The Pumpkin Spiced Bath Bomb!
Is there really a better scent related to fall, then pumpkin spice? Indeed, sometimes it gets a little overwhelming, right! However, there is a reason this flavor or fragrance continues to trend at this time of the year.
Pumpkin spice packs a serious punch, and it’s seemingly, always a hit.
So let the creativity continue with these amazing, pumpkin-spiced bath bombs.
- Baking Soda – 4 Cup
- Citric Acid – 2 Cup
- SLSA – 1/2 Cup
- Cream Of Tartar – 1 TBSP
- Kaolin Clay – 1 tsp
- Cocoa Powder – 1 TBSP
- Brown Mica Powder – 1/4 tsp
- Coffee Beans (whole)
- Jojoba Oil (you can substitute for another lightweight oil – 1 TBSP, or butters, like Shea butter)
- Polysorbate 80 – 1 tsp (5 grams)
- Pumpkin Spice Fragrance Oil – 15 Drops
- Espresso Fragrance Oil – 10 Drops
- Spray Bottle Witch Hazel
- Mixing Bowl (3) – 1 Should be large
- Measuring spoons
- Measuring cups
- Whisk or Stand Mixer
- Mask, gloves, eye cover
- Bath Bomb Mold (round stainless steel 3 -4oz. mold)
- 2 Droppers
- Wooden mixing spoon
First, take one of your mixing bowls and add your dry ingredients. For example, baking soda, citric acid, SLSA, kaolin clay, and cream of tartar. Try and stick with fine grain supplies whenever possible. However, clumps can still develop. You’ll want to rub the mixture between your hands or run the ingredients through a sifter.
Furthermore, kaolin clay is recommended in these fall bath bombs as it helps harden the bath bomb and give your skin a silky smooth feeling. With that being said, you should be wearing gloves & a mask due to the lightweight nature of some of these ingredients, they can become airborne and make you cough.
Tip: Do not add mica, cocoa powder or coffee beans, just yet
Secondly, in another mixing bowl, add your wet ingredients. For instance, the fragrance oil(s), polysorbate 80, and jojoba oil.
Shea butter can be a substitute if you don’t have jojoba oil for it’s skin nourishing ability. However, with heavier/harder oils, you’ll need to melt them first in the microwave, to get to liquid form.
Now, add your wet ingredients into your dry mixture. You can use your hands for these small batches or a stand mixer. However, small batches do well if you use your hands, as you get a great feel of texture and correct consistency prior to molding the ingredients.
Now, separate you mixture evenly.
Afterwards, add your cocoa powder, and brown mica to one of the bowls.
At this time, pick up your spray bottle of witch hazel. Start with 3-5 sprays (to each bowl) at a time and begin to mix.
If you’ve read our blog posts on bath bombs or shower steamers, you’ll know that to make sure you have the right consistency, you can do the “drop test”.
The drop test includes grabbing a handful of mixture, squeezing it together and then dropping it from about 8-10 inches above the bowl. If it stays together, generally speaking, you are ready to mold.
Now that your mixture is the correct consistency, take one-half of your mold in your hand. Add 5 or so coffee beans and place them in the bottom of the mold.
Now, overfill that half of the mold with your white mixture, this should really make the brown coffee beans “pop” in the final unveiling.
Take the other mold half and do the same with the brown mixture.
Afterwards, press each half together, for a few seconds, do not twist. Now, tap the top of the mold, with your wooden spoon.
The top piece should come off easily, but if not, give it a few more taps.
At this point, the top half of the bath bomb is exposed and the bottom mold is still attached. Try tapping the bottom half of the mold and flip it over into your hand or soft surface, like egg carton foam.
* Additionally, you can try this same recipe, and put more layers into it. For example, instead of just one half of each side being a different color, you could create 4, 5, even 6 layers of color.*
Now, let the the bath bomb dry 24-48 hours, then place it in warm bath water slowly, with the bath bomb in palm of your hand.
That’s it, you now have yourself an awesome Fall inspired bath bomb to make and use anytime of the year!
