Thumprint Bath Cookies

"Perfect for the Bath"
"Perfect as Room Fresheners"


3/4 Cup Crafter's Choice European Salts - Fine Grain
1 Cup Crafter's Choice Cornstarch
1/2 Cup Crafter's Choice Buttermilk Powder
3 oz Crafter's Choice Rice Bran Oil
2 oz Crafter's Choice Shea Butter - Refined
1 Cup Crafter's Choice Baking Soda
1/2 Cup Crafter's Choice Citric Acid
5 tsp Crafter's Choice Fragrance Oil
1 oz Crafter's Choice Extra Clear Soap BaseLiquid Lake Colors


Over a low heat, warm shea butter and rice bran oil until melted. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Add fragrance and set aside. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. In a bowl mix salt, buttermilk powder and cornstarch. Break up any clumps. In a separate bowl, mix baking soda and citric acid. Combine with salt mixture. Pour melted oil mixture into dry ingredients.

Mix quickly (use gloved covered hands if necessary). Make tablespoon sized balls from mixture. If mixture does not stick together, add a little more rice bran oil. Place on waxed paper and flatten gently. For the thumbprint well, gently press thumb down in the middle of the cookie.

For cookie toppings, melt 1 oz of Crafter's Choice Extra Clear Melt and Pour Soap in the microwave. Add desired Liquid Lake Colors. Allow soap to sit and thicken. Pour thickened soap over bath cookie. Allow to completely harden for 24 hours. Package as desired.

These cookies are sure to be quick sellers. Tell your customers to drop one in the bath tub before taking their long relaxing warm bath. They will fizz and fill the room with a wonderful aroma. They look and smell DELICIOUS!

Recipe makes approximately 40 bath cookies.
