Bath bomb success! I think?!

I have spent a lot of time and money trying to find the perfect bath bomb recipe. I bought Make It Fizz and love the recipes! I then wanted to add polysorbate 80, so the colors and oils won’t stick to the tub. After failed attempts this week, I think I have my new recipe. 

My love spell fizzies turned out great! No ring around the tub! The color was supposed to be red, but I suppose I did not add enough mica. Next time!

I tried another recipe and it was also successful!

The picture above is Violet fizzies. Once again, the color is not as bright as I want it, but through trial and error, lots of error, I will get there! 

Solid sugar scrubs were also fun to make. These are cotton candy. I sent off my first sample today, with a cotton candy soap order. 

Have a fun filled weekend! I will be cleaning up the huge mess in my craft room!

New Soap!

So I am a little rusty on soap making! It showed on my pomegranate soap two weeks ago! I won’t even post a picture of it! I made another loaf last week, not bad and then cut this yesterday. 

My new soap is scented with white citrus. The top cracked just a bit, but still much nicer than the last two attempts! I made white tea and ginger soap yesterday and so far it looks good. (Memo to self, never take a two month break from soapmaking!)

I played with bath bombs yesterday. I strayed from my trusty recipe and tried a new one. It started to react when I added the wet ingredients and I had to save it by adding more dry ingredients. It caused the mixture to dry faster and I had enough time to cut out stars and then roll the rest into bath “rocks!”

It was fun and the bath bombs still did well when I tested a couple. (Memo to self: stick with the best recipe!)

I love being creative and messy and having fun with the bath products I make. A lot of failures and some successes, but a whole lot of learning and loving the process. 

I am planning to add bath bombs in my Etsy shop next month and bubble bars in March. Check out my soaps, stop by www.etsy.com/shop/littlemisssuds

Bubble bath anyone? 

Yesterday, I made these cute Sleepy time bubble bars! Took my time and really cared about how they looked because I had planned to put them in my Etsy shop. This morning I woke up to this! 

Back to the drawing board! The fragrance oil changed my color! No problem, I can fix it with my next batch! Keeping notes is very important when creating. I can see what went wrong and tweak it the next time. And if the next batch is bad,  I can tweak that too! 

My youngest daughter graduated art school on Friday. I loved her portfolio show! I made forty bath bombs for her to hand out and got back a positive review already! It really makes my day when someone likes what I have made out of love! I love what I do! And if one person loves it,  then it was well worth it!

Bath Bombs

Not only do I make soap, I also make bath bombs, scrubs, solid lotion bars, bubble bars, whipped lotions, soaking salts and chap stick! I am obsessed! 

The gift bag above was taken to a community Bingo night. (I wonder if they are tired of my bath products! ) I put my products in colorful bags to grab people’s attention! Seems to work! 

This year for holiday gifts, I plan to do gifts baskets. I also plan to add them to my Etsy shop as well. 

I have several fragrances to make bath bombs, with more coming in this week! 

If you haven’t stopped by my shop, look for Little Miss Suds. If you have any suggestions for ideas and fragrances,  please leave a comment!
