It has been a while since I have made some homemade bath bombs and I have been itching to get out my supplies and make some. Since Easter is this weekend I thought a great gift idea to put in my children’s baskets would be some Easter Egg Bath Bombs from mom!
Since I have more than enough plastic Easter eggs around my house I thought I would I would put some of them to use for something fun. I have a variety of scents, essential oils and colors which means I can get creative by mixing colors and scents to create bath bombs that smell wonderful!
Now I have seen some multi-colored bath bombs that look really neat. The ones I made for my kids are just one singe color (the easiest to make) but you could make multiple batches of the bath bomb mixture in different colors to make multi-colored eggs if you want to! Next time I am going to have my kids help so making different batches at the same time will be easier.
DIY Easter Egg Bath Bombs
Supplies You Will Need:
- 3 tbs epsom salt or course sea salt
- 1/2 cup baking soda
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 1/4 cup citric acid
- 1 tbs coconut oil (in liquid form)
- liquid food coloring or soap coloring
- essential oil or essential oils
- spray bottle with witch hazel or water
- In a large bowl combine your dry ingredients (epsom salt, baking soda, citric acid). Using a whisk is recommended because it will help make sure your mixture is clump free.
- Add the liquid ingredients to your dry mixture, only a few drops at a time. Mix well with your hands.
- Next you will want to get out your spray bottle. You will want to spray a 1-2 squirts and mix well. You will want to keep doing this until your mixture holds together when squeezed without crumbling.
- Once you have reached the desired texture you will want to smoosh the mixture into the molds. You will want to leave your bath bombs in the molds for at least 24 hours.
- When they are dry, remove them from the molds and store in airtight container or bag. Use within 2 weeks for best results.
For even more fun with bath bombs, be sure to insert something inside! I used some of the Mini Malz Tiny Animal Figures in my bath bombs.
