Along with the two soaps I made this weekend, I also got 6 batches of mondo bath bombs done for my sister’s upcoming birthday. Last weekend I made one more, so that is a total of 7 batches (at 7 to 8 bombs each) for a grand total of 51 bath bombs! If that is not a happy birthday, then I don’t know what is!
To be fair though, she doesn’t get to keep all of them. She has two daughters and three grand-daughters to share with. She gets a lot of enjoyment, though, from being the one who is the “keeper of the bath bomb stash”.
Now that I got that behind me, I still have to make her some oatmeal, milk and honey balm and whipped body butter. That, and I usually make them all a little wristlet purse and some sort of crazy pillow-case, so next weekend, I will have to spend my time sewing. I don’t care for sewing in the summer very much (all that ironing really heats up my sewing room), so I usually sew all these things over the winter and spring. This year, however, I was busy making lotions and didn’t do it. Now I will have to brave the heat and get it done in a rush.
She will also be the recipient of most of the lotions and soaps I have been making over the past few months. I could never use that many lotions before they go bad, but she and her crew will put them to good use.
Anyhow… back to the bath bombs:
Oatmeal, Milk & Honey Milk Bath Bomb
Made with cocoa butter, sunflower oil and Brambleberry’s “Oatmeal, Milk & Honey Cybilla” fragrance. Topped with oatmeal.
Hot Apple Pie Bubble Butter Bath Bomb
Made with cocoa butter, shea butter, sweet almond oil, SLSA (for bubbles) and scented with Brambleberry’s “Hot Apple Pie” fragrance oil.
American Cream Bubble Butter Bomb
Made with cocoa and shea butters, fractionated coconut oil, and SLSA (for bubbles) and scented with Nurture Soap’s “American Cream” fragrance oil.
Frozen Glitter Bath Bomb
Made with sweet almond oil and scented with Nurture Soap’s “Frozen” fragrance oil. The blue part has iridescent glitter incorporated in the mixture, so they sparkle like the snow.
Avobath Bath Bomb
Made with fractionated coconut oil and scented with Nurture Soap’s “Avobath Type” fragrance oil.
Yuzu Bath Bomb
Made with apricot kernel oil and scented with Brambleberry’s “Yuzu” fragrance oil. Topped with dried cornflowers.
Whew! That was a lot of bath bombs in one weekend. I was really cranking them out! I am glad that is done, but I still have to wrap and package them and figure out what size basket I am going to need to hold all this stuff for her.
She’s a lucky girl to have a sister like me (I keep telling her). 🙂 But if you can’t spoil your little sister, what good is life?
