There is something incredibly relaxing about a warm bath, and these homemade salt bath fizzies take the relaxation up a notch!
I loved bath fizzies when I was younger, but have avoided them lately because store bought versions tend to contain artificial ingredients like fragrances and dyes.
These homemade bath fizzies are a great solution! Made from nourishing sea salt or epsom salts, alkalizing baking soda and fizzing citric acid with a nourishing oil and vanilla base.
These can be packaged for a great gift or made countless ways for relaxing baths anytime! 🙂
Bath Fizzies Ingredients
- 1 cup Baking Soda
- 1/2 cup Citric Acid
- 1/2 cupSea Salt or Epsom Salt
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 2 teaspoons witch hazel (or water)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or more water)
- Essential oils or powdered dried herbs (ginger is great)
What to Do:
- Combine baking soda, salt and citric acid and mix well until combined.
- In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, witch hazel and vanilla extract and stir well. Add essential oils if using.
- Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients and very quickly mix well with hands (wear gloves if you have sensitive skin). Add powdered dried herbs if using.
- Mixture should hold together when squeezed without crumbling. You may need to add slightly more witch hazel if it hasn’t achieved this consistency yet.
- Quickly push mixture into silicon molds, greased muffin tins or any other greased container. Press in firmly and leave at least 24 hours (48 is better) or until hardened. It will expand some and this is normal. You can push it down into the mold several times while it is drying to keep it from expanding to much.
- When dry, remove and store in air tight container. Use within 2 weeks.
