I really wanted to use some rose pedals in a project and I also LOVE bath salts so I thought this little recipe would be an awesome combo. It is! These rose bath salts smell good, look beautiful, and help your bath be even more helpful to your sore and achey muscles.
I am Anna from Practical and Pretty but am very excited to share this bath salts recipe with you today. Bath salts are one of my very favorite things to DIY because they are so easy to assemble and even easier to customize.
What You Need for Your Rose Bath Salts
- Epsom Salts (2 cups)
- Essential oils of your choice (rose is an obvious choice but lavender and lemongrass are also amazing in the bath)
- Mason jar or other container for the salts
- Transfer tape
- Dried rose pedals
Start by drying your rose pedals if they aren’t already. You could even blend them in fresh if you wanted and let them dry overtime!
Next you will whisk your salts gently for a bit. This just gets out the clumps so the oils can evenly disperse.
Now you will add your oils. I have used a carrier oil before (coconut oil) but have learned that that makes the salts chunkier and harder to get out of the jar. I haven’t really noticed a difference in the smell either so I have just been doing it without! If you have DoTerra or other really pure oils, you will only need about 10 drops. If you’re using a more diluted oil, you may need about double that amount.
Mix these together until the oils are evenly dispersed.
Add the rose pedals and mix with your hands.
I opted for rose gold foil vinyl for obvious reasons! Any vinyl would really work though.
Put this on with your transfer tape and you are all done.
I love the look of these rose baths salts but I especially love bathing in bath salts. How perfect would this be as a gift for your girlfriends for Galentine’s Day too?
