Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Total Ingredient Amounts Needed

132 grams Citric Acid
263 grams Baking Soda –  Sodium Bicarbonate
68 grams Corn Starch
30 grams Coconut Oil 76
10 grams Natures Garden’s Ginger Lime Fragrance Oil
5 grams French Green Clay Powder
5 grams FUN Soap Colorant Yellow Oxide

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

Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Weighing Out the Dry IngredientsNow 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

Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Adding the Wet IngredientsNext 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

Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Adding the Citric AcidThe 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

Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Preparing the Mixture for the MoldsFor 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

Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Putting the Bath Fizzies in the MoldWhen 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

Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Making them ShineFor 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

Golden Clover Bath Bombs Recipe Using your Bath FizzyFinally, 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!

How to Make Foaming Sugar Scrub


This entry was posted in bath and body, bath products, foaming sugar scrub, Fragrance Oils, Natures Garden, whipped soap base' and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

foaming sugar scrubFoaming Sugar Scrub Recipe

Natures Garden recently started carrying a new product; whipped soap base.  Needless to say, everyone has been super busy testing away with this new and fun ingredient.  We have created several foaming recipes using this new base, and every single one has been a success.  This new base is everything that we had hoped for and more.

When it came to the category of exfoliation with the whipped soap base, we of course thought of granulated white sugar first.  We wanted to make a foaming sugar scrub that would leave your skin silky smooth.  The gentle exfoliation that sugar would provide was perfect.  The rich creamy lather that the whipped base provides was also a sure fire winner too.  Our goal was that with a little work in creating this foaming sugar scrub recipe, we would be able to provide a great finished product that gently exfoliates and leaves your skin feeling moisturized and velvety smooth.

Here is how to make your very own scented foaming sugar scrub!

Ingredients & Equipment You’ll Need:
Whipped Soap Base
Any Body Safe Fragrance Oil (We selected Yeah for Yummy Fragrance Oil)
Any Fun Soap Colorant (Coloring is optional, but we felt coloring our foaming sugar scrub added an extra element of fun to the mix!)
Sugar
Scale
Bowl
Spoon
Spatula
Hand Held Mixer
Deep Mixing Bowl

Total Recipe Weights
454 grams of Whipped Soap Base
456 grams of Sugar
46 grams Yeah for YUMMY Fragrance Oil
2 drops Fun Soap Colorant -Tomato Red

The Steps

Clean & Sanitize your work area and all of your packaging materials. It is suggested that you wear gloves, protective clothing, and a hair net while preparing this recipe.

Step 1:  Using a scale, weigh out your whipped soap base and place into a bowl.  Set aside. 

Step 2:  In a separate bowl, weigh out your sugar. Then, add 46 grams of fragrance oil and 2 drops Fun Soap Colorant Tomato Red.  Using your spatula, fold the fragrance oil and soap colorant into the sugar until all of the fragrance oil and colorant has been incorporated into the sugar.  Set aside.

Step 3:
Next, using your hand held mixer, start to whip the whipped soap base.  You will notice the batter will start to appear like whipped frosting;  when you have reached this point, turn off the mixer and add the sugar mixture to the whipped soap base.

Step 4:  Once again with the spatula, begin to fold the sugar into the whipped soap base.  You want to thoroughly mix this to incorporate it well.

Step 5:
  Then, turn the mixer on and whip again.  Using your spatula, clean the sides of the bowl to ensure all of the mixture has colorant showing in it.  Continue to mix.

Step 6: When the mixture again looks like whipped frosting stop beating.  Set the bowl aside and allow it to set up for at least 5 minutes.

Step 7: Finally, using a spoon scoop the foaming bath scrub into your 4 oz clear PET jars and lid.

Your foaming sugar scrub is now ready to use!  Enjoy!

You will totally love how great your skin feels after using this foaming sugar scrub recipe.  Not only is this recipe super easy to make, but it takes very little time, and is a great gift to give loved ones this holiday season.  You can scent the foaming sugar scrub in any one of Natures Garden’s fragrance oils that are body safe.  Also, feel free to add the extra element of cuteness by sprinkling your foaming sugar scrub with decorative sprinkles, or layering different colors of the foaming sugar scrub in your jars.  With this recipe, where the fun stops is up to you!
