Bath Fizzies are a relaxing way to unwind at any time of the day. Miss M loves her baths, and when Briana shared that she had made Bath Fizzies, and they were too easy, I knew I had found an excellent way to spend quality time with Miss M and pamper her.
Long, hot baths are our luxury at our house. We find so many benefits from soaking in a hot bath, says Town and Country Magazine. It elevates our mood, soothes our sore muscles, and helps us sleep.
Bath Fizzies Recipe Materials
- 1/2 cup citric acid
- 1 cup baking soda
- 3/4 cup cornstarch
- 1/4 cup organic cane sugar
- About 6 drops food coloring
- 10 to 15 drops essential oil(s)
Other Supplies Needed:
- 2-ounce travel-size spray bottle
- plastic pipette
- silicone ice-cube tray
- storage jars
Bath Fizzies Recipe Directions
- Stir together citric acid, baking soda, and cornstarch in a glass measuring cup.
- Pass the mixture through a fine sieve or a flour sifter into a mixing bowl. Stir in sugar.
- Fill a spray bottle with water, and add food coloring. Spritz the mixture lightly (it should become damp but not fizzy) until you can pack the mixture with your hands.
- Using a pipette, add oil, one drop at a time, until the strength of the scent is to your liking. Using a metal spoon or your hands, mix ingredients until the color is even throughout (the mixture will begin to dry out; when this happens, spritz until packable again).
- Spoon into an ice-cube tray, pressing firmly. Let dry at room temperature overnight. Pop out of the tray gently. Transfer to jars.
