Baking has become one of my favorite hobbies because of the delicious baked goods that I can make. Even before I got started baking, I have already been experimenting with the oven toaster by making a small batch of cookies. When I bought an oven, that’s when I had the chance to try out different recipes that I have dreamed of making.
Soak for 15 – 20 minutes and make sure to grab any clumps of baking soda gathered at the bottom of the tub, rubbing it into your armpits, hands, feet, chest or back.
For an easy, at-home mouth wash, just put a teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of water. Swish, spit, and any trace of that morning breath will be gone. It neutralizes odor versus just covering it up, so you can be worry free all day. When brushing your teeth, dip your toothpaste in some baking soda for a little more oomph in your cleaning power. Feeling even more inspired by the power of baking soda? Make your own toothpaste with a paste mixture of baking soda and 3% hydrogen peroxide for extra pearly whites.
After the 25 minutes are up, your hands will be a little pruney – this is totally normal. Just dry them off with a towel. Don’t wash them off with soap and water if possible. You want to retain the residue of baking soda on your skin. Some people say they have a light powerdy look to the skin after drying them off. The more residue of the solution, the better your results will be.
Then pre-measure all your ingredients. You don’t want to incorrectly measure or leave an ingredient out while you are putting everything together. Your goal is to have a great tasting product.
For this recipe, you will need 2 tablespoons of ground oatmeal, 1 tablespoon of baking soda, 1 teaspoon of water, and a small bowl. Simply mix all ingredients in a bowl until texture is smooth. You can also use a food processor if you want a finer texture. Apply the mask on the face and wait for 10 minutes. Rinse it off with warm water.
What is exactly the purpose of baking soda being listed as a common bath salt ingredient? Well, this is something that you will particularly enjoy: the fizz factor. Baking soda mixed with homemade bath salts in the bathwater lead to fizzy water. Baking soda adds a nice fizzy effect to the salts as they are used in the nice hot bath. And, to me, fizzy equates to tingly.
