How to Store Homemade Fizzy Bath Salts

You must store this bath fizz in an air-tight container. Moisture, including humidity in the air, will cause these bath salts to fizz or to harden into clumps.

Can I Add Essential Oils to the DIY Bath Salts?

Yes, you can add essential oils if you would like an aromatherapy bath salt. We suggest adding about 20 drops of essential oil. You can use one single oil, or combine several different essential oils for a lovely fragrance.

Bath Salts vs. Fizzy Bath Salts

The fizzy action of these DIY bath salts comes from the citric acid. The bubbling bath salts foaming in the water is not only fun, but it feels luxurious, too. Almost like you are at a fancy spa!

Bath salts do not have citric acid, so they do not bubble and fizz. Otherwise, the ingredients are very similar.

These bath salts make a great gift for:

  • Christmas
  • Birthdays
  • Thinking-of-You gifts
