How to Make Blue and White Wintery Bath Bombs
Sprinkle a bit of glitter into snowflake mold. Melt 4-6 cubes of the white soap base in your microwave for 30 seconds. If soap is not completely melted, melt in 15 second bursts until melted all the way. Separate mixture into two measuring cups.
Add 1/2 teaspoon white mica powder into first measuring cup. Sprinkle about 1/2 -1 teaspoon of white glitter into container. Pour soap into mold and spray with rubbing alcohol to avoid bubbles. Repeat with the blue mica and glitter. Allow to harden while making bath bomb mixture.
Add dry ingredients to a large bowl. Whisk until well combined.
Add coconut oil along with the polysorbate 80 to dry ingredients. Melt cocoa butter and add to bowl along with the scented oil. Whisk to combine thoroughly.
Using your hands or a sturdy spoon, break down as many clumps that may be remaining in your mixture. You will know when the mixture is perfect when it feels like wet sand and you can press the mixture together in your hands and it stays together.
Separate mixture into the two smaller bowls. Add 1 tablespoon white mica powder and white glitter to one and the blue mica and blue glitter to the other. Mix thoroughly.
Pop soaps out of the mold. Take a soap and place it upside down in one side of a large bath bomb mold. Sprinkle enough bath bomb mixture to cover the embed. Fill the mold the rest of the way to be slightly overflowing. Fill the other side of the mold.
Press molds together and using a grinding motion, get rid of the excess mixture. Tap the bath bomb gently and release. Allow to dry 48 hours or until hard. Store in an airtight container until ready to use.
Isn’t this just the most practical idea for a housewarming gift–or just a gift for yourself?! It’s so easy to whip up too! I might make a second set just so I have a backup…
