Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Preparing Your Work Space

Before you start, we would like to suggest that you make a few preparations. A pair of gloves is recommended, as you will need to mix with your hands. An apron may be useful to protect your clothing.  Also, a hair net and face mask are recommended. Second, you are going to want to prepare all your ingredients and supplies for this recipe. This will ensure that the project runs smoothly and you have all the materials that you need. Finally, you should clean your work space and equipment to make sure that your recipe will be clean and free of dirt.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing the Dry Ingredients

First, we are going to combine all of your dry ingredients into one of your mixing bowls. So, get a medium or large mixing bowl ready. Also, you will need a gram scale in order to measure these ingredients. Then, to your bow,l weigh out 460 grams of the Baking Soda, 410 grams of the Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, 224 grams of the Cream of Tartar, and 72 grams of the Corn Starch.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Mixing the Dry IngredientsPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Mixing the Dry Ingredients

Next, you are going to mix these previously measured ingredients together. You will need to make sure that these dry ingredients are mixed together well before moving on to the next step. Also, make sure you break up any clumps in the powders. This will ensure that each essential ingredient is evenly dispersed and clump-free throughout your entire batch.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing the Wet IngredientsPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Weighing the Wet Ingredients

Now, you are going to weigh your wet ingredients. You can do this part of the recipe one of two ways. You could weigh your ingredients into a small bowl and transfer them into your large mixing bowl of dry ingredients. Alternatively, you can measure the wet ingredients into the same mixing bowl as your dry ingredients. Either way you will need to measure out 200 grams of the vegetable glycerin, 24 grams of the rice bran oil, and 14 grams of the Spring Rain Fragrance Oil.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Combining the Wet and Dry IngredientsPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Combining the Wet and Dry Ingredients

Now that both your wet and dry ingredients have been measured into your large mixing bowl you are ready to mix. Use your clean, gloved hands to mix together all of your ingredients. It is important that you mix these together well because you will be dividing the dough into portions. So, you will want to make sure that each portion has about the same amount of the ingredients.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Separating the Batch

Next, you are going to be separating your mixed bubble bar dough into two equal portions. So, grab your two other mixing bowls. You will need to put half of your batch into each of the bowls. You can eyeball the amounts or measure them if your would prefer. But, you just need to make sure that there is about half in each bowl.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe:Preparing the White PortionPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe:Preparing the White Portion

The white portion of your batch is very simple to prepare. The hardest part is making sure that this bowl contains about half of the total dough. After, you have divided up your batch just roll the uncolored bubble bar into a ball. You can leave this white bubble bar dough ball in this bowl until we are ready to roll out the layers. So, you can move on to preparing the other half of this recipe.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Preparing the Pink PortionPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Finish Preparing the Pink Portion

The second portion of the bubble bar dough is going to a bit more fun. While the first portion of this recipe was left uncolored, this section is going to be made a pretty shade of pink. Plus, this half of the bubble bar dough even uses Himalayan Pink Salt. This will create a pretty pink layer that would be wonderful for a diy salt soak. So, lets get started on creating the fun half of this bubble bar recipe!

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding the Colorant to the Pink PortionPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding the Colorant to the Pink Portion

Now, you are going to prepare the other half of your bubble bar dough. So, take this second half and add in three drops of the Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant. This amount is perfect for giving us a pretty shade of pink for this layer of the bubble bar. You will need to use your gloved hands to mix this color into the dough evenly. You will want to want sure that you don’t have any specks of dye left unincorporated. 

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding the Colorant to the Pink PortionPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding the Colorant to the Pink Portion

Now that this portion is colored, you will need to finish up this half of the batch. First, you are going to add in the Himalayan Pink Salt to your dough. So, weigh out 10 grams of the fine ground pink salt. Make sure that you mix this ingredient into the dough very well. Once all of the fine pink salt has been incorporated you can roll the dough into a ball. Now, you are ready for the next step in the process.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Flattening Out the DoughPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Flattening Out the Dough

Next, you are going to be rolling out the dough. Before you start you are going to want to lay down either a silicone mat or a piece of parchment paper. This will be used to roll our bubble bar once we have made our layers. Then, you will need to sprinkle this mat or paper with a bit of baking soda. This will make sure that your bubble bar is easy to roll and doesn’t stick to your mat or paper.

Our outside layer is going to be the pink portion, so you will need to roll this portion out first. You will need to use a rolling pin to flatten out this bubble bar dough. Try to roll the dough into a rectangular shape. Also, you will want the dough to be about a quarter inch thick.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Flattening Out the Second LayerPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Flattening Out the Second Layer

After your first layer has been rolled out, you are ready to flatten out the second layer. So, take your uncolored dough ball and place it right on top of the pink layer. Now, flatten this layer out to match the rectangular shape of the first layer. You will be finished once the layers are about the same thickness and size. But, you don’t need to be exact. The slight imperfections will add to the uniqueness of each bubble bar!

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Creating the RollPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Creating the Roll

Now that your two layers have been made you are ready to roll your bubble bar loaf. So, turn your parchment paper of silicone mat vertically, as shown to the right. Next, you will lift up the edge that is closest to you. You will need to begin to roll the dough onto itself. This process is similar to how you would wrap a jelly roll or pumpkin roll. You will want to go slowly as you roll and continue until all of the dough has been rolled into the loaf.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Topping the Bubble BarPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Topping the Bubble Bar

Once the bubble bar loaf has been created, you are ready to start decorating the top of your bath and body product. Part of the decorating will be done with Coarse Ground Himalayan Pink Salt. You will be sprinkling the top of the loaf with the coarse ground pink salt. You should need about 20 grams of this for the top, but you can use more or less as you see fit. Also, you will need you slightly press the sprinkled pink salt into the top of the loaf. Otherwise, the pink salt will be likely to fall off easily and you will lose all of your pretty shades of pink salt.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Adding The Mica Dust

The other ingredient that you will use to decorate is mica dust. This lovely powder is perfect for creating a bath and body product that shimmers and shines. For this recipe you will use both the 24k Gold Mica Pigment and the Diamond Dust Mica Pigment. Liberally sprinkle the top of your loaf with each mica powder. After, use a craft brush to remove any excess mica. Dusting off the mica will make sure that your bars don’t have streaks of gold mica after you slice your bars.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Slicing the Bubble BarsPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Slicing the Bubble Bars

Now you are ready to slice your bubble bar loaf into pieces! We suggest making each bar somewhere between one inch and two inches. This will make sure you have enough for each bath. Depending on the thickness you choose, you will have about eight individual bubble bars.

Once your slices have been made all you have to do is wait for your bars to set up. Based on how long our bubble bar took, it should take about 48-72 hours, or 2-3 days, for your bubble bars to completely set up. However, this can take longer depending on your climate. You will know that your bars are ready to use when they have hardened.

Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Finished ProductPink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe: Finished Product

Finally, the gorgeous Pink Salt Bubble Bar Recipe is finished. Now you can store them, use them for a luxurious bath, or do what ever you’d like. If you are ready to use this beautiful bath product, then just crumble the bubble bar under some warm, running water. The easiest way to do this is do this is to draw a bath and crumble your bar as the tub is filling up. You are sure to enjoy this lovely bath recipe, especially since Himalayan Pink Salt is so great for your body!
