Do you love pumpkin spice lattes so much you want to bathe in it? Well, now you can! These pumpkin spice latte bath bombs smell amazing and will leave your skin feeling super soft!
Each year the summer draws to a close, the days shorten, the air gets cooler, and pumpkin spice takes over the world.
Now I know that there is a bit of debate about pumpkin spice being the best flavor in the world, there are people who don’t like it *shocking I know!*
I personally love it, I also love the other flavors of fall like apple cider, butternut squash… they are all delicious!
Beyond the tastiness of fall flavors I love the scents! Whether it is making my home smell amazing with candles or my fall scented wax tarts or using my favorite Mrs. Meyers fall scented cleaners & hand soap, or creating something like these pumpkin spice latte bath bombs, I love surrounding myself with the season’s amazing scents!
A relaxing bath is one of my favorite forms of self-care. Sometimes I take my book and spend quiet time reading, other times I watch Gilmore Girls on my phone and let my brain relax. Either way I love to add bubble bath and bath bombs to make it even more relaxing.
Once figured out how easy it is to make bath bombs and shower melts, I’ve rarely bought them. These are easy to make and they are the perfect way to relax this fall.
Here is What You’ll Need For These Pumpkin Spice Latte Bath Bombs
1 cup of baking soda
2 tablespoons of instant coffee
2 tablespoons pumpkin spice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond/coconut oil
1/2 of cornstarch
1/4 cup Epsom salt
1/4 cup citric acid– found in the canning section of your grocery store or on Amazon
2-3 teaspoons water
First, you mix your dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl
Next mix your vanilla and almond oil together in a small bowl.
Slowly mix your vanilla and almond oil mixture into your dry ingredients until well blended.
Now we’re going to add in the water. The trick here is to just add a tiny bit at a time to get the desired consistency. You don’t want to add it too fast or it will cause your ingredients to react, so just add a little at a time until the mixture holds together when you squeeze it.
Now press the mixture into your molds. You can make full spheres or leave them halves like I did. It’s up to you!
Allow them to harden for 24 hours to make sure they are nice and dry. Once they are dry pop them out of the molds.
Store them in an airtight container. When you want to use them just toss one or two in the bath, relax and enjoy!
- 1 cup of baking soda
- 2 tablespoons of instant coffee
- 2 tablespoons pumpkin spice
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon almond/coconut oil
- 1/2 of cornstarch
- 1/4 cup Epsom salt
- 1/4 cup citric acid
- 2-3 teaspoons water
- Bath Bomb molds
Stir together all dry ingredients until very well combined.
Mix in the vanilla extract and almond oil.
Slowly add water into the dry ingredients and stir, adding no more than 1 teaspoon at a time until it is slightly damp. You want to make sure it's not soaked, just damp, as you can see once you add the water it begins to fizz, adding too much water will make it hard for your bath bombs to harden.
Press mixture firmly into the mold, be sure to press it in tightly, you can either make a half as I did here (these can be used as shower melts for the aromatherapy or as bath bombs!) or press two halves together to create a large round bath bomb.
Allow them to harden overnight.
Gently pop out of the mold and store in a dry area until ready to use.
