I just realized today that next Wednesday is June!
It was such a busy weekend that I didn’t have a minute to take a break and just relax. I got a facial in class which was nice, but in all honesty we were chit-chatting and having fun so it wasn’t the same as if I was in a five-star spa. It’s a little better;)
I wanted to share what we made in class as a cute little activity. Homemade “Bath Fizzies”(same as a bath bomb). I always see them in stores and they retail for $5-10, but this recipe will make six fizzies for less than $3.
- 2 cups Baking soda
- 1 cup Citric Acid(can be found in health food store and most grocery stores)
- 1/4 Corn Starch
- 3 Tbsp of Jojoba Oil
- 2 Tbsp of water
- Rubbing alcohol in spray bottle
- Color of choice
- Fragrance of choice
Mix dry ingredients together in large mixing bowl. If you are adding color, add it after dry ingredients are mixed. Add fragrance by drizzling in different locations of mixture and not pouring in one spot. With a fork, mix well by breaking up fragrance lumps. Once batch is mixed spray rubbing alcohol, with gloved hands toss while being sprayed. Once mixture is moist enough to stick together when pressed you can add to your mold. Fill your mold with mixture and wait about 15 minutes before removing. Allow 1 hour before packaging.
*You can add dried petals, glitter, flower buds, herbs etc to your fizzies, but when you do make sure to add before spraying with alcohol.
The best part about these are the price! You could easily make these and give them as inexpensive gifts or keep for yourself! The shelf life is only about two months so it gives you an excuse to go ahead and get your relaxation on!
