Goat Milk Bath Bomb: Are these really the Best Bath Bombs?
Bath Bombs remain ubber popular, with thousands upon thousands of people searching and ordering them everything month. Ever since they became popular it seems people have tried to one up LUSH, who are one of the first companies that really took them mainstream.
You can literally find bath bombs in almost any shape and size, fragrance, design, even some with toys and rings inside of them. Kids love bath bombs as they get excited when it starts to fizz and change the water different colors.
One of the more recent types of bath bombs that I have seen are goat milk bath bombs. This seems to be the latest craze. So, are they really the best bath bombs now? How does goat milk benefit the skin?
Long story short, it depends. Some people swear by these hot selling bath bombs that they take the bath experience up even another notch past ones made with other skin conditioning ingredients.
Truth of the matter is, it's a total opinion based question. These bath bombs can be made with either goat milk or goat milk powder, as we're personally unable to tell the difference when actually using each.
Most of our bath bombs have relatively similar ingredients, however for these bath bombs we do like to change things up a bit in the carrier oils we use and some other ingredients.
Another note about these goat milk bath bombs is that they usually are a bit heavier then our other bath bombs we've discussed, as we use a little more clay and heavier oils so they do tend to sink in water. So if you're looking for a floating, spinning bath bomb, these may not be your first choice.
The thing about bath bombs is that there is no right way or wrong way, it's completely dependent on what the customer is looking for. Do you want a bath bomb that is spinning and floating while shooting out all sorts of colors/embeds, or do you want just one that's going to leave your skin silky smooth with beautiful aromas, using heavier clay's and oils?
With all that said let's discuss some of the things you will need for these goat milk bath bombs.
- Sodium Bicarbonate - 2 Cups
- Citric Acid - 1 Cup
- Oatmeal Colloidal - 1 oz.
- Goat milk powder - 1/3 Cup
- Milk powder - 1 TBSP
- Cocoa Butter - 2 oz.
- Shea Butter - 2oz.
- Kaolin Clay - 1/2 tsp
- Cream of Tartar - 1/2 tsp
- Polysorbate 80 - 1 oz.
- Skin Safe Fragrance - Lavender Vanilla 0.7 oz.
- Color (Purple Mica) - Optional
- Spray Bottle with Witch Hazel or water
- Measuring Cups
- Measuring Spoons
- 2 Mixing Bowls
- Face Mask
- Spray bottle
- Stainless Steel 3 oz. round bath bomb mold
In one mixing bowl bring together all of your dry ingredients. This will include your Sodium Bicarb, Citric acid, oatmeal colloidal, goat milk powder, milk powder, kaolin clay, cream of tartar, and mica (if using colorant). Mix well, get out any lumps of the mixture, you can optionally use a sifter to help with this process.
Mix together all of you wet ingredients (you will first have to melt down you shea butter, & cocoa butter in the microwave to liquefy it). This includes your shea butter, cocoa butter, polysorbate 80 and fragrance of choice, in this case lavender vanilla. You can also use essential oils in this step. We recommend about 20 - 25 drops however, so it can go quick.
Once you have all your wet ingredients in one bowl and dry in another, pour your wet into your dry and begin to mix immediately so no reaction beings to occur or fizzing.
Once this is mixed well, you can begin to add your sprays of witch hazel or water. We like to start with around 5 sprays for this amount of mixture. If this is your first time making a bath bomb, you may want to do 3 to start and get a feel for the changing texture.
After every few sprays grab a handful of mixture, and squeeze. If it stays together, your mixture is ready to be molded!
Grab one half of the mold. Overfill with your mixture. Set down.
Grab your other half of the mold and do the same thing.
Pick up both halves and press together tightly for roughly 5 - 10 seconds. Tap the top piece of mold with a wooden spoon. Take the top piece off.
Tap the bottom half of the mold. Turn the mold over in your hand and it should slide out. If not give it a few more taps.
Sit on egg foam or something else soft, as the goat milk bath bomb may break or crumble if sat on a hard surface at this time.
Allow to dry 24 - 48 hours in an area of your house with humidity preferably under 40%
This goat milk bath bombs includes several more ingredients then our standard bath bombs and ones in which we have discussed as w want an extremely smooth and soothing experience for your skin (with the clay, goat milk and shea butter) all of which will help in providing that experience.
