I can remember when I first walked into Lush and how I wanted to buy everything! I loved the smells, the packaging, everything! Then I picked up a product and realized owning the contents of a Lush store was not going to be feasible with my budget. So then my goal became to make everything in the Lush store. My first project was lip scrub, and then I moved on to try to make bath bombs. That’s been a slow-going project with many fails if I’m being real. The good news about that is that I have tried things many times to perfect them before sharing with you. For this batch I decided to make bath bomb Easter eggs, they turned out so cute! Here’s out you can make your own:
DIY Bath Bomb Easter Eggs
Makes approximately 13 eggs
Supplies (affiliate links provided)
- Plastic Easter eggs
- 1 cup baking soda
- ½ cup citric acid
- ½ cup corn starch
- ½ cup epsom salt
- 2 tablespoons fractionated coconut oil
- Essential oils (see step #4 for quantity)
- Water in a spray bottle
- Food coloring
- Add all dry ingredients to a large bowl and whisk together.
- Very slowly add coconut oil to the dry mixture, whisking immediately. Be sure not to add any wet ingredients all at once or it will start to fizz like an alka-seltzer.
- Separate the mixture into however many colors and/or scents you would like to make.
- Mix essential oil and food coloring together and add a little bit at a time and mix well. If using pure essential oil, add just one drop to each bowl; otherwise use 3 – 4 drops. I love DoTerra oils, you will need very little if you use those. I used Serenity, Rosemary, Eucalyptus, Peppermint and Lavender oils.
- Spray mixture with 1 spritz of water at a time in order to mix in very quickly. Continue to spray until the mixture is the consistency wet sand.
- Fill the Easter eggs with the bath bomb mixture. Lightly pack the mixture into the eggs and then use the eggs as a scoop to overfill the eggs. This one is one I made by mixing the small amount of leftovers from all of the colors together.
- Press the 2 halves of the plastic easter egg together.
- Allow to dry for around 30 minutes, then carefully screw the top off of the egg.
- Try layering the colors for a fun multi-colored Easter egg bath bomb.
These would make such a fun Easter basket! They also look beautiful in a decorative egg holder.
