This rose petal bath soak is a luxurious way to relax and unwind after a long summer day!
Use a sharp knife or scissors to break down rose petals into small pieces. Add to salt and soda mixture. Combine well and transfer to airtight jar(s).
Optional- For a scented version, add 1-2 drops of rose essential oil to top of each dried rose bud. Air dry for a few hours or overnight on a paper towel. Place on top of soak mixture in jar and seal with airtight lid.
Store in a dry and dark place. Use within 1 month for best results.
Add ½ cup soak (not the scented buds) to the tub as you're filling with very warm water. Allow to dissolve (you may have to stir the water around with your hand). Soak for 20 minutes.
Exercise caution getting out of the tub, especially if you’re feeling light-headed or weak. Pat yourself dry to allow the mineral-rich water to soak into your skin or rinse off if you prefer. (Rinse debris down tub.)
Drink plenty of water during and after bath.
