Ingredients & Supplies

Baking Soda - 2 Cup (500 grams)
Citric Acid - 1 Cup (200 grams)
SLSA - Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate - 1/4 Cup
Kaolin Clay - 1 TBSP (3 grams) * (optional)
Jojoba Oil (you can substitute for coconut oil, or Shea butter) - 1 TBSP
Polysorbate 80 - 1 tsp (5 grams)
Pumpkin Spice Fragrance Oil - 15 Drops
Espresso Fragrance Oil - 10 - 12 Drops
Cocoa Powder
Brown Mica Powder
Spray Bottle with Water/Isopropyl Alcohol Mix
5-10 Coffee Beans
Mixing Bowl (3)
Measuring spoons
Measuring cups
Mask, gloves, eye cover
Bath Bomb Mold (round stainless steel 3 oz. mold)

Not only is the aroma of these divine, they are easy to make and look the part as well.


Step 1:

Take one of your mixing bowls of the (3) and add your dry ingredients. This includes your baking soda, citric acid, SLSA and kaolin clay (optional). Try and stick with fine grain supplies whenever possible, it just makes formulating bath bombs easier. Even with using fine grain baking soda however, you can still get clumps.

If that's the case take the mixture and run it between your hands to break up the clumps. Kaolin clay is recommended in this bath bomb because it can really help to give your skin that extra smooth feeling and harden up the bath bombs. We recommend you wear gloves & a mask whenever making bath bombs.


Do not add mica, cocoa powder or coffee beans yet

Step 2

In another mixing bowl you can add your wet ingredients. Wet ingredients include your fragrance oil(s) in this case, polysorbate 80, and Jojoba Oil. Shea butter is a great substitute if you don't have jojoba oil, you simply need to melt it first in the microwave to get to liquid form.

Step 3

Now, add your wet ingredients into your mixture. Mix immediately. You can also use a hand or stand mixture, but we like doing these recipes by hand for just a few bath bombs because it gives you a better feel for the texture and correct consistency.

Step 4

Now separate you mixture evenly. 1/2 in each bowl.

Step 5

Now, add you cocoa powder, and brown mica to one of the bowls.

Step 6

At this point the mixture(s) should not be ready yet. This is where your spray bottle comes into play. Start with 3-5 sprays at a time. Add your sprays and immediately start to mix, if not your mixture may start to react from the water in the spray bottle, baking soda and citric acid.

Step 7

If you have read our other blog posts about bath bombs or shower steamers, you will 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 your are ready to mold.

Step 8

Now that your mixture is the right wetness and consistency, take one-half of your mold in your hand (preferably your white mixture). Take first your 5 or so coffee beans and place them in the bottom of one half of you 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.

Do not pack down.

Step 9

Take the other mold half and do the same.

Step 10

Press the molds together, do not twist. Just push hard for a few seconds, then tap the top of the mold. You can use a wooden mixing spoon for this.

Step 11

The top piece should come off easily, but if not give it a few more taps. Try not to twist the mold to much, you really just should be able to pull the top piece straight off.

Step 12

At this point the top half of the bath bomb is exposed and the bottom mold is still on. Try tapping the bottom half of the mold and then flip over into your other hand. It should come out nicely. Place it on a soft surface, like egg cartoon foam.


Some recipes call for bath bombs to stay in the mold for a few minutes up to an few hours. If you have the right consistency you really should not have to do this.

Step 13

Let dry 24-48 hours. Place 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!
