Savour that bouquet a little longer – re-use left over rose petals.
What you will need
- 1 cup Epsom salts
- 1 cup dried rose petals
- 12 drops rose oil
- 12 drops lavender oil
- 1/2 cup oats
Combine salts & oils
Combine the Epsom salts and the scented oils together in a bowl. We used rose and lavender oils, but you can create your own aromatherapy blend using oils of your choice.
Dry fresh rose petals
To dry your fresh rose petals, place on absorbent towel and microwave on high for about a minute − this may vary between microwaves and petal sizes. Remove from the microwave and allow the steam to disperse. Mix dried petals and oats together.
Cut muslin & spoon salt & petal mixture
Cut muslin into 4 squares. Spoon equal amounts of salt and petal mixtures among each square. We used different coloured petals for a pretty effect.
Tie & soak in tub
Tie each square with string. Fill your tub, hang a bath tea bag from the tap and allow it to infuse. Light some candles and soak in the calming atmosphere.
