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!
