Bramble Berry Bath Bomb Swap Part One

I’ve been kicking the idea of adding bath bombs to the feto soap line. Here’s one I made at the very beginning of the year: [singlepic id=26 w=320 h=240 float=] I am pretty sure I used too much witch hazel in my mix, so they started looking like bath muffins instead of cupcakes. They started “growing” (reaction between the sodium bicarbonate and citric acid) when I wasn’t looking. I punched them down three times & on the third time they stayed down to this level of poofiness. [singlepic id=31 w=320 h=240 float=] I made a few giant bath bombs last week that I was happy with in Oatmeal, Milk & Honey and White Zinfandel and saw that Bramble Berry was hosting a swap, which was perfect because I wanted to work on my bath bomb cupcakes & experiment with using clays to color them. I made the bases of my cupcakes with pink & white kaolin clay and scented them with cherry almond. It was a humid day and the bases didn’t want to cooperate, so I ended up adding more witch hazel and sweet almond oil to get my mixture to stay together. Then I made some bath frosting & topped the cupcakes with it, jojoba beads & a sprinkle of iridescent glitter. [singlepic id=27 w=320 h=240 float=][singlepic id=28 w=320 h=240 float=] I had some leftover frosting, so I made cake balls with them. [singlepic id=29 w=320 h=240 float=] and then cake pops with them. [singlepic id=32 w=320 h=240 float=]

I needed to make 12 bath bombs for the swap, and I ended up with 13, so I did some “product testing” the other day with the extra cupcake. The bottom of the cupcake fizzed away and tinted my bath water a little pink, and I ran the top of the cupcake under running water to make bubbles. It didn’t completely dissolve on its own so I used it to shave my legs! It was great!

I mailed them off on Monday, so hopefully they will get there safe and sound! [singlepic id=30 w=320 h=240 float=] 30 people have signed up so far. I can’t wait to try everyone’s bath bombs out! They are fun to use and make my skin feel so soft! I prefer a bath bomb swap to a soap swap because you can use one bath bomb per bath vs. a bar of soap, which takes so much longer to go through. I still have soap from a Soap Conference swap a few years back!
