It is easy to make bath fizzies and these moisturize and soothe dry skin as well as leave it soft and nourished after you get out of the tub.
You can make bath fizzies in about 10-15 minutes but you should let them dry out overnight before you use them.

Instructions For How To Make Bath Fizzies:
Grab all your materials and head to the kitchen counter to make bath fizzies. This recipe makes 5-6 homemade bath fizzies.
Start with your dry ingredients. In your mixing bowl, add 8 oz of baking soda, 4 oz of epsom salt, 4 oz of corn starch and 4 oz of citric acid. Gently mix those together.
Feel free to use a combination of essential oils that are fragrant and good for the skin like lavender and orange or lavender and lime. I am a Young Living distributor so if you want to order them though me, you can do so here.
Once those are mixed well, add the liquid to your dry ingredients and stir together very well. Once everything is mixed, start packing the mixture into your molds.
I grabbed my mold at Michael’s Craft Store. It’s actually a heart muffin pan. You can use whatever mold you would like but I suggest it be metal and not flimsy.
Once the mixture is packed, lay out a soft towel on the counter and a piece of parchment paper on top (this helps prevent towel marks from being left on your fizzie). You will use this in the next step.
After you have let your fizzies dry for 10-15 minutes, flip your mold over on to the parchment paper and the fizzies should fall right out. You might have to gently tap the bottom if one or two are stuck.
Let them dry on the towel and parchment for 24 hours before sending them out as gifts or before using one.
