Make Your Own Infused Bath Salts!

Bath Salts Whether you believe it or not, the holidays are quickly approaching! So I can’t wait to share this simple bath salt DIY with you. It’s a perfect gift for friends, coworkers and family. You could also host your own spa night and make these with friends! I’m always looking for an excuse to get friends together. I love that you can really make these bath salts special by customizing your essential oil blends and packaging them up beautifully. Not only will they be an excuse for some relaxing “me time”, but they will look stunning in your bathroom. Useful and decorative? I’m a sucker for multipurpose products. 😉

Bath SaltsSupplies:
essential oils
pink Himalayan salt
Bokek Dead Sea Salt
glass jars
wooden scoops
pretty labels

For this DIY I created three bath salt recipes. One to energize and invigorate, another to help you feel cozy and relaxed, and finally one to give you lovely happy feelings. 🙂 To make your infused bath salts…

Bath Salts DIY Step One: Start by measuring your salt by pouring it into the jar you plan on storing it in. Fill to the top. Once measured, pour your salt into a small mixing bowl.

Step Two: Add your combination of essential oils and mix together with a spoon thoroughly.

Step Three: Pour your infused salt back into your jar! I found using a funnel during this step really cut down on the mess!

Bath Salts DIYBath Salts Step Four: Add a beautiful label to your jar to add an extra special touch. Tie a scoop with a pretty ribbon around it to make your gift ready for giving.

Guys, that is seriously all! So easy right?

Bath Salts To use your bath salts, draw a hot bath and add 1-2 scoops. Soak and take in the beautiful aromas. Maybe add in a candle, a good book and some background music to make it the “me time” night you’ve been dreaming of! 😉

Here are my favorite infused recipes…

Bath Salts Invigorate:
For this recipe I used
-pink pink Himalayan salt
-6 drops of Sweet Orange
-6 drops of Grapefruit
-1 drop of Lemongrass

Bath Salts Serene:
-I used Bokek Dead Sea Salt since it’s known for softening the skin and relaxing the muscles!
-10 drops of Lavender
-3 drops of Eucalyptus

Bath Salts Affection:
-I also used Bokek Dead Sea Salt for this recipe
-7 drops of Ylang Ylang
-2 drops of Cinnamon leaf
-1 drop of Jasmine

  • Thanks for your sharing. The glass bath salt shaker looks beautiful, but high quality PET bottles are also being widely used in bath salts.

  • Hello I just found your site and I am for ever thankful. I love that you put your love into each and every project.

    I am Brand-new at DIY stuff and I am so excited. I want to start with the bath salts. I see you sell the salts in different sizes. I am not sure what size bath salt to buy? Can you please help me? Also how long does it take for me to receive the products. I need to get busy on making my Christmas gifts

    If only I found your site earlier on I would ok but now that I have I surely hope I am still in time for making my gifts.

    Sincerely thankful,

  • Love this DIY project. I know w couple who would love something like this for a Christmas gift. Thank you for sharing.

  • Awesome DIY project, they would make great party favors/ hostess gifts!

  • Don’t know why it didn’t post before, I would not buy doterra it’s a MLM company that tells its customers to take EOs internally or neat (undiluted) in order to move more products. Neither of which should ever be done.

    Mountain Rose herbs is a great supplier of bulk herbs and oils
    Floracopeia another EOs company that has a great reputation

  • I sell doTerra oils, you can buy them directly from the company here:

  • I’m a Wellness Advocate for doTerra! If you’re interested in ordering those oils, click on my link! You can contact me with any questions about what to buy or how to use them!

  • These are so beautiful and rather simple to make! Would make a lovely gift for my friends and family this Christmas.

  • Hi Aleeha! You can find them online through Amazon. We linked some in the post. 🙂 -Jacki

  • Those salts would make a perfect gift, thank you for sharing!

  • This is a great idea for a homemade gift! I’ve got one friend who is so hard to buy for but I think she would love a jar of this!

  • I really love all the DIY personal care type posts on your blog. I have tried making similar bath salts before – but my favorite thing to make is lip scrub with lavender.

  • Hey! Love this post. The pics are really nice and the colors are pretty swoony too. Just a word of caution…I notice that you’re using doterra eo’s (which is awesome, because they’re the best) but your link is to buy them on Amazon. Doterra is actively trying to stop this because it’s very easy to tamper with the bottles and still have them appear to be sealed. I can send you a video which demonstrates how this is done. It’s really quite disturbing. So please! Order your oils from
    I would love the chance to tell you more about getting a wholesale account of your own. There’s never any obligation to buy minimums or sell! Just enjoy whatever oils you want! Anyway, I don’t mean to SPAM your post…only to share a tidbit of info with you.

  • There’s someone on my list who is a little tricky to buy for, but this might be just the thing! So pretty too. <3
