Make Your Own Fizzy Bath Bombs

What you need:

2 tablespoons citric acid 
2 tablespoons cornstarch 
1/4 cup baking soda 
1/4 tsp essential oil or fragrance oil 
3-6 drops food color 
3 tablespoons vegetable oil 
2 bowls 
waxed paper

(for larger amounts of fizzy bath bombs, expand the mixture, using the proportions above)

> First, mix all dry ingredients: citric acid, baking soda and cornstarch, in the bowl.

> Mix the vegetable oil, fragrance or essential oils and coloring together in a separate bowl or cup,

> Slowly mix the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients.

> Make small (1 inch) balls of the mixture and place them on waxed paper to dry. It takes 24- 48 hours for fizzy bath balls to dry completely. They should be completely dry before storage.

> Store bath balls in a tightly sealed container, away from moisture.

> Try one in the bath!! They make great gifts too!. 

Any vegetable oil is good to use in your fizzy bath bombs (jojoba, coconut oil, avocado oil, walnut oil, apricot kernal oil, sweet almond oil etc.) Add Mixed Tocopherols to your oil mixture as a preservative.
