Rose Petal Bath Bombs

For a few years now, I have been making DIY spa products to enhance the soothing and relaxing experience, including these scented bath salts, lavender bath bombs, lavender vanilla soaps, and now I am sharing with you the Rose Petal Bath Bombs recipe.

At Home Spa

Are you looking forward to relaxing in your bathtub and spend some quality “Me Time” away from the kids and your every day life for at least 30 minutes? My weekly spa time at home is important for my sanity, well-being, and mental health, on top of relaxing my muscles. It’s part of my self-care routine that so many of us “moms” seem to neglect. I am more calm and definitely less stressed afterwards.

Tips

  1. They are super easy to make and are ideal for gifts on Mother’s Day, birthdays, or Christmas.
  2. These Rose Peal Bath Bombs don’t have an overpowering rose smell and will leave your skin feeling soft and silky. I used rose fragrance oil, but if you are into essential oils, you can try using rose geranium oil instead.
  3. Simply add 1 bath bomb to the bath water and let dissolve. I would recommend removing the rose petals from the bathtub before you drain the water.
  4. To create a relaxing atmosphere, don’t forget to add soothing music, scented candles, and to drink your favourite beverage or alcoholic drink!

How to Make The Rose Petal Bath Bombs

3. Pour the olive oil, water, fragrance oil, and soap colorant into a jar. Secure the lid and shake well to form the colour.

4. 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.

5. Once all of the liquid has been poured into the dry mixture, mix very well until the colour is consistent. 

6. Add the rose petals and give the mixture a quick stir.

7. Immediately fill the molds with the mixture, firmly stuffing each side full.

8. Secure both parts of the mold together and let set. I always give it about a day, just to be on the safe side.

9. Carefully release bath bombs from molds and put into an airtight container, or individual cello bags.

  1. These look lovely. We actually have little tea roses in the garden. Maybe next year my son and I can try our hands at drying some!
