INGREDIENTS

1 cup citric acid
2 cups baking soda
1 cup cornstarch

LorAnn powdered food color
10 - 20 drops total of cosmetic grade fragrance oil or essential oil
1 tsp almond oil, sweet
Spray bottle filled with water
3D Round Ball Mold

Prepare molds: Beginning with one mold, use sturdy scissors to cut mold in half lengthwise. Cut between each circle leaving about a 1/4-inch border. You now have 6 individual half balls.

Note: Do not use plastic bowls or utensils.

DIRECTIONS

  1. Measure the citric acid into a large bowl and sift the baking soda and corn starch over the top. 
  2. Divide the mixture into different bowls (however many colors you want) Add food coloring (color of your choice), just a small amount is needed as powdered food coloring is very concentrated (The color will show up after the water has been added) to each separate bowl. 
  3. Sprinkle 20 drops total of fragrance oil or essential over each mixture (use all of one fragrance, or a combination) (We used lemon, grapefruit, and ylang ylang oils) and 1 teaspoon of almond oil and mix with a whisk until THOROUGHLY mixed. 
  4. Using your spray bottle, lightly spray mixture with the water until the mixture is packable. Do not over spray. Mix well with your hands; it should have the consistency of wet sand and clump together when squeezed. If too dry, spray once with water and repeat until mixture can be packed together. 
  5. Fill your mold by sprinkling the different colors in layers, pressing firmly to compact the mixture. Add some excess mixture on top of one half sphere mold and press another filled half sphere firmly to the other. Allow spheres to dry for 1 hour then remove from the molds. 
  6. Allow to air dry for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight. 

To use, drop bath fizzie into tub of warm water - enjoy!
