What woman doesn’t love bubble baths? They’re great for relieving stress and relaxing, and they can be very romantic. Luckily, it’s also fairly easy to create your own luxurious bath whether you create homemade bath bombs or you make your own solid bubble bath bars at home. This allows you to customize your bubble bath and save money. Plus, it’s fun!  I know I LOVE making these, and it also just feels so good after a long day of hopping into the tub.

Homemade Bubble Bath

Here are the ingredients you’ll need:

  • 3 Cup – Baking Soda
  • 1 Cup – Cream of Tartar
  • 1 Cup – Glycerin Liquid
  • 1 tsp. – Water-Based Soap Colorant
  • 2 Tbs – Fragrance of your Choice

The first thing you must do is make sure to wash your hands very well. You don’t want to be putting dirt or bacteria into your soap as you make it. I also recommend that you wear a pair of thing rubber gloves too when preparing the soap. You don’t want the colorant to dye your skin.

Now, grab a large bowl and mix together all of the dry bubble bath bar ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Use your hands to do this. Don’t use a kitchen mixer. Make sure you blend everything together well so that there are no lumps.

Next, add your liquid coolant to your bubble bath mixture. Make sure that you don’t use too much dye because you don’t want it to stain your tub!  I usually try to mach the color to the fragrance I’m using. Don’t use a red colorant if you’re using a citrus fragrance.

Now you can add the fragrance. I usually add around 2 Tbs, which is approximately 60 drops from the eye dropper. I think this will depend on how you like your bubble bath to smell. Mix everything together.

You’re now ready to add your homemade bubble bath mixture to a loaf pan. It often takes me two loaf pans here. Let the mixture sit in the loaf pan for about an hour and it should begin to set. Once your bubble bath loaf is firm you can remove it from the pan. Use a sharp knife to cut the loaf. I usually cut them into slices just like I would a pumpkin bread loaf.

After cutting, place the slices on wax paper on cookie sheets. Let them dry overnight and they should harden and cure. Wrap them in cellophane or bag them in plastic baggies. Store them in a cool, dry place. Your homemade bubble bath bars should last you about three months. This is just a beginner recipe and instructions that I put together.
