These DIY Easter Bath Bombs are the perfect adult Easter craft! Raid the kiddos Easter baskets for the perfect mold for this super easy beauty craft!
DIY Beauty crafting is easily one of my favorites. Not only is it a lot of fun, but the end product is also something that can always, always be used. It’s kind of like cooking as a hobby. Food will always get eaten around here 🙂 and soap will always get sudsed up and used around here, too. So with Easter right around the corner and some hinged plastic Easter eggs just sitting around, it seemed like the most perfect time to make some Easter Egg bath bombs!
Whether you’re new to beauty crafting or if you have lots and lots of these types of projects under your belt, making your own bath bombs is both easy and rewarding. Who doesn’t like to soak and luxuriate in a fizzy and fantastic smelling bath every now and again? Want to see just how easy Easter egg bath bombs are to make?
Let’s make some Easter Egg Bath Bombs that are the BOMB! (sorry, had to)
For this project you will need:
- 2 ounces of Epsom salts
- 4 ounces of baking soda
- 2 ounces of cornstarch
- 2 ounces of citric acid
- 1 tablespoon of sweet almond oil
- 1 drop soap colorant
- fragrance oil
- 1.5 tablespoons of nonpareils
- hinged plastic Easter eggs
Mix Epsom salts, baking soda, cornstarch, and citric acid together with a whisk, making sure there are no clumps.
Pour sweet almond oil, soap colorant and fragrance oil together in a small bowl or jar and stir or shake to well incorporated.
Very slowly add the liquid mixture to the dry whisking together constantly. If your mixture begins to fizz, you’re adding the liquid too quickly and your bath bombs will not dissolve properly when used. Once all of the liquid is in, mix until the color is consistent.
Add the sprinkles and stir until somewhat evenly distributed.
Fill the molds with the mixture, firmly stuffing each side of the hinged plastic egg until well packed and very full. Secure both parts of the egg together and allow to sit at least an hour, but overnight is best.
Remove Easter egg bath bombs from their molds carefully. If you’re having a difficult time, use a dull butterknife pushed in the mold’s crack, twisting slightly to help pry the two pieces apart. Once removed, place in an airtight container or individual bags.
