Birthday Favorite: Bubble Baths.

I don't get the opportunity for alone time very often. When I do get a rare quiet moment alone, I often spend them taking bubble baths. I especially love them with Bath Fizzies. Have you ever used them? It's like bathing in soda; yummy smelling and bubbly. Combine this with a good book, and I'm in almost-a-spa heaven.

I love finding ways to combine my favorite things, so making bath fizzies not only lets me bathe in luxury, it also lets me get in a little craft time. They are simple to make. Like...SUPER simple. And fun. And they make your house smell divine.
01. Gather your supplies. I love using the oil from DoTerra. It smells fantastic. (I didn't notice my cute baby smiling at me in the background until I loaded the picture on the computer. I didn't have the heart to crop him out.)
03. Mix all the dry ingredients.
04. Divide into 1/2 cup portions.
05. Add water and 6-8 drops of food coloring to a small spritzer. Spray the dry ingredients and stir after every spray. (You don't want the dry ingredients to start fizzing.)
06. Once the mixture remains formed when you squeeze it between your fingers, stop spritzing.
07. Add 8-9 drops of your favorite essential oil to each 1/2 cup portion. (My yellow fizzies are lemon, blue fizzies are lavender and green fizzies are peppermint.)
08.  Press firmly into mini muffin tins.
09. Let sit for 2 hours. Gently remove and store in a dry location until ready for bathing. Each bath fizzie is good for one bath.

These would make a fantastic Christmas gift for all your girlfriends! I also love giving pink or blue ones to new mommies who are usually in desperate need for a good, calming soak.

*This recipe was adapted from Martha, who taught me to make it on her show many years ago. I've recently rediscovered the recipe in her Craft Encyclopedia, which, may I add, is AMAZING.

  7. any suggestions where you could purchase Citric Acid? And no worries about using your muffin tin again for baking (after a good cleaning of course)?

  9. @Barbie: You can get citric acid at any store that sells soap supplies or at a health food store. (It is much cheaper at the health food stores.) I have also heard you can buy it very cheaply through a beer-making store. I bought mine at Sunflower Market.

    Citric Acid, although scary sounding, is a natural product found in many foods. It is perfectly safe to use the muffin tins again.
