- 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.
- Weigh out 9 oz. Baking Soda and 4.5 oz. Citric Acid and add to a large mixing bowl. Mix together with a wire whisk breaking up any clumps.
- Add (3) 0.15 ml micro size scoops of Shimmering Light Gold Mica and mix in.
- In a plastic beaker, measure 0.75 oz. Avocado Oil and 0.75 oz. Shea Butter. Heat in microwave in 30 second increments until butter is melted.
- Add 0.50 oz. Polysorbate 80 to the same beaker.
- In a separate plastic beaker combine Cider Lane Fragrance Oil and Vanilla Color Stabilizer. Mix and allow to sit for 2 minutes, then combine with the oil/butter mixture.
- Pour oil/butter mixture into the powders and begin kneading. It should be the texture of wet sand.
- Once mixture is well blended, pack both sides of bath bomb mold tightly with product. Add enough so the tops are mounded over.
- With one mold in each hand, push them together and twist back and forth a few times to remove excess product from around the edges. At this point, you can unmold one side and brush away any remaining mixture around the lip of the mold.
- We then placed the top of the mold back on and used our Guest Size Loaf Mold to prop up our bath bombs. This suspended the molds so they did not get a flat bottom, any narrow box should work for this.
- Continue until all 6-8 bath bombs have been made (this depends on how tightly the molds are packed).
- Let fizzies harden and dry for 24-48 hours. Unmolding sooner can cause these to crumble and fall apart, if they feel soft to the touch when unmolding wait another 24 hours before continuing.
- When all fizzies are unmolded you can paint the apples. In 2 separate beakers add (3) 0.15 ml micro size scoops of Crimson Red Wine Mica Powder and (3) 0.15 ml micro size scoops Martini Olive Green Mica Powder. Add a splash of rubbing alcohol and mix with your paint brush until it is the consistency of paint.
- We painted the apples by making a heart shape with a flat bottom and adding a green leaf to each.
- Let dry on a paper towel for 2-3 more days until they are no longer moist to the touch.
- Once dry, package and label product accordingly.
