With Easter quickly approaching, I’m trying to come up with fun gift ideas for my friends and family. Now, the kids are easy. Give them some candy and they are set! But what about my female friends and my mom? I’ve been looking for the perfect gift for them and sometimes when you can’t find something just right, you have to get crafty and make it!
What You Will Need:
1 Cup of Baking Soda
1/2 Cup Cream of Tartar
1/2 Cup of Corn Starch
2 Tablespoons of Epsom Salt
2 Tablespoons of Coconut Oil
5 Teaspoons of Water
3 Drops of the Essential Oil of your Choice
Empty Plastic Easter Eggs
How to Make It:
Use a large bowl add your baking soda, cream of tartar, corn starch and epson salt. Sift it together gently and then add in the coconut oil into the dry ingredients, mixing well until the mixture becomes sandy with an oil feel.
One teaspoon at a time, begin to add water to the dry ingredients, stirring it in immediately with a large spoon. Continue to add the liquid until your mixture resembles damp sand. Remember, your mixture should still be partially dry, but when you squeeze a handful together it could form a ball.
Next, add your food coloring and your essential oils, mixing them into the liquid ingredients. If you’re making several colors separate mixture into 3 or more bowls and add food coloring in each bowl as you desire.
Once the mixture is the color you want it to be, take a small amount and press it firmly into each side of the easter egg mold.
Allow your bath bombs to dry for a 24 hours or more. Then gently remove them from the Easter egg molds and place them on a flat surface for another 4 hours.
To gift, place your bath bombs in a basket or container with a little faux grass and give them to friends and family!
Remember to store any bath bombs in an airtight container until you are ready to use them and above all, enjoy!
