What is a bubble bar?

As a solid form of bubble bath, bubble bars are called a variety of names, including bath truffles, bubble scoops, ice cream scoops, bubble bath scoops, or solid bubble baths. They all work the same way, regardless of what they are called. You can customize them according to your individual preferences, as they are made from readily available ingredients.

In order to make the bubble scoops, you need baking soda, citric acid, fragrance or essential oil, and a blend of butters such as cocoa, shea or mango butter as the base ingredients. It is a perfect way to give yourself some extra self-care by adding one of these bath time treats to your tub. And best of all, you can make it yourself.

You can create the perfect experience, by customizing the scent, color, and additives of the bubble bar based on your preferences.

Benefits of Making DIY Bubble Scoops

You can save money, customize your own creations and get creative with bubble scoops. With a few simple steps and a bit of creativity, you can create your own bath time masterpiece. Whether you’re looking for an invigorating lemon scent or a calming lavender fragrance, you can easily find the exact ingredients to make your bubble bar fit your wants. Plus, with all the money saved from not having to buy pre-made bubble scoops, you can invest in other luxuries for your bath time experience. So start saving some cash and get creative with your own handmade bath truffles.

Since you can customize them, you can make them to your exact specifications. Whether you want a floral, fruity, or sweet scent, the possibilities are virtually endless. You can even add some color to your bubble bars by adding mica colorants, clays or skin-safe pigments. Plus, you don’t have to worry about finding the perfect ingredients since most of them can be found at your local grocery store. 

DIY bubble bars are also a fun and creative way to relax and pamper yourself at home and make your day special. It’s an easy and fun craft that can be as simple or as complex as you want it to be. 

How to Make Your Own Bubble Bars At home

Have you ever wondered what it takes to make your own bubble bars? It’s much simpler than you think – all you need is a few household items, some creative flare and a splash of your favorite essential oil or fragrance. 

What You will need

  • 1 ounce Cocoa Butter
  • 1 ounce Shea butter
  • 10 Ounces Baking Soda
  • 5.5 Ounces Citric Acid
  • 3 Ounces SLSA
  • 3 Teaspoons colorant (optional)
  • 1 oz Fragrance oil
  • 1/2 oz of Polysorbate 80

This recipe will make approximately 24 bubble scoops

How to make the Bubble Scoops

  1.  Melt Cocoa butter and shea butter, set aside
  2. Combine and mix baking soda, citric acid, colorant and SLSA (wear a face mask until all ingredients mixed with liquid ingredients)
  3. Pour melted cocoa butter and shea butter mixture into dry ingredients
  4. Add fragrance oil and poly 80
  5. Mix well until it feels like cookie dough
  6. Using a cookie dough scooper or ice cream scooper, scoop into bath balls
  7. Let dry overnight and Enjoy

Tips and Tricks for Using DIY Bubble Bars

SLSA is one of the ingredients that can be irritating to the throat. I recommend wearing a mask while mixing the ingredients to prevent coughing. Once you add the wet ingredients this will not be an issue. Also, you can add colorants and essential oils to give your bubble bars an extra boost of scent and visual appeal. I always incorporate my colorant with my dry ingredients. I find that it allows for a more event distribution of the color. You also want to ensure the scent lasts for a long time so be sure to store your bubble bars in an airtight container. 

When you are ready to use the bubble scoops, hold a scoop under your running bath water and crumble it. It will create a luxurious bubble bath for you to relax and enjoy. If you have added color or scent it will turn the color of the water and fill your bathroom with the aroma you selected.
