Homemade Citrus Scented Bath Salts Recipe
- Mineral and Dead Sea Salt
- 2-3 drops orange essential oil
- 2-3 drops lemon essential oil
- 1 tbsp orange zest
- 1 tbsp lemon zest
In a bowl mix together ingredients until well combined. The orange and lemon zest will naturally color the bath salts, which gives is the bright yellow color you see in the picture. Once your ingredients are mixed together pour them into a mason jar or another air tight container.
I’m big fan of lemon scented spa recipes you can make at home. I’ve been waiting to share some with you for a few months and now that the weather is warmer it seems like an appropriate time to start sharing them! On Friday I showed you how to make homemade lemon soap with only 3 ingredients
and later this week I’ll have another lemon recipe. You can kind of guess where I’m headed with it since they’re all spa recipes and it’s a Mother’s Day gift idea, but I’m going to share with you anyways because I love it and I think you will too. :)
Hi! I have pinned almost all of these amazing scrubs and salts! I have a friend’s birthday coming up and i want to make two scrubs and two salts. Any favorites?
So pretty and I love citrus scents! Do you think you could use Epsom salts instead?
I have made all of my bath salts with epsom salts and they have been great.
Can you tell me the amount of salt to use for this recipe?
How much of the Mineral & Dead Sea do you need to use.
Hi! What a cute idea. For how long are they actually good, considering there’s zest in them?
