Make Your Own Bath Blasts!
Here's a hunka bubbling bath bliss for ya, a virtual chunk of Jacuzzi! Learn how to make this naturally-scented bath fizzy full of soothing oils and softening salts just for you to enjoy!
Combine dry ingredients. Mix all the wet ingredients together and SLOWLY add to dry mixture. Be careful not to add the wet ingredients too quickly, otherwise the mix will start fizzing. Once this happens, the mixture is ruined. The mixture should be toward the dry end. It should look like lightly damp sand. Firmly press mixture into the mold. Allow to set for 30 seconds. Unmold. You may have to tap the mold slightly for it to pop out. Allow to dry 24 hours prior to using. Then drop one in the tub- and relax!
