Fizzing Bath Salts

This recipe comes from Janice Cox's book "Natural Beauty for All Seasons."


  • 1/3 cup baking soda
  • 1/4 cup citric acid crystals or powder
  • 1 Tbsp. cornstarch


Mix together all the ingredients and place in a clean, dry container with a tight fitting lid. Be careful to keep your salts dry because moisture will cause the salts to start fizzing in the container.

To use: Sprinkle about 1/4 cup of the salts into a warm tub of water, soak, and enjoy.

4 parts sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) to 2 part citric acid. You can get this from the chemist or from the supermarket. Make sure it's suitable for culinary use.

Mix the two together and sprinkle over your bath. It's simple, cheap and fun!

As a variation, if you add 1 part scented oil and mix well, then put the mixture into moulds, you can use this recipe for fizzing bath bombs.
