Fizzing Rose Petals


1 c. baking soda
3/4 c. citric acid
3 Tbsp. cornstarch
1/2 c. sea salt
handful rose petals, fresh or dried
glass bowl
clean glass jar
glass bowl

1. This mixture can be made with fresh or dried rose petals. If you're making it for immediate use, you can use fresh petals. If you're planning on making a batch for use later or as a gift, however, use dried rose petals: moisture from fresh rose petals could cause premature fizzing.

2. Combine baking soda, citric acid, cornstarch and sea salt in a glass bowl. After mixing together thoroughly, add the rose petals

3. Fill a dry glass jar with the mixture.

*Note: It's very important to keep the ingredients dry; otherwise, the fizzing will take place in the jar and not in the tub.

4. Draw yourself a warm bath and drop in a scoopful of the mixture; or decorate the jar and give as a gift
