Have You Tried Relaxing with Bath Salts?bath salts DIY Essential Oils How to use

I love a relaxing bath. Mind you it doesn’t happen very often, but when my wonderful husband takes kid duty for the evening, I love to soak in a warm bath with my book. These Essential Oil Bath Salts are the perfect addition. I should also mention, I made these as gifts this year for our children’s teachers and for some of my business team. They were a great hit! Here is what you will need:

1 cup Epsom Salts (This 2 lb. bag on Amazon is a great deal)

1 cup Kosher Salt

1/2 cup Baking Soda

15-20 Drops Essential Oil of Choice

You can either put all of the above ingredients in a jar and add the essential oils to the top after shaking the jar to mix. If you are making several jars as gifts, multiply the recipe for as many jars as you want to make and mix in a large bowl. Scoop out roughly 2 1/2 cups into each jar and add essential oils. Add decorative fabric to the top of jar lids if desired, and now you have a great gift!

Note: these purple jars on Amazon are also a new personal favorite!
