Creating Rose Petal DIY Bath Bombs

Create DIY bath bombs with real roses. Drop a rose petal bath bomb in your next bath for an ultra-indulgent rose bath!

Picture yourself sinking into a fragrant bathtub of delicate rose petals, as if Mother Nature herself has granted you an invitation to her floral sanctuary.

Inspired by a recent Valentine’s floral workshop where I immersed myself in the art of arranging blooms, I couldn’t resist the urge to bring that botanical beauty into my self-care routine. With tips on selecting the freshest flowers, prepping stems with care, and blending fragrant eucalyptus with the timeless allure of roses, I set out to create bath bombs that capture the essence of a blooming garden.

Infused with real roses, complemented by the invigorating aroma of eucalyptus, these DIY bath bombs are more than just a treat for the senses—they’re a gesture of love and self-appreciation.

So, why wait for Valentine’s Day to treat yourself to a luxurious rose bath experience? With a splash of pink perfection, you can slip into the decadence of a rose embrace, letting your cares drift away on a sea of petals.

The color, texture, scent, and, of course, the “BOMB” are really what makes bath bombs unique. But there’s more to these DIY bath bombs than the fizzing action they create.

Beet Root Powder

You may have seen my recipe for a Green Matcha Bath Bombs, where I use matcha powder for a natural green color. I opted for the vibrant hue and natural nutrients of beetroot powder to infuse these bath bombs with a gorgeous rosy color.

Rich in antioxidants and vitamins, beetroot powder not only adds a visually stunning element to your bath bombs but also nourishes your skin, leaving it feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

Fine Pink Himalayan Salt

Indulge your senses with the delicate pink hues and soothing properties of fine pink Himalayan salt. Not only does it lend a soft blush to your bath bombs, but it also helps to relax tired muscles and detoxify your skin.

It’s just the thing to immerse yourself in a luxurious soak, as the gentle exfoliating action of this mineral-rich salt leaves your skin feeling silky, smooth, and replenished!

Rosehip Seed Oil

Experience the luxurious hydration and rejuvenating properties of rosehip seed oil. Extracted from the seeds of rose bushes, this exquisite oil is packed with vitamins, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids, making it a potent ingredient for nourishing and revitalizing your skin.

Incorporating rosehip oil into your bath bombs ensures a pampering experience that leaves your skin glowing with health and radiance.

Dried Rose Petals

Elevate your bath time ritual with the timeless elegance of dried rose petals. Not only do they impart a delightful fragrance to your bath bombs, but they also add a touch of romance and luxury to your bathing experience.

Let the delicate petals float atop the water, creating a visually stunning garden bed as you immerse yourself in a fragrant sea of roses.

Rose Witch Hazel

Harness the natural astringent and soothing properties of rose witch hazel to pamper your skin and calm your senses. Infused with the delicate scent of roses, this botanical extract helps to tone and tighten your skin while reducing inflammation and redness.

Incorporating rose witch hazel into your bath bombs ensures a gentle and nurturing experience that leaves your skin feeling refreshed and revitalized.

Arrowroot Powder

Achieve the perfect balance of firmness and fizziness in your bath bombs with arrowroot powder. This natural thickening agent helps to bind the ingredients together, ensuring that your bath bombs hold their shape and dissolve gracefully in the water.

—>YES, you can say “GOODBYE” to crumbly bath bombs and “HELLO” to a luxurious bathing experience that’s both indulgent and long-lasting.

Eucalyptus Essential Oil

Invigorate your senses and soothe your mind with the unexpected, refreshing aroma of eucalyptus essential oil in a rose bath bomb. Known for its purifying and clarifying properties, eucalyptus oil helps to ease muscle tension and promote relaxation.

Create these unique DIY bath bombs infused with this list of garden-infused ingredients, each one a tiny bouquet of bliss awaiting its moment to bloom in your tub.

  3. Next, in a small mixing bowl, combine rosehip oil, sweet almond oil, and eucalyptus essential oil. Then, slowly the wet mixture into the dry mixture, whisking as you go. If the mixture begins to fizz or foam, slow down.
  4. After combining mixtures, scoop a small amount into your hand and squeeze it together to test the consistency.
  5. It should stick together and hold its shape. If the mixture is too dry and powdery, add ½ teaspoon of witch hazel. Then mix well and test again. Repeat until you have the correct consistency.

  7. Then scoop each side of the bath bomb mold into the mixture until it’s just overflowing. Press together and let stand for 2 minutes.
  8. Once set, gently release the bath bomb onto a cutting board or cookie sheet. (If the bath bomb cracks while removing it, scoop a little more mixture and press together again.)
