½ cup citric acid
¼ cup baking soda
1 tsp. Coconut oil, melted

Directions for DIY Kids Calming Bath Bombs
Mix up your cornstarch, epsom salt, citric acid, baking soda, essential oils, and coconut oil until it is well combined.
If you are coloring your fizzies- Add blue soap colorant a little at a time until you get the shade you want.
Spray mixture very slowly with water, constantly mixing and kneading with your hands.
The key to a perfect bath bomb/fizzie is to get it just damp enough so that it stays together until it dries but not so wet that you activate the fizzing.
When your mixture stays clumped together when you squeeze it then it’s plenty damp enough.
Press firmly into the mold, use the back of a spoon to make sure it's compressed in.
Let your fizzies dry overnight, gently remove from the mold and store in a container with a lid, keeping them away from water until ready to use.
To use: add 2 or 3 to warm bath water and let your little one soak.
