Save some money on pricey “bath bombs” or “bath-fizzies” by doing it yourself and making your own! I looked around online, played around with different recipes, made a few batches, and came up with my own little recipe for funky fizzies. Make your own “Moon Rocks” and “Alien Ice” bath bombs for a stellar spa night in! You’ll be emerging from the tub with soft, shimmering skin that smells out of this world.
You will need:
· 2 cups baking soda
· 1 cup citric acid
· Blue coloring for “Moon Rocks”
· A body spray or perfume of your choice
· 2 tsp. olive oil
What to do: Heat your oven to 225 degrees Fahrenheit. Combine baking soda and citric acid and mix it really thoroughly with a whisk (this will ensure a non-grainy bath bomb), then add a couple drops of coloring (I used regular food coloring, but be sure to only add a couple drops because too much might stain your tub, and don’t worry if you think the color looks too faint it’s okay – the color shows up once you add the body spray), mix it up and then add the olive oil and mix again. Once you’ve added the oil start spraying the mixture with your body spray or perfume until it begins to turn into a solid moldable consistency. Make sure you don’t use too much spray, only spray it enough for it to mold together. As soon as you reach this consistency, firmly pack the mixture into the square mold and pop it out onto a baking tray. Bake at 225 degrees for about 45 minutes to an hour. Once they’ve hardened to the point where they can be picked up remove them from the oven and let them cool. Once cooled, dust the fizzy ice blocks with purple shimmer eye shadow (or whatever shimmery color you like) and then sprinkle with glitter.
You will need:
• 2 cups baking soda
• 1 cup citric acid
• Green coloring for “Moon Rocks”
• A body spray or perfume of your choice
• 2 tsp. olive oil
• Purple shimmer eye shadow pigment
• Square molds *I used the square lid that goes to the Victoria’s Secret “Pink” body sprays, but alternately I think it would be adorable to mold them form actual ice trays and can be used 3 at a time rather than one big block at a time.
What to do: Follow the same process for the alien ice recipe except instead of putting them in molds, use your hands and mold them into mounds and then press them onto the baking sheet to create flat bottoms. Shapes obviously don’t need to be uniform, you can make small pebbles too! Once they’ve been baked and cooled, dust them with some silver glitter and they’re ready for take-off.
