Rose Petal Bath Bomb

These Rose Peal Bath Bombs don’t have an overpowering rose smell and will leave your skin feeling soft and silky. I would recommend removing the rose petals from the bathtub before your drain the water. Simply add to bath water and let dissolve. To create a relaxing atmosphere, don’t forget to add soothing music, scented candles, and to drink your favourite beverage or alcoholic drink!

Equipment

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

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Epsom salt
  • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • 1/4 cup corn starch
  • 1/4 cup 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

Instructions

  • 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.
  • Pour the olive oil, water, fragrance oil and soap colorant into a jar. Secure the lid and shake well to form the colour.
  • 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.
  • Once all of the liquid has been poured into the dry mixture, mix very well until the colour is consistent. 
  • Add the rose petals and give the mixture a quick stir.
  • Immediately fill the molds with the mixture, firmly stuffing each side full.
  • Secure both parts of the mold together and let set. I always give it about a day, just to be on the safe side.
  • Carefully release bath bombs from molds and put into an airtight container, or individual cello bags.
