This week here on the blog and in Instagram you’ll find new ideas each day for bringing some homemade fun to your Halloween.

Homemade bath bombs are the perfect way to scare up some fun at bath time. These make excellent gifts or you can just enjoy them yourself! I made these two ways… fizzy jack-o-lanterns and bubbling cauldrons.

In a medium-sized bowl mix up:

1 cup citric acid

1 cup baking soda

1/2 cup cornstarch

Add several drops of skin-safe food coloring to the dry mixture and work it in with your hands. I did green for the cauldrons and orange for the jack-o-lanterns.

Melt 1/2 cup of coconut oil and add 12 drops of sweet cinnamon pumpkin oil. Slowly mix the oils into the dry mixture. Avoid adding too quickly, or it will start too fizz. You can use your hands to incorporate everything nicely.

Next, pack the mixture into your pumpkins or cauldrons. One batch will fill three or four nicely.


Once they are packed, top with sprinkles. Press the sprinkles into the bath bomb with the back of a spoon.


Set these out to dry for about 24 hours. Then you are ready for a spooky, fizzy bath!
