Patchouli Fizzy Bath Salts

Patchouli is a very strong, earthy fragrance, made from the leaves of the patchouli plant, that is used as a sensual base note in many expensive commercial perfumes. It’s also a fragrance of the hippy boutiques in the seventies. Use sparingly – a little patchouli goes a long way!

Completely mix cornstarch and citric acid, then add patchouli oil as desired. Stir in baking soda and mix thoroughly. Use a quarter to one half a cup per bath.

Old Fashioned Fizzy Bath Salts
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup citric acid
10-20 drops fragrance oil
Mix all the dry ingredients well, you may want to sift together. Scoop out about 1/2 cup of mixture to add color and fragrance. Blend well, then add back to entire mixture and mix till color and fragrance and thoroughly blended. The color in this will become somewhat darker as it dries. This mixture will go in plastic bags without seeping out. You can use anywhere from 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup for a bath. Mixture “fizzes’ as it hits the water and disperses much quicker than bath salts.
