3 DIY Easter Bath Bomb Recipes


Hey you! It's almost Easter--I know, seriously how fast has this year flown by? I celebrate Easter all the way. In addition to religious reasons, I enjoy seeing it all through my nieces and nephews eyes, AND it's Charlie's 5th birthday! I decorate too, and every year I do an Easter DIY on the blog. Today I'm sharing 3 DIY Easter Bath Bomb Recipes. These are so fun and easy to make, and I've got a new one for this year. I just made a batch and my house smells amazing. Let me know your favorites!


Easter Confetti Candy Bath Bombs


This is a fun twist on the regular bath bomb. Just add candy sprinkles!

You'll Need:
  • 1 c Epsom salt
  • 1/2 c citric acid (try Whole Foods or online)
  • 1/2 c cornstarch
  • 1/2 c baking soda
  • 1/2 c water
  • food coloring or soap colorant
  • essential oil (if desired. I totally cheated for this batch and used Epsom salts that were scented)
  • Easter candy sprinkles
  • plastic Christmas ball ornament (or look for ball baking molds online)
  • glass bowls

To Make:
  • Place ornaments on a sturdy surface. You can pour candy in the bottom (pictured below) or mix in later if you like (pictured above).
  • Add the dry ingredients and the food colorant and mix by hand until the mix is tinted. If doing more than one color, you'll need a bowl for each color. To make the bath bomb above, I added the sprinkles to the mix.
  • Once mixed, add a few drops of water. It will start to fizz. Quickly mix until the mix sticks together. Add a few water drops at a time. If it looks foamy, you've added too much water.
  • Press the mix into each ornament half until it is filled to the top. My disc went corrupt, so the pics are gone, but I actually layered colors of pink, yellow, and pink to mimic the color of the sprinkles.
  • Allow to dry for two to three hours and then carefully place the other half of the ornament on top of the other. 
  • Allow this to dry overnight or at least 8 hours. Carefully remove from the molds/ornaments. Drop in your bath when ready!
Do you like your sprinkles at the top and bottom? Or mixed in?


These are a cute egg shape (just use plastic eggs you probably already have) AND they have a surprise inside. This Pinterest-fave has been copied by many. Come see the original! Kids LOVE these and are great for those who are anti-candy.







These are feet fizzies--bath bombs for your feet. Give your feet a treat with these bath bombs that look like the familiar Easter candy. Can be used as a bath bomb as well.



Which one is your favorite?

  16. I think I pinned the Peep ones last year and never did make them. I'm ordering the mold online right now! My kids love bath bombs, but Lush is expensive. They can help me make these! Or maybe I'll put them in their Easter baskets. :)

  36. Charlie's 5th birthday, so sweet! I still have to buy some eggs, but chocolate ones :) For my family! You are so talented! I never did bath bombs and they look so sweet and good, such a nice idea! It must be very nice when they dissolve and then the ornaments or sprinkles come out! Good for kids and adults!
