Does she know a "leave it" command? You can tell when she's going to do it - watch for a shoulder drop on her dominant side (usually the right, but with some dogs it's left, just like people). She will drop her shoulder before she rolls, and you can give her a quick "aaack!" or "leave it!" before she gets down and dirty. Pablo did the same thing when I first got him, and I had to give him a bath, too. After a couple of weeks of watching him closely and correcting him, he's stopped trying. Good luck!

I agree with Widogmom, I was thinking the same thing. Teach her a leave it command and correct her when you see her about to go down and do that. It's funny how dogs find something and do that. Shayley & Kizzie roll in the grass outside our house and sometiems even on the rocks in the driveway. It's so goofy. Kizzie is obsessed with rubbing herself against my hair (Or anybodies hair I should say) right after you get out of the shower. She'll jump up behind the couch/chair your sitting on and rub up against your head. It's so funny.
Good luck with your little one! Hope it will stop soon!!
