Bubbling Bath Cookies

What You Need

1/2 teaspoon fragrance or essential oil
1/2 teaspoon liquid water based soap dye
1/2 teaspoon liquid glycerin
2 teaspoons propylene glycol
1/2 cup (60 grams) Bubble Bath Flake (sodium laurel sulfoacetate)
Wax Paper
Cookie Cutters (Linzer cutters work best)

How to Do It

Place your first four ingredients in a small bowl. Swirl around to mix altogether. Next add your Bubble Bath Flake. Mix well with your hands. Mixture will be crumbly. Take the mixture and pour out onto waxed paper. mixture will remain crumbly so you will need to scoop it into a ball-like shape and press flat to about 1/4" thick. Carefully, but firmly press your cookie cutter into the flattened mixture. Don't lift the cutter, rather push your cookie to the side of the wax paper before releasing where it can set up. Pull the remaining mixture together again and repeat until you have completed all of your cookies. Let sit at least 24 hours before packaging.

To use, depending on the size of your cookie you may wish to break off pieces and place in bath under rapidly running water or place two or three smaller cookies under running water.
