Materials + Tools

  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 4 large bowls
  • witch hazel
  • spray bottle
  • whisk
  • spoon
  • fork

Mix Ingredients + Add Oil

Mix all dry ingredients together in a large bowl (Image 1). Use a whisk to avoid any clumps (Image 2). Next, measure 2 tablespoons of fractionated coconut oil. Tip: Add the oil very slowly to avoid a reaction. While stirring the dry mixture with the whisk, add a little bit of the oil to the bowl at a time (Image 3). Continue to add oil while whisking until fully incorporated.

Divide Mix + Add Color

Divide the mixture into three new bowls; add 1/2 cup of the mixture to each. Next, add 3-4 drops of plant-based food coloring into the first bowl and stir well with a fork (Image 1). Add more food coloring to achieve a darker color. Repeat steps for the remaining bowls. Then, add 6-7 drops of essential oil into each bowl (Image 2). Note: Remember that essential oils are extremely concentrated and that some oils can be more harsh on skin than others. Always use fewer than 10 drops per oil and test any product you create for sensitivities. Stir in essential oils with a fork and set aside.

Spritz + Fill

Next, take an empty spray bottle and fill it with a few inches of witch hazel. Spritz 2-3 sprays of the liquid into the first bowl mixture and stir together with a spoon (Image 1). Add more witch hazel as needed so the mixture mimics wet sand. Tip: Test the consistency of the mixture by putting a little in the palm of your hand and making a fist. If the mixture holds its shape and sticks together, it’s ready. Move to the next bowl and repeat above steps. When all the colors are ready, open up the plastic eggs and use a spoon to tightly fill and pack each half with the mixture (Image 2). Use different colors of the mixture to create a layered look. Once filled, take both halves and put them back together. Place the eggs in an egg carton and let them sit overnight.

Open + Enjoy

Remove bath bombs from the plastic eggs by loosely twisting them open (Image 1). Then nestle a few of these inside a colorful Easter basket or share a dozen in a cute, yarn-wrapped egg carton (Image 2).
