Make Your Own Bath Salts

I love a nice hot bath with bath salts. What about you? It is so soothing and I love soaking my muscles. You can make your own bath salts with this fun project. Maybe they will be a handmade holiday gift or just for you to enjoy next time you take a bath.

There is something so soothing about relaxing in the bath with some amazing bath salts and essential oils. There is one thing I have noticed about the store-bought bath salts. They are made of synthetic ingredients and scents when they don’t need to be. It’s a much better idea to make your own if you can. I now make my own all the time. It is a fun project or a homemade gift idea too!

Here is how to make bath salts at home:

What you need:

  1. Epsom salt
  2. Essential oils
  3. Optional – dried herbs or flowers like dried lavender
  4. A pint sized mason jar


Add a few drops of essential oils and stir. Add in the dried herbs/flowers too. Add to a mason jar. Personalize it with some twine or decals for a nice homemade gift!

Use 2 cups for a full body bath soak. Use less for foot soaks.
