What Is a Shamrock Shake?
The Shamrock Shake is a milkshake dessert with a mint flavor sold at McDonald's restaurants. The milkshake, however, is only available during March to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.

Steps to Make a DIY Shamrock Shake Bath Bomb

Make sure to prepare all the materials you need for the Shamrock Shake bath bomb. This ensures there will be no interruptions during the process if you remember something needed.
The ingredients you need are as follows:
- 20 drops green gel food coloring
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- ¼ tsp peppermint essential oil
- ¼ tsp fractionated coconut oil
- ½ cup baking soda
- ¼ cup Epsom salt
- ¼ cup corn starch
- Candy Shamrock sprinkles (optional)
- Sugar sprinkles (optional)
- ¼ cup citric acid
You also need a few supplies such as:
- Bath bomb mold (round, 3 inches in diameter)
Step 2: Combine the Ingredients
Make sure to combine the ingredients well to get the perfect result.
Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl first. Add the rest of the ingredients while still mixing.
Ensure to whisk the vanilla extract right in the mixture as it generates a little fizz.
Step 3: Position the Sprinkles
Do this step if you're using sprinkles. This step ensures the sprinkles are in the right place when molding the Shamrock Shake bath bomb.
Place the candy and sugar sprinkles on one side of the mold before filling it. One teaspoon of sprinkles is enough.
Step 4: Put the Mixture in the Mold
Make sure to press the mixture into each side of the mold to properly shape the Shamrock Shake bath bomb.
Divide the mixture into two and press each into each side of the mold. Pack each mold side well and then overfill it a little bit.
Combine both sides of the mold together and then press firmly. Leave the mold to rest for several hours.
Unmold the Shamrock Shake bath bomb, and it's ready!

Instructions for Making a DIY Shamrock Shake Bath Soap
What's great about this Shamrock Shake bath soap recipe is you can either make it creamy or go for the deep green version.
Step 1: Secure the Ingredients
Since you will be making either a creamy or deep green version or both, ensure to gather all the ingredients first so you can proceed with the making with no disruptions.
What you need for the creamy version are:
- ¼ non-toxic green crayon
- ¼ non-toxic yellow-green crayon
- 3 oz pour soap and goat's milk melt
For the deep green version, you need:
- ¼-½ non-toxic green crayon
- 3 oz pour and melt glycerin soap
For both versions, you need these:
- Silicone clover soap mold
- 10 drops peppermint essential oil
- 15 drops vanilla essential oil
Step 2: Combine the Ingredients
You need to mix the ingredients well to achieve the perfect blend for both versions.
Chop the soap and break the crayon for both versions. Place them in a microwave-safe dish before heating them in the microwave oven.
Melt the ingredients for 30-45 seconds, then remove the mixture from the oven. Stir the melted ingredients well until the mixture dissolves completely.
Step 3: Add the Oils
Adding essential oils to the mixture creates a wonderful aroma to the Shamrock Shake soap.
Simply mix the essential oil in the dish and stir well.
Step 4: Mold the Mixture
You can use any shape for the soap but make sure it's easy to hold and use.
Once the mixture is ready, pour it in the soap mold (3 oz). Set aside to let it cool.
You can place the mold in the fridge for several hours to harden it well before using it.
