Here is a fun and easy tutorial on how to create naturally colored Easter egg bath bombs just in time for Easter weekend! These DIY bath bomb/fizzy’s would make a great gift for friends, family, or as a treat for yourself!
When I first created these, I tried using plastic Easter egg shells as a mold. Well, lets just say it failed miserably. Below is a picture of how well they turned out!
I knew after that ‘fail’ that I wanted to create a simpler process but something that was still cute. My blog is all about Real. Simple. Life. and that project was far from it!
Reconfiguring, I came up with a new and totally easy way to make these into cute Easter egg shapes.
Check out the recipe below on how I used my Easy Natural Food Dyes to create a cute and colorful bath bomb!
- 1 cup Baking Soda
- 1/2 cup Citric Acid
- 1/2 cup Corn Starch
- 2 tsp Witch Hazel (or water if you don’t have WH)
- 2 Tbsp Melted Coconut Oil
- 1 1/2 tsp Essential Oils (I used a mixture of lavender and tea tree)
- Natural Food Dye/Coloring (or traditional food coloring) ( I used pink, purple, green, and yellow)
- Silicone Easter Mold
- Small Glass Bowls for Mixing Colors
- Metal Spoon/Disposable Spoon
- Large Ceramic/Glass Bowl
- Medium Ceramic/Glass Bowl
- Mix baking soda, citric acid, and corn starch in large ceramic/glass mixing bowl.
- Next mix witch hazel, melted coconut oil, and essential oils in medium ceramic/glass bowl.
- Combine wet and dry ingredients until slightly moist. You should be able to see the mixture start to slightly clump together.
- Next, decide how many colors you would like to use then divide mixture evenly into small ceramic/glass bowls.
- Slowly add in a few drops of color at a time making sure you do not over wet the mixture. You will probably only need about 5 or so drops per mixture.
- Once the colors are mixed, press into molds.
- Let dry overnight before un-molding.
- Store in a dry place!
- The key to these is to make sure you have enough moisture in them to pack the mixture together without being too wet. They will start fizzing and expanding!
- If you use traditional food coloring you may have to spritz water into the mixture since they will not have as much liquid as the natural dyes.
- Make sure to use glass or ceramic bowls when mixing as plastic will hold onto the essential oil smells and would not be safe to use for food afterwards.
- Do not use this mold for food after this project! It will still smell of essential oils!
