Bath Fizzies

Tools and Materials you will need:

1/2 cup citric acid
1 cup baking soda
3/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup fine sea salt
6 drops of dye coloring
15 drops of fragrance or essential oil

glass measuring cup
mixing bowl
small 2 ounce spray bottle
plastic pipettes
ice cube tray
clear PET container to display your finished bath fizzies.

Stir together citric acid, baking soda, and your cornstarch in your mixing bowl.
Stir in your fine sea salt.
Fill your empty 2 ounce spray bottle with water and your food coloring. Spritz mixture lightly (it should become damp but not fizz) until you can pack mixture with your hands.
Using pipette, add your fragrance or essential oil. Use a spoon or your hands to incorporate the scent into your fizzie blend.
Last you will need to spoon mixture into your empty ice cube tray, pressing firmly to make sure that mixture is compacted into molds. Allow the fizzies to dry overnight.
Gently pop out of tray and then transfer the square fizzies to a jar of your choosing for storing and display.
