Sinus Bath Fizzy Recipe and GIVEAWAY!!!
I have had quite a few requests for my sinus bath fizzy recipe because of this post. While I have made my bath bombs whole, most of the time I like to make them in halves. They get stretched a little bit further and it leaves me the option of adding more if I need it while not wasting any if I don't. So, here ya go:
My Basic Bath Bomb Recipe
8 oz. Baking Soda
4 oz. Citric acid
4 oz. Corn Starch
4 oz. Epsom Salts
4 Tbs. Coconut Oil
1/2 tsp. Vitamin E. Oil (optional)
Mix all the dry Ingredients except the citric acid. In a separate container melt your coconut oil if it is in its solid state and combine it with your vitamin e. oil if you choose to use it. Its a great skin conditioner but not necessary for the bomb to work. Add your wet ingredients to your dry ingredients and start to combine. Lastly, add the citric acid. The reason you wait for the citric acid is so that it has less opportunity to react and begin to 'fizz' when you don't want it to. When you pick up a handful of the mixture in your hands and squeeze it, if it stays in its form, it is ready to mold. If it crumbles, you may need to add more oil, no more than 1/2 tsp. at a time. Pack very tightly into your molds and release gently. Let them sit for at least 24 hours to harden.
For the sinus aspect you add:
1 tsp. Eucalyptus Oil
1 tsp. Menthol Crystals. (can be purchase at http://www.wholesalesuppliesplus.com/. They offer free shipping with a minimum order. You can also purchase smaller amounts from etsy sellers)
The menthol crystals will need to be melted. I do so with the oil. If you are melting with the microwave, DO NOT take a huge wiff when you open the door. The menthol will smell really strong and you will clear your sinuses faster than you want to. Don't worry though. The finished product isn't nearly as strong. The eucalyptus oil would be added at the same time as the vitamin e. oil or in place of it.
I hope my directions are clear. Please email me if you have any questions.
