Making Bath Bombs/Bath Fizzies

Last night, very late, I was making bath bombs, aka, bath fizzies. I personally would rather call them bath fizzies than bath bombs, but they are the same thing. I put lemon oil in them so they smell really good. They are supposed to fizzle when you put them in your bath water. These should be about 2 ounces as the mold that I put them in holds 2 ounces per mold. They are made from mainly salt, but mine have jojoba oil and lemon oil in them as well. Making these would be a great science project in school.
