Peppermint Bath Fizzies

Last Christmas, I made bath gift baskets for friends and family. I had never made bath fizzies before, so I bought a kit to do it.  It had everything I needed to make the fizzies. I already had some essential oils (doTERRA makes the ones I recommend.), so I used some of my own, too. I went ahead and posted the ingredients and instructions below in case you want to try it without the kit.


½ Cup Citric Acid
1 Cup Baking Soda
½ Cup Cornstarch
10-15 Drops Peppermint Essential Oil
½ tsp. Almond Oil
Powdered food color (Optional)
Spray bottle filled with cold water
Molds (some came with the kit or you can use mini muffin pans)


-Combine ½ C citric acid, 1 C of baking soda, and ½ C cornstarch. If not mixed well, the fizzies will be grainy. Pass the citric acid through a sifter if there are many lumps.
-Add food coloring. Only add a small amount as it is very concentrated. The color will show up after the water is added.
-Add 10-15 drops of peppermint essential oil and ½ tsp of almond oil. Mix quickly and mix well.
-While stirring the mixture with one hand, hold the spray bottle in the other and lightly spray with water just until the mixture can be packed together. Do not over spray. I over sprayed the first time, and ended up with goopy fizz balls that never set up right.
-As soon as mixture can be packed together, you can start filling the molds one at a time.
-Allow molds to set for 30-90 minutes. Invert onto a cookie sheet and gently tap out the fizzies.
-Allow to air dry for at least 4 hours.
-I stored mine in plastic bags, and labeled them.

How to order essential oils:
