Recipe Directions

  1. 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 and workspace.
  2. This recipe is designed to make 2 bubble bar logs approximately 8 1/2 inches in length. We found it easier to make 2 smaller than one larger log. If you desire, the recipe can be doubled and made all together.
  3. Measure 1 cup Baking Soda, 1/3 cup Corn Starch and 1/3 cup Bubble Bar Hardener and place in large glass bowl.
  4. Add 1 cup Lathanol Powder. (NOTE: Be sure to wear a mask for this step.  Lanthanol Powder is extemely fine and becomes airborne very quickly.)
  5. Carefully and gently mix powder ingredients together using a wire whisk.
  6. To dry ingredients, add 1 Tablespoon Castor Oil and 1/3 Cup Glycerin.
  7. In a plastic beaker, mix 9.5 ml Vanilla Bean Fragrance Oil and 4.25 ml Vanilla Color Stabilizer for CP Soap.  Add this to the dry mixture.
  8. With gloved hands, begin to mix dry and wet ingredients together.
  9. When ingredients begin to blend, add one 0.15 ml scoop of poppy seeds to mixture. Continue to blend with hands until mixture has a dough-like consistency.
  10. To test to see if mixture is ready, place a small amount into the palm of your hand and squeeze. If mixture stays together, it is ready to roll. If mixture does not stay together, drizzle a small amount of glycerin over dough and knead.
  11. Once dough is right consistency, place dough on waxed paper or saran wrap.    
  12. Folding one end of "wrap" over the dough, begin to roll back and forth creating a log.  As you are rolling the dough, you may need to pull out the wrap as necessary so it does not get caught in the dough. 
  13. Continue to roll until log is about 8 1/2" long.  Flatten out the ends so the log is the same width all the way across and completely wrap dough with the waxed paper or saran wrap.
  14. Repeat above steps to create the second bubble bar log.
  15. Let logs harden for about 2 hours.   
  16. Unwrap and slice into about 3/4" slices. Let slices dry overnight.
  17. To package, place 2 slices in a cello bag and tie with raffia.
  18. Label product accordingly.
  19. TO USE: Crumble 1/2 - 1 bubble bar under warm running water.  Create even more bubbles by briskly running your hand back and forth under the running water.
