FAQ

Q. Can you give a profit margin example?
A. Okay, say you want to make a batch of 225 bath bombs. Ingredient cost (using suppliers listed in our guide book) would be about $85. That is about $0.38/each (buying in larger quantities can lower this cost). If you survey what bath bombs are priced in retail locations, you'll likely see a range of $3.00 to $8.00 per bath bomb. Typically Lush is in the $4.95 and higher end range. So at the 'lower' end of $3.00, the profit would be $2.62 per bath bomb, or $589.50 for 225 bath bombs. If you sold them, say at $4.95, the profit would be $4.57 per bath bomb, or $1,028.25 for 225. Now do you see why Lush is doing so well?
Now of course, there are other costs to consider; packaging, marketing, shipping, labor (this is where our B-3 Bomber is fantastic--it is a huge labor and time saver), and other costs associated with running a business.

Q. Why this 'kit'?
A. This Bath Bomb Business System is just that--all the key items you need to begin making and selling bath bombs. The Business Guide Book, the air powered B-3 Bomber machine, the air compressor (in the FULL USA kit only), the ingredients to make your first bath bombs (in the FULL USA kit only), the accessory tools you'll need--it is a complete bath bomb making and bath bomb business package. You don't need to piece-meal it together. It's all there. Ready to go.

Q. Is there a warranty?
A. Yes! See our warranty page here: warranty This warranty covers manufacturing defects. Improper use of the machine is not covered by any warranty.  The warranty covers the machine while owned by the original purchaser.

Q. Does the Business Guide include bath bomb recipes?
A. It sure does. There are different recipes included. However if you search online, you'll find many different and creative recipes to try. Our recipes will get you going. Be creative and try other recipes and invent your own!

Q. Are other molds available?
A. Currently, the 2.5" (63mm) diameter mold set comes with the machine (other sizes can be substituted upon request). This produces a bath bomb that weighs 5.8 oz or 175 grams. We offer many other mold sizes and shapes and will continue to offer a greater range of sizes/shapes/designs. See our Shop page for our current offerings. Don't see what you are looking for, email us with a description of what you want and we'll see if we can make it for you.  Please note that our sphere molds can also make 1/2 sphere shapes.  Likewise our cupcake mold can also make a large tablet/hockey puck type shape.

Q. I'm not mechanically inclined, can I use this machine?
A. Yes. It is designed to be simple, consistent and reliable. It comes fully pre-assembled! To get it ready to use you do just two things. First connect the air hose from the compressor to the fitting on the molding machine. Second, plug in the compressor to an electrical outlet and turn on the compressor. You are now ready to start molding your ingredients into fresh new bath bombs!

Q. How can you help me with sales--I don't know if I'm cut out to be a 'sales person'--what do I do?
A. You, or someone you know, has to sell the awesome bath bombs you make in order to make money. No sales = no profit. But there is hope! We first suggest you read through the Marketing, Promotion, and Sales sections of the Bath Bomb Business Guide to get some great ideas to try. Pick one or two of the tips in there that sound doable to you and try those first. With time your confidence will build and once you see the money coming in, you'll reallize that it pays to talk about your products with others.

Q. Can I do this myself?
A. Absolutely! One person can do this. Production is easier and faster with two however.  Many of our customers have grown their businesses and now have several of our machines operated by several employees!  Not all our our customers make bath bombs with these machines either.  Some make soap balls, some make fish bait (!) and there are probably other creative things being produced with the B-3 bomber!

Q. If I have someone who can help me, will that be beneficial?
A. Sure it will. With our work-flow plans (and work-flow plans are included in the Business Guide for 1, 2, or 3 people) you can quickly assign different tasks to different people. The main difference is that with a 2nd or 3rd person, one person can keep the molding machine humming along constantly which increases the production rate. With two people working, production rates of 450 bath bombs per hour are possible.  In this, the machine will not be the limiting factor--keeping a steady flow of fresh bath bomb mix going to the machine operator will be the key.

Q. How strong is that piston?
A. The piston pushes down with 300 lbs of force to compress the ingredients into a bath bomb.

Q. Is it safe?
A. The B-3 Bomber uses a special safety system that requires both hands to push two seperate low-effort buttons simultaneously in order to use the machine. The buttons are on either end of the top rail of the machine and are pressed toward the center. This insures that one's hands are not in the way of the moving piston.  Only one person should operate/use/adjust the machine at a time.  Any adjustments made to the machine should be done with the air compressor line disconnected from the B-3 so the B-3's energy source, the compressed air, is isolated from the machine.

Q. I have a teenage/college age/adult child or relative that is having a hard time deciding 'what to do' with their lives career-wise. Could they do this?
A. Absolutely! Today's employment environment is a challenging one. Many young people don't fully know what they want to do and find typical jobs boring and with not enough room to grow in income.  With this they lack compelling reasons to excel. Welcome to the reality of pay-per-hour. This business opportunity does not pay an hourly rate. It pays for effort, creativity, and selling an enjoyable and relaxing product. If your son or daughter isn't too excited about their $10/hour job, you might consider involving them in your efforts starting a business--or have them start one of their own. Being given the 'keys' that could lead them to make real money for themselves could be life changing.

Q. Aren't air compressors noisy?
A. Yes, they do make some noise. We often will set an air compressor outside and run the hose in through a doorway or partially open window. It depends on your space. We have even set an air compressor in the back of an SUV while working inside a building--you can barely hear it. Ultimately though, you'll need a space where some sound is okay. So if you're in an appartment and have close neighbers, another location would be a good choice. There are some newer air compressors available from California Air Tools that are much quieter.  Although we have not yet tested these.
