Now that your dry cosmetic ingredients and the fragrance oil mixture are fully blended together, you are ready to separate the mixture into portions. You will need to separate your cosmetic mixture into three, even portions. So, you will want to use two additional mixing bowls and move some of your mixture to have an equal portion of this mixture in each bowl. Each of these portions will be a different color for your bath recipe.
Bacon Bath Bomb Recipe: The First Portion of the Mixture
First, you will have a mixture portion that will remain uncolored. So, this portion of the mixture will be white in the final bath bomb mixture. Now, you can set this bowl of uncolored mixture aside for the time being.
Bacon Bath Bomb Recipe: Coloring One Mixture Portion
Now, you will want to choose one of your two remaining portions of this cosmetic mixture to color. You will be using both Red Oxide and Brown Oxide to this cosmetic mixture. Then, add a small amount of the Red Oxide FUN Soap Colorant along with a few drops of the Brown Oxide FUN Soap Colorant to this bowl. You can use a toothpick to add a small amount of the Red Oxide to your mixture. After adding these cosmetic soap colorants, you are ready to mix everything together. Again, you will want to use gloved hands to mix the colorant fully into your bath bomb mixture. Continue mixing your cosmetic ingredients until the color has been evenly blended.

Bacon Bath Bomb Recipe: Activate Your Bath Bomb Mixtures
Before you can add your mixtures to the bath bomb mold, you will need to activate each of your three mixture portions. So, grab one of the bowls of mixture and begin to lightly spritz the mixture with witch hazel. After a few spritzes with the witch hazel, you will want to use a gloved hand to mix the ingredients together. You will continue to mix and spray witch hazel until the mixture feels like crumbly dough in your hands. You will want to be careful not to over spray your mixture! Once you get the right consistency, you will repeat this process with the two remaining bowls of the bath bomb mixtures.
Bacon Bath Bomb Recipe: Begin Filling Your Bath Bomb Molds
Now, you are ready to begin filling up your bath bomb molds. For each of your bath bomb molds, you will need to use these three colors to create a layered bath bomb. We suggest that you use a specific order for the mixture colors. First, you will add a small amount of your darkest colored mixture to the mold. Next, you will add a small amount of the other colored mixture. Then, you will add some of the uncolored mixture to the mold. You will want to continue layering in this order until the bath bomb half is full. Of course, you will want to repeat this process with the remaining bath bomb mold halves until you run out of your mixture portions.
Bacon Bath Bomb Recipe: Combining the Bath Bomb Halves
Once all of your bath bomb mold halves are filled you are ready to combine these bath bomb molds. So, take two of your filled bath bomb halves. Then, you will want to lightly spritz each of the halves. After you have sprayed each of the two halves with witch hazel, you will push the two halves together until the halves snap shut. Once the two halves are attached, you can set this bath bomb mold aside. So, you will want to repeat this process to put all the remaining halves together.
Bacon Bath Bomb Recipe: Letting Your Bath Bombs Set Up
Now your bath bombs are just about ready for you to use! However, you need to let your bath bombs completely set up before using your finished product. Depending on your climate, this could take anywhere from a day or two to week. Once your bath bomb has completely hardened, you are ready to use your finished product!
