What are bath salts?

Now, I am not a big “bath” person, but I know that bubbling bath salts are very popular. I have a friend that has been stressed and under the weather lately, so I thought I would try my hand at making some homemade bath salts as a gift.

I have to tell you, these bath salts were so easy to make, I actually may just start taking more baths! 😉

Bath salts start with Epsom salt and you can add essential oils and other ingredients to make this your own.

How do you make bath salts at home?

It is so easy and inexpensive you will never buy store bought again. Plus, I love knowing exactly what is in the things I am giving my family to use.

We love to use essential oils but some people like to use food coloring to make the bath salt a certain color.

You will love this homemade bath and especially after a long day.

Let’s get started with this easy Homemade bath soak recipe!

Ingredients for Homemade Bath Soak:

That’s it! I bought everything at my local grocery store except for the essential oil but I also love to get things on Amazon to save time and money.

I only use Young Living Essential Oils. They are high quality, pure oils and I have come to really like them.

There are a variety of oils and combinations of oils that I thought would be good for these bath salts, so I decided to go with lavender essential oil.

Lavender is well known to bring relaxation to the mind, body and spirit, so it seemed like the natural choice for my this homemade bath soak.

How to make Homemade Bath Salts and Scrubs:

Making these bath salts is really easy. I mean, really very easy. Are you ready for the instructions?

1. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper and spread out your homemade bath salts evenly. You’ll want to let them dry out for several hours, or until they are back to salt consistency.We were having a warm day, so I just set my tray outside for a few hours.

2. Mix everything together in a large bowl. You will have a very wet mixture. I know, these don’t resemble what you would think of as “bath salts”.Don’t worry, we’re not done yet. Once you have everything mixed and you are happy with the aroma, you’ll need to let this dry out.

3. Every now and then I would go and stir everything up to make sure it was all drying out. Once all of your salts are nice and dry, place them in an air tight container.

You can store these homemade bath salts for up to about 3 months.

The Cost to make Homemade bath salt recipe:

I used about half of a bag of epsom salt, which cost about $3. I used about ⅓ a bottle of VO5 shampoo, which was on sale for $0.68.

The olive oil and lavender oil were negligible because I already had them on hand. I also happened to have this cute glass jar (it was an old antique store rescue from years ago).

So, it cost me about $2 to make these homemade bubbling bath salts.

If you don’t yet have Lavender Essential Oil, it will be a little bit of an expense at first, but it will last you a very long time. I probably use Lavender more than any other oil and I swear the little bottle seems bottomless.

Considering bath salts run about $15 at the average retail store, making scented bath salts  yourself will save you BIG bucks!

More Options:

If you are not a big fan of lavender by itself, or you want to mix it up and try some different scents, I have several other suggestions for oils that would make for a nice bath salt scent:
