Fizzy Patchouli Bath Salts

  • 1 cup cornstarch
  • 1 cup citric acid
  • 2 cups baking soda
  • patchouli essential oil or patchouli fragrance oil
Patchouli is a strong, earthy fragrance, derived from the leaves of the patchouli plant, that is used as a sensual base note in many expensive commercial perfumes. It's also a fragrance associated with hippy boutiques in the seventies. Use sparingly - a little patchouli goes a long way!

Thoroughly mix constarch and citric acid, then add patchouli essential oil or fragrance oil, as desired. Stir in baking soda and mix thoroughly. Use a quarter to one half a cup per bath.
