How to Make Lavender Bath Salts
Lavender Bath Salts with pure essential oil is a lovely way to relax after a long day. You can easily make your own Lavender scented bath salts at home.
Package the bath salts up in little cellophane bags and tie with a pretty ribbons for lovely and inexpensive handmade Lavender gifts. They are really simple to make too and a lot cheaper than the ready made Lavender aromatherapy bath salts you find in the stores.
These pretty bath salts can also be placed in a larger decorative air tight container and set in the bathroom for both use and decoration.
Lavender Bath Salts Recipe
To make this Lavender Bath Salts recipe you will need to purchase quality bath salts (not those tiny colored fake chemical scented crystals.) I like to use bath salts from the Dead Sea and I believe you may get these at your local Walmart. The other ingredients include Lavender essential oil, and dried Lavender buds.
You will need a large container with a tight fitting lid preferably not plastic. Later on you will need something to put the finished bath salts in if your is plan to use them as gifts.
Place the bath salts into the container and add drops of essential oil to them. I like to use about 25-30 drops for a Mason jar sized container. Make sure you leave room for the salts to move around as you will be shaking this to distribute the oil.
Next add your dried flower buds to the container and shake, shake and shake some more. You want everything mixed well inside so it is evenly distributed.
Let these bath salts sit for about a week, shaking periodically every now and then, so that everything blends together. After about a week they will be ready for repackaging or use in the bath. Simply add a handful to your hot bath and enjoy the soothing and calming benefits of Lavender. I cannot think of a nicer way to relax after working hard all day than a Lavender bath.
If you don't care for the the little Lavender flower buds floating in your tub then simply omit them from the recipe. You may also add dried rose petals either alone or in combination with the Lavender flower buds. Add other pure essential oils too like rose or maybe a little eucalyptus. Play around with the Lavender bath salt recipe and have some fun.

You may keep a clear jar of these along with a scoop beside your bath for use at a moments notice. These homemade Lavender bath salts are both decorative and useful at the same time.
I like to make this Lavender bath salt recipe for Christmas gifts and sometimes I buy little bags, fill them up and tie with a ribbon. I package an individual use size bag and place inside a decorative basket or pretty dish. This way the recipient will be able to place them on their vanity too. The little individual bags are great stocking stuffers for those Christmas stockings and are unique gift idea!
