How to make Rose Bath Bombs
Making your own bath bombs is very easy to do. This Rose bath bomb recipe is something I’ve been thinking about for a few months now. After a recent trip to Lush, I noticed that they had a rose and soy milk bath bomb and instantly fell in love! I knew I wanted to create my own with the addition of milk powder. The bath bomb is made with dried rose petals, milk powder, and rose essential oil. The milk powder gives your skin a silky soft feel while the rose essential oil enhances the rose petal fragrance.

DIY Rose Bath Bomb
- 1 cup baking soda
- ½ cup Citric Acid
- ½ cup cornstarch
- ¼ cup Dry Milk
- 3 tablespoons Epsom salt
- handful dried rose petals
- 1 teaspoon water
- 3-4 teaspoons Almond Oil
- 15-20 drops Rose oil
I made a quick video tutorial with the updated recipe – find the new recipe HERE.
- In a large bowl combine baking soda, citric acid, cornstarch, milk powder, and Epsom salt. Add rose petals that have been cut into small pieces.
- In a small cup or bowl stir together water, almond oil, and rose essential oil.
- Combine wet ingredients with dry mixture. Test mixture by grabbing a handful and making a fist. If it holds it’s shaping it’s ready to be placed in the mold. If it’s too dry (the mixture crumbles once you open your fist) use a spray bottle to LIGHTLY spray water 1-2 times, until you can form a shape. Do not overspray or the mixture will begin to fizz and not form correctly.
- Use plastic ornament molds to make the bath bombs. I like to overfill each half then press them together until the excess falls out. This way you’ll have a compact bath bomb that won’t fall apart when you open the mold. You can also use silicone molds to make small bath bombs. This recipe makes 3 medium bath bombs or 2 medium and 8 small bath bomb fizzies.
- Leave bath bombs to dry overnight before removing from mold. Allow them to dry on a towel for a few hours before using or wrapping.

These look amazing and just in time for Mother’s Day. I think they would make lovely gifts! Thanks so much for sharing!
I agree with you so much
Could these possibly be used in the shower or do they need full submersion in the bath tub?
I love this! What do you use to wrap the bath bombs if you’re giving them away as gifts?
You could make the ones in the cookie tray and stack them in a mason jar and tie a burlap strand at the neck of the jar
i wrap my bath bombs in tissue paper;
I’ve used cellophane/plastic wrap for the bath bombs and tied the end with pretty ribbon. That way the bath bombs are the first thing the recipient sees. Try to stack them together so they don’t get jostled too much. I store them in a plastic air tight container until I use them
I’d wrap them in saran wrap then tissue.
Love your website but as a vegan I struggle with all the use of milk products in the recipes. What do you suggest as a substitution?
Thank so for this recipe about how many bath bombs does this make?
Thanks for this recipe. It’s looks lovely. I can’t wait to make them.
You saved my mother’s day! Daughter and I had a blast making these. Messy.. but fun! Thank you!
