Adding Color to the Star Fruit Mango Bubble Bar Recipe

Now you are ready to add the cosmetic soap colorants to your fun bath and body recipe. So, you are going to divide your cosmetic mixture into three different portions. So, you are going to need to have two additional mixing bowls to separate your mixture into. Then, divide your total mixture into three equal portions of the bubble bar mixture.

Creating the Red PortionCreating the Red Portion

For the first portion of the mixture you are going to add some red colorants. So, you are going to need to mix in 15 drops Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorants and
15 drops Neon Red FUN Soap Colorants. Once you have added both of these cosmetic colorants to your mixture you are going to need to use your hands to mix everything together with your gloved hands. Once the color has been thoroughly mixed into the bubble bar mixture, you can set this portion of the bubble bar aside for the moment.

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. After you are able to remove the six bubble bar stars that you have created from the cosmetic mold, you can reuse your cosmetic mold until you have used up all of your bath bomb mixtures. In total, you will end up with fourteen individual bubble bars.

Before you begin the Dreama scented lotion recipe, you will want to make a few preparations. To begin, you will want to gather your lotion recipe ingredients. It can be useful to collect what you need before making your bath and body product to make the process easier. Also, sanitize your equipment to make sure your work area is clean. Further, it is suggested that you wear gloves, protective clothing, and a hair net while you prepare this recipe. After you have made these preparations, you will be ready to work on making this homemade lotion recipe!

Dreama Lotion Recipe: Prepare Your Water

First, you are going to want to prepare the water for this recipe. Before you begin, you will need to make sure that you have enough water to make your homemade lotion. This means that you will need at 425 grams of water. However, we would recommend that you add some extra water to your pot to ensure that you have enough water remaining after boiling. Some of the water will evaporate as it is boiling. It is better to have too much than not enough. You will need to heat the water to at least 180 degrees Fahrenheit. Once you have your water at this temperature keep the water there for about twenty minutes. Now that your water has been boiled to destroy any bacteria that may have been present, you are ready to create your scented lotion recipe!

Dreama Lotion Recipe: Creating the Double Boiler

Next, you are going to want to create the double boiler for this recipe. While you will still need to stir as the oils and butters are melting, the double boiler will be useful for preventing your cosmetic oils from scorching. To create this device you will need two pots that will fit into each other. In the larger pot, you will add a few inches of water, which will be heated to a boil. Next, place your smaller pot into your 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 you cosmetic ingredients to melt.

These wholesale ingredients are perfect for creating a quality and non-greasy homemade lotion. Then, add these cosmetic oils to the double boiler that you had prepared in a previous step. You are going to want to heat these ingredients to around 140 degrees Fahrenheit and stir periodically to prevent scorching.

Now you are going to want to move quickly to over the next couple of steps. Both your oil mixture and your water will need to be around 140 degrees Fahrenheit when you mix everything together. Once your ingredients reach about this temperature, weigh out your water.  Then, combine these bath and body ingredients in a large mixing bowl. You will need to use a stick blender to combine all of these ingredients. As the mixture emulsifies, you will notice that the lotion mixture will begin to white in color.

Dreama Lotion Recipe: Adding the Fragrance OilDreama Lotion Recipe: Adding the Fragrance Oil

At this time, you will need to add 12 grams of the Dreama Fragrance Oil to your mixture. This scented oil has beautiful top notes of oakmoss and lilies. This floral scent continues with middle notes of ylang ylang and jasmine. Finally, this fragrance lays on bottom notes of amber, musk, and sandalwood.

Next, you will want to add the preservative to your homemade lotion recipe. You will need to weigh out 10 grams of the Optiphen Preservative and add it to your lotion mixture. You want to add the preservative when the temperature is between 120-140F.  If the preservative is added at a temperature higher than this, it can burn off.  On the other hand, if it is added a temperature that is too low, it can cause it to separate from the lotion.

The preservative will ensure that your lotion recipe doesn’t become taken over by germs. This preservative protects against bacteria, yeast, and mold. Plus, this ingredient provides an exceptional feel to the finished lotion recipe. Plus, the wholesale preservative available at Natures Garden is paraben-free and formaldehyde-free.

Lollipop Bath Bomb Recipe: Clean and Prepare

First, you should be aware that this bath and body recipe is best prepared in non-humid climates. While you can try to make a bath bomb recipe in a more humid environment, it may take longer for your finished product to set up and completely harden.

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

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.

Lollipop Bath Bomb Recipe: Preparing the Bottle of Witch Hazel

Before you begin creating this homemade bath bomb recipe, you will need to prepare a bottle of witch hazel. The bottle of witch hazel will be used towards the end of the process. Witch hazel is used to activate the bath bomb ingredients, which will ensure that your mixture will harden completely. 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.

Lollipop Bath Bomb Recipe: Preparing the Dry Ingredients Lollipop Bath Bomb Recipe: Preparing the Dry Ingredients

The first step of this process is to prepare the baking soda. So, you are going to want to weigh out 512 grams of the baking soda and 10 grams of the Bentonite Clay Powder. Then, you will want to add this cosmetic ingredient to your medium sized mixing bowl. Once you have your measured amount of the 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 all of the clumps you find. Once this cosmetic powder is completely smooth and free of any clumps, you can move on to the next step.

Next, you are going to add a cosmetic oil to your baking soda. So, weigh out 18 grams of the Apricot Kernel Oil into the mixing bowl. After you add this bath bomb ingredient, you will use your gloved hands to combine the cosmetic ingredients. This cosmetic oil is included to add some conditioning properties to the recipe. So, you will have a fun bath bomb that still cares for your skin.

Lollipop Bath Bomb Recipe: Adding the Candy Scented Fragrance Oil

Now, you will be able to add the sweet candy scented fragrance oil to your mixture. So, measure out 7 grams of the Jammin Rock Candy Fragrance Oil. You can add this scented oil to the mixture and use your gloved hands to combine everything.

Jammin Rock Candy Fragrance OilLollipop Bath Bomb Recipe: Jammin Rock Candy Fragrance Oil

The scrumptious aroma of our Jammin Rock Candy Fragrance Oil has an explosive blend of juicy fruit scents that blend with an irresistibly sweet aroma. The scent has top notes of a sweet jammin’ berry trio of juicy ripe cherries, strawberries, and raspberries harmonized with hints of tangy citrus.

Now, you are going to use your witch hazel to activate your green colored bath bomb mixture. So, add a few spritzes of the witch hazel to your mixture and begin to mix with your gloved hands. You will want to continue to mix and spray until you get a consistency that feels like crumbly dough. Remember to be careful not to overspray.

First, you are going to want to separate your green colored bath recipe into two equal portions. You will be able to create two bath bombs with this cosmetic recipe. Now, you are going to need to grab two lollipop charms to put in the center of the bath bomb recipe. You will want to take one of the portions of your activated green bath bomb recipe to pack around one of these cute charms. So, use your hands to tightly pack half of the green bath bomb mixture around your lollipop charm. Next, use the other green colored bath bomb portion to tightly pack around the other lollipop charm. Now, set both of these small, green bath bombs aside for now.

Lollipop Bath Bomb Recipe: Activating Your Orange Bath Bomb MixtureLollipop Bath Bomb Recipe: Activating Your Orange Bath Bomb Mixture

Next, you are going to add the witch hazel to your orange colored bath bomb mixture. So, you will want to spray and mix with gloved hands until your orange mixture begins to feel like crumbly dough. You will want to mix well as you spray to avoid adding too much witch hazel.

Lollipop Bath Bomb Recipe: Adding the Second Layer of Your Bath BombLollipop Bath Bomb Recipe: Adding the Second Layer of Your Bath Bomb

Now that your bath bomb mixture is at the right consistency, you are ready to add the second layer. First, you will need to divide the orange bath mixture in half. After, spray one of your small, green bath bombs. Then, you can begin to pack the orange mixture around the bath bomb. You will pack on the orange mixture like you would build a snowball. You will want to cover all of the green layer, so be careful not to make this layer too thick. Next, you will want to spray and build on the other green bath bomb as well.

Lollipop Bath Bomb Recipe: Activating Your Pink Bath Bomb Mixture

Then, you are going to add the last layer to your bath bomb recipe. So, you are going to need to add the witch hazel to your pink bath recipe mixture. You will need to use gloved hands to mix and spray the witch hazel. Once you get the right consistency for your pink mixture, you are ready to move on to the next step.

Finally, you are ready to add the last layer to your bath bomb recipe. So, you will need to spray the orange bath bomb. Then, you will need to separate the mixture into two portions. Now, you can pack the pink bath bomb mixture around the orange layer.  Again, you are going to need to pack the layer tightly and be careful not to make the layer too thick. Once the pink layer completely covers the orange layer, repeat the process of spraying and packing with the other bath bomb.

Lollipop Bath Bomb Recipe: Using Your Finished Bath Bomb Recipe

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.

Cucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Prepare and Sanitize

Before you get started on making your homemade bath and body recipe, you will want to make sure that you are properly prepared. First, you will need to make sure that all the equipment that you will need is sanitized and ready for you to use. If any of your necessary equipment isn’t ready to use, then you will need to clean this equipment with soap and water. Also, you will need to make sure that your work space is clean and free of clutter. Another preparation that you will want to make is gathering all of your necessary ingredients. This will make the process of creating homemade lotion easier and even more fun! Once your ingredients, equipment, and work space are ready to use, then you will be ready to get started with this bath and body recipe.

Cucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Double BoilerCucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Double Boiler

The last thing that you are going to want to set up before getting started with your cosmetic recipe is your double boiler. Anyone that already has a double boiler can move on to starting this cosmetic recipe. If you don’t already have a double boiler of your own, then you can make your own with supplies that you likely already have at your home. You will need to use two differently sized pots to create your double boiler. You will want to make sure that the smaller pot will fit into the larger pot. So, you can use the larger pot to hold the boiling water. Then, place your smaller pot inside the larger pot. You will need to make sure that the water won’t boil over. Once your water is boiling you will fill your smaller pot with the cosmetic ingredients that you need to melt.

Cucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Preparing the Water Phase

First, you are going to prepare the water phase for your homemade conditioner. Before you weigh out the water for your cosmetic recipe, you will want to boil the water to kill germs. So, you will need to start with at least 850 grams of distilled water. It is important to have extra water before you begin boiling because some of the water will evaporate. You will need to heat your water to at least 180 degrees Fahrenheit and hold this high temperature for at least 20 minutes. This will help you to destroy any bacteria that could be in the water.

Preparing the Water Phase: Add the Chickweed HerbPreparing the Water Phase: Add the Chickweed Herb

Now, we are going to create a tea using the chick weed herb.  This is just one way to infuse an herb into handmade lotions.  So, we will create a strong tea.  Fill three tea bags with the chickweed herb.  You will need about 3 tablespoons of the herb for each tea bag.  Then, add them to your water as it is boiling.  Chick weed herb is a wonderful herb that is wonderful for dry itchy skin.  American Indians were known for using chickweed for wounds and rashes.  Many use it to help with skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, and boils.  Chickweed helps with cell-proliferation.  This helps wounds heal faster.

Cucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Preparing the Oil PhaseCucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Preparing the Oil Phase

Next, you are going to be preparing the oil phase of your refreshing body cream recipe. So, you are going to need to weigh out some of your cosmetic oils. You will need to use 16 grams of Stearic Acid, 48 grams of the Emulsifying Wax, 80 grams of Argan Oil, 36 grams of Lanolin Oil, and 20 grams of Cocoa Butter. After you have your ingredients measured, you will be ready to begin melting your scented lotion ingredients. Now, you can add all of these cosmetic supplies to your smaller pot. You will want to occasionally stir your ingredients as they are melting to avoid possible scorching. Once all of your body cream supplies are in a fluid state, you are ready to move on to the next step.

Cucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Weighing the Sterilized WaterCucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Weighing the Sterilized Water

Once your water has been boiling for at least 20 minutes you will be ready to use your freshly sterilized water. Now, you can remove your water from the heat source, remove the tea bags, and weigh out 706 grams of your sterilized water. You can add this water to your medium mixing bowl. While you need to wait before mixing the cosmetic oils and water, you can move on to the next step in this bath and body recipe.

Cucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Mixing Your Oil and Water TogetherCucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Mixing Your Oil and Water Together

Before you can mix your cosmetic oils with your prepared tea you need to make sure that these two phases are at the right temperature. The temperature is extremely important to ensure that the cosmetic ingredients emulsify with the water. Otherwise, your finished product will separate and not serve as a good lotion recipe. These two phases should each be at about 140 degrees Fahrenheit before combining the two. Also, you will want these phases to be no more than 10 degrees apart. You can use your candy thermometer to monitor the temperatures. Once you have the correct temperature, you can add both the water and oil to a larger mixing bowl. Then, you can use a stick blender to combine these two phases well. If you notice that your mixture is beginning to turn white as you continue to blend, then you will know that your mixture is emulsifying.

Cucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Adding the Remaining Cosmetic IngredientsCucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Adding the Remaining Cosmetic Ingredients

Now that the water and cosmetic oils have been completely emulsified, you are going to want to let your mixture cool. So, you will want to monitor the temperature until it reaches about 120 degrees Fahrenheit. You will want to be careful that you don’t go any lower than this temperature before you add your remaining cosmetic ingredients. Now you will need to weigh and add 10 grams of the Vitamin E Oil, 14 grams of the Optiphen Preservative, and 12 grams of the Cucumber Mint Fragrance Oil to your mixture. Again, you will want to use a stick blender to mix these newly added ingredients into your previously emulsified mixture.
