Easter Bath Eggs and Easter Candles

This Easter after long hours in the kitchen and lots of family gatherings, pamper yourself with these adorable bath "eggs"!  These luxurious bath treats have a high shea butter content which means that your skin will feel super soft and smooth after your bath, and they also contain fizzing ingredients and soothing epsom salts.  Here's what you'll need to make 4 bath "eggs":

4 heaping teaspoons Shea Butter Refined
3 heaping teaspoons Sodium Bicarbonate
1 heaping teaspoon Citric Acid
1 teaspoon Shea Oil
Drops of Fragrance Oil or Essential Oil if desired

Step 1: Combine the shea butter, sodium bicarbonate, citric acid, and shea oil together in a bowl.  

Step 2: Add drops of fragrance (we used Citrus Celebration) until desired scent level is reached.  We used about half a teaspoon of fragrance.  

Step 3: Mix the ingredients together with the back of a spoon.  Continue to do so until the mixture is uniform and easily sticks together when you squish it.  If you're finding it to be too dry, add some more shea butter.

Step 4: After the mixture is fully combined start forming little balls in your hand.  Mold them in the shape of an egg. 

Step 5: Add about a tablespoon of epsom salts to a small container.  Colour the salts with your choice of colourant, be it mica, chromium greens, ultramarines, or liquid labcolours.  You can do multiple batches of epsom salts with different colours, we used Violet Mica, Romantic Rose Mica, Chromium Hydroxide, and Canary Labcolour.  

Step 6: Roll the balls in the epsom salts until all sides are covered.  

There you have it!  Throw the little eggs into the bath water as it's being poured for a relaxing, skin softening experience!  These bath treats would make the perfect Easter dinner favour for guests to take home!

Make sure to decorate this upcoming Easter with these adorable Easter candles.  Made in our 2, 4, and 6 oz deep tins they are eye catching and totally in season!  For instructions on how to make soy container candles click here

We used the EcoSoya CB Advanced container wax, Lilac and Lilies fragrance oil, and various candle dye pads.  We found that the 2 oz tin uses the RRD 34 x 2.5" wick, the 4 oz uses the HTP 104 x 4" wick, and the 6 oz tins works perfectly with the HTP 1212 x 3.5" wick.  These cheerful candles bring joy into any environment!  

Happy holidays!
