fizzy toilet bombs.

toiletbombs

I whipped these fizzy toilet bombs up in no time. You drop one in your toilet and let them do the cleaning and deoderizing. And since you use essential oils, I love how refreshing they make the bathroom smell! Drop one in your toilet bowl and watch it fizz, leaving your toilet fresh and clean. I found the directions here. 

1 1/3 cup baking soda
½ cup citric acid
1 tsp water
30 drops Lavender essential oil
30 drops Peppermint essential oil
30 drops Lemon essential oil

Mix the baking soda and citric acid together in a small bowl. The next step is to add the water and essential oils to the mixture. To minimize the fizzing action, use a small spray bottle that produces a fine mist.

Gently mist and stir the dry mixture until all of the oils have been added. Test the mixture at this point by squeezing some in your fist. If it isn’t clumping very well, put a little more water in the spray bottle and wet it down some more, but just until it can form a good clump in your hand.

Then, pour the mixture into your silicone mold of choice, and pack each cell down firmly. Allow the bombs to dry for several hours, then remove them gently from the mold and they’re ready to use!

Ive noticed that my skin around my eyes have been drying out quite a bit, and I think it has to do with the harsh eye make up remover I may be buying from target. I took a stab at making my own since I had all the ingredients on hand and this will hopefully due the trick!

1 small mason jar with lid
round Cotton Pads
1 1/2 – 2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
1 Teaspoon of dr. bronners mild castille soap
Water
2-4 Drops of lavender essential oil (optional, but lavender is great for your skin!)

Directions:

1. Place cotton pads in the glass jar.
2. In a small bowl mix the coconut oil and castile soap and essential oil together.
3. Pour mixture over cotton pads.
4. Press down on the pads so the soap and coconut oil evenly absorb into them.
5. Pour water over pads, just enough wet the pads.
6. Place the lid on the jar and shake (this helps to evenly distribute the liquid over the pads).

Use one pad at a time to remove makeup from your face. Dispose of pad after use. Keep the lid on the jar to prevent the pads from drying out.
