Debbie's "Secret" Recipes for Bath Salts

My "Secret" recipe for bath salts

  • 2 cups epsom salts
  • 2 drops essential oil
  • 2 drops food coloring

I like my bath salts a pastel color so I don't use much food coloring but that is up to you. I get most of my fragrance oils online. You can also divide this up and layer them with different colors in your container. I would not mix scents though.


Oatmeal Bath Salts

  • 2 cups of Epsom salts
  • 1/2 cup of regular oatmeal (generic is fine)
  • 2 drops of essential oil
  • 2 drops food coloring

For this recipe you need a blender or other appliance that will pulverize the oatmeal. You want it to have the consistency of very fine beach sand. Add your fragrance oil and coloring.

Milk Bath Salts

  • 2 cups epsom salts
  • 1/2 cup dry powdered milk
  • 2 drops essential oil
  • 2 drops food coloring

Make sure that you stir well to evenly distribute the color. I also always use a chocolate fragrance oil or rose with this one. My friends say it smells good enough to eat.
