Bath Bomb Cupcakes

With the holidays fast approaching we all will be frantically searching for

the perfect gifts for our friends and loved ones.  Bath Bomb cupcakes are my

absolute favorite thing to make. Not only are they cute as can be but they

can be tailored to your liking.   You will certainly be the rave at the company

party this year!  When I want a vacation at home this is the thing that does it

for me.  They scent the air and your bath water and make the environment

so intoxicatingly inviting. It’s the way I relax and renew.  They are filled

with essential oils and shea butter, cocoa butter or any other oil to

moisturize for your skin.  They have a nice foam and leave your skin feeling

oh so soft and smooth.  Not only do these cupcake bath bombs make a most

thoughtful gift but the next time you want to pamper yourself drop one in

the tub of warm running water and watch the foam and fizz do its thing.   To

make the perfect bath bomb cupcakes you will need to allow for time as

follows:

  • 1 day – bath bombs setting up in the mold
  • 3 days – bath bombs drying out before frosting
  • 15 minutes – in the freezer after frosting
  • 1 day – after frosting before adding ‘embellishments’
  • 2-3 days after adding the drizzle (or polka dots) before packaging

That means it can take as long as 8 days from start to finish of the Perfect

Bath Fizzy Cupcake. If you’re shipping your Bath Fizzy Cupcakes, you’ll

want to take the extra time to make sure they’re beefy enough to make it to

their destination intact so plan ahead.  Here’s a cool video tutorial on how to

frost the perfect bath fizzy.

Why I started a Blog

I started this blog to promote and blog about my business Khameleonic Kreations.  Khameleonic Kreations is a company that I started so that I could make bath products for my family that were safe and natural.  My children all had sensitive skin that was easily irritated by most products.  I was not satisfied with the mass-produced products that were on the market that not only contained ingredients that I could not even pronounce, but also many times they contained chemicals that were downright dangerous. So I decided to try my hand at making it myself so I could control what was going into it, and narrow down what was causing my family’s skin problems.  After many many months of researching, reading, and experimenting I came up with what I thought was a pretty good product that not only smelled pretty nice but it did not leave my family’s skin so dry and it cleaned well too.  And guess what?! No more skin problems.  I wish I had known this years ago when I had my first child and I would have saved myself so much time, money, and heartache.
I started out giving away what my family didn’t use and the requests started coming in, and a business was born.  My goal is to not only offer people a high-quality product but to also educate them and share what I have learned along the way.   We put a lot of thought into what we feed our families but not as much about what we put on our bodies. What we put on our bodies also goes into our bodies! Therefore we should give just as much attention to what we are exposing our skin to as to what we are putting into our bodies.

One of the main products that I make is handmade soaps.  They are made in small batches by hand.  There are many good reasons to use handmade soap instead of the sometimes cheaper mass-produced soap.  With handmade soap, you know exactly what you’re putting on your skin.  Handmade soap is made without a lot of the harsh toxic chemicals that mass produced soap very often contain. Most of the soaps that I make are scented with 100% therapeutic grade Essential Oils. Essential Oils not only smell great but they also have many therapeutic qualities and can help adjust your mood.

Formaldehyde is a chemical that is used in mass-produced soap as well as many other beauty products including baby shampoo!  So what exactly is Formaldehyde?  Formaldehyde is a colorless gas with a pungent odor that is used as a disinfectant, a preservative and a precursor for various resins in construction products.  It is highly toxic and used All OVER THE WORLD. And if that’s not enough to convince you about the dangers of this chemical maybe this will; It has been labeled as a known human carcinogen by the U.S. National Toxicology Program.    Even at very low levels, some people will experience reactions to formaldehyde including watery eyes, nausea, difficulty breathing, burning in the eyes and throat, coughing, and rashes. My handmade soaps are formaldehyde free and made in the USA.

Products sold in the United States, Canada, China, Indonesia, and Australia contain a chemical called quaternium-15 which is a chemical preservative that kills bacteria by releasing formaldehyde.  Interestingly enough some of the same products that are sold in the UK, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, the Netherlands, and Japan contain non-formaldehyde preservatives. Since when did the US and China become on equal footing as far as safety and quality are concerned. Just because handmade soap doesn’t contain all the harsh chemicals and fragrances does not mean that it has to be boring.  In fact, it is the complete opposite!  I mentioned earlier that my soaps are scented with essential oils.

     So what are Essential Oils? Essential Oils are concentrated botanical oils that retain properties of the plants from which they are extracted.  Essential oils such as eucalyptus, lavender, and rosemary are antimicrobial and antibacterial and can be excellent for freshening up around the house.  Tea tree essential oil, in addition, banishing bacteria and microbes is anti-fungal and anti-viral.  Some calming essential oils are chamomile, juniper, lavender, lemon balm, lemongrass, and ylang-ylang.  Some uplifting ones are eucalyptus, grapefruit, lime, peppermint, and vetiver.
