Re: bath bombs - 1998/05/17 15:36 "I have two recipes; the first turned really badly and rather than fizzing, just sat in the bottom of the tub, so I had to throw the whole batch out. But try this recipe -- it works better. I haven't gotten it to the quality of store-bought bath bombs, but it is close -- enjoy =)

Fizzing Bath Oil Balls


1/4 c. baking soda

2 tlbs. citric acid or absorbic acid (powdered vit. C)

1 tlbs. Borax powder (for softening)

2 tlbs. powdered sugar (for binding)

2 tlbs. sweet almond oil

1 tsp. Vitamin E oil (preservative)

1/4 tsp. fragrance or essential oilá


Combine dry ingredients in a bowl and stir until well blended. Drizzle in almond oil and stir until mixture is moistened. Add Vit. E oil and fragrance and stir until well mixed. Take teaspoon size globs of mixture and form into ball shapes with fingers. (mixture will be VERY crumbly and fragile , so do the best you can.) Place the balls on a sheet of wax paper and leave alone for 2-3 hours. After 2-3 hrs, reshape balls. Let the balls air-dry and harden for 10 days. Store balls in a closed container to protect from moisture. To use, plop a ball into your bathtub in warm water!
