Added: Sunday, January 25, 2009


2 cups baking soda
1 cup citric acid (found at pharmacy)
1 cup corn starch
8 Tbsp powdered sugar
1/4 tsp Borax (found in detergent section)

Essential oil of choice
1 1/2 Tbsp water
5 Tbsp of light oil (jojoba, sweet almond, olive, canola, sunflower)

Measure and sift together dry ingredients. Thoroughly mix wet ingredients.

In a medium bowl, add 1/2 cup dry ingredients. Drizzle oil mixture (less is best) over dry ingredients (start with 1 Tbsp) and blend with your hands. Try to start forming a ball. If its too dry (crumbles easily) add a bit more oil mixture. Continue molding the mixture until you can form a firm ball.

Place on parchment paper to dry. Be sure to check within 1-2 hours. If the ball has expanded, remold its shaping back down to original size. Allow to dry thoroughly (about 2 days).

Wrap, or package in decorative jar.
