Luxe for Less: DIY Bath Salts

I do love a good ol' bath all year round and especially in this Winter time that we're slowly approaching now, bath time seems like to be the best time.

Usually I'm a bath at night time kinda gal and it's almost like a 'time out' before bed just to relax my muscles and prepare myself for the land of nod. This Bath Salt DIY includes less than 5 ingredients and can be made all from the comfort of your own Chemistry lab, I mean- kitchen. 

Not only do these Bath Salts smell heavenly, they're also aesthetically pleasing and make for a gorgeous decoration in the bathroom too.

As I generally have baths at night, I've chosen essential oils that are going to help with the relaxation process such as Chamomile and Lavender to mix around with my Epsom Salts. 

Most people, myself included- are deficient of magnesium so what better way than to get back those all important minerals and nutrients than having a bath filled with Epsom Salts, especially since the benefits are so fantastic!



DIY BATH SALTS
with Lavender and Chamomile

What You'll Need:


1+ 3/4 cups of Epsom Salts
1/2 cup Lectric Soda Crystals**
10-20 mL of your choice of essential oils
Food colouring (optional)



Mix together all the ingredients, adding a drop or two of food colouring (if you so desire) and voila! Literally that simple! Make sure you mix it well enough so that the essential oils and colour is distributed evenly throughout the mixture before you use/ store it. **In place of the Soda Crystals, you may choose to use 3-4 Tbsp of Baking Powder which helps to soften the water and leaves your skin feeling super soft too!




Unknowingly, I've been conducting this DIY for years but have never really thought to make it in a batch as big as this! Now I have Bath Salts at my disposal for the next few months- score!

  1. I am definitely going to try and find all of those ingredients! I love bath salts and have been using Kneipp ones for ages. Might be a fun idea to try to make a bottle myself!

  4. This is gorgeous. I was wonderful how your salt was colored so the food coloring makes sense. Haha. I think lavender & sweet orange would be a fun combination. :]
