Loving this Meyer lemon bath fizzies recipe!
I picked up a bag of Meyer lemons at the store last week because they were on sale. I love buying fresh, in-season produce. This bath fizzies recipe was pretty easy to put together, taking probably only 15 minutes and then drying time. Plus, these wonderful bath fizzies require only a few ingredients which is a big plus in my book.
Not only does lemon smell amazing, this bath fizzies recipe utilizes lemon essential oil which has so many benefits.
Lemon essential oil has astringent and detoxifying properties which is great to rejuvenate sagging or tired-looking skin and can even help reduce blemishes.
Lemon essential oil is also known to be quite calming, making this Meyer lemon bath fizzies recipe perfect for anyone needing to de-stress after a long day.
There are many molds available online that you could use for your DIY bath bombs. The one I’m using is this simple silicone ice cube tray/mold available on Amazon. It works really well with this bath fizzies recipe!

DIY Meyer lemon bath fizzies recipe
Tip: after zesting your lemon, place the zest in the oven at about 350 degrees for a few minutes to dry it out. You’ll be able to tell as soon as it is ready, you’ll be able to smell it and the tiny pieces will be slightly darker, more intense in color and curl up a little bit. Drying the lemon zest will pull the moisture out and make sure it both holds up longer while you store the bath bombs and that the moisture doesn’t interfere with the drying processes of the other ingredients.
1. Mix the baking soda and citric acid together really well, I even tossed it into the food processor to make sure they were fully combined. That powdered the citric acid, giving the mixture a smooth texture.
2. Add in a few drops of the lemon essential oil, about half of the zest and then start to lightly spritz everything with the witch hazel. You’ll want to do this last step quickly to make sure you’re mixing before all of the witch hazel bubbles away (it will have a similar reaction to vinegar and baking soda). I used my hands to mix so I could feel the consistency, you’re looking for slightly cool and a pinch damp, just wet enough that you cans squeeze some in your hand and it will hold the shape.
3. Once you hit that point press it into your molds. I used the super easy and nice silicone ice cube tray/mold shown above.
4. Use firm pressure to fill the molds. Let them air dry, in the tray, at room temp until they are solid. You can then easily pop them out and store in an air tight container until ready to enjoy.
