As you have probably gathered, I have been kind of obsessed with Homemade Beauty products lately. I wanted to do another homemade beauty post before Mother’s Day. This homemade bath salts recipe for Lavender Foot & Body Soak is SO EASY and it will not break the bank.
So I actually did two recipes. I did one recipe as a “foot soak” using Sea Salt and I did the other as a “bath soak” using Epsom salt. They are of course interchangeable.
Homemade Bath Salts: Lavender Sea Salt Foot Soak
Fine Sea Salt
Course Sea Salt
I grabbed that super cute container for $1 at the Dollar Tree if my memory serves me. I also want to add that when you are purchasing dried lavender I would just make sure it is only dried lavender and it has not been treated with anything else.
You could just use fine or course sea salt, but I liked the texture of both. I did find Sea Salt at the Dollar Tree for $1! Mix 1 part fine salt and 1 part coarse salt. I added about 6 drops of essential oil per cup of salt. You could add more or less. I then added a few dried lavender buds. Mix well.
I think this turned out so very pretty and would be lovely as a gift.
Homemade Bath Salts: Lavender Body Soak
Container. Again another Dollar Tree score or did I Target Dollar Rack…When I see cheap containers I always grab them.
Just layer salt, essential oil, and lavender buds.
Then give it a good shake before adding your last layer and top with dried lavender.
I think it turned out lovely!
I wanted to mention, you can purchase Epsom salts that are already lavender scented. I found these small 16 oz bags at….yes, the Dollar Tree for $1 each!
