Our DIY Bath Salts!

Homemade/DIY Bath Salts

Our Base Recipe:

1 cup Epsom salt
1/4 cup baking soda
1/4 cup sea salt

Our Blends:

lavender + bergamot

eucalyptus + peppermint

lavender + rosewater

lemon + rosemary

This is a super inexpensive DIY project (minus the initial investment on the oils) and makes for a fun little "girls morning" craft!
We bought the Epsom salt, sea salt and baking soda from a local bulk store for roughly $1/pound (some items less, some items slightly more).
The essential oils we bought from a local All Natural store - prices vary depending on what brand you use. Just like anything else in life- the higher the price...the higher the quality.
These oils last forever a VERY long time...a little goes a long way.

As to HOW we did it...
In large glass bowls we mixed up our Epsom salt, sea salt, and baking soda. Then we added our essential oils- we had a total of about 20-30 drops per single batch.

When mixing the oils in the salt mixture, we made sure to grind up any clumps caused from adding the essential oils. Then we dumped and spread the salts out onto a large cookie sheet to dry (this prevents any large clumps) for about 20 minutes.

Then it was time to fill up our containers...
and voila!
It's that easy.

My plan is to not just use these in the bath, but also when I shower, by sprinkling some on the floor of the shower!
This was a super fun and easy little project that even my 10 year old niece helped out with!
(we did feel a little "Walter White/Breaking Bad" while mixing up our salt concoction and dumping it out to dry...we debated adding curry powder and blue food coloring...maybe next time) ;)
(I hope you've seen Breaking Bad, otherwise now you just think I'm crazy...)
