make it: Fizzing Rose Petals
1 cup baking soda
¾ cup citric acid
3 tablespoons cornstarch
½ cup sea salt
Handful rose petals fresh or dried
Clean glass jar
1. This can be made with fresh rose petals or dried. If you are making this for immediate use you can use fresh rose petals. If you are planning on making a batch for use later or as a ift make sure you use dried rose petals. The moisture from fresh rose petals could cause premature fizzing.
2. Combine baking soda, citric acid, cornstarch and sea salt into a glass bowl and mix well. Add rose petals.
3. Fill the glass jar with the mixture. Make sure your jar is very dry. It is very important to keep the ingredients dry or else the fizzing will take place in the jar and not in the tub.
4. Draw a warm bath and drop in a scoop or decorate the jar and give as a gift.
