Bath Salts: Lavender Mint – Homemade Bath Salts Recipe.
Nothing says I love you mom on Mother’s Day like a homemade gift of lavender mint scented bath salts …
packaged nice and pretty in a mason jar, of course.
And, no, this gift doesn’t say, Mom you smell stinky and need to take a bath. Pronto.
Nope. Not at all. This talking bath salts gift says, Mom I love you so much that I want you to pamper yourself with a nice, hot steaming lavender and mint scented tub. And, yes, please let me pour you another glass of wine …
This mason jar project is so easy you can whip it up in 10 minutes. Tops.
lavender mint bath salt recipe*
Lavender Paper & Ribbon
1 1/2 cups Epsom salt
1/2 cup Baking Soda
4-5 drops lavender oil
2-3 drops peppermint oil
15-20 drops lilac soap colorant (optional)
*some affiliate links included.
In a large bowl, mix Epsom salt and baking soda. Add 4-5 drops of lavender oil. Mix well. Add 2-3 drops peppermint oil. Mix well. (Optional) Add 15-20 lilac soap colorant until reach desired color.
All that’s left is to package it up in a mason jar. I cut out a piece of lavender paper to fit the wide mouth lid (just trace the lid onto a piece of paper) and added a small wood scoop, lavender ribbon and faux lavender sprig.
Oh, and be forewarned, this gift will elicit many, many hugs and kisses from mom.
Happy Mother’s Day!
P.P.S. My wood scoop came with a canister set, but I found a selection here on Amazon (click here)
