Home Made Bath Fizzies (Free Printable)

For my birthday a couple weeks ago, one dear friend gave me a Martha Stewart Holiday Crafts book. I was DELIGHTED. This is the first craft that I have tried (and spruced up a little bit)- and its just in time for Valentine’s day. In the book, this bath fizzie recipe was listed under Mother’s Day- but I think its just the thing to treat yourself, or to include in a romantic Valentine’s Day basket for your significant other. The aroma they emit is darling, and even without a bath, setting one on the shower floor is enough to fill the room with yumminess. Add in this special little poem I wrote to go with, and its a sure to wow unique gift!

What You Will Need:

  • The Recipe I followed is here at Martha Stewart.
  • 1/2 cup citric acid (This was really tricky to find. After calling all sorts of canning and health food stores in my area, I had to buy it online.)
  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 3/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup organic cane sugar
  • Food coloring
  • 10 to 15 drops essential oil(s) (I used a scented oil for soap and lotion making that smells like Angel Food Cake. Its amazing.)
  • Edible Glitter and Confetti (The edible part is essential. Otherwise it won’t dissolve and you’ll be left with glitter in your bathtub)
  • Special equipment: 2-ounce travel-size spray bottle, plastic pipette, silicone ice-cube tray, storage jars

How it’s Made:

  1. Stir together citric acid, baking soda, and cornstarch in a glass measuring cup.
  2. Pass mixture through a fine sieve or a flour sifter into a mixing bowl. Stir in sugar.
  3. Fill spray bottle with water, and add food coloring. Spritz mixture lightly (it should become damp but not fizzy) until you can pack mixture with your hands. I found that pressing a spoon full against the side of the bowl until it stayed firmly was a good determination.
  4. Using pipette, add oil, 1 drop at a time, until strength of scent is to your liking.  Add in your desired amount of glitter and confetti. I found that this addition made the fizzie seem more luxurious, and special. The edible ingredients dissolve in water.
  5. Using a metal spoon or your hands, mix ingredients until color is even throughout (mixture will begin to dry out; when this happens, spritz until packable again).
  6. Spoon into ice-cube tray, pressing firmly. Let dry at room temperature overnight. I didn’t have a silicone ice cube tray, so I used a square silicone brownie tray. Also, I found this toy sand rake laying around, and it was the perfect shape to help me really press the mixture into the squares. Also, it left this pretty wood-grain texture behind.
  7. Print and cut out either the poem, or the tag, or the fizzie label I made to go with. Use ribbon to attach it, or glue it right to the jar! Tada! A special and unique gift.
