Make your own Bath Salts with this Guide


1 cup Epsom salts (available at drug stores)

A few drops of Food coloring (use the kind in plastic bottles so you can squeeze out a few drops at a time)

A few drops of Essential oil (found in crafts stores; sometimes called potpourri oil)

Ceramic bowl (not plastic, since it will absorb the scent of the essential oil)

A Large Spoon

Pipette or eye dropper (found in drug stores)


1) Pour one cup of salts into the ceramic bowl.

2) Add a few drops of food coloring to the mixture.

3) Stir well until blended.

4) Use the pipette or eye dropper to add several drops of your favorite essential oil.

5) Stir to blend.

FOR PACKAGING: Pour the salts into a jar and tie on a bow and you’ve got a lovely gift for a favorite teacher, a good friend, or even for your mother or grandmother.

Attach a small card which reads: “Bath Salts - add one to two tablespoons to water as tub fills for a relaxing soak.”
