Trying to figure out what to put in a grown-up Easter basket? Want to stun your girlfriend, wife, sister or mom with something lovely for the holiday? Need a great hostess gift for the Easter dinner you’re attending? Or just plain like to do funky things with your beauty products? Well how about this fun and funky Easter Egg Bath Bomb?! So easy to make and takes no time at all to put together. Like the Lush Copycat Lavender Bath Bombs I posted last week, these are sure to please anyone who loves a wonderful and relaxing bath.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup cream of tartar
1/2 cup corn starch
2 tablespoons Epsom salt
2 tablespoons coconut oil ( oil NOT cream )
5 teaspoons water
3 drops essential oil ( found at Michaels or online )
Use a large bowl, add baking soda, cream of tartar, corn starch and Epsomm salt. Add in the coconut oil into the dry ingredients admix well, until the mixture becomes sandy with an oil feel.
One teaspoon at a time, begin to add water to the dry ingredients, stirring it in immediately with a large spoon. Continue to add the liquid until your mixture resembles damp sand. It should still be partially dry, but when you squeeze a handful together it could form a ball.
Add food coloring and your essential oils, by mixing them into the liquid ingredients. If making several colors separate mix into 3 or more bowls and and food coloring in each bowl as you desire.
When the mixture is the color you want, take a small amount and press it firmly into each side of the Easter egg mold. You can buy plastic Easter eggs pretty much anywhere.
Allow to dry for a 24 hours or more. Gently remove from the easter molds and place on a flat surface for another 4 hours. Then store in an airtight container until ready to use.
These truly do make epic gifts and are such a creative way of displaying your creativity. Enjoy!
