Easter egg bath bombs are easy to make and make wonderful homemade gifts.
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1/2 cup citric acid
- 1/3 cup corn starch
- 1/2 cup Epsom salts
- 1 tbs almond oil
- 1 tsp water
- 1/2 tsp essential oils I used 1/4 tsp lavender & 1/4 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.
