Day 275 of our Green Year: Make Your Own Bubblebath

Nothing is better than a bubble bath, and every couple of months, it can be nice to have one. A couple of the people here at the ranch also enjoy to have a bubble bath, so Layla and I came up with the idea of making our own bubble baths.

Here are two recipes that we will be trying out, courtesy of Care2

Bubble Bath Mix for One Bath
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 tablespoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon cornstarch
2-3 drops essential oil

Bubble Bath Mix in Bulk Quantity
1 cup baking soda
1 cup cream of tartar
1/4 cup cornstarch
Up to 5 drops essential oil per bath (optional)

Combine the baking soda, cream of tartar, and cornstarch in a jar. Use a few tablespoons per bath. Add the essential oil at the time of the bath; otherwise the baking soda will neutralize the scent during storage.
