Making some pretty Easter Egg Bath Bombs is easier than you might think. Standard plastic fillable Easter eggs that can be found at dollar stores are used as molds, and any ingredients you don’t already have on hand can be picked up at natural food stores such as Whole Foods or online.
These Easter bath bombs make a great gift or nice bath decoration for the spring/Easter season, that is usable.
How to Make Easter Egg Bath Bombs
Dry ingredients and most of the wet ingredients are mixed in one batch. Texture will be drier than pie dough, but mixture pressed against side of bowl with fork will form a clump.
Mixture is divided and color is added. Care must be used to keep the mixture covered with plastic wrap as it dries out quickly.
Add glitter if you wish, and layer the colored mixes. Press into each egg half, but do so gently or the egg may stick in the half, and split when unmolding.
After about an hour unmold and set out to dry further.
- 1 cup baking soda
- ½ cup citric acid
- ⅓ cup corn starch
- ½ cup Epsom salts
- 1 tbs almond oil
- 1 tsp water
- ½ tsp essential oils (I used ¼ tsp lavender & ¼ tsp orange)*
- food coloring
- glitter (optional)
- plastic eggs (used as molds)
- Mix together the dry ingredients well.
- Mix the almond oil, water and essential oils together in a small dish.
- Add the wet mixture to the dry, and mix very well.
- Divide into 5 bowls and cover each with plastic wrap immediately (mix dries out quick). One bowl at a time add 6-8 drops of food coloring and mix really well. Recover as soon as mixed. (purple was made with 5 drops red & 3 blue)
- Pull the plastic eggs apart, if you are using glitter sprinkle a little in. Alternate layers of colored mixture on each side of egg and press the mixture in gently. Make final layer of each side the same color. Top one side off even, and the other should be a little over filled. Press together and snap egg together.
- Leave the eggs in mold for about an hour, then carefully remove the plastic eggs. Tucking a small kitchen knife into the seam and running along it to separate is helpful.
- Gently place the egg bath bombs on a towel or paper towels and leave for a minimum of a few hours to dry.
- Drop 1 egg in a warm bath to use.
