Flower bath time to soothe body and mind

At the end of a long week, there’s nothing better than taking a long soak in a warm bath with that floral touch. Flower bath bombs for your bath have everything you need to heal your mind and body. They are available in several stores but are also very easy to make yourself. The best part about making them yourself is that you can choose which essential oils and scents to add, as well as how strong you’d like to make your floral bath bomb.

What you need:

  • 2 cups baking soda
  • 1 cup corn starch
  • 1 cup citric acid
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • Essential oil of your choice
  • Dried flowers (optional)


  • The first thing you need to do is prepare your flowers. Pluck the petals from the flower before it perishes and allow them to dry out.
  • If you prefer, you can also hang your flowers upside down and allow them to dry before you remove the petals.
  • Once the petals are completely dry, you can combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl.
  • Next, add the oils.
  • Combine together before rolling into balls or create the shape you desire.
  • Allow these balls to harden. This normally takes about 24 hours.
  • When you are ready to enjoy a soothing flower bath, you simply need to run your bath water as per usual before adding your very own bath bomb and take a soak!

When choosing your essential oil or oils, it’s good to know which ones suit your needs. Lavender is known for its calming properties, making it great to use before bed. Mint has an invigorating effect and will make every morning flower bath the perfect start to the day. Eucalyptus is known for its calming, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. If you have sore or tired muscles or have a cold, this is a great option. Lemon is another uplifting scent and even if you are deep in the heart of winter, you will feel the summer all around you! Be careful not to overdo it because lemon has a particularly strong aroma. Rose essential oil, sandalwood, almonds, and orange blossom are also popular choices. When purchasing essential oils, ask the store clerk for advice. The type of oils you need will depend on the benefits you are looking for.
