Confetti Bath Fizzies

I wanted to wake up on Saturday morning { sun shining, birds chirping, His Radio playing } & work on a little DIY project in my bright & sunny kitchen. After searching for a DIY project on Pinterest, I found this bath fizzy recipe from The Makeup Dummy. I used her recipe as a base & made my own concoction. I loved that she incorporated Epsom Salt – it looked like c o n f e t t i. Click here for her recipe { she even posted a printable version }.

Whimsical’s Ingredients { I basically doubled The Makeup Dummy‘s }

1/4 c. Epsom Salt

1 c. baking soda

1/2 c. cornstarch

1/2 c. citric acid { I used 1/4 c. Cream of Tartar }

2 tbsp coconut oil

1/4 c. water & 2 tbsp witch hazel mixed in a spray bottle

food coloring

rose water { essential oils }

bath molds { jello molds will work just fine }

They turned out beautifully. Next time, I will use essential oils & add one more tablespoon of coconut oil. Many thanks to the The Makeup Dummy for her fabulous recipe. I can’t wait to follow more of her wonderful DIYs.

All the goodness in adding pretty fizzies to your bath water,
