I shared a package that I gave to my mom for her birthday and mentioned I’d share the details of the projects I made. These are some quick and personal projects that would make good everyday, birthday, Mother’s Day gifts, etc. Today, I am excited to share the Coconut Lime Fizzy Salt Scrub Recipe plus free printable.
I meant to share this earlier but my mom came to visit for my birthday and time got away with me as I prepped for that and then during her visit I was too focused on playing and shopping when she was here. I tried a bunch of different recipes trying to make some bath bombs but everything I tried, failed and failed horribly. After a bunch of experimenting I found something that I really like and oh my heavens it makes my skin so freaking soft! The bonus is, it comes together so fast and is an impressive gift to give for any occasion.
Here is what you will need:
***Citric acid was the hardest thing to find. Apparently Ball makes a citric acid that you can find in the canning section but none of the stores near me had any. I found mine at Whole Foods near the herbs. Affiliate links included for convenience.
In a medium sized bowl, mix the baking soda, citric acid, corn starch, coconut oil and epsom salts. Slowly add in the water, 1 teaspoon at a time. SERIOUSLY ONE AT A TIME!!! If you add it too quickly, it will trigger the fizziness and it will not stop and it ruins everything! Just trust me…
After you have mixed it all, put in the essential oil drops and the food coloring and things will get really exciting. It smells so fresh and yummy.
It is crumbly and has great texture that makes for such a good exfoliant.
Seriously, this stuff is awesome. You can scrub it right on your skin or drop some in the tub while you are running the bath and it will start fizzing a little big. It’s like a little bath bomb in the scrub and I love it! I’ve also created a two label options to go along with it that you can print out and attach to a jar before giving it out.
