Lollipop Bath Bomb Recipe: Clean and Prepare

First, you should be aware that this bath and body recipe is best prepared in non-humid climates. While you can try to make a bath bomb recipe in a more humid environment, it may take longer for your finished product to set up and completely harden.

Also, you should clean up your workspace and bath bomb making supplies before you begin to work on your diy bath recipe. First of all, washing your equipment will help to prevent you from accidentally getting your bath bomb recipe dirty. Plus, cleaning up your workspace will give you more space to work that is clean and ready to use. So, creating your yummy candy scented bath bombs will be easier and lead to a cleaner product.

Also, you will want to use disposable gloves for this bath bomb recipe. Wearing gloves will allow you to use your hands to mix your bath and body ingredients. So, it will be easier to mix your cosmetic ingredients thoroughly and evenly. Plus, wearing gloves will help you to keep your cosmetic recipe clean as you are mixing your bath bomb ingredients.

Lollipop Bath Bomb Recipe: Preparing the Bottle of Witch Hazel

Before you begin creating this homemade bath bomb recipe, you will need to prepare a bottle of witch hazel. The bottle of witch hazel will be used towards the end of the process. Witch hazel is used to activate the bath bomb ingredients, which will ensure that your mixture will harden completely. So, you will want to fill up your 8 oz bullet bottle with witch hazel. Then, screw on the spray bottle lid. Now, you can set this spray bottle aside until you need it at a later step.

The first step of this process is to prepare the baking soda. So, you are going to want to weigh out 512 grams of the baking soda and 10 grams of the Bentonite Clay Powder. Then, you will want to add this cosmetic ingredient to your medium sized mixing bowl. Once you have your measured amount of the baking soda, you will need to break up any clumps in this cosmetic ingredient. We would suggest that you use your clean, gloved hands to break up all of the clumps you find. Once this cosmetic powder is completely smooth and free of any clumps, you can move on to the next step.

Next, you are going to add a cosmetic oil to your baking soda. So, weigh out 18 grams of the Apricot Kernel Oil into the mixing bowl. After you add this bath bomb ingredient, you will use your gloved hands to combine the cosmetic ingredients. This cosmetic oil is included to add some conditioning properties to the recipe. So, you will have a fun bath bomb that still cares for your skin.

Lollipop Bath Bomb Recipe: Adding the Candy Scented Fragrance Oil

Now, you will be able to add the sweet candy scented fragrance oil to your mixture. So, measure out 7 grams of the Jammin Rock Candy Fragrance Oil. You can add this scented oil to the mixture and use your gloved hands to combine everything.

First, you are going to want to separate your green colored bath recipe into two equal portions. You will be able to create two bath bombs with this cosmetic recipe. Now, you are going to need to grab two lollipop charms to put in the center of the bath bomb recipe. You will want to take one of the portions of your activated green bath bomb recipe to pack around one of these cute charms. So, use your hands to tightly pack half of the green bath bomb mixture around your lollipop charm. Next, use the other green colored bath bomb portion to tightly pack around the other lollipop charm. Now, set both of these small, green bath bombs aside for now.

Lollipop Bath Bomb Recipe: Adding the Second Layer of Your Bath BombLollipop Bath Bomb Recipe: Adding the Second Layer of Your Bath Bomb

Now that your bath bomb mixture is at the right consistency, you are ready to add the second layer. First, you will need to divide the orange bath mixture in half. After, spray one of your small, green bath bombs. Then, you can begin to pack the orange mixture around the bath bomb. You will pack on the orange mixture like you would build a snowball. You will want to cover all of the green layer, so be careful not to make this layer too thick. Next, you will want to spray and build on the other green bath bomb as well.

Then, you are going to add the last layer to your bath bomb recipe. So, you are going to need to add the witch hazel to your pink bath recipe mixture.

Now, you can pack the pink bath bomb mixture around the orange layer.  Again, you are going to need to pack the layer tightly and be careful not to make the layer too thick. Once the pink layer completely covers the orange layer, repeat the process of spraying and packing with the other bath bomb.

Grape Soda Pop Bath Bomb Recipe: A Note About This Recipe

Since this bath and body recipe is activated by water, you will find that this bath and body recipe is best prepared in climates that aren’t very humid.  If your climate is a bit too humid, your bath bombs might over activate due to the moisture in the air.

Cotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Clean and Sanitize

First of all, we would like to let you know that this bath recipe is best prepared in non-humid climates. While you can try to make this cosmetic recipe in a more humid environment, it may take longer for these bath fizzies to set up and completely harden.

Also, you should clean up your work space and bath bomb making supplies before you begin to work on your diy bath recipe. First of all, washing your craft supplies will help to prevent you from accidentally getting your cosmetic recipe dirty. Plus, cleaning up your work space will give you more space to work that is clean and ready to use. So, creating your sweet cotton candy scented bath bombs will be easier and lead to a cleaner product.

Cotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Before Making Your Bath Bomb

Before you begin this fun bath and body recipe, you will need to prepare a bottle of witch hazel. This bottle of witch hazel will be used later on in the process. This witch hazel will be used to activate the bath fizzy mixture before you fill the bath bombs. So, you will want to fill up your 8 oz bullet bottle with witch hazel. Then, screw on the spray bottle lid. Now, you can set this spray bottle aside until you need it at a later step. 

Also, you will want to use disposable gloves for this bath bomb recipe. Wearing gloves will allow you to use your hands to mix your bath and body ingredients. So, it will be easier to mix your cosmetic ingredients thoroughly and evenly. Plus, wearing  gloves will help you to keep your cosmetic recipe clean as you are mixing your bath bomb ingredients.

Cotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Weighing the Baking SodaCotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Weighing the Baking Soda

First, you are going to want to weigh out 460 grams of the Baking Soda powder. Then, you will want to add this cosmetic ingredient to your medium sized mixing bowl. Once you have your measured amount of baking soda, you will need to break up any clumps in this cosmetic ingredient. We would suggest that you use your clean, gloved hands to break up any of these clumps. Once the baking soda powder is completely smooth and free of any clumps, you are ready to move on to the next step.

Cotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Adding Cosmetic Clay and Citric AcidCotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Adding Cosmetic Clay and Citric Acid

After your baking soda is free of clumps, you are going to want to add the remaining cosmetic ingredients to your medium mixing bowl. So, you will need to add 350 grams of the Citric Acid as well as 10 grams of the Bentonite Clay Powder. Then, you will use your gloved hands to mix these three dry cosmetic ingredients together. After these bath bomb ingredients are mixed together well, you are ready to move on to the next step of this process.

Cotton Candy Fragrance OilCotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Adding the Fragrance Oil

Next, we are going to be adding the delicious aroma of our Cotton Candy Fragrance Oil to the bath bomb recipe. This scented oil has an aroma that blends the scent of fresh, juicy strawberries and scrumptious notes of French vanilla. You will need to weigh out 14 grams of this yummy wholesale fragrance oil. Then, you will add this scented oil to your cosmetic mixture. After, you will mix the sugary sweet aroma of this fragrance oil with your cosmetic ingredients. You can use your gloved hands to mix this scent fully into your cosmetic ingredients.

Cotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Coloring Your Cosmetic Recipe

Now that your cosmetic ingredients are mixed together, you are ready to color your bath recipe. So, you are going to want to separate your bath bomb mixture into two equal portions. Once you have two mixing bowls that each contain half of the total cosmetic mixture, you are ready to add the cosmetic colorants to each of your bath bomb mixtures. Since pink and blue are two of the most iconic cotton candy colors, we are going to use these two colors for this bath and body recipe!

Cotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Coloring the Pink PortionCotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Coloring the Pink Portion

Next, you are going to need to grab one of the two bowls that contain half of the mixture portion. This half of the mixture is going to be the pink half of your finished bath bomb. In order for you to get a pretty pink color, you will need to add the neon pink FUN Soap Colorant to this bath bomb mixture. You will want to add a few drops of this colorant and mix everything together. After the colorant is mixed in, you can decide whether you need to add a few more drops of the colorant. After adding this cosmetic colorant to your mixture, you will use your gloved hands to fully mix the colorant into your other cosmetic ingredients until you have an even pink color.

Cotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Coloring the Blue PortionCotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Coloring the Blue Portion

Now, you are ready to color the remaining portion of your total bath and body mixture. First, you are going to need to change your gloves to avoid accidentally mixing in the pink colorant from the previous portion. After you have clean gloves, you will be ready to mix in the Neon Blue FUN Soap Colorant. You will want to mix in a few drops of this cosmetic colorant into your mixture until you have an even blue color. Then, you can decide whether you want to add more colorant to get a brighter, more vivid blue color.

Cotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Activating Your Mixture

Now that both halves of your cosmetic mixtures are scented and colored, you are ready to activate your bath bomb mixtures. For each of these two mixtures, you will need the bottle of witch hazel that you have previously prepared. Then, lightly spray the witch hazel into the bowl and mix the ingredients together with your gloved hands. You will want to continue to spray and mix until you have a consistency of crumbly dough. You will need to be careful not to spray too much witch hazel, as you could potentially activate the bath bomb mixture in the bowl. After one of the mixture portions are at the right consistency, you will need to repeat this step with the other portion.

Cotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Filling the Bath Bomb Molds

Next, you are ready to fill up your bath bomb molds. You will want to firmly press the bath bomb mixture into the bath bomb mold. Once the bath bomb mixture is pressed tightly into the mold, you can fill all the remaining bath bomb mold halves. After you have filled all the halves with the pink, you will want to repeat the process with the blue mixture.

Cotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Note for Filling the Molds

For each bath bomb mold you are going to want to have half pink and half blue. So, you will want to pay attention to which side of the bath bomb mold that you are filling. We would suggest filling the tops of your mold with the pink color and the bottom of the bath bomb mold with the blue color. This method of filling your cosmetic molds will help to make sure that you don’t end up with a bath bomb that is only one color.

Cotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Putting Together Your Bath Bomb Molds

Now that all of your bath bomb halves are completely filled and packed tightly, you are ready to combine the top and bottom of your bath bombs! So, you will need a pink half and a blue half. Each of these two halves will need to be lightly sprayed with witch hazel. Then, you will need to press these two halves together until you can tell that the bath bomb mold snaps shut. You will need to repeat this step with the other bath bomb mold halves until you have about four complete bath fizzies.

Cotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Finishing Up Your Bath Bomb

Before you can remove your bath fizzies from the mold, you need to wait for them to set up completely. If your recipe hasn’t completely hardened before you remove them from the mold, then they may break or even crumble. So, you will want to wait until the fizzies are hard, which can take a few days to a week. The time it takes will depend on the level of humidity in your area. Once your bath and body recipes have hardened, you are ready to use your bath fizzies! If you aren’t ready to use the cotton candy bath fizzies right away, then you can even leave them in the mold for a simple packaging idea!

Cotton Candy Bath Fizzy Recipe: Making Cotton Candy at Home

If you want to try making this delicious treat, then check out Jacques’ Homemade Cotton Candy from the Food Network.

Christmas time is really a hectic time of year. Decorating, card writing, the kids’ Christmas programs and shopping, it’s amazing that it is the happiest time of year! Plus, most of us like to get crafty this time of year. Nothing says love like creating something special with a specific person in mind or a whole bunch of people in mind! If you need some Christmas gift inspiration, then check out some of our favorite Christmas crafts! These crafts are easy to make, yet give the impression that you spent a lot of time creating them. So if you are a busy elf during the crazy holiday season, then give these recipes a try. You will not only impress the people on your gift list, but you will impress yourself as well!

Our Favorite Christmas Crafts: How To Have a Stress Free ChristmasOur Favorite Christmas Crafts: How To Have a Stress Free Christmas

Most of us in today’s world, have the idea that Christmas has to be picture perfect. We watch the movies on the Hallmark Channel and expect our Christmas to be just like on TV.

However, we don’t live our lives scripted. It’s always important to remember that the Christmas tree doesn’t have to look like Martha Stewart decorated it. Our Christmas cookies do not need to look like they came straight out of Bon Appetit magazine. Christmas is a beautiful time to simply spend with loved ones. Those will be the memories that your children can cherish and remember when they grow older. It’s not about how perfect the ornaments were hung on the tree. It’s about the memory you have of each ornament that you hang on those branches. It isn’t about how perfectly edged the icing was on the cookies. It’s about how awesome those cookies tasted no matter how much icing Junior glopped onto the snowman shaped cookie.

Enjoy your holidays! Take some shortcuts when it comes to having friends or family over. It’s okay to have something that’s not made from scratch! Homemade gifts don’t have to say you don’t have the funds to buy elaborate gifts. If you create things for certain people in mind, then you have given something to somebody that says, “I took my time and love to make you something I knew you would enjoy.” That type of Christmas is perfect in every way. Follow this link to read up on how to have a stress free Christmas before you start running in a million directions!

Our first recipe is our Candy Cane Candle Recipe. This is truly a fun candle to have on your tabletop during the Christmas season. This is a simple candle to create. We used our awesome Joy Wax. Joy Wax is a soy/paraffin blend candle wax that is easy to work with, even if you’ve never made candles before. Our Joy Wax has a wonderful hot and cold throw. It has a nice creamy finish and sets up beautifully in your containers. The candy cane candle is layered in pink, red and white with a fluffy, whipped wax topping! Yes, you can create fluffy whipped toppings with this wax. To complete the “candy” theme of the candle, we placed two swirled candy embeds made from our Pillar of Bliss. Pillar of Bliss is also a soy/paraffin blend candle wax that is perfect for creating embeds or wax melts. It hardens up nicely to allow for easy release from molds.

We have scented the candle in our Candy Cane fragrance oil. This scented oil is a yummy blend of peppermint, spearmint, eucalyptus, strawberries and vanilla. This fragrance is a must for any type of Christmas projects you have in mind!

We also used some Peppermint Essential Oil and Vanilla Powder for fragrance. It is a yummy smelling combination! Your skin will be glowing and refreshed after just one use! While we did layer it to have the look of a candy cane, the powders and clays will combine once you start using it, however, it will still smell divine. Just like a stick of peppermint candy!

You just have to have cookies at Christmas time! It’s a necessary thing. So how about some cookies at bath time? Our Christmas Bath Cookies look and smell yummy enough to eat, and are perfect to entice little ones to take a bath! These bath cookies are very similar to bath bombs. The fizz and bubble and will leave your skin feeling soft and smelling good! We have used cocoa butter, mango butter, kaolin clay powder, and baking soda to name just a few of the ingredients. Your skin is going to feel amazing after your bath! We chose our Christmas Cookies fragrance oil that smells exactly like a freshly baked, buttery Christmas Cookie! Of course, cookies need frosting, right? Our “frosting” is our whipped soap that we used some of our FUN Soap colorant.

Create some of our Christmas Wreath Fire Starters and you will be happy you did. This recipe will make 11 cupcake size fire starters and the best thing about these? They are scented! Fire starter logs won’t give you that! We made these starters using Pillar of Bliss and our Christmas Wreath Type fragrance oil.

Additionally, you will want to wear gloves, protective clothing, and a hair net.

Also, you will want to get the witch hazel ready, too. So, you will need to get a bullet bottle and a fine mist sprayer. Now, fill the bottle with your witch hazel and twist on the lid. Now, you can use this spray in a later step to ensure that your bath bombs hold their shape.

Pumpkin Latte Bath Bomb Recipe: Note About Bath Bombs

Another thing that you may want to consider before creating this cosmetic recipe is the humidity. You should know that it can be difficult to create bath bombs in a humid environment. So, you may not want to create your own homemade bath bombs in this type of climate or on a day with high humidity. This extra moisture can make it difficult for your bath bombs to set up and may even prevent the bath bombs from sticking together and holding their shape. So, you may not be able to create good bath bombs in areas of high humidity.

Then, you can mix all of these bath bomb ingredients together. The easiest way to mix these ingredients together thoroughly is with your gloved hands. Once you have mixed the oils into the dry ingredients thoroughly and evenly, then you can move on to the next step in the process.

Pumpkin Latte Bath Bomb Recipe: Adding the Citric Acid

Once these bath and body ingredients have been mixed together well, you can add the citric acid to your cosmetic recipe. This fantastic cosmetic powder one of the ingredients that provide the fizzing fun that bath bombs are best known for having.

Before you move on to the next step you will need to max sure that you include this cosmetic herb into your mixture thoroughly.

Now, you are ready to work on adding the herbal cosmetics for this bath and body recipe. So, you will need to separate this cosmetic mixture into two even portions. Add each of these two bath bomb mixture portions to separate mixing bowls, which is important as you will have to add a different cosmetic ingredient to each of these two mixtures. Once these portions are separated, you can move on to adding these powdered herbs to your portions.

Pumpkin Latte Bath Bomb Recipe: Adding the Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend PowderPumpkin Latte Bath Bomb Recipe: Adding the Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend Powder

First, you can grab one of the two bowls of bath bomb mixture. This first portion will have five grams of the Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend Powder added to it. Then, you will need to use your gloved hands to mix this cosmetic herb into the cosmetic mixture Once the cosmetic herb is fully incorporated, you can set this portion aside temporarily.

Now, you are going to be filling your bath bomb molds. In total, you will need to create seven bath bombs. So, take one of your wholesale cosmetic molds and begin to fill one side with the vanilla bath bomb mixture. Next, take the other half of the same bath bomb mold. Now, you will need to pack this side full with the pumpkin pie spice mixture.  You should fill one bath bomb mold at a time to ensure that you don’t accidentally fill one mold with one solid color. This is important because our bath bomb molds only fit together a certain way and it may be hard to tell the difference once you get going.

Pumpkin Latte Bath Bomb Recipe: Preparing Your Mixture for the MoldsPumpkin Latte Bath Bomb Recipe:

Before you combine the two halves of the bath bomb molds you will need to lightly spray each side of the mold. By spraying each side of this bath bomb mold with witch hazel you will ensure that these two halves stick to each other. So, you will have a whole bath bomb that is one solid piece. However, you will want to be careful with the amount that you spray.

Calendula is a modern Latin diminutive of the word calendae, which means “little clock” or “little calendar.”  It usually blooms along with the full moon or at least once a month. The more commonly known name, pot marigold or the nickname “Mary’s Gold”, refers to the Virgin Mary. These flowers are used in some Catholic ceremonies to honor her.

Calendula Bath Bomb: Using the Witch HazelCalendula Bath Bomb: Using the Witch Hazel

Now that we have everything add in we will be using the witch hazel to help create and form the bath bomb mixture into a dough. Starting with your first bowl, begin spraying the mixture with the witch hazel and using your hands, mix the ingredients together, misting as you go. You should have a crumbly, dough like texture when you are done. Next, you will do the same to the second bowl, misting with the witch hazel and combining the ingredients until you have reached the crumbly dough stage. You are now ready to move on to creating the bath bombs.

Calendula Bath Bomb: Before Making the Bath Bombs

Before you start adding the dough to the bath bomb mold, take a small amount of whole calendula flowers and place them in the bottom of each one half of the molds you will be using. This will add a pretty touch of interest to your finished bath bomb.

Calendula Bath Bomb: Filling the First Half of the  Bath Bomb Molds

Now you can move on to creating the bath bomb. These bath bombs will be layered. So, add a small amount of the mixture that contains the calendula powder. Then, add a layer that contains the whole calendula flowers. You will repeat this process filling one half of each mold.

Calendula Bath Bomb: Filling the Second Half of the Mold

For the second half, it will not have the extra calendula flowers added in. It will simply be the dough mixture. So continuing the layering process and fill the second half until it is completely full, just as you did with the first half of the mold.

Calendula Bath Bomb: Fitting the Two Halves Together

The last step will be fitting the two halves of the mold together, to form the bomb. Take both halves of the bath bomb. Next, mist each half lightly with witch hazel. This will help the bath bomb adhere together. Now, press the two halves together until the mold is closed. Continue filling and layering the remaining bath bomb molds and pressing them together. This recipe will give you 6 bath bombs.

Calendula Bath Bomb: Letting the Bath Bombs Set UpCalendula Bath Bomb: Letting the Bath Bombs Set Up

When you have completed all the bath bombs, you will allow them to set up and harden. This can take anywhere form 24 to 48 hours. It will all depend end on the humidity of your environment. We do suggest that creating your bath bombs is best done in a cool, dry area. Also, keep them in the same cool, dry area while they set up. Creating your recipe in an area that is humid will make the bath bombs difficult to form and set up.

Once your bombs have hardened, you may leave them in the mold, which makes packaging for selling or giving away, easy and fast. However, you may remove them from the mold and package them however you choose.  When your ready to use your Calendula Bath Bomb, simply place it in a nice, warm bath and relax!
