Seaweed Art Cards
  • Fizzy Bath Salts

    These effervescent tablets when added to the bath, create soothing bubbles and make a delightful gift for both children and adults.

    1 cup baking soda
    1/2 cup cornstarch
    1/2 cup citric acid
    10 to 20 drops of a fragrance oil
    10 drops of food coloring
    Additional supplies:
    Large, deep soap molds (available at craft stores)
    Wax paper coveredĀ  cookie sheet
    Water mister
    Thin sheet of cardboard

    Place the first three ingredients in a large bowl and mix thoroughly. Scoop out 1/2 cup and place in a small bowl. Add the drops of food coloring and mix well. Return the contents of the small bowl to the large bowl and mix again. Remove 1/3 cup of the blended, colored salts to a small bowl. Spritz lightly with a fine mist. Be careful not to add too much or the salts will start to fizz. Using your hands, mix the salts. They should be damp enough to hold together. If not, mist a little more. Pack the damp salts into a clean, dry mold. Press down hard to pack in. Let set for few minutes. Place a thin piece of cardboard over the mold and gently flip over. The solid bath salt should fall out. Carefully slide the fizzy bath salt onto the wax paper covered cookie sheet and let dry overnight. Repeat the process with the other salts. Wraps salts in colored tissue paper and tie up with ribbon.
