Drop and glow. How simple is that? Here are the recipes for a couple of spa treats that you can slip into any hot, steamy bath. I gifted these with a couple of candles (silver candlestick holders with black or midnight blue candles are super chic for this holiday season) so the receiver can soak in style while adopting that great, holiday glow.
1¼ cups baking soda
½ cup powdered citric acid
witch hazel in a spray bottle
30 drops of mandarin essential oil
snowman mold (I used a jello jiggler mold)
small bags and ribbon to package
oh cute, say hi to my snowman army!
step 1: mix baking soda and citric acid together
stpe 2: add the essential oil while stirring
step 3: spray with witch hazel while stirring
step 4: spray JUST until the mixture holds together when squeezed by hand
(test after about 4 light sprays – the mixture should not look wet!)
step 5: press into mold and turn out onto tinfoil
step 6: let set at least 2 days before bagging
Note: it is very important not to spray too much witch hazel. If the fizzers are hard to get out of the mold, the mixture is probably too wet.
step 1: mix all dry ingredients
step 2: drip in essential oils while stirring
*for colour, you can mix in some diluted food colouring to the final product
