12 Best Fall Scents for Bath Bombs

The best thing about making your own bath bombs? You can give them whatever scent you want.

There’s a scent for every mood and every feeling. And if there’s one season that gives us all the feels, it’s fall.

When Summer officially changed into Fall I was still in denial. The sun was shining, birds chirping, and walking around the city with a gelato in your hand was still considered acceptable. No way this beautiful weather would end any time soon.

Until this weekend. Sweater weather is back and with a vengeance. Chilly winds and a non stop down pour of rain have replaced those beautiful sun clad days.

I’ve already delt with that change of the seasons flu, and now all I want to do is snuggle up with a warm matcha latte in front of a laptop with a Netflix account.

Another fall favorite of mine? Taking long baths with delicious smelling bath bombs!

And what season smells better than fall? Think pumpkin spice lattes, apple cinnamon pie and hot chocolate with lots of whipped cream.

Here’s a selection of my favorite fall scents for bath bombs to bring the coziness of fall into your bath room!

Fall Scents for Bath Bombs

Essential Oils

My favorite way to scent bath bombs is by using essential oils.

Start with a basic bath bomb recipe and add about 15 drops of essential oil to the dry ingredients. Choose 1 essential oil you love or pair a few together to create your own unique scent.

1. Cinnamon

Cinnamon reminds me of warm apple pie. Its sweet, invigorating scent makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Cinnamon is a very powerful essential oil. Just a few drops is enough to make your bath bomb smell heavenly.

I used a few drops of cinnamon essential oil in my Gingerbread House Bath Bombs recipe.

2. Sweet Orange

Another sweet essential oil that works great in a bath bomb is Sweet Orange.

3. Vanilla

You can find vanilla as an essential or a fragrance oil.

This scent needs no introduction. It reminds me of fall desserts and hot spiced lattes.

You can use vanilla on its own, or pair it with another oil you like.

4. Earthy Essential Oils

There’s a whole bunch of earthy or woodsy smelling essential oils that make a great choice for a fall bath bomb.

Think Cedarwood, Clary sage, Sandalwood or Cypress.

They’ll make you feel like you’re wandering around in a forest, on small paved paths covered with yellow and orange fallen leaves.
