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. 😉
–pink Himalayan salt
–Bokek Dead Sea Salt
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…
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!
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?
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…
For this recipe I used
-pink pink Himalayan salt
-6 drops of Sweet Orange
-6 drops of Grapefruit
-1 drop of Lemongrass
-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
-I also used Bokek Dead Sea Salt for this recipe
-7 drops of Ylang Ylang
-2 drops of Cinnamon leaf
-1 drop of Jasmine
Homemade gifts are usually the best gifts. 🙂 Enjoy, friends! Lots of love, Sav.

Where’d you get your little shovels/scoops?
And how fine of salt?
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.
I love doTERRA!! Their oils are so pure! Education is key 🙂
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 www.mountainroseherbs.com
Floracopeia another EOs company that has a great reputation www.floracopeia.com
I sell doTerra oils, you can buy them directly from the company here: http://mydoterra.com/rkennedy
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! http://mydoterra.com/rkennedy
Hi Aleeha! You can find them online through Amazon. We linked some in the post. 🙂 -Jacki
