DIY Bath Bombs with colored epsom salt for easter

DIY Bath Bombs with colored epsom salt for easter

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:

    1/2 cup baking soda – Get it here
    1/4 cup citric acid – Get it here
    1/4 cup corn starch or arrowroot powder – Get it here

    1 tbsp. coconut oil – Get it here
    1 tbsp. witch hazel or water in a spraying bottle – Get it here

    1/2 cup coarse epsom salt (or sea salt) – Get it here
    different colors of soap or food coloring – Get it here

    Plastic easter eggs – Get it here

This recipe makes 2 to 3 easter eggs depending on the size of your molds.

This is an AMAZING Easter Egg Craft Idea! How To make your own DIY Bath Bombs with colored epsom salt from plastic eggs! Tutorial by The Makeup Dummy

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!

Great article, thanks for sharing! You can get good quality molds online, much cheaper than hobby lobby or michaels, if you shop around. As a long time bath bomb DIYer, we've found that stainless steel molds outperform metal or plastic ones - they keep the shape of the bath bomb round, don't stick to the molds, and the molds don't rust/break/dent. I personally use the ones below from Amazon - they're running a promotion right now too, it looks like. Happy fizzing!
