Easter Egg Bath Bombs Materials:
● 2 cups Baking soda
● 1 cup Citric acid
● 20 drops Rose essential oil
● 20 drops Geranium essential oil
● 1 tbsp. Fractionated coconut oil
● Mica powder coloring in various Easter colors
● Plastic easter eggs
- Begin by adding 1 cup of citric acid to a mixing bowl that contains 2 cups of baking
soda. Stir the dry mixture well until combined.
- In a small mixing bowl, pour in 1 tablespoon of fractionated coconut oil.
- Add 20 drops of rose essential oil to the small mixing bowl.
- Pour in 20 drops of geranium essential oil to the bowl of wet ingredients. Stir the wet
- Slowly incorporate the wet ingredients into the large mixing bowl with the dry
ingredients. Stir continuously, and be sure not to pour the wet ingredients too quickly,
or you risk setting off the chemical reaction of the bath bombs too soon.
- When you are finished combining the mixture, you should be able to squeeze a small
amount into your hand, and have it retain its shape a little. If it is too wet, add a bit
more baking soda. If it is too dry, and does not retain its shape, lightly mist the
mixture with one spray of water from a bottle, at a time, until you reach the right
- Separate the bath bomb mixture into small bowls, and add a little bit of mica powder
coloring to each bowl. Use a different color in each of the bowls, and mix well until
you get the shade you desire.
- Cover the bowls with plastic wrap or tin foil when you are not actively working with
them, to keep them from drying out.
- Once you have all of your bath bomb mixtures colored, wipe down the inside of
several plastic Easter eggs with some coconut oil. This will help release your bath
bombs from the egg molds when they are dry.
- Begin layering the colors into each side of the plastic Easter egg. Push down firmly to
pack the mixture into the egg tightly. When both sides are full, gently push both sides
together until the egg is completely closed.
- Place the eggs in a cool place to dry for at least an hour before you try to remove
them from the molds. Do not place them into a freezer or fridge, as that will cause
them to sweat and not dry.
- Once they have been sitting for at least an hour, slowly open the plastic Easter eggs
and slide the formed bath bomb out of them. Place the bath bombs on a plate, and
allow them to dry completely overnight before using.
