How To Make Easy Easter Egg Bath Bombs.

Published: 28th March 2018

If you think your kids might be getting more than enough chocolate over the Easter break, giving them a bag full of Easter egg bath bombs is a great alternative. Or you could make them together for a fun long weekend activity. 

They’re incredibly easy to make and you can buy those plastic Easter egg containers to make sure the shape is perfectly 'egg-shaped'!

These Easter egg bath bombs are a fun way to celebrate Easter; they also make great gifts and, let’s face it, you don’t have to be a kid to enjoy a bath bomb! This recipe is super easy and uses a mixture of household items such as bicarbonate soda and citric acid which sets off that fun ‘fizz’ in the bathtub.

Easy Easter Egg Bath Bombs Recipe:

Ingredients you will need:

  • Plastic Easter egg moulds
  • 2 cups bicarbonate soda
  • 1 cup citric acid powder
  • 1/4 cup coconut or almond oil (you can also use vegetable oil)
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup Epsom salts
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp of your favourite essential oils (you could use orange & lavender)
  • Food colouring
  • Glitter (optional)


  1. Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Mix the coconut oil and essential oils together in a separate small bowl. Tip - we found using soft coconut oil much easier to work with. 
  3. Add the oil mixture to the dry ingredients and mix together. Note - the mixture should be a dry crumbly texture, there is no need to add more liquid.
  4. Divide into 4-5 bowls (depending on how many colours you are making) and cover them with cling wrap – this is essential as the mixture can get dry quickly. 
  5. Next, add 6-10 drops of colouring and mix – you might find it’s easier to mix with your hands – plus if you have ‘little helpers’ they’d find this part fun to do with you!
  6. Then get your plastic egg moulds, add glitter if you want to and then use alternate layers of the coloured mixture in the mould before gently pressing the mixture in.
  7. Once you’ve added a final layer of your chosen colour, press the mould together and leave the mixture in there for about an hour.
  8. Remove the eggs from the mould and place on paper towels and leave for a couple of hours to dry.

Once dry, run a bath and watch your colourful DIY Easter egg bath bombs fizz away.

Enjoy and Happy Easter!
