Bath SaltsA nice relaxing aromatic bath after a long day is a perfect end of the day routine. We had a little recipe for how to create a luxurious Vanilla Rose Petal Bath Salt that will leave you perfectly unwound and ready for a good nights sleep.  We found this recipe on a very creative blog called Simply Designing and loved how they added rose petals to the it to make is so visually appealing, making it a sweet gift or just in a cute jar you would want to leave out in your bathroom.

To create Vanilla Rose Petal Bath Salts, you will need:
  • 1 cup Epsom Salts
  • Petals from 1 Rose
  • 2-4 drops Vanilla Fragrance Oil

Place all of your ingredients into a food processor and mix for just a few seconds. The petals will break up into charming tiny pieces and your salt will stay intact. The rose petals give off a slightly floral fragrance and the vanilla oil compliments it so nicely!

You can customize this recipe a few different ways. One being to use different colored roses petals for different colors. Another way you can customize these Bath Salts is by replacing the rose petals in the recipe with Rose Garden Fragrance Oil if you wanted a stronger rose aroma.

Vanilla– Vanilla comes from orchids of the genus Vanilla, a vine-like plant that grows up trees. While the major species of vanilla orchids are now grown around the world, they originally came from Mesoamerica, including parts of modern day Mexico and Guatemala. This Vanilla aroma is a classic rich creamy vanilla scent.

Rose Garden– “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” -Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare Take a stroll through an elegant English rose garden with this delightful Rose Garden oil fragrance. The heart of the fragrance is a sumptuous bouquet of roses, with nuances of carnation and a base note of soft lingering musk.

This is a perfect gift for Valentines, Mother’s Day and birthdays! What women doesn’t want to soak in an warm exotic rose infused bath?!
