I don't know about you but I think they are super cute! But every time I walk by the LUSH store in the mall I get a pounding headache. They do NOT use anything natural to scent those pretty balls of fizz. But I can create my own all-natural beauties.
The big plastic Easter eggs are a perfect mold to make affordable bath bombs. Or you can buy on Amazon. I'll put the link in the comments to the ones I use.
There are a few different kinds of recipes so scope out Pinterest if you don't have all the ingredients! My kids are getting these in their Easter basket. They love the foaming action in the tub and I like that I know what's in it. Plus you can Doctor them up with your oils!
• 1 cup of citric acid
• 2 cups of baking soda
• 1 cup cornstarch
• 1/2 cup Epsom salt
• 2-4 tablespoons water
• optional food coloring or mica powder, dried flowers, dried lavender, dried rose petals or chunky pink salt
20 drops essential oil of choice
In a bowl stir together the dry ingredients. Gently drizzle or spray the water into the mix while you gather it with your hand trying to form it into a clump. Try not to let it fizz very much. When you can just start to hold the mixture together it is done. Add any coloring and/or scent. Add dry flowers to the mold first. Then pack the powder mixture on top of it taking care to smash it down firmly. Let sit for a few minutes then remove from the mold and let it dry over night. You can also add your essential oils directly to each individual mold right before popping into the tub!
