DIY Gift Ideas: Holiday Bath Salts

Since Christmas is right around the corner (isn’t it creeping up so fast?) I’ve been coming up with lots of new DIY gift ideas. I really love giving homemade gifts around the holidays. It’s a nice way of showing someone a little love without spending much money. Plus, anything homemade is just extra special.  Here is one of my favorite recipes ever.


DIY Gift Ideas: Holiday Bath Salts

This recipe is super easy! It just takes a few ingredients and very little time. With just a few dollars and about 10 minutes, you have a super cute homemade gift!



Feel free to double this if you are using a bigger container. This recipe fit perfectly in this glass jar I picked up at Hobby Lobby. (I love that it comes with a little scoop.)

  • Glass jar or container
  • 1/2 cup epsom salt
  • 1/4 cup baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons of sea salt
  • 10 drops of coloring (depending on the shade you want)
  • 10 drops of essential oils (again, depending on how strong you want the smell)

To make it, mix the soda and salts together. Then add the coloring and lastly the oils.

That’s it! The oil I used for this was Stress Away. It is one of my absolute favorite essential oils smells ever.  It might sound silly, but it just makes me happy. I feel like it’s a total mood booster for me.

When you’re all done, tie a ribbon around it or add a gift tag. It’s seriously that simple and I think anyone that gets this as a gift will adore it!
