Homemade Bath Salts


I made these awesome homemade bath salts several months ago in a mom-group I'm in.
I never knew making bath salts was so easy!

All you need is:

  • epsom salt (found in a pharmacy)
  • essential oil (in whatever scent you prefer, found at health food stores)
  • mason jar
Just place some epsom salt in a bowl and break out the clumps with a spoon. Place a few drops on essential oil in the salt and mix. Pour mixture into a mason jar and you're done!  And if you want to give it as a gift, you can add fabric under the lid and a ribbon around it.

I desperately wanted to use these lovely smelling salts to soak my old bones in a long and luxurious bath.....but wo is me: our little apartment doesn't have a bathtub!!!! Nevertheless, I did give it to a wonderful and deserving friend. 'Tis better to give than receive. :)
