A few weeks ago I did a make & take at my house with a few friends. We made diffuser pendants, bath salts & sugar scrub. Today I want to share with you how to make an easy bath salt that is perfect for gift giving! It’s not too late to whip some of these up for gifts!
The original recipe is from TidyMom. To make Lemon Rosemary Bath Salt you simply mix together the following:
- 2 cups epsom salt
- 1/2 cup baking soda
- 2-3 tbsp fresh rosemary; finely chopped
- 6-8 drops lemon essential oil
- 2-3 tbsp lemon zest (optional)
I didn’t use that much rosemary in mine because I only had a small amount. It is still very fragrant even with only one tablespoon. I also didn’t use as much lemon zest. I just zested some of the peel until it looked like enough. This recipe fills one pint and one jelly jar.
If you want to fill up three pint jars, you simply double the recipe. That fills the jars almost to the top (add a little more epsom salt if needed). This recipe can easily be amended to whatever oil you want to use:
- 4 cups epsom salt
- 1 cup baking soda
- 12-16 drops of essential oil
Tie them with a sweet bow and tag and you’re all set! To use, measure out 1/2c-1c of the mixture and put in your bath water for a relaxing detox soak. Some of the oils that we liked to use in the ones we mixed up are lavender, cedarwood and peace & calming.
