Bath Fizz Bombs or Bath Fizzies spin and whirl around in your bathtub erupting into a mass fragrant fizzing, gently scenting the water with natural oils. The particular recipe uses real buttermilk that is used to gently soften and cleanse the skin. Avocado oil is added for its healing and regenerative properties, which is helpful to those suffering with dry skin or eczema making this a very moisturizing bath fizz recipe.
* Citric acid
* Baking soda
* Buttermilk powder
* Avocado oil
* Lettuce fragrance oil
* Green food coloring
* Yellow food coloring
* Witch hazel
* Meat Baller
* Mixing bowl
* Measuring cup
STEP 1: Mix 1 cup of citric acid, 1 cup of baking soda, and 1 cup of buttermilk powder is a stainless bowl. Make sure you blend these ingredients extremely well. If you don’t, your bath fizz bomb will come out very grainy.
STEP 2: Add 14 drops of green food coloring and 6 drops of yellow food coloring and mix.
STEP 3: Add 1/4 tsp. of avocado oil and 1/2 tsp. of lettuce fragrance oil, and mix well.
STEP 4: Spray the witch hazel (with a spray bottle) onto your batch while stirring with the other hand. Spray about four times while stirring. When your batch starts to stick together, you need to start putting it into the mold. Time is crucial here. If you wait too long, the mixture will get hard. If you spray too much, the mixture will be too wet and start to fizz on you. It’s not a pretty site. Trust me!
STEP 5: Use your meat baller to scoop a portion from your batch. There are holes on the top and bottom part of the baller (the round part). While the meat baller is closed, push the mixture in with your fingers to help make your bath fizz bombs compact. Also, the harder you pack the bath fizz bombs, the heavier and more durable the bombs will get.
STEP 6: Hold the meat baller closed for just a few minutes.
STEP 7: Open the meat baller and your circular bath fizz bomb should pop out.
STEP 8: Place it on wax paper to air dry, and repeat steps 5 through 8 until the entire batch has been used.
* Shelf life of three to six months.
