LUX Get Clean: DIY Rose Milk Bath Bomb
Bath bombs are a true treat! They provide a fun luxurious addition to a nice soak. Here's how the magic happens... When placed under the running bath water, they start to fizz up and leave your water with a subtle and sweet fragrance! Sometimes they even turn your bath water colors depending on the bomb.
Not only are they a fragrant way to enhance an already pleasurable activity in the tub, but there's something extra special about them. This particular bath bomb is made with dried rose petals, milk powder and rose essential oil. All hail the Queen!
The milk powder gives your skin a silky soft feel, while the rose essential oil enhances the rose petal fragrance. I think it's safe to say, Me Time just got way better!
1 cup baking soda
½ cup Citric Acid
½ cup cornstarch
¼ cup Dy Milk
3 tablespoons Epsom salt
handful dried rose petals
1 teaspoon water
3-4 teaspoons Almond Oil
15-20 drops Rose Oil
- In a large bowl combine baking soda, citric acid, cornstarch, milk powder, and Epsom salt. Add rose petals that have been cut into small pieces.
- In a small cup or bowl stir together water, almond oil, and rose essential oil.
- Combine wet ingredients with dry mixture. Test mixture by grabbing a handful and making a fist. If it holds it’s shape it’s ready to be placed in the mold. If it’s too dry (the mixture crumbles once you open your fist) use a spray bottle to LIGHTLY spray water 1-2 times, until you can form a shape. Do not overs pray or the mixture will begin to fizz and not form correctly.
- Use plastic ornament molds to make the bath bombs. I like to over fill each half then press them together until the excess falls out. This way you’ll have a compact bath bomb that won’t fall apart when you open the mold. You can also use silicone molds to make small bath bombs. This recipe make 3 medium bath bombs or 2 medium and 8 small bath bomb fizzies.
- Leave bath bombs to dry overnight before removing from mold. Allow them to dry on a towel for a few hours before using or wrapping.
