A bit of mickey, salt, essential oils and soap making magic and you get unusual sparkling bath crystals. Please yourself or prepare for a gift to your loved ones. In the recipe, it is better to use mica rather than pigments, since it has fewer particles and they will dissolve better in the bathroom. And so, how to make flickering crystals of salt for the bathroom with your own hands, read below:
You will need:
- 2 cans containing 250 grams
- 455 g – large salt crystals
- 3 ml – essential oils to choose from
- 2 ml – Polysorbate 80
- Purple mica
- Pearl mica
- White glitter
- Gloves and Pipette
Step-by-step recipe for making bath crystals from salt
- Place the bathroom crystals in a container in which you will further mix the ingredients. Using a pipette, add, evenly distributing the essential oils by capacity, and with a gloved hand, mix the salt evenly and do so until the essential oil is consumed. This way you can flavor all the salt. In the same way, using a different pipette, add Polysorbate 80 to different areas of the tank to salt and oil.
- To make all the salts come in contact with the oil, continue to mix the salt in the cup with your hand for 1-2 minutes.
- When the salt and oils are well mixed, sprinkle a small amount of violet mica on the salt and begin to mix by hand. It is always better to add a mic, so start with a small amount and gradually add it so that you can achieve the desired color.
- Continue mixing the salt with the mica until the mixture is evenly colored. We recommend not to add too many micas, so that it does not settle on the edges of the bathroom. It is better not to get enough a little bit than to fill in more.
- Once you are satisfied with the resulting color, add a pearl-colored miku to the mixture and mix well. White mica will give your crystals some volume and extra shine..
- Now add a little glitter, mix well again. Now your flickering crystals are ready. Pour them into a jar with a tight-fitting lid..
It is very important to add Polysorbate 80 in this recipe, since without it the mic is unevenly distributed in water in the circles of oils. An example of the distribution of micas with and without Polysorbate is shown in the photo below:
Use flickering crystals to take a bath. Add them to hot water. Enjoy!
