Bubble Bar Recipes

Over on our Facebook page we've long been having discussions about how to make the best bubble bars.  Opinions and experiences vary as with most crafting adventures.
However we've been luck enough to have one of our members contribute a successful recipe and she's kindly agreed to share it with everyone.

Nicola from the Soap And Card Shack - Brackley - has recently opened a bricks and mortar shop where these gorgeous bars are selling really well.  If you can't wait and would like to try some for yourself, you can contact Nicola through her website or via her Facebook page Soapandcardshack-brackley

Nicola's Recipe for Bubble Bars

250g Bicarbonate of Soda

100g Citric Acid

50g SLS Noodles <<< please read this before proceeding

8ml Fragrance or Essential Oil of your choice

Colour - any cosmetic/toiletry grade colour (if using ultramarine blue please choose acid resistant)
Combine all dry ingredients thoroughly.  Add colour if desired, fragrance and mix well.   Bind with a few spritzes of water.
You will find that the noodles do not take up the colour therefore you will have a mottled effect to your bars.  Press into a suitable mould or form into shapes by hand.  Allow to dry before wrapping.
Thanks Nicola for sharing.  We'd love to hear your comments and recipe ideas - please do post below.
