Other Ingredients & Equipment You’ll Need:

Rubbing alcohol (in the bullet bottle)
Wax Paper

A Few Additional Preparations

When preparing any type of bath bomb or bath fizzy recipe, it is best that they are prepared in non-humid climates.  Bath bombs fizz when added to water due to the combination of baking soda and citric acid being added to water.  So, when prepared in humid climates the bath bombs can actually react to the moisture in the air itself.   

Prior to making this recipe, pour some of your rubbing alcohol into your 8 ounce bullet bottle in order to be prepared.  Another option is witch hazel.  You can use witch hazel when creating bath bombs as well.  Both will work when creating bath bombs.  However, rubbing alcohol will create a harder bath fizzy.

About the Fragrance Oils

Before we begin, let’s take a look at the scents we will be using.  For this bath bomb recipe we will be working with two fragrance oils to create our candy apple bath bomb recipe.  First, we will use Natures Garden’s Caramel Fragrance Oil.  The second scent that we will be using in our bath fizzy project is the powerful Green Apple Explosion Fragrance Oil.

Caramel Fragrance OilCaramel Fragrance Oil

First, let’s look at Natures Garden’s Caramel fragrance oil.  This scent by  is the aroma of buttery, toffee caramel. It is a great to use by itself or to a wonderful scent to mix with others for creative fragrance blends.  In fact, it is smells wonderful when mixed with our Green Apple Explosion Fragrance Oil.

Green Apple Explosion Fragrance OilGreen Apple Explosion Fragrance Oil

Next, let’s talk about the Green Apple Explosion Fragrance Oil from Natures Garden!  This apple scent is unbelievably strong.  In my opinion, it is the strongest apple scent that we carry here at Natures Garden Candle and Soap Making Supplies. We believe we have quite possibly found the “spunkiest” green apple fragrance oil on earth!  We thought about calling it Granny Smith Apple, but this fragrance deserves a name that “pops” just like its aroma.  Thus, may we present:  Green Apple Explosion! This apple aroma is an NG original scent!

Prepare the Bath Bombs

To begin, we will prepare the bath bombs and allow them to setup before covering them with the melt and pour soap.  So, you will want to put on your apron and gloves before starting.

Recipe Weights for the Green Bath Bomb Portion

182 grams Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate
300 grams Citric Acid
600 grams Baking Soda
9 grams Green Apple Explosion Fragrance Oil
9 grams Caramel Fragrance Oil
4 grams Lime Green FUN Soap Colorant
4 grams Neon Green FUN Soap Colorant

Prepare the Powdered Ingredients for the Candy Apple Bath Bombs Recipe

Prepare the Baking SodaFirst, you will need a deep mixing bowl.  To your mixing bowl, add the baking soda.  Then, use your hands to break any clumps that you may find in the baking soda.   

 

Add the Sodium Cocoyl IsethionateNext, to the bowl containing the baking soda, add the sodium cocoyl isethionate.  Then, use your hands to blend the ingredients together.  Once again, as you are mixing, break up any clumps that you find in the mixture.

 

Add the Citric AcidThe final powdered ingredient that we will be adding is the citric acid.  So, add the citric acid to the bowl.  Then, mix the ingredients together.  Finally, break any lumps found in the mixture apart just as you did before.

Scenting and Coloring the Caramel Apple Bath Bombs Recipe

Coloring the Caramel Apple Bath Bombs Recipe

At this time, we will color and scent the candy apple bath bombs.  So, to the bowl containing the powdered ingredients, add the fragrance oils.  First, you will need to add 9 grams of the caramel fragrance oil.  In addition, add 9 grams of the green apple explosion fragrance oil.  Finally, we will add the two colorants.  So, to the same bowl add 4 grams of the lime green colorant and 4 grams of the neon green FUN Soap Colorant from Natures Garden.  Once you have added the ingredients, use your hands to mix everything together.  You will want to be sure everything is mixed thoroughly before moving on.

Prepare the Candy Apple Bath Bomb Mixture for the Molds

Prepare the Candy Apple Bath Bomb Mixture for the MoldsNow, you will need the bottle of rubbing alcohol that you prepared earlier.  Then, begin spraying the candy apple bath bomb mixture with rubbing alcohol.  You will want to spray in small amounts.  So, spray a small amount of the rubbing alcohol and then use your hands to mix.  Continue spraying and mixing.  You will want to repeat this process until it reaches a point that you can squeeze the mixture and it holds a form.  However, be careful not to overspray the mixture.  If this happens, your bath bomb will become too wet and it will not fizz when it is added to the bathtub.

Fill the Bath Bomb Molds

Fill the Bath Bomb MoldsOnce your bath bomb mixture is at the proper consistency, you can fill the bath bomb molds.  You will need a total of seven sets of bath bomb molds.  Begin filling each of your molds.  Make sure you are packing the molds tightly.  You will need to fill a total of seven molds. 

Putting the Candy Apple Bath Bomb TogetherWhen you have filled all seven molds, you can put the two halves together.  Before pressing the two halves together, spray each one with rubbing alcohol.  Then, press them together.  Allow the bath bombs to setup overnight before moving on.

Adding the Lollipop Stick

Adding the Lollipop Stick

Once your bath fizzies have setup, remove them from the bath bomb molds.  Then, you will need to add one lollipop stick to each bath bomb.  Place a stick through the center of each bath bomb.  You want to apply gentle pressure and slowly insert the stick.  If you apply too much pressure or try to move too quickly, your bath bomb can begin cracking.  Place the candy apple bath bombs on a sheet of wax paper.  Alternatively, you can place them on a silicone baking mat.

Prepare the Melt and Pour Soap Base

The next step will be preparing the melt and pour soap base.  We will begin by preparing a caramel colored hemp oil melt and pour soap base.  Then, we will go over it with the clear melt and pour soap base.  Now, I am sure you are wondering why we are using two different types of soap base for this portion of the candy apple bath bombs recipe.  Well, we first attempted this recipe using only the clear base.  It took quite a few layers to get a full coverage and used a lot of soap base.  So, then, we added a caramel colored layer using the hemp oil soap base.  However, this look did not have the shiny caramel look that we wanted.  So, we ended up doing a layer of the hemp oil soap base to get the full coverage.  Then, we added a second layer using the clear soap base.

Total Recipe Weights for Hemp Oil Soap Portion

100 grams Hemp Oil MP Soap Base
2 grams Caramel Fragrance Oil
2 grams Green Apple Explosion Fragrance Oil
15 drops Yellow Oxide FUN Soap Colorant
2 drops Red Oxide FUN Soap Colorant

Creating the First Layer of Melt and Pour Soap

Creating the First Layer of Melt and Pour SoapNow, we will prepare the first layer of caramel soap.  For the first layer, we will use the hemp oil melt and pour soap base.  So, in a small bowl, weigh out and melt the hemp oil soap base.  You will want to melt the mp soap in 30-second bursts until the base is in a liquid state.  Then, add the red oxide and yellow oxide FUN Soap Colorants.  Finally, add both the caramel fragrance oil and the green apple explosion fragrance oil.  Stir the melted soap base to blend everything together.

Adding the First Layer of Melt and Pour Soap to the Candy Apple Bath Bombs

Adding the First Layer of Melt and Pour Soap to the Candy Apple Bath Bombs
At this time, you will need a disposable pipette.  Using the disposable pipette, drizzle the caramel colored hemp oil soap over the green bath bombs.  Then, allow the soap to completely setup before moving on.

Total Recipe Amounts For Diamond Clear Soap Portion

100 grams Diamond Clear MP Soap Base
2 grams Caramel Fragrance Oil
2 grams Green Apple Explosion Fragrance Oil
10 drops Yellow Oxide FUN Soap Colorant
1 drops Red Oxide FUN Soap Colorant

Prepare the Clear Melt and Pour Soap

Once you have coated your candy apple bath bomb with the hemp oil mp soap, we will cover it with a clear caramel colored soap base. 

Creating the Clear Caramel SoapPrepare the Clear Soap Base

So, weigh out and melt 100 grams of the diamond clear soap base.  Then, add the caramel and apple fragrance oils. In addition, add 10 drops of yellow oxide FUN Soap Colorant and 1 drop of the red oxide FUN Soap Colorant.  Stir to blend the ingredients together.

Adding the Clear Caramel Soap to the Bath BombsAdd the Clear Caramel Colored Soap Base

Use a disposable pipette to drizzle each caramel apple with the caramel coating. Once your soap sets up, your Candy Apple Bath Bombs are ready to use!

Vamp Vogue Fragrance OilVamp Vogue Fragrance Oil

Before we begin, let’s take a look at the fragrance oil we will be using.  This soap making project will use Vamp Vogue Fragrance Oil from Natures Garden Soap Making Supplies. This Halloween fragrance oil by Natures Garden is a sexy, gothic statement. It starts with top notes of Blood Orange, Ruby Red Grapefruit, and Mandarin.  Then, it the citrus notes are followed by middle notes of Geranium, Bourbon, Oak Moss, and Dark Patchouli.  Finally, these notes are sitting on notes of Black Amber, Sandal Tree, Cashmere, and Musk. Vamp Vogue Fragrance Oil is an NG original scent!

First, you will need to make the red portion of the vampire teeth.  In order to create the teeth, you will need 24 grams red play dough soap. To color our soap dough, we used 30 drops of the tomato red soap colorant.  Below, you will find the ingredients and amounts for this recipe as well as step by step instructions.  You will need about 3 grams of the soap dough for each set of vampire teeth.  For our Vampire Melt and Pour Soap Recipe, we will need 8 sets of vampire teeth.  So, you will need a total of 24 grams of the soap dough.  However, this recipe makes about 9 ounces of soap dough.  So, you will have extra soap dough for later use.

103 grams Arrowroot Powder
24 grams Vegetable Glycerin
112 grams Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base
14 grams Fractionated Coconut Oil
13 grams Vamp Vogue Fragrance Oil
13 grams Vanilla White Color Stabilizer
3 grams Optiphen Preservative
30 drops Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant

Prepare the Soap Dough

Create the Arrowroot PasteCreate the Arrowroot Paste

So, in a small mixing bowl, weigh out 24 grams of Vegetable Glycerin and 21 grams Arrowroot Powder.  Then, blend these two ingredients with a fork to make a paste.  You can set this portion aside for the moment, we will come back to it.

Melt the Soap Base

Next, you will need to melt your soap base. So, you will need to first cut your soap base.  Then, in your microwave safe container, weigh out and melt 112 grams of Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base from Natures Garden.  Then, heat the soap in the microwave 30 seconds at a time. stir gently between each 30-second burst.  Keep melting until all soap base is in a liquid state.

Add the Vamp Vogue Fragrance OilAdd the Vamp Vogue Fragrance Oil

Once all the  diamond clear soap base is melted, add 14 grams Fractionated Coconut Oil, 13 grams of the Vanilla White Color Stabilizer, and 13 grams Natures Garden’s Vamp Vogue Fragrance Oil.  Stir until all of the ingredients are blended together.  Then, add your paste mixture that you set aside to the melted clear soap mixture and stir thoroughly.

Add the Soap ColorantAdd the Soap Colorant

At this time, you will need to add your soap colorant.  We used 30 drops of the tomato red FUN Soap Colorant.  Mix well. Lastly, you will need to add the Optiphen. So, place your thermometer in the mixture and wait for the correct temperature.  Optiphen should be added to your mixture around 120F.  When your mixture is at this temperature, add 3 grams of the Optiphen.  Then, mix thoroughly.

Add Arrowroot PowderAdd Arrowroot Powder

Now, weigh out 80 grams of the Arrowroot Powder.  You will want to slowly add this ingredient, working it in with a fork.  So, add some of the arrowroot powder and blend it into the mixture.  Then, add a bit more.  Repeat this process until you have added all of the arrowroot powder.  As you add the powder the mixture will thicken.

Completing the Soap Play DoughCompleting the Soap Play Dough

Next, you will need to lay out a piece of wax paper.  Then, you will need an additional 2 grams of arrowroot powder.  This will be used to coat your hands as you work with the dough.  It will prevent the dough from sticking to your hands.  Coat your hands with the arrowroot powder and place the soap dough on your wax paper. Begin kneading your dough until you are able to roll it into a ball.  Then, roll your dough into a ball and allow set out 20 minutes. Finally, the soap play dough soap is ready to use.  Pull about 24 grams from the ball to use for your vampire teeth.  The remaining dough can be stored in a Ziploc bag for later use.

Using the Red Soap DoughUsing the Red Soap Dough

Next, you will need to fill each cavity of the vampire teeth mold using the red soap dough.  You will fill only the gum portion of the mold with the red soap putty.  If needed, use a cotton swab to clean the teeth area and remove any red soap dough that may have gotten into this part of the mold.

 

Prepare the White Melt and Pour Soap

Adding the White MP Soap for the Vampire TeethAdding the White MP Soap for the Vampire Teeth

In order to finish creating the vampire teeth, you will need to create the white mp soap portion of the teeth.  So, weigh out and melt 136 grams of the hemp oil melt and pour soap. Once melted, add 6 grams of Vamp Vogue Fragrance Oil and 6 grams of Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  Then, stir and pour the melted soap into each cavity of the vampire teeth mold. Lastly, spray the soap with rubbing alcohol to release any air bubbles. Let the teeth to fully setup before removing them from the mold.

 

Prepare the White Soap for the Loaf PortionPrepare the White Soap for the Loaf Portion

Prepare the white portion of the soap loaf. You will need to weigh out and melt 870 grams of the hemp oil soap base.  Once melted, add 43 grams of the Vamp Vogue Fragrance Oil. In addition, add 43 grams of the Vanilla White Color Stabilizer.  Stir to blend the ingredients together. Then, pour the melted soap into your two pound soap mold. Finally, spray the soap with rubbing alcohol to release any air bubbles. Be sure to allow the soap to setup completely before moving on.  Note:  If you are using the silicone 4 loaf mold, you will need to divide the soap equally between two of the cavities in the mold.

Prepare the Red Melt and Pour Soap

Prepare the Red Soap Loaf LayerPrepare the Red Soap Loaf Layer

Now, we will prepare the red layer of soap. So, melt 200 grams of the Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap Base.  Once melted, add 10 grams of the Vamp Vogue Fragrance Oil from Natures Garden, 10 grams of the Vanilla White Color Stabilizer, and 6 drops of the Tomato Red FUN Soap.  Finally, spray the white soap that is in the soap mold with rubbing alcohol. Finally, pour the red soap directly on top of it.  Spray the red soap with rubbing alcohol.

Insert the Vampire TeethInsert the Vampire Teeth

Finally, we will begin placing the teeth in the soap loaf.  For this step, timing is extremely important.  You will want your red layer of soap to begin to setting up.  However, you do not want it to completely setup. It should have a somewhat thick film formed but should still be soft and will have a somewhat rubbery feel to it.  This is important because you need the soap to be soft enough that you can still press the fangs of the teeth into the soap loaf.  However, it needs to be hard enough that the teeth will stay standing. So, once the soap is ready, spray the red soap with rubbing alcohol. Then, gently press the teeth into the soap mold. Make sure that your place the teeth evenly throughout the soap mold.  Allow the soap to finish setting up before moving to the next step.

 

Cut the Soap LoafCut the Soap Loaf

Allow your soap loaf to completely setup.  Remove the soap from the mold.  Then, use the mitre box and mitre box cutter to slice your soap into eight bars.

 

Adding the Red Soap DripsAdding the Red Soap Drips

Our last step will be dripping the white soap with red soap to give it a dripping blood look.  So, we will drip bar of soap with red melt and pour soap.  Place each bar of soap on a piece of wax paper.  Then, you will need to melt 30 grams of Natures Garden’s Diamond Clear Melt and Pour Soap.  Then, add 1 gram of the Vamp Vogue Fragrance Oil and 1 gram Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. In addition, add 3 drops of the Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant and stir.  Next, using a disposable pipette, drip red soap vertically down the white soap. You want to give the soap the appearance of blood dripping from the teeth punctures. Once you have dripped each bar of soap with the red soap, allow the soap to finish setting up.  When your soap is done setting up, it is ready to use!

Soap Making Preparations

Prior to begin the Rosewood and Musk CP Soap Project, you will want to prepare your work area.  First get all of your utensils, soap making supplies, and soap making ingredients ready and in your clean and clutter-free work area.  Then, fill a bottle with vinegar.  The vinegar can be used during soap making and clean up to neutralize lye.  If you have not made cold process soap before, you will want to learn about the process and safety precautions that should be taken during the soap making process.  So, click here for Natures Garden’s Basic CP Soap Making Class. Also, you will need to become familiar with our Soap Making Safety Class.

Prepare the Lye Solution for the CP Soap RecipePrepare the Lye Solution for the CP Soap Recipe

At this time, you should prepare your lye solution.  So, weigh out your distilled water.  Next, add the lye to the water slowly.  Stir as you add the lye.  Allow the lye solution to cool to room temperature.  Then, add the sodium lactate.  Sodium lactate will help harden the bars of soap.  This will also help when it comes time to remove your soap from the mold.  However, the sodium lactate is optional.

Prepare the Oils for the Rosewood and Musk Soap Prepare the Oils for the Rosewood and Musk Soap

It will take some time for the lye solution to come to room temperature.  However, you can go ahead and weigh out your soaping oils while you are waiting.  Once you have weighed out your soaping oils, it is time to melt them.  Once the oils are melted, you will also need to wait for your oils to come to room temperature.

Prepare the Colorants
Prepare the Colorants

So, now that you have both your lye solution and soaping oils cooling, you can prepare your soap colorants.  For this recipe, we will need three colorants in total, pink, brown, and white.  We will prepare the white and the brown colorants at this time.

Prepare the Brown ColorantPrepare the Brown Colorant

In order to create a brown color in our cold process soap, we will use cocoa powder.  So, weigh out your cocoa powder in a small dish.  Then, add a small amount of your soaping oils and mix.  It is okay if the oils are still warm when they are added to the cocoa powder.  By dispersing the cocoa powder in the soaping oils prior to adding them, they will mix more easily and evenly when we add it to the soap batter.

Prepare the White ColorantPrepare the White Colorant

Next, we will create a white colorant for our soap batter using Titanium Dioxide.  So, go ahead and weigh out your titanium dioxide in a small bowl.  We will then, once again, add a small amount of the soaping oils to the powder.  Once you have created both colorants, simply place them to the side until they are needed.

Prepare the Rosewood Musk Fragrance Oil
Prepare the Rosewood Musk Fragrance Oil

At this time, we will prepare the Rosewood Musk Fragrance Oil.  Weigh out the fragrance oil in a small bowl.  Then, place it of to the side where it will be undisturbed until we need it.

Rosewood Musk Fragrance OilWhat Does Rosewood Musk Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

Rosewood Musk Fragrance Oil by Natures Garden Candle and Soap Making Supplies is the aroma of fresh cut rosewood and warm musk that blend together to create a clean, peppery scent.  The aroma begins with top notes of bergamot, tea, orange, and lemon.  Then, at the heart of rosewood musk, you will find middle notes of pepper and ginger.  This musk scent finishes with lingering notes of guicawood, vetiver, rosewood, and cedarwood.

Blend Your Soaping Oils and Lye SolutionBlend Your Soaping Oils and Lye Solution

Now, once your soaping oils as well as the lye solution are at room temperature, they are ready to be combined.  So, add the lye solution to the bowl containing the soaping oils.  Next, use your stick blender to blend the soap batter. 

Add the Rosewood Musk Fragrance Oil

Once your soap batter is emulsified, it is time to add the fragrance oil.  So, add the Rosewood Musk Fragrance Oil.  Then, once again, use the stick blender to incorporate the scent.

Divide the Rosewood Musk CP Soap Batter

Now, it is time to separate your soap batter.  So, simply divide the soap batter equally into three bowls.

Add the Colorants to the Soap Batter

Next, add one of your colorants to each bowl.  So, one bowl should be colored with the pink colorant.  Add the pink colorant to this bowl.  Then, add the cocoa powder colorant to the second bowl.  Finally, add the titanium dioxide to the last bowl.  Lastly, use your stick blender to the blend the contents of each bowl to incorporate the colorants.  You will want to begin with the white soap batter.  Then, move to the pink soap batter.  Finally, stick blend the brown soap batter.  This will allow you to blend the contents of each bowl without needing to clean the stick blender in between mixing.

Pouring Rosewood and Musk CP Soap ProjectPouring Rosewood and Musk CP Soap Project

Before we begin pouring the soap, we would like to mention that about half of the white soap batter should be kept to top the soap loaf once it is poured.  So, starting with an empty bowl, begin pouring small amounts of each color of the soap batter. You will need to pour all of the colors in small increments. Keep pouring small amounts of the pink, brown, and some white soap batter until you have used all of the pink and brown soap batter and about half of the white soap batter.  Then, allow the remaining white batter aside to thicken a bit.  You can set this portion aside for the moment.

Swirling the Rosewood and Musk CP Soap ProjectSwirling the Rosewood and Musk CP Soap Project

For the moment we will focus on the brown, pink, and white bowl of soap batter.  So, place this bowl in front of you.  Next, you will need a rubber spatula.  Place the rubber spatula in the bowl. Then, slowly move the spatula in a circular motion around the bowl until you are happy with your swirls.

Finally, it is time to pour the soap batter into two cavities of the 4-loaf silicone mold.  So, divide the soap batter equally between the two cavities in the silicone soap mold.  Gently, tap the soap mold on the counter to release any air bubbles that may have formed.

Topping the Rosewood and Musk CP Soap 
Topping the Rosewood and Musk CP Soap

Next, we will begin topping our soap.  So, for this step, you will need the remaining white soap batter that you set aside.  It needs to be at a thick frosting-like consistency. Now, once the white soap batter is at this consistency, place the it on top of each loaf.  Create peaks in the white topping.

Adding Finishing Touches to the Rosewood and Musk CP Soap Project

At this time, we will add a rose petal finishing touch!  Lightly sprinkle the top of each loaf with the pink rose petals.  You can use as little or as much as you would like.  We used less than a gram total for both loaves when creating ours.

Cutting the Rosewood and Musk CP Soap Project

After about 24- 48 hours, your rosewood musk cp soap can be removed from the mold.  Then, you can slice the soap loaves and allow them to finish curing.  The cold process soap will be ready to use after curing for 4-6 weeks.
