Goat milk bath fizzies

These are super easy and fun to make. Your skin will be so soft and happy after using this! If you cant get citric acid, you can always just make this as a milk bath and use it all at once.  All you need is Powdered Milk (cornstarch can be substituted), Baking Soda, Citric Acid (this is what makes it fizz), Olive Oil, Dried Lavender Flowers, Lavender essential Oil, and a Silicone Mold. You can make this without the mold, and just have a fizzy milk bath. Also you can leave out the lavender, or use other oils and flowers. 


Mix the dry ingredients first, and make sure their isn't too many clumps. I used a for to do this, but a whisk will work well also.

Then add in the Lavender.

Drizzle in the olive oil, starting with 1 tbsp, adding more until the mixture just comes together.

Take some of the mixture and pinch between your fingers. If it sticks together but isn't soaked with oil, then you've got it!

When putting the mixture in your mold, pinch it together in between your fingers first, then gently press into the molds. If you press it in to hard then the mixture could stick and you wont get perfect shapes.

Turn the mold over and press the middle gently and they should pop out easily. 

 They fizz really well. You should only need a few for a whole bath. About 3-4 tbsp. But go ahead and use more if you would like.

  • 1/4 Cup of Baking Soda
  • 1/4 Cup of Citric Acid (I get this in the baking aisle at my grocery store, but you might find it with the sprouting items at your local grocery store.)
  • 3 and 1/2 Tbsp of Goat Mil Powder (you can substitute cornstarch for this but it wont be as nourishing)
  • 1 Tbsp of Dried Lavender
  • 5 drops of lavender oil
  • 1 Tbsp to 1/4 cup of Olive Oil (I usually use 1/8 cup or 2 Tbsp)
Keep in a cool dry place. If you aren't going to use it up vary soon then you may want to keep it in the refrigerator.
