Bath therapy has been around since ancient times. Also used for healing, rejuvenating, and cleansing rituals at times.
Did you know that taking Carbon Dioxide (CO₂) baths can dramatically reduce the signs of aging? Ahhh…! I got your attention. Well, let me explain. Bicarbonate (HCO3) mixed with Citric Acid will produce CO₂ gas. Bath bombs can also be known as CO₂ bath products. These baths will change your PH levels to less acidic and more alkaline increasing oxygen levels. Carbon Dioxide protects against tissue damage. Increase levels of CO₂ allow more oxygen to be released into the blood vessels increasing oxygen into the skin restoring the skin to a natural state by activating cell metabolism. CO₂ will revitalize, rejuvenate, brighten, and firm the skin making radiant in addition to soothing the skin. CO₂ is the gas that we exhale as waste when we brethe, the same gas that plants need to live. We all need CO₂ to live.
The adsorption of CO₂ gas through the skin will expand the blood vessels increasing blood flow as a result helping poor circulation also serving as a muscle relaxer. CO₂ water bathing helps reduce pulse and high blood pressure, bed sores, gangrene, foot fungus, eczema, and fatigue just to name a few benefits.
These fizzy balls and salts are designed to detox, exfoliate, moisturize, and smooth the skin. It Epson salt, essential oils, and botanical content helps as a muscle relaxer releasing aches and pain as well as stress. The natural oils are designed as an aromatherapy agent with many additional medicinal benefits. The mineral salt content peels aged layers of the skin removing dead cells. For better results the use of a loofah is recommended to properly remove dead skin. CO₂ comes from living energy and it goes back into creating energy.
Just be mindful that too much or too little of anything is not good. CO₂ is ok when found in normal levels in the blood. Increase or lower levels of CO₂ can result in medical complications. Lower than normal levels can hinder the ability to produce oxygen. Please consult your doctors if you want your bicarbonate blood levels to be assessed.

Treat yourself today, make it a spa day!!
- 1 cup of baking soda
- ½ cup of citric acid
- ½ cup of corn starch
- ½ cup of Epson salt (you can substitute for ¼ cup of mineral salt and ¼ of Epson salt)
- 2 tbsp. of carrier oil coconut oil
- 2 drop of natural food coloring (for a vegan friendly recipe you can use fruits or veggies as a natural colorant like beats, strawberries, or greens)
- 6 drops of essential oils (100% natural your choice, lavender, rosemary, peppermint etc.)
- 2 drops of vitamin E (optional natural preservative)
- ½ tbsp. of water to moist
Mix all dry ingredients. In a separate container mix all wet ingredients including the food coloring. Then add all the wet ingredients to dry mixture and mix well. Make sure you have the color desired for a more intense color just add more food coloring. Please note if made a natural food coloring that is water base, it’ll active the citric acid if you add too much water. A half of table spoon of water/coloring should be sufficient to damp the mixture; you don’t want to cause a fizzy relation. If the mixture is too moist is will activate and continue to expand. Get any plastic or silicon mold and compact the mixture firmly and leave it to dry. I recommend drying for 24 hrs. for easier removal.
