Black Salt Bath Bomb DIY
Have you ever heard of black salt? I had not until I saw this recipe from The Soap Queen for Black Salt Bath Bomb. IF you decide to use charcoal in this recipe, Polysorbate 80 is key in this recipe. Polysorbate 80 is an emulsifier that helps mix the charcoal into the water, resulting in less charcoal on your skin and tub.
I have a B.A. in Mass Communication and took my first melt and pour soapmaking class in 2002. Since then I got hooked making my own bath and products. I have taken various courses in Soapmaking (Melt & Pour, Cold Process, Hot Process), lotion making (lotions, creams, lotion sticks), bath products (bath salts, body scrubs), body products (lip balm, body butters, body balms, whipped butters) and more. Most of all of my classes were taught by Lori Nova of The Nova Studio in Point Richmond, Ca. I have taught courses since 2004 at various locations. I have worked as an Event Coordinator at Michaels Redwood City.
