Here’s what you’re going to need to create your very own Rosehip Bath Bombs…
First is the baking soda, then citric acid and cornstarch some Epsom salts, soap colouring or food colouring a plastic mould castor oil and of course last but not least, Rosehip Farms organic certified, Rosehip Oil (your essential oil for this recipe)
What you will need…
- ½ cup baking soda
- ¼ cup Epsom salt
- ¼ cup corn starch
- ¼ cup of citric
- 2 tbls Rosehip oil
- 1 tbls water
How it’s made…
First, we’re going to mix our dry ingredients we’re gonna use a half a cup of baking soda 1/4 cup of Epsom salt which soothes muscles and softened skin.
Now add a quarter cup of corn starch and that just helps hold everything together.
Then lastly a quarter cup of citric acid this is what makes the bath bomb so fun, as it reacts with the baking soda to create the fizz.
Now in a separate bowl mix all your wet ingredients together. So, start with two table spoons of rosehip oil.
Next, we’re going to add one tablespoon of our Rosehip oil. I love using Rosehip oil because of all its therapeutic properties it’s non comedogenic it’s a natural anti-inflammatory and it’s super hydrating.
Now we add the soap colouring you can also use regular food colouring you want, remember this is very concentrated so only add a few drops and don’t worry this will not stain your bathtub.
Finally, a tablespoon of water and then mix.
Now we mix everything together. Very important you want to add the liquid very slowly so that it doesn’t activate the solution and then start whisking.
You’ll notice it starts to clump together, but just continue mixing until you have a thick even consistency.
Now we’re going fill our mould. I just used an old plastic Christmas ornament, but you could also use a soap mould or even meat baller. Fill both sides of the mould so that they are a bit over full, then tightly press together, and hold in place with elastic bands.
A good idea is to let them dry overnight but if you want to use it right away, you can pop them in the fridge for 30 minutes.
And that’s it, all you need to do now is pop one into your bath water and enjoy an invigorating, relaxing, soothing experience.
