Recipe Directions

  1. NOTE: If you are making these product for sale, good manufacturing practices recommend you wear a hairnet, gloves and a mask. We also recommend a clean apron and workspace.
  2. In two mixing bowls, measure out 1 cup baking soda per bowl.
  3. Add 1/2 cup citric acid to each bowl.
  4. Blend mixture. Use a sifter to remove any clumps that appear.
  5. Add 1/2 cup of Lathanol LAL Powder to each bowl. (We recommend using a mask when working with this product.  It is a very fine powder and becomes airborne very quickly.)
  6. To one bowl add 1/8 tsp. of color and blend well with a wire whisk.
  7. Add 5 ml of Cherry Vanilla Fragrance Oil to each bowl and mix well with whisk. Set aside.
  8. Place 4 oz. cocoa butter and 2 oz. shea butter into a double boiler and heat until butters have completely melted.
  9. Stir melted butters and pour 3 oz. into a measuring cup. Add to one bowl of dry ingredient  
  10. Add remaining 3 oz. of butter to second bowl of dry ingredients. Mix with a spatula to incorporate the ingredients.
  11. Using the scoop, fill half with white mixture and the other half with pink mixture.
  12. Place scoop onto a cookie sheet.  Continue in this manner until all product is used.
  13. Mixture will yield approximately 24 scoops. 
  14. Place the 2 oz. of Epsom Salts in a bowl. Add 1/8 teaspoon of Neon Pink Pleasures Powder color and mix well into the salts.
  15. Sprinkle the pink salts on top of the truffles.   
  16. Let truffles set out to dry overnight.
  17. When ready to package, place 4 bath truffles into a cello bag and tie with curling ribbons.
  18. Label product accordingly.

WSP Questions And Answers

"I used weights instead of dry measurements for the baking soda, citric acid, and SLSa: so, 8 oz instead of 1 cup, etc. Will this affect my final product? It seemed like I used more than 1 cup measuring cup of the baking soda to weigh out the 8 oz. Thanks."

"Can the quantities of the two butters be swapped? I don't have enough Cocoa Butter, but have enough Shea Butter for the amounts listed. Alternatively, can the cocoa butter be removed from the recipe and replace that amount with Shea Butter?"

"I was wondering are these cute little truffles supposed to be hard like bath bombs when they are finished? Or are they supposed to be a little soft still. I have had my batch drying for about 5 days and they are slightly soft to the touch. Please help. :-)"

"I see "Bis(Glycidoxyphenyl)propane/Bisaminomethylnorbornane copolymer" listed in the INCI ingredients. What is the ingredient that contains that and can it be avoided? Is there a substitute for the SLSa too?"
