Here’s what you need:

Here’s what you do: 

  1. Mix together the baking soda, citric acid, corn starch, and salt in a bowl.
  2. Mix together the water, almond oil, and Young Living Essential Oil in another bowl. Add the food coloring if you choose.
  3. SLOWLY, and I mean slowly, add the liquid to the dry ingredients, one or two drops at a time and keep whisking the mixture.  The second you add the wet ingredients, a chemical reaction happens-  the volcano eruption we all used to make as kids.  Adding the liquid one or two drops at a time moistens the dry ingredients, but doesn’t make it bubble.  You want the consistency to be like wet sand that sticks together when you squeeze it.
  4. Once everything is incorporated, press the mixture into the mold of your choice.
  5. I have to admit, I didn’t have any fancy shaped molds. I used a stainless steel measuring cup as my mold.
  6. You can remove the fizzies as soon as they are pressed into the mold.  Be gentle when handling them as they may crumble at this point.
  7. Set the the fizzies on a piece of waxed paper to dry for a few hours.  Packup these fizzies in an airtight container, and enjoy!!!

Spread the love and relax!   🙂

  1. I had to read this because I posted my own version of this which was a total disaster a few Christmas seasons ago. Where do you get your citric acid? I’m pretty sure that was my big issue because I couldn’t find just citric acid. All we can get around here is the Ball canning citric acid which is mixed with a few other things. I think those other things caused the trouble!
