Super Fun Easter Egg Bath Bombs!
Ingredients (Will make 6 large bath bombs)
- 8 oz. Baking soda
- 4 oz. Epsom salt
- 4 oz. Cornstarch
- 4 oz. Citric acid
- 3 teaspoons water
- 2 teaspoons essential oil or fragrance oil for soaps, etc.
- 2-5 drops food coloring
- Larger plastic Easter eggs or silicone/plastic mold
- Confetti sprinkles (optional)
- In a large bowl, combine the Epsom salt, cornstarch, baking soda and citric acid. Stir the ingredients together using a whisk.
- In a separate small bowl, mix together your wet ingredients: water, fragrance/essential oil and food coloring.
- Pour your wet ingredients into the bowl with your dry ingredients and whisk together.
- The mixture will start to clump a little. Use your fingers to ball up a bit of the mixture to see if it is starting to stick together a bit. If not, you can add a little more water, but be careful. ONLY add a very little at a time or you will ruin the entire mixture.
- Take one of your eggs and put a little of the confetti sprinkles in one side or both.
- Then start tightly packing the bath bomb powder into both sides of the egg. Make sure there aren’t any air pockets – just a small hole is enough to make your bath bomb crumble so really pack the mixture in tightly.
- Then push the 2 sides of the egg together and let the egg sit on a towel covered with waxed paper for at least 15 minutes.
- After 15 minutes carefully pry open the egg to see if the mixture has formed to the mold. If it has, it will look the picture below .
- The eggs need to dry completely overnight before you try and use them or package them up as gifts.
