Fizzy Epsom Salt Bath Cubes




About: My boyfriend Judd and I have a lifestyle blog where we share DIY craft projects, vintage style, recipes, adventures and lots of fun! Won't you join us? xoxo

Here's a super easy way to make your own bath cubes out of epsom salts!  These little guys make great gifts, and are an inexpensive alternative to bath bombs.  Please visit our blog for more DIYs and adventures!  We love making new friends and adore comments from our readers.  Come see us anytime at  Thanks!

Let's get started!  You'll need:

*  1/4 cup water

*  4 cups epsom salts

*  5-10 drops of essential oil - I use eucalyptus and spearmint

*  Silicone ice cube tray

*  Bowl + spoon

Stir ingredients in a bowl until combined.  Scoop up a spoonful of the mixture and drop into the silicone mold. Pack tightly with your fingers, then add another scoop and pack it down.  Follow this system until you've filled each mold in the tray to the top.

Let it sit overnight to a few days.  Turn the mold upside down and gently push the silicone in to remove each cube from the tray.  Put in a jar or sachet to keep near the tub, or toss a few in some warm water and enjoy!!!

I made these because a friend wanted Epsom salts with essential oils and I didn't want to have to worry about the salts hardening into a giant block if the were exposed to moisture. I think these blocks are the perfect solution! Already hard but in useable blocks!
