into the half of the mold that you will add the brown bath bomb mixture to. This recipe will create 6 handmade bath bombs.  So, you will need to prepare six bath bomb molds, filling one half of each set.

 

Filling Brown Half of the Bath Bomb MoldFilling Brown Half of the Bath Bomb Mold

On the same side that you added the pink salt, you will want to put the brown mix in. Fill it to the top and pack it down. By making sure the mixture is tight in the mold, it helps keep the bath fizzy together.

 

 

Packing The Pink Side Of The Sandalwood Bath BombsFilling the Pink Side of the Bath Fizzy Mold

Next, begin filling the pink side of the bath fizzy mold. Make sure that the mold is completely filled and packed down. Pack the mixture tightly and evenly.

 

Putting the Sandalwood Bath Bombs TogetherPutting the Sandalwood Bath Bombs Together

Now that both sides are filled, spray each half lightly with witch hazel. Then, press both halves together. The molds will lock together which keeps them in place. Once all of your molds are filled, allow the bath bombs to setup and harden. It helps to let them sit overnight.

 

Finishing And Packaging the Bath BombsFinishing And Packaging the Bath Bombs

Now that your bath bombs are hardened, you are ready to use them! Simply place one bath bomb into a relaxing bath and let them fizz as you soak your worries away.  These sandalwood bath bombs will have you smelling  and feeling fantastic!

 

If you are using these as a gift, you can package them in the mold. You can even add a bow and a name card! They make the perfect gift for a special occasion! If you want to reuse the mold, you can simply place the finished product into bags or wrap them. The options are endless! While storing these, make sure that they are in an airtight container. Remember, any moisture will cause these to react.

Foaming Rose Petal Bath Bombs Recipe Sanitize the Work Space and the Equipment Needed

Before beginning working on your craft, you may want to do a little bit of preparation to ensure that the process goes smoothly and stays stress-free. So, clean your work space enough to provide an ample amount of surface area to create your foaming bath bombs. Also, you will want to clean everything that you will be using, such as bowls and the silicone heart soap mold. This will prevent unwanted particles or bacteria from getting into your bath products.

Additionally, you should make sure that your witch hazel is already in the bullet bottle and ready to use. This will ensure that you won’t need to pause the process to locate some witch hazel and a spray bottle. Further, you should try to chose a less humid day or area to create your products as too much humidity can actually cause the bath bomb to activate to soon. This will make it difficult to stick together and make prevent its correct use later on. Now, you should be prepared enough to enjoy creating some gorgeous bath bombs!

First, you are going to prepare your powder ingredients in one bowl. So, tare the weight of one of your medium mixing bowls on the gram scale. Weigh out 264 grams of the Citric Acid, 528 grams of the Baking Soda, and 84 grams of the Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate into this same mixing bowl. Now, use your gloved hands to mix these powdered ingredients well enough to incorporate everything. Also, be sure to break up any clumps that you find while mixing. It is very important to make this mixture as smooth and well mixed as possible.

Next, you will be dividing your powder mixture into two even portions. So, retrieve another of your medium mixing bowls and transfer about half of your previously weighed powder ingredients. This should leave you with about 438 grams of your mixture in each of the two bowls. While you may simply be able to eye the amount, you should make sure to weigh this amount with your scale to be certain that it is separated evenly. Now, you should have the same amount of powder ingredients in each of your bowls. So, you will be adding the rosehips herb to one of your bowls. So, add 5 grams of the rosehips powder to only one of your portions in the mixing bowls. Set these two bowls of your mixtures aside for now.

Then, you are going to prepare the liquid ingredients for this bubbling bath bomb recipe. So, grab two small mixing bowls and tare the weight of one bowl on your scale. The first bowl will have 4 grams of the Moonlight Tuberose Fragrance Oil, 9 grams of the Grapeseed Oil, and 5 drops of the Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant. After everything has been added to one bowl, mix these ingredients together well with a spoon. Later, this colorful mixture will be added to the bowl with the rose hips powder.

Next, you will be combining the liquid ingredients that will be added to the second bowl of powdered ingredients. So, you will weigh 4 grams of the Moonlight Tuberose Fragrance Oil and 9 grams of the Grapeseed Oil into the second small bowl. Later, this mixture will be added to the plain, white powder mixture.

Now, you are going to mix and prepare that pink layer for the mold. So, grab the bowl of dry ingredients that includes the rose hips powder. Add the red colored liquid ingredients to this bowl of dry ingredients. Mix well to incorporate all the scent and color into the dry ingredients. Be sure that use mix well enough to break up dye clumps and evenly disperse the fragrance oil.

Next, you will finish this portion of your bath bomb so you can add it to the mold. So, grab your spray bottle of witch hazel. Now, very lightly spray the pink bath bomb portion with the witch hazel and keep on mixing with your gloved hands as you spray. Continue to spray and mix until you have a crumbling dough consistency, but be careful not to over use the spray or it could activate your bath bomb prematurely. We have noticed that this recipe will use less witch hazel than our typical bath bomb recipe. So, be wary of the amount of witch hazel used. You can always add more, but once you have added too much the bath bomb is ruined before you have a chance to finish creating them. After you reach the crumbling dough consistency, quickly move on to the next step of filling the mold.

After you achieve the right amount of witch hazel, you are ready to move on to filling your silicone molds. So, get your six-cavity Silicone Heart Soap Mold and lay it on your work space. Now, pack each of the six cavities about half full with your pink portion of the bath bomb. You will be leaving the other have for the white layer of your foaming bath bomb. Also, make sure that you press down on the mixture as you fill the mold to ensure that it is packed tightly and will hold its shape after it is removed from the soap mold.

Then, you will be preparing the uncolored layer for the bath bomb. So, retrieve your unused bowl of liquid ingredients and the other bowl of powdered ingredients. Now, take the clear liquid ingredients and mix it into your plain white, dry ingredients. Remember to mix well enough to disperse the fragrance oil throughout the entire mixture.

After mixing well, you will spray this portion of the bath bomb with witch hazel until it becomes a crumbly dough consistency. As you know, you will not want to add too much of the witch hazel to your mixture. Once you get the right amount you will be ready to add the white mixture to the mold. Now, spray the previous layer lightly with hazel and tightly pack the white layer on top of the pink layer in each of your six cavities. You will want to pack this layer in well enough to stick to the pink layer and hold its shape after it is removed from the mold. Also, if you don’t pack the mold tight enough you could end up with empty space in the bath bombs.

Immediately, you are going to want to top your bath bombs to make sure the petals and mica adhere. Spray the top of the white layer one last time to ensure that the rose petals stick to the tops. So, take about 2 grams of the rose petals and sprinkle them on top of each of your bath bombs. Now, press your sprinkled rose petals down into the top of your bath bomb slightly. This will make sure that they don’t fall off before you add them to your bath tub. Finally, add a light dusting of the 24 K Gold Mica Pigment and the Diamond Dust Mica Pigment to the top of the foaming bath bomb and rose petals. This will provide a super pretty shimmer!
