In my opinion, Lush products are overly expensive and if you know-how, you can make them at home for pennies on the dollar. For instance, I can show you how to make my Copy Cat Lush Tumeric Latte Bath Bombs and save you about $7.50. You can take that extra money and buy yourself a few goodies from Starbucks instead!
Copy Cat Lush Turmeric Latte Bath Bombs
Skin Care Benefits of Turmeric
Tumeric has been shown to have health and skin benefits so I figured why not add it into a bath bomb. *My research shows that Tumeric contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory components. It can be good for tightening your pores, evening out skin tone, soothe acne and psoriasis.
Turmeric Latte Bath Bomb and Glowing Skin
I also read that bathing with a product that has turmeric, like my DIY bath bomb, may even help fight against aging and sun damage. As someone who is knocking on the door of 60 and has been in the sun more than she should have, this appeals to me. And if I can get a bit of a glow to my skin to boot? Count me in!
A Soak With A Turmeric Bath Bombs Is Magical
For me, a nice hot bath and a glass of wine (or your drink of choice!) and some music is exactly what I need to refresh my mind, body, and spirit. A soak in the tub with one of my delicious smelling Turmeric Latte bath bombs is like self-care magic! And it is so easy to make a copy cat Lush bath bomb too!

Women Desperately Need Self-Care
One of the struggles I have had with the pandemic has been self-care. I have been so worried about my family’s well being that I tend to let mine fall to the wayside. Dare I say you do that too? Lots of women tend to do this and when we get to the point where our tanks are about empty, we realize we need to fill them up before we run out of fuel!
Copy Cat Lush Bath Bombs Supplies:
• 2 cups baking soda
• 1 cup powdered coconut milk
• 1/4 cup cornstarch
• 1.4 cup Epsom salts
• 1/3 cup coconut oil
• 1 tablespoon jojoba oil
• 2 tablespoons turmeric powder
• 10-20 drops Tonka essential oil
• 10-20 drops vanilla essential oil
• Stainless steel bath bomb molds
• Spray bottle filled with rubbing alcohol
• 1 large mixing bowl
Handmade Turmeric Bath Bomb Instructions:
Step 1: In a large mixing bowl, add the baking soda, coconut milk, Epsom salts, and cornstarch.
Step 2: Whisk dry ingredients together.
Step 3: Add the coconut oil. This binds all the ingredients together, so your bath bombs don’t crumble when you touch them! Add essential oils and jojoba oil.
Steps 4-5: Mix ingredients thoroughly. You may need to use your hands to break down any lumps and make sure everything is mixed in. The mixture is perfect when it holds together when you press it into your hands and feels like wet sand. Mix in the dried turmeric powder.
Step 6: Fill both sides of the mold with the mixture, press molds together, and grind to remove the excess mixture. Gently tap each side of the mold to release the bombs. To avoid the bombs breaking during the drying phase, I put them in a mini muffin tin. They fit perfectly!
Allow drying a minimum of 24 hours. If your climate is wet or cold, allow an additional 24 hours. My rule of thumb is that when it is hard to the touch, they are ready for the tub! Store in an airtight container until ready for use.
