INCI Ingredient Label: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Maranta Arundinaceae (Arrowroot) Powder, Fragrance, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Berthorlletia Excelsa Seed Oil (and) Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Water, Alcohol, Propylene Glycol, Sorbitol, Water, Sodium Stearate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Laurate, Glycerin, Titanium Dioxide, Chromium Oxide.
- NOTE: If you are making these products for sale, good manufacturing practices recommend you wear a hairnet, gloves and a mask. We also recommend a clean apron.
- Mix baking soda, citric acid, arrowroot powder and cornstarch together in a bowl or stand mixer, making sure to break up any clumps and lumps with a sifter or wire whisk.
- Melt Brazil Nut Butter Blend, Cocoa Butter and the Grapeseed Oil together in microwave for 30 second spurts until completely melted. Set aside and let cool for a few minutes.
- In a small container measure out the water, alcohol and the scent and mix together.
- Mix the oil mixture with the water/alcohol mixture.
- With stand mixer on low, pour the liquids in at once and turn mixer up one notch, incorporating the liquid quickly to stop the fizzing action. If you do not have a stand mixer it is okay to grab a whisk and pour half of liquid in the bowl, whisk vigorously and then add other half and whisk it in.
- To see if the mixture is ready to mold, scoop some mixture in your hand and it should keep a shape when squeezed.
- Take a two piece bath bomb mold and fill one side. You will want to overfill the one side by pressing mixture in the mold and also by making a mound (kind of like a snow cone) then press the other half of mold on top.
- With molds in your hand press them together and with a slight twist you will take off one side of the mold and place in your hand and gently take off other half of mold. If you do not want the ring around it then simply wipe around your bath bomb with your hand and it comes right off.
- Place on a lined cookie sheet. (You can also leave in molds overnight and they will pop right out.)
- Let your bath bombs dry overnight. Once bath bombs are hard, you are ready to decorate them.
- To decorate them, melt 6-8 oz. melt and pour soap in a microwave-safe dish on low. Heat in 30 second bursts until completely melted. Make sure not to overheat the soap.
- Place dry fizzies on wax paper. Take a spoon and pour a teaspoon of warm (not hot) melted soap over each bath fizzy. Repeat until they are all coated.
- Melt an additional 2 oz. Melt and Pour Soap and add a few drops of the color. (Start with a few drops - less is more - you can always add more but you cannot take any away.)
- Take and dip a fork into the green melted soap and drizzle over several bath fizzies at a time. I like to line them up and go in an up and down motion along the tray of fizzies.
- Let them set until dry. Gently lift from wax paper and remove any excess soap from each fizzy.
- To package: there are so many cute chocolate boxes, treat boxes or candy boxes that you can find almost anywhere. Make sure to add DO NOT EAT to the label. The truffles make a great wedding shower, baby shower or birthday gift.
