Are you ready to make your children squeal with delight? Are you ready to thrill your unicorn obsessed friends? Check out this DIY fizzy bath dust aka…. Fizzy Unicorn Dust or Fizzy Galaxy Dust or Fizzy Fairy Dust.
You can really name it whatever you want or just go with plain jane Fizzy Bath Dust but personally Unicorn, Galaxy, and Fairy dust are the favorites.
This DIY Fizzy Bath Dust is basically crumbled bath bombs with a dash of bath confetti.
It’s a two part recipe because you need to make the bath fizzies and the bath confetti but they are both very easy recipes to make.
You can make a lovely giant mason jar of this stuff to keep in your kids’ bathroom or portion out into small jars or bags and it makes a great gift (I love tacking them on to kids’ presents).
I am always careful to make sure that any products we use are all natural (especially if kids will be using them) and this Fizzy Bath Dust is no different!
This recipe uses no scents (although you could add a few safe essential oils) and only all natural dyes.
DIY Fizzy Bath Dust
this amount is for one color of bath dust. you’ll want to make 2-3 colors
1/4 cup baking soda
1/8 cup epsom salt
1/8 cup citric acid
1/2 tbs melted coconut oil
spritz of water if needed
Directions for Bath Dust:
Whisk all dry ingredients in a bowl.
In a separate small bowl, mix coconut oil and food dye as well as you can.
Add liquids to the dry ingredients and mix well.
You want to be able to mold your mixture in your hand but it still should be more dry than wet.
If you need a bit more moisture, spray water onto mixture on spritz at a time till moldable consistency.
Mold mixture in your hand by making a fist (wearing rubber gloves is advised).
Place bath dust clumps in a bowl to dry.
Allow to dry for 24 hours before breaking down any large pieces.
DIY Bath Confetti
split the 1 sheet of paper into as many colors as you want
Dissolving paper (1 sheet will be enough)
Liquid castile soap
star hole punch
Directions for Bath Confetti:
In a small bowl, mix a couple tablespoons of castile soap with a drop or two of natural dye. (if doing more colors, use multiple bowls) – Psst, I used activated charcoal for the black stars!
Cut dissolving paper into smaller pieces if making multiple colors.
Paint your paper sheets with the dyed soap on both sides of the paper. You only need a thin coat.
Place the soap paper on a cooling rack to dry for a few hours.
Once dry, use a star hole punch to cut out your bath confetti.

Where do you get disolvable paper

Can you use shea butter in place of the oil?
You should be able to use shea butter instead of the oil. I imagine you’ll want it in liquid form first.
Are you able to use dove baby soap instead of the Castile?
I have not tried a soap other than Castile… you should be able to use any soap but I can’t say for certain.
Hi, how long does this last for once made up?
I’d say about 6 months.
Does it make the water bubbly much or just fizzes when put in the water?
It basically fizzes for just a few seconds. It’s more of a quick fun thing than a long bath bomb kind of thing.
