How to make your own bath salts!

Homemade Bath Salts

Bath salts are surprisingly simple to make, and can be appreciated by anybody on your holiday gift list. The Epsom salts in this mix will do wonders for tired muscles, and we’ve come up with some variations that are less flowery than your traditional bath salts. But hey, if flowery is your thing, go for it!

One of the great things about homemade bath salts is how easy they are to customize. We like to make up a big batch of the base mixture, then divide it and add different ingredients and essential oils to the smaller amounts. That way you can make small batches that suit the tastes of everybody on your list, from your best friend with his secret love of lavender, to your sister-in-law who will choose rosemary over roses any day. And for those who are bothered by scent or just prefer to keep it simple, the base recipe is luxurious enough on its own.

Make sure that you have airtight containers on hand for storing your bath salts, or to present them as gifts. Small glass jars are a common choice for showing off the beauty of your finished salts. Plastic can be a safer choice for the bathroom, but be sure your containers are PET plastic as essential oils can degrade other plastics. Commercial beauty products are often sold in PET plastic containers – save them up, take off or cover the labels, and reuse them for your own bath salts!

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Westpoint Ingredients

  • 1 Cup of Epsom Salt
  • 1 Cup of Coarse Himalayan Salt
  • 1 Cup of Buttermilk Powder
  • 1/2 Cup of Baking Soda - No Aluminium
  • 1/2 Cup of Organic Whole Lavender Flowers

Other Ingredients

  • 15-30 drops Lavender Essential Oil

Method

1) Place all of the ingredients into a large bowl or sealable bag. Mix well, being sure to break up any lumps.
2) An old standby. Lavender is one of the most commonly used scents for bath and beauty products, and do any of us really wonder why?
3) To create one of these variations, add the essential oil or extract to the base salts mixture, a few drops at a time. This may be best to do in a sealable bag, so you can give it a good shake to mix between additions. Continue to add a few drops and mix, until you have as much scent as you desire. If you are adding dried botanicals, you can just throw them in whole after adding the essential oils, and mix well.
4) A good idea is to grind up your botanical ingredients in a mortar and pestle or food processor first. Or, if you want to have the whole botanicals to look at in the jar but don’t want them floating around in the water, you can put the salts into a small sachet when you put them in the bath.
