We tried them, we loved them and we hope that you will love them too.
ROSE MILK BATH BOMB
Bath bombs are kind of sent from heaven. It is the greatest way to soak in the water and relax. The marvelous smell that these cute things leave on you, will make your skin thank you later. This rose petal and rose oil infused bath bomb is made with dry milk that helps nourish and moisturize the skin.
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
Step one: 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.
Step two: in a small cup or bowl stir together water, almond oil, and rose essential oil.
Step three: combine wet ingredients with dry mixture. Test mixture by grabbing a handful and making a fist. If it holds it’s shape 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
Step four: use plastic ornament molds to make the bath bombs. I like to over fill 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 make 3 medium bath bombs or 2 medium and 8 small bath bomb fizzies.
Step five: 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.
ROSE WATER FACE MIST
Facial mists are booming and they’re only going to get more popular early into the summer. A good facial mist can keep your makeup looking glowy throughout the day and helps to keep your skin hydrated.
1/2 TSP vitamin E oil
2 drops of peppermint essential oil
2 drops Geranium essential oil
4 TBSP Pure Moroccan Rose Water
3 TBSP coconut water
Step one: add your oils to a glass spray bottle.
Step two: add rose water and top off with coconut water.
Step three: shake + spray.
BABY ROSE SUGAR SCRUB
If you’re not using a body scrub then you’re missing out on a number of benefits that other skin care products don’t provide. Essentially the benefits of using a body scrub are the removal of dead skin cells from the body and impurities, leaving you feeling fresh and your skin looking rejuvenated and revitalized.
1.5 cups of plain white sugar
1/4 cup of baby oil
12 rose petals
a food processor
a pretty jar
Step one: Blend the sugar, the baby oil and the rose petals all together in the food processor.
Step two: Enjoy!
