  • Large mixing bowl
  • 2 medium size mixing bowls
  • 2 cups of Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda)
  • 1 cup of Citric Acid
  • 1 tablespoon of Cream of Tartar
  • Red Bath Fizzie Colorant
  • Blue Bath Fizzie Colorant
  • Spray bottle with Witch Hazel
  • 5mL of Lavender Essential Oil
  • Silicone whisk
  • Plastic/Latex gloves
  • 3 Bath Fizzie Stainless Steel Molds
  • 1 ounce of Coconut Oil (Fractionated)

1. Measure out sodium bicarbonate and take out all clumps with fingers/whisk in a large bowl. The mixture should be nice and smooth!
2. Add coconut oil, essential oil, and cream of tartar into the mix. Work in all the liquids using fingers and whisk.
3. Check texture by squeezing mixture in hands. If it sticks together naturally, perfect. If it crumbles, spray with witch hazel to create a lightly wet-sand consistency.
4. Add citric acid. Work into mixture so there is a full coating.
5. Separate into three equal parts, color one part red, one part blue, leave one part.
6. Pack colors into two shells however you choose. Don’t pack too tightly, but be sure to slightly overfill each side.
7. Squeeze both parts together, and wipe the sides to remove any excess.
7. Separate by gently tapping all sides with a spoon and gently twisting.
8. Let harden for about 24 – 48 hours, enjoy!
