Bath Bomb Fizzlers

January 18, 2015

I wanted to make a fun thing for my son when he took a bath which wasn’t filled with dyes and other harsh ingredients.  So I found a recipe for fizzy bath bombs!  I tried it out and it was a HIT!  Needless to say, now I’m experimenting making more with different essential oils too.  Check it out.


1 cup citric acid (if necessary, replace with 1/2 cup cream of tartar)

1 cup baking soda

1/2 cup cornstarch ( can be replaced with arrowroot powder)

1/2 cup oil (almond, olive, doTerra, etc.) (Personally I chose Olive oil because of its amazing properties for the skin)

8-10 drops favorite Essential Oil(s)

Silicone mold, saran wrap or mini cupcake tins

(About molds – I’ve tried a fish shaped one but due to the fine details it didn’t stay together at all once dried, no matter what.  So stick with simple, curvy molds for the best turn out!  Muffin tins work perfectly too.  In the end, shaped mold or just a ball, the ingredients turn out great in the bath and such a refreshing feeling!  My kiddo loves them too, great entertainment/science experiment for them.)









In a bowl, mix citric acid, baking soda, cornstarch and chosen oil together.

Add drops of essential oils of choice.

Mix well until soft dough formed – use hand and or spoon.  Consistence should be of damp sand.

Also can add dried herbs, coloring, flower pedals, etc. here.

If mixture is too wet, try adding more baking soda and corn starch until consistency is right.

Place mixture into molds.  Let sit for 24+ hours before removing from mold.

You’ll know when their ready to use when COMPLETELY dry.

Just drop into bath water and soak away!
