Have you been looking for a bath fizzies recipe? I love watching bath bombs fizz when I drop them in the tub. That’s half the fun of using them. The other half is the amazing scent and the way my skin feels after I use one.

Bath Fizzies Recipe

This bath fizzies recipe will make a bath bomb that fizzes when you drop it in the water. The fizz you see from some bath bombs is a reaction between the baking soda and the citric acid. Not all bath bombs are fizzy. But, this one is.

How do you make bath fizzies?

I have a printable copy of this bath fizzies recipe at the end of the article. Just scroll down to see all the steps to make this project. It’s not difficult at all. And, you only need a few simple ingredients and a bath bomb mold to get started.

What’s the purpose of bath bombs?

Like any other bath additive, a bath bomb adds scent and other ingredients to your bath. The baking soda, Epsom salts, and olive oil are all good for your skin. And, you should notice that your skin is softer and smoother when you get out of the tub.

Supplies:

These are the supplies you will need for this bath fizzies recipe.

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, combine your dry ingredients – Epsom salt, baking soda, cornstarch, and citric acid. Mix very well with a whisk, for about 2-3 minutes.
  2. In a small jar with lid, add the wet ingredients – olive oil, water, essential oil, and soap colorant. Place the lid on the jar and shake very well, until all of the wet ingredients are completely mixed together.
  3. Add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture very slowly. It is important to add just a few drops at a time, while continuously whisking the mixture. The mixture may start to fizz if you do not do this step slowly enough while mixing it in right away. This will cause the bath bombs to expand in the mold and not form right.
  4. After all the liquid has been poured and stirred in, mix very well until the color is consistent and you do not have large clumps.
  5. Fill each of the molds with the bath bomb mixture, firmly stuffing each side full.
  6. Secure both parts of the mold together, give a quick twist to get any excess mixture out, and let sit for about 24 hours. This gives the bath bomb plenty of time to form.
  7. To release, twist one half of the bath bomb mold. If it’s not releasing well, grab a spoon and lightly tap the half of the bath bomb mold. This should do the trick. Repeat with the other half to fully release the bath bomb.
