Easter Egg Fizzies

Thursday, February 27th, 2014

steps for making easter egg bath fizzesEaster is quickly approaching, and although typically Easter gifts exchanged between loved ones are filled with chocolates and sweets; sometimes you just want to think outside of the candy wrapper.  This is where the entertaining bath bomb can come into play!

Bath fizzies can be enjoyed by everyone young and old!  But, there is just something about them that amazes children.  This is most likely the fun fizzing action that occurs when the bath bombs hit the water.

One of the most unique aspects of bath bombs is that they can be scented, colored, and molded into any shape.  And, one of the best things about bath bombs is that they are a great project to make with your kids for a fun family activity.

If you are looking for a great spin on Easter basket gifts, using this recipe you can now make your very own Easter Egg fizzies.

Besides the ingredients that are needed to make the Easter egg fizzies (which can all be purchased at Natures Garden), you will also need (10) regular sized fillable Easter eggs, baking soda, and some witch hazel in a spray bottle.  If you do not have any leftover plastic eggs from last year, these eggs can be purchased almost anywhere including Walmart or even your local Dollar Store.  The witch hazel that is called for in this recipe is used to help get the crumbly consistency of the mixture as well as to adhere both sides of the Easter eggs together in the final steps.

Here is the rest of the ingredients and supplies that you will need to make this recipe:
Citric Acid
Bentonite Clay Powder
Arrowroot Powder
Castor Oil
Olive Oil- Pomace
For this project, any body safe fragrance oil will work.  We suggest: Jelly Bean Fragrance Oil to match the theme of Easter.
For the color of the Easter egg fizzes, any of the FUN Soap colorants will work.  For this project, we selected the colorants: Neon Blue, Neon Red, Neon Yellow, and Ultramarine Violet to achieve somewhat of a pastel color in the eggs.
Disposable Pipettes
Mixing Bowls (5)
Large Mixing Bowl
Spoon

Once you are ready to get started, here are the steps (pictures included):

Step 1: In your large mixing bowl, place 184 grams of citric acid, 265 grams of baking soda, 11 grams of bentonite clay, and 90 grams of arrowroot powder.  Thoroughly mix these ingredients.  If you have any clumps, break them up using your fingers and thumb.  Set this aside for now.

Step 2: Now, in a separate bowl, weigh out 26 grams of castor oil and 21 grams of olive oil.  Then, carefully pour this over your dry ingredients, mixing well with your hands.

Step 4:  Now, slowly spray the mixture with a few squirts of witch hazel.  Mix the mixture between each spritz.  Continue until the mixture is like crumbly dough in your hands.  Do not over spray.

Step 9: In the final bowl place 5 drops FUN Soap Colorant Ultramarine Violet.  Mix this thoroughly with your hands until all of the mixture is light purple.  Then, set it aside.

Step 10:  Now, count out 10 of your fillable Easter eggs.  If the eggs halves that you have are connected together by a small piece of plastic, break them apart now.

Step 11:  Each colored bowl of the mixture will fill (2.5) whole eggs.  To fill the eggs, press the mixture down firmly into each egg half.  Once both of the halves are completely filled, spritz each one with witch hazel.  Then,  close the egg.  Repeat this step until all eggs are filled and sealed together.

Step 12: Once all eggs are sealed, allow them to harden overnight.

Step 13: When the eggs are ready, using a spoon gently tap several times on the outside of the oblong egg half.  This will help release the bath fizzy from the mold.

Step 14:  Carefully slide the plastic egg (oblong side) off first.  Then, slide the bottom portion of the plastic egg off.  If the bath fizzy egg is not  stuck together, spritz each half with the witch hazel then place the two halves together.  Gently hold these two halves in place, and using your thumb, reinforce the seam of the egg halves until they do stick together.  Then set aside and allow to harden for about 15-20 minutes.

The Easter egg bath fizzes are now ready for use.  If you want, place the fizzy eggs into an Easter basket and give as basket to give as an Easter gift.
