What I love about these is how the sprinkles in the middle truly do surprise you! At first you think you just have a cute one color Easter egg shaped bath bomb, and then as the egg fizzes away, you start to see the fun sprinkle colors!
Sprinkle Surprise Easter Egg Bath Bombs
2 oz Epsom salt
4 oz baking soda
2 oz corn starch
2 oz citric acid
1 tbsp coconut oil (liquified)
½ tbsp water
1 drop yellow soap colorant/yellow food coloring
Lilac fragrance oil
7+ small plastic Easter eggs
Small jar with lid or cello bags
1. Mix the dry ingredients first (Epsom salt, baking soda, cornstarch and citric acid), using the whisk. Mix well to ensure there are no clumps.
2. If your coconut oil is not in liquid form, melt it in the microwave for about 30 seconds.
3. Pour the wet ingredients (coconut oil, water, soap colorant, and fragrance oil into jar, secure the lid and shake well.
4. Very slowly add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture, about a few drops at a time, while whisking the entire time. If you’re not pouring slowly enough, the mixture will start to fizz and you don’t want that to happen, because then you will need to start over again with all new ingredients.
5. Once all of the liquid has been poured into the dry mixture, mix very well until the color is consistent.
6. Immediately fill the Easter eggs with the mixture, adding sprinkles on top of one filled side and filling the other side with more bath bomb mixture. Firmly stuff each side full.
7. Secure both parts of the plastic egg together and let set. I always give it about a day, just to be on the safe side.
8. Carefully release the bath bombs from eggs and put into an airtight container to keep, or individual cello bags to gift.
Enjoy your fun DIY Easter egg bath bombs!
