What makes Bath Bombs Unique?
The color, texture, scent, and, of course, the “BOMB” are really what makes bath bombs unique. You may have seen my recipe for a Green Matcha Bath Bombs, where I use matcha powder for natural green color.
This rose garden DIY bath bomb recipe uses beet powder for natural pink color with a combination of dried rose petals. The classic scent of rose blended with eucalyptus essential oil creates an irresistible, ultra-indulgent treat – you’ve got to try!
Rose Petal DIY Bath Bombs Ingredients:
- ½ cup baking soda
- ⅛ cup arrowroot powder
- 2 teaspoons beetroot powder
- ¼ cup citric acid
- ⅛ cup pink Himalayan salt, fine
- 1 teaspoon rosehip oil
- 3 teaspoons sweet almond oil
- 3 drops eucalyptus essential oil
- 1 tablespoon dried rose petals
- 1 to 2 teaspoons witch hazel
- set of bath bomb molds
How to Make Rose Petal Bath Bombs:
- Add baking soda, arrowroot powder, citric acid, and pink Himalayan salt to a large glass mixing bowl. Whisk to blend and remove any clumps.
- Add beetroot powder for a natural pink color to dry the mixture. And whisk once more to combine into the dry mixture.
- 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.
- After combining mixtures, scoop a small amount into your hand and squeeze it together to test the consistency.
- It should stick together and hold its shape. If the mixture is too dry and powdery, add a ½ teaspoon of witch hazel or water. Then mix well and test again. Repeat until you have the correct consistency.
- Once the bath bomb mixture is ready, place a pinch of dried rose petals in the base of one half of a bath bomb mold (this is the set of bath bomb molds I use, they never fail).
- Scoop each side of the bath bomb mold into the mixture until it’s just overflowing. Then press together and let stand 2 minutes.
I recommend using multiple bath bomb molds so you can keep going while the others are setting.
- 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.
- Allow bath bombs to dry uncovered 8 hours or overnight. Once dry, store in a dry place or container until use.
Yields: 6 large bath 5 oz bombs or 12 to 15 small 2 oz bath bombs

I made a large batch of these rose petal DIY bath bombs and gave most away as a gift. And everyone was in awe! The rose and eucalyptus scent fills the bathroom, while rose petals float on top of the water and pink Himalayan salt relaxes tired muscles.
They are a spa-like indulgence you won’t soon forget. If you love the scent of rose, find it my recipe for an all natural garden infused perfume.
Oh those sound and look amazing! I definitely want to give this a try!
Thanks Ruth, they are certainly beautiful and a treat to use!
I can almost smell this and can’t wait to try. Can you please tell me where you purchase the ingredients for this recipe. Essential oils, beet root etc.
They are a treat, no doubt! I got my essentials from Young Living and my beet powder from my local natural foods store. You can get it from Whole Foods or use the link in the recipe to order from Amazon.
