Spring is a time of renewal! Few things can make you feel as fresh and renewed as a relaxing and luxurious bath. These colorful bath bombs are full of therapeutic ingredients that will make you feel like new! Their fun Easter egg shape will get your kids excited about taking a bath too!
[recipe title=”Easter Egg Bath Bomb” time=”15 minutes active; 3 hours inactive” difficulty=”Moderate”]
- 8 oz. baking soda
- 4 oz. epsom salt
- 4 oz. cornstarch
- 4 oz. citric acid
- 3 tsp. water
- 1/2 tsp. of your favorite essential oil (we used lavender!)
- 2-5 drops food coloring of your choice
- plastic Easter eggs or silicone/plastic mold
- confetti sprinkles
In a large bowl, combine the Epsom salt, cornstarch, baking soda and citric acid.
Whisk dry ingredients together.
In a small bowl, mix the wet ingredients: water, essential oil and food coloring.
Combine wet and dry ingredients and whisk together.
The mixture will begin to clump. Ball it up in your hand to get it to stick. Only add a tiny bit of water if you have to! (Too much will make the mixture start to foam and it will not stay in the molds.)
Take a plastic egg and coat the inside with coconut oil. Add confetti sprinkles in one side.
Pack the mixture tightly into both sides of the egg. Make sure there are not air pockets or the egg shape will crumble upon removal.
- Close the egg and let it sit covered by a towel for 15 minutes.
Carefully pry open the egg to check if it is shaping to the mold. Let them dry completely before use.
These look lovely packaged up as an Easter gift!
