After years of testing countless recipes for the best natural red egg dye for Pascha and Easter celebrations, we have finally perfected the process. And we've made it incredibly easy for your family to enjoy this activity together!

It starts with locally grown heirloom onions—we can see the family-owned farm from our office! The dried skins contain a natural organic dye that produces gorgeous maroon-red Easter eggs. Following our simple instructions that we have developed through extensive testing, you can produce beautiful deep red eggs at home with virtually no mess. And you won't be left with a giant bag of onions that will need to be used!

Your onion skins come bagged in an unbleached 100% compostable bag. Simply steep the entire bag in hot water to make the organic red dye. When you're done, the skins, bag and all, can be safely composted. Onion skin dye is food-safe, organic, and chemical-free for a green and planet-friendly alternative to chemical dyes. (And unlike food coloring, priests and parents will appreciate that eggs dyed with onion skins won't leave a staining residue on the fingers.)

Pick up a bag of our onion skin dye today for your Pascha celebrations!

  • Home Size: Contains the dried skins of 8-10 pounds of raw onions, enough to dye one to two dozen eggs.
  • Church Size: Contains the dried skins of 12-15 pounds of raw onions, enough to dye three to four dozen eggs.
  • It all comes in a compostable or reusable bag made with 100% unbleached bag for effortless and planet-friendly cleanup.
  • Eggs will turn a deep maroon-red, and the exact color will vary depending on the exact properties of your specific eggs.

Ingredients: onion skins grown in Zeeland, Michigan, USA.

Please note- we are no longer using cheesecloth bags. We have upgraded the kit to help the environment even more!

    I have been wanting this for years!

    Posted by Khouria Destinie Winn on Apr 4th 2024

    I've been making red eggs using the onion skin method for years and this is the first year I've used this kit. It was so simple and required no prep, and the clean up was even easier. I love that the bag is made from all natural ingredients so it can be composted. This eco-friendly opinion is exactly what I have been hoping for for years and I'm so thankful Legacy Icons is offering this now! The whole process took about an hour and the eggs were a bright/deep red. I'll definitely be telling everyone I know about this kit!
