How To Make Bath Bombs With Rose Petals?
It’s super easy to make bath bombs with rose petals.
All you have to do is add some dried petals to your bath bomb mixture and press tightly into a mold.
The result will be bath bombs that explode with stunning petals when dropped into water.
Ingredients Needed For Rose Bath Bombs
- 95g Bicarbonate of soda (Baking soda)
- 50g Citric acid
- 25g Cornstarch
- 25g Salt
- A handful of dried rose petals
- Rose essential oil
Tools Needed For Rose Bath Bombs
- Mixing bowl
- Bath Bomb Molds
- Water spray bottle
Rose Bath Bombs Method
Step 1. Mix dry ingredients
Measure out all your dry ingredients and mix in a bowl
Step 2. Add Scent To The Mixture
Add a few drops of your favorite rose fragrance oil to the dry ingredients and mix.
Step 3. Add Rose Petals
Add a handful of dried rose petals to the mixture. I recommend breaking a few of them up into smaller pieces.
Step 4. Add Water
Gradually spray the mixture with water whilst continuously stirring and mixing with your hands.
You need to continuously mix at this point as your mixture will begin to fizz if it becomes too wet!
Stop adding water when the mixture holds its shape when compressed in your hand.
Step 5. Mold Into Bath Bombs
Fill both halves of the bath bomb molds and push them together tightly.
Remove any excess rose petals that are protruding from the sides.
Step 6. Remove Bath Bomb From Mold
Immediately remove the bath bomb from the mold as it will expand and become too tight to remove.

Why Won’t My Bath Bombs Stay Together?
If your bath bombs were holding their shape well and then fell apart it’s likely because you used oil instead of water as your wet ingredient.
If you use oil as your wet ingredient then there’s a good chance your bath bombs will break… unless you store them in the fridge.
We recommend making bath bombs with water, as they’ll go rock hard quickly and will keep for months.
Add essential oil drops to give your bath bombs a delightful scent!
These beautifully scented rose bath bombs are super easy to make and will be the perfect way to create a rose petal-filled bath this Valentine’s day…
They’ll also make a delightful homemade gift for your family and friends!
