How to make Natural Bath Salt's

Making natural bath salts is a simple and enjoyable process that allows you to create a personalized and soothing addition to your bath routine. Here's a basic recipe for making natural bath salts:


  1. Epsom Salt: 2 cups
  2. Sea Salt or Himalayan Pink Salt: 1 cup
  3. Baking Soda: 1/2 cup
  4. Optional: Essential Oils: 10-20 drops (lavender, eucalyptus, chamomile, or your preferred scent)
  5. Optional: Dried Herbs or Flowers: 1/4 cup (lavender buds, rose petals, chamomile flowers, etc.)
  6. Optional: Natural Coloring: A few drops of natural food coloring (if desired)


  1. Mixing bowl
  2. Spoon or whisk
  3. Airtight container or jar for storage


  1. Combine Dry Ingredients:

    • In a mixing bowl, combine the Epsom salt, sea salt or Himalayan pink salt, and baking soda. Stir the dry ingredients together until well mixed.
  2. Add Essential Oils:

    • If using essential oils, add 10-20 drops to the dry mixture. Essential oils not only add fragrance but also contribute to the overall relaxation and therapeutic benefits of the bath salts. Stir well to distribute the essential oils evenly.
  3. Optional: Incorporate Dried Herbs or Flowers:

    • Add dried herbs or flowers to the mixture for added visual appeal and aromatherapy benefits. Popular choices include lavender buds, rose petals, chamomile flowers, or a combination of these. Mix well.
  4. Optional: Add Natural Coloring (if desired):

    • If you want to add a touch of color to your bath salts, you can use a few drops of natural food coloring. Be mindful of the quantity to avoid staining. Mix until the color is evenly distributed.
  5. Store in Airtight Container:

    • Transfer the bath salt mixture into an airtight container or jar for storage. Make sure the container is clean and dry.
  6. Let it Set:

    • Allow the bath salts to sit for a day or two to let the scents and colors meld. This step is optional but can enhance the overall experience.
  7. Use in Your Bath:

    • Add a handful (about 1/2 to 1 cup) of the natural bath salts to warm running bathwater. Stir the water to help the salts dissolve.
  8. Relax and Enjoy:

    • Immerse yourself in the soothing bath and enjoy the relaxation and benefits of the natural ingredients.

Feel free to experiment with different combinations of essential oils, dried herbs, and flowers to create bath salts that suit your preferences. These homemade bath salts also make thoughtful gifts for friends and family.
