Here's a couple new recipes to whip up some exfoliating, scoop-able soap! Whip, fragrance, colour, add some scrubbies and pot them up - they are ready immediately for your own bathroom, or for gift giving. Once whipped, our Foamy Bath Butter has a mousse-like texture, never separates and rinses clean. The result is a whipped, light textured and exfoliating cleansing cream soap. Though a single batch makes 550g, it whips into nearly double in volume.
There are a few variations to try, all so simple! The formula includes Oliv-Esters, and the variations are switching the fixed oil, from Camellia to Apricot Kernel, and different colours and scents. We used Cranberry Pomegranate, Crisp Anjou Pear and Lavender and Green Tea Fragrance, they are just delish and each leaves a fresh and clean feeling after use.
Jojoba Bead Foamy Scrub Tubs
Even if you don’t make soap, you’ll love the creative gifts you can make with Foamy Bath Butter. Foaming Bath Butter is so versatile and soooo easy, you can make so many foaming products with it! Each recipe only uses 500g, because you’ll probably want to make a second batch in the second scent and colour!
The scent and colours have been chosen with the festive season in mind, but of course you can choose any colour and scent combination you like. For the Red Jojoba beads, I like a pale pink background, but the white also is resonant of Candy Canes! Also perfect for our hot and sunny Christmas time are Gelati Colours partnered with fruity scents, yum, and you just need to use a little more colour Liquid Brites for Melt & Pour Soap to achieve those luscious Gelati colours, but these batches I decided on pastel tones.
- An electric mixer – hand held is fine, with balloon type whisk, NOT a stick blender
- Ziplock bags for piping into containers or a spoon
- Plastic spatula
- Thermometer is useful, but not essential
- Chop Foamy Bath Butter and place in mixing bowl – make sure there is plenty of mixing space in the bowl
- Begin beating the unmelted base. It will be quite stiff. If using a handheld mixer, you may need to scrape out the inside of the beaters, if using a larger mixer such as a Kenwood or Kitchenmaid, use the K style beater initially and then switch to the balloon whisk
- Measure the Apricot Kernel Oil (or Camellia Oil) and Oliv-Esters and warm slightly as this helps loosen the mixture, but not melt it
- Add the Fixed Oil and Esters and continue beating until it is light and fluffy, scraping the beater and sides of the bowl as necessary
- Drip in some colour, start with 2 or 3 drops and work up because you want a pastel tone so the jojoba beads show nicely
- Now mix in the fragrance well and give the mixture a little more beating
- Add the Jojoba beads, you may like a little more or less than I use, the choice is yours, mix through and you are done!
- Now package into tubs or jars. There are two ways of doing this, either using a spoon, or you can pipe the whipped soap into the tubs using the Ziplock Bag method we use for Moisturisers. The ziplock instructions are on this link for tubes, but the method remains the same. See this like for our Mess Free Method for Filling Malibu Tubes here
If you want to make the deeper green, more minty, and not end up with lime green Gelati shades look at the graphic below, No. 1 has just Brites NG Lime, but No. 2 is an even ratio of Brites NG Lime and Brites NG Sky Blue, making a lovely subtle difference.
If using "Add to Trolley" ingredients for the Pink Cranberry Pomegranate Soap will be added - adjust or add to these if you want to make the Green batch too!
