Want to make your bathing experience more enjoyable? Check out these fizzy heart bombs! I have selected only those good ingredients, that will enhance your health, help you detoxify (Epsom salt) and relax (pure lavender and rosemary essential oils and rose water). Rather than using colourants, I used organic ground turmeric, which gives them lovely creamy yellow colour.
You will only need to add one heart to your bath tub once you are already in! Watch those fizzy hearts pop, it is fun! Enjoy the healing properties of essential oils!
- 1 cup aluminium free baking soda
- 1/2 cup citric acid
- 1/2 cup Epsom salt (finely ground in a blender)
- 1/2 cup corn starch (optional)
- 1 tspn lavender buds
- 1 tspn turmeric powder
- 2 tspn apricot kernel oil (or almond, or olive, or jojoba, or sesame)
- 60 drops of selected pure essential oils (30 lavender+ 30 rosemary)
- 1 tspn rose water placed in a spray bottle
Combine all dry ingredients including lavender buds and turmeric. Add oils and stir well until all ingredients nicely distributed throughout the mix.
Slowly spritz the rose water over the dry ingredients, while constantly stirring. The mix will start fizzing slightly in places.
Only when all the ingredients are moist enough to clump together, firmly press into the cavities of moulds (I used muffin silicone moulds). You can use gloves as turmeric tends to be colouring your fingers.
Allow to dry for about 3-4 hours in a cool place.
Remove from moulds, place in air tight container to stop them from being activated by humidity and use within 4 months.
