I have a neighbor that needed a pick-me up, so I figured out how to make rose petal bath bombs, just so I could bring her a little burst of rose fragrance along with a reason for self-care.
Bath Bombs with Rose Petals
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we truly value, especially now, the few minutes that we get alone in the bathroom with a fizzy and a hot tub. Frankly, those few minutes…they’re what keeps me grounded lately. So, when I heard my neighbor was having a rough go of it, I really felt like she needed a little time to herself. And giving her a bath bomb? That’s me, giving her an excuse to spend some time in the bath, taking care of herself.
Now, I know that not everyone gets to find a few minutes alone in the tub, but there’s something about having a bath bomb that just gives you an excuse. I love it. And I hope she does, too. If you’re ready to love having (or giving) some pretty bath bombs with rose petals, let’s get started.

Tips to Make Rose Bath Bombs
- These rose petal bath bombs are so easy to make and actually kind of fun. Despite how hard they might look–they’re not. Just check out the directions below and get to making!
- Be sure to let these rose bath bombs dry for at least 24 hours to get the most fizzy for your effort. Plus, if you have a little mix-up when you’re making your mix and it got a little wetter than necessary, drying your bath bombs will typically work that out.
- To make sure your bath fizzies are at top-fizzy-potential, be certain to store them in an air-tight container. And, if you’re gifting them to a friend or neighbor, put them in an airtight container, too, so you’re gifting the best fizzies.
- As always, you are free to put as much fragrance and colorant into these awesome rose petal bath bombs as you’d like–they’re your bath fizzies. But never, and I mean never use food coloring–no only will that color your skin and the bathtub, but they’ll all require scrubbing afterward which defeats the point of a bath. So, stick with soap colorant or mica powders, it’s easier to clean up.
- This lush bath bomb (well, lush-inspired) is a bath bomb mixture made of essential oil, citric acid, and a little bit of water (with some other ingredients), all mixed together in a large bowl. That’s seriously all there is to it. So, if you’re having trouble getting one to hold it’s shape, its likely because it’s not wet enough. Add a little water and try again. But if you’re still having trouble, see this article on trouble-shooting bath bombs and shower fizzies to find out your options to remake them.
How Do I Make Bath Bombs with Rose Petals?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1/2 cup citric acid
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 1/4 cup solid coconut oil
- Rose essential oil
- Pink mica powder
- Dried roses
- Spray bottle of rubbing alcohol
- 1 large mixing bowl
- Bath Bombs molds
- Add all of your dry ingredients to a large bowl and whisk them together.
- To the whisked together dry ingredients, add the mica powder, essential oil and about 1/8 of a cup of the dried rose petals. If you need to make your rose petals smaller and easier to manage, you can put them in the food processor to break them down some.
- Whisk together the mixture again until it feels like wet sand and can be pressed together and it stays together. To make the mixture wet enough, you may want to spray it with the rubbing alcohol.
- Add a small pinch of roses to one side of a mold and then pack in the bath bomb mixture on top of it until the mold is overflowing. Add the bath bomb mixture to the other mold and fully press the two halves of the bath bomb mold together, using a twisting and grinding motion. After you have the bath bomb mold together, gently tap the top of each mold and gently pull the bomb from mold. Place the bath bombs onto parchment paper lined baking sheet. Allow the bath bombs to dry fully. Store in an airtight container until ready to use.
