DIY: Flower bath bomb

Natural bath bomb with inner pocket, bursting full of sweet scented rose petals

With the fun and festivities of Christmas nothing but a distant memory – and the warm and heady days of summer still seemingly a lifetime away, January can feel a little bleak to say the least (not to mention flippin’ freezing!). So, what better time to batten down the hatches, slip into a steamy, floral-scented bath and enjoy some seriously self-indulgent pampering?

Five-star fizz

Floral bath bombs are perfect for adding fizz, fragrance and flowers to the experience and channelling that full five-star spa treatment. And even better – they’re simple to make at home.

We love this DIY bath bomb project from the Lovely Greens blog, which incorporates rose, lavender and oatmeal. Drop it into your bath to fill the water with pretty petals and the air with a beautiful heady scent.

 

 

What to do

For the fully illustrated step-by-step instructions, head to the Lovely Greens blog. Almost too pretty to use, these bath bombs also make great gifts. Place them in a gift box lined with tissue paper and add a sprinkling of lavender and rose petals. Or you could just hoard them all for yourself – it is January after all, so you deserve it!
