If you love the popular bath bombs from Lush, you will love making your own Easter egg bath bombs.  Easter is a great time to make these fun and giftable bath bombs as they’re perfect basket fillers and great self-care gifts.  My daughter and I made these a few years ago and they turned out so well I thought I’d share the DIY again.  And you don’t have to limit these to Easter eggs.  You can use any type of mold which would be perfect for birthday gifts, bridal showers and more.

Ingredients and Supplies

  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup citric acid
  • 1/2 cup Epsom salts
  • 1 tsp. water
  • 2 tsp. essential oil
  • 3 tsp. oil (olive oil or coconut oil)
  • food coloring (any colors you want)
  • bowl
  • whisk
  • plastic Easter eggs and/or bath bomb mold

Step One

Place the dry ingredients in a bowl and then mix them all evenly with the whisk.

Step Two

In a separate container, mix the liquid ingredients together. Note that in this step, the essential oils, fragrances and colors are added. This is an important step!  Make sure to pick out lots of fragrance oils to try out here, as you can make many fabulous combinations for bath time.

Step Three

Slowly add the liquid mixture to the dry mix, one small spoon at a time.

Step Four

When well mixed, you simply pack this mixture into a bath bomb mold and pack tightly, then let it dry. Work quickly so as not to let the bath bomb mixture dry out.

Step Five

Remove your new bath bombs from the molds.  You can place them right into your Easter basket or wrap them up to gift.  You can add a sweet personalized Easter gift sticker like the one below when gifting to friends and family.  These also make great gifts during COVID as you can leave them on door steps as a special treat!

Enjoy!
