How To Make Bath Bombs & Fizzies

  • 2 cups baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups citric acid
  • 2oz oil of choice (I generally use either Almond or Evening Primrose)
  • 1oz fragrance of choice (either EO or FO, doesn’t matter which, really)
  • aprx 1.5oz water or witch hazel in a spray bottle set to Mist

Mix your dry ingredients thoroughly in a large bowl with plenty of extra room. Add your scenting oil (EO or FO) and begin to stir together with a spoon or spatula. (Personally,I just used my hand with a latex glove on – it seems to mix faster that way, and it’s easier to judge when the texture is correct.)

When your EO/FO is completely mixed in and you can’t “see” it any longer (there’s no obvious Wet area as opposed to Dry) start adding your oil about a half ounce at a time and stirring while you do so. Mixture should be about the consistency of wet sand and stick together well. If it’s still a bit to dry to stick together well when you squeeze it in your hand, hold the spray bottle several inches (no less than 6 or 8) above the bowl and give 1 or 2 mist sprays with the witch hazel.

There WILL be a bit of fizzing right at the spot where the majority of it hits, but it should be minimal and will end quickly as you stir the mixture again to incorporate that moisture.

This mixture works well for me every time, either using a largish scoop (a small ice cream scoop) or packing it into guest bar sized molds.

Don't know where to start? (cold process basics)

If you're new to soapmaking, I highly recommend "Natural Soapmaking" by Jan Berry (from TheNerdyFarmWife.com). It's perfect for beginners. I wish I'd read it before my first batch! She manages to be thorough and yet keep it simple and to the point.

I specially like her suggestions on natural colorings and how to work with botanicals and infusions. For only $9.99, you'll learn:

  • how to color soaps naturally with botanicals and clays
  • all about adding beneficial herbs and flowers to your soaps
  • how to use a lye calculator (it's not as hard as it seems, promise!)

For those who feel they need some extra hand-holding, her complete package also includes:

  • » All-Natural Milk Soaps Companion Guide
