I absolutely LOVE bath salts. The best part is that they are so easy to make and the possibilities are endless when it comes to the scent. Besides, bath salts beyond looking beautiful and smelling great, are far-reaching, and after using them you’ll feel the difference in your skin, your mood, and so much more.

I’ve always been a believer in energy. We receive and transmit energy all the time. I think that sometimes we neglect ourselves giving priority to everything but ourselves.

I try at least once a month to give myself a renewing bath using bath soaks and different kinds of essential oils depending on what I need to focus on.

Sometimes lavender is great to relax and give you a peaceful night’s sleep. Roses are great to recharge energy and work on our romantic sides.

Essential Oils are a great part of bath salts and they help as much as salt does! I personally love rose fragrance oil.

So having a good stock is great for you and your family!

Benefits of Using Rose Bath Salts

Taking a long hot bath with bath salts has plenty of benefits for your body, as well as your mind. Bath salts are not only relaxing, but they can also soothe your skin and relieve muscle tension.

Also, instead of spending a lot of money on some fancy bath product, why not make your own?

If you are coloring the salt, add a few drops to the mixture and stir well. Add one drop at a time while mixing until you get the desired color.

Last but not least add your essential oil. Add as many drops of rose oil as you desire. Of course, the more you add the stronger it will smell.

Pour the salt into the jar and decorate it as you love! I made a label for the lid and used pink and white thread with satin rose on each end. Looks so cute.

Tips for making bath salts

Add dried florals. Feel free to jazz up this rose bath recipe with dried botanicals such as rose petals and dried rose buds, you always mix others such as lavender, peonies, jasmine, hibiscus petals, or gomphrena (Amaranthus) buds.

For an even more relaxing sensation, you can add a few drops of lavender essential oil too.

Since salt by nature is prone to absorbing moisture, make sure to keep your rose-scented bath salts in an airtight storage container such as mason jars, flip-top jars, small milk bottles, and jars with cork lids.

Double the quantities to make a larger batch. The recipe is easy to scale up in case you want to prepare the rose bath salts for yourself, for gifts, or for sale.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you use fresh rose petals in bath salts?

Dried rose petals are best for making rose bath salts, but if you want to use fresh petals, you don’t have to wait for your roses to fade and dry. Spread fresh rose petals on a plate in a single layer on a paper towel. Cover with a second paper towel and microwave for 45 to 60 seconds.

Infused with a delicate essential oil, bathing with this bath salt is a healing and therapeutic experience for the mind and body. Stimulates circulation, cleanses pores, and draws toxins from the body.

Is it safe to put rose petals in a bath?

Known as a powerful mood enhancer, adding rose petals to a warm bath will help you get rid of feelings of anxiety and detox your body. It will also help you sleep better.

    I only take baths when I’m feeling bad, but I bet this would make me feel better, and smell so good. Would make great gifts! I love the cute jars and pretty labels. Thanks for sharing! Pinning!

    1. I love taking bath with salts at least once a month… It’s so relaxing and renewing! and Roses is my favorite scent! so I usually go for it! Glad you like this one!
      Hugs and XOXO

  3. I’m not sure if you noticed, but your photos showing the label for the bath salts says “bath SATS” and not “salts.” I’m not sure if the printable version has that typo in it or not, because when I clicked, it didn’t show the printable.
    Anyway, I’ve never made my own bath salts. Not yet. I have a bunch of DIYs pinned, though. Yours looks awesome! I love the printable you made to go along with it. It fits it perfectly.

    1. I hadn’t noticed that and I’m so grateful that you let me know this… I’ll fix that and fix why the downloadable is not showing up! Again I can’t thank you enough for letting me know!!! Darn typos!!!
      Hugs and lost of XOXO

    1. Hey Victoria, how good to have you visiting! Thank you so much, I’m really excited about it… Hope yours turned out great, would love to see it when you do!

  6. I have actually never tried bath salts before!! I know, it’s crazy right?! I love bath bombs and bath bubbles, but just never got around to trying bath salts. Maybe I will use your tutorial to make some :-)

    1. Thank you, I will love to see yours, I’m so sure you will give it a twist that I’ll die to make LOL. I’m sure you will get addict to it! It’s so nice and relaxing!
      XOXO
