I have been gifted various bath salts mixed by my friends over the last couple of years. They have always been a treasured treat, not just for myself, but also for special bath time with my son. I’m excited to finally be making my own and can’t wait to share the gifts with family & friends.

Here’s a few different mixtures to try, useful for this time of year. You can place the finished bath salts into wide mouth mason jars or disposable decorating bags {like the ones from Wilton}:

Peace, Love & Joy

{relaxes while uplifting your emotions}

  • 1 cup epsom salts
  • 1 tsp dried rose petals
  • 1/2 tsp fractionated {liquid} coconut oil
  • 3 drops Peace & Calming essential oil
  • 3 drops Joy essential oil

Relax Away

{relief for sore & tired muscles}

  • 1 cup of epsom salts
  • 4 drops of Pan Away essential oil
  • 4 drops of Lavender essential oil

Breathe Easy

{for colds & congestion}

  • 1 cup epsom salts
  • 1/2 cup baking soda
  • 2 tbsp mustard powder {fine dry mustard}
  • 5 drops of Peppermint essential oil
  • 5 drops of Eucalyptus Radiata essential oil {if you have a different Eucalyptus on hand, use that… this is just me personal preference}
  • 3 drops of Rosemary essential oil

To make these, simply combine dry ingredients in mixing bowl. Add liquid ingredients and essential oils. Stir well. Place in bag or jar. Done.

Pass the corresponding recipe onto the recipient of the bath salts and you’ve got a lovely little spa gift. Toss in one of the oils in the ingredients as a bonus 🙂 If you’re in Calgary, we are blessed with a Young Living office right here, so you can order online and swing by for pickup. If you need shipping, within Canada, just place your order before December 13th!

Happy Making!
