A few months ago, my niece and I decided to host a spa party for a few of her friends. For a fraction of the cost, we recreated the fancy bath fizzes and lip balms sold in stores. Most of the ingredients are probably in your cupboard and create natural products for pampering.
Olivia was excited to help make treats for her friends to take home in goodie bags. A few days before the party, she came over to make Cupcake Bath Fizzes and Honey Lemon Lip Balm.
The fizzes are made with baking soda, citric acid, olive oil and essential oils. (I was able to buy the citric acid and essential oils at the grocery store.) There is only tricky part—when spraying the witch hazel on the dry mixture, be sure to do so one squirt at a time and to use as little liquid as possible. If you get the mixture too wet, it will activate the fizz.
After the fizzes dried, Olivia piped the “frosting” on top.
