DIY Easter Egg Bath Bombs - Dry Ingredients

DIY Easter Egg Bath Bombs - Easter Egg Mould

A basic bath bomb recipe

Wet Ingredients

2 tsp water
4 tsp oil (olive, avocado, grape, coconut, Shea butter etc)
2 tsp essential oil

Dry Ingredients

1/2 cup citric acid
1 cup bicarbonate of soda
1/2 cup cornflour

Optional Extras

1/2 cup Epsom salt
Dried lavender, rose petals or any other dried flower of your choice
Food or soap colouring

Equipment

A big bowl
Measuring spoons
A small whisk
Moulds (be it round circular ones, silicone ice trays or even silicone baking trays)
Syringes or pipettes
A table spoon

Method

Dry Ingredients

Combine all the dry ingredients and whisk it gently so that you don’t kick up too much powder.

Wet Ingredients

In a separate container, mix all the wet ingredients well.
If you are using coconut oil or Shea butter, you’ll need to melt them first.

Keep in mind that if you use olive or avocado oil, it will turn your mixture yellow. Coconut oil won’t.
I’ve opted to use a combination of grapefruit and orange oil, which will also add to the overall yellow colour of the mixture.

Combine the Ingredients

Using a syringe or dropper, SLOWLY add the wet ingredients to the powder mixture and whisk it in FAST.

The liquid activates the fizzy reaction. The more fizz you make while mixing in the wet ingredients, the less your bath bomb will fizz in the bath. Patience is a necessity here.

The finished mix

The mixture is ready when little clumps start to form, but it should still be quite dry.

Add some food colouring

If you want to add colouring, now is the time to do it. Remember to add it slowly and sparingly because it will also cause the mixture to fizz.

I added a few drops of yellow to make the initial yellow colour a little brighter. I also placed a tiny bit of the mix into a seperate bowl and made it orange.

Place the mix into the mould

Place the mixture into your mould, taking care to compress it as much as you can. Squashing it all together is what will keep your bath bombs together once they have dried.

Let them dry out on their own for a full day before carefully removing them from their moulds.

Voilà!
