Today I’m focused on sharing this delightful rose petal bath bombs recipe to help relax your mind and body.

What do bath bombs do to your body?

If you’re wondering what bath bombs do to your body then you’ll be happy to know that bath bombs provide dry skin relief and mood-enhancing properties. These rose petal bath bombs will provide you with the delightful fragrance of roses which helps to relax your mind and body. All the while the other ingredients blend together to provide your skin with nutrients to help keep skin soft.

How many times can you use a bath bomb?

Most times a person uses one bath bomb per bath, but you may find that using half of one of my rose petal bath bombs does the trick. Bath bombs are meant to be a one-use option to increase your state of relaxation during your daily bath session. The bath bombs will melt away into the water and ultimately disappear leaving you with only a trace of dried rose petals to make you feel like royalty.

These rose petal bath bombs are an excellent DIY bath bombs recipe to give for Mother’s Day. Consider making some of these homemade bath bombs for that special woman in your life so that you can wrap them in a beautiful gift wrap package to present to her on Mother’s Day.

Rose Petal Bath Bombs

Ingredients:

  • 2 oz Epsom salt
  • 4 oz baking soda
  • 2 oz corn starch
  • 2 oz citric acid
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tbsp water
  • 15-20 drops Rose fragrance oil
  • 1 drop Peach soap colorant
  • ¼ cup dried rose petals

Supplies:

  • Large bowl
  • Whisk
  • 3-4 medium size round bath bomb molds
  • Small jar with lid
  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring spoons

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, combine the Epsom salt, baking soda, cornstarch and citric acid. Mix well with a whisk, making sure to remove any clumps.
  2. Pour the olive oil, water, fragrance oil and soap colorant into a jar. Secure the lid and shake well to form the color.
  3. Very slowly add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture. Add just a few drops at a time, while continuously whisking. If you’re not pouring slowly enough and whisking while pouring, the mixture will start to fizz and the bath bombs won’t form correctly.
  4. Once all of the liquid has been poured into the dry mixture, mix very well until the color is consistent.
  5. Add the rose petals and give the mixture a quick stir.
  6. Immediately fill the molds with the mixture, firmly stuffing each side full.
  7. Secure both parts of the mold together and let set. I always give it about a day, just to be on the safe side.
  8. Carefully release bath bombs from molds and put into an airtight container, or individual cello bags.
