Recipes for Making Bath Salts

I was wondering if there is a easy way to make your own bath salts. I love to relax in the bath and I get gift baskets all the time. I love the bath salts and was just wondering. It would be greatly appreciated because I have to give a gift basket in july.

Recipes for Making Bath Salts

I cannot remember the ladies name. She requested how to make homemade bath salts. I saw a recipe somewhere on the web. Here goes.

  • 2C Epsom salt, or Dead sea salt. Or 1 C of each.
  • 1-2 tsp. baking soda (makes skin soft)
  • 10-12 drops of essential oil, vanilla, lavender, eucalyptus whatever you like.

You can add a small amount of food coloring paste (kind used for cake decorating). Only if desired.

Stir salt really well. The more you stir the more the smell comes out.


Pour into pretty glass jars. Mason, baby food, jelly etc.

Add several TBSP bath salt into warm bath water. (01/09/2005)
