Make Your Own Fizzy Bath Powder

Make Your Own Fizzy Bath Powder

The next time that your Church or School needs a fund raiser why not try making your own bath products?

I've used this same recipe myself for several years now to make my bath bombs and fizzie bath powders. For a fraction of the price that you would pay in the store. Fizzie bath powder is much easier to make than bath bombs for the simple reason that you don't have form it into the ball shape and run the risk of having it crack during the drying process and thus ruin all of your hard work.

Some of my bath bombs

Things that you will need

* 2 Cups Baking Soda

* 1 Cup Citric Acid

Sources

you can usually get the best prices on citric acid, cocoa butter, and shea butter, and tin tie bags from ebay

And the olive oil, baking soda, and epsom salts can be purchased from wal-mart or your local grocery store.

Instructions

1.First melt your oils and butters together, a microwave works well for this.

2. Wearing latex gloves mix all of your dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Take care to not breath in the dust from dry ingredients as this can irritate your lungs and throat.

3.Add your fragrance and if desired a few drops of food color, mix well.

4.Add your melted oils and mix well with your hands making sure that all ingredients are completely mixed.

5. Let it sit for about 24 hours, this will allow the powder to dry.

Tips And Warnings

* Remember to wear gloves, because the dry ingredients can irritate your skin.

* Be sure to not breath in the dust from dry ingredients when mixing

* Pick your fragrances carefully, depending on the size of the fundraiser 3-5 different scents is plenty after all you don't want to spend your whole budget on fragrances.

*Fragrance suggestions: - A good rule of thumb is to choose one or two from each category.

How much fun! I love bath bombs, but I didn't know they were so easy to make. I think these would make great gifts...

The only hard part about making bath bombs is forming them into a ball shape. It takes a lot of practice,otherwise it's pretty easy.
