After making my Almond Rose Petal Soap last week, I had a ton of leftover rose petals to work with. Since I was already sending the soap to family for Valentine’s Day, I decided to sweeten their gifts with another DIY bath product.
I love the fizziness of bath bombs, but worried they’d fall apart without a lot of extra packaging. Instead, I tweaked a bath bomb recipe and packaged it as foot soak. I was worried it might get clumpy, but I thought it worked out great!
This Rose Petal Foot Soak is delightful! Beautifully scented, fizzy and ultra relaxing for tired feet, this recipe can easily be updated for different occasions and scents.
Adapted from A Pumpkin and A Princess
- 1 cup baking soda
- ½ cup citric acid*
- ½ cup cornstarch
- 3 tbsp Epsom salt
- Handful of dried rose petals
- 2 tsp Sweet Almond Oil
- 15-20 drops essential Rose oil
- Candy bags (or any airtight container – I chose bags due to shipping)
*Citric acid was difficult for me to find. I ended up purchasing mine from a brewing shop.
Mix all dry ingredients together and then add oils. Store in bags or other airtight containers.
I didn’t dry my rose petals when I made this recipe, but I should have. It’s really easy to do – just lay them out on a towel for a few days.
To use, put 2 tablespoons into a foot bath and relax!
TIP: Don’t have a foot bath? Purchase a dish tub (I bought mine at Wal-Mart), they work just fine and are very inexpensive, allowing you to splurge on other goodies!
