A Closer Look at Some of the Ingredients Used

Before we begin, let’s look at some of the Natures Garden products that we will be using in this soap making recipe.  We will look at these ingredients and talk a little more about each one in depth, below.  For those familiar with these products, you can go ahead and begin.

Ritzy Bath GelRitzy Bath Gel

The Ritzy Bath Gel from Natures Garden is a premade base.  In fact, it can be used right out of the jug.  This bath gel base allows you to create a quick bath and body product that work wonderfully.  It should be noted though, some fragrance oils can thin the base.  In order to counteract this, you can use a thickener, which we will talk about next, to get the base back to the proper thickness.

Xanthum GumXanthum Gum

The xanthum gum from Natures Garden Candle and Soap Making Supplies is a food grade, polysacharide, all natural thickener.  This thickener is designed to maintain transparency.  So, it perfect for products like our Bite Me Bloody Bath Gel.  It will allow your gel to maintain that gel look without turning it cloudy.   Xanthum gum can be used in products such as bath gel, shampoo, bubble bath, lotions, creams, shower gels, and liquid soaps.  Just a small amount of xanthum gum goes a long way.  In fact, you will only need .1-1% xanthum gum needed to thicken a thinned bath and body product.  When using xanthum gum, you will need to create a slurry.  So, you simply mix the powder with distilled water and mix with a hand mixer for about 5 minutes.  If you simply add the powder to your product, it will clump and not thicken.  Once you have mixed your xanthum gum, it should be quickly added to your product.

Da Bomb Soap DyesDa Bomb Soap Dyes

For this recipe, we will be working with the red Da Bomb Soap Dye.  The Da Bomb Soap Dyes from Natures Garden are water based colorants used in soap and cosmetic making.  They are FD&C dyes.  This particular soap dye is the red #40.  So, what make the Da Bomb Soap Dyes perfect for this soap making project?  Well, when used in bath gel, they allow you to maintain a translucent appearance.  In fact, this is also true when the Da Bomb soap colorants are used in a clear melt and pour soap base.  They produce a wonderful vibrant color.  However, when they are placed in a white soap base such as shea butter or goat’s milk mp soap base, they will give the finished soaps a beautiful pastel color.  They are also fabulous in lotions, whipped soap, and slime, giving each product that wonderful pastel color.

The Fragrance Oil Used in the Bite Me Bloody Bath Gel RecipeThe Fragrance Oil Used in the Bite Me Bloody Bath Gel Recipe

Dracula would fall in love with this fragrance oil by Natures Garden! Bite Me Fragrance Oil starts with fresh citrus notes of crisp lime and juicy orange sparkle with effervescent highlights. The citrus notes lead to a luscious blend of berry and cherry in this playful scent. Then, leafy green accents intensify as a base of vanilla creates sweet tones for the fragrance.  Bite Me Fragrance Oil is a Natures Garden original scent.

Top Notes:  black cherry, orange, strawberry, pineapple, lime
Mid Notes:  eucalyptus, violet, lily
Base Notes:  clove, vanilla bean

Did you know?  Count von Count the Muppet vampire from Sesame Street is based on the vampire myth that throwing mustard seeds outside ones door will stop any vampire from entering the home.  This is because, as the myth states, a vampire is compelled to count items, so therefore, the vampire would have to count all of the seeds which would take until sunrise.

So, how do our customers feel about Bite Me Fragrance Oil?  Well, they LOVE it!  Our clients use this berry scent in everything from wax melts to melt and pour soap to scrubs!  In fact it even performs well in CP soap!  Many consider this powerful fragrance oil a must have in their cold process soap line!  It had a perfect pour, no ricing, no acceleration, no separation, discolors to a light tan, very strong, a must have for all lines.

Bite Me Bloody Bath Gel Recipe Preparations

Prior to beginning, you will want to prepare your work area.  So, get all of your supplies out and ready in your clean work area.  In addition, clean and sanitize your packaging materials as well as any utensils that you will be using.  Finally, place the Ritzy gallon pump dispenser on the Ritzy Bath Gel jug.

Weigh Out Your Bath GelWeigh Out Your Bath Gel

First, you will need a deep mixing bowl.  Using a deep mixing bowl will make preparing the handcrafted bath gel much easier.  So, you will need your scale placed in front of you.  Then, place your bowl on the scale and weigh out 27 ounces of the Ritzy Bath Gel.

Color the Bite Me Bath GelColor the Bite Me Bath Gel

Next, we will add the soap colorant to the Bite Me Bath Gel.  So, you will need the red Da Bomb Soap Dye.  Then, to the Ritzy Bath Gel, you will need to add about 15 drops of the red Da Bomb Soap Dye.  Now, you will need to stir the gel to incorporate the color.  However, be careful not to over mix or mix too quickly.  Doing so can cause the base to create bubbles.

Adding the Bite Me Fragrance OilAdding the Bite Me Fragrance Oil

At this time we will be incorporating the scent.  As we talked about earlier, we will be adding Bite Me Fragrance Oil to this bath gel recipe.  If you have not worked with this berry scent in the past, you are missing out!  It happens to be one of my favorite fragrance oils!  So, the easiest way to add the fragrance is with a disposable pipette.  Using a disposable pipette, add 12 ml Bite Me Fragrance Oil to the bath gel.  Using a mixing spoon, blend the ingredients together.  Remember, stir slowly as stirring to quickly can create bubbles.

Adding the Xanthum Gum ThickenerAdding the Xanthum Gum Thickener

Now, you may notice that the fragrance oil has thinned the Rity Bath Gel.  Well, to help thicken the base back up, we will be adding some of the xanthum gum.  In order to do this, we need to first create a slurry  So, since xanthum gum will clump when added to water, we will first need to pre-mix it.  In an empty mixing bowl, add 1/2 tsp of the xanthum gum powder.  Then, and add 1/4 cup of room temperature distilled water.  Finally, use a hand mixer to mix the ingredients.  You will need to mix the two ingredients for about five minutes.  You will notice the mixture begin to take on a gel-like look.  This gel can then be added to the Bite Me scented bath gel in order to thicken it.  How much you add will depend on how thick you would like your finished bath gel to be.  So, simply add a small amount and then stir.  Once you are happy with the thickness, you are ready to move on.

Adding the Bath Gel to the BottlesAdding the Bath Gel to the Bottles

Finally, we are ready to add the Bite Me Bloody Bath Gel to the 8 ounce bottles.  So, you will need three bottles.  Additionally, you will need three pump dispensers.  Finally, you will need your funnel.  So, place the into the opening of one of the bottles.  Then, fill the bottles with some of the bath gel.


Then, remove the funnel and repeat this process with each of the bottles.  Lastly, place a pump on each bottle, trimming the dip tube on each one before placing it in the bottle.

 

Labeling the BottlesLabeling the Bottles

For this project, we decided to create labels for the handmade bath gel.  We then added a fun Halloween themed label to each bottle.

 

We hope that you have enjoyed creating this Bite Me Blood Bath Gel project.  If you have any questions about this project, or any other candle, cosmetic, or soap making questions, feel free to reach out to us.  You can contact us on our HUG Line, through email, or any of our social media sites.  We hope to hear from you soon!
