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 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 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.
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 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 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!
