Lemon Rosemary Bath Salts

If you’ve been following along the last few months you may have noticed that I enjoy homemade bath salts, sugar scrubs, and soap making. Perhaps it’s the warm weather but I find myself infusing my bath salts, sugar scrubs, and soaps with lemon essential oil quite often. Today I’m sharing another favorite bath salts recipe with you. This homemade lemon rosemary bath salts recipe is perfect for the Summer months, with an invigorating lemon scent and fresh rosemary.
Lemon Rosemary Bath Salts

Last week I had the the honor of guest posting on TidyMom where I shared this recipe for homemade lemon rosemary bath salts. Using ingredients you may already have in your home, this bath salt recipe is easy to make and cost a fraction of what you might pay for in store.


2 cups epsom salt

1/2 cup baking soda

2-3 tbsp fresh rosemary; finely chopped

6-8 drops lemon essential oil

2-3 tbsp lemon zest (optional)

In a bowl combine epsom salt and baking soda. Add in half of the essential oil drops, mix, then add in the remaining drops. Mix in the chopped rosemary and lemon zest if you decide to use it until fully combined. Store in an airtight container.

I like using mason jars tied with ribbon or twine. Plus who doesn’t love receiving a gift in a jar? Oh how I hope the mason jar craze never fades, they’re just so fun to work with!

    Love it when you put your wonderful recipes on for personal care products. I’m not one to use pretties (except for lotions) but since I’ve been printing your recipes out for them I’m planning to get some of ingredients for them and make away. I was thinking it might be something really nice to do with daughter/2 gd’s (13&16). Would be a nice activity to do together. So glad I found your blog to get me inspired to make them. Happy Days

      Michelle » Hi Michelle, I purchased the small wooden spoons at Hobby Lobby in their paper crafting aisles. They are food safe and located next to the scrapbook brads. Thanks for stopping by!

    I love all of your bath creations, Crystal. I have been wanting to make some myself, but I haven’t gotten around to it yet. I think Bath salts are my favorite, and the lemon rosemary sounds amazing. Thanks for sharing!
