Valentine’s Day is on the horizon which means all things pink, ammiright?! So in honor of Valentine’s I thought I’d share one of my all time favorite bath bombs, the Pink Cloud.
Now this bomb doesn’t have any of the swirly embeds of some of my other bombs, but it more than makes up for it with it’s incredibly emollient and soothing ingredients. This bomb is one of the top sellers in my shop and it doesn’t take much to figure out why.
It’s formulated with goat’s milk, colloidal oatmeal, cocoa butter and kokum butter. Not to mention it’s use of Rose Absolute and Jasmine essential oil to boost the scent. Long story short, if a friend of mine needs a soothing, softening bath, I chuck one of these at them. So let’s get started!
The first thing you’ll have to do is get the recipe from my premium spa recipes shop.
One of the very first things you should notice about the recipe is that it calls for your citric acid to be ground up. You can do this by grinding your citric acid in batches in your blender. The finer the powder the better for a smoother finish, and a faster reaction.
Next, we’re going to be combining all of our dry ingredients. This is where you can really see everything that makes this bath bomb so amazingly luxurious. In addition to the baking soda and citric, you’ll be adding a blend of arrowroot powder, goat’s milk and colloidal oatmeal. Once again, to get the exact measurements, download the recipe here.
Next, you’ll be melting your butters. This recipe uses both cocoa and kokum butters! If you’ve never used kokum butter in your bath bombs before you should. Just trust me on this. It is smoother than cocoa but harder than shea. And of course, it is incredibly nourishing and healing for your skin. Not to mention, it won’t clog the pores.
After you’ve melted your butters, make sure they are cool enough to where your fragrance oils or essential oils won’t evaporate. Basically, if you can touch the bowl you melted them in with your bare hands without burning yourself, they’re cool enough.
Then add in the rest of your wet ingredients. This includes the grapeseed oil, fragrance oil, essential oils and polysorbate 80. Once again, to get the complete ingredients list and measurements, download the recipe here.
P.S. The scent of these bombs is to die for. I love the Crafter’s Choice Asian Plum fragrance on its own, but adding in the touch of Rose Absolute and Jasmine just hits a home run for me every stinkin time.
Now that you have your wet and dry ingredients ready to go, start by mixing your dry ingredients well in a stand-up mixer. Once, they are fully mixed, slowly add in your wet ingredients until the two are fully combined. The consistency should look like this once it’s done:
All that’s left is to divide, color and mold your bath bombs! The three colorants I’m using are the Crafter’s Choice Bath Bomb Orange Powder, Crafter’s Choice Red Lake Powder and Xen Bright Red Neon bath bomb colorant.
