Bath Bomb – Rose Petals

Bath Bomb – Rose Petals

Use rose petals to make 7 medium sized bath bombs with this natural recipe

What you need

1 1/4 cups of Baking soda or Bicarbonate of Soda
1/2 cup of Citric acid
2 tsp of Almond Oil or Apricot kernel oil
1/4 cup of Dried lavender
1/2-2 tbs Water
5 drops of Food coloring or Bath bomb mica

10-15 drops of Rose fragrant oil or essential oil
1/4 cup of Dried rose petals


Combine the dry ingredients, including the rose petals, in a bowl and stir until well mixed.

Drizzle in the almond oil and stir until mixture is moistened. Add more oil and fragrance and stir until well mixed.

If the mixture is crumbly then add more oil or a dash of water. Roll the mixture into a ball using your hands or press it into a lightly oiled mold. Use a bath bomb mold or a chocolate mold.

Let it slip out from the mold and then put the ball/shape on a sheet of wax paper and leave it to dry till it is hard. It may take several days.

Store them in a airtight container. Use 1 bath bomb per bath.

When we make our own DIY Bath Bombs we use and highly recommend this bath bomb mold for making single bath bombs or if you are making multiple bath bombs you may want to check out these silicon multi bath bomb molds and even a bath bomb press if you intend on making hundreds of Bath bombs for selling or gifts.
