Trying to improve my life
I haven’t posted anything crafty in awhile. This post is from my online store’s blog.

I admit it. I was bored. So I decided to make some bubble bars. They are really easy and fun to make.
The following is a simple basic bubble bar recipe, that once mastered, can be altered by additional ingredients to create a custom bubble bar.
What you will need to get started:
1 Cup SLSA (Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate)
1 Cup Baking Soda
1/3 Cup Cream of Tartar
1/3 Cup Cornstarch
1 Tablespoon Tapioca Starch
1/3 Cup Vegetable Glycerin (more maybe needed)
1 Tablespoon Moisturizing Oil
2 Teaspoons of Fragrance or Essential Oils
5-10 Drops Coloring (Food Coloring, Lab Color, La Bomb Color)
1 Painters Mask or Medical Mask
Gloves (may need additional gloves depending on how many colors are being used)
Large Bowls (may need additional bowls depending on how many colors are being used)
Combine the SLSA, Baking Soda, Cream of Tartar, and Cornstarch in a large bowl by hand or with a wisk (it is not recommended to use an electric mixer because that can send the powder into the air). You may want to wear a mask because these ingredients are powdery and may irritate sensitive people.
Next, mix the fragrance with the Tapioca Starch and add to the other ingredients.
Add the glycerin, oil and fragrance and mix to the right consistency. The dough should clump together.
Add in the color and knead until the color is evenly dispersed.
Form the bubble bars into whatever shape you want. You can use a silicone mold, cookie cutters or just hand form.
Allow the bars to dry for at least 2 hours before cutting. After the bars have been cut continue to let them dry for a couple more hours.
Crumble a 1 oz bar under running water. You may need more or less depending on bubble preference and water pressure.

Note: Please read the ingredient list carefully and do a skin patch test to avoid an allergic reaction. If a rash or skin irritation appears do not use. Consult a licensed medical physician.
