Pumpkin Bath Bombs with FREE Printable Gift Tags

pumpkin bath bombs with printable gift tags

My kids love bath bombs. Every single time I see them, I pick them up a few but they can be pretty pricey so I decided to start making my own! It really is so simple to make and cheaper than buying at the store. With Halloween right around the corner, I wanted to make Bath Bombs the kids can give to their teachers as a little gift. These Pumpkin Bath bombs are on the smaller side since they were made with pumpkin ice cube trays found at Dollar Tree. I’m all about shortcuts!

To make the bath bombs you need to double the amount of baking soda per Citric Acid. That’s where all the fizz action happens. What I love about Bath bombs is how easy it is to customize to exactly what you want. You can add fragrance oils to the bath bomb to really take you to a relaxing place. I kept it simple with this recipe but I’ll be experimenting more in the future.

My kids also have sensitive skin so I was very careful in choosing what to add. I made sure I used Essential oils that were safe for kids. The Kid Safe essential oils are plant-based with Chamomile Roman, Lavender, Mandarin and Tangerine.

Here is what you need to make Pumpkin Bath Bombs:

2 Tablespoons Citric Acid (I used this one)
4 Tablespoons Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Antioxidant oil (you can also use Coconut oil, argan oil, even vegetable oil)
5-6 drops of Essential oils (I used this KidSafe one)
15 drops of Yellow food coloring
5 drops of Red food coloring
Ice cube pumpkin mold from the Dollar store (or these)

(optional) Edible orange sprinkles

(optional) Cosmetic-safe glitter 


In a bowl, combine the Citric Acid and Baking soda. Mix well.

In another bowl, combine Antioxidant oil, essential oils, and food coloring. Mix well. You can add more or less food coloring drops depending on your desired color. Next, slowly add the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Add a little bit of liquid at a time. Adding to quickly can cause your mixture to start fizzing.

Slowly combine all the ingredients together until it feels a little like wet sand. If it is able to hold its shape it is ready!

Carefully, press the mixture into your mold. (If you are adding glitter or sprinkles do that first then press the mixture into the mold) Allow it to dry overnight or if you want to expedite the process pop it in the fridge for a few hours. If you plan to gift these like I am, let the bath bombs dry completely for a few days.

The gift tags fit on a printer sized sheet of paper. There are 16 labels to each sheet. Just send it to the printer and cut what you need. I used a small hole pincher at the corner and tied it with a ribbon around the clear cellophane bag. You can also use tissue paper to wrap them. The tag says, “Hey Pumpkin, You’re the bomb! Happy Halloween!”
