Relax With This Rose Bath Bomb Recipe From Neal's Yard Remedies

Relax and recuperate with these divine homemade bath bombs, created by the experts at Neal's Yard Remedies. Light some candles for a truly luxurious evening soak, with calming rose and balancing geranium aromas to help you unwind. Experiment with different dried flowers, such as lavender, and your favourite essential oils, to create your own homemade bath bomb blends.

Ingredients | Makes 20

Sodium bicarbonate, 400g (14oz)
Citric acid, 200g (7oz)
Dried rose petals, 2–3 tsp
Cocoa butter or vegetable oil, 1 tsp
Geranium essential oil, 10 drops
Rose absolute essential oil, 5 drops
Water, 1 tsp

How to Use

Add the fragrant bath bomb to a warm bath and let it dissolve while you recline and relax.

How to Make

1.  Lightly grease ice-cube moulds (a spray oil is ideal for this). Measure out the dry ingredients, then mix all of them together.

2. Melt the cocoa butter in a bain marie (see p. 188), and add the essential oils. Add the melted cocoa butter to the dry ingredients and mix.

3. Add water with an atomizer and bind the mixture with your hands until it resembles damp sand and sticks together without fizzing. If it's crumbly, add a bit more water.

4. Firmly press into the moulds and allow to set for at least 1 hour. Turn from the moulds and use as required. The bombs keep for up to 3 months.
