I recently have seen a lot of recipes for bath fizzies and got so excited because I remember using these when I was little! I wanted to see how my children would react the first time they saw them, and was a little afraid they would love them so much they would want to use all of them (which they did)!
The thing I loved most about this recipe was how you could use essential oils! How perfect is that! Not only do you get amazing bath fizzies, but you get to make them therapeutic too! I decided that I wanted a batch for when I need to relax. My children needed a batch for when they needed to CALM down. And my family needed a batch for when we were sick.
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1/2 cup citric acid
- 1/2 cup cornstarch
- 1/4 oats
Mix dry ingredients together until completely combined and smooth. (I ground up oats in my blender and added about 1/4 cup of that too. It protects the skin from irritants and helps soothe skin that’s itchy or irritated.)
- 2 1/2 Tbsp of Almond Carrier Oil (softens and re-conditions the skin)
- 3/4 tbsp of purified water
- 1/2 – 1 tsp of Essential Oil
- 1/4 tsp of Meadowfoam Carrier Oil (preserves the oils)
- 1/2 tsp of Borax (an emulsifier)
- witch hazel in a spray bottle (you will have to put it in a spray bottle)
- natural colorant if desired (I left mine white)
Drizzle slowly onto the dry ingredients and blend thoroughly.
Mix with your hands until all of the ingredients are combined.
Lightly spray the mixture 2-3 times with witch hazel.
Pack TIGHTLY into molds. I ordered these fun ones off of Amazon.com, but you could use anything really. Even a small (1/4 cup) measuring cup.
Let the bath fizzies dry and harden overnight before you pick them up.
You did all this hard (OK maybe not that hard) work, now it is time to take a fizzie and go relax in the bath!
My children are loving the bath fizzies! They usually fight over who gets to put it in the bath. The are always wanting more than one! The best part about these fizzies though is how soft my children’s skin is becoming. My almost 18 month old usually has really bumpy skin, maybe eczema. Since we have been using these bath fizzies, yes just these past few days, his skin has become sooooo soft! I love rubbing his little arms when he comes out of the bath!
I am so excited that not only are these fun and my kids love them, but they are making their skin so much healthier! Thank you bath fizzies!
