Coffee – surprisingly – can be helpful for smoothing and softening skin. These Hazelnut Coffee Bath Bombs not only smell good, but are a fun addition to your bathtub!
Many years ago – long before my husband and I were engaged – I worked a part-time job for a candle company. They sold a candle that smelled like hazelnut coffee, and it was tough to come by sometimes. My husband loved the scent, and we still have one candle in a box in that scent. It is brought out during the fall and winter because it’s a great cooler weather fragrance. Fast forward to know and our family’s obsession with bath bombs, and I think Hazelnut Coffee Bath Bombs sound amazing.
I think Hazelnut Coffee Bath Bombs sound fairly luxurious. And little known fact about me – I love the smell of coffee. I don’t drink hot coffee, though.
We buy our fair share of bath bombs and they run anywhere from $5 per bath bomb to $12 or more. It’s rare we spend at the higher end of the price range, but if you’re buying for a family of four, it adds up quickly. Making them can be easy and fun to experiment with different scents. I’m still trying to come up with a way to hide tiny toys inside bath bombs to make the even more fun for my kids!
If you’re looking for other bath bomb recipes, I have several at the end of this post.
Ingredients for Hazelnut Coffee Bath Bombs:
- 2 oz Epsom salt
- 4 oz baking soda
- 2 oz corn starch
- 2 oz citric acid
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- ½ tbsp water
- 2 tablespoons Hazelnut coffee grounds
What you need to make Hazelnut Coffee Bath Bombs:
- Large bowl
- 2-3 medium size round bath bomb molds
- Small jar with lid
- Measuring cups
- Measuring spoons
How to make Hazelnut Coffee Bath Bombs:
- Mix the dry ingredients first (Epsom salt, baking soda, cornstarch and citric acid), using the whisk. Mix well to ensure there are no clumps.
- Add half the coffee grounds. Stir well until combined.
- Pour the wet ingredients (coconut oil and water) into jar, secure the lid and shake well.
- Very slowly add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture, about a few drops at time, while whisking. If you’re not pouring slowly enough, the mixture will start to fizz and you don’t want that to happen.
- Once all of the liquid has been poured into the dry mixture, mix very well until the color is consistent.
- Put some of the coffee grounds into one side of each mold.
- Immediately fill the molds with the mixture, firmly stuffing each side full.
- Secure both parts of the mold together and let set. I always give it about a day, just to be on the safe side.
- Carefully release bath bombs from molds and put into an airtight container, or individual cello bags.
