Peeps Bunny Bath Bombs Recipe Preparation Before Creation

Before starting this recipe you will want to cover all your bases. So, make sure that you have both witch hazel and rubbing alcohol readily available with each in its own spray bottle. Also, be sure that you have all your ingredients ready and your work space is free of other objects or grime. Finally, be cautious of you surrounding climate and weather. This recipe, like other bath bombs, will not work as well in humid places.

Peeps Bunny Bath Bombs Recipe Setting up for the Different Colors

First of all, you will need to have four small mixing bowls ready to use. Since you will have four different colors, you will need to keep these colors separated from one another during their creation. Throughout this process, each bowl will basically have the same ingredients added. However, the single difference will be that each bowl will receive a different color when the time comes. So, now that we are clear in the process, let’s begin!

Second, we are going to mix the baking soda and the citric acid together in each bowl. So, take your scale, one of your four small mixing bowls, and tare the scale to remove the weight of the bowl. Now, weigh 130 grams of baking soda and 65 grams of citric acid the single small mixing bowl. Repeat this with the remaining three bowls. Then, mix each individual bowl with your hands to thoroughly blend each mixture. Be sure that you remove any clumps in your bowls.

Next, we are going to add the Grapeseed Oil and Fragrance Oil to the bowls. Take one of your four small mixing bowls and tare it on the scale. Next, add 7 grams of the Grapeseed Oil and 4 grams of the Honey Almond Fragrance Oil. You will repeat this step with your remaining three bowls. Then mix each of the four bowls thoroughly with your hands. While it can be tiring to mix four separate bowls so many times, know that it is important to do well to create a bath bomb that works well and holds its form.

Now, we are going to create a different color in each of the four small mixing bowls. Take one of the bowls and add ten drops of the Neon Pink FUN Soap Colorant. Grab your second bowl and put in ten drops of the Neon Yellow FUN Soap Colorant. In your next bowl you will need to put in ten drops of the Neon Blue FUN Soap Colorant. Your final bowl will have ten drops of the Deep Purple FUN Soap Colorant. Finally, you will need to mix each one with your hands until the mixture is an even color with no clumps of bright streaks.

Then, immediately press the mixture into the cavities of the bunny mold. After this is done, you will repeat this step with the remaining three colored mixtures. This should provide you with eight peeps bunny bath bombs with two in each color that you created.

Directions:

First, you’ll want to start by measuring and weighing out 120 grams of Hemp Oil Melt and Pour Soap into each bowl. Each bowl will become a different layer for your soap. Then take your first bowl and begin to melt down the soap in the microwave until it is fully melted. When it is melted, add 12 drops of Neon Blue FUN Soap Colorant, 6 grams of Best Friends Fragrance Oil, and 6 grams of Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. Mix it together very thoroughly. Once it is fully mixed, pour your soap into your molds about ¼ of the way full, leaving enough room for the other colors.

Once the blue layer has sat and hardened, put your second bowl of soap into the microwave and completely melt it down. Once it is melted, add 15 drops of Ultramarine Violet FUN Soap Colorant, 6 grams of fragrance, and 6 grams of stabilizer. Mix together thoroughly. Before you pour in the purple layer, make sure to once again spray the blue layer with alcohol so the layers will successfully adhere to each other. Then carefully pour the purple on top of the blue, filling the mold another ¼ full. Spray this layer with alcohol to defeat the air bubbles and let it sit.

Once that layer has sat, repeat the same process for the next two layers! Don’t forget to spray each layer before adding the next so that they will adhere to each other! And also make sure to remember to let each layer sit and harden before adding the next! Once you have finished your last layer, make sure to let the soap sit in the mold, giving it time to harden.
