DIY Bubble Bars

If you have ever been to LUSH than you have seen a bubble bar.  If you haven’t been to LUSH let me explain to you about this awesome product. A bubble bar is a crumbly bar that when added to a warm bath, turns your ordinary bath into an amazing, good smelling, colorful bubble bath! They are similar to a bath bomb because they use a lot of the same ingredients but it has WAY more bubbles!

Ingredients

  • Mixing Bowls
  • Gloves
  • Face Mask
  • Food Coloring
  • 1 Cup SLSA
  • 1/2 Cup Vegetable Glycerin
  • 1 Tbs Olive oil
  • 1/3 Cup Corn Starch
  • 1/3 Cup Cream of Tartar
  • Essential oil
  • 1 Cup Baking Soda
  • Non Toxic Glitter
  • Star Sugar peices

Here is the How to Video

Step 1: Add All Dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl.  Make sure to wear a face mask and gloves when dealing with SLSA, this is the ingredient that makes it bubble.

Step 2: Add your wet ingredients

Step 3: Stir…forever, it seemed to take a long time to incorporate it all, you want it to be a crumbly play-doh consistency when its done.  I had to add a little extra glycerin, to get it to that point.

Step 4: Separate into equal parts and set in different bowls and mix in your food coloring.

Step 5: Put down a piece of parchment paper and dust some baking soda on it to keep it from sticking. If you are wanting to make the unicorn horn version like in the video you need to roll small pieces of each color and then mold into the horn shape. Please see how to video for full instructions. If you want to do it Cinnamon roll style you need to roll each color out flat, stack them and roll it all up, just like you would a cinnamon roll. Then you slice them into little bars, or cinnamon rolls. For the finishing touches add star sprinkles and glitter.  The star sprinkles are for cakes or cookies but since they are made out of sugar they will melt away in warm water so they are safe to use for bubble bars.

Step 6: Let Dry overnight

Step 7: They are ready to use in a bath now, all you do is crumble the desired amount into the bath and watch your water change color and bubble!  bubblebar
