Rose Bath Bomb Recipe: Prepare and Sanitize

Before you begin working on your rose bath bomb recipe you may want to make a few preparations. First, make sure that you have all of the ingredients and equipment that you’re going to need for this recipe. Further, you may want to clean your equipment to make sure it is ready to use. Second, you will need to clear and clean a space for you to work. This can be a table, counter top, or any surface that provides enough room to create these bath bombs. Lastly, you will want to add some witch hazel to the spray bottle, as you will need this towards the end of the bath bomb recipe.

Rose Bath Bomb Recipe: Create the Dry Ingredient MixtureRose Bath Bomb Recipe: Create the Dry Ingredient Mixture

First, you are going to want to prepare all of the dry ingredients. So, grab one of the medium mixing bowls and a scale. You will need to weigh out 300 grams of the Citric Acid
and 600 grams of the Baking Soda. Additionally, you will need to include an herb powder. So, weigh 10 grams of the Bentonite Clay Powder and add it to the mixture.

After all of these cosmetic ingredients are added to the bowl, you will need to mix them together well. So, you will need to use a gloved hand to blend everything together evenly. Also, make sure that you break up all the clumps that may have formed. Once everything is evenly mixed, you can set this bowl aside and move on to the next step.

Rose Bath Bomb Recipe: Preparing the Wet Ingredients

Next, you will need to prepare the wet ingredients for this recipe. So, you will need another medium mixing bowl. Then, you will need to add the cosmetic oil and the fragrance oil. First, measure 18 grams of the Burgundy Rose Fragrance Oil and add it to the bowl. Then, weigh and add the 18 grams of the Jojoba Oil. After these two lovely ingredients are added to the bowl you can move on to the next step.

Rose Bath Bomb Recipe: Combine the Wet and Dry IngredientsRose Bath Bomb Recipe: Combine the Wet and Dry Ingredients

Now you are ready to combine both the wet and dry ingredient mixtures. Once you add your oils to the dry ingredients you will need to mix everything together. So, use a gloved hand to fully incorporate all of the ingredients. Again, make sure to break up any clumps that form. Once the ingredients are evenly dispersed throughout the mixture, you can set the bowl aside and move on to the next step in the process.

Rose Bath Bomb Recipe: Adding the Cosmetic Herb

Next, you are going to be working with the red rose buds and petals. For this recipe we are going to add the herb to one end of the recipe and not have any rose petals mixed into the bath bomb dough mixture. Since we are going to have the rose petals in one place in the bath bomb, we are going to add this herb to the bath bomb mold first. So, you will need to put a pinch of the  dried rose buds herb into each of the six bath bomb mold halves. 

One thing to pay attention to is that the bath bomb molds have a top and a bottom. So, you will want to be sure that you choose the same side from each of your bath bomb molds, which means that they will all look the exact same. This is important to make sure that you don’t mess up the half and half appearance. Otherwise, you could end up with a bath bomb that doesn’t have any of this cosmetic herb.

Rose Bath Bomb Recipe: Spraying the Bath Bomb Mixture

Now, you are ready to prepare the bath bomb mixture for the bath bomb molds wholesale. So, you will begin spraying the mixture with your bottle of witch hazel. As you spray the mixture you will need to mix everything together with gloved hands. This will ensure that the witch hazel is being full incorporated and help prevent one area from getting sprayed too much. If you add too much of this ingredient at one time, then you can end up accidentally activating your other ingredients in the bowl. This can hinder the performance of your bath bombs so you will want to be careful and spray slowly. You will know that you can stop once the mixture reaches a certain consistency. Once the mixture gets to be the consistency of crumbly dough, you can move on to the next step.

Rose Bath Bomb Recipe: Filling the Bath Bomb Molds

After, you are ready to fill your bath bomb molds. So, take the half of the molds with the rose petals. You will need to pack the dough mixture into the bath bomb tightly. Once all six of these molds are filled, you can move on to filling the other half of the mold. Again, you will need to pack the mixture into the mold very tightly. This will ensure that the ingredients stick together and that the bath bomb holds its shape after being removed from the mold. Once all the ingredients are packed into the molds, you are ready to move on to the last step in making your bath bombs.

Rose Bath Bomb Recipe: Rose Bath Bomb Recipe: Finishing Up the Bath Bombs

Finally, you are nearly done with your homemade bath bomb recipe. Now, you will need to combine the two halves of each bath bomb mold. So, lightly spray each half with witch hazel. One half should have the dried rosebuds in it and the other should be just white bath bomb. Then, you can press the two halves together until that mold snaps shut. Once the mold is going to stay shit, you can set the bath bomb in a place where it can set up completely. Now, you will need to repeat this step with all the bath bomb mold halves. After, you should have six bath bombs that are setting up. This part of the process can take anywhere from a few days to a couple weeks. It all depends on the humidity level that day and the typical levels of your climate.

However, you will know that your bath bombs are set up once they have completely hardened. At this point they are finally ready to use! So, you can pop the bath bombs out of the mold and use them right then for a lovely bath experience. Also, you can use you bath bomb packaging ideas to prepare them for storage. Alternatively, you can leave the bath bomb in the mold until it is ready to be used.
