This time of year is usually when hints of spring come out and I’m ready to peel off some layers, however, my skin is usually very dry and I don’t feel comfortable showing it off just yet. A few ways I like to pamper my skin back to smooth is by taking a relaxing hot bath with this DIY rose petal bath soak.
Sometimes I get so busy with the holidays and so on that I forget to take the time to take care of my skin and my mental health. It’s amazing what a long bath can do to help you and your skin reboot for the day/week. The bath soak may also be used as a bath scrub to slough off some of that lingering dead skin after a dry winter.
The ingredients listed below are hydrating and simple to put together. This also makes a great gift for a friend or a loved one. Simply place a jar of the bath soak in a basket with some tealight candles, a natural sponge, and wahlah you have a thoughtful gift to brighten someone’s day. Ok, here is the recipe for the bath soak.
ROSE PETAL BATH SOAK
- 2 CUPS EPSOM SALT
- 2 TSP. COCONUT OIL (HEATED)
- 5-6 DROPS OF ROSE ESSENTIAL OIL
- A HANDFUL OF DRIED ROSE PETALS
ONCE YOU HAVE HEATED THE COCONUT OIL AND IT IS NO LONGER SOLID, MIX ALL INGREDIENTS TOGETHER IN A MEDIUM BOWL AND STORE IN A JAR WITH A LID. *NOTE- I USUALLY HEAT THE COCONUT OIL IN A SMALL MEASURING CUP FOR ABOUT 30 SECONDS IN THE MICROWAVE.
