You will never buy bath salts again after you discover just how easy they are to DIY. You mix a few ingredients together and walla, a homemade batch of bath salts ready to soak in. There is honestly no real science when it comes to bath salts, you just add a pinch of this and a few drops of that. Don’t worry, I’ll give you an actual recipe (that I tested out on myself). This is a tutorial after all, but feel free to change it up and let me know what you come up with!
Fragrance Oil (for soap)
Mixing Bowl & Spoon
Jar or Container
Step 1: Mix together 2 cups of Epsom Salt and 2 cups of Baking Soda in a mixing bowl. You can also add in a cup or so of Sea Salt, I opted not to.
Step 2: Add 10 drops of your fragrance of choice, I used lavender. You can find fragrance oil in the soap making aisle at any craft store. Make sure the fragrance oil is specifically for soaps, so it will be skin friendly.
Step 3: Add 10 drops of your color of choice, I used purple (to go with the lavender theme). You can find soap coloring in the soap making aisle at any craft store. Make sure the coloring is specifically for soaps, so it will be skin friendly.
Step 4: Mix. You can then decide if you want a stronger fragrance or a brighter color, add more drops of each if you do.
