You cannot do any DIY without creating your own bath bombs….but I have been offered to do them with a friend of mine, so I have looked for an alternative that is a lot easier and accessible to everyone : The Fizzy Bath Salts !
However, please be careful as it includes ingredients that should be manipulated with care (one of the ingredients even has “acid” in its name !)
- 3 cups of Epsom salts
- A drop of Mint food colouring
- 20 drops of white musk essential oil
- 2 cups of baking soda
- 1 cup of citric acid
- 1 pair of gloves
- Little glass jars
Grab a big bowl, put your gloves on, and pour the three cups of Epsom salts in the bowl.
Add the food colouring and the essential oil then stir until complete absorption of both of them by the salt. For your information, the food colouring I am using has been requesting a lot of stirring.
Add the baking soda and mix until a uniform, lump-free and smooth consistency is achieved.
Finally, carefully add the citric acid and stir again and again (I know I am repeating myself but I told you the recipe was easy)!
And there we go! This salt shall be used in the next three months and should ideally be stored in a glass container.
This morning, I have tried some, and realised the salts were slightly stuck together when I wanted to put some in my bath, so before offering it, I have added a little wooden fork to help loosen the salt grains.
The Minty Fizzy Bath Salts dissolve in a bath of 37-39°c, it helps relax tired, stiff and aching muscles. Relax in your bath for a good 20 minutes to enjoy the benefits from the Epsom Salts.
Precautions: Do not use on broken skin. Avoid contact with eyes. Seek Doctor advice before use if suffering from a medical condition. If irritation occurs rinse with water. If it persists, seek medical attention.
