Then, you are going to divide your bubble bar dough mixture into three separate portions. Each of these three portions of the dough will be made into a different color for this cosmetic recipe. You will want to make sure that these three portions each have about the same amount of the dough mixture. Then, you need to roll each portion into a ball. After, you will want to place each balled up portion into its own bowl.

Bubble Bar Scoops Recipe: Prepare the White PortionBubble Bar Scoops Recipe: Prepare the White Portion

First, you are going to prepare the white portion of this bath recipe. This portion of the bath scoop is going to be white and uncolored. So, you can leave this portion of the dough without any of the cosmetic colorant. All you need to do for this portion is roll it into a ball. Then, you can place this ball of dough in a medium mixing bowl and set the bowl aside for you to use in a later step.

Bubble Bar Scoops Recipe: Prepare the Pink PortionBubble Bar Scoops Recipe: Prepare the Pink Portion

You will want to continue to flatten your dough until the top resembles a freshly opened container of Neapolitan ice cream. Once your colors have been flattened, you are ready to move on to the next step in the process.

You will want to start on one side of the bowl and move your way across the bowl through the other colors. Your goal should be to get a little bit of all three colors in a single scoop. While you are scooping the dough, you will need to pack the dough into the ice cream scoop a bit to make sure that the dough will hold its form. Once you have the dough packed, you are ready to release it from the ice cream scoop. As you create the bubble bar scoops, you will need to place each of them into a piece of parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. You will need to repeat scooping and placing on either your paper or mat until all of the bubble bar dough has been used up.

After you have made these preparations, you will be ready to work on making this homemade lotion recipe!

Dreama Lotion Recipe: Prepare Your Water

First, you are going to want to prepare the water for this recipe. Before you begin, you will need to make sure that you have enough water to make your homemade lotion.
