How about a little spring treat for your body? Try these fizzy bath bombs when you need to relax – or even in a footbath. Simple and decadent – my favorite way.
Fizzy Spring Bath Cubes
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup Epsom salts
1/2 cup citric acid
1/2 cup filtered water
5 drops ylang-ylang essential oil
5 drops frankincense essential oil
Combine all of the ingredients in a glass mixing bowl. Pack the mixture into clean ice cube trays and let dry. (You can also form into balls, but the ice cube tray is easier.) Use 2-3 cubes for a bath and store the remainder in a glass jar. Doubles easily – and makes a great gift!
You can find Epsom salts in the Health and Beauty section of any grocery store or pharmacy. Citric acid is available at local co-op groceries in the bulk tea and spices aisle. My favorite source for essential oils is Veriditas Botanicals, a locally-owned (and woman-owned!) company based in Bloomington, Minnesota. You can find them at metro area co-ops.
