Homemade bath fizzies

Makes 1 dozen (Use two per bath)


  • 3/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup citric acid (can be found in the canning section of any grocery store or online)
  • 6 drops of food coloring
  • 10 to 15 drops of an essential oil of your choice


  • Small spray bottle
  • Silicone baking or candy mold (ice cube trays also work)
  • Sieve (like a flour sifter used for baking)
  • Cute packaging (jars, festive boxes, cute bags with ribbon, etc.)

Add some bubbly to your bath



Stir together citric acid, baking soda and cornstarch in a glass bowl.


Pass mixture through a fine sieve or a flour sifter.

Fill spray bottle with water, and add food coloring.


Spritz mixture lightly (one to three sprays at a time) and stir. As you are slowly adding water, the mixture will also take on the coloring. This process will take time, so be patient and refrain from over-spraying. If the mixture starts to fizz, it is getting too wet.

Add some bubbly to your bath


Add drops of oil. As soon as the mixture is packable in your hand, it is ready for the mold. It will look and feel fairly dry at this point. If your mixture fizzes out of the mold, you know the mixture got too wet and you will need to begin the spritzing process again.


Spoon into mold, packing firmly.


Let dry at room temperature for two hours.


Pop out of mold gently.


Transfer to cute packaging of your choice!

If you want to have multiple scents and colors, simply divide the mixture into separate containers and spray with the colors you want.
