Make Your Own Bath Blasts!

May 24, 2016

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!

Steps:

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!

Bath Blast Dry Ingredients:

1 cup baking soda

1/2 cup citric acid (do not substitute ascorbic acid)

1/2 cup corn starch

Optional: 1/3 cup epsom salts or coarse sea salt

Wet Ingredients:

2 1/2 T. sweet almond oil

3/4 T. water

at least 1/4 teaspoon and up to 1 teaspoon of desired essential oils or fragrance oils

1/4 teaspoon borax as an emulsifier vegetable or other natural colorant (optional) - liquid food coloring works well.

Molds (use candy mold, soap molds or any small. plastic container)
