Eucalyptus Spearmint Bath Salts

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 placed the salts in a jar I painted with dots. It's all green, in honor of my spring fever.


Approximate Time: 5 minutes


  • 1 cup Epsom Salt
  • 1/4 cup baking soda
  • 3 drops spearmint essential oil
  • 3 drops eucalyptus essential oil
  • 2 drops green food coloring


  1. Pour the salt and baking soda in a small bowl. Mix together.
  2. Add essential oils and mix well.
  3. Split the mixture into two even batches.
  4. Place the second half in a separate bowl. Add food coloring to bowl and mix well.
  5. Tilt a glass jar and pour a little of the plain salt in. Pour some green salt in. Repeat switching until bottle is full. This will give you the neat, multi wave effect.

Sounds great - just out of interest, I take it the food colouring is diluted so much, in the bath, it doesn't leave you with a green tint?

Yup! As long as you only use a little food coloring, 2 drops, in the batch, it doesn't stain. Since the non-colored salt will also be mixing with the green when you pour it out, it helps dilute the color even further.
