Bath Balls

Recipe by rsarahl

A little spa treat at home. Easy. Play around with your favorite essential oils to achieve a scent that you'll enjoy. Some of my favorites include chammomile, lavendar, neroli and rose. Try sandalwood or patchouli for a masculine scent.

Top Review by um-um-good

I hate having to leave only 1 star; however, this was a disappointment from start to finish. The mixture was soo hard that my blender almost burnt out. I couldn't roll it into balls, the texture was too tough. I managed to put a teaspoon size onto a baking sheet and baked according to directions. My kitchen smelled like a hair salon-not good. I had a bath with one and there was no fizz at all. The thing just bobbed around my tub. I used my hands to try to break it up and it was as if i had clumps of cream of wheat floating in my tub. This was sooo frustrating!! I hate leaving such a bad review-but I had no choice. This went right into the garbage. Sorry.
