Lemon Bath Salts

Post number 200 !! (can not believe I made it this far...)

This is so easy to make, perfect idea for the kids to make their own gifts which they can give to a teacher or relative or even their friends.

But, I am not saying, you can not make it - this is just a simpler recipe than my Vanilla & Lavender Bath Salts, only 3 ingredients, really, I actually think most of you know this one.

I have decided on Lemon, as I haven't used my Lemon essential oil much, yet.  You can use any other essential oil instead, all depends on your taste or in the case of making it as a gift, what you have available or what the other person likes.

You can half, double, or triple this as you wish - this is the basics you will need:

- 1 cup Epsom Salts
- 1/2  t Lemon Essential Oil
- Few drops of Yellow Food Coloring

To get one color : Mix all the ingredients well

To layer colors : Mix the Epsom Salts and the Lemon Essential Oil - divide the mixture in two - add Food coloring to one half, mix well.

Pour the Salts into a nice container (I used an old Nutella bottle) - or if you are using two colors, do them by the table spoonful, layering (which I did).

Decorate your container with a label (I used PicMonkey to make mine), a golden-green leaf, some ribbon (I wanted some glittery stuff here as you can see), add a wooden scoop and you are done.

For the adventurers - how about making an Ombre Bath Salt in a larger bottle ? Adjust the colors as you go along...

Making the actual Bath Salts takes no more than 5 minutes.

Quick, easy, cheap craft !


Linking up with these cool parties:


  1. Well done for your 200th post and the easy craft! I've done something like this before, which I learned here in South Africa.

Oh, I've also got two parties that you can add to your list if you want: Picture Perfect Party Linky and Make My Saturday Sweet.
