 You will need a fizz ball mould
Dry ingredients:
 2 cups Bicarbonate soda
 1 cup citric acid
 1 cup maizena/ cornstarch
 Bath salt dye to colour
 Dried botanicals for added texture
Wet ingredients:
 5 tbsp sweet almond oil
 1 tbsp water or rose water
 q.s. Fragrance oil or essential oil
 4 Tablespoons polysorbate 20

1

Method

Combine the dry ingredients together.

Seperately combine the wet ingredients together.

Take enough dry ingredients to fill the mould and place it in a bowl.

Lightly spritz the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients. Pack the mixture tightly into the mould in both sides, leaving some on the rim of the mould to act as the glue to hold the two sides together. Then gently remove the ball from the mould. Use a knife to neaten the ball. Set the fizz ball on a wood tray or cloth to dry out. Then proceed to make the rest one at a time.

Tips: Dont use too much wet ingredients otherwise it will start fizzing prematurely.

In winter I usually put the dry ingredients in the microwave for 3 seconds just to warm them slightly prior to spritzing them.
