PUMPKIN SPICE LOTION BARS – DIY (+ FREE PRINTABLE LABEL)

Our favourite season is here! It’s fall y’all & we love pumpkin spice everything!!

This recipe is from our combined 2014 post: PUMPKIN SPICE BATH BLEND, LOTION BARS & SUGAR SCRUB! ~ DIY. I decided to separate this one for easier reference & to update the image. ^_^

 PUMPKIN SPICE LOTION BARS:

PUMPKIN SPICE LOTION BARS

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

Depending on how firm or soft you like your lotion bars will determine how much of each ingredient to use. More beeswax will be more firm, less (or more of an oil) will be softer. SO I’d say for me, I like equal parts of each of the above ingredients BUT If you are adding in the optionals below (more beneficial for your skin) then I would put in a little bit more beeswax. (amounts will also depend on how many you are making)

So for general:

  • 1 part beeswax
  • 1 part coconut oil
  • 1 part infused oil

optional:

If you’re adding in shea, do it last as if it heats too hot it’ll cure grainy with white pearls.

Tools:

  • Melting pot or double boiler
  • stir stick or spoon
  • silicone molds of your choosing ( I used ones similar to THESE)
  • plastic wrap or cellophane / tins or containers.
  • pumpkin stickers (optional) (Links below)

TO MAKE:

Melt beeswax first (using a double boiler, pan, melting pot etc – I use a wax melting pot, but anything safe should do)

Slowly stir in your other ingredients, leaving shea butter until last. (it may ‘crystallize’ if heated too hot) If at any point you’d like to test your consistency, you can do so by dipping a frozen spoon in your mixture.

Remove from heat and pour into your molds.

Allow to cool thoroughly or put them into the fridge to speed the process.

Now you can package them up how you’d like. There’s lots of cute tins on amazon. I wrapped these ones in cellophane and stuck the labels and stickers to them. They were a big hit.

Pumpkin Spice Lotion Bars - The Herbal Healing Mama

These cute little pumpkin faces came from our local Dollarama but you can get them HERE if you don’t have one local to you. They are actually for putting on your beverages. OR you could get really creative and make some up on PicMonkey and print them out!

You can use my label if you’d like:

Pumpkin Spice Lotion Bar Labels

I updated a version to bring in some pumpkin spice colours in case you have a colour printer. I run a monochrome laser printer so I never print in colour.

You can bring it into Picmonkey to make a printable collage to fit the size of your lotion bars.

TO USE:

You can either rub the bar directly on skin and massage in or you can rub the bar between your hands and rub onto skin. The bar will start to ‘melt’ and release it’s nourishing benefits once warmed by your skin. This could also be used as a massage bar.


If you’d like more of an orange tint you can try:

    Hi – I’d really like to try this but I can’t seem to figure out how to make the pumpkin spice infused oil. I’ve tried to infuse dry flowers into oils in the past but I’m not sure how to do with spices… Help 🙂 Can’t wait to try these….

      Hi Melissa. Did you check out the link to infusing your own oils? 🙂 I think it’s pretty helpful. I should however create posts for each oil I infuse. The link has different ways of infusing but basically just put your spice in an airtight jar and cover with oil. Let it infuse naturally in a sunny windowsill or speed infuse using heat. Sometimes I find the easiest way to do it is add it all into a pan and let it heat together for a while, cool, strain & jar. 🙂 Hopefully this helps.
