Fizzy Bath Balls


  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup citric acid powder
  • 1/2 cup Epsom salts
  • 3/4 tablespoon liquid glycerin
  • 3/4 teaspoons essential oil
  • Food coloring
  • Dried lavender
  • Ivy leaves
  • Twine
  • Non-stick spray
  • Sieve
  • Measuring spoons
  • Large bowl & small bowls
  • Wax paper
  • Cookie sheet


  1. In large bowl sift together dry ingredients.

  2. In small bowl mix together the essential oil, 6 drops of food coloring, and glycerin.

  3. Pour the oil mixture (1/2 teaspoon at a time) into the dry ingredients (1/2 cup at a time) and mix quickly before it starts to fizz.

  4. Spray non-stick spray into moulds to prevent sticking. Fill the moulds with the mixture, packing it in firmly to create a smooth ball shape. Let the mixture harden in the molds for 24 hours, then remove.

  5. Wrap the leaf around the ball and secure with twine.
