Fizzy Bath Salts Recipe Ingredients
Baking soda adds silky detoxifying benefits whilst making the water a bit more on the alkaline side.
Citric acid is the secret ingredient that adds all the fizzy power of a bath bomb.
Juniper trees have a special place in my heart and also dot the landscape I call home! Their lovely berries are not only full of vitamin C and antibacterial compounds, but also make a lovely aid for the lymphatic system, making them a great choice for a healing bath soak.
Ah, rose -- heart-healing, soothing and fragrant to boot.
Aloe Vera Powder
Aloe vera is filled with skin healing powers, anti-aging benefits and wonderful moisturizing properties.
I'm quite fond of the scent of grapefruit peel alongside rosemary and rose. Bonus: it has gentle exfoliating properties.
Using Fizzy Bath Salts
Storing and Enjoying
- Add 1/4 to 1 cupful to the warm running water in a bath. Soak and enjoy!
- Store layered in jars in your bathroom not only for a pleasing aesthetic effect, but for future enjoyable use.
- Store in small jars for gifting purposes.
Top Tips for the DIY Fizzy Bath Salts Experience
It's completely optional, but I like to lightly crush the juniper berries using a mortar and pestle before adding to the bath salts mixture to help release its powerful plant compounds. This can also be done with the grapefruit peel, if desired.
If you're worried about what clean-up might look like after using such plant-powered ingredients, let me tell you, it is easier than you can imagine! The majority of the ingredients dissolve into silky, fizzy bliss while the rose buds, juniper berries and grapefruit peel gently float and rehydrate as you soak. These fragrant bits of plant material can be easily scooped up by your hands or a mesh colander before exiting the bath. I then like to add them to my compost pile or save for the next bath!
This is a very versatile and flexible bath soak recipe. If you are allergic to or not fond of any of the ingredients, you can easily omit or substitute to your tastes. Just keep in mind, the citric acid is what makes these bath salts -fizzy- !
