    How much oil in a bath bomb?

    I use the same amount of Polysorbate 80 as oil in my bath bombs. This allows all the oil to mix with the water. Without the polysorbate 80 the oil will sit on top of the water and make the tub slippery when getting out. It also helps bright colorants to mix with the water and no stain the tub.

    Bath Bomb ingredients

    Cream of tartar can be used in small amounts to help harden bath bombs as well. Also your shea butter could be hardening back up before you get your bombs formed. I like to split my oil weight up in 3 parts: 1 part shea butter, 1 part coconut oil, and one part sweet almond oil. This oil blend...

    adding td to clear

    Who is your favourite YT soaper?

    I love the soaps that Katie makes on Royalty soaps , but like GML said the goofiness is tiring and overshadows the cute soaps. I really like Ariane in Quebec. The professional quality of Brambleberry's videos make them nice to watch. I would like to hear of some other good channels to check out.

    Bath Tea

    Thanks! I love your website by the way. Very nice. Being from north Florida I really appreciate all the southern charm. I get customers that say the same thing. Usually when people buy those items it's as a gift for someone else. When properly packaged salts and botanical items make gorgeous...

    Bath Tea

    I'm preparing to make a few different bath teas this week and i'm wondering if any of you have any favorite ingredients you like to use. I'm also wondering about how popular bath teas (either loose, or tea bags) have been for you all. Do you sell a lot or do you find people aren't that...
