DIY Bunny Easter Bath Bombs – DIY Bath Bombs Perfect for Easter!
When making these bath bombs, pay attention to the fact that there are two varying sets of ingredients – dry and wet!
1 pound baking soda
½ pound citric acid, fine grain
½ pound Epson salt, fine grain
.5 ounce kaolin clay
1-ounce Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate (SLSA)
¼ to ½ teaspoon micas – in your preferred colour
1-ounce sweet almond oil
1-ounce essential oil of choice (I used equal parts peppermint, eucalyptus and rosemary for the birds’ nests and equal parts lavender and magnolia (this is a harder one to find) for the bunnies)
.5 ounce Poly 80 (for micas)
¼ to 1 ounce of alcohol
How to Make DIY Fizzy Bath Bombs
Measure out the dry ingredients in a container.
Mix the ingredients well.
Combine the essential oil, poly 80 and sweet almond oil in a glass container and stir to combine.
Now pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients and mix well.
Add the alcohol to the mixture ¼ ounce at a time and mix well until the mixture looks like wet sand.
Grab a handful of the mix and squeeze it together to make a ball shape.
Hold the ball above the bowl and drop the ball into the bowl. If it stays together, the mixture is ready to press into the moulds and if not, add a little bit more alcohol until the mixture holds together.
When the mixture is ready, press it into the mould making sure to use enough bath bomb mixture to fill the mould, but do not overfill it.
If you are using a flat shape, just press it in. If you are using a rounded shape, be sure to add a little extra to the centre of the mould. That way, when you press the mould together both sides will adhere to one another.
Allow the bath bombs to dry overnight in the mould. Once dry, remove one side of the mould, but leave the other side of the bath bomb in the mould.
Set this aside and let it dry for two to three days, then remove it from the mould .alt=”Easter bath bombs” width=”3024″ height=”4032″>
