I rarely take baths but when I do, I love adding beautifully scented bath salts to my tub! Aren’t bath salts just the best way to turn a bath from ordinary to luxurious!? And making your own bath salts is really simple! So today I am showing you how to quickly make amazing strawberry bath salts! I promise once you make them, you will want to try them in every flavor!
To make your own Homemade Bath Salts, you will need:
- Epsom Salt
- Abbey & Sullivan Fragrance Oils: Strawberry
- Hinged Lid Glass Jars – 4 pack
- Simple Wood Favor Basket Set
- Red food coloring (optional)
This is a very forgiving recipe. A little of this, a little of that and voila you have an amazing DIY spa-like product that makes for an impressive gift!
You will begin by placing some bath salts into a bowl. Add a few drops of your fragrance oil to stir. Keep adding fragrance oil until the salts smell as fragrant as you like. You only need a few drops for about a cup of salts, so add slowly and carefully.
At this point you can package these up in a cute glass jar and be done! So this next step is purely optional, but I love adding a few drops of food coloring to the bath salts so give them a little color! Plus, who wants Strawberry Bath Salts that aren’t at least tinted to be the same color as strawberries!?
The great thing about adding food coloring is that while it may color the bath water just a tiny bit, it is not enough to actually color your skin. So add as little or as much as you prefer!
I packaged my bath salts in a beautiful glass hinged jar! And then I put a few strawberries in a beautiful wooden basket to create the perfect gift!
I know that I would LOVE to sit in a bath, eating strawberries and enjoying a little time to myself on Mother’s Day! This is the perfect gift to help any mother relax on this special day!
Do you have any plans for Mother’s Day?
