DIY Pumpkin Spice Latte Bath Soak
Learn how to make a decadent DIY pumpkin spice latte bath soak. This homemade bath soak recipe is naturally fragranced with a unique essential oil blend which imparts a warm pumpkin spice scent to these homemade pumpkin spice bath salts.
The key ingredient in this bath soak recipe is pumpkin powder which is pumpkin that has been dehydrated and ground into a fine powder. Pumpkin powder is antioxidant-rich and contains a multitude of vitamins, including vitamins A and C.
This soak also contains medium-coarse Ceara bath salts which are naturally white and ideal for coloring.
Ceara salts are solar evaporated sea salts from Australia.
Moisturizing milk powder is also used in our recipe. Milk powder has a plethora of skin benefits as it contains lactic acid, a natural alpha hydroxy acid (AHA). Lactic acid is known for its exfoliating properties, but only when used at a low pH.
In bathwater, lactic acid will instead act as a natural humectant which can help to soften and hydrate your skin.
But if you’re vegan, you can substitute powdered milk for organic coconut milk powder.
A pumpkin spice latte soak wouldn't be complete without coffee! Coffee is known for its ability to reduce the appearance of cellulite when used in body products. Coffee is also very high in antioxidants.
However, we recommend using instant micro ground coffee rather than coffee grounds in your homemade bath and body recipes. This is because ground coffee can cause plumbing issues over time.
If you want to skip the coffee, you can also make a pumpkin spice bath soak without the coffee.

Wooden spoons for mixing
Storage containers – glass vials, muslin bath tea bags, mason jars or bath salt jars.
Put the Ceara bath salts, Natrasorb Bath, instant coffee, pumpkin powder and milk powder into separate glass bowls.
Add the fractionated coconut oil to the bowl of bath salts and combine gently.
After the bath salts are coated in oil, sprinkle a tablespoon of pumpkin powder to color the salts light orange. Blend gently.
You can add a dash of coffee grounds to the bath salts as well. Or use the coffee later during the layering process.
Then, add the pumpkin spice essential oils to the bowl containing Natrasorb Bath. Mix thoroughly. Then, add the milk powder to the Natrasorb Bath and stir to combine.
Layer the ingredients in a glass jar with a lid or cork stopper, such as the one shown in the photos above. Or, you can layer the bath soak in glass bath vials, which are also called bath shots and which are pictured below.
Mason jars can be used as well. If you wish, you can also choose to mix all of the ingredients together and skip the layering.
NOTE: The bath soak can also be used by putting the mixture in muslin bags to create a pumpkin spice latte bath tea.
How to use this pumpkin spice latte bath soak:
Sprinkle the contents of the glass jar (or one bath vial) into a warm bath. Soak for 20 minutes or more to maximize the moisturizing benefits of this bath soak.
