DIY Xbox Bath Bombs


Bath Bomb ingredients

2 cups baking soda
1 cup corn starch
1 cup epsom salt
1 cup citric acid
1 tsp sodium lauryl sulfoacetate (Optional)
2 tbsp coconut oil
2 tsp witch hazel or water 
1-2 tsp fragrance oil or essential oil (I used Wood Spice essential oil)
green mica


For the bath bombs first mix all of the dry ingredients except for the citric acid. You want to mix wet and dry ingredients separately and then mix them together then, add citric acid. This makes it so the reaction with the baking soda and citric acid doesn't start when you add your wet ingredients. After everything is mixed you want your mixture to be similar to wet sand and stick together on its own.

When I mold my bath bombs I lightly overfill both sides and then push them together. If you want to make sure your bath bomb stays together, you can lightly tap one side of the mold with a spoon, take the mold off, then check if the bath bomb is still together. After molding your bath bomb, secure your mold with a hair tie.


Let your bath bombs dry in the mold for 24 hours until you remove the molds. You can lightly tap the mold with a spoon to loosen the mold. (sometimes you need to let your bath bombs dry for a while after you have removed them from the molds)

After they have dried you can paint the Xbox lines on the sides of the bath bomb by mixing a little coconut oil with the green micas. (once mixed they should look like a paint). Then decorate your bath bomb and let paint dry for about an hour before using or gifting.

DIY Guardians of the Galaxy Soy-Wax Candles




Things you will need
Soy wax Candle Jars (I re-used jars and lids from old candles I used up)
fragrance
I used
Groot-
Wood spice
Star-Lord- Black Cinnamon
Yondu- Cool Waters
Wax melting potcandle wicks
labels (I made mine on Avery.com)





This was a pretty easy project, and also pretty self explanatory, but I will explain what I did and give you some
tips and tricks to help ensure your candles turn out beautiful.

First you need to get your candle jars ready to go. If you re-use jars like I did you will want to make sure your jars are cleaned out completely and your jars are dry. Next you want to put the wick in you candle. I just used hot glued them to the bottom of
the glass.



Now its time to melt your wax. I didn't use an exact measurement because your wax amount will very depending on the size of your jar. A good trick is to fill the jar up with the wax chips and then add a little more to make sure you have enough. then start melting the wax chips down. (I used a double boiler method for this).

Once your wax is all melted its time to stir in your fragrance oil. This also will very depending on the size. But a good
guide is to add 1oz of fragrance for every 12oz of wax. (also check the flash point on your fragrance oil to make sure your candle stays fragrant)

Now its time to pour your wax into your candle jar. Another good tip is to hold your candle wicks in place by wrapping them around a
straw or pen.

let the wax dry before trimming the wicks. And after that you are good to go:)

Heart Throb Bubble Bars



Bubble Bar Recipe

Dry ingredents
1 cup sodium lauryl sulfoacetate (SLSA)
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup corn starch

1/2 cup cream of tarter 

Wet ingredients
1/2 cup liquid glycerin
1 tbsp oil (I used olive oil)
1 tbsp water
1 tsp fragrance oil (I used Juicy Couture)
Pink food coloring 

Decorations

Small heart cookie cutter
snowflake sparkle Mica

First, I put the dry
ingredients in my kitchen aid and move on to the wet ingredients. With the wet ingredients you want to first measure them out and then stir them together until all ingredients are well incorporated. This is really important because if you don't mix them first your bubble bars won't stick together. Next, you want to mix wet and dry ingredients. When mixing everything together you will want to cover your kitchen aid because the SLSA can get into the air and make you cough and cause discomfort (some people like to wear a mask when working with SLSA but that is optional). After mixing everything you are ready to mold your bubble bars. Note if your mixture is not sticking together now it won't stick together later so you need to add more glycerin until a dough like consistency is achieved. 


Next I rolled my mixture into balls and flattened them out, then covered them in the silver mica. Then I used my heart cookie cutter to put a heart on the top.

Let dry for a few hours before using or gifting. (this could take a few days)

To use
Hold bubble bar under running water and watch the bubbles form:) Be careful, your tub may become slick when using bath products like this.
