Homemade Bath Salts



Today’s tips is not only a more natural way to pamper yourself, but it’s also a great gift idea. Here’s how to make your own homemade bath salts.


  • 6 parts coarse sea salt
  • 3 parts epsom salt
  • 1 part baking soda
  • A few drops of your favorite essential oil or 1 part dried herbs (ie. lavender, rosemary, etc…)
Love essential oils? I’m a self-proclaimed oil-junkie! Read up on the brand of essential oils I absolutely love and currently use for everything from warding off strep, to eliminating my daughter’s asthma.

Combine all ingredients, and stir with a metal spoon. Store in an air-tight container  to avoid moisture getting in.
Find some cute glass containers at a thrift shop or craft store, and you’ve got a very inexpensive and natural gift for the holidays!

  1. Being a teacher, I always say, “No question is a dumb one.” However, I feel ridiculous asking, what you use for or where you get your essential oil or dried herbs ???

  2. Melody, I would search Google for “essential oils ZIP-CODE” where ZIP-CODE is your local zip code. You’ll find several sources for finding essential oils.

    Crystal, with Christmas around the corner, this sounds like a great idea for a present. Thanks for sharing!
