How To Make Bath Fizzies

12 step collage of steps to make bath fizzies at home
Here is how easy it is to make bath fizzies at home!

Step 1

In a large bowl, mix the citric acid, baking soda, and sugar. Using your hands, break apart any clumps so that the mixture is smooth.

Step 2

Add your essential oil to the mixture and mix well. The mixture may fizz a little but just keep mixing.

Step 3

Separate the mixture evenly into the plastic cups. I used 4 different colors so I had a separate cup for each color.

Step 4

Add food coloring you would like very slowly to each cup. Mixture will fizz a bit when the liquid is added. Just fold the color into the rest of the mixture with your hands. Mix it up so that it’s evenly dispersed but don’t worry about the color being completely uniform as it will blend well when you add the witch hazel in the next step.

Step 5

Fill your spray bottle with witch hazel (a natural astringent). Spray the mixture lightly and slowly while mixing together with your other hand. Keep spraying until you can pack the mixture together with your hands like damp sand. You don’t want to spray too much witch hazel at one time or the mixture will begin the fizzing process.

Step 6

Quickly pack mixture into the molds. The harder you pack the mixture into the mold, the better the bath fizzie will hold up. Let them dry for about an hour in the mold then tap the flower  shaped bath fizzies out and let them stand (several hours depending on the mold size) until they completely harden.

Note: I do want to mention that if you overpack your mold you may see the bath fizzies start to rise. Don’t panic, you can just continually push the mixture into the molds until they are hard and almost dry before removing.

These DIY gifts are perfect for mother's day or other holidays. These Flower fizzy bath bombs are purple, pink, yellow, and green in a white and blue wrapper.
Look how pretty these flower fizzy bath bombs are!
