Bath Bomb Recipe

This year I made some bath bombs for Christmas Gifts, but not just any bath bombs.

Bath Bombs

These are not the put in the bath and fizz up quickly, these bath bombs will help to moisturize that dry itchy winter skin.

In this bath bomb recipe cocoa butter or hemp butter are added for wonderful moisturizing properties and as you drop them in your tub, they will gently and slowly fizz while moisturizing your skin as you relax in the bath.


These have always been a favorite, but I usually just make them for family and friends. This year I made more and sold them at the Christmas Craft markets I attended.

I call these bath kisses……because the cocoa butter kisses your skin with moisture. This recipe can be doubled or tripled for whatever quantity is required and scented with the essential oil of your choice.

When this recipe is made with organic cocoa butter it has the wonderful smell of cocoa and can be left unscented.

For this recipe you will require the following equipment:

  • glass measuring cup (4 cup)
  • kitchen scale to measure the weights
  • double boiler or a pot with wire rack
  • bath bomb molds or molds of your choice to pour into

Ingredients:

  • 2 oz of Cocoa Butter or Hemp Butter – Hemp Butter Recipe
  • 1/4 – 1/2 tsp of fragrance or essential oil (optional)
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cups baking soda
  • 1/4 cup citric acid
  • 1/8 cup of corn starch

Directions:

Melt the cocoa butter and if using scent add it when cocoa butter is melted. Remove from heat and add the Baking Soda, Corn Starch and Citric Acid. Blend this mixture real well – it should be a little soupy.

Using a teaspoon be careful and pour into bath bomb molds, chocolate mold or another mold of your choice.

Let these stand at room temperature to cool a bit and then place into the freezer for 15 – 30 minutes to set up.

Pop out and place on wax paper until thawed. Then put into bags and tag with list of ingredients.

Bath Bomb Molds

This is the mold that I used for the pot leaf bath kisses you see in the picture above.

They turned out really well, I put 5 of these in a small organza bags and sold them for $2.00 a bag at the Christmas Craft Fairs.

They sold well as stocking stuffers.

Here is the link to the molds I purchased

Marijuana Cannabis Weed Hemp Leaf Silicone Molds for Pot Candy Mold Chocolate Gummy Gummies, 2 Pack

and these lovely 3×4 organza bags worked perfectly with the Pot Leaf bath bombs.

The white was great at not hiding but showing off the color of these bath bombs nicely.  I think any other color would have taken away from them.

You can purchase them on Amazon by clicking on this link

Great Mold for Bath Bombs

Here is another mold that is great for this bath bomb recipe – actually any candy molds will work.

I find with this recipe these are better than the big round bath bomb molds.

Skin Safe Bath Bomb Colors

Here are some skin safe colors to add to your bath bomb recipe.

Tips when making your Bath Bombs

When I make these I will make several batches of different colors; so I have a small stainless steel tea pot that I melt my cocoa butter in and then pour the weight amount I need for each batch.

I use a 4 cup glass measuring cup to pour the amount of cocoa butter required for the recipe into. The dry ingredients will be added to the melted cocoa butter.

The dry ingredients are measured out and added to the cocoa butter. This mixture should be blended well and once its blended will look a little on the soupy side.  I sometimes find I have to add a little drop more of cocoa butter or maybe a little more baking soda to get the right consistency. Every batch can be a little different.

DIY Natural Sunscreen Lotion Recipe

DIY Natural Sunscreen Lotion Recipe

You can make your own natural sunscreen using natural oils; some natural oils have great protection without the harsh chemicals that can be found in some store bought sunscreens.

Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide are two other natural ingredients used in natural sunscreen.

What does Zinc Oxide Do?

Zinc Oxide is a great addition to natural sunscreen as it blocks both the UVA and UVB sun rays, when using sunscreen with Zinc Oxide you don’t have to wait the suggested 15 – 20 minutes as recommended with other sunscreens. The zinc oxide is a physical blocker and works to block harmful sun rays as soon as it is applied. Continue reading

Dry Skin Care Products

With so many skin care products on the market it often gets difficult to decide what to use.  Everyone has different skin, dry, oily, sensitive, young and aging.

You can choose from many creams out there that claim to help with your skin, but read the labels. Will they really help?  Many  have chemicals that are really not very good for our skin.


I have tried many creams and lotions, but with very sensitive skin it can be difficult, so using products with little or no chemicals is what I found works best.

Be careful what you put on your skin.  I have tried sunscreens and most of them have left me with rashes.  So I did my own research and found that many natural oils have natural SPF so I began to make my own.  Now for some great creams and lotions on the market……

Neem Cream for Dry Skin

Neem Cream

I find that Neem Cream is good for dry skin, neem is rich in antioxidants, vitamins and fatty acids.  With regular use it will help to smooth wrinkles and fine lines.

Neem Cream helps the skin retain moisture as well as restore the skins natural protective barrier, it’s an effective skin conditioner and will help to keep your skin moisturized as well as help to repair any skin damage due to dryness from the environment.

Neem Cream can help people that suffer from the symptoms of Eczema, neem oil is high in vitamin E and rich in fatty acids, this enables it to penetrate deep into the skin to help retain moisture.

Neem Oil reduces inflammation and relieves swelling and redness, which aids in the healing of dry damaged skin.

Essential Oils that are safe for Dogs

With more people becoming interested in using natural products and essential oils being one of them, it’s important to remember than not all essential oils are safe for dogs.

As a pet owner it’s important to know which ones are okay and which are not, especially if you are using essential oils in your home for cleaning or just for scent in a diffuser.



For cleaning your home I would recommend using pet friendly cleaners like Mrs Meyers – Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Multi-Surface Everyday Cleaner – 16 oz – BasilContinue reading
