Fizzy-Bath-Powder1

This fizzy bath recipe is pure joy! It’s the perfect remedy to a busy, stressed-out day: you’re smiling as you make it and giggling when you use it! It’s completely all-natural, and if you don’t already have the ingredients in your kitchen – you’re going to want to pop into the supermarket, today! And parents, if you’re little one ever complains about not wanting to take a bath – whip this up! It’s some kind of magical thing that just makes everyone instantly happy! (don’t worry, clean up is easy. Had to be said!)

Though a fizzy bath powder may seem like just a bit of silly fun, these ingredients are seriously good for your skin and health!

  • Raw chocolate: Tops the charts in antioxidant levels – it’s even higher than blueberries! Raw chocolate helps to protect your skin from free radicals which can cause the effects of early ageing.
  • Baking soda:  Both antibacterial and antifungal, baking soda helps to keep your skin clean. A baking soda bath is a great remedy for acne and nail fungus or irritated itchy skin.
  • Epsom salts: Delivers minerals to your body, which directly affect your health and wellbeing. Epsom salt consists of magnesium sulphate, which can be absorbed by the skin, replenishing mineral deficiencies. It even helps our body to better absorb nutrients in the that food we eat. Epsom salts are used to relieve tired aching muscles and as a detox treatment to pull out toxins from the body, especially heavy metals.
  • Citric acid: this is what reacts with the baking soda, to create that fun fizzy action, but it also has great skin properties of its own. Citric acid is a natural fruit acid, which is high in Vitamin C – the beauty vitamin. It helps to build collagen and keep our skin bright and youthful.
  • Vanilla: A mood enhancer, the scent of vanilla evokes feeling of calm and happiness.
  • Sprinkles: ok, this part is just a bit of silly fun – which, is also very, very good for you!

Let’s see it in action!

Have fun making your own things. Take the time to disconnect. Use lovely, natural ingredients and be kind to our planet and to your body. Sure, you can buy something like this – but making it is half the fun! Enjoy!

Chocolate Cupcake Fizzy Bath Powder Recipe

Ingredients for 1 bath:

  • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup epsom salts
  • 1/4 cup citric acid
  • 1/4 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1/2 tsp almond, olive or coconut oil
  • sprinkles

Directions:

  • Mix all the dry ingredients together;
  • Blend the oil and essence together;
  • Pour the wet mixture over the dry and work together with your hands;
  • Get in the bath, and sprinkle the powder in!

Tip for parents: give your kids a tray with the chocolate bath powder on top. It feels like wet sand, let them shape and play with it and watch them erupt in laughter as it gets wet and starts to fizz up!

  1. I was wondering where you got the citric acid? As I tried to look at phoon huat and cold storage but I could not find it. Is it known as something else?
