Handmade Beauty Box- January 2015

Today is a good day and I feel like passing the goodies onto you! Today the January HBB video is live for your viewing pleasure! Although I’ll admit my editing software gave me a really hard time with this one! 😦 I tried to smooth it out the best I could but it’s not winning any gold medals in editing. This month was bath bombs with an almost tiger-like stripe design! I’m going to be the first to admit it: I HATE bath bombs! They can be very picky about the climate they work in and just a basic baking soda/citric acid recipe almost never gives you the best results! My experiences were never good with them. Most soap makers I know use a combination of hard oils and butters to keep their mixture solid so I recommend looking to them for recipes and advice. I’ll keep trying until I find the perfect recipe! But don’t expect them in my Etsy shop unless I find the perfect recipe! 😛

I did try out these bath bombs while I spent long nights editing and banging my head on my desk! I’m not a lavender fan (love the plant! Hate the oils!) because every lavender fragrance I’ve ever tried has left me with severe headaches! Not the case in the tub! They fizzled out nicely with a nice blue tint in my tub! No stains on the tub after I washed either! The scent was good but not overwhelming (the instructions say you can double the fragrance from 4 ml per container to 8). Haven’t tried the December soaps yet! I might send some to my family back home for them to try out!

 

Enjoy!
