Bubbling Reindeer Poo Bath SaltsBubbling Reindeer Poo Bath Salts Recipe

The best time of the year is almost here! Spending time with family and exchanging gifts is always a huge part of the holidays. We at Natures Garden wanted to bring some joy to the holiday season this year and show you some fun recipes that you can create with your family! Our Bubbling Reindeer Poo Bath Salts recipe is the perfect Christmas craft to make for yourself, a family member, or a friend. These bath salts smell minty and refreshing while leaving your skin feeling super soft and silky. What could be better than that? Let’s get started on making these Bubbling Reindeer Poo Bath Salts!

Dead Sea SaltDead Sea Salt

In this recipe, you will be using Natures Garden’s Dead Sea Salt High Minerals Fine Ground salt. Dead Sea Salt is a dry, white crystal. This type of salt is named after the Dead Sea, which is found in Israel. The Dead Sea is made up of 29% salt, compared to a 4% salt content in oceans. It is known both for the health and medicinal benefits it brings, as well as the therapeutic effects and benefits it has. Each of these come from the minerals Dead Sea Salt consists of.

Benefits of Dead Sea Salt

Many properties and minerals that are beneficial to the human body can be found in Dead Sea Salt. These are magnesium, zinc, calcium, bromide, and potassium. Magnesium can help combat aging and stress and can calm the nervous system. Zinc is an anti-inflammatory, which soothes skin and helps reduce itching and any inflammation. Calcium can prevent water retention and increase circulation in the body. Bromide helps to reduce built up muscle retention. Lastly, potassium can provide energy to the body.

These minerals make it possible for Dead Sea Salt to be used in many different cosmetic products: soap bars, salt scrubs, bath bombs, air fresheners, and bath salts, which is what we will be discussing today. It is great for skin care treatment as well, including eczema, acne, psoriasis, and wrinkles. Natures Garden sells many other salts to make products from, including Epsom salt, Himalayan pink salt, and Hawaiian black salt. Now that you have a better understanding of the type of salt that will be used in this recipe, we can get into more details of the other ingredients involved.

Diamond Clear Melt Diamond Clear Melt and Pour SoapPour Soap

Another ingredient that we will be working with is the one of our mp soap bases. Natures Garden Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap is made up of 99.5% glycerin and coconut oil that has been purely deodorized and doubly distilled. These ingredients ensure that it is highly moisturizing with superior lathering qualities. All of our soap is gluten free, are not tested on animals, and do not contain any sort of animal fats. This soap is extremely easy to work with because all you have to do is melt it, add fragrance, add color, pour into molds, and take them out once they have cooled.

 

Reindeer Poo Fragrance OilReindeer Poo Fragrance Oil

Our Reindeer Poo Fragrance Oil is a scent that is original to Natures Garden.  This is one of our best selling fragrances! Since Christmas time is coming up, this is a great scent to add to your creations to bring in the true feeling of the season. It is a complex note fragrance, which means that there are multiple layers to the scents that it emits. The opposite of complex note fragrances are single note fragrances, such as strawberry. A single note fragrance has only one scent throughout it, with no variation between layers, which is very unlike this one. The top notes of Reindeer Poo are apples and pears. The middle notes you will experience are eucalyptus, pine, and geranium. The base notes of this fragrance include vanilla, cedar wood, and patchouli. Eucalyptus and pine really give off the smell of a Christmas tree and are the most prominent in this oil. When they are all combined, it creates a holiday-filled scentsation.

BUBBLING REINDEER POO BATH SALTS RECIPE

Other Ingredients & Equipment You’ll Need:
Mixing Bowls (3)
Mixing Spoon
Spatula
Microwave
Cake Pan
Wax Paper

Total Recipe Weights:

120 grams Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap
186 grams Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate- SCI
744 grams Dead Sea Salt
52 grams Reindeer Poo Fragrance Oil
10 drops Brown Oxide FUN Soap Colorants
6 drops Black Oxide FUN Soap Colorant
4 grams Ultramarine Blue FUN Soap Colorant

Before you start on making this recipe, it is important to make sure you have a clean and sanitized work area. Also wash your hands and sanitize all of your packaging materials. We also suggest that you wear gloves, protective clothing, and a hair net while preparing this recipe.

Preparing the Melt and Pour SoapPreparing the Melt and Pour Soap

Preparing our melt and pour soap is the first thing we are going to do for this recipe. We want to color it brown in order for it to be used as the poo portion of our final product. Use a scale to weigh out 120 grams of the diamond clear melt and pour soap. Then, you are going to melt the soap base in the microwave in 30 second intervals, until it is in a liquid state.  Once it has had enough time to fully melt, add ten drops of the black oxide colorant and six drops of the brown oxide FUN Soap Colorant. Our soap colorants do not take too much of an application to create the pigment you are looking for. In fact, 1/2 ounce of our liquid soap colorants will cover ten pounds of soap! After it has been added, stir your new mixture to incorporate the colorants fully.

Next, you are going to add six grams of the Reindeer Poo Fragrance Oil. Then, once again, mix everything together to blend the fragrance oil. Let’s get into the specific properties of this fragrance!

Pour the Soap Into Your MoldPour the Soap Into Your Mold

Now, we are going to pour the melted soap base, in a thin layer, either onto a pan that is lined with wax paper or into a silicone mold.  We decided to use the four cavities of the silicone 4 loaf soap mold.  Allow the soap enough time to get mostly setup.  You will need to give it time to set up without waiting too long, or it will no longer be warm.

A Variety of Molds

There are so many different molds to choose from at Natures Garden! If you wanted to make this recipe even more fun, you could use something besides the silicone 4 loaf soap mold to let your soap form in, such as embeds. We sell some different molds that can make this recipe even better for the holidays! Some of the options that we have are our Christmas Tree and Bulbs Embed Mold, Small Cross Embed Mold, Ornament Embed Mold, and our Gingerbread Man Mold Market Molds. Using any one of these molds could take these bath salts or other candle and body product recipes you are creating to the next level! We have many other non-holiday molds to choose from as well, you can find all of our soap molds here.

Shaping the MP SoapShaping the Soap

Now, use your hands to rip the molded soap into strips that are approximately ½” x 3”. We would not suggest using a knife to slice the soap because you do not want it to look too perfect or pristine. By ripping it, it looks more natural. After you have ripped your soap into these strips, roll them up and place them between the palms of your hands. Then, roll them between the palms of your hands rapidly to give them the look of natural poo. Keep repeating this process until all of your soap has been used.

Creating the Powdered Snow PortionCreating the Powdered Snow Portion

Finally, we will create the powdered portion of this recipe! First, you will need two bowls.  One will remain white in color, while the other will be colored blue.  To make the powdered portions, start by adding 372 grams of Dead Sea Salt to each bowl. Then, add 23 grams of Natures Garden Reindeer Poo Fragrance Oil. Finally, you will need to add 93 grams of Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate to each bowl. This is a sodium salt ester or a fatty acid that derives from coconut oil. It creates a wetness, it solubilizes oils, and reduces surface tension. It can also be used to help with the property of foaming, which makes this product helpful.

Add the Blue Colorant to the Bath SaltsAdd the Blue Colorant to the Bath Salts

Next, you are going to add four grams of the Ultramarine Blue FUN Soap Colorant.  Use your hands to combine the contents of each bowl separately. Start with the bowl that will remain white in color. Mix each of the bowls until all of the contents are fully mixed and ensure that each of them are free of any clumps.

Incorporating the Reindeer Poo Melt and Pour SoapIncorporating the Reindeer Poo Melt and Pour Soap

Now, we will add to our mixture the reindeer poo that we rolled out and formed.  Make sure that you save a few of these pieces for the top of the jars when the bath salts recipe is completed. You will want these for the final look to turn out perfectly!

 

Finishing the Bubbling Reindeer Poo Bath Salts!Finishing the Bubbling Reindeer Poo Bath Salts!

Finally, we will begin adding our mixture to our jars. This recipe creates enough product to fill four 8 ounce jars. This is a perfect amount of bath salts because you can give three as gifts and keep one for yourself! Begin by scooping a layer of white powder mixture into your first jar. Then, add a layer of blue.  Continue layering until you have filled your jar.  Lastly, place a few of the pieces of poo on top.  Then, move on, filling your remaining jars.

Your homemade bubbling reindeer poo bath salts are now ready for you, friends, and family to use!  When you are ready to use them, simply place a few scoops from the jar under your warm running bath water, it will break apart and create a bubble bath!

Reindeer Poo CandleMore Fun With Reindeer Poo Fragrance Oil

If you enjoy making this bath salts recipe, we have a couple more things that you can make using Natures Garden Reindeer Poo fragrance oil! The first is our Reindeer Poo Candle Recipe, which has two layers to it. The first layer is a blue dyed palm wax, while the second is Joy Wax that resembles the white snow. To top it off, we added reindeer poo along with cute little reindeer embeds! This craft can be fun to make either for yourself or it can be given as a gift.

Reindeer Poo Scented Play DoughThe second recipe that you can try out different from the bath salts is our Scented Play Dough Recipe. This could be a great activity to do with families and children around the holidays. It will create five colored and scented play dough balls to play and make crafts with. The colors we used are red, blue, cream, green, and yellow. The scents that we used with fragrance oils are Cotton Headed Ninny Muggin, Jack Frost, Snowman Balls, Mrs. Claus Cookies, and Reindeer Poo. We hope that these give you a better idea of the different and fun ways that this fragrance oil can be used for the holiday season!

The Dead Sea is known for its Dead Sea salt; which is said to help heal the body.  Dead Sea salt contains the following beneficial minerals:  Potassium, Magnesium, Bromide, and Calcium Chloride.  The magnesium found in Dead Sea salt helps to calm the nervous system, and helps combat aging, water retention, and stress. Potassium provides the body with energy.  Bromides help to reduce muscle tension.  Calcium increases circulation, and helps prevent water retention. Dead Sea salt is used to make scented bath salts, in some cosmetics, and to make soap salt bars.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: Hawaiian Black Salt Coarse GroundBubbling Bath Salts Recipe: Hawaiian Black Salt Coarse Ground

Hawaiian black sea salt has a brilliant black color and silky texture.  The salt is from the Pacific sea, and is combined with activated charcoal. This compliments the natural salt flavor and adds numerous health benefits to the salt.  This salt is considered Kosher, all natural.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: Total Recipe Weights

410 grams Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate- SCI
420 grams Dead Sea Salt
60 grams Hawaiian Black Salt Coarse Ground
41 grams Cool Cilantro Fragrance Oil
4 grams Kelly Green FUN Soap Colorant
4 grams of 24K Gold Mica Pigment

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: Weighing Out the Hawaiian Black Salt

To begin, you will need a small bowl.  Then, weigh out 60 grams of the coarse Hawaiian Black Salt.  I chose to leave this portion scent free.  Since it is black, I worried the oil might cause the activated charcoal that is naturally present in the salt to bleed into other layers.  So, simply weigh out the salt and set the bowl aside.  We will need it when we begin layering our bubbling bath salts recipe.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: Weighing Out the Dead Sea Salt

First, you will need a deep mixing bowl.  You will need to weigh out 420 grams of the Dead Sea salt.  If you notice any clumps in the salt, use your hands to break them up.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: Adding the Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate

Now, we will be adding the Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, or SCI, to the mixture.  So, tare out your scale and add 410 grams of the SCI.  Again, if you find any clumps, be sure to break them up.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: Adding the Cool Cilantro Fragrance Oil

The next step is adding the fragrance oil.  You want to add your fragrance oil directly to the same mixing bowl.  So, to your mixing bowl, add 41 grams of Natures Garden’s Cool Cilantro Fragrance Oil.  Then, using your hands, mix the ingredients together.  Continue to mix until everything is evenly and fully combined.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: Separating the Bath Salts

Next, we will begin separating our bath salts.  You will two additional bowls.  In the first bowl, add 208 grams of the salt mixture.   To the second bowl, you will also add 208 grams of the salt mixture.  The remaining salt mixture can stay in the same bowl.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: Coloring the Bath Salts

Our layered bubbling bath salts recipe will be colored in four different ways.  First, we will use a FUN Soap Colorant from Natures Garden.  Then, we will leave one layer its natural color.  Our third layer in the foaming bath salts will be colored with a shimmering 24K gold mica pigment.  Lastly, our final layer is our Hawaiian black salt.  Hawaiian black salt is naturally colored with activated charcoal, so we will not need to color that layer either.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: Coloring the Green Bath Salts

We will begin with the bowl of our largest portion of bath salts.  Your largest portion of the bath salts will be colored with the Kelly green FUN Soap Colorant from Natures Garden.  So, to the largest portion of bath salts, add 4 grams of the Kelly green FUN Soap Colorant.  Then, use your hands to mix the colorant completely with the salt mixture.  Also, make sure the mixture is free of any clumps.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: Coloring the Gold Bath Salts

Next, you will begin coloring your gold bath salts.  So, in the bowl containing one of the two smaller portions of bath salts, we will add mica.  To this bowl, add 4 grams of your 24K gold mica pigment from Natures Garden.  Then, mix the mica into the bath salts using your hands.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: The Uncolored Bath Salts

Next, you simply need to know that the remaining smaller bowl of uncolored bath salts will be left as it is.  However, I do suggest mixing the the bath salts with your hands at this time.  As you are mixing, check for any clumps.  If you find clumps break them up before we begin layering our bath salts in our jars.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: The Coarse Hawaiian Black Salt

Finally, since Hawaiian black salt is already black in color, we will not need to do anything with the salt.  It is naturally perfect just the way it is!

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: Prepare Your Jars

Before we begin packaging our layered bath salts, we will need to prepare our jars.  This recipe will make four 8 ounce jars of bubbling bath salts.  So, go ahead and get your 8 ounce jars out at this time.  Place all four in front of you.  You do not need your lids at this time.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: Layering the Bubbling Bath Salts

Now, we will begin layering the bubbling bath salts.  While we use four different colors, most colors will be used multiple times.  We used two layers of green, two layers of white, and two layers of gold.  The black will be layer a single layer right in the center of the jar.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: The First Green Layer

We will begin with our first green layer.  Start by putting a layer of green bath salts on the bottom of each of your jars.  When looking at your jar, this layer should be about 1/4″ wide.  Once each of your four jars has a green layer, you are ready to move to the next layer.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: The First White Layer

Our next layer will be the uncolored bath salts.  This layer should be about half as thick as your green layer.  Go ahead and place a white layer directly on top of your green layer.  Place a white layer in each jar.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: The First Gold Layer

Now, you will add your first gold layer.  The gold layer should be just as thick as the white layer.  So go ahead and add a layer of your gold bath salts to each jar.

Bubbling Bath Salts Recipe: The Black Salt Layer
