Plastic Easter egg
How to make your own DIY Easter Bath Bombs
Mix together the baking soda, citric, acid and cornstarch.
Mix in a few drops of essential oil to your melted coconut oil.
Slow mix in a small amount of your coconut oil at a time so the mixture doesn’t fizz.
Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup and divide the bath bomb mixture into 3 bowls.
Add a few drops of each color colorant to each bowl, making each bowl a different color.
Wear plastic gloves and mix each bowl with your finger tips.
Open the eggs face and start filling with a little of each color.
Press the eggs together and carefully remove the egg bath bomb.
Set aside to dry overnight.
* Do not eat even though they are colorful and smelly.
