Rose Petal Bath Bombs

Rose Petal Bath Bombs

Instead of throwing away your old roses from Valentine's Day, turn them into bath bombs! Its a fun way to re-purpose those flowers and extend the romance.

What you need

  • 4 Tbsp Baking Soda
  • 2 Tbsp Epsom Salt
  • 2 Tbsp Citric Acid
  • 2 Tbsp Corn Starch
  • 1/2 tsp Coconut Oil (melted)
  • 1 tsp Water
  • 1/2 Tsp of Rose Essential Oil (or other favorite flavor)
  • Rose Petals
  • Cupcake Tin or Bath Bomb Mold

Mix together Baking Soda, Epsom Salt, Citric Acid,  and Corn Starch.  In other dish mix add melted Coconut Oil, Water, and Essential Oils together.  Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mix well. Use your hands to see if ingredients clump together when you squeeze it in your hand. 

Place your rose petals at the bottom of the mold. (Make sure they are completely dry because you bath bombs will start fizzing when it touches the roses.  It is okay though if it fizzes a little they will still work!) Take your bath bomb mixture and pack it in your mold.  Let your bombs dry for several hours before using!

DIY Ocean Salt Scrub

inspired by LUSH

DIY Ocean Scrub

 

 

For my first blog post I was inspired by this cold winter weather.  It leaves me with skin so dry and dreams of being at the beach. So I decided to share my DIY of Ocean Salt Scrub inspired by Lush. This scrub can be used as a body and facial scrub.  I love Lush products but my problem is my closest store is an hour away and some things can be a bit pricey.  So this DIY is a great alternative. Whats great about this scrub is that the ingredients are so beneficial to the skin. 

Besides salt being a great exfoliant by removing dead skin.  Avocado's fatty acids are very moisturizing to the skin. Witch hazel will remove excess oils and shrink pores (which is great when using it on your face!), it is also know to treat blemishes and fade bruises. Since lime is a citrus fruit, it is full of Vitamin C, citric acid, and flavonoids. This allows lime to have many benefits and is rejuvenating to the skin. The Coconut milk is full of natural proteins and vitamins that leave your skin feeling smooth and radiant.  So this scrub is perfect for when your skin is feeling dull and dry.
