DIY ROSE PETAL BATH SOAK

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.

And that’s it!  A simple way to get your skin and your well-being on the right track for spring!  I hope you find this mixture as relaxing and helpful as I have and as always thanks for reading!  Do you have a favorite bath soak or salt scrub?  Please feel free to list them in the comments below.

Cheers – Ashley Nicole

  • Cold days like these make me want to cozy up with a warm blanket and look through sunny photos of past vacations while day dreaming up our next adventure together. 
Last year, my husband and I visited St. John and The British Virgin Islands and we had such an amazing time that I decided  to surprise him by capturing our favorite vacation moments with a custom photo book. 
Luckily, @google photos just launched a new photo book feature so I decided to try it out and I couldn’t believe how easy it was to create. It literally took minutes to put it together! 
If you have an anniversary, birthday, or “just because” dates coming up I would definitely recommend adding your own personal touch with one of these keepsakes!

  • Finally got out and about after being sick for the last few days and found the most delicious tile pattern on the way to my car. This was someone’s walkway leading up to their home (don’t mind if I do). So glad no one was there 🤫 but I had to share because it was the perfect reminder that beauty can be found in the most unexpected places. I hope your day was filled with beauty loves! ✨

P.S. You can now shop my looks over @liketoknow.it 🤗 Simply screen shot the photo and follow me in the #liketoknowit app!
  • Really looking forward to the weekend and a little sunshine because it’s been raining here non-stop! ☔️ I’ve def gotten my money’s worth out of my @hunterboots this week, but now I’m ready for a change 👢
  • Does anyone feel weird when the new year starts mid week? It’s kind of like when you’re at the crossing between 2 states with one foot on both sides.... I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m working on moving forward but I’m also having to look back on things in order to get there. Does this make sense? #newyearnewbeginnings #makeitcount #wrapitup
  • Welcoming 2019 with open arms! Last night Jamie (my husband) and I spent a nice quiet evening at home. I made Hoppin John, Collard Greens, Corn Bread, and Pork Chops. We ended the night watching the ball drop from bed and slept in for the first time since I can’t remember when. It was perfect! Just exactly what we needed to rejuvenate ourselves for the 1st day of the year. Today we took down all the Christmas decor and talked about some things we’d like to do/change in our home this year with a fresh new perspective. Lots of ideas sparking over here! Looking forward to new beginnings and new projects! Hope y’all had an amazing New Year’s!
