Recipe makes 18-20 bath fizzies when using a standard cupcake liner sized mold.
- 4 cups of baking soda (aluminum free)
- 2 cups of citric acid
- 8 teaspoons of cocoa butter
- 3 teaspoons of water
- organic essential oil from Veriditas Botanicals
- dried herbs for decoration
- silicon molds (I used silicon cupcake liners, but you could use any shape you like. There are some beautiful rose-shaped molds, among many other options.)
- natural food coloring (optional)
- In a double boiler over medium heat, melt your cocoa butter. Once it is melted, remove from heat and add in the water and your choice of skin-safe, bath-safe essential oils. I used Lavender and Rose Otto for these floral bath fizzies.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine your baking soda and citric acid and stir or whisk until they are thoroughly mixed..
- Add your wet ingredients to your dry ingredients (sometimes it will fizz a little when you pour it in - don't worry).
- Mix well until everything is fully combined. (Optional: add in natural food coloring.)
- Add a little bit of dried herb to the bottom of each mold (if desired).
- Scoop your mixture into your molds and let set for 1-2 hours.
- Remove your fizzies from the molds and let them air dry overnight on a kitchen towel.
- Wrap them up to give as gifts or place them in a pretty jar on your bathroom counter. Enjoy by adding one fizzy to the tub when you're preparing your next warm bath!
