Start by mixing the essential oil into the salt. Make sure that you thoroughly blend the oil throughout, breaking up clumps as you go.

Next, add in the rose petals. I used 1/4 cup of petals and buds, but feel free to increase or decrease this amount based on your preferences.

Stir the petals into the salt mixture. For me, I wanted to see the rose petals speckled throughout the salt (not too heavy, but not too light either) so 1/4 cup was just the right amount.

  1. Only problem with your recipe is that the rosebuds will clog your drain….need powdered herbs and oils.

  2. For the rosebuds and pedals… Would it still clog the drain if you dried them and ground them up with a coffee grinder? Would it still have the same effect if they were dried?

    1. Hi Susan!

      It’s it is finely grinned it should not present as big a problem as if it were whole; however, it is a dried item and it is recommended that you treat your drains as necessary.

  3. An easy fix is to just lay your washcloth over the drain or purchase one of the cheap plastic slotted drain covers that are for hair and such over the drain. Simple solution.
