Easter is coming.
Are you DIY ready yet?
No holiday would be complete for me without a Bath Bomb recipe!
For the occasion I swapped my trusty plastic Christmas ornaments for plastic Easter ones.
This tutorial was obviously inspired by my DIY Bath Bombs with Epsom Salt. This time I used 1/2 cup of coarse salt and 5 different colors for a more dramatic effect. And I love them!
What I used:
Plastic easter eggs – Get it here
This recipe makes 2 to 3 easter eggs depending on the size of your molds.
Color the epsom salt
Divide 1/2 cup of epsom salt over several containers. I have 5 colors of soap coloring so I made 5 batches.
Add 1 or 2 drops of coloring to each batch. Stir the salt in each batch well to divide the coloring evenly. Set aside to let the salt fully soak up all of the dye.
Combine your dry ingredients
Combine the baking soda, citric acid and corn starch in a seperate bowl.
Add the wet ingredients
Add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil to the dry ingredients. I use coconut oil at room temperature so it’s quite solid. With a spoon I mix the oil with the dry ingredients as much as possible.
Next I pour about 1 tablespoon of witch hazel or water in a spraying bottle. Then I carefully spray the mixture and stir well. The mixture is ready when it starts to clump together.
Add the colored salt
Once the mixture is ready I added the colored salts to the bowl. Carefully mix all of the ingredients together with a spoon.
Fill your Eggs
Fill both sides of your platic egg. Use quite firm plastic eggs for this tutorial.
Press the mixture down firmly. Keep filling both sides until they’re overflowing.
Push both sides together until your mold is closed. Set aside to harden.
Leave the eggs to dry overnight and take them out of their mold the next morning.
Now you’re ready to celebrate Easter the DIY way!
