It caresses and pleases

When you return frozen from your winter walk, slide one or two (or three) into the hot water, reach for a good book and wrap yourself in a velvety bath. Then snuggle up in a warm blanket and enjoy silky soft skin, a clear mind and peace of mind.

These fizzy drinks are so good that once you try them, you probably won't want to share them with anyone. :) So if you're making them as a Christmas gift, let us know and mix up a double batch right away. They are as if they were made for winter days, their color and the foam they create are reminiscent of a freshly fallen thick snow cover and they smell sparkling and calm like frost-kissed nature.

It fizzes, it foams, it washes, it smells

We have already told you what fizzy bath bombs are and how they work in one of the previous fizzy articles. The magic is in mixing acidic citric acid and alkaline baking soda. A few ingredients that the skin loves, such as Epsom salt or nourishing butter, are added to this, and with the least amount of liquid added, the mixture is mixed, which holds together after pressing.

An improved classic

But these fizzy drinks are quite different! The entire Winter Forest edition plays with creamy white color, soft and rich textures and sparkling scents. And that's what we thought about when mixing sparkling wine. Since baking soda, citric acid and Epsom salt are white, we didn't have to deal with the color. But what we wanted to support and capture was the rich foam, velvety water after dissolving the sparkling water and the silky feeling on the skin after the bath. And that's where Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, or SCI, coconut milk powder and oat colloidal powder comes into play.

Why is it there?

SCI, as creepy as its name sounds, is a salt derived from coconut oil and isothioic acid that delivers the richest, creamiest, and simply the best bubble bath you've ever experienced with a fizzy bath. It does not create the classic pearl or bubble effect that classic sparkling bombs can, but a thick, velvety layer that is delicate and more than real foam. It is beautiful. Coconut (or other) dried milk not only provides a soothing creamy color to the water, but also nourishes, softens and regenerates the skin and removes dead cells. Oat colloidal powder hydrates and soothes the skin, and also creates a protective layer on it that prevents damage.

The perfect winter scent

The smell of these fizzy drinks is probably the most beautiful winter scent we've ever mixed, really. Although it may sound a little strange, it perfectly describes the Christmas and New Year mood as well as the frosty days and nights. It is a balanced combination of fresh pine, sparkling cypress, cooling eucalyptus and warm soothing vanilla. Once you smell it, you'll never get enough.

A bit of glitter

Winter forest sparkling wine is elegant and simple, just as we wanted. Therefore, we only lightly dusted their surface with purple glitter, which will add a festive and winter touch. But you can do whatever you want with the decoration. You can mix colored mica powders, cosmetic pigments or our new completely degradable glitters into the mixture or sprinkle or draw on the ready-made bombs as you like, as you can find here.

Press it into the mold

If you're already a fizzy drinker, even making these white beauties won't put you off. If you are making fizzy drinks for the first time, be sure to carefully press the mixture into the molds - the formulation is slightly more crumbly due to the higher content of dry ingredients (milk and colloidal oats) and the absence of oils and butters. But it is certainly nothing that should discourage you from production, you would be missing out on a lot!

Now let's mix!

What does it take?

– 240 grams of baking soda

– 120 grams of citric acid

– 65 grams of Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (SCI)

– 55 grams of Epsom salt

– 30 grams of dried coconut milk

– 10 grams of oat silk

– 6 grams of Polysorbate 20

– 18 drops of Pine essential oil

– 12 drops of Eucalyptus essential oil

– 8 drops of Cypress essential oil

– 8 drops of vanilla cosmetic fragrance

Fairy water in a spray bottle

– High percentage alcohol in a spray bottle

Glitters, mica, bioglitters

Molds or other utensils, according to the shape that the sparkling wine should have

How to do it?

In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients – baking soda, citric acid, epsom salt, SCI, oat powder and milk powder. Make sure there are no lumps in the mixture. Measure out the Polysorbate and add essential oils to it, and then pour it all into the prepared loose mixture. First, mix with a silicone spatula to prevent the concentrated essential oils from settling 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. This mixture is a bit drier due to the absence of oil and butter, but don't be alarmed.

Once everything is nicely mixed, 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.

If you want glitter or other decorations on the surface of the sparkling wine, first pour a thin layer of the chosen decoration into the prepared molds and then press the sparkling mixture briskly into the selected molds and "knead" well. Then 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, feel free to play around with other decorations. When they are dry, carefully store them in an airtight box or bag to prevent moisture from reaching them and the fragrance essences from evaporating. They should last at least a year this way.

When you're in the mood for a nice bath, simply fill your tub with hot water and drop a fizzy drink (or more) into the bath.

I want to make it but a little different!

You can use SLSa (Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate) instead of SCI (Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate).

Feel free to replace the coconut milk with other dry cosmetic milk, goat, donkey, sheep or mare will be great (if you want to gift vegans, leave plant-based coconut milk in the recipe).

Oat powder can be replaced with other powdered treasures such as dried yogurt powder, urea, silk powder or panthenol. Alternatively, replace the oat powder with powdered milk or Epsom salt.

Polysorbate 20 is a good substitute for Polysorbate 80. If you don't have one, you can leave it out, but you have to expect worse dispersion of essential oils and their less stability.

Choose essential oils freely according to your nose or your home stock of scents.

You can replace fairy water with distilled water or other flower water. However, the mixture will react faster and the bubbles in the bath will fizz less. It really makes a difference!

Distilled water can also be substituted for high-percentage alcohol, but we don't really recommend it. In addition, you can use high-percentage alcohol for many other products and activities.

Don't you have popsicle molds or tongs? So you don't have to worry about it at all! We made these fizzy drinks using measuring cups, it went beautifully and the fizzy drinks turned out very nice. Don't be afraid to let your imagination run wild and look for unconventional solutions. :)

Choose glitter according to your taste. You can sprinkle them directly into the "dough" or use them to decorate ready-made fizzy drinks.
