You need a little more pampering in your life. And those that you love need a little more self-care, too. So why not make these super easy DIY Christmas tree bath fizzies to give as gifts or to indulge yourself?

Supplies:


  • 1 cup baking soda 
  • 1/2 cup citric acid 
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil 
  • Water
  • Green food coloring

Combine the baking soda, citric acid and coconut oil together in a bowl.

Next, you'll add in water a little bit at a time. Just a little!


In fact, if you want to use a spray bottle or eye dropper, that would be great. You just need a little bit of water and combine everything using your hands. You'll want it to be slightly dense but not soaked. 


Add several drops of green food coloring, depending on how green you want the Christmas trees to look. You can use your hand to thoroughly mix the coloring in, but you'll probably have green stained hands. Better to use a spoon to mix.

Spoon the mixture into the Christmas Tree molds. Fill each mold about halfway. Use your fingers to press down to pack in the mixture. 


Add the remaining mixture on top of the packed down tree molds. Again, press down the mixture to pack in down in the molds.

Set the Christmas Tree bath fizzies in a cool or dry spot for 24 hours to allow them to set. 


Use 1-2 Christmas Tree bath bombs in a warm bath.

    does the food coloring not stain the skin when balm is used?

      I use meta powder from Amazon and so far so good with zero staining of the skin

    Doesn't the oil make the bathtub slippery?

    Is the coconut oil necessary or just for the added skin softening effect?

      Oil makes it stay packed together into whatever shape you form, but it’s not necessary, no. You can try a different oil, or you can omit it all together (but other modifications to the recipe should be made to compensate for loss of moist ingredients.) There are hundreds of different recipes online, but the basic key is using the right balance between “wet” ingredients and “dry” ingredients. You want the mix to be moist enough to hold its shape but dry enough that it does not activate the reaction between the acid and the base (the fizz). I have used jojoba oil or almond oil, both of which are great for skin. If it is the coconut smell that you dislike, you can get refined coconut oil that will not give off the coconut aroma. Hope this helps!
