How about a little spring treat for your body?  Try these fizzy bath bombs when you need to relax – or even in a footbath.  Simple and decadent – my favorite way.

Fizzy Spring Bath Cubes

1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup Epsom salts
1/2 cup citric acid
1/2 cup filtered water
5 drops ylang-ylang essential oil
5 drops frankincense essential oil

Combine all of the ingredients in a glass mixing bowl.  Pack the mixture into clean ice cube trays and let dry.  (You can also form into balls, but the ice cube tray is easier.)  Use 2-3 cubes for a bath and store the remainder in a glass jar.  Doubles easily – and makes a great gift!

You can find Epsom salts in the Health and Beauty section of any grocery store or pharmacy.  Citric acid is available at local co-op groceries in the bulk tea and spices aisle.  My favorite source for essential oils is Veriditas Botanicals, a locally-owned (and woman-owned!) company based in Bloomington, Minnesota. You can find them at metro area co-ops.
