Nothing beats a relaxing bath at the end of a long week… and don’t forget the candles!

These Homemade Jasmine Bath Salts are the perfect addition to your blissful escape… and they also make a fabulous Gift in a Jar, too!

What You’ll Need…

  • 1 Cup Epsom Salt
  • 1 tbsp. Baking Soda
  • 3 drops Jasmine Essential Oil ~ or add a few extra drops for a stronger scent.  {I used this one from Vitamin World, or you can find it on Amazon!}
  • Mason Jar {8 oz.}
  • Optional: 1 – 2 drops of  Food Coloring {to slightly tint the bath salts} ~ I used just 1 drop of red, to give the bath salts a slight hint of pink tint… you could skip this step, or even use 2 drops for a darker tint.
  • Ribbon or Twine

    Thank you for posting this. I have been thinking of making my own bath salts recently. How much would you suggest to put in to a bath?

  3. Jane says:

    Thank you for the recipes! I’m making the bath salts. I did go to the place you recommened for the oils, however I did not find Jasmine, but I did find Lavender.

    I love this receipe. Just a quick question, would the food coloring come off in the bath?

    • Heidi says:

      Hi Tricia… the food coloring is so minimal it doesn’t affect the bath. You can just skip that step if you’d prefer. They smell just as yummy when left white! ;)
