Homemade Bath Salts

The holidays are just around the corner. And for many of us this is a very stressful time! You spend a lot of extra time with family, and have the added pressure of gift giving.

I personally love the holidays,but I very much dislike how commercial it has gotten. For the record I don’t need more stuff. I feel like I am also getting rid of “STUFF”.

So here is my solution to the whole gift giving dilemma. It’s not going to put a drain on your pocketbook and is sure to put a smile on someone’s face.

Homemade bath salts

They are so easy to make, plus it is not a gift that will clutter someone's home and provide a wonderful experience for the gift receiver.

Here is what you need

  • Epsom Salt
  • Essential oils
  • Plastic baggy  


Take 1 cup of Epsom salt and pour into the plastic baggy and add the chosen essential oils. And mix all together. This is enough for 1 bath for an adult.
