Ingredients for DIY Rose Bath Bombs
½ cup baking soda
⅛ cup arrowroot powder
2 teaspoons beetroot powder
¼ cup citric acid
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 DIY Rose Bath Bombs
Add baking soda, arrowroot powder, citric acid, and pink himalayan salt to large glass mixing bowl. Whisk to blend and remove any clumps. Add beetroot powder for a natural pink color. In small mixing bowl combine rosehip oil, sweet almond oil, and eucalyptus 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 it’s 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. Continue to add a pinch of dried rose petals to one half of each bath bomb. 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 hour 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
