Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Preparations Prior to Starting
First, you will need the two empty white 8 ounce PET bullet bottles. In the first bottle, add your rubbing alcohol. In your second bottle, put the witch hazel. Then, place one of your 24/410 white fine mist sprayers on each bottle. You can set these aside for the moment we will come back to them in a bit. Next, we recommend wearing an apron, hair net and gloves when you prepare the Golden Clover Bath Fizzies. If you’re anything like me, you will get messy! Go ahead and put those on before you start mixing. In addition, begin to melt the coconut oil 76. You can melt the coconut oil by placing your sealed bottle or jug in a bowl of warm tap water. Since coconut oil 76 has a low melt point of 76 degrees, it will not take too long for it to melt. I only needed about 5 minutes for mine to melt.
Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Weighing Out the Dry Ingredients
Now you will need your scale. Using your scale, set to weigh in grams, add the baking soda. You will need 263 grams. Then, add 5 grams of your French green clay powder. Lastly, you want to add 68 grams of your corn starch. Use your hands to mix the ingredients together thoroughly. Also, be sure to break up any clumps you may find in the bowl as you are mixing.
Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Adding the Wet Ingredients
Next we will weigh out and add all of the wet ingredients. This includes your fragrance oil, coconut oil 76, and yellow oxide color. First, weigh out 30 grams of the coconut oil 76 you began melting earlier. Add it to your bowl of dry ingredients. Again, use your hands to combine the ingredients evenly and fully. Now, add 10 grams of Natures Garden’s Ginger Lime Fragrance Oil. Mix well. Finally, add the 5 grams of FUN Soap Colorant Yellow Oxide. Use your hands to incorporate your color. Make sure you mix everything fully and evenly.
Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Adding the Citric Acid
The last ingredient we will be adding is the citric acid. It is the combination of baking soda and citric acid added to water that creates the fizzing action of the finished bath bomb. To the bowl containing the other ingredients, add the citric acid. You will need to add 132 grams. Once you have it in the bowl, you will once again need to use your hands to incorporate everything together.
Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Preparing the Mixture for the Molds
For this step you will want to get the silicone shamrock mold out and the bottle of witch hazel you prepared earlier. Now, begin lightly spritzing the Golden Clover Bath Fizzy mixture with the witch hazel. As you are spraying mix the ingredients with your hands. Continue spray and mixing until you have wet sand like consistency or a crumbly dough. Be careful not to over spray the mixture. If you spray them with too much much witch hazel, you will activate the citric acid. This will leave you bath bomb without fizz.
Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Putting the Bath Fizzies in the Mold
When you are ready, begin adding the mixture to the mold. You want to make sure you pack the molds tightly. This recipe will make four gold bath bombs shaped like shamrocks. Once you have filled four cavities of the silicone mold, allow the bath bombs to set up overnight. Since silicone molds are super flexible, removal is a snap. Simply press gently on the bottom of the mold. They will come right out for you. You can turn the mold upside down and press as well. However, if you do it this way make sure you have a piece of cardboard or something similar under the mold. If the mold drops, it will likely crack.
Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Making them Shine
For this step you will need the bottle of rubbing alcohol you prepared earlier in the recipe. You will also need a mixing bowl. I used a medium sized bowl. It will catch the mica as you sprinkle your fizzy. Begin by spraying the first bath fizzy lightly with rubbing alcohol. Then, hold it over the medium sized bowl. Next, sprinkle Natures Garden’s 24k gold mica pigment over the bath bomb. Continue sprinkling the 24k gold mica pigment until the entire shamrock is covered with mica. Finally, gently shake off any extra mica into the bowl. Repeat this process until each clover fizzy is covered in gold.
Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Using your Handmade Bath Fizzy
Finally, when using the gold bath fizzies, simply place one in your bathtub. Then, let it fizz and sparkle. However, we should mention, your tub will likely be slippery when you are getting out. Be extra careful. It might also require a little extra cleaning to your bathtub, but it is well worth it! You will shimmer and glow all day long! Plus, your skin we thank you for the coconut oil treat!
