Happy Friday, my friends! Any exciting plans this weekend? I’m hosting a mini spa party with my best friend and our daughters. Its going to be a fun little girls night in! In preparation for our party I’ve been making spa party favors. Today I’m sharing a Homemade bath salts recipe. This lavender bath salts recipe is simple to make and is perfect for giving away as a gift!
Homemade lavender bath salts recipe
1 cup Mineral and Dead Sea Salt
1-2 drops of lavender essential oil
4-6 drops of soap colorant
In a bowl mix together salts and lavender essential oil. Add in coloring and mix until well combined. If you prefer a darker color increase colorant one drop at a time until you achieve desired shade. Store in an airtight container to allow the lavender essential oil to infuse the salts.You can leave out the colorant if you would like to keep this recipe as natural as possible. Another great idea is to mix in your favorite herbs to the mix.
In case you are wondering I found the mason jars at Target, the mineral and dead sea salt at Michaels, and the colorant at Michaels as well.
Here are few more ideas you might enjoy:
Fill sachets or mason jars embellished with twine and paper to give the bath salts as a gift.
Wow! That is easy.
This a gorgeous idea. I bet they smell amazing!
If you have a minute to spare I’d be thrilled if you could pop by my blog and share this project at my Say G’Day Saturday linky party! I’m back after a very long break and would love it if you could link up!
Hope your weekend is fabulous-enjoy your spa party!
Best wishes for a great weekend,

Thanks for sharing! Stopping by from TT&J!
So glad you shared this project. I’ve wanted to know how to make bath salts, especially lavender. We have a big garden tub but rarely use it, think that would change once I make some of these bath salts. Thanks for sharing.
Very easy and cute!! Love them in the mason jars. What a fun thing to do…a spa night with your girls and best friend. Enjoy!
I’ll bet it smells divine!
This is looking amazing. Thank you for the tutorial. I am pinning it. Pretty pictures.
Beautiful! WHat a perfect homemade gift idea. Thanks for linking this up to Monday Funday!
I bet it smells amazing! I want to take a bath now, with these salts :)
This looks so dreamy, a bath is calling me!! :) Michelle
I love the smell of lavender … I bet it would be awesome with some rosemary mixed into it as well! Now to find some time to take a bath! :)
Looks like a great scrub. It’s the perfect color and I’m sure it smells fantastic.
I’d be thrilled if you’d link up at this week’s Off the Hook!
Love them all! Can almost smell them through the computer . Found you over on Mom on Time Out’s link party.
Love all of these bath scrubs! I just made a scrub with coconut oil, raw sugar, honey, and vanilla :)
Very nice job. good ideas!
Do you 1 cup mineral salt and 1 cup Dead Sea salt? Or a combination of both?
Thank you! :)
Nicole » Hi Nicole, the container I bought from Michaels is a mixture of both. It made it super easy to make scented bath salts! Thanks for stopping by!
These are so awesome. For some odd reason I can’t print it off to take it with me to the store. Can you plese send it
to my e-mail so I can get the the instructions and take it with me to the store. Thank You for such an awesome idea.
I’m glad your blog is still up in 2017. I see most comments are from 2013. I made the Lavender soap you shared. It’s so easy and lots of fun!! Now I will try the lavender bath salts. :-)
