DIY Relaxing Bath Salts

Is anything more relaxing than soaking in a hot bath with some soothing scents?  Nope.  Not a thing!  Okay, guys, this literally is the easiest thing in the world to make!  And as an added bonus, the supplies are super cheap.

You will need:

  • Sea salt
  • Epsom salt
  • Baking soda
  • Herbal tea - rose hips or hibiscus are especially pretty
  • Lavendar essential oil (or whatever aroma most relaxes you)
  • Air tight container

Then, simply combine all of your ingredients into your container, stir, and relax!

The basic ratio is: 6 tablespoons sea salt, 3 tablespoons epsom salt, 1 tablespoons baking soda, 1 tablespoon tea, 1-2 drops of essential oil.  Of course, use more or less oil to your personal taste.  I doubled the amount to fill my container. 

Add as much of the salts to your bath as you like - I like to use a heaping tablespoon.  Enjoy!


  1. This is such a lovely recipe - I'd be tempted to leave the lid off the jar in the bathroom to scent the air and give a bit of that same relaxing feeling (as taking a bath) to all who entered the room.

    1. That is such a good idea! I might just go and take the lid off mine now :)

  2. I've always wanted to try to make my own bath salts. Never new it was so easy! : ) The aroma must be amazing too! Like having your own spa at home! ♥

    1. I didn't know it would be so easy either- I was worried the oils would make it clumpy, but it doesn't at all!
