Tips to Make Pumpkin Bath Bombs
- I have been all about making embed bath bombs lately because it adds such a fun touch to bath bombs you’re giving as a gift or just as decoration. Also, I just love sprinkles. Anyway, I couldn’t wait to use these pumpkin spice sprinkles here to make my pumpkin spice bath bombs. There’s little leaves, pumpkins, bits that look like chocolate and more. So much fall fun.
- Now, to make pumpkin spice bath bombs the most pumpkin spice smelling as possible, I used a little pumpkin spice flavoring (ok, maybe more than just a drop or two, because I wanted a LOT of fragrance).
- Add into your recipe planning, keep in mind you need to on let your bath bombs dry for about 24 hours before using them, that way you get the best pumpkin spice fizz. As a little bonus, when you’re letting these pumpkin bath bombs dry for that full day, if you accidentally made the mixture a bit moist, you’ll still be getting that peak fizz you’re looking for.
- After they’ve fully dried, I recommend you keep your Lush-inspired bath bombs in an air-tight container (maybe a pretty one you keep on the counter) so they’ll last longer with the best fizz. And definitely let anyone know that you might be gifting your bath bombs to.
How Do I Make Pumpkin Spice Bath Bombs?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- 1 1/2 cup baking soda
- 3/4 cup citric acid
- 1 tbsp bentonite clay
- 1 tbsp epsom salts
- 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
- 1/2 tsp pumpkin spice flavoring
- 1/2 tbsp polysorbate 80 (to keep the colorant from sticking to the bathtub)
- 1 tsp red mica powder
- 1 tsp yellow mica powder
- 2-4 tablespoons fall sprinkles blend
- 1/2 tsp alcohol, optional
- 1/2 tsp cornstarch
- Bath Bomb Molds
- Measuring Spoons
- Paint Brush
- Whisk together the baking soda, citric acid, clay and epsom salts.
- In a second bowl, combine the melted coconut oil, essential oil blend and polysorbate 80 together, mixing well.
- Add liquid ingredients 1 tsp at a time to the dry ingredients, mixing it together slowly so as not to start the fizzy reaction.
- Add the red and yellow mica powder and stir until the color is consistent throughout. If you would like a more intense color, add more mica powder in 1 tsp increments, stirring between each increment until you have a dark color. Keep in mind that the color will fade a little when the mixture dries.
- Dust the bottom of one side of the bath bomb mold with cornstarch. The sprinkle side tends to come out on its own, so do not bother to dust that side with cornstarch.
- Place about 1 tsp of sprinkles in the non-dusted side of the bath bomb mold.
- Immediately pack each side of the bath bomb mold with the mixture. Pack extra bath bomb mixture between the two molds, then press the two sides together, grinding and pressing them to force the two together.
- Allow the bath bombs to rest in the mold for up to 24 hours before gently tapping the top and side of the mold to release the bombs.
- Use your bath bombs immediately or store in an airtight container until you’re ready to use!
