Hippity Hoppity Easter’s on its way! Yes, friends! It’s almost time for that big ol’ Easter bunny to show up. My kids are really excited and of course, this has inspired me to think bunny. Bunny Bomb Bath Bombs!
So, I learned how to make bath bombs and posted these mini bath fizz. Aren’t they fun? Well, of course for Easter Bunnies would be the obvious choice right? RIGHT!
Bunny Bombs are not only super cute but they are also really fun and easy to make. My girls also helped me with these which has become a really fun hobby for us to do together! Mother daughter time hasn’t been this fun for a long time!
For Easter, these could make really fun and cute gifts or if you have teen girls they’d make a really fun idea for an Easter hunt. Put them in some of those big plastic Easter eggs and hide them… so unique and fun.
I have such a hard time finding really fun ideas to do for my girls, they are turning 10 and 11 in a few months and are really girly girl. They love makeup, hair accessories and recently developed this huge love for – you guessed it, all things bath and beauty related!
These are just like the mini bath fizz except I didn’t use any cornstarch in these.
What you need:
- 2 Cups of baking soda
- 1 Cup Citric Acid
- 1 Cup of Epsom Salts
- 2 Teaspoons of Coconut Oil
- Water bottle with water to spritz (be very careful with this, too much water ruins it)
- 8 drops of Essential Oils, for this I used Ylang Ylang (optional)
- 6-8 drops of Neon Food Colouring to be very bright and vibrant (optional)
- Combine all dry ingredients then mix with your hands. Breaking any and all clumps in the process.
- Mix in 2 tsps of coconut oil and continue mixing with your hands. Drop in Essential oils if you are using and mix well.
- Spritz with the water bottle, but only a tiny bit if you do too much your mixture will start to fizz or will turn mushy thus being ruined.
- Separate into multiple bowls if using multiple colors, and add in food coloring. If using one color no need to separate. Mix well.
- Layer in your colors if doing multiple colors, and leave to set or put in freezer 10 minutes.
I made sure mine were packed in really tight and left for 10 minutes in the freezer. Then took them out of the molds and left overnight to dry. They were perfect by the next morning!
- This recipe will make 12 bunny bombs depending on the sizes of your molds.
For the scent in these, I used Ylang Ylang. I think it’s a beautiful scent and although you could really use any scent you wish – Ylang Ylang which is great as an Antidepressant, Antiseborrhoeic, Antiseptic, Aphrodisiac, Hypotensive, Sedative, Nervine as well as many other health benefits. So, using Ylang Ylang would be a great choice!
I used a Peep silicone mold to get these bunnies to be really thick. I wanted to do some of them two colors, others solid colors and then a few with a bunch of different colors mixed. These Peeps molds were perfect for that because they are really deep.
Tip: If you put them in the freezer before removing from the mold, they’ll be perfect enough to take out. This is IDEAL when you are making one bunny two different colors. It helps them mold together. I am a very impatient person by default so I’m always trying to take them out too soon. They will break. Throw the whole mold into the freezer for 10 minutes and they’ll pop out perfectly so you can set aside to firm up and keep their shapes!

I plan to put these in some nice clear gift bags and timing them off with a pretty ribbon. They’ll be put in my girls Easter baskets (they know about the Easter bunny) and will be giving some to some friends as a nice Easter gift too. They smell AMAZING.
My boys really enjoy using the blue bunny bombs so I made some extra for them too. I don’t think boys care too much about the scent but boy do they ever excited over the fizzing! It’s so cute to see. I’ll but putting some different colored ones in their Easter Baskets too (blue and green are fun!)
Like this? PIN for later!
