Fizzing Shamrock Bath Truffles Recipe

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

4 oz. citric acid
8 oz. baking soda
2 oz. cocoa butter
1 oz. dendritic salt
.3 oz. SLSA
.15 oz. lime peel essential oil
1/2 teaspoon jade green crystal mica powder

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale for my fizzing shamrock bath truffles recipe in order to weigh the ingredients. (I recommend this Baker’s Math Scale if you plan to make a lot of bath, body or soap recipes.) You will also need the Wilton 8-Cavity Silicone Shamrock Mold which can be found online and in most craft stores.

While it doesn't have the dramatic effect of a bath bomb, it's perfect for those who prefer less flair in their bath water. You'll also find that my fizzing shamrock bath truffles recipe creates a product that's easy to remove from a silicone mold - so your fizzy bath truffles come out all in one piece!

Being by weighing out the cocoa butter in either a double boiler or a glass Pyrex container. Heat the cocoa butter in your double boiler or in a heat safe glass container in the microwave at 50% power until melted.

Set aside to cool slightly.

Now weigh out the citric acid, baking soda, dendritic salt, and SLSA and combine in a large glass. (You may want to wear a face mask for this step. Both the SLSA and the citric acid are finer particles that can cause coughing as they are released into the air.)

Using a teaspoon measure, measure out the jade green mica and add to the other dry ingredients. Now mix the dry ingredients thoroughly together.

Next, weigh out the essential oil and stir into the melted cocoa butter.

Combine the dry ingredients with the scented cocoa butter and mix well.

You can now begin filling five of the cavities of your shamrock silicone mold. To do this, I recommend filling one cavity at a time. Loosely add the fizzing bath truffles mix to fill one cavity. Then pile more on top to form a mountain. Next, firmly press the ingredients into the mold cavity. Resist pushing so hard that the cavity bows out on the sides, but enough that the mixture is firmly packed.

Proceed with filling four additional cavities of your shamrock mold.

Once you’ve filled the mold, set the molded fizzing bath bomb truffles aside out of the way in a dry location.

Wait two days, then carefully unmold your fizzing shamrock bath truffles.

Wrap and label your completed fizzing bath truffles as desired for personal use or for gifting.

To use, simply add to warm, running bath water and enjoy!

My fizzing shamrock bath truffles don’t have the same flair as bath bombs however they do create bubbles and fill your bath with nourishing cocoa butter. These are perfect for people that don’t want super colored bathwater and strong fragrances.

If you plan to sell your fizzing shamrock bath truffles, you’ll need to follow FDA guidelines for labeling your product. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling cosmetics, I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.

It is important to note that, as this product contains SLSA, it is considered a foaming detergent bath product. As such labeling requires an additional caution to be printed on the label unless it states that the product is for adult use only. This is in addition to the ingredient list and directions for use and other information required for cosmetic labeling.

FDA information on labeling foaming detergent bath products ie. bath bombs and/or bubble bar with SLSA.

Above is a screenshot of this requirement from the FDA website for cosmetic labeling regulations regarding this product.

Notes:

Be sure to use your fizzy bath truffles within a few months for best results as citric acid begins to lose it’s potency once exposed to air.

In addition I also received some helpful tips for making bath bombs on one of my instagram posts!

The Bubbling Mermaid suggests when formulating your own bath bombs or bath fizzies for use in a silicone mold that you add kaolin clay for ease of removal. While The Chequered Lily also recommends curing your bath fizzies in a silicone mold for at least 48 hours.

Exfoliating Whipped Sugar Scrub Recipe

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

13 oz. white granulated sugar
6 oz. ultra refined high melt point shea butter
.75 oz. refined cocoa butter
.5 oz. jojoba oil
.5 oz. fractionated coconut oil
.5 oz. emulsifying wax
.5 oz. lagoon green jojoba beads
.2 oz. aloe vera oil
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum powder
.2 oz. fragrance oil or .1 oz. essential oil

Instructions:

Using a digital scale weigh out the shea butter, cocoa butter and  emulsifying wax. Heat in a double boiler until melted. (Alternately you can also heat in a large glass Pyrex container in the microwave at 50% power.)

Next weigh out the jojoba oil, fractionated coconut oil and aloe vera oil. (Please note that fractionated coconut oil is not the same as regular coconut oil and it is always liquid at room temperature or colder. In addition aloe vera oil is not the same thing as aloe vera gel. It’s actually an oil.)

Add the oils to the double boiler and stir well to combine.

Remove from heat and measure out the xanthan gum powder. Whisk into the melted butter mixture until it dissolves.

Now weigh out your fragrance of choice and stir into the melted body butter mixture.

A great scent choice for essential oils is equal parts lemongrass essential oil and peppermint essential oil with just a “splash” of lime peel essential oil. Or if a fragrance oil is preferred, I really love a limoncello fragrance oil for spring!

Allow the mixture to cool until it begins to get cloudy. (You can speed this process up by placing your melted ingredients in the refrigerator for a short amount of time.)

And whether you're creating these products to gift or to sell, you can give them the same professional look as the big companies with your own custom designed waterproof vinyl labels from StickerYou!

To make the whipped body butter soufflé recipe:

Then, if you are making the whipped body butter soufflé, pour the melted mixture into your mixing bowl and whip until your body butter reaches the desired consistency. I highly recommend a stand mixer for this step as it can take a while.

Once your whipped body butter soufflé has a creamy, marshmallow fluff like texture it can be spooned into your jars. (You should be able to hold a spoon of the whipped body butter upside down without it dripping off.) This recipe will yield two 8 oz. whipped body souffles.

To use, apply sparingly as a little goes a long way. Once your skin absorbs the body butter souffle, it will not feel greasy or tacky and you will really be able to feel the hydration that it locks in. For this reason I loved this product on my hands and feet – but feel free to use it anywhere you like.

If you are scenting your whipped body butter soufflé with essential oils or lip safe fragrance oils, this feels AMAZING on lips too!

To make the exfoliating whipped sugar scrub recipe:

If you are making the whipped sugar scrub, once your melted oils have cooled, weigh out the jojoba beads and the sugar and combine with the melted body butter mixture in your mixing bowl. Whip until the sugar scrub reaches desired consistency or until it holds onto your whisk or a spoon without dropping off.

Now spoon or pipe your whipped sugar scrub into your containers. My whipped sugar scrub recipe yields approximately four 8 oz. jars.

To use, scoop out desired amount and massage onto wet skin in the bath or shower as desired. Rinse off then pat dry.

I used ActuallyOrganic 100% Pure Moroccan Argan Oil to create these luxe bridesmaid favors. This cold pressed argan oil is USDA certified organic and works wonderfully for all of your natural skin care recipes. It’s also great for helping to smooth dry frizzy hair or as a body oil for dry winter skin.

Personally I also love it with a few drops of coffee essential oil mixed in under my eyes to help reduce the appearance under eye puffiness and dark circles! (Also probably great for bridesmaids after that late night bachelorette party!)

Strawberries & Champagne Solid Sugar Scrub Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

1.25 oz. detergent free baby buttermilk soap base
2 oz. refined shea butter
.3 oz. ActuallyOrganic Argan Oil
.3 oz. moringa oil
.25 oz. strawberries and champagne fragrance oil
8 oz. white granulated sugar
red liquid soap colorant, to suit

 Instructions:

You will need two silicone flower chocolate molds (with 15 cavities each) or similar to make these bridesmaid favors. In addition you’ll also need a digital scale to weigh out the ingredients.

This recipe will yield 30 .4 oz. solid sugar scrub cubes and make six jars of bridesmaid favors (assuming you fill each jar with five solid sugar scrub cubes.)

Begin by weighing out the shea butter and soap base. Combine in a double boiler and gently heat until melted.

If you do not have a double boiler, you can use a microwave. You’ll need to heat the shea butter first at 40-50% power until mostly melted then melt the soap base with the shea butter the rest of the way. You do not want to overheat your ingredients so stopping and melting the ingredients as you go is also helpful.

Once melted remove from heat.

Now weigh out the argan and moringa oils along with the fragrance oil and stir into the melted butters and soap base.

Next you’ll want to weigh out the sugar into a large Pyrex measuring cup.

Pour the sugar into the liquid mixture of oils, shea butter, soap and fragrance mixing as you go. Once thoroughly combined use a spatula to spoon the mixture into one mold filling all fifteen cavities. Flatten with the spatula.

With the remaining solid sugar scrub mixture, add 2-4 drops of red liquid soap color until desired color is achieved.

Spoon the pink solid sugar scrub mixture into your second mold so you fill all fifteen cavities with the colored scrub. Flatten with the spatula.(Hint. Place your mold on a cutting board for easy transfer to another location later.)

If desired, transfer your solid sugar scrub cubes to the fridge until they are fully solidified.

Once your solid sugar scrub cubes have set up, carefully remove them from each of the molds’ cavities.

Fill six 4 oz. Clear Glass Paragon Jars with Silver Caps with five solid sugar scrub cubes in alternating colors. I got my glass jars from SKS Bottle & Packaging here. (These also make excellent spice jars!) Then simply tie ribbons around the neck of the jars and you’re done!

Homemade Hibiscus Salt Scrub Recipe

hibiscus-salt-scrub-recipe-2

This easy homemade hibiscus salt scrub recipe contains exfoliating sea salt and hibiscus flowers as well as moisturizing cocoa butter and safflower oil to pamper and help soften and clarify your skin.

Hibiscus flowers are composed of 15 to 30% plant acids which make this plant a great choice for skin care in addition to a tea time treat! One of the plant acids found in hibiscus flowers is citric acid.

A member of the alpha hydroxy acid family of molecules, citric acid is found in many over-the-counter skin care products as well as clinical chemical peels. Especially useful for people suffering from acne or enlarged pores, citric acid helps to exfoliate one’s complexion by breaking down the protein bonds between dead and living skin cells, allowing the dead cells to be shed.

You can use either hibiscus flowers or hibiscus flower powder for this homemade hibiscus salt scrub recipe.

This easy homemade hibiscus salt scrub recipe contains exfoliating sea salt and hibiscus flowers as well as moisturizing cocoa butter and safflower oil to pamper and help soften and clarify your skin.

Homemade Hibiscus Salt Scrub Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

27 oz. sea salt, fine ground
4.15 oz. grey Celtic sea salt
7.5 oz. safflower oil
1.5 oz. cocoa butter
.5 oz. hibiscus flowers, crushed
.65 oz. fragrance oil, of choice

Instructions:

Using a digital scale, weigh out the salts into a large glass bowl or a large glass Pyrex measuring cup.

Next, weigh out the hibiscus flowers. Place the flowers in a ziplock or similar bag and roll over the bag with a rolling pin to crush the flowers into a smaller size. Alternately you can use hibiscus flower powder.

Mix the crushed flower into the salts until they are evenly distributed throughout.

Now weigh the cocoa butter out in a separate container. Heat at 50% power in the microwave until melt. Or melt the cocoa butter in a double boiler.

Now weigh out the safflower oil and mix into the cocoa butter.

If you’d like to scent your hibiscus salt scrub recipe, weigh out a skin safe fragrance oil of your choice and stir into the melted butter and oil. Stir to mix. (If you prefer to use an essential oil, depending on usage rates for the essential oil you’ve chosen, use up to .o1 oz.)

Pour the salt and hibiscus mixture into the scented butter and oil and stir until fully combined.

Now spoon your completed hibiscus bath salts evenly into three 8 oz. jars. I used the 8 oz.Black PET PCR Jars with Black Smooth Lined Caps from SKS Bottle & Packaging specifically for this project. You can find them here.

Now label your containers for gifting or personal use to suit.

For my labels I used this free clip art collection from Citrus & Mint blog. (You can also visit Citrus & Mint on Etsy for more amazing scrapbook and clip art elements that you can buy.) I simply opened them into a Word program and added the desired text. I then printed my labels out onto full size label sheets. (You can find great prices on all kinds of labels and sticker sheets at World Label here.) I then cut them out and applied them to the face of my jars. (Learn how to create your own custom labels with my step-by-step tutorial here.)

If you’re making your hibiscus salt scrubs to sell, then you’ll want to label them in order to meet state and federal laws. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling cosmetics, I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.

DIY Rose Sugar Scrub

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

27 oz. white granulated sugar
9 oz. safflower oil
.45 oz. rose fragrance oil, of choice or 25 drops of rose absolute
dried red roses or dried whole rosebuds, to suit

Instructions:

To make this DIY rose sugar scrub, begin by using a digital scale to weigh out the sugar.

Next, add rose petals to suit, mixing them in with the sugar until they evenly distributed.

In a separate container, weigh out the safflower oil.

If using a fragrance oil, weigh out the fragrance and mix it into the safflower oil. (You can also any other skin safe fragrance oil that you’d like.) If you’re using rose absolute, add 25 drops instead. Rose absolute is pretty potent, so a little will go a long way.

Now pour the sugar and rose mixture into the scented oil and mix thoroughly.

Evenly fill three 8 oz. jars with your rose sugar scrub. I used the 8 oz.Black PET PCR Jars with Black Smooth Lined Caps from SKS Bottle & Packaging specifically for this project. You can find them here.

Feather Clipart from Huckleberry Hearts

All that’s left is to label for jars for gifting! For my labels I purchased feather clipart from Huckleberry Hearts on Etsy, then used a Word program to create my labels. (Learn how to create your own custom labels with my step-by-step tutorial here.) Then simply print your newly created labels onto label sheets – I get mine from World Label – and apply to your jars.

If you’re making your DIY rose sugar scrub to sell (for small commercial use) and want to use the same clipart as I have but without credit, you would need to purchase a commercial license from the creator.

You’ll also want to make sure you label your rose sugar scrubs appropriately to meet state and federal laws. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling cosmetics, I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.
