Dear Chicago House,
Winter is never ending in Chicago…March is always such a disappointing month because for the 4 years I have lived here I have assumed it will bring signs of Spring…the greening up of the grass, bulbs poking their noses through the soil. But NO! Instead the days continue to be freezing and we still get the odd 6″ of snow.
I don’t like the cold, which is a bit tough when I live in such a prolonged cold place. My solutions..baths…lots and lots of hot lovely soaks in the tub.
And to jazz up those long luscious warm moments I have knocked up a batch of bath bomb.
Chuck them in the bath and they fizz and splutter infusing the water with whatever essential oil you have used to make them…in my case peppermint.
How to Make Bath Bombs
- 1 3/4 cups Baking Soda
- 2 cups Cornstartch
- 1 cup Citric Acid
- Gel Food coloring (optional)
- Baby oil
- 5-5 drops Essential oil
