I don’t get to take baths as often as I did before I had three kids, but I do try to take one at least once a week. They are so relaxing and a great way to decompress!

Adding bath salts to your bath has so many health benefits and just adds to the relaxation of the whole experience.

I wen t searching for a good recipe and ended up creating my own that I LOVE! We used this recipe for Christmas gifts this year and it was a HUGE hit!

    The next ingredient I added was Pink Himalayan Salt. The reasons were two fold….

What you’ll need

  • 1 cup Epsom Salt. You can order here.

  • 1 cup Himalayan Sea Salt. Here.

  • 1-3 Tablespoons of Dried Flower petals {optional}. Here.

  • Glass test tubes. Here. There is nothing like gorgeous packaging <3 I used these.

  • 10-20 drops of Essential oils. I use Young Living and order through a friend. You can order it here

Mix equal parts Epsom salt and Himalayan salt (depending on how big you want your batch to be.)

I love the way the pink Himalayan salt looks because the crystals are a bit bigger.

Mix 3 tablespoons dried flower petals per cup of salt.

 I try to include my littles in projects like this because they love it so much.

Add 5 drops of your preferred essential oil per cup of salt. I used a combination of different scents.

 You can also use empty oil bottles. The salt will draw the left over oil out of the bottle. I just took the caps off and tipped them in the salt for a bit.

Mix until combined then pour in your test tube.

Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy!! <3
