First, a confession: this is the first time I’ve made my own bath salts.
I don’t know why, but it always seemed complicated and time-consuming, neither of which it was, by the way. This recipe is so easy to customize as well, change out the scents, or add in some color if you’d like, for a completely custom creation!
Plus, what a great gift for friends, teachers, neighbors, or even yourself (I won’t tell!) Here’s the how-to so you can make your own bath salts…
- 2 Cups Epsom Salt
- 3 Tbsp. Baking Soda
- Essential Oils (approximately 35 drops)
- Clear Containers (this recipe fills 3 small jars)
- Embellishments for Packaging
- Mod Podge Matte
Step 1: Add your epsom salt and baking soda to a bowl, mixing well.
Step 2: Add in your essential oils.
I chose Wild Orange (20 drops) and Peppermint (15 drops). Mix well. If you are adding coloring, this would be the time to add them into your mixture.
Step 3: Spoon your mixture into your containers (see how easy that was?!) and embellish to your heart’s content.
I used a bit of washi tape and stamps to decorate wooden spoons, and mod podged a piece of marbled paper to the top of each lid.
Tie with a piece of bakers twine, and you’re done!
Thanks for reading all about my DIY bath salts! Have a great day!
