DIY Oatmeal Rose Bath Bombs
These DIY Oatmeal Rose Bath Bombs will take your bath to the next level!
Featured on MovingBabies
Let me start off by apologizing to anyone that followed my Tumblr blog back in the day. My old recipe certainly worked, but these DIY oatmeal rose bath bombs put my old recipe to absolute shame! I’ve made my fair share of bath bombs since then, so this time around they turned out absolutely perfect. I can proudly say that this is the best recipe I’ve come up with yet. I thought about making rose milk bath bombs, but I decided on this recipe instead, since the ingredients are more common.
If there’s one thing that makes an overworked, exhausted mama happy, it’s a relaxing bath. Your kids might love watching these bombs fizz and disappear, but try to hide them for yourself. Kids just don’t appreciate rose petal baths the way we do. Save these babies for yourself, on the off-chance you actually find time to bathe alone. Soon I’ll share a recipe for kids bath bombs with a little treat inside each bomb.
I recently realized that the mixture should be much dryer than I originally anticipated. It’s actually kind of surprising at first. You wouldn’t expect a dry mixture to mold well, but it does! I didn’t try this batch out, I gave them to my mother-in-law. She said they were fizzy and smelled wonderful! Woohoo!

DIY Oatmeal Rose Bath Bombs
- 1/2 cup citric acid
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1/4 cup quick oats
- 1/3 cup cornstarch
- 3 tbsp epsom salt
- 1 tsp water
- 3 tsp almond oil
- 2 drops rosehip oil
- Few drops lavender essential oil
- Dried rose petals
- Bath bomb molds
1. Mix the dry ingredients in a big bowl. (Citric Acid, baking soda, quick oats, cornstarch, epsom salt, and rose petals).
2. Mix the wet ingredients in a separate small bowl. (Water, almond oil, rose hip oil, and lavender essential oil).
3. *SLOWLY* pour in the wet mixture into the bowl of dry ingredients, mixing quickly the entire time. Be careful, pouring too fast will ruin your batch. The “fizziness” will be activated, and your bath bombs won’t work. If you see little bubbles, or hear the mixture fizzing, slow down!
4. Once the ingredients are fully combined, pick up a little bit and try to create a mini bath bomb with your hand. If the mixture isn’t molding at all, add a tiny bit of water. I used my garden spray bottle to spritz it a few times, and it worked perfectly!
5. Put the bath bomb mixture into molds and let them harden for several hours.
6. Remove the bath bombs from the molds and admire your work!
