• Soda Bath Fizz

    How to make your own fun Soda Bath CraftThis delightfully fun, fragrant milk bath can be made in several different "flavors", for multiple occasions. It makes a lovely inexpensive Mother's Day Gift and is a great way to reuse those plastic water bottles.

    You'll need the Following:
    • 1 1/3 c. Epsom Salts or Sea Salts
    • 1 1/3 c. Baking Soda
    • 1/2 c. Powdered Milk
    • 1/2 c. citric acid powder (I purchase this in bulk at walmart in the pharmacy section or at health food stores in the beer/wine making section)
    • 20 Oz. Plastic Soda or Water Bottle, washed out & Dried thoroughly (or 24 oz and add 2 T. More powdered milk)
    • 10-15 drops of Vanilla Essential Oil Or Essential oil of your choice (Please note, Fragrance oils Can be used, but they tend to irritate sensitive skin. Essential oils are pure & less likely to irritate or cause reaction.) See differences

    Now.. How to Make Them!

    In a large bowl combine the salts & baking soda, stirring thoroughly. Carefully add in the powdered milk, squishing it through your hands or sifting it to break up any lumps.

    Next, add your essential oils for your desired fragrance (see list of ideas below!), and blend well. Finally, add your citric acid, and mix it in if children are making these, be sure they wash their hands immediately following this step.)

    Next, Roll a piece of paper into a cone shape to use as a funnel, or use a funnel & carefully pour the bath fizz gently into the bottle. The Contents may settle a bit, tap it gently on the counter, continue filling & then cap it off tightly.

    Now.. It's time to decorate your ...Soda Bath Fizz.

    <---( This is a view of what your fizz can do!)

    You can decorate your bottle several ways.... by adding a strip of paper (printed on your computer) as a label, or with pretty ribbons. Let your imagination run wild as you design a "soda".


    Cream Soda Fizz: Vanilla Essential Oil

    Cherry Vanilla
    simply add 2 pkgs of unsweetened Cherry Kool-aid to the above recipe. The color will be a very light pink, & smell delicious!

    Ginger-Ale : Omit Vanilla Essential oil & add 10 drops Ginger Essential Oil & a couple small slices of dried ginger root if desired. "Ginger Ale Fizz - soak out whatever "ales" you."

    Tropical Paradise:
    add 2 pkgs tropical punch kool-aid

    Grape Soda Fizz: Omit Essential Oil & add 2 pkgs Grape Kool-aid

    Orange Soda Fizz:
    omit essential oil & add 2 pkgs orange kool-aid

    Orange Cream Soda Fizz:
    vanilla essential oil & 2 pkgs orange cool aid

    Attach a Tag:

    • I'd "Soda" like to wish you a Merry Christmas!
    • Add a couple Tablespoons to a full tub, It's Soda-lightful!
    • We're Soda-Lighted to wish you a Happy Holiday

      Do any of the kool aid recipes stain the bathtub or the bather? I love this idea, but can't get past the thought of cherry kool aid stains.

      Great question. I, too, love the idea but am afraid of the kool aid staining the skin and the tub.

      Alternative: You can use dye free Kool Aid.

      The Kool Aid does not dye the person or the tub as long as you do not use a high concentrate of the Kool aid.

      Kids love how the water changes color.

      Dye free Kool aid might be a safer way to go. I have used other bath concoctions like this one and it did not dye the tub.

      I love this idea! My sister loves baths and she has 3 yr. old grand daughter that loves tub time! I may try the dye free kool-aid for my great niece and perhaps a lavender for my sister. Thanks so much!

      I have been going chemical free and this recipe is a perfect way for me to enjoy my baths without the store bought bath products full of chemicals I don't want. And both Epsom salts and baking soda are so very healthy to soak in!
