Milk Bath Fizzers

Milk Bath Fizzers (from our "Home Spa Retreat".)

1 tbsp powder milk
1/2 cup baking soda
1/4 cup corn starch
1/2 cup citric acid
1.5 ounces distilled water
15 drops or ml
favorite fragrance oil or essential oil
***You will need to put your water in a spray bottle.

Mix together all of your dry ingredients. Using your water, spritz your mixture lightly(avoid adding too much water at one time, this will cause your mix to fizz.) Continue misting the mixture w/ water while you stir until all the water is gone. Add your fragrance or essential oil and stir making sure that you have a consistant blend. Your mixture may appear dry, but if you can pick up a handful and mold it together then it is the right consistency. Press your mixture into the bottom of a mold (we used a drawer organizer 9" x 6" x 2"). Your mixture will not completely fill the mold to its top- do not worry you are doing it right. Now let the fizzer blend harden over the next 4-8 hours. Then take something and chip out the fizzers so you have a bunch of random sized chunks. We had enough to fill 2 of our 8 oz clear PET jars and 1 of the 4 oz PET jars. (if you want to color your fizzers use approx. 1/2 of our .15 cc scoops of any of the dyes. Add the dry color to your water.)

To use: Drop a couple into a warm bath and allow to dissolve. This recipe is awesome with peppermint and eucalyptus essential oil.
