15ml/3tsp water or witch hazel(add slowly with a spray bottle)
1-2 tablespoons of Cocoa Butter
1/2 tsp ylang ylang oil
1/4 tsp baby powder fragrance oil
(or: 1tsp of your favorite fragrance or essential oil)
NOTE: some people say that Witch Hazel creates a stronger bind than water for keeping a bomb together. If using Witch Hazel in your bath bomb, either use a spray bottle or add a few drops at a time while mixing constantly and checking consistency by squeezing with your hand. When it holds together- stop adding hazel. Do not add both water and hazel.
mix all dry ingredients in one bowl.
mix all wet ingredients, minus the water (includes melted cocoa butter) in another bowl.
mix the two together
slowly add the water in as you stir the mixture. Be careful, too much water will activate the fizzy action. I like to use a spray bottle.
mold ( use our 1.75" diameter mold) and let dry overnight
Make sure to use extra caution when mixing the citric acid- it will sting if you have any open cuts or cuticle abrasions. It’s recommended to use gloves once you add it. Be careful as always when getting in and out of the tub- remember that you did just add oil to the water, which may cling to the tub and create a slippery surface.

Works great on insect bites, bee stings, burns. Also has great antiseptic properties works great for cuts, scrapes & post wound care.

Coconut and Lime Sugar Scrub Ingredients: 1/4 cup organic coconut oil 1/2 cup granulated sugar zest from one lime 1- 2 drops of Lime essential oil 1-2 drops of Toasted Coconut fragrance oil All supplies available to make this recipe at www.pinemeadows.net Place oil, sugar, and lime zest* in a bowl. *If you’re not using a microplane grater to zest the lime, you may want to use a knife to chop it even more finely before adding to the mix. Stir to combine, and if desired, add additional coconut oil to reach desired consistency. Add lime and coconut oils to smell. You may store at room temperature for several weeks (I like to keep a jar in my shower). Use scrub to gently exfoliate skin. Rinse skin clean with warm water and then massage in oils left on skin for a soft, silky finish. Yield: about 3/4 cup sugar scrub. Package in our 4, or 8 oz clear PET jars to avoid any glass from breaking in the tub/shower. Note: You can use fine sea salt in place of the sugar if you prefer.
Use approximately 1/2 teaspoon per pound of fats/oils. Results vary but most of the natural colorants have a slightly speckled look to them. You could infuse the colors into the oils and strain as well to minimize this look.
1. Tumeric powder - results in a speckled light orangish color.
2. Rosehip powder - results in a purplish light mauve color.
3. Alkanet powder- results in a speckled purplish gray color.
4. Annatto powder - results in a dark tangerine orange color.
5. Parsley powder - results in a speckled greenish color.
