Rose Bath Bomb Recipe: Prepare and Sanitize

Before you begin working on your rose bath bomb recipe you may want to make a few preparations. First, make sure that you have all of the ingredients and equipment that you’re going to need for this recipe. Further, you may want to clean your equipment to make sure it is ready to use. Second, you will need to clear and clean a space for you to work. This can be a table, counter top, or any surface that provides enough room to create these bath bombs. Lastly, you will want to add some witch hazel to the spray bottle, as you will need this towards the end of the bath bomb recipe.

Rose Bath Bomb Recipe: Create the Dry Ingredient MixtureRose Bath Bomb Recipe: Create the Dry Ingredient Mixture

First, you are going to want to prepare all of the dry ingredients. So, grab one of the medium mixing bowls and a scale. You will need to weigh out 300 grams of the Citric Acid
and 600 grams of the Baking Soda. Additionally, you will need to include an herb powder. So, weigh 10 grams of the Bentonite Clay Powder and add it to the mixture.

After all of these cosmetic ingredients are added to the bowl, you will need to mix them together well. So, you will need to use a gloved hand to blend everything together evenly. Also, make sure that you break up all the clumps that may have formed. Once everything is evenly mixed, you can set this bowl aside and move on to the next step.

Rose Bath Bomb Recipe: Preparing the Wet Ingredients

Next, you will need to prepare the wet ingredients for this recipe. So, you will need another medium mixing bowl. Then, you will need to add the cosmetic oil and the fragrance oil. First, measure 18 grams of the Burgundy Rose Fragrance Oil and add it to the bowl. Then, weigh and add the 18 grams of the Jojoba Oil. After these two lovely ingredients are added to the bowl you can move on to the next step.

Rose Bath Bomb Recipe: Combine the Wet and Dry IngredientsRose Bath Bomb Recipe: Combine the Wet and Dry Ingredients

Now you are ready to combine both the wet and dry ingredient mixtures. Once you add your oils to the dry ingredients you will need to mix everything together. So, use a gloved hand to fully incorporate all of the ingredients. Again, make sure to break up any clumps that form. Once the ingredients are evenly dispersed throughout the mixture, you can set the bowl aside and move on to the next step in the process.

Rose Bath Bomb Recipe: Adding the Cosmetic Herb

Next, you are going to be working with the red rose buds and petals. For this recipe we are going to add the herb to one end of the recipe and not have any rose petals mixed into the bath bomb dough mixture. Since we are going to have the rose petals in one place in the bath bomb, we are going to add this herb to the bath bomb mold first. So, you will need to put a pinch of the  dried rose buds herb into each of the six bath bomb mold halves. 

One thing to pay attention to is that the bath bomb molds have a top and a bottom. So, you will want to be sure that you choose the same side from each of your bath bomb molds, which means that they will all look the exact same. This is important to make sure that you don’t mess up the half and half appearance. Otherwise, you could end up with a bath bomb that doesn’t have any of this cosmetic herb.

Rose Bath Bomb Recipe: Spraying the Bath Bomb Mixture

Now, you are ready to prepare the bath bomb mixture for the bath bomb molds wholesale. So, you will begin spraying the mixture with your bottle of witch hazel. As you spray the mixture you will need to mix everything together with gloved hands. This will ensure that the witch hazel is being full incorporated and help prevent one area from getting sprayed too much. If you add too much of this ingredient at one time, then you can end up accidentally activating your other ingredients in the bowl. This can hinder the performance of your bath bombs so you will want to be careful and spray slowly. You will know that you can stop once the mixture reaches a certain consistency. Once the mixture gets to be the consistency of crumbly dough, you can move on to the next step.

Rose Bath Bomb Recipe: Filling the Bath Bomb Molds

After, you are ready to fill your bath bomb molds. So, take the half of the molds with the rose petals. You will need to pack the dough mixture into the bath bomb tightly. Once all six of these molds are filled, you can move on to filling the other half of the mold. Again, you will need to pack the mixture into the mold very tightly. This will ensure that the ingredients stick together and that the bath bomb holds its shape after being removed from the mold. Once all the ingredients are packed into the molds, you are ready to move on to the last step in making your bath bombs.

Rose Bath Bomb Recipe: Rose Bath Bomb Recipe: Finishing Up the Bath Bombs

Finally, you are nearly done with your homemade bath bomb recipe. Now, you will need to combine the two halves of each bath bomb mold. So, lightly spray each half with witch hazel. One half should have the dried rosebuds in it and the other should be just white bath bomb. Then, you can press the two halves together until that mold snaps shut. Once the mold is going to stay shit, you can set the bath bomb in a place where it can set up completely. Now, you will need to repeat this step with all the bath bomb mold halves. After, you should have six bath bombs that are setting up. This part of the process can take anywhere from a few days to a couple weeks. It all depends on the humidity level that day and the typical levels of your climate.

However, you will know that your bath bombs are set up once they have completely hardened. At this point they are finally ready to use! So, you can pop the bath bombs out of the mold and use them right then for a lovely bath experience. Also, you can use you bath bomb packaging ideas to prepare them for storage. Alternatively, you can leave the bath bomb in the mold until it is ready to be used.

Almond Body Cream a Closer Look at the Ingredients Used

Almond Fragrance Oil is amazing for a lotion.  It is an almond scent that is similar to a popular brand.  Our almond scented oil is a true almond aroma and a Natures Garden best selling fragrance oil!

Shea butter not only naturally contains vitamins, it also acts a humectant. In addition, it is often used in the medical industry as a base for many ointments due to its antimicrobial, antioxidant, and anti inflammatory properties.

Sweet Almond Oil is light, moisturizing, and easily absorbed into the skin. This means you will remain moisturized without the extra grease some creams and lotions can leave.

Macadamia Nut Oil is wonderfully nourishing for dry skin, leaving it soft and smooth.  In addition, it is high in omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. It also has high levels of antioxidants. Finally, just like sweet almond oil, it is easily absorbed by the skin, without the greasy feel.

Silky Emulsifying Wax is an emulsifier that helps your oils and butters mix with your water based ingredients.  In addition, this particular emulsifier will leave your skin feeling silkier compared to other types of emulsifiers.

Vitamin E Oil is used in this lotion recipe as an antioxidant. So, what exactly does this mean? Oils, like the carrier oils used in this almond body cream recipe, will go rancid and turn brown over time. Natures Garden carries pure Tocopherol T-50 vitamin E oil that is used to slow this process.

Stearic Acid is used in both creams and lotions. Stearic acid acts as a thickener in this product, and in other cosmetic recipes. Without stearic acid, this cream would not have the wonderful thickness that we love.

Optiphen preservative is used to prevent the growth of things like bacteria, yeast, and mold. Now, some believe that vitamin E oil can be used a preservative.  However, vitamin E is not a preservative, it cannot prevent bacteria growth.

Almond Body Cream RecipeAlmond Body Cream Recipe Preparations Preparations Prior to Starting

Before you start making your almond body cream recipe, make sure you have everything you need near your work station. This recipe will create five 8 ounce jars of lotion. So, you will want to get five of your 8 ounce jars out, along with five 70/400 straight smooth white lids. Additionally, you are going to want to make sure your work area, packaging materials, and equipment are cleaned and sanitized. At this time you also will want to get out any ingredients you will be using and place them in your work area. Taking these little steps ahead of time will ensure that making this recipe will go as smoothly as possible. Finally, we recommend wearing gloves, a hair net, and an apron when preparing this recipe. So, go ahead and put those on at this time.

 

Almond Body Cream Recipe Phase 1: The Water PhaseAlmond Body Cream Recipe Phase 1: The Water Phase

First, you will need to prepare the water needed for your homemade lotion. So, you are going to need to weigh out at least 850 grams of distilled water. While the recipe only calls for 706 grams of distilled water, you always want to account for the water that evaporates when you are heating it on your stove top. Remember, it is always better to have too much water than not enough. So, if you are over the 850 grams, that is okay, we will be weighing the portion of the water we will be using for the cream later. Now, go ahead and place the water into a pot and place the pot on the stove. Heat your water to at least 180 degrees Fahrenheit. You will need to keep the water at 180 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 20 minutes. The heat will destroy any bacteria that is in the water. After 20 minutes, you can now remove your water from the heat source. Finally, you will weigh out the water that you will be using for the almond cream. So, weigh out 706 grams of the heated distilled water from your initial 850 grams of distilled water.

 

Almond Body Cream Recipe Phase 2: The Oil PhaseAlmond Body Cream Recipe Phase 2: The Oil Phase

Next, weigh out all of the following ingredients: 80 grams of stearic acid, 48 grams of silky emulsifying wax, 80 grams of sweet almond oil, 36 grams of macadamia nut oil, and 20 grams of shea butter. You will be melting the oils, butters, and waxes using the double boiler method. You will need two pots, one larger than the other. Next, in the larger pot, add a few inches of tap water. Now, place the larger pot, containing the water, on the stove top over medium heat. Then, place all of your oils, butters, and waxes you weighed out into your smaller pot. Finally, put your smaller pot filled with all your weighed out ingredients into the larger pot containing the water. This will create a double boiler. Lastly, melt and heat your cream ingredients to 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Be sure to stir occasionally as you are melting the ingredients.  Stirring will prevent scorching of the oils. In addition, it will ensure an even temperature throughout the waxes, butters, and oils.

Almond Body Cream Recipe Phase 3: The Mixing PhaseAlmond Body Cream Recipe Phase 3: The Mixing Phase

Once the temperatures of your water, along with your oil, wax and butter mixture are both at about 140 degrees Fahrenheit, place them both into a deep mixing bowl. For this bowl, the deeper the better so you don’t lose any of your mixture as you are blending. Now, use your stick blender to blend your water and other ingredients together. You will need to mix very well. You will find that while stick blending the ingredients, the mixture will turn white in color. This is a great sign. It means your almond body cream is starting to emulsify. Continue to stick blend until your lotion begins to emulsify.  Then, in the next step, we will be adding a few more ingredients.

Almond Body Cream Recipe Phase 4: The Cool Down PhaseAlmond Body Cream Recipe Phase 4: The Cool Down Phase

Last, are entering the final phase, phase 4. We refer to this as the cool down phase. During this phase, your handmade body cream will really begin to take shape. Allow your mixture from phase 3 to cool to 120-140 degrees Fahrenheit. Once the temperature of the cream has cooled to this temperature, you will be adding a few more ingredients. However, first, I would like to point out the importance of temperature.  When it comes to adding you preservative, it is extremely important to pay very close attention and add it at the correct time.  If you add a preservative at temperatures above 140 degrees Fahrenheit, the preservative will burn off.  This will leave your finished product unprotected.  A preservative prevents the growth of bacteria in the product.  Now, if you add the preservative below 120 degrees Fahrenheit, you may notice the preservative will separate from the lotion or cream. So, just remember to pay close attention to those temperatures and your cream will turn out perfectly!

Almond Body Cream Recipe Phase 4: The Cool Down Phase

Now, since your temperatures are correct, you are ready to add the last few ingredients. You are going to need to add 14 grams of your optiphen preservative,10 grams of vitamin E oil, and 12 grams of Natures Garden’s Almond Fragrance Oil. Once these are added, you will once again, use your stick blender to mix your ingredients together. You want to make sure you have all three ingredients mixed thoroughly and evenly into the body cream. As your almond body cream cools, it will continue to thicken to a cream consistency. You will want to stick blend the body cream periodically as the almond cream is cooling. Each time you stick blend the cream, it will get thicker. Once your almond cream reaches room temperature, it will be a thick luscious body cream.

Finally, now that your almond body cream has cooled and reached room temperature, fill each of your five 8 ounce jars and place the smooth straight lid on top of each of the jars. There are a few different ways you can fill the jars. When we created our cream, we used a bowl with a spout. So, we just simply slowly poured our cream right into the jars. Another option is using a spoon to scoop the almond body cream into each jar. Alternatively, you can also use a Ziploc bag, cutting the corner to create a decorating bag, and fill the jar that way. This homemade cream recipe will make approximately five of the 8 oz jars.

Almond Body Cream Recipe Using the LotionAlmond Body Cream Recipe Using Your Handmade Cream

When creating this body cream, we used our Almond Fragrance Oil but you can always use another body safe fragrance oil if you would like. In addition, we chose to keep the body cream its natural color. However, you can add color if you wish to. If you do decide to color this recipe, you will want to use one of our Da Bomb Soap Dyes. You will just need to add a couple drops at a time until you get the color you are looking for! Alternatively, you can infuse herbs to naturally color your homemade cream lotion. There are just so many options, you can truly make this craft unique to you!  The sky is the limit!
