Galaxy Bubble Bombs!

October 17, 2017

If you’ve followed my blog for a while you’ll know I am a very big fan of baths and bubbles. I have tried to make bubble bars for some time now and it has been tough! Most recipes call for SLSA which is hard to find in Canada for a decent price and also apparently isn’t the best thing for you! I would love to use LUSH bubble bars all the time but at $7 a piece and with my bath addiction, it adds up fast. I am happy to say that I finally created a recipe that works and lathers and foams just like you want, changes your waters colours and smells divine! Initial costs for these bubble bars can be a bit on the higher end, but the recipe makes many so you are really probably on paying $1-2 per bubble bar rather than $7! So drum roll please… here is my Galaxy Bubble Bomb recipe!

What You Need:

– 4 cups baking soda
-1 cup cream of tartar
– 1 cup cornstarch
– 3/4 coco glucoside (I found mine a health+vitamins store)
– 20 drops frangrance oil (I used Peaches + Cream)
– 1 tbsp polysorbate 80
– mica colouring (I used purple, blue, and green)
bath bomb mold
– rubbing alcohol or witch hazel in a spray bottle

What To Do:

1. Sift all dry ingredients into a bowl

2. Add coco glucoside and mix thoroughly

3. Add 20 drops of fragrance oil

4. If using different colourants, separate mixture into number of colours you plan to use. I did three
5. Add 1/4 tsp of mica colourant and about 1/3 tbsp of polysorbate 80 to each mixture. Mix thoroughly (I recommend using a glove)

6. Once mixed, spray with witch hazel or rubbing alcohol a few spritz at a time and continue mixing until mixture is like playdough. This can take a long time

7. Using bath bomb molds, pack down mixture into each half (you can use a combination of colours to get the planet affect). Leave a little loose mixture on top and spray with a bit of witch hazel or alcohol before you close and press each half together (this helps each side bind)

8. Remove from mold immediately and place on a tray and allow to dry. And that’s it!!! Super simple but takes some patience. Enjoy!
