Make It Fizz: Awesome Effervescents
On day 1 of this awesome Boot Camp is our “Make it Fizz” day where the author of THE book on fizzy bath products will teach YOU all her secrets to making things FIZZ: Bath Fizzies, Tub Truffles, Shower Steamers/Sinus Tabs, Fizzy Pops, & Color Surprise Bombs… oh my! We can guarantee that when you’re done with this class, the most difficult thing will be deciding which awesome fizzy bath product to try first. You will take home at least 33 different products, read on for details.
Bath Fizzies: In case you didn’t already know… a Bath Fizzy (or Fizzy Bath Bomb) is a little ball of effervescent goodness that you drop into your bathtub right after you get in. It fizzes, like an Alka Seltzer, releasing skin-softening emollients into your tub. In this intense hands-on class, Holly will walk you through step-by-step how to make the perfect bath bomb. You’ll learn how to formulate your own recipe, using yummy nut & seed butters and skin-nourishing oils. We’ll cover fragrance oils and the benefits of essential oils, colors (both natural and skin-safe liquid & powdered dyes), plus alternative ingredients that you can add to make them more luxurious. After taking this class, you will have bath bombs down pat. Take home 10 bath fizzies.
Tub Truffles: Next we will learn how to make bathtub truffles. What is a bath truffle? It is a bath fizzy that we will dress up to look like a scrumptious bath treat. We’ll experiment with both natural alternatives and fun eye-candy ones. These are similar to a Bath Melt, but they also fizz, and melt skin-softening butters right into you bath. You will not need lotion after this bath treat! Take home 8 bath truffles.
Shower Steamers: Shower steamers. or as some call them “Sinus Tablets” are a slow-fizzing puck that’s placed on the shower floor at the start of your shower. When hot water hits it, it will help open your sinuses with energizing aromas of peppermint, menthol, & eucalyptus. You’ll learn about menthol crystals, essential oils and fragrance oils, and understand how to choose the right ingredients to help make them last. Take home 5 shower steamers.
Fizzy Pops: Are you a sucker for fizzy bath products? Holly will teach you how to make just that… a fizzing sucker for the bath! They look good enough to eat (but trust us, you don’t want to do that). These are great for birthdays, baby showers or any party occasion you have coming up. They definitely make people stop & take a second look at your booth or farm stand. You’ll learn how make and embellish them, using fun decorations. Take home 5 fizzy pops.
Embedded Surprise Bombs: In the final portion of this fizz-tacular class, you’ll learn how to make a really popular surprise bomb that has a changing color bomb inside (say what?!?). That’s right… Holly will show you how to make Mini Color Tabs to put inside your bath fizzies. When they are placed in water, they’ll fizz… and when it gets to the center it will spit out delightful colors. You’ll also learn what other fun things you can add to make them extra special for kids of all ages. Take home 5 embed surprise fizzies.
