- 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
- Non-stick spray
- Measuring spoons
- Large bowl & small bowls
- Wax paper
- Cookie sheet
In large bowl sift together dry ingredients.
In small bowl mix together the essential oil, 6 drops of food coloring, and glycerin.
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.
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.
Wrap the leaf around the ball and secure with twine.
