DIY Easter Egg Bath Bombs {Gentle Clean}

This review was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Pampers. I was provided the featured product free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% mine.

My family is full of sensitive skin so we watch everything that we put on and in our bodies.  With my babies, I have always used the most gentle products, and wipes are definitely no different.  For the most sensitive areas, we rely on Pampers Sensitive Wipes.  When I was challenged to give the ‘Gift of Gentle Clean” I immediately knew what to do and who to give it to.  The best way to get a gentle clean is to make your own products, bath bombs being a must!

The other day my daughter was out in the yard kicking around a soccer ball. We have a shared boundary wall with our neighbor — and I’m sure you can see where this story is going — she kicked that ball right over that wall.  That particular neighbor is not there half the year (it is their third home) so I thought for sure we wouldn’t be seeing that ball again for a long time.  Well, what d’ya know, the soccer ball came flying right back over that wall — oops!  And that is the story of how I met that neighbor.  Anyway, I knew I needed to give them a gift, and a pamper package seemed just the thing!

Making bath bombs is a lot easier than you may think, and once you try it you’ll be totally addicted.  I used to pay an exorbitant amount for my bath bombs and used them sparingly.  Now I use them every bath and my daughter does too… although now at age 7 she thinks baths are for babies — but not when you have a bomb!

Back to the bomb.  Okay, here is the basic recipe, which I have used in a very Easterly way — the perfect gift for a gentle clean.

DIY Bath Bomb

  • 2 Tbl baking soda
  • 1 Tbl citric acid powder
  • 1 Tbl cornstarch
  • 1 Tbl epsom salts
  • 1/4 tsp oil (any kind of light oil)
  • 3/4 tsp liquid (essential oils, water, teas)
  • a drop or two of food coloring

Directions: As with baking, mix dry (baking soda, citric acid powder, cornstarch, epsom salts) in a bowl and whisk until no lumps.  Pour in liquid while still whisking, a reaction will occur, keep whisking until you are uniform in color.  The mixture should be crumbly still.  Pack the mixture into the mold (plastic eggs* in this case).  Allow to sit for 20 min.  Remove and allow to dry for 2 days before using or gifting.  Tie a ribbon around the seam if you like!

* don’t use new eggs as they are too stiff/hard to open and the bomb may break trying to get them out.

Bath bombs. Check.  Since being so awkwardly introduced to my neighbors, I’ve learned they have a new grandchild.  To complete my Gift of Gentle Clean, I added in grandparent essentials aka diapers and an Easter board book to tie it all together.

    The first thing I am going to do is power wash the entire exterior of my house. I just bought the home in November and the bricks are very dingy.
