Sandalwood Bath Bombs Ingredient Spotlight

Prior to preparing the sandalwood bath bomb recipe, let’s look at a few of the ingredients that we will be using today. Below, we will look at the scent, citric acid, pink salt, and a couple of the natural colorants that we will be using.

Sandalwood Fragrance OilSandalwood Fragrance Oil

This Nature’s Garden fragrance oil is a fan favorite. It is a strong and natural scent. Sandalwood fragrance oil will make some of the best soaps and lotions, but it goes so well in candles as well. Our customers love the distinct scent. Its robust earthy smell will leave an impression! The base notes are a wonderful blend of woody cedar and sandalwood. The simple mix of rose and jasmine for the top notes balance the fragrance oil perfectly.  This simple earthy fragrance says it all once the sandalwood bath bomb hits your tub!

Jojoba OilJojoba Oil

Did you know that Jojoba oil is actually a liquid wax? It’s used in a lot of lipsticks, lip glosses, lotions, and other bath products. This luxurious oil will produce a substantial lather in handmade soap making recipes and has amazing moisturizing qualities. Additionally, jojoba oil stays shelf stable longer than most other moisturizing oils.  We also have a blog about the tremendous benefits of jojoba oil.

Rose Clay PowderRose Clay powder

Rose clay powder is a gentle, natural clay that is amazing for almost any skin type! Most people refer to it by “pink clay”. Rose clay exfoliates and removes toxins from the skin. It can reduce irritation and inflammation! Rose clay is used for all kinds of cosmetics and other body products. It provides critical minerals for your skin, while also naturally coloring your products! This is a perfect way to change up your next project or even make your favorite recipe without other colorants.

Citric AcidCitric Acid

Citric acid is found naturally in citrus fruits of all kinds including lemons, oranges, grapefruits, and especially limes! It is a weak, natural acid that is used in cosmetics to lower the pH balance in certain formulas. It’s also really common in the bath product industry for bath bombs. This is one of the base ingredients that make it fizz once it comes in contact with the water! A lot of other industries use this as an ingredient as well. Food, beverage, and cleaning companies use this in all types of products. Citric acid is also found in a lot of foods that we consume every day. It has so many uses, can you name one?

Himalayan Pink Salt CoarseHimalayan Pink Salt Coarse

Did you know that Himalayan Pink Salt is one of the earth’s purest salts due to the location where it is mined? It’s found in seabeds that were once surrounded by lava! Many people know this product for its use in food. However, the cosmetic industry uses pink Himalayan salt for many types of products as well. Some products include scrubs, bath bombs, bath salts and cosmetics! This natural salt has many therapeutic qualities. It can help ease sore muscles, relax the body, ease arthritis, and help many other skin conditions. It has tremendous amounts of important minerals for your body.

Cocoa PowderCocoa Powder

Cocoa powder is a product of the cocoa tree that is native to Central and South America. The fruits only grow for a third of the year and get picked when they are a yellow-orange color.  The cocoa pods are harvested to make all kinds of products. Common products for cocoa powder are skin products, shampoos, conditioners, and many more beauty products! Cocoa powder helps hair become smoother and moisturizes your dead ends. Some believe it may even help with hair loss due to stress. This ingredient will help your skin to repair damaged areas. Did you know that the Aztecs and Mayans thought that the cocoa tree would bring them immortality?

Before You Begin Preparing the Sandalwood Bath Bombs

The best place to start with the sandalwood bath bomb recipe is gathering all of your ingredients and equipment. Also, clean and sanitize your work area, equipment, molds, and your packaging supplies. It is suggested that you wear gloves, protective clothing, and a hair net while making this recipe. Before you start, fill one of the bullet bottles with witch hazel and place a fine mist sprayer on top. Finally, you do not want to prepare this recipe in a humid area. Bath bombs can pull moisture from the air. This can cause a bath bomb to react and start to fizz.

Preparing The Dry IngredientsPreparing the Dry Ingredients

In a large, clean, and dry mixing bowl, weigh out your citric acid and baking soda. Then, mix the two ingredients thoroughly. Make sure there are no clumps! Clumps in the dry ingredients will leave this mixture unevenly distributed. A sifter or a fine mesh strainer can help this process, which is optional. When you are sure that it is evenly combined, set this bowl of ingredients off to the side.

Preparing the Wet ingredientsPreparing the Wet ingredients

Use a separate small mixing bowl. Weigh out the wet ingredients, then add the jojoba oil and the fragrance to this bowl. Stir together until they are completely combined.  

 

Adding The Wet Ingredients To The DryAdding the Wet Ingredients to the Dry

Next, you will be adding the oils to your dry ingredients. The trick is adding them slowly, mixing with your hands as you go.  You want the wet ingredients to evenly be mixed into the dry.  Do your best to work out the clumps as much as possible. Once you have finished mixing everything together, divide the bath bomb mixture in half into two separate mixing bowls. Then you will be ready to start the coloring process!

Creating the Pink Bath Bomb MixtureCreating the Pink Bath Bomb Mixture

With one of the portions of the mixture in the mixing bowl, add the rose clay and the three drops of Tomato Red FUN soap colorant from Natures Garden. Now that the colorant is in the mixing bowl, thoroughly combine by using your hands to incorporate the coloring. You want to have an even color all the way through the mixture.

Spraying the Pink Bath Bomb Mixture with Witch HazelSpraying the Pink Bath Bomb Mixture with Witch Hazel

Once you are confident that it’s well incorporated, you will need the spray bottle of witch hazel. As you mix with your hands, begin to spray the mixture slowly. You are looking for a dough-like consistency. Be careful not to add too much at a time! You do not want to over activate the bath bomb. If it becomes too wet, it will not fizz in the bathtub.

Creating the Brown Bath Fizzy MixtureCreating the Brown Bath Fizzy Mixture

With the pink bath bomb mixture done, it’s time to create the brown bath fizzy mixture. Start by adding your cocoa powder and both colorants. Once those are in the mixture, make sure you spread the colorant throughout the entire bowl using your hands. You want to make sure you do not have any dark and light spots!

Spraying the Brown Mixture with Witch HazelSpraying the Brown Mixture with Witch Hazel

Again, now that it is combined completely, start spraying the ingredients with the witch hazel. Make sure that you do not soak the mixture. Lightly spray until it is at the desired consistency. A good way to test it is when you squeeze it with your hands, it will have a crumbly dough consistency. Now that you are done with this part of the recipe, you will want to move on to molding them fairly quickly.

Filling the Bath Bomb Molds

It is finally time to begin filling the bath bomb molds. We will be adding pink salt to one half of the mold. We will add the brown mixture to the same half and the pink bath fizzy mixture to the other half.

Adding the Himalayan Pink Salt to the Bath Bomb MoldsAdding the Himalayan Pink Salt to the Bath Bomb Molds

Start by placing about a gram of Himalayan coarse pink salt into the half of the mold that you will add the brown bath bomb mixture to. This recipe will create 6 handmade bath bombs.  So, you will need to prepare six bath bomb molds, filling one half of each set.

 

Filling Brown Half of the Bath Bomb MoldFilling Brown Half of the Bath Bomb Mold

On the same side that you added the pink salt, you will want to put the brown mix in. Fill it to the top and pack it down. By making sure the mixture is tight in the mold, it helps keep the bath fizzy together.

 

 

Packing The Pink Side Of The Sandalwood Bath BombsFilling the Pink Side of the Bath Fizzy Mold

Next, begin filling the pink side of the bath fizzy mold. Make sure that the mold is completely filled and packed down. Pack the mixture tightly and evenly.

 

Putting the Sandalwood Bath Bombs TogetherPutting the Sandalwood Bath Bombs Together

Now that both sides are filled, spray each half lightly with witch hazel. Then, press both halves together. The molds will lock together which keeps them in place. Once all of your molds are filled, allow the bath bombs to setup and harden. It helps to let them sit overnight.

 

Finishing And Packaging the Bath BombsFinishing And Packaging the Bath Bombs

Now that your bath bombs are hardened, you are ready to use them! Simply place one bath bomb into a relaxing bath and let them fizz as you soak your worries away.  These sandalwood bath bombs will have you smelling  and feeling fantastic!

 

If you are using these as a gift, you can package them in the mold. You can even add a bow and a name card! They make the perfect gift for a special occasion! If you want to reuse the mold, you can simply place the finished product into bags or wrap them. The options are endless! While storing these, make sure that they are in an airtight container. Remember, any moisture will cause these to react.
