Introduction: Homemade Lavender Bath Salts

Picture of Homemade Lavender Bath Salts

My husband has been getting more and more into taking baths for relaxation. Bath salts, bombs, scrubs, etc. get pretty pricey, so I thought it would be fun to make some homemade bath salts for him.

Step 1: BoM

Epsom Salt

Dried Lavender

Lavender essential oil


Containers w/lids

Food coloring -optional

Step 2: Salt & Oil

The Epsom Salt container says to pour two cups of salt into your bath. I thought this was a good starting point for making a batch of bath salts. Pour two cups (or more) of salt into a bowl and add 10 (or more) drops of lavender essential oil. Stir well.

Step 3: Color

I have purple food gel, so I used a toothpick to dab a very, very, small amount of color into some of the salt. Then I used a fork to mix it really well. After the color was the shade I wanted, I mixed in the dried lavender.

Step 4: Bottle

When you're done mixing your salts and scents, use a funnel to pour the salts into containers. You can do straight lavender scented salts, a mix of lavender and plain, anything you want!
