Natural DIY Recipe
- 1/2 cup Bicarb Soda

- 10-15 drops of Essential Oil
- 1-2 tablespoons of olive or cooking oil
- Measuring cups
- Ice cube tray
- Approx. 12 bombs
My bombs were not fizzy enough?
Creating the reaction between Bicarb & Citric Acid can often be a bit finicky. The results can often vary depending on the climate & unfortunately you may not get the volcanic fizz you would expect.
Are the other ways to release fragrance without making bombs?
An alternative is to simply scent the citric acid & add a teaspoon to the toilet after any nasties have been flushed.
Can I use this in the bath or shower?
Yes you can - but another option is to scent Epsom Salts which is more therapeutic.
Is this safe for septic tanks?
The ingredients are mild, safe & biodegradable which should not affect the bacteria in septic tanks like harsh chemicals can.
