Fall Has Arrived Y’all!
Today, September 22, 2017, is the official first day of fall. My booties and cute yarn sweaters are ready to bust themselves out the dusty box in the attic!
I cannot express to y’all the joy fall brings me. The leaves change colors, gorgeous outfits with boots to die for, PSLs (Pumpkin Spice Lattes) are making their debut at Starbucks… OH MY!
Even though Fall is my favorite season, it also seems to be the time where all the holidays and birthdays seem to happen all together. There are costume and candy shopping, 3 of my girlfriends’ birthdays, Thanksgiving, and then Black Friday!
Geez, Can You Say Stressful?!?
Cue in my stress relievers! Give me a mug of apple cider, a bar of Dutch dark chocolate, and a bubble bath with a bath bomb… ooh!
Gosh, I love bath bombs but they are so stinkin’ expensive sometimes. So I make my own 😊
Keep scrolling to get my recipe for one of my favorite bath bombs inspired by the upcoming Fall season!
Pumpkin Spiced Bath Bombs
(Click on these links for an easier check out for ingredients)
1/3 cup citric acid
1/2 cup Epsom salt
1 cup baking soda
3 drops electric orange food gel
3 drops clove essential oil
3 drops cinnamon bark essential oil
2 drops nutmeg essential oil
2 drops ginger essential oil
1-2 drops orange essential oil
2 teaspoons coconut oil (more if needed)
Bath Bomb Mold
In a small bowl, add the citric acid, Epsom salt, and baking soda. Stir well. Add in essential oil and coconut oil. Mix with your hands. Using a fork fluff the mixture and mix in orange food gel. Fluff until well incorporated.
Use a bath bomb mold to fill each side and press together. Don’t press too hard. Just enough to connect wait 20 seconds then remove and set on a plate to dry.
