The weather is rapidly getting cooler, and I find myself daydreaming of soaking in a hot, fragrant tub, and re-reading Harry Potter (for the 11 millionth time). There may or may not be a glass of wine by the tub in this fantasy.
Okay, there is wine. Of course there’s wine.
I know everyone has their favorite seasons, but I really love each one, and appreciate what each has to offer. For me, my favorite part of winter is indulging in hot baths, comfort foods, and lots of reading.
As I walked outside this morning, I noticed that the temperature had dropped to almost freezing. It occurred to me that it’s time to start making my arsenal of bath goodies for the winter!
My usual go-to, indulgent bath time treat is my Homemade Aromatherapy Bath Salts, but I also wanted to have some bath bombs on hand. So, I decided to whip up a fresh batch!
Rosehip Oil Bath Bombs
In my latest bath bomb creations, I decided to use rosehip seed oil, because of the numerous benefits it has for the skin.
Rosehip oil is rich in essential fatty acids and contains vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E and B-carotene. It’s been studied for its anti-aging benefits, noted for correcting dark spots, reducing fine lines, and hydrating dry skin (source).
When combined with celtic sea salt, baking soda and lavender essential oil, it makes luxurious rosehip oil bath bombs that will quickly become your favorite bath indulgence.
You’ll need a few unique ingredients for this recipe, and I’ve linked to the brands I use for reference. Many of these items can be found at your local stores.

- In a medium bowl, combine baking soda, salt, clay, rosehip seed oil, lavender essential oil and peppermint essential oil. Add citric acid and mix well.
- Pour Isopropyl alcohol into a spray bottle. Spritz the alcohol onto the baking soda mixture 5 - 10 times, stirring well after each spritz. Add more alcohol as needed to get a consistency that starts to form together, without getting damp.
- Add mixture into a bath bomb mold or a meat baller and allow to sit for 10 minutes. Gently remove from mold and place on parchment paper to dry.
