DIY Thursday: Essential Oil Bath Fizzies
Essential Oil Bath Fizzies
There’s no better time for a nice hot bath now that cooler, wetter weather is upon us. If you’re anything like us, baths are the best way to shake that chill and hit reset on a bad day. It’s time to elevate your bath game with these DIY bath bombs. Fizzy, lovely, easy, and fun.
Oh, yeah. Got a big bath fan on your list this year? These little guys make fantastic gifts!
Here’s What You’ll Need:
1 cup baking soda
½ cup citric acid
½ cup Epsom Soak*
1 teaspoon witch hazel or water
20 drops Lavender essential oil
Mixing bowls – one big, one small
Whisk or long spoon
Optional: Gloves (latex, etc.)
*Note: Some DIY recipes call for the addition of moisturizing oils like Sweet Almond or Avocado. We chose to use our Everyone Epsom Soak since it’s made with Organic Olive Oil. Plus, the essential oils in our Soaks make these bath bombs smell amazing. Feel free to customize your recipe, using plain Epsom Salt instead of our Soaks. Keep in mind oil will leave a slick residue in your tub, so use sparingly (only about 1 teaspoon).
Here’s What To Do:
- Combine all your dry ingredients together. (Baking soda, citric acid, Epsom salt) and whisk thoroughly until well combined.
- In your small bowl, combine your water and essential oils.
- Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients a few drops at a time. Stir together until combined. (It may be easier to use your hands at this stage. Use gloves if you have sensitive skin.) Your mixture should feel like damp sand.
Note: Need a little color in your life? Add a few drops of natural food coloring to your mixture at this stage.
- Pack your mixture into molds. We used a cupcake tin, but you can form into balls using your hands or use any mold you like.
Hot Tip: metal molds work best.
- Your fizzies will start to expand as they dry. This is normal. Keep pressing down into the mold as they expand.
- Let them dry for 24 hours, or until they’re hardened. Once they’re dry, store them in an air tight container or wrap tightly in plastic wrap. We recommend using these fizzies within 2 weeks.
Enjoy your warm ‘n fuzzy fizzy bath. Ahh, that feels better.
