Ingredients- Makes about 4-5 Bath Bombs
1 Cup Baking Soda
1/2 Cup Citric Acid
1 tbsp Milk Powder
1 tbsp Epsom Salt (Optional)
2 tbsp Oil (Olive, Almond, Coconut)
7-10 drops of skin-safe Essential Oil (Lavender, Rose or even Cotton Candy)
1/2 tbsp of Water
4-5 Egg Toys/Molds
Some disposable cups
1-2 tbsp any Oil
- In a bowl, mix together baking soda, citric acid, milk powder and epsom salt (All your dry ingredients). Whisk gently. Make sure to mix well so that all the ingredients are blended well together.
- In a separate bowl, mix 2 tbsp of oil (make sure it’s melted if using coconut), 6-7 drops of essential oil and 1/2 tbsp of water (5-6 drops). Your wet mix is ready.
- Using a spoon put a LITTLE AMOUNT of wet mix in your dry mixture. It would slightly activate your mixture but don’t worry. Gently mix all the ingredients with your hands. Put another small amount of liquid in the mixture and again mix gently. Keep repeating the process until you get the right consistency. Your mixture should form clumps when pressed gently. That’s when you know it’s time to fill the molds.
- Fill your egg molds (don’t pack too tight) and close the mold firmly making sure that everything stays tight. For additional fun you can also put a toy inside.
- Let the bath bombs dry, for about 1-2 hours, before attempting to take them out of the molds. To help loosen them, tap on the mold a bit with a metal spoon. Let them air dry for 48 hours.
If you want to make it more fun, let your kids paint them. To prepare the paint, in a separate bowl(s), put 1/4 tbsp of oil and add a colorant to it. You can prepare 2-3 types of different colorants if you want to make colorful bath bombs.
(I made red, yellow, orange, and blue) and let your kids color these eggies.
