[ Edit ] Ingredients
[ Edit ] Rose Petal Bath Salts
- 1 cup (128 g) Epsom salt
- 1.5 cups (192 g) Himalayan salt
- 1 tbsp (14 g) baking powder
- 4 to 8 drops of rose essential oil  Edit ] Step
[ Edit ] Dry and grind fresh rose petals
- Select roses that have not been sprayed with pesticides. Since you will be bathing with these roses, it is important to buy ones that have not sprayed any kind of chemicals on them. Try to find those who say "organic" so you know they are chemical-free. 
- The color of the roses doesn't matter, so keep up with whatever you like.
- You can also use jasmine or lavender flowers if you want different scents or colors.
- Cut the roses after the morning dew has dried. Wait until mid-morning or early afternoon to collect your roses to make sure that dew from the night has dried. This will ensure that your rose petals are not moist so they dry out better. 
- Rinse off your roses and remove the petals stem. Run your roses under cold water to get rid of any bugs or dirt. Carefully remove the petals from the stems and watch for the thorns as you do. 
- If any petals look discolored or torn, throw them away.
- Spread 1-2 cups (128-256 g) of petals on a tray and let them dry for 4-5 days. Spread your rose petals in a thin layer on a baking sheet. Leave them on a flat surface in your home for 4 to 5 days until all the petals look discolored, cracked and smaller than when they started. 
- You can also buy dried rose petals in some home goods stores.
- Mix your dried roses for 1-2 minutes until they look like confetti. Pour your dried roses into a blender and pulse them 10-15 times. Stop mixing when your rose petals look like shredded pieces of confetti. 
- If you used dried rose petals, you do not need to mix them.
[ Edit ] Combining the ingredients
- Mix Epsom salt, Himalayan salt and baking powder in a bowl. Combine 1 cup (128 g) Epsom salt, 1.5 cups (192 g) Himalayan salt and 1 tbsp (14 g) baking powder. Mix them a little with a wooden spoon to make sure they are evenly combined. 
- You can use regular sea salt instead of Himalayan salt if you want your bath salts to be white instead of pink.
- Essential Oil Is Super Concentrated. Excessive use may cause skin irritation.
- You can also use 4 to 8 drops of essential oil with vanilla or lavender essential oil instead of essential oil to mix the scent of the bath salt.
- Pour the dried petals into the salt mixture. Pour in your mixed rose petals and mix your bath salts with a wooden spoon. Try to combine the petals evenly throughout the mixture so that the whole thing smells and looks the same. 
[ Edit ] Storage and use of bath salts
- Store your bath salts in an airtight container in a cool, dry place for up to 2 years. As long as your bath salts do not get wet, they will not be bad. You can keep them for a couple of years until they start to lose their freshness, so mark them with the date you made them before you put them away. 
- Try to keep your bath salt in a cool, dry place, like your kitchen cabinet, instead of your damp bathroom.
- Use 2 grams (56 g) of bath salts per bath to make it smell and feel nice. Put your bath salts in a warm bath with water when you want a little more relaxation or soothing smell. Epsom salt is great for reducing inflammation, and rose oil is great for quenching your skin tone and reducing redness. 
- Try using your rose flowers in a bathtub when feeling sore or aching.
- Do not use your bath salts more than once a week to avoid skin irritation. 
- Stop using bath salts and talk to your doctor if you get skin irritation or rash. 
- Pour the bath salts into a clear glass jar for a gift. Try to stick to jars that are quite small so you don't let go of all your bath salts at once. Pick jars that have airtight lids so you can transport bath salts and store them in the jar. 
- Most grocery stores have clear glass jars in the preservation section.
- Print a small note to attach to your gift. Cut out a small square of cardboard or construction paper and then punch a hole in the corner. Use a marker to print "Thank you," "Happy Birthday," or "Happy Valentine's Day." 
- You can even draw a cute picture on the note if you wish.
- Attach the note to the can with a ribbon for extra decoration. Cut out a long band. Wrap the tape around the jar and thread the punched area of the card through one end of the tape. Tie the ribbon with a bow on the front of the jar. 
- Most craft companies have ribbons for sale.
