Natural Aromatherapy Bubble Bath

Natural Aromatherapy Bubble Bath

Most of us donít think of bubble baths much more than the fun and
luxury of them, but natural bubble baths made with minerals and pure
essential oils are extra-special! They actually cleanse and provide
some aromatherapy!

1 cup each baking soda and cream of tartar
1/4 cup cornstarch
Up to 5 drops essential oil per bath (optional)

Combine the baking soda, cream of tartar, and cornstarch in a jar. Use a few tablespoons per bath. Add the essential oil at the time of the bath; otherwise the baking soda will neutralize the scent during storage.

I tried this and didn't get many bubbles. Any suggestions? Is it possible the amounts for cream of tartar and cornstarch should be reversed? Thanks. Kayla
