Foaming Bath Oil Balls

1/4 cup baking soda
2 tbs. citric acid or ascorbic acid (powdered vitamin C)
1 tbs. borax powder (for softening)
2 tbs. powdered sugar (for binding)

2 tbs. sweet almond oil
1 tsp. vitamin E oil (preservative)
1/4 tsp. fragrance or essential oil
Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl and stir until well blended. Drizzle in almond oil and stir until mixture is moistened. Add vitamin E oil and fragrance and stir until well mixed. Take teaspoon size globs of mixture and form into ball shapes with fingers. (Mixture will be VERY crumbly and fragile, so do the best you can. Add a little bit more of the vitamin E oil... I find that helps.) Place the balls on a sheet of wax paper and leave alone for 2 to 3 hours. After 2 to 3 hours, reshape balls. Let the balls air-dry and harden for 10 days. Store balls in a closed container to protect from moisture. To use, plop a ball into your bathtub in warm water!
