Pumpkin Spice Bath Bombs are homemade bath fizzy recipe with a warming pumpkin spice scent. Drop one of these bath bombs into your tub to create a relaxing and luxurious bath experience.
Hello there! If you have been around awhile, you already know that I love to make my own homemade bath and beauty products. Today, I am sharing a recipe for some Pumpkin Spice Bath Bombs. If you love the smell of pumpkin spice and the color coral, you are going to love these bath bombs. They are moisturizing and create a relaxing bath experience.
This recipe is adapted from my Green Tea Bath Bombs.
Supplies (affiliate links):
3 cups Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda)
1.5 cups Citric Acid
1 oz. Pumpkin Spice Fragrance Oil
10 ml Coral Orange La Bomb Colorant
8 oz. Bottles (Spray Top)
2-3 Stainless Steel Bath Bomb Mold
Step 1: Start by adding two to three drops of Cyclomethicone into each piece of the metal mold and rub the inside of each mold using your fingers, evenly distributing the Cyclomethicone. Cyclomethicone is a popular cosmetic additive that gives products a nice “slip” and will help release the bombs easier.
Step 2: In a large bowl, combine the sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) and citric acid. Use your hands or a mesh strainer to remove any clumps. You might want to wear gloves just to protect protect your hands.
Step 3: Add 1 oz Pumpkin Spice Fragrance Oil using a dropper. I used 10 ml of this oil for this recipe or approximately 3 full droppers. The plastic droppers I used each measure 3.5 ml (.7 tsp) and are graduated for ease of measuring. I highly recommend these droppers for essential oils. They are easy to use and very durable.
Step 4: Add 10 ml of Coral Orange La Bomb Colorant using a separate dropper. Once again I used 10 ml (3 full droppers) for this recipe. The colorant is what gives the bath bombs their beautiful color. Don’t worry that the color looks bright red in the bottle. Once you mix it in it will turn coral orange.
Step 5: Once you have added all of the liquids to the powder mixture, use your hands to fully incorporate all of the ingredients together. Spritz the bath bombs mixture with witch hazel. The mixture should be wet enough so when you squeeze the powder in your palm, it will stick together. The recommended amount of witch hazel is between 7-10 spritzes. I sprayed more than that amount. You just have to check the consistency.
Step 6: Once the bath bomb mixture has reached a mold-able consistency, fill one half of the bath bomb mold mixture, packing gently and set aside. Fill the remaining half of the mold with bath bomb mixture. Slightly overfill this half and squeeze the two halves of the mold together firmly. Allow the molds to set up for 15 minutes. Very gently, pull one half of the mold away. Slightly twisting and squeezing the mold while pulling away can make this step easier. Sometimes it can be a little tricky to get the bath bombs to stick together. Once one half of the mold is removed, you can leave the bomb in the mold for an hour harden and then gently flip it over and remove the other half of the mold.
