Luxe Yet Easy Homemade Bath Salts Gifts

homemade bath salts

Homemade bath salts make excellent gifts for all your family and friends who like to soak in the tub, and an excellent gift for yourself after a long, hard day. 

To make your own homemade bath salts, you really only need one ingredient: salt.

These quick and easy recipes will show you how to jazz up your bath salts with essential oils, flower petals, and colourants for extra extravagant baths on a dime.

A few points to note:

  • Epsom salts and Himalayan pink sea salt are excellent options for your bath salt salt.
  • Try to opt for essential oils over fragrance oils if you're trying to avoid artificial fragrance (and things like parabens, phthalates, and 1,4-dioxane).
  • You can use food colouring to add colour to your bath salts, or you can opt for other safe & natural colourants.

This Lavender and Rose Himalayan Salt Soak is perfect for relaxing in the tub after a hard day.  Roses are also a natural mood booster and have anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Vanilla and Eucalyptus Bath Salts I think that eucalyptus is one of my favourite spa scents of all time.  And vanilla is possibly a close second.  What makes this bath salft recipe super powered, though, is that eucalyptus essential oil acts as a natural anti-inflammatory agent and deodorant, while vanilla jojoba oil will help moisturize your skin as you soak.

This grapefruit bath salt recipe from Say Yes uses pink food colouring to give your salts that fresh, pink grapefruit look.  If you're not into food colouring, you can easily swap in one of these safe & natural colourants instead.

Who wouldn't want to bathe in mint mojito bath salts?  This recipe from Hello Glow is super easy to put together.  (Green food colouring optional.)

Create your own rainbow lavender bath salts (or sub in any other essential oil).  Use food colouring or these natural colourants.

Lemon and orange make these citrus bath salts an excellent pick-me-up.

Lavender mint bath salts from Wellness Mama are a classic.  Lavender is excellent for unwinding at the end of a long day, and mint will help soothe tired muscles.
