Naturally Crafty #5 How to Make Rose Petal Bath Salts

For my naturally crafty post this week I bring you …

How to make rose petal bath salts

I love to craft from nature and using a rose form my garden to make bath salts was a true delight. It is super simple to make your own bath salts and takes only a few minutes.



What you will need

Epsom salts (2 cups)

bicarbonate of soda (1 cup)

Rose oil (8-10 drops)

Rose petals (1-2 roses)

Airtight containers

Craft Labels

What to do

Spread your petals on kitchen towels with another layer on top. Zap in the microwave for 40 seconds to dry then whizz then up in a food processor.


Mix your epsom salts and bicarbonate of soda together

Add rose petals

Add 8-10 drops of  rose oil ( and a couple of drops of pink or red food colouring if you like – I like to keep it white)

Mix everything together well and add to your airtight container

I like hand written labels myself as I think they add to the home made from the heart look.


For bath time or birthdays

2 tablespoons of this in the bath and you will feel amazing! Some time out just for you. You could light a lovely rose scented candle too It really does make the loveliest of gifts too – thoughtful, thrifty, and homemade. Perfect for teacher thank you’s and special friends.

It is also really good for the skin and encourages relaxation. It ticks all the right boxes. Why don’t you get naturally crafty and make rose petal bath salts

And remember to let me know how you do get on if you give it a go ….
