Rose Petal Bath Bomb Recipe



For this bath bomb recipe, you will need:

Dry Ingredients:
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup citric acid
1/2 cup corn starch
1/3 cup Epsom salts

Wet Ingredients:
2 1/2 tablespoon light oil of your choice (sweet almond oil, grapeseed, etc.)
3/4 tablespoon water
2 teaspoons dried rose petals
15 to 20 drops Rose essential oil or fragrance oil
1/4 teaspoon borax
5 to 10 drops liquid food coloring
spray bottle filled with witch hazel or water

To create these bath bombs…

Measure out the first four dry ingredients, combine in a sifter, and sift together until smooth.

If you are using sea salt or Epsom salt, add it to the dry mixture after sifting. Epsom salts seem to shorten the drying time, tend to give your bath bombs a bit of shine, and makes the fizzing action more vigorous.

Set the dry ingredient mixture aside while you prepare the wet ingredient.

Measure and combine all the wet ingredients, including the borax, in a small clean jar; cover tightly and shake vigorously.

Slowly drizzle the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring constantly to prevent the fizzing starting. Make sure you mix in all of the wet ingredients. The mixture should be damp enough to hold together when pressed in your hand. If needed, mist with witch hazel or water. Make sure the bath bomb mixture is mixed thoroughly.

Work fast to press the mixture into your molds or it will dry out too much before you mold it. If you are using a 2-part sphere, fill each side and then press together. Let bombs dry in the mold for a few hours. Larger spheres may need more drying time.

Remove from mold and let dry for 1 week before use. Cover with tissue paper and store in an airtight container.
