Its easier than you think! All you need is 1/4 cup Epsom salts and 1/4 cup sea, kosher, or rock salt stirred together in a glass bowl for one unscented bath soak Of course, you can mix up oodles of extra to place in glass jars with tight fitting lids.

Want scented bath salts instead of unscented? Simply stir in the amount of scent strength you desire of your favorite 'pure essential oil' and you're good to go! Oh, the scented salts store well too. My personal favorite assorted scents are eucalyptus (stimulating), jasmine (relaxing), lavender (calming), orange (refreshing), rose (relaxing) and ylang ylang (which is both relaxing and stimulating).

This is a very easy way to make a homemade equivalent of orange bath salts. All you need are the cleaned peels from 2 large oranges, half a cup of epsom salt, and a laundry bag. Throw them in your bath and you're set. The yummy orange scent is a stress zapper and also targets aches in your body. Epsom salt is therapeutic for joint pain and muscle tension. You will love this bath!

I have a long Christmas list and a small budget, so I wanted to make cute personalized gifts that had a lot of bang for my buck. I have a friend that sells essential oils, so several ladies got together at her house for a crafting night to make scented bath products. I came up with this packaging idea.

These quick bath salts are easy to make and even easier to customize. The Epsom salt soothes your body while the fragrances sooth your nerves.

Approximate Time: 5 minutes

Supplies:

Instructions:

Open your plastic Ziploc bag and let air into it, so that the plastic isn't sticking together. Tilt the bag so one bottom corner is lower than the other. Stick your hand into the bag and add the essential oils, food coloring, and oil to the lower corner. Slowly lift the bottom corner of the bag so that both corners are even.. Let the liquid mix and cover the bottom on the bag.

Now pour your Epsom salt into the bag. Squeeze out most of the air and zip the bag closed securely. Shake, massage, and flip the bag until the salt is a uniform color. This means the oils, scents, and color has been mixed evenly across the salt, as shown in the "Mixed" picture.

Once everything is mixed, dump the salt into some sort of pretty container, anything can work as long as it has a lid. Close the container and add a ribbon or decoration to make it extra pretty, as shown in the finished project picture. Now your salts are ready to enjoy or give away as a gift.

Notes:

The salts should make enough for 1-4 uses, depending on the person and size of bathtub. If you want to make a large jar, simply double the recipe. If you want to try the salts, but need something on the more relaxing side, skip the sage, peppermint and green food coloring. Use lavender, jasmine and purple food coloring instead.

Using the extra mineral or olive oil isn't a must, and you can skip it if you want. However, the oil helps distribute the color and scent evenly into the salt, and adds a little boost of moisture to the overall product. This is great for people who love the soothing nature of bath salts, but have problems with dry skin. If the dry skin problem is major, use more of the mineral or olive oil to compensate.

I was wondering how long this lasts? If I made it now for Christmas presents, is it going to last until Christmas? Thanks! I love this idea!

I love this scent combination when my body is feeling tired. But buying it at the store is much too expensive. So I figured out how to make my own eucalyptus spearmint blend.

I use 3 cups of Epsom salts. Place one cup in three separate bowls. Use 15 drops of food colouring in each bowl; leave one white, also. This can be done in a jar with a lid. Use green and red colouring.

Here is a bath salt I made. So relaxing and also great for gifts. Mix salts in a bowl, then add essential oils and food coloring (start with 8 drops or so and add more as needed).

I have found that when you have a bottle of bath gel and want to make it go farther, find a nice glass jar, one that has a good lid on it, and pour some Epson salts in the jar, then pour the bath gel over the salts. You now have a great scrub!

My daughters went to some sort of party (the pocketbook kind) and spent almost 50 dollars for this! I just stared at them.

Mix dry ingredients together first. Sift. Add scent. Mix well then sift together to incorporate the scent.
