DIY: Easter Egg Bath Bombs

The other day I made these bath bombs and they actually turned out pretty well! 


What you'll need:
1/2 cup Baking Soda
3 teaspoons Lemon Juice
1/4 cup Sea Salt
1/2 teaspoon Peppermint Oil 
2 teaspoons Coconut Oil


Step 1: Combine the baking soda and sea salt in a large bowl and whisk together. 



Step 2: In a separate bowl combine the lemon juice, peppermint oil, and coconut oil. 





Step 3: Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. There may be some fizzing during this step. It's normal. 

  
It should look kind of like this. If it feels too dry then add some water. Squeeze some together and if it hold its shape, then that's perfect!

Step 4: Get any shape container for molds. I used a cake pop container, but you can use whatever you have. Put the mixture into the molds, pushing down so it's nice and tight. I filled six. 



A rare sighting of me in my glasses.

Step 5: Let dry in the molds for 2 hours. 
Pop them out and set on a towel. Let dry over night.


Step 6: Spread coconut oil on top of one half, then set the other half on top to make an egg bath bomb. 




You're done! 

These smelled so good and made my skin so soft. 
The only problem I had was that they didn't fizz in the bath but disintegrated in the water, which was fine with me. 

If you try this take a pic and tag me on instagram or twitter! I'd love to see it! You can find me @ChriSimonton
