Rosemary-Citrus Bath Salts


If you want to pamper yourself, soak in these fragrant bath salts–you'll feel so relaxed and refreshed! The blend of rosemary and lemon essential oils smells wonderful, and the epsom salt helps relax your tired muscles. Tea Tree Oil, which is good for your skin, is also an ingredient in these bath salts.

These bath salts are very easy to make and they also make a great homemade gift, so you may want to keep this in mind for holiday gift-giving! You can package the bath salts in cellophane bags or in jars with tight-fitting lids. Add pieces of ribbon to tie the bags or tie ribbon around the rim of your jars for a special touch! You need to use 2 cups of these bath salts per bath, so that is the minimum you would want to give as a gift. I like to make larger batches of these bath salts for myself and keep them in a large jar so I have them on hand when I want to use them.

ROSEMARY-CITRUS BATH SALTS by Cottage Flavor 
Makes 2 cups of bath salts–enough for 1 bath(Make larger batches by doubling or tripling the recipe)

  • 2 cups Epsom Salt
  • 6 drops Rosemary Essential Oil
  • 5 drops Lemon Essential Oil
  • 3 drops Tea Tree Oil
Put Epsom salt in a zip-loc bag and add drops of Rosemary Essential Oil; mix oil into the Epsom salt by squishing ingredients together in the closed bag until oil is evenly mixed in with the salt, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add the Lemon Essential Oil and blend oil into the Epsom salt mixture in the same way, until well blended. Then add the Tea Tree Oil, and repeat mixing process until all ingredients are well blended.
If you're not using your bath salts right away, store in a zip-loc bag or jar with a tight-fitting lid. To use, add 2 cups of bath salts under running warm or hot water in your tub. Soak for at least 10 minutes. 
To give as gifts, package the bath salts in a cellophane bag tied with ribbon or in a glass jar with a tight-fitting lid. Add a tag with directions on how to use:

Have you made your own bath salts before, and do you have a favorite way of making them?
