Making bath salts is incredibly easy!

Combine the following ingredients, trying to somewhat evenly distribute the essential oil.  Once mixed well, store the bath salts in a glass container (like

this or this or this or  this).   And tie a fun (and functional) spoon or scoop (like this or this or this) to the jar to make a super cute gift!

Depending on the size of your tub, use about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of this salt blend per bath.

 

Here are some of my favorite relaxing essential oils and oil blends for baths:

  • 4 drops lavender and 4 drops cedarwood
  • 4 drops bergamot and 4 drops lavender
  • 2 drops lavender, 3 drops wild orange, and 4 drops cedarwood
  • 4 drops Roman chamomile, 2 drops cedarwood, and 3 drops lavender

    Have you ever used any type of food safe bag to store bath salts? I know I have purchased salts packaged this way at shows.

      Hi, Katherine. I have used plastic jars to store bath salts, but haven’t used plastic bags. But I can see that that would be very handy! If you’re adding essential oils, you’d want to make sure that the bags were made out of #1 (PETE) or #2 (HDPE) plastic so that the essential oils wouldn’t break down the plastic. – Sarah

    So with the shower bombs you just freeze theM or wait for them to dry out? I’m looking at the one that calls for 3parts baking soda, I part distilled water and then add oils

      Hi, Jennifer. For the shower bombs made with baking soda you either (1) let them air dry for 1-2 days (this is what I do) or (2) bake them in a very low oven for 20-30 minutes until they are dry. – Sarah

      Hi Jennifer,
      To make 1/2 cup of bath salts (enough for 1 bath), here’s the basic recipe:
      1/3 cup Epsom salt
      1 heaping Tbsp sea salt
      1 heaping Tbsp baking soda
      3 drops essential oil
