    What does the sodium citrate (baking soda + citric acid) do besides emulsify the lemon oil? It has no value as a cleaning agent. The bubbling does nothing. It just releases CO2.

    I would like to try this. However there are only ingredients listed. How much citric acid, baking soda and essential oil do you use? also can you use any essential oil that you like?

    These are basically bath bombs. I know, because I've made thousands.
