Halloween Treats: Electric Slime Wash
Halloween brings haunting laughter, spooky sighs, and creaking sounds. To celebrate the goofy science experiments, bubbling potion cauldrons, and smoking beakers, I wanted to make this slime inspired body wash. This neon green concoction has a little sparkle from the Silver Mica and will appeal to the mad scientist in your life.
I was a little stumped on which fragrance to choose for the samples I’ll be sending out with orders, I finally decided that my best option was to choose a fragrance that I considered to be a green scent. After ruling out Cucumber as a smell that was too fresh and springy, I settled on The Meadow for its earthy and slightly electrifying aroma.
Join me in the blog kitchen with a Water Soluble Colorant Kit, some Body Wash Base, and your favorite fragrance! We’ll quickly whip up a batch for Halloween party favors and even as little non-food treats for the kids out trick-or-treating.
Body Wash Base
The Meadow Fragrance
Lemon Yellow Dye, premixed with water *
Grape Dye, premixed with water *
1 gallon Pump
1 oz Dropper Bottles
Containers of your choice (I used 8 oz Boston Round Bottles and Black High Viscosity Pumps.)
Recipe: (Makes approximately 8 fl oz or 236 milliliters)
Recipe in volume:
8 fl oz Body Wash Base
2 mL The Meadow Fragrance
~ 18 drops Premixed Lemon Yellow Dye
~ 4 drops of Premixed Grape Dye
~ 0.30 cc of Silver Mica
*To get my premixed colors, I mixed 1/2 tsp of dry dye with 1 fl oz of water to get my colors. If you purchase the Water Soluble Colorant Kit, you will get a 1 oz dropper bottle for each color.
Fill your bottle halfway with Body Wash. Add your color and fragrance. If you gently swirl the bottle, the color and fragrance will start to incorporate with the Body Wash. Now you can add the rest of the Body Wash to bring the contents of the bottle up to the shoulder. Trim the stem of the pump to fit your chosen container and then cap and shake well. This will finish mixing the color and fragrance. If you want more color, feel free to add more until you get your desired color. The Body Wash will have a cloudy appearance at first, but if left alone for a few hours, the bubbles will rise to the top and leave your finished product transparent.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
