Moms love beauty products! And, Lush never gets more expensive than $20…not to mention, they work great. I got my mom the blueberry face mask, but they’re charcoal soaps work surprisingly well too!

DIY rose bath bombs

DIY Bath bombs made of rose and lavender

If you can’t afford Lush, or you just want to do a little extra…you can use this recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup baking soda
  • ½ cup citric acid
  • ½ cup cornstarch
  • ¼ cup dry milk
  • 3 tablespoons Epsom salt
  • a handful of dried rose petals
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 2 tablespoons almond oil
  • 15-20 drops rose oil
  1. Mix together the baking soda, citric acid, cornstarch, milk powder and Epsom salt.
  2. Separate from the dry ingredients, mix the water, almond oil, and rose and lavender oils together.
  3. Slowly mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. You may need to add a couple of extra drops of almond oil so that the mixture sticks together without crumbling.
  4. Your bath bombs are ready to be placed into the rose silicon molds once you can make a ball with the mixture and it doesn’t fall apart.
  5. Fill your rose-shaped silicon molds with the rose and lavender bath bomb mixture. Let the bath bombs sit in a dry, safe place at room temperature for a minimum of 3-4 hours before attempting to remove them. Note: Letting them sit even longer will help them to solidify in the molds.
  6. Once you’ve let your bath bombs sit for a few hours, remove them from the silicon molds and place them into a mason jar sprinkled with leftover rose and lavender petals. Place a bow around the jar and you’re ready to give these fun DIY bath bombs to someone special!
