I made little pink bunny Easter Bath Bombs for my daughter this week, using a simple Lemongrass bath bombs recipe.
These little rabbit bath bombs would make an adorable gift set with my rubber ducky soaps and Easter egg bath bombs. Older kids might get a kick out of Poop Emoji bath bombs or Ring Bath Bombs.
Easter Bath Bombs: Bunny Mold
This is the first time I've actually made character bath bombs, but the cute little bunny egg mold I had on hand seemed the perfect shape and size for kid's Easter Bath Bombs. I ended out loving using this as a bath bomb mold. I packed each side densely, and rather than squeezing the two sides together like with the big round ones I make for adults, I simply rapped each side of the mold on the counter to pop them out. Perfectly sized bath bomb tablets for kids. I don't believe in making children's baths too concentrated with ingredients. Their skin is well known to be more absorbent than adults.
This is the mold I used to make the bunny Easter Bath Bombs with. You may as while grab it now, egg molds like this a nearly impossible to find in stores (I know I tried).
Kotobuki Plastic Egg Mold, Rabbit and Bear
The bunny mold is also available as part of a 6pc set with more fun shapes if you prefer (car, fish, star & heart).
Lemongrass essential oil is one of the oils generally accepted as safe for kids. It is also a strong favorite of my daughter.
Benefits of Lemongrass Essential Oil
Lemongrass essential oil creates a generally soothing and uplifting atmosphere, which is great for a positive bedtime routine. It has a pleasant mild scent that is not is not too "perfumy", and is mildly analgesic and antiseptic, so great for the little nicks and scratches of life as a kid.
... and well, bunnies like grass...lol.
Alternative bath bomb recipe: If lemongrass is not your thing, try my Lavender Oatmeal Bath Bombs Recipe with these molds. The only thing I would change is perhaps grinding the oats in a food processor to maintain the mold detail, but the recipe is great for children.
