Introduction to a guest blog from Suds.
It’s the summer holidays!!! I used to love the summer holidays so much when I was little,
but I know my dad used to get stuck for ideas to keep us occupied – especially on the days
where the weather wasn’t that great. You too can keep your little ones occupied by
getting them to get creative in the kitchen! Fizzing bath salts are loads of fun to make and
use, and can be made from normal kitchen ingredients. Once you’re used to making them,
you can play around with the ingredients to create something unique to you… and they
make amazing crafty gifts.
You will need:
1 cup bicarbonate of soda
1 cup Epsom salt
½ cup citric acid (extra bicarb can be used if you don’t have citric acid)
½ cup cornflour
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp food colouring
5 drops of your favourite essential oil
Mix all the ingredients together in a glass bowl, stirring in the food colouring well so that its
mixed through the dry ingredients fully.
Carefully spoon the mixture into a glass jar and seal the lid.
Tie a pretty bow around the jar so you can give it as a gift. Add as much as you want to each
It really is that easy!
That’s it. Super easy, really cheap and great fun for the kids! Feel free to swap the olive oil
for jojoba or coconut oil if you prefer. You can miss out the food colouring or use soap mica
instead if you like. Super clever smalls can even split their salts into separate bowls
before they add the food colouring so that they can add different colours to each bowl to
make a rainbow jar of fizzing bath salts! If anyone is creative enough to do this, please tag
me in your social media posts as I’d love to see!
Lots of love
