Learn how to make DIY bath salts with your favorite essential oils and baking soda! Decorate the container and add a scoop for a unique gift.
Hello, friends! I’m thrilled to be here today sharing a fun, easy and completely customizable gift-idea for the holidays – DIY bath salts!
I had no idea how easy these would be to put together, and I love how you can change out the scents, and even add some coloring, to make this recipe completely your own.
Think of the endless possibilities for recipients: neighbors, mailmen or women, teachers, co-workers . . . it’s really awesome how much you can make and for such a small price.
You can even buy a lot of the supplies at Dollar Tree. Talk about gift ideas on a budget! Let’s get started.
DIY Peppermint Bath Salts
Gather These Supplies
- 2 cups epsom salt
- 3 Tbsp. baking soda
- Essential oils (approximately 35 drops)
- Clear containers like mason jars (this recipe fills 3 small jars)
- Embellishments for packaging – scrapbook paper, baker’s twine, wood spoons, washi tape, stamps
Step 1: Add your epsom salt and baking soda to a bowl, mixing well.
Step 2: Add in your essential oils. I chose Wild Orange (20 drops) and Peppermint (15 drops). Mix well. If you are adding coloring, this would be the time to add them into your mixture.
Step 3: Spoon your mixture into your containers (see how easy that was?!) and embellish to your heart’s content. I used a bit of washi tape and stamps to decorate wooden spoons, and mod podged a piece of marbled paper to the top of each lid.
Tie with a piece of bakers twine, and you’re done! You have the perfect gift for friends, teachers, and even yourself (I won’t tell!)
