Compliments of Marian Parsons
Merry Christmas Friends!
Give the gift of a luxurious home spa day with these homemade lavender bath fizzies. Package the sweet-scented bath bombs in a vintage glass jar with a custom tag for a pretty presentation sure to make the gift even more special. Homemade Lavender Bath Fizzies
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup corn starch
1 cup citric acid
lavender essential oil
water in a spray bottle
food coloring (optional)
lavender buds (optional)
Yield: approximately 15 1" cubed bath fizzies
Mix Dry Ingredients
Stir first three ingredients together in a large bowl with a whisk until thoroughly mixed.
Moisten Mixture With Water
Spray dry mixture with water in a spritzer or spray bottle (Image 1). Mix ingredients with one hand as water is sprayed with the other. Add water slowly, to avoid adding too much. Enough water has been added when mixture will keep its shape when squeezed (Image 2). Tip: An old hairspray bottle works great.
Add food coloring (4 drops blue/8 drops red) to lend a pale lavender hue (Image 1), desired amount of essential lavender oil and approximately 2-3 tablespoons dried lavender buds (Image 2). Knead ingredients until coloring and oil are distributed evenly.
Press Mixture Into Mold
Press mixture into silicone mold until each section is tightly packed (Image 1). Press additional dried lavender buds into top of fizzies, so they are visible when cubes are removed from tray (Image 2). Allow fizzies to harden for a couple of hours, then gently unmold (Image 3). Store in an airtight container till you're ready to package them for gift presentation (Image 4).
