Herbal Gift Making: DIY Bath Salt



With Christmas right around the corner, last minute, easy DIY gifts are a must!

Bath salts are a simple, easy, inexpensive and beautiful gift to give to anyone during the winter months. Plus they are so fun to make!

I will share with you some of my favorite combinations but feel free to substitute with other herbs or essential oils to your liking.

What you will need:

  • 1 part Epsom Salt
  • 1 part Dead Sea Salt
  • Herbs (I like to use Chamomile, Rose Petals or Lavender Flowers)
  • Essential Oils (Lavender, Neroli or Peppermint are great to use for relaxation)
  • Glass Jar or container



  1. Using a big mixing bowl first put in one part Epsom Salt and one part Dead Sea Salt.
  2. Next add in the herbs you would like to use. I would suggest using approximately 1-2 tablespoons for every 2 cups of bath salt blend.   Add as much as you would like and adjust as necessary.
  3. Next step will be to add essential oil, I would suggest using approximately 6-7 drops per cup of bath salt blend that you make. Get creative with this part, mix different essential oils until you find a combination you like!
  4. Last step is to stir it all together until it is evenly blended. Disperse evenly into jars and TA-DA you are done! ENJOY and Happy Soaking!
