Wild Rose Bath Salt Recipe
Updated: Feb 13, 2019
Today I am going to share with you our DYI Wild Rose Bath Salt that is a really easy and a super fun kid friendly activity. Plus, we harvested the wild rose petals in the summer, which is a really lovely foraging activity to do with kids. Keep reading for our wild rose bath salt recipe!
I love to involve the kids in little DIY projects especially if the project involves any kind of plant life. Recently I've gotten into the habit of taking baths at night and I think it's safe to say I'm a shower-to-bath convert! It has been such a lovely way for me to wind down at the end of a long day with the kids.
I had been using basic Epsom salts in the bath but I've seen a lot of rather fancy salt soaks at our local store. I've been interested in trying them out but they are pretty pricey so I've refrained. Instead, I decided to buy the raw ingredients and make our own floral bath salts.
Naturally the kids were really curious about the project and wanted to help, so we set up our kitchen table with all the necessary ingredients to create our own bath soak. The best part was we actually had wild rose petals that were harvested last summer. It was so wonderful to actually find a use for those beautiful flowers that had been sitting in our herb cabinet waiting to be put to good use!
20 oz. Epsom Salt, Extra Finem 3 oz. Pink Sea Salt, Coarse 2 mL (about 40 drops) Essential Rose Oil 1 Tbsp. Dried Wild Roses

1. Combine the Epsom salt and pink salt together.
