Pumpkin Bath Melts Recipe: A little Bit of Pumpkin HistoryPumpkin Bath Melts Recipe: A little Bit of Pumpkin History

Pumpkins have been a part of history for quite sometime. In fact, they were a staple in early American diets and not in pumpkin pie! The oldest evidence of pumpkins were in pumpkin-related seeds dating between 7000 and 5500 B.C. and were found in Mexico. Then, only the seeds were eaten as the pumpkins flesh was too bitter to be eaten. However, with cultivation, pumpkins began to develop a sweeter taste and became a Native American staple. Pumpkin was dried, stewed, baked and roasted. When the pumpkin had been hollowed out, they could be used as a water vessels, storage containers or even bowls.

Pumpkins were such a large part of some Native American food culture. They were actually part of a growing process the Indians called “The Three Sisters”. The sisters were corn, pumpkins and beans. These vegetables were planted together, each one benefiting the other as they grew. Nowadays, pumpkins are a natural fall icon, used mostly for Jack O’ Lanterns, or fall decorating. These pumpkins are mass produced and not edible in the least, although there are still pumpkins grown strictly for eating. These are smaller, denser and sweeter tasting and perfect for those Thanksgiving pumpkin pies and cakes!

Make sure that you have all your ingredients within easy reach and that you also have enough room to work in. Also, make sure your equipment and utensils are also clean and sanitized. We also suggest wearing a hair net and protective clothing when preparing this recipe.  These steps will ensure that you can work smoothly without any interruptions in your creating. Now, we can get started on your recipe!

Pumpkin Bath Melts Recipe: Prepare Your Double Boiler

You will be using a double boiler to melt your waxes and butters, so you will want to get that ready. If you are familiar with how a double boiler works, you can skip this part and move on to the next step. If not, we can give a quick tutorial on setting one up. Double boilers are easy to create. You will need 2 different sized pots, preferably ones that you no longer use for cooking. One pot should be smaller than the other, so that it can fit inside the larger one. In the larger pot, place a few inches of water. To the smaller pot, you will add your waxes and butters. Then you will place the smaller pot into the larger pot to allow the butters and waxes to melt.

Pumpkin Bath Melts Recipe: Prepping the Wax, Oils and ButtersPumpkin Bath Melts Recipe: Prepping the Wax, Oils and Butters

Once you have the outside pot heating on the heat source, you will weigh out the wax, oils and butters to the smaller pot. Place your clean pot on the scale, tare out the weight and weigh in 57 grams of Palm Oil, 42 grams of Mango Butter, 113 grams of Cocoa Butter Golden Natural, 6 grams of White Beeswax and 15 grams of Pumpkin Seed Oil.

 

 

Pumpkin Bath Melts Recipe: Melting the Wax, Oils and Butters

Place the smaller pot inside the larger pot. Now you will melt the oils, butters and wax on a gentle heat, stirring occasionally, until everything is melted and combined. Once everything is nicely melted, you can turn off your heat and remove the inner pot and set it aside for the moment.

Pumpkin Bath Melts Recipe: Prepping the Powders, Micas and Fragrance OilPumpkin Bath Melts Recipe: Prepping the Powders, Micas and Fragrance Oil

While you are waiting for the butters to melt, you can prep the powders and micas. So to a small bowl that is placed on your scale, weigh in 2 grams of pumpkin seed powder, 2 grams of pumpkin pie spice blend powder, 1 gram of Diamond Dust Mica, 1 gram of 24K Gold Mica and 4 grams of Caramel Apple fragrance oil.  Mix this together using a spoon until everything is incorporated.

Pumpkin Bath Melts Recipe: Allowing the Melts to Set Up

Next, you will need to allow your bath melts to set up a bit. You want them to have a “film” over the top before attempting to move them. This should not take very long. Once they are set, you can move them to the freezer. Allow the bath melts to set in the freezer for about 30 minutes. Then, you can remove them from the freezer and pop them out of their mold.

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Some of the Ingredients Used

Before we get started on our bubble bars, let’s get familiar with some of the ingredients. Our first ingredient is Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate or SCI. SCI is derived from coconut. It is a foaming and cleansing agent that will leave your skin silky soft and smooth.

Pumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Sodium BicarbonatePumpkin Bubble Bars Recipe: Sodium Bicarbonate

Our next ingredient is Sodium Bicarbonate or Baking Soda. This is is a natural alkaline that is used in cosmetic formulations and cleaning formulas to lift dirt, and remove oils. Using baking soda in your bathtub will leave your skin soft and silky feeling.  It also has the same effect on your hair when used in a rinse. Baking Soda is most often combined with Citric Acid when making bath bombs.

Cream of Tartar is our next ingredient. Most people assume Cream of Tartar is just for baking, however, it is used in many bath products such as bath cookies and of course, bubble bars.

Pumpkin seed oil readily sinks into the skin; not leaving the skin feeling oily and can help to repair dry, damaged skin.
