Kudos to fall… and bath bombs!

Light a candle, make a cup of tea or a kettle, and fill up a bath. Slide one fizzy drink into the hot water and enjoy the perfect warm autumn atmosphere. Bath bombs are incredibly calming! It has a beneficial effect on several senses at once.

Sparklers provide fragrant aromatherapy effects, create beautiful visual effects, gently fizz and literally caress the skin thanks to the oils and butters in them. Combined with hot water, which relieves the cold and washes away unpleasant stress, it's an absolute treat.

And what about production? It couldn't be easier! In addition, children have a lot of fun. :) You can win when mixing them with colors, scents, shapes and subsequent decoration of the sparkling wine.

Why do we all love fizzy drinks so much?

If you haven't tried a fizzy bath bomb before, you might be wondering why there's so much hype around them. How can the baking soda and citric acid thing be beneficial for our skin? Vegetable oils or butters are added to effervescent drinks, which nourish the skin and retain the necessary moisture. After a bath, the skin is soft, smooth, soft... in short, satisfied.

And we probably don't have to convince you that a hot bath or shower is always a good idea in autumn, when we are often completely frozen. Not only the body but also the mind can relax in the warm water.

The aromatherapeutic effects of the bombs are then the icing on our fizzy cake.

So are you getting into them?

What are fizzy drinks without?

The basis of bath bombs is baking soda with citric acid, which react together in water and thus create the desired effervescent effect. We will also throw in Epsom salt, which has almost miraculous effects, which we can best use when taking a bath. We combine the loose ingredients into one solid ball with the help of cocoa butter with Polysorbate 80, a great natural emulsifier and dispersant, which ensures that the oils mix beautifully with the water (and also that the bathtub does not slide! :), and a little fairy water with a high percentage of alcohol. Warm autumn spices will add a wonderful aroma and color. Everything is highlighted with essential oils and decorated with mica powder.

Warm autumn fizzy drinks

We associate this time of year with pumpkin pie, baked apples and all things warm. That's why we chose spices like cinnamon, cloves, ginger, cardamom and nutmeg. But you can adjust your sparkling wine to your dream autumn scent.

You can also use another vegetable butter, such as shea, mango or tucuma butter, or replace cocoa butter with your favorite oil. Grape, almond, olive, sunflower and jojoba oils are perfect for sparkling wine. It's up to you! :)

What does it take?

- 400 grams of baking soda (you can also buy baking soda with citric acid in the perfect ratio as a mixture for making fizzy drinks!)

- 200 grams of citric acid

- 70 grams of Epsom salt

- Optional warming spices such as ground cinnamon, ginger, cloves and nutmeg

- 15 grams of Polysorbate 80

- 30 grams of cocoa butter

- 6 grams of essential oils (you can find a list of our autumn favorites at the end of the instructions!)

- Elven water (or distilled water) and high-percentage alcohol (min. 70%) as needed, in containers with a sprayer

- Mica powders mixed mixed in high-percentage alcohol and a pipette

How to do it?

Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Melt cocoa butter in a water bath and add Polysorbate 80 and essential oils to it.

Pour the liquid ingredients into the loose ones and mix first with a silicone spatula so that you don't have warm oils and fragrant essential oils on your skin. After mixing for a while, calmly slide your hands into the bowl (still in ideal condition with gloves :)) and play with the mixture as if you were making crumbs. You can tell that it is well mixed by the fact that when you press the mixture in the palm of your hand, it will stick together a little (just like our crumb).

Now it's time to add the liquids - elven water and alcohol. But be careful here! If we add too much liquid, the mixture will froth while still in the bowl or in the molds. And we don't want that, we have to make noise in the bathtub. That's why we help ourselves with a nebulizer or spray bottle, thanks to which the liquid disperses evenly. We use elven water and high-percentage alcohol because they react much less than plain water. In addition, thanks to them, the bombs dry and harden faster.

Spread the prepared mixture over the entire surface of the bowl and spray elf water, quickly mix with your hands, spray again, mix and so on. About 5-8 spritzes of faerie water should be enough. When the mixture is relatively pliable (it will still be loose, but will hold its shape when pressed), replace the elven water with alcohol and mix in a few more spritzes of alcohol. You can tell when it's ready by the fact that the mixture holds its shape nicely after pressing and survives gentle tapping with your fingers.

Quickly press the mixture into the selected molds and knock out the bombs straight away or let them dry in the molds. The longer you work with the mixture, the drier it will be. So if it starts to crumble and the bombs won't hold their shape, don't be afraid to mix in a few more splashes of liquid.

When you're happy with the shapes and the bombs have had some time to dry (just a few minutes), it's time to decorate!

For our beautiful splashes, mix about 1 gram of mica powder with 1 to 2 teaspoons of rubbing alcohol (99% isopropyl alcohol is ideal). Draw the sparkling solution into a pipette and, with a few sharp movements, sprinkle the sparkling wine prepared on a napkin or baking paper right next to it. Splash, drip, spray… and really enjoy it!

Then throw the finished bomb into a hot tub and enjoy. Store sparkling wine in a dry place in an airtight container, if moisture does not reach them, they will delight you all year long!

What about the scents?

The essential oils that we can't get enough of in autumn, and we used several of them in these autumn fizzy drinks, are:

- Cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, orange - they get along so well together!

Ready-made compositions that you just need to drop into the mixture and not worry about suitable combinations are:

- Orange and cinnamon

- Hot spices

- Cardamom

And if you still haven't chosen or want to try several scent combinations, you can find the entire article on how to conjure up a warm autumn atmosphere at home using scents in several different ways here!
